Insight Guides
Edinburgh's classic five-star hotel located at the east end of Princes Street in a large and imposing building. Excellent service, sublime restaurants and a luxurious atmosphere.
Almost directly above Waverley railway station, The Balmoral's soaring clock tower is a city landmark, famously set a few minutes fast for the benefit of those on the way to the train.
