The Fabulous 5 star Edinburgh Caledonian cannot go wrong with this hotel. Excellent position just off Princes Street, it has a great swimming pool which my 2 year old son loves. This was our 2nd visit to hotel, having been when our son was 6 months old.
The staff bend over backwards to meet your expectations, I cannot fault the hotel in any way.
Breakfast is scrummy, you can have as much or little as you like, choices include cereal, fresh fruit, full cooked buffet breakfast, fruit juices, tea coffee, pastries etc etc.....I have never needed lunch after a Hilton brekkie!!!
We were meeting up with a friend who also stayed in the hotel, and has a 2 yr old son too, my only complaint is about some of the patrons in the "caley bar" where we went for a bar meal, kids are allowed in there until 8pm, and being 2 boys of 2 they were having fun, not screaming or yelling, but one woman felt the need to tell us to shut our children up as she was trying to have a conversation!!! Not sure if she was a guest or just out for a drink, but felt this was uncalled for as the hotel policy is 8pm then out....this was before 7pm!!! But not hotel fault, so be warned if you take kids.....gag them and tie them to the seat, or you might get told off from other patrons!
Didn't spoil or visit at all and we will be back for sure, infact my husband and I are booked for a stay in April! Enjoy!
