We have recently enjoyed an overnight stay at a fantastic price. Our room was very comfortable with fabulous views of the bay. Breakfast was very good and plentiful. We're looking forward to another visit to this beautiful area in the near future and will obviously choose the Caledonian.

We originally arranged a 2 day conference for up to 60 people but in the end, having had to change dates several times due to key participants' conflicting schedules, we ended up a smaller party of some 24 people. The hotel - from management to front of house team - were most accommodating and welcoming. As event facilitator I felt... More

We visited the Caledonian for a 2 night stay and we had a great time! The room was gorgeous with a beautiful view over the harbour, the breakfast was lovely, and the staff were really helpful and friendly. The only complaint was that the shower was rubbish, but the bath made up for it. Would love to come back again,... More

Got a great bed and breakfast price phoning direct. We were a little unsure but very pleased. As we had a dog with us we were expecting the worst room in the hotel, however, we got a lovely large room overlooking the bay. I love these big old hotels, with the wide stairs and big old doors. With this type... More

My partner and I decided to have lunch her before we caught the Ferry out to the islands, basically because of the location. However the meal was great! The service was very friendly and fast, and the cafe area has a great view over the harbour. Great value for money in terms of portion size and flavour. It's not adventurous... More

We stayed 2 nights and found the hotel to be perfectly nice. Obviously they are still working on it, and we may have been fortunate, but our room was very clean and comfortable and was so quiet that you could hardly believe anybody else was staying in the hotel. Breakfast was fine, and although we didn't eat in the restaurant... More
