Wife and I stayed for 2 nights in a junior king suite. Reading reports about road noise in castle view rooms, I asked for a room on a higher floor undisturbed by external noise - and I got just that! We had room 454 whith views to the west over roof tops, and utterly silent, but who needs castle views in November? We thought the a la carte breakfasts, cooked to order, were very good. I was going to drop a point on the rating because a misunderstanding on the package we were booked on looked like making us financially out of pocket, but this was resolved with grace and without hesitation and we left with an extremely positive "feelgood" mood from our experience at the Caledonian. Just wish five star hotels realised that charges for in room internet connections (£14 here) are as inappriopriate as charging for TV usage - or hot water!!

- 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
