This is an historic hotel in an historic location - newly refurbished and brought up to the standard you would expect in a Waldorf Astoria hotel. This means there are luxurious touches and flourished in the decor and the furnishing - all set within this old, listed building.
We parked ourselves in the car park around the back of the hotel. Reception was very efficient and welcoming. We were upgraded to a suite (Room 160) and were impressed with the spacious bedroom and separate sitting room. The only disappointment was the shower over the bath rather than a separate shower which you often get in suites at this level of hotel - but that is just a personal preference.
Dinner at the Brasserie was very good - with particularly impressive and efficient service from the delightful waiter - and delicious authentic Brasserie good which we enjoyed.
- 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
