Once in a life time trip from USA.

The staff were fantastic the location was perfect. The view was wonderful
At first we were set up in a small no view room with steps to the bathroom. After I told them I can't do the steps in the bathroom. They were able to change us to a room with no steps and a beautiful view. The staff in the peacock alley were fantastic and very friendly. All and all very nice 5 star hotel.

Over priced

Public areas grand location wonderful pleasant staff
Unfortunatly we received a back facing room to the a/c court yard filled with mist noise and no view! The bathrooms very very very date and feel Dirty because of the falling grout peeling paint, old shower glass partition left in place with no glass...looks very run down more like a road motel the the waldorf Astoria!!! .. Very very disappointing especially after paying an arm and a leg for a romantic stay in a posh hotel!!

Old hotel. Good location. Great breakfast.

Breakfast and location for princess street and castle
Good location. Old hotel but still has a lot of charm. If you want to enjoy the old city in the evening then maybe look to hotels in that area too.

Good hotel. Tiny noisy rooms

Staff and location
Good location. Great staff but noisy and small rooms. We stayed at the Scotsman a few days before and the room was 2.5 times larger for the same cost. The hotel is also not luxurious enough to be called or to carry to Waldorf name - but the people are excellent.

A quick visit to Edinburgh

Location, staff, History and feel of hotel
I made a quick trip to Edinburgh for thanksgiving. Loved the city, food bars, and the vibe of the place. Weather could have been better, but I did choose that time of year.

Edinburgh's finest hotel and travel experience!

The staff, the interior and the cleanliness
Our stay was first class. Lovely, professional and warm staff coupled with a superbly clean and beautiful interior will certainly make us return to this fantastic hotel. The location is brilliant in terms of access to the best restaurants, bars, designer shops and of course the castle. Highly recommended to all if you require all your boxes ticked!!

We stayed in a kind deluxe room at the Caley for six nights. It was very comfortable, and the staff was very accommodating. I would love to stay there again.
