The Caledonian, A Waldorf Astoria Hotel
Spa & Leisure
Above what was once a grand Victorian railway, Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh – The Caledonian has been a part of Edinburgh’s architectural character since 1903, and now provides a bolthole in the city with all the trimmings, not least of all the Guerlain Spa.
In addition to a gym and personal trainers, the spa has a pool, Jacuzzi, sauna and steam room, and completes the luxury vibe with a collection of facials, wraps, scrubs, massages, manicures and pedicures courtesy of its product namesake, Guerlain, to achieve the ultimate goal of peace and quiet amidst the city buzz.
Hotel & Accommodation
Known locally as the ‘Caley’, Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh – The Caledonian is one of Edinburgh’s most significant historic buildings, attracting visitors for over 100 years. Having been restored by the international luxury brand, today it sits pride of place on Prince’s Street, retaining many of its original features including ornate columns and grand staircases.
The hotel’s two restaurants comprising a formal restaurant in the form of The Pompadour by Galvin, and the more relaxed Galvin Brasserie De Luxe, were founded by Michelin star chef brothers, Chris and Jeff Galvin. They offer an eclectic mix of French cuisine and gourmet delights in two opposing, but equally inspiring environments; one epitomising traditional opulence, while the other channels French urban design.
