Luxury Family Travel: Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh – The Caledonian

written by ChristingC May 20, 2024

Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh, known as The Caledonian, is one of the most iconic and luxurious properties in the city.  The historic property dates back to 1903 and is located on buzzing Prince’s Street within a stone’s throw from many of Edinburgh’s most famous sights.  We were instantly enthralled by the grand lobby, accommodating check-in and welcome to the property, and stunning well preserved architecture.  Our beautiful two bedroom suite boasted two spacious en-sute bedrooms, three decadent bathrooms complete with deep bathtubs and Aesop amenities, and a cozy separate lounge and dining table.  The highlight was the spectacular views of Edinburgh Castle from every window of the suite.  We throughly enjoyed exploring and experiencing the captivating property from the original stained glass windows and grand stairwells to the five star spa and swimming pool and incredible dining experiences.  Their mouthwatering  breakfast including a la carte options, a generous buffet, and variety of Scottish specialties is a must try and we highly recommend the elegant afternoon tea and Scottish fine dining at their gourmet restaurant, Grazing.  We were within easy walking distance to the popular old town sights, Ross’s Fountain, plethora of museums, and quaint Dean Village.  A perfect choice for families looking for world class luxury at the heart of Edinburgh.
