I stayed at this hotel with family for a family celebration. Booked 3 Deluxe rooms - and all 3 were upgraded, which was lovely. I had specifically chosen to book the deluxe as these are most recently refurbished.... All rooms were comfortable and finished to a high standard.
During our stay we ate in both main restaurants - the fine dining room was particularly excellent, food was exceptional and the staff were great. Ate in the second restaurant the following evening and were surprised to see that the restaurant was busy and buzzing. A rare thing for many hotel restaurants. Again good and service were very good.
I have to admit I had expected a less polished experience at this hotel - grand old hotels can often disappoint. But Waldorf has done a great job in this refurbishment.
I would suggest others considering this hotel to book and pay for a refurbished room, as I could imagine that the stay experience could differ.
Only slight disappointment - we used the pool, which is fine, but could be made to look a bit better, feels a little basic compared to the other facilities.
Overall - would definitely stay here again.
- 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
