5 star luxuries, lavish design and an excellent location come together at The Balmoral to create the perfect short break in Edinburgh. Situated on the famous Princes Street, The Balmoral is a landmark in itself and is just a short stroll from Holyrood Park and Edinburgh Castle.

This fantastic location is only the beginning at The Balmoral, where the daily stresses of life drift away in the indoor pool, sauna, steam room, ESPA, gym and ghd treatment rooms. After this head to the hotel’s Number One Restaurant and sample some of Scotland’s finest food, in an elegant restaurant which has been awarded a coveted Michelin Star.

For a lighter meal there is the relaxed Hadrian’s Restaurant at The Balmoral. After a delectable dinner end the night with a colourful cocktail, malt whisky or glass of champagne in Scotland’s only Bollinger Bar in the Palm Court or the hotel’s recently refurbished Balmoral Bar.

At the end of the day head to your spacious guest room at The Balmoral, where you will find the same level of care, attention and luxury that flows through the entire hotel. With air-conditioning, a large bed, interactive TV, internet access and elegant en-suite in every room you can be sure of a great night's sleep. The Balmoral received the coveted and prestigious AA Inspectors’ Choice Five Red Star Award at the 2010 AA Hospitality Awards. As one of only a few hotels in Scotland to achieve this merit, The Balmoral, confirms its place at the top of the Scottish hospitality ladder.
