The Balmoral Hotel

Edinburgh, Scotland


For over a century, The Balmoral has found a home at Edinburgh’s most prestigious address, No. 1 Princes Street. A landmark in the centre of the city, the historic building’s grand clock still dominates the skyline, while its enviable location, views, hospitality and five-star facilities provide the perfect retreat. The Balmoral began life as a grand railway hotel and continues to respect the traditions set by its founders, right down to the kilted doormen.


Located at Number One Princes Street, on the city's main shopping thoroughfare, the five-star Balmoral is only a short walk from Edinburgh Castle, our nation's monuments, museums and galleries and the new Scottish Parliament.
