A breath taking hotel. We had a King Deluxe room. Beautiful room with a terrible view. Very expensive but worth the additional cost for special occasions. Located on Princess Street this hotel is perfectly located.

Booked for the Caledonian to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Having stayed at the Caledonian prior to the Waldorf rebranding, and once after, I have to say very little has changed nor improved, and there is no real WOW factor as you would expect with a 5 star Hotel. However, I do not want to put people off but, the hotel... More

First time in Scotland, wanted to stay at nice place. The Caledonian is a great location, but hotel is huge and a little worn out. Room was small, price was high, we had just stayed at The Savoy in London so we were spoiled. The lobby is big, the staff is nice. The bar next door is big. Easy walk... More

Room was nice and warm with well fitting, thick curtains. Beds and pillows were very comfortable. Despite being on a main road noise was not disruptive. Room had good view... More

We stayed here 12th and 13th December all the staff were very friendly and helpful. We had drinks in the bar in both nights and the staff really knew their stuff, one even made us our own cocktails after us telling them what ingredients we liked in a drink. Hotel was beautifully decorated for Christmas and we had a great... More

Beautiful and grand hotel, attentive staff and excellent food, will definitely return. Room was good size and furnished very nicely, clean and had dress robes and coffee making facilities. Centrally located, ideal for shopping and just a short tram ride away from the train station.

The TV is clearly provided by internet connection and was continually buffering, which made watching not a pleasant experience. Generally staff was very helpful in all areas, although maybe short...
