    We spent the last night of our honeymoon at the Caledonian and it was everything we had wanted. Fabulous!

    Staff were very accomodating and friendly. The rooms were very spacious. The bedding was gorgeous. The good quality of everything from the food at breakfast to the furniture in our room.

    The wait at breakfast with 2 youngish children who are hungry and grumpy.

    Amazing location, right in the middle of everything. Beautiful rooms, comfy bed and well cleaned. Impeccable service from all of the staff.

    We seemed to be hassled a lot on the morning we were due to depart, but otherwise a wonderful stay!

    Excellent restaurant, beautiful rooms, on Princess Street and just below the Castle and the Royal Mile. The Pompadour restaurant has the best staff around and fantastic cuisine.

    We were treated like royalty. The manager who checked us in could not have been nicer. She treated my five year old grandson like he was her most important guest & every time she saw us she made a point of making sure we were being well looked after. The doorman was charming and also could not have done more to be sure we were having a wonderful time. The room was lovely and comfortable, with a spectacular view of the fireworks at the castle each evening. The food and service in the restaurant was very good. The crib provided for our small toddler was perfect with very nice bedding like you would find at home. The extra touches, like scotch, fresh fruit, cakes and whiskey fudge were the crowning touch to an already delightful hotel. We would absolutely return to this gracious and comfortably elegant hotel.

    The service in the restaurant at breakfast was a bit slow.

    Not much although a good location and if the hotel was well managed and guests made to feel welcome it would be a pleasure to stay there. The man in the business centre was very friendly

    The first room offered was terrible - very small and cramped with windows high up the wall, bathroom on another level and very noisy with air conditioning. We changed to a better room after complaining but management didn't really acknowledge the complaint. We could hear air conditioning from another room switching on and off all night. The room wasn't made up despite us putting the sign on at 9.45am and not returning until 4.45pm. Bottled water was supplied on day 1 but not on the second day - when questioned reception said it was only given on day 1 - this makes no sense as guests need water everyday and the room costs the same everyday. The tap fell off the shower and could have broken my wife's toe - response from reception was just to send a repair man

    The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The galvin brasserie was great with tasty well cooked food and again friendly staff. The hotel is well situated for easy access to Central Edinburgh. The rooms were very clean and decorated to a high standard. Scottish tablet and fresh strawberries on arrival was a lovely welcoming touch. The spa was one if the cleanest I have been in. Overall a very good stay.

    staff politeness and helpfulness and kinowledge in dealing with our enquiries (Thomas) Lounge area was spacious and comfortable

    breakfast was not included for the price no bath available A lack of staff availablility during busy periods rather dated and drab entrance could do with smartening up with easier access for disabled guests

    Location is excellent

    Reception personnel were not friendly and not helpful at all. I found the staff were very busy and they did not give the proper care to guests. I will not be back to this hotel.

    Liked area Convenient Reception staff excellent Clean rooms Comfortable Clean hotel Afternoon tea very good.

    Breakfast staff most inefficient, chaotic and slow. Area for dining most inconvenient which made matters worse. After that experience had breakfast in delightful cafe across the road. Seating area, staff very polite but it took 15 minutes for order of two teas, two coffees. Beds hard ( my taste is for slightly softer)

    If you got a room in the fifth floor, ask for another one. The aircondition is extraordinary noisy - we got another room without any discussion and without any noise.

    Fifth floor ac noise.

    we liked the restaurant. Food and drink were very delicious.

    The view from the room was not good because of the lower price room.

    The Caledonian is a wonderful hotel, expensive but entirely worth the money for the quality of service and luxuriousness of the room. View of the castle was incredible and extra welcome touches in the room were a nice surprise.

    No negative comments.

    Location was good and convenient, door staff was excellent, room was clean.

    Overpriced classic room that did not include breakfast or overpriced parking. Classic room was on 1st floor and looked over kitchen and alley way. We booked to get a high floor room with a king bed and were given the lowest floor with a double bed. Very small rooms, bathroom had only shower - no tub. when we checked out for our early morning flight, we were charged for four (4) mini bar purchases that we DID NOT MAKE. But too much of a hassle at 6:00 am to get removed so just paid 10.40 pounds for nothing! Even though, we are Hilton Honors loyal members, it really does not grant you any upgrades and benefits at the property. We cold have stayed at the wonderful Witchery on Castle hill for less and with more benefits and wonderful view. View at Waldorf / Hilton was of alley and nasty kitchen roofs! Sorry but we will not book again.

    We stayed in a Deluxe Double room as part of a deal offered by this site. The same room would have cost over £500 had we booked them on the day. We were very happy therefore with price we paid. The room was huge as was the bathroom and both were decorated to a very high standard. The facilities in the hotel are also of a high standard (new gym machines, nice pool area, good choice of restaurants and bars). I would definitely recommend a stay here!!!
