Absolutely brilliant! The Waldorf Astoria was one of the best hotel stays we have ever had! The venue and staff were impeccable and our castle view premium room was everything I had hoped. As a surprise birthday treat the hotel kindly decorated with tasteful banners and balloons, thanks to Henry (you smashed it!) This was our first stay in Edinburgh and we will definitely be coming back! The people and city are so inviting and cannot help you enough... taxi required? Sorted! Juice at 1am? No problem! Highly recommend, we will be back soon!
