From $96

In the heart of the city centre (which is literally on the doorstep) the Ballantrae Hotel offers 3 star hotel accommodations in Edinburgh that reflects the history and elegance of the city surrounding it. We are a two minute walk to the trendy George Street shops where celebrity spotting is a probability, and moments too from the bustling Princes Street and all its grandeur.

The hotel is a grade A listed building from the Georgian period, and it boasts very high ceilings and spacious rooms, with many period details. This is a building with character and history, for the discerning guest who is bored with modern "mass-produced" hotel rooms. In the elegance of this period setting, you will discover modern comfort and convenience in all fittings and facilities. Why not venture beyond the big chain hotels, and discover the advantages of a small independent hotel in Edinburgh!

Our friendly and experienced team will help direct you to all the best sites, shops and restaurants. We would also love to welcome you to the Signature Restaurant at our sister hotel The Albany. It is just two minutes down the road and serves delicious contemporary cuisine, with two terraces that are great for watching Edinburgh come to life below you while you dine.

During your stay with us, you'll find that our staff is undoubtedly our best feature and will do everything possible to help make your experience in the hotel and in Edinburgh nothing short of superb. And if you would like extra space, please ask, as some of our rooms are exceptionally large and we'll be happy to provide the facilities best suited to you.

It won't cost you a fortune to enjoy the views from The Ballantrae either. Rooms are available from £49 and it is impossible to find better Edinburgh hotel offers!

So for weekend breaks in Edinburgh – or perhaps for a longer holiday in Edinburgh – book a room at the The Ballantrae and fall in love with Scotland's capital from the inside out.

Minutes from the train and bus stations, and a short stroll to theatres, restaurants, shopping centres and Princes Street, the hotel is an ideal base for anyone visiting Edinburgh on business or leisure. Children are welcome, and a large family room is available.

At the rear is a private car park, which is much appreciated by our guests.
