Wonderful!”

The location was perfect for us. The room was very comfortable; we especially appreciated windows that opened for fresh air. The staff was so helpful and we appreciated their advice very much.

My brother and I loved staying at The Caledonian and would recommend it to anyone. The staff was attentive and very helpful. We really liked our room and the amenities offered, especially the very comfortable beds. My brother had been attending Exeter College in Oxford and his room there was pretty basic. He really appreciated The Caledonian bed. The location of The Caledonian is wonderful. It is perfect for exploring Edinburgh. Lots of great restaurants and shopping. I hope to return with my husband in the near future, the best compliment I can give - I want to return!

Comfort and peace of mind”

great service and staff

this was the second time i have stayed in the caledonian. again the room was very comfortable and we had everything we needed to be content. we had no castle view but that did not bother us. the location is superb, breakfast and the dinner we had was lovely and staff in this place are friendly and helpful on both occasions. the gym is small but very well equipped. the pool and jacuzzi are adequate but could do with a face-lift. overall a very good hotel to stay in when visiting edinburgh. would highly recommend.

Beautiful hotel, wonderful staff”

The helpful staff, the comfort, the location

We stayed only one night at The Caledonian as we had to fly out early the next morning. The staff was so gracious, helpful and kind to three weary travellers that we felt comfortable instantly. The room was beautifully appointed and the view of Edinburgh Castle was magnificent. Like Eloise at the Plaza, we would have moved in to stay if only we hadn't had a flight to catch (and not such deep pockets)!
