The Balmoral, a Rocco Forte hotel

1 Princes Street, Edinburgh, United Kingdom , EH2 2EQ

Why The Balmoral, a Rocco Forte hotel

The perfect marriage of tradition and modernity, each of the 187 rooms has been individually designed by Rocco Forte Hotel’s Director of Design Olga Polizzi. Elegant and stylish with unmistakably Scottish accents, each of our 20 Edinburgh suites are generous with magnificent views. Edinburgh welcomes thousands of visitors to the world’s biggest arts festivals, including the famous Edinburgh International festival and the Fringe. Even when it’s not festival time, you'll find plenty to do. Edinburgh Castle, the Royal Museum, the City Art Centre and the Scottish National Portrait Gallery are all nearby, as are the designer boutiques and department stores of Multrees Walk. With their inside knowledge, our Edinburgh Concierge can help you discover the city’s many hidden gems. Edinburgh International Airport is just 25 minutes by car from the hotel. Brasserie Prince was launched in 2018 celebrating a 'new alliance': matching the very best of Scottish produce with classic French cooking. At Bar Prince the ambience is relaxed yet convivial. Guests can enjoy a pre-dinner aperitif, sit in the cosy library by the fire for an after dinner drink or sample cocktails at the long, marble bar counter for a fun night out. The hotel’s Michelin-starred restaurant, Number One, offers modern Scottish dining with the finest service. Head Chef of Number One, Mark Donlad places an emphasis on creative dishes whilst promoting the very best of Scotland by using only the freshest local ingredients. Palm Court, set in the heart of the hotel, is an Edinburgh institution that’s as glittering as its glass dome and Venetian chandelier. The place to sample modern Scottish Afternoon Tea and a wide selection of loose leaf teas, coffee and pastries. Sip vintage champagne as a harpist provides the perfect accompaniment. The Balmoral’s signature whisky bar, SCOTCH, pays homage to Scotland’s national drink and is home to one of Edinburgh’s largest collections. Take a seat on one of the tweed sofas and let a kilted Whisky Ambassadors help you choose from over 500 varieties
