Nice hotel, average sized rooms, interior was better than average, very close to city centre, limited parking available, I was lucky to get this lower price, Room was warm and clean. I didn't hear any noise from the street at night! I didn't have breakfast. I would stay here again due to the friendly staff and great location!

We arrived 3 hours before check in hoping to leave our bags so we could explore the city, however the helpful receptionist found us an available room. The room was a bit small and decor was dated but it was warm and clean. We were located at the back of the hotel so not a great view but we didn't... More

This hotel is in a great location, it was really quite classy with comfortable, clean and stylish rooms of a good size, the parking available was spot on and the staff were fantastic. The food was great as well and it all made for a brilliant Hogmanay. Thoroughly recommend it, thanks to all there for making our stay so enjoyable.

This is an older hotel just off Union Street and therefore ideally placed for the train and bus stations, bus services and the City Centre. Originally the Caledonian Hotel it has a great style and presence, although the age of the building does produce the occasional uneven floor etc as can be expected. It is, however, a very comfortable hotel... More

We had two night sat the Thistle Caledonian while attending the company Christmas party which was held elsewhere. We decided to have somewhere central for easy access to the delights of Union Street for which this fits the bill perfectly. The car park can be a little tricky to find located as it is on a back street off Union... More
