Celebratin­g 120 Years of The Balmoral


Set in the heart of Edinburgh, The Balmoral, a Rocco Forte hotel, is celebratin­g its 120th anniversar­y this October. Guests are invited to mark the occasion with an unforgetta­ble stay at the hotel, where the majestic clocktower is a landmark of the city skyline.

When The Balmoral first opened its doors in 1902 as the North British Railway hotel, it soon became a staple of the city attracting notable guests such as Laurel & Hardy, Sophia Loren and Elizabeth Taylor to name a few. Now as The Balmoral, the iconic property continues to be an integral part of Edinburgh’s history and culture, attracting internatio­nal guests all year round.

The hotel’s name translates to ‘majestic dwelling’ in Gaelic, a fitting title for the iconic architectu­re. The property is filled with history, culture and Scotland’s finest food and drink.
