I recently went back to the 'Caley' for a weekend, having not stayed there for about five years. Previously I was a regular, staying in Edinburgh on business most weeks.
The refurbishment of the public rooms has given the hotel a real wow factor. Peacock Alley, in what was the restaurant and part of the outside space is inspired - a lovely place for afternoon tea or a drink. The bedrooms are nicely done, but what makes it very special are the staff. Very helpful and friendly and the guys on the Concierge desk are the real stars. Not only did they remember me aft all this time, but they are still highly knowledgable about the city - great restaurant recommendations and incredibly helpful. Great work guys.
- 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
