    Excellent hotel in a great location. The service was brilliant although on each day we had to wait about 20 minutes to be seated for breakfast. This was probably due to the fact that the City was staging two major sporting events and therefore the hotel was full. Reasonable rates considering demand for accommodation was high for that weekend. I would definitely stay there again.

    Location is good for shopping, but if you are out of towner, and have your own car driving in a strange city, you'd be lost before you could find the hotel even with sat nav assistant, the traffic system of the city around the hotel is confusing

    The hotel is too big with a very long corridor, I was lost in the hotel to find my way back from my room to hotel lobby even though my room was only on E level

    very clean hotel, extremly plesent gentleman on the door sorry did not get his name,large man grey hair glasses.Guy serving in the whisky bar had a dour face.If he is happy at his work tell him to tell his face.

    parking is poor advise your guests to use park and ride as you cant really use your car in town.

    This was a great base for the time that we spent in the city, it was central and easy access to the train,bus services and a short distance for the airport. We also found it to be very quiet to be so central.

    We did not mind having to climb the stairs and trundle through the lobby, but this would not have been ideal for some people with walking difficulties otherwise no complaints

    A first class hotel, with excellent staff. The breakfast was fantastic and the location was good for sightseeing and shopping.

    The only thing I did not like was your advertising. I booked my room for £169 for two nights, where you showed that it had been reduced from £508. I don't think that the room I was given was of that value, maybe I am wrong.

    Very comfortable beds. Good location and beautiful building.

    Some of the hotel's common areas, especially the toilets, were not what you would expect of a five star hotel.

    I liked the location ,some of the staff,and services and obviously the room itself

    the pool was very small and there was no rooms for swimming

    The staff were friendly and cannot do enough to ensure our stay was perfect. The location was execllent if you like being in the heart of the city.

    efficient staff. dealt with fire alarm in a competent manner

    shower/bath taps were a little tired and needed repaired.

  • Older travelers
    6.6

    Had major problems, did not have our reservation although we had paid for it in full. We did not know until the check out time that we were not going to have to pay the full amount of 215 pound again. They tried to charge us 60 pound instead of 20 pound for carparking. It gave us huge undue stress, even armed with information as to when we paid the amount, some 6 months prior they treated as though we were trying to get out of paying. They were apologetic at the end, but our 2 days in Edinburgh were wrecked, and we are unlikely to ever go to Edinburgh again. Also considering that it suposed to be a 5 star hotel, the room appearance was not 5 star.

  • Older travelers
    6.2

    Location and the restaurant are good.

    The room was a great disappointment, very small and one very small window. A two star room at five star prices. We will not stay here again.

  • Older travelers
    5.0

    It's location was excellent

    Our room was closer to two stars rather than a four star rating. The hotel is very tired and worn and in need of a major upgrade. Instead of providing free Wi-Fi there was a charge of 15 pounds, very off putting! I booked there as it was a Hilton hotel assuming it would be of a certain standard,that assumption was as dated as the Caledonian.
