We stayed at The Caledonian, Waldolf Astoria Hotel for a few days break. We paid extra for a room with a castle view and the view was excellent. The room overall was pleasant however the bathroom was a bit on the small size. Cleanliness etc was good Unfortunately, we had to wait around 20 minutes to be seated for breakfast on the Monday morning of our stay and when seated, we had a further wait to be served our coffee etc. The Tuesday and Wednesday morning breakfast was much better and we would make special mention of the excellent service from the Scottish chef at breakfast. The Pool, sauna etc was good, however very small and when a family is in at the same time it can be overcrowded!. Perhaps a couples only hour would be good. We ate at the Brassiere on.the Sunday evening ,sadly did not find this anything special and found better restaurants nearby!! Overall, good location but nothing exceptional.

- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Walforf Astoria Edinburgh - The Caledonian, or the "Caley" as it has become affectionately known among Edinburgh folk, was and still is the epitome of style and excellence. The large, rose-coloured Permian sandstone facade, quarried in Dumfries, dominates the skyline of the city's west end. The hotel has not only remained a focal point for more than one hundred years, but a symbol of the very best of Scottish hospitality. The Caley's pivotal position at the very heart of Edinburgh has always been its greatest asset. Created out of the 19th century railway boom, the five star hotel is looking to the future with confidence and pride in its ability to keep pace with the times. The hotel's reputation is as justified now as it was when the hotel first opened its doors in 1903. ... more less
