My wife and I visited this marvellous hotel at the west end of Princess Street whilst on a Tattoo weekend on the Orient Express.
We thought the train journey was fantastic however when we arrived at the Waldorf Caledonian our weekend got better.
The hotel was beautiful and spotlessly clean. The food could not have been better. The management should be proud of their staff selection. From cleaners to restaurant staff. From reception to bell captains. All deserve our highest praise. They were pleasant, helpful and professional.
I spend many nights in hotels around the world and often feel embarrassed by UK hotels for foreign visitors. I will certainly be recommending the Caledonia to my foreign friends.
- 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
