The Balmora

The Balmora

In brief: A super-fancy Edinburgh landmark with the most prestigious address in the city – 1 Princes Street.
Our highlight: The top-end suites come with stellar views of Edinburgh and personalised experiences like whisky tasting or a private tour of Hamilton & Inches’ silver workshop.
Insider guide: If you’re going to name your hotel after the Queen’s estate, you’d best have some dynamite in your pockets. Sure enough, The Balmoral does: each of its 168 rooms has been individually designed by Olga Polizzi, and its restaurants – Brasserie Prince by Alain Roux (which celebrates the ’new alliance’ of Scottish produce and classic French cooking), the uber-chic afternoon tea spot Palm Court and the Michelin-starred Number One – are complemented by the Balmoral Bar and the dedicated whisky bar, Scotch, which stocks more than 500 malts, blends and vintages from around the country.
