Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh-The Caledonian

Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh - The Caledonian once was, and still is, the epitome of style and excellence. Following an extensive refurbishment in all areas of the hotel, Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh offers a total of 241 newly and luxuriously renovated guest rooms and suites, many with spectacular views of Edinburgh Castle, the number one tourist attraction in the UK.  In room amenities include Nespresso coffee machines, Salvatore Ferragamo bathroom products, luxurious Waldorf Astoria bathrobes and slippers and specialised Waldorf Astoria 300 thread count bed linen.

The former railway station hotel, dating back to 1903, stands proudly at the west end of Princes Street, which is the ideal location to discover the majestic capital city of Edinburgh.

Explore Edinburgh’s colourful history including listed buildings dating back to medieval times, and enjoy a number of the internationally renowned festivals which take place throughout the year.  Indulge in the array of restaurants Edinburgh has to offer including our very own Galvin Brasserie de Luxe and Pompadour by Galvin operated by Michelin starred chefs Jeff and Chris Galvin.  Relax and experience the first and only Guerlain Spa in the UK, a haven of luxury and tranquillity, with unique treatments only available at Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh. 

Scotland’s capital is rich in historic buildings and monuments, the mediaeval Old Town being a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Edinburgh is famous for its year round calendar of events, the highlight being the Edinburgh International Festival and Fringe in August, which has launched the careers of many famous artistes.

The city lies within easy reach of two of the world’s premier golf courses.  Muirfield, host of The Open, lies a few miles west along the coast from Edinburgh overlooking the Firth of Forth. Gleneagles, about an hour’s drive to the north is host of The Ryder Cup.

Located at the heart of the hotel, and inspired by the grand social promenade that connected the original Waldorf and Astoria hotels in New York, Peacock Alley is a place for guests and locals “to see and be seen”.  The epitome of elegance and sophistication, Peacock Alley is the hub of the hotel’s social scene for afternoon tea and cocktail time. Its experienced team craft all of the classic and exclusive signature Waldorf Astoria cocktails; here is to be found the essence of the unique and unforgettable Waldorf Astoria experience.

Renovated to Waldorf Astoria’s peerless, internationally-renowned standards, each room and suite offers a backdrop of luxury, style and sophistication, with bespoke furniture, eclectic artwork and pristine en-suite bathrooms with marble and burnished chrome fittings.

Enter the world of Guerlain Spa, a haven of luxury and tranquility in one of Edinburgh’s most famous and historic hotels.
Imbued with Guerlain’s world-renowned ethos of elegance and sophistication, this luxury Edinburgh spa echoes the glamour and prestige of its peerless Champs Elysées counterpart, with uniquely-tailored beauty and skincare experiences that draw on Guerlain’s  long history of innovation and excellence.     

Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh, is home to two inspired eateries - The Pompadour by Galvin and Galvin Brasserie de Luxe - from the renowned Michelin-starred chefs Chris and Jeff Galvin.
In 2005 the Galvins established their reputation as a team in their own right by opening Bistrot de Luxe in London’s Baker Street. The success of the venture has led to the creation of the renowned Galvin at Windows, on the 28th floor of the London Hilton on Park Lane, the multi award-winning 2102 La Chapelle, and Galvin Demoiselle, overlooking the famous Food Hall in Harrods.
The Galvin brothers hold two Michelin stars and ten AA Rosettes, and were named AA Chefs' Chef of the Year in 2011.
