Meetings & events

Whether you want to host a lavish gala dinner or an intimate business gathering, a private cocktail party or a product launch, the 10 sophisticated and well-equipped events spaces in Edinburgh—which can accommodate parties of 15 to 400 guests—offer style, comfort and Rocco Forte Hotels’ impeccable, world-class service.

Found at No. 1 Princes Street, the most prestigious address in the Scottish capital, The Balmoral enjoys exceptional access to Edinburgh’s main transport hubs, including Waverley Station (located adjacent to the hotel) and the international airport.

For its stunning city centre location, The Balmoral retains a surprising sense of peace and refined sophistication. Each of the light-flooded meeting and events spaces retain a wealth of grand, original features, with almost all showcasing the city’s most privileged views, looking out towards Edinburgh Castle and the Old Town.

Your event will also benefit from the services of the dedicated events team, while your guests will have the opportunity to dine at our Michelin-starred restaurant, Number One, in the chic surrounds of Brasserie Prince, or enjoy late-night whisky tastings at SCOTCH, our stylish whisky bar with over 500 bottles to choose from.
