If you book via a special deal expect to be treated like a third class guest. You'll get a room at the back of the hotel. Open the windows and smell the delights offered by the kitchen extractor fan. Start to get used to the banging of delivery vans and skip collection. The room will consist of a small double bed and furniture covered in a film of dust. Breakfast at £20pp includes mashed haggis and a confusing list of alternatives all designed to 'trade you up' to a higher price. Beware of the lounge service and the 'up front' expectation of a cash tip. This hotel has a big name and an even bigger price which is a front for rock bottom value for money.
- 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
