The Balmoral in Edinburgh, Scotland is a legendary hotel and landmark clock tower, the symbol of its city. Opened in 1902, the world-renowned Balmoral Hotel is considered one of Edinburgh’s best hotels and has attracted famous guests for over a century, including Laurel and Hardy, Sophia Loren, Elizabeth Taylor and Paul and Linda McCartney.
The Balmoral’s 167 rooms and 20 suites offer an invitation to experience and enjoy Scottish heritage. The design, by Olga Polizzi, embodies the Scottish landscape, with a colour palette of blues and greys, bringing the country’s woodlands, heather-covered hills and lochs within the hotel’s walls.
Stay in the elegant J.K. Rowling Suite blending contemporary design accents with unique features to magical effect. The marble bust of Hermes, in the suite’s lounge, was signed by J.K. Rowling when she finished writing Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows in this very suite. Large windows reveal stunning views of Calton Hill, while turreted alcoves add charm.
