This Hotel, staff and service was outstanding. The restaurants were some of the finest we have been too. The hotel staff was excellent and extremely friendly. The actual hotel was luxurious and stately. The location was perfect

What a great place to stay! Both the bars, The Caley & Peacock Alley, have plenty of charm, the later maintaining some originality from the old train station. Both restaurants are also excellent, breakfast at the brasserie being a defiant highlight, and a meal at the Pompadour just outstanding.
Service throughout the hotel is just top class, staff are extremely helpful & attentive!
As for the rooms, we stayed in the Sir Walter Scott Suite, and it could not be faulted. Very spacious & comfortable, all the amenities you would expect, with a great view of the castle!
Why stay elsewhere in Edinburgh???

We stayed here in July when we went to see Tom Jones at the Castle. We were upgraded, which was nice, and our friends got a free bottle of Prosecco as their room was not ready. Had afternoon tea, which was excellent and in copious amounts, but a little pricey. To be honest tea for two would have been enough for four

A very good place to stay. The room was amazing spacious and clean. It is located in a very central place for all activities. You can walk to any place of interest. The members of staff were very helpful, polite and caring. We were able to use the swimming pool and the spa which was very nice. The shops were in good location and the Fringe Festival activities which we went to see was within reach.

Had a wonderful stay at the Caledonian Hotel. I stayed for 1 night during the festival and asked for a room on the top floor that would be quieter as the hotel does face out onto two busy streets - Lothian Road and Princes Streets. Was delighted with the room we were given, excellent spa facilities which we actually had to ourselves! Very friendly and attentive staff. Would definitely recommend.
