Balmoral Hotel wins double awards success

Edinburgh’s Balmoral Hotel has scored a double at the Catering Scotland (CIS) Awards when it was voted best group hotel and best restaurant.

Judges said the iconic hotel at No. 1 Princes Street, part of the Rocco Forte group, had “continued its delivery of world-class Scottish hospitality”.

They went on: “Several major new brand level projects were introduced during the year, including those focused on improving the family experience, greater use of local organic and nutritious food, and enhancement of its line of spa products.”
