Property Description

The Caledonian, A Waldorf Astoria Hotel, has recently undergone a luxury re-launch following a £24 million investment and renovation programme to bring this landmark Scottish property into the Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts portfolio.'The Caley', as it is affectionately known among Edinburgh locals, has embodied the very best in Scottish hospitality for over a hundred years. Situated at the west end of Princes Street, this former Victorian railway hotel nestles in the shadow of the historic Edinburgh Castle, just two minutes' walk from the designer stores and fashionable bars of George Street. In an exciting partnership with Michelin-starred brothers Chris and Jeff Galvin, who have brought their culinary expertise and talent to Scotland for the first time, The Caledonian is proud to offer two exceptional new restaurants - The Pompadour by Galvin and Galvin Brasserie de Luxe. With their renowned dedication to perpetuating the very best in traditional French haute cuisine, the à la carte and tasting menus at The Pompadour by Galvin feature classical French-inspired dishes, prepared with an accent on locally-sourced seasonal Scottish ingredients, as well as traditional Scottish and English favourites. The chic but informal Galvin Brasserie de Luxe brings Parisian style to the heart of Edinburgh and the design theme pays homage to the grand urban French bistros of Paris and Lyon, with its highly polished surfaces, ceramic tiles, archetypal lighting, and reflecting mirrors. The atmosphere is redolent of the bustling cosmopolitan railway hotel restaurants of the past. The menu features a blending of classic French brasserie favourites and local seasonal specialities, to include Prixe Fixe, plats du jour, Scottish Crustacea and à la carte menus. The Caley Bar has received a full make-over and will be instantly recognisable as an Edinburgh classic. Guests can choose from a handpicked drinks list and classic original cocktails including the signature '1903'.Peacock Alley formally the station concourse and ticket office, represents the historic heart of The Caley, and is imbued with the peerless style and sophistication of this famous former railway hotel. At once channelling the glamour and prestige of the old Caledonian and the Waldorf Astoria New York, Peacock Alley is the perfect spot for breakfast, afternoon tea or elegant drinks.The Guerlain Spa, the only one in the UK, offers pampering and treatments for men and women, for reviving and healing, or just for pure indulgence. A sanctuary of luxury and relaxation, this exclusive spa will leave you refreshed and invigorated, according the treatment that you select.
