The Balmoral, a Rocco Forte hotel in Edinburgh, has revealed a new look for one of its signature suites, The Glamis.
The location was designed by Olga Polizzi, Rocco Forte Hotels’ director of building and design, and sister to Rocco Forte.
Named after one of the country’s most beautiful and historical royal abodes, Glamis Castle, childhood home of HM Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother, the newly launched Glamis Suite is full of period charm and regal references.
Stretching over 100 square metres, with a prime position overlooking the entrance to the hotel on Princes Street, the new suite can be booked with one, two or three bedrooms, making it perfect for couples, families and VIPs.
A new entrance to the Glamis Suite offers discrete, private check-ins.
Taking centre stage in the Master Bedroom is a full-height half-tester bed with a tapestried canopy adding to the romance of a by-gone era.
Lewis & Wood Bosky wallpaper by artist Alexander Hamilton adds a fairy-tale quality to the scene whilst two stone lions referencing the Royal Banner of the Royal Arms of Scotland stand guard.
A spacious Arabascato marble-clad bathroom, with its oversized freestanding bath sitting underneath a lustrous vintage Czechoslovakian glass chandelier, completes the suite.
Providing a unique suite experience is at the heart of Rocco Forte Hotels’ ongoing dedication to its guests.
As part of this, Glamis Suite guests will be offered exclusive turndowns from luxury cashmere brand Johnstons of Elgin and fragrance house, Kingdom Scotland, both aimed at bringing the essence of Scotland to the suite.
