This was our second visit to The Caledonian. It's now been taken over by the Waldorf Astoria so had changed quite dramatically in decor. I cannot fault this place. I took my 10 year old son for two nights to visit friends in Edinburgh. Nothing was too much trouble. We had a deluxe twin room - it was more like a deluxe double room as each bed was nearly a double! We had a fantastic view of the castle. The breakfast was delicious and they even managed to find some chocolate sauce for my son's pancakes. I shall be back next year and each year after. I have stayed several times at the Balmoral, which yes, is a stunning hotel, but I have to say, for the price we paid for the Caledonian it was certainly value for money and still with all the lovely trappings. What also impressed me... they phoned me the week before we were due to arrive, to ask if we had any special requests.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Waldorf 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
