The Balmoral, one of Edinburgh’s most iconic properties, has revealed a lavish new look for its finest hotel suite.

Led by Olga Polizzi, Rocco Forte Hotels’ Director of Building & Design, and sister to Sir Rocco Forte, the Scone & Crombie is set to become one of the largest suites in Scotland thanks to an extensive refurbishment.

Named after the iconic Scone Palace in Perthshire, the signature suite has been designed as the ultimate city base. The flexible accommodation which stretches over 220 square meters can be booked as a two or three bedroom suite.

The addition of a sizeable entrance hall, provides the perfect location for discrete private check-ins and opens onto a multipurpose meetings and dining space. In the sitting room with its working fireplace, a serene colour palette provides a restful foil for the scheme in which rich fabrics meet opulent furnishings.

A feeling of spaciousness abounds, with floor-to-ceiling windows framing views of Edinburgh’s Old Town. The master bedroom, meanwhile, has also be completely redesigned – combining modernity and tradition with the juxtaposition of antique and heritage pieces with pops of colour and bold prints.

The renovated rooms and suites are integral to Rocco Forte Hotels’ ongoing dedication to its suite offering. Rocco Forte Hotels has unveiled The Rocco Forte Suite Experience and as part of this, The Balmoral has created an exclusive cashmere turndown service for the Scone & Crombie with luxury Scottish cashmere brand Hawico.

In addition to this, two new experiences – Scone & Crombie Land and Scone & Crombie Sea have also been created for guests of the suite in partnership with Scotland’s outdoor adventure specialists, Ossian.

Offering unrivalled access to the finest sporting locations and private properties,Scone & Crombie Land will see Ossian founder, Ted Innes Ker, lead a tour of his family home in The Scottish Borders – Floors Castle and host a dinner in the Duke’s Fishing Hut located right on the banks of the River Tweed. 

Scone & Crombie Sea, meanwhile, offers guests the opportunity to escape city aboard a luxury boat and explore the historic islands and coastline of the Firth of Forth. Guests will indulge in a BBQ lunch in a rustic log cabin overlooking a vast sandy beach and across to the Bass Rock and May Island.
