The Balmoral Hotel
Time Out says
More than a hotel – one of the city's more celebrated inhabitants in its own right
A luxury, Edwardian railway hotel with a clock tower that has been an Edinburgh icon for over a century, Edinburgh without the Balmoral is unthinkable. J K Rowling even wrapped up the Harry Potter series here in 2007; the room where it happened was later named in her honour. The rooms and suites are gorgeous, the facilities are excellent and there is a Michelin-star restaurant on site.
