Situated in the heart of Scotland’s capital city, the Balmoral Hotel was first opened in 1902 and in the tradition of the great railway hotels, it was designed only after its architects had undertaken an extensive tour of Europe’s finest hotels. The Balmoral as it stands today, is a classic Edwardian building, boasting the noble character of a Scottish baronial home and the classic sophistication of a leading international hotel.

Guests can relax in the elegant surroundings of Palm Court, an ideal venue for morning coffee or afternoon tea. The bedrooms, regal in style and tastefully decorated, offer breathtaking views over the city. The Balmoral Hotel offers 186 en-suite guestrooms including 21 luxurious suites, some of which boast four-poster beds and individual fireplaces and as one would expect from a five-star hotel, the facilities in each room are second to none.

The health spa and fitness centre at Balmoral is the perfect place to soothe any aches after a tough day on the links and its facilities include a pool, sauna, steam-room, gymnasium and an array of health and beauty treatments. With respect to dining options, one is literally spoilt for choice. Guests may choose between the relaxed atmosphere of the Lobby Bar and NB’s Pub, the chic Hadrian’s Restaurant for cosmopolitan dining and the Number One Restaurant, which serves the finest gourmet cuisine in a truly elegant setting.
