3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The staff were really lovely couldn't do enough for you. The reception and dining area have been refurbished and are good. However the bedroom we stayed in let us down. The carpet was threadbare in parts,dark furniture makes the room even darker.Our room had a terrible smell in it. Very old fashioned in style needs a complete refurbish.

I got a really good deal on their website. Stayed in a gorgeous room with fantastic views. Only reason for not giving 5 was that I found a quaver next to my bed which meant the cleaning wasn't to a very high standard. The lovely room and general feel of the hotel made up for it though.

booked an overnight here for my birthday, it was reasonably priced and in a great location but very dated indeed. For the location and the price, i would stay here again but breakfast wasn't anything to brag about.

We stayed in the hotel for 1 night but wish it was for longer. We were met by David in reception. He was extremely polite and welcoming! He was on the phone when we arrived and let us know that he wouldn't be long. We had a drink in the bar until our room was ready. The barmaid was very... More

When we arrived we where given room 311. When we entered the room there was a strong sewer smell from the... More

Another great deal from the Caledonian Hotel.We were offered bed and breakfast for £20 'we upgraded to sea view for £10. The room was as expected as we had stayed there before.It was spotless and warm the furnishing was traditional which added to the charm.The dining room was well set out and the breakfast was varied, full Scottish or continental,...
