Scotland: Rocco Forte Hotel Edinburgh reveals rejuvenated events spaces

The Balmoral, a Rocco Forte Hotel in Edinburgh, has relaunched after undergoing extensive refurbishment.

Olga Polizzi, Rocco Forte Hotels' Director of Building & Design, and sister to Sir Rocco Forte, led the modernisation project. The hotel's three main function rooms - Sir Walter Scott, Princes and Holyrood Suites - underwent a redesign to provide a modernised yet refined experience for event-attendees.

Polizzi's aim was to enhance the large proportions of the rooms, highlighting their neo-Renaissance architectural design such as the original cornicing and high ceilings. Each has a botanical feel.

Various suites also underwent renovation. The Sir Walter Scott Suite, which overlooks the Sir Walter Scott monument, now features intricate gilding that complements the various shades of green in the patterned carpet. The Princes Suite has a gold, yellow and silver theme and a period fireplace providing a focal point for the room.
