Went for a two day break after Christmas. lovely young man on the desk remembered us and was so friendly and attentive. Room was upgraded and when we got in there were petit-fours, wines, chocolates and waters aswell as fresh coffee facilities and magazines. After a good few hours exploring we went back to the hotel for cocktails and then... More

We stayed at the Caledonian right after the holidays when the town and hotel were quiet. The building is ideally located with easy access to the main shopping and eating district of Edinburgh, with easy access to the old town's castle and attractions. The building is just beautiful and historic. The rooms are clean and well-appointed, though you may have... More

I didn't stay here (alas!) but did spend a delightful time in the expansive and comfie atrium lobby where we shared a nice bottle of wine, an antipasto, and a cheese plate. A perfect way to end an evenng following a theater performance.

Beautiful hotel in a great location. We walked to check-in from the train station. Nice breakfast every morning, huge rooms and good, updated bathrooms. So nice to have the park right across the street as well.

We stayed here and had a spa day and afternoon tea. Both were fantastic. The hotel is stunning and the bedrooms and facilities are lovely. I would highly recommend the cocktails in the hotel bar. Great location shopping.

Visited this hotel for 2 nights as part of birthday celebrations during January 2015. Stayed in room 312 which had lovely view of the castle. Room was very clean and beautifully decorated, bed was so so comfortable. Staff were very accommodating and professional. We used the pool and amenities and found it lovely, very peaceful and again immaculate. Breakfast was... More

Recently held our 'late' Christmas Party here and whilst I did not personally arrange the event the hotel more than catered for our needs, (65 people) and I guess was typical of the 'Waldorf' name. Rooms were comfortable and had all the mod cons you'd expect. Service was exceptional (both reception, bar and food) although drinks and food were expensive.... More

This was a last minute booking and my Christmas present from my other half. We arrived 2 hours early and were able to check in as our room was ready. We were offered an upgrade to a slightly bigger room with castle view which we took. It wasn't really worth the extra £40, room was quite small and although we... More
