The Balmoral Hotel Edinburgh features Victorian architecture and modern-day Olga Polizzi glory. This hotel and landmark rekindle the Renaissance splendor back to life. This stunning property is a part of the Rocco Forte hotels group. It occupies the city's top slots for exotic getaways. The luxury hotel also enhances the historic city of Edinburgh in a somewhat timeless demeanor.

It endorses the staple countryside heritage, heartwarming hospitality, and courtesy. This lets guests indulge in an authentic taste of the Scottish heritage.

History

The Balmoral Hotel Edinburgh has stood unabated for over a century as the emblem of Scottish fine arts. It has a Grand Clock tower dominating the town's skyline. In addition, the property sits in the city's heart, east of Princes Street. Therefore, the hotel is the perfect place for guests seeking the best Scottish ambiance.

A staple for the luminaries, the hotel came into life in 1895. It was molded by renowned architects of their time. The hotel's architecture combined a hybrid of ancient Victorian architecture and splendor, paying homage to the much-acclaimed Renaissance era. The North British Railway Company then owned the hotel. Also, its clock was set 3 minutes fast so that people didn't miss out on catching their train.

The only day the clock's time was accurate was the 31st of December (Hogmanay), when the city prepared for the New Year's festivities. However, J K Rowling added to the hotel's heritage more recently. She did so by leaving a note on a marble bust of Hermes in her room. The letter said, "JK Rowling finished writing Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows in this room (552) on the 11th of January 2007".

Location

A stay at the Balmoral Hotel is nothing short of a memorable event with stunning views surrounding the vicinity. The escapade is set in stone just around the corner by the Waverley station. Moreover, the hotel is five minutes away on foot from the National Gallery and Old Town. This brings guests the perfect setting to bunk lavishly in the night. They also have the opportunity to explore the historic city during the day.

Buses, trams, and rail links are accessible at the location with ease. Additionally, the hotel is close to the railway. This may sound like turbulence and noise. However, all that is put to rest once the kilted doormen at the hotel are passed. Furthermore, the atmosphere is tranquil on the inside.

Rooms and Suites

The state-of-the-art hotel showcases 187 rooms and suites. The blend between vintage and contemporary furnishings glistens in subtle hues. Olga Polizzi designs all Rooms, and this conveys utter tranquility and warmth.

Moreover, the variety of the ambiance is versatile. Therefore, guests have plenty of options to select from. The classics unleash a view of the courtyard. And if a guest feels the need for a room upgrade, the Executives or Deluxe rooms will let them lounge in luxury. These rooms overlook the Princess Street Gardens to the Edinburgh castle.

The classic and ultra-modern is quite the mood inside the suites with a particular twist of florals. Besides, earthy hues of tan breathe relaxation and warmth. Additionally, the ambiance is minimalist yet extravagant. It also features beautiful bathrooms that speak volumes when it comes to space.

Furthermore, the rooms come with a mini-bar and a safe. There is also a coffee corner with Scottish tea as an option. Peace and tranquility are complimentary.

Culinary Experience

This Michelin-starred number one restaurant is a testing ground for the renowned Mathew Sherry. He dishes exotic blends of tomatoes, balsamic vinegar, and halibut with sea leek and caviar. This no doubt makes the dining experience a taste of the divine.

The dining room is a sensual space to retreat. It has stunning hues of red adorning the interiors and curving banquettes, adding a bit of pizzazz. Moreover, it sets itself apart from the rest in line. The dining room is a space to dine in class with generously spacious tables and outclass service.

Additionally, Alain Roux's Brasserie Prince and whiskey bar are classics to indulge in. The restaurant serves oysters and steak Frites paired against scallops and salmon. Truly a taste of refined Scottish cuisine. Besides, celebrate the mornings in a brightly lit dining area. Enjoy delicious fish cakes, poached eggs, herb crème frâiche, and more.

Furthermore, the afternoon hours are a significant retreat for guests. Succumb to the divine tunes playing on a harp at the Palm Court. The not-so-sober lot gets plenty of options to select from at the Scotch Whisky Bar. This is in case tea and coffee don't do it for them.
