Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh - The Caledonian holds court in a spectacular city location overlooking the grandeur of Edinburgh Castle. Formerly the railway hotel for Princes Street Station, this seven story Edwardian charmer has retained many original architectural features after a magnificent £24 million 2012 renovation. Superbly situated at the west end of Princes Street, the hotel is a short walk from the fashionable bars and posh shops of George Street. An enchanting marriage of historic and contemporary grace, The Caledonian was once the haunt of celebrities including Charlie Chaplin, Elizabeth Taylor and Sean Connery.
This city landmark was built in 1903, and many of the 241 stylish, contemporary guestrooms offer breathtaking views of the historic castle. Guests settle down to peaceful sleep surrounded by cloud-soft mattresses and exquisite signature linens while bathrobes, slippers and complimentary toiletries add pampering touches to spacious bathrooms.

Service from Milena (who hails from Bulgaria), at afternoon High Tea was first class. She is a great communicator who is customer service focussed and a genuinely nice person. She is one for you to endeavour to keep on the payroll and train her for alternative roles in the hotel.
Some of the seating could be more comfortable- chairs too big and lacking in proper support.

Would just like to express my thanks for a wonderful afternoon. My sister and I were reliving childhood memories of Christmas at the hotel. We had the most wonderful afternoon tea. All the food on offer was delicious and the service was second to none. I have to say having had afternoon tea at most of Edinburgh's top hotels but this outstripped them all. I have no hesitation in saying we will no longer consider going anywhere else in future and look forward to a return visit in the new year. Pleas pass my comments to your staff and thank them for making our afternoon so enjoyable
