Edinburgh and the Lothians Hotels

The Caledonian, a Waldorf Astoria Hotel


  • Service with a smile
  • Good breakfast choice


  • Internet access is extra
  • May lack the "wow factor" for some

Fodor's Review

An imposing block of red sandstone beyond the west end of West Princes Street Gardens, "The Caley" has imposing Victorian decor and beautifully restored interiors. Built between 1898 and 1902 as the flagship hotel of the Caledonian Railway, its public areas have marbled green columns and an ornate stairwell with a burnished-metalwork balustrade. Now a Waldorf Astoria hotel, the hotel's elegant guest rooms are sumptuous and understated. But it's the two superb restaurants—La

Pompadour and Galvin Brasserie De Luxe—that stand out.

Not Going Back To The Caley

We had a poor expirence at the Caley. We had to have things fixed in the room everyday. Management seemed a bit arrogant towards guests and employees. Be aware one half of the hotel has air conditioning and the other half does not. Room was outdated. Better places to stay in Edinburgh at this price point.
