"Nothing better than bellmen in plaid pants!"
Coming from our place in Italy, as expats it was wonderful to be back in the world of the English language! The Caledonian was lovely with very friendly staff and wonderful views of the castle. We enjoyed the restaurants as well. For a birthday weekend, it was a lovely time, even though it was very cold! Great location too. Only one problem: our room had one very squeaky bed! Otherwise, we will be back!
Just checked out of the Waldorf. Me and my boyfriend decided instead of buying xmas pressies this year we would go to Edinburgh to see the christmas market and stay in a dearer hotel than we would normally stay. Paid £150 for one night which we were happy with as looks like a lovely hotel. We were greeted by a really friendly doorman who also parked our car for us. When we went up to see our room the cleaners were outside and had to move all there stuff to let us in. That was fine until we realised this morning that we were next to the cleaning room. Washing machines were on early and staff coming and going closing doors etc. We ended up just having to get up. We booked the hotel to use the spa facilities as well only to find when we got in the lift to go down there was a sign saying the jacuzzi was broken which was disappointing. When we got to the spa member of staff asked us to come and sign in. While my boyfriend was signing in she asked are you staying here' We replied yes and she asked to see our card for the room. My boyfriend lifted it up and she just said "thats fine". Did she not believe us' The shower in the bathroom was nice but the water doesn't heat up very well. Bit disappointed with our stay to be honest and unfortunately will not be back. I must say though the hotel itself is very impressive just a shame we got a rubbish room.
"Early winter break"
Once again this hotel does not disappoint, staff attention excellent, chef accommodated gluten free request without any fuss, bed linen crisp white and feather duvets, sleeping at the back quieter not the view but it's a room to sleep in. Great restaurant and bar, lovely food and great staff
"Spur of the moment break"
Just back from a fantastic spur of the moment stay at the Waldorf Astoria the staff were so friendly and helpful especially Malcolm at concierge he is a credit to the hotel. Fantastic room with stunning veiw of the castle, the room was lovely and the bed extremly comfy both my partner and I had a great nights sleep. I would definitely stay here again on my next visit to Edinburgh.
"Great location for our honeymoon!"
Our stay was fantastic and we loved the location for our honeymoon!! The staff was great and service was wonderful! The room was very clean but the bed was VERY uncomfortable and the sheets were horrible.
