Weekend getaway and couldn’t have chose a better place to stay the hotel is very beautiful and classic,the decor is superb and so is the architecture. Greeted by friendly staff in fact all the staff throughout our stay have been amazing not missing any attention to detail,the food is simply out of this world and would recommend you try the Grazing by Mark Greenway restaurant! The beef Wellington was divine,breakfast is ample and a great choice is offered I have absolutely no reservations in recommending this establishment. Well done Waldorf Astoria you made us very happy.

We came here for drinks before having a meal in the Grazing restaurant. Although this was our first time to the hotel we were welcomed by name upon arrival and were well looked after in the peacock alley bar which is a lovely informal area. We then had our meal and the service was brilliant the staff are very chatty and friendly and they took the time to get to know us for the time we were there. Its a shame we were not staying at this hotel but with the service, attentiveness and warm welcome we received we'd love to stay. Thankyou to the team for making our anniversary meal extra special.

Me and my friends recently stayed, our first girl get together in a long time, and it was such a blissful getaway to Edinburgh. We enjoyed the amazing new outdoor patio with the tastiest cocktails and food platters. The staff were lovely and so accommodating. Our bedroom was gorgeous, so spacious with the most amazing views of Edinburgh castle and the comfiest big beds. Even the bathroom amenities were lush- almost didn't want to leave the room :) The pool also was a lovely way to relax during our stay. I can't wait to go back!

Afternoon tea - Edinburgh Zoo themed. I’m a bit of a cake buff and I must say that the selection was delightful - all made by the pastry chefs. Loads to eat and endless tea and coffee. Iona was our hostess and she was a star! Loads of atmosphere in Peacock Alley.
