Only downfall was a very poor bathroom shower that was sub standard for a hotel of this type and for the cost of room. I have stayed in this hotel multiple times and showers were always better than the one in this castle view room
great staff, great facilities and great location!
Breakfast was lovely but very expensive. Car Park was expensive too.
Breakfast was superb, bed very comfortable
The peacock alley bar and high tea in particular is very good and although expensive well worth the money
The room we had was a bit noisy as we were near the air conditioning units outside
lobby and bar were spacious and sophisticated
Carpet in room was soggy wet which we reported. Came back to room on second day to find a half drank bottle of water left lying there which had been taking out of minibar. Made me think if housekeeping could have done something so blatantly disrespectful and unprofessional then what else might they have done in my room. Reported and wine sent up to room as apology. For the price we paid we expected much better than both these problems, especially at the waldorf.

bed too soft, creaky floors
Staff, atmosphere and facilities
I liked the ambience of the hotel. Staff were very polite without going over the top. Room was very clean. Spa was first class.
Pushed the boat out for special treat for my girlfriend but found it expensive even booking through a website Didn't bring my iPod and would've liked a better choice of music to the four radio stations we could access.
The layout of the public spaces are large and sparse. It was like stepping back to the 1960's. The Brasserie restaurant is dreary and the bedrooms are small. Hot water takes an age to reach room 430.
Attention to detail and comfort, There was a 10 minute delay in our room being ready to occupy and we were provided with a complimentary bottle of wine , which was a nice gesture .
We enjoyed our stay , which was for one night only and found nothing to dislike.
Our room was gorgeous. Beds were very comfy. Service was excellent. Staff very friendly and welcoming. Great location.
Everything. Location,service,staff,quietness,cleanness,and everything else. Would strongly recommend it.
The beds are to smal
The doorman - one of the very few local Authentic Scottish members of staff. He was utterly charming!
The breakfast brassiere should be bombed! Who wants to eat breakfast in a room with no daylight and smelling of greasy fried food. A la carte breakfast menu of a bacon roll or croissant was disgraceful for a 5 star hotel. Foyer and ground floor areas felt like a giant airport hangar. All in all very poor and a huge disappointment. Bathrooms need serious updating - walk in showers and not leaky hand showers.
The view of the Castel is amazing, The space of the room is very good, The bathroom is a very good size and nicely designed. The team of workers are very lovable and very helpful
Had a really good stay for three nights.
The bed mattress was not very comfortable.
Perfect location, professional waiters, bar and reception staff. Gorgeous room with beautiful view.
Our bathroom was a bit toothpaste stains from before guest. A duvet needs a bit of cleaning or use bedsheets what is not let come out of cover.
For a hotel room in Europe it was quite spacious and very well appointed.
There was some confusion in speaking with the cleaning crew and the staff that brought up room service, but we managed.
Small but comfortable rooms with great showers and lovely beds
Location and view, and service was predominantly fine
didn't really rate hotel based on accom prices being charged. stayed at castes in Ireland and many other 5 star accom inc Cameron House on Loch Lomond and ALL Of them left Waldorf for dead!!!
Fantastic location in terms of being able to get to ticket offices and key venues. All within walking distance as long as your children buy into the lets walk philosophy! A lovely character to the building which echo s the mercantile past of the city. Teenage boys enjoyed the leisure facilities which gave them an option if a shopping moment didn't appeal. Great for tram routes from airport and bus routes to get out of the city. Central atrium lounge had a cosmopolitan feel and great for adults fancying an after show sit and a cocktail. Best location for access to restaurants and shops, lovely place just across the cobbles at the front door for breakfast!
Tried the breakfast room but it lacked a welcome from staff and an explanation of options. Tea served from roving thermos jugs ugh! And hot buffet dishes placed near cold air vents so lukewarm food. Did feed this back at the time to the manager but decided against further ventures there as cost didn't equate to an enjoyable experience. With teenage children I felt there was a slight lack of a comfy "somewhere to sit lounge" outside of the formal atrium lounge or the bar area.
We spent the last night of our honeymoon at the Caledonian and it was everything we had wanted. Fabulous!
The doormen were incredibly helpful. The location was convenient. The room was spacious and the bed was comfortable. One of the ladies at the front desk was very helpful and pleasant. We had requested both early check-in and a view, but were accommodated around noon with a room (there was a festival so we understood, but did wait all morning without an update).
The air-conditioning didn't work the first night, we had to request it being fixed. Someone tried to enter our room while we were sleeping the first day after check-in. The shower leaked greatly, even under the marble. Service was uneven, and non-existent in the Bar, certainly not up to standard for this level hotel.
Save with great café just outside the door
Food and drinks pricey but expected
Design of hotel is beautiful. Location excellent. Large beautifully furnished room with excellent views of the castle. The doorman and front of house staff were superb.
Bathroom - bath sealant grubby, floor tiles loose, tap dripping. Very few English/Scottish speaking staff in the restaurant and bar/lounge area. Some had difficulty understanding what we were asking for - and we couldn't understand them either.
