You will find The Balmoral at Edinburgh’s most prestigious address, No. 1 Princes Street, where the Old Town stops and the New Town begins. Our hotel’s majestic clock defines the city’s skyline and since the day we opened in 1902 it has run three minutes fast to ensure you will never miss your train. The Balmoral is a grand railway hotel where our porters can still be organised to whisk guests from the station hall to the reception desk, and our kilted doormen will guide you into the hotel.
All of our rooms have complimentary Wi-Fi, interactive entertainment and many have views of Edinburgh Castle and the Old Town.
Number One has retained its Michelin star for the 13th consecutive year. It offers a truly outstanding culinary experience featuring modern Scottish cuisine. For a more informal experience, visit Hadrian’s Brasserie, which also serves the very best of regional Scottish produce. Or sample our award-winning Afternoon Tea at Palm Court.
A comprehensive range of treatments will help you unwind in our award-wining Balmoral Spa. The 15-metre pool is perfect for a quick dip, or relax in the sauna and steam room.
