We booked this hotel when it was a Hilton. During our first night (while asleep) it became a Waldorf...pretty funny but nice surprise. Level of service incredible, clean rooms, very helpful staff, located near castle, 10 minutes walking distance. Overall great and very pleased with the hotel. We ate the first night at the Brasserie located in the renovated section of the hotel. Two of us were very satisfied, two of us were disappointed. My friends had a stuffed crab, not very good and difficult to eat. We advised the manager of this situation, but except for excusing themselves, nothing else was done to correct the situation, still charged full price. I think it was there opening night, I would have liked for them to do a bit more, especially in a high-end hotel. Breakfast, included in our room price, was great, great choice of eggs, omelets, fruits etc. For the rest, very happy, comfortable beds and the city, a pure delight.
- 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
