Our review

The  glamorously re-imagined  Caledonian Hotel, a long time favourite of James Bond (aka Sir Sean Connery) and a host of other celebrities, is now part of the world class, 5 star Hilton Waldorf-Astoria collection.  Located at the West End of Princes Street, with prime views of Edinburgh Castle and Princes Street Gardens,  it is within a walking distance of shops, theatres, a concert hall, Edinburgh's Financial District, and the historic Old Town .

First opened as an Edwardian Railway hotel in 1903, that sense of history and heritage is celebrated in its grand furnishings and art décor, matched by contemporary facilities and technology for today’s world traveller.  The theme, as it was in 1903, is all about  gracious living, fine hospitality and relaxation.  'Luxury Edinburgh' was its original telegram address.

The bedrooms and lavish suites are exclusively designed for homely comfort and style:  Sofas and magazines supplied, Nespresso coffee,  Ferragamo bath products, robes, slippers, a weather forecast & Good Night bookmark. 

There are two restaurants created by Michelin starred chefs, Chris and Jeff Galvin.  There guests are invited to experience a gourmand tasting menu with paired wines in the Belle Epoque surroundings of The Pompadour, or sample the classic French cuisine in the Brasserie de Luxe.   The Peacock Alley Lounge Bar is a haven of comfort providing coffee, traditional afternoon tea, light meals, cocktails and champagne at any time of the day. 

You are also invited to experience a pampering session at the only Guerlain Spa in the U.K,  and there is complimentary access to the  swimming pool, sauna and fitness centre.  Banqueting, conferences, weddings and private and corporate events are a major part of the hotel’s fine hospitality.

The Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh – The Caledonian is a model of timeless , romantic elegance.  With glitzy, grand Edwardian splendour with a touch of contemporary pizzazz,  this Grande Dame of a hotel proudly celebrated her 112th birthday in December 2015.
