About this property

For over a century, this luxuriously dog-friendly hotel has found a home at Edinburgh’s most prestigious address, No. 1 Princes Street. A landmark Rocco Forte hotel set in the heart of Scotland’s capital city, The Balmoral combines stunning views and warm hospitality with world-class facilities to create the perfect urban retreat. Standing proud since 1902, the historic building’s majestic clock tower still dominates the Edinburgh skyline. Its clock is set precisely three minutes fast, to ensure residents never miss their train. In fact, the only day the clock is set correctly is Hogmanay for the city’s New Year celebrations. The Balmoral is the perfect home-from-home to discover Edinburgh and Scotland’s finest attractions. Whatever the season, the hotel’s dedicated Concierge team can open doors to some of the most unique experiences in Scotland. From tickets to the world-famous Edinburgh Festival events, access to the city’s royal establishments - Holyrood Palace and the Royal Yacht Britannia – to the hotel’s Tartan Butler Clan Tour, you’ll find the best of Scotland at your fingertips. The Balmoral was named as City Hotel of the Year 2018 by the world’s leading gastronomic tourism title - Food and Travel magazine and their Michelin-star restaurant, Number One, was named as one of the Top 10 Best Fine Dining Restaurants in the UK for 2018.

Dine with Your Dog

The Balmoral will provide you with a true gastro experience. Indulge in the Michelin-starred restaurant, Number One, which offers modern Scottish dining with the finest service. Together with his team, Head Chef Mark Donald has created an innovative new menu inspired by Scotland and flavoured by their international travels. Or for a more relaxed atmosphere, choose the Brasserie Prince by Alain Roux matching the very best of Scottish produce with classic French cooking. At Bar Prince the ambience is relaxed yet convivial. You can enjoy a pre-dinner aperitif, sit in the cosy library by the fire for an after-dinner drink or sample cocktails at the long, marble bar counter for a fun night out. While furry guests are asked to remain in their rooms whilst humans visit the hotel's restaurants and bars, pet-sitters can be arranged or the hotel can recommend local dog-friendly restaurants.

Bow wow factor

Resident dog Lucy has a welcome pack ready for each furry traveller including a bed, water bowl, welcome treats, a list of pet-friendly restaurants, bars and parks, contact details of local dog walkers.

Bedrooms & Suites

Elegant and stylish, The Balmoral’s 167 rooms and 20 suites offer an invitation to experience and enjoy Scottish heritage.

Scone and Crombie

The iconic Scone & Crombie Suite is named after the stunning Scottish palace of Scone in Perthshire and the historic Crombie Castle in Aberdeenshire. From the custom-made tapestry Devonshire Swans wallpaper in the entrance hall—ideal for discrete, private check-ins or private dinners—to the rich fabrics and opulent furnishings used throughout the grand and generous space, our presidential suite is decorated with a nod to the city’s royal connections. Elegantly complementing the design, the colour scheme is serene with shades of delicate blue and grey, evoking Scottish skies and lochs, and a dash of soft yellow, like wild gorse, in the bedroom. Botanical, natural accents are woven throughout, while the floor-to-ceiling windows that flood the space with light reveal the skyline of the city’s Old Town as a compelling contrast. For added decadence, the living room has a working fireplace and the spacious Italian marble and mosaic bathroom features a freestanding bathtub, a separate shower and luxurious Asprey toiletries. Ideal for lavish longer stays and larger groups, the Scone & Crombie can be transformed into either a two or three bedroom suite.

Rowling signed when she finished writing Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows in this very suite, to the antique furnishings, this light-flooded space is adorned with quirky items. Large windows reveal stunning views of Carlton Hill, while turreted alcoves add charm. The decor throughout evocatively conjures the Scottish countryside through stylish sylvan accents and decorative touches that call to mind the natural world. Moving through the enchanting suite into the peaceful bedroom, the sumptuous king-sized bed promises a restful night’s sleep, and the adjoining Italian marble bathroom, which features a bathtub and separate shower, is stocked with luxurious Asprey toiletries.
