This is a very beautiful and elegant hotel. The staff cannot do enough to help you, the rooms are tastefully furnished and the bed very comfortable. Breakfast was as good as I have had in any hotel. I just wish we had booked for more than 1 night

One of the nicest hotels I have visited in any city. Contained in the hotel are a couple of lovely restaurants and a nice cocktail bar in the foyer. The hotel is old and well maintained. Received a complimentary upgrade which was very kind of the staff. The room was huge and had everything you could need. The location is... More

We stayed here for a Valentine's treat. The room was clean, cosy and very nicely decorated. A great location with stunning views of the Castle. The harpist in the lounge area was a great touch for people to enjoy their afternoon tea and drinks with.

My husband and I spent few days at Hotel Waldorf Astoria and we enjoyed very much. The location is perfect; the hotel is wonderful and the staff is gentle. The room was spacious and cozy. The decor is classic and fancy. The breakfast is a real delicious: the food and the ambience are perfect.

Stayed here for first trip to Edinburgh - 3 nights. The room was spotless, very large (a deluxe room #464, non castle view) and huge bathroom with shower and separate bath. If you really need to book a room with a castle view I guess do it, but you get plenty of opportunities to see it throughout the hotel and... More

Hotel itself is immaculate very contemporary but flat didn't like the staff felt they were quite cold and unfriendly... More

We stayed in a Premium Double Double Room with my partner and our 8 year old....a truly luxury experience, the room was enormous and stylish, and we all had a grand time. We made great use of the pool, it was great to be able to have family drinks in Peacock Alley before and after we went out for a... More

Spent 2 of our 5 nights in Scotland at the Caledonian. Loved the location, and the building itself is fantastic. We were well looked after from the moment we first checked in. We opted to dine out while we were in Edinburgh, so cannot offer much feedback with regards to the food. Overall, an enjoyable experience and would recommend.
