Find The Balmoral at the city’s most prestigious address, where the Old Town stops and the New Town starts. No 1 Princes Street.
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. The hotel’s majestic clock defines the city’s skyline and since the day the property 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 the kilted doormen will guide you into the hotel.
From Michelin-starred dining at Number One to traditional Afternoon Tea under the glittering glass dome of Palm Court or a relaxed family lunch at Hadrian’s Brasserie; The Balmoral has a venue to satisfy every appetite and occasion.
Some of the most important guests are also the smallest. From the Families R Forte passport to the Owl Teddy Turndown Service, The Balmoral’s Families R Forte Programme makes sure junior guests are just as pampered as the grown-ups. Older ones can ask for films, have a bespoke teen itinerary created for them by the Concierge team, or even test out teen treatments at The Balmoral Spa.
