Harry Potter fans have no dearth of opportunities to relive the series, long after the lat book was released. A trip to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter or going around filming locations across England are some of the popular options for fans.

But now, there is another alternative for Harry Potter fans who want to relive the series. And no, we are not talking about another filming location. It is the Balmoral Hotel in Edinburgh, Scotland.

 

This luxury hotel is where JK Rowling stayed when she wrote the final book in the series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. In fact, you can even stay in the same suite in which Rowling stayed when she was finishing the novel. It comes complete with the same desk Rowling sat at when writing.

The suite was previously known as the ‘Tweed Suite’ but this luxurious room was renamed to the 'JK Rowling Suite'. It has plenty of magical touches including an owl door knocker. The suite’s hallway also has a marble bust of Hermes that the author signed after writing the final book.

 

It was no surprise that Rowling chose this hotel as it offers plush interiors, comfortable furnishings and gorgeous view of the Scottish countryside.

The suite itself has a spacious bedroom, a marble bathroom with a gigantic bathtub, and a separate living room with plush furnishings. The hotel also provides extra perks like complimentary tea and coffee making facilities, an in-room bar and a packing/unpacking service to maximise relaxation time.
