Recently visited there for afternoon tea in the company of my wife, her mother who was celebrating her eightieth birthday and an elderly aunt. On arrival the doorman on duty was very kind, helpful and attentive to my elderly guests and assisted with parking my car near to the doorway before personally escorting my relatives inside..
The afternoon tea was plentiful and delicious and the service by all staff was of the highest standard. None could have been more helpful or friendly. our table had birthday decorations on same and staff produced a small cake with a candle which delighted my mother in law.
The surroundings and indeed the whole experience was absolutely first class and in my opinion the staff concerned are the best I have experienced in any hotel visit I have made.
I would recommend the afternoon tea at this hotel to anyone and found this excellent value
I did not stay at the premises but will be doing so in the near future after this visit
- 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
