Known as The Cally, this is a comfortable and large hotel. The bigger bedrooms would b a good choice and eating in the brasserie rather than the restaurant. The staff are proud of the hotel which is a good sign

I arrived at The Waldorf early in the day and was immediately checked in. My room had a view of the castle as requested. The rooms here could use an upgrading, but my room was spacious enough for a few days, and the bathroom was wonderfully finished and spacious. (love the towel heaters!) Aside from one snooty young bartender, (who... More

A truly luxury hotel. Staff all very attentive. Grand reception area and hotel imaginatively decorated for Christmas. Rooms were fab, beds comfy and plenty of space. Bathroom excellent. Spa also wonderful. The breakfast was brilliant, everything you could wish for. We can't wait to return!!!

We arrived at night after arriving from London at Waverly Station. After a quick check-in, we went up the lift to find out that some of the rooms weren't actually numbered in order. We later arrived puzzled in a small room in between the corridors to find our room door. Right outside the room is a very noisy closet thing.... More

Spent two night at The Caledonian on a recent visit to Edinburgh and loved this hotel. The location was perfect for exploring the city. The staff was friendly and helpful. Bar felt refined but was characteristic of the city's history. The breakfast was great and covered all the options you could want. Spa was OK, not the most luxurious and... More

I stayed in the hotel for 6 days in November, while visiting Edinbourg for a conference. As a part of the package I have got a standard room, which happen to be on the attic (5 floor), but has enough space for one person. Among pluses - large wardrobe, iron, tea and coffee makers, space in mini bar for your... More

Newly refurbished guest rooms and good location to all historical sites. Breakfast with fairly good selection of cold and hot dishes. Waiters are attentive. Check in very efficiently and always express check out service from Hilton properties.

This hotel is fantastic - friendly staff and lovely rooms. Gold HHonours recognised for all my rooms and this includes complimentary drinks and breakfast which is a nice touch. Ask for a room with a castle view if possible - but the other rooms are still well appointed. Nice selection for breakfast and Peacock Alley is a great place to... More

Beautiful hotel with character and charm, staff top notch and eager to help. High tea is to die for along with the breakfast. Unusual room where we were unable to watch TV in bed, but that didn't spoil our stay. Can't wait to visit again hopefully without the rain next time.
