Twenty14 Holdings marked its entry into Scotland through the acquisition of landmark Scottish property Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh - The Caledonian. ‘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 and is just a two-minute walk from the designer stores on George Street. First opened in 1903 as part of the old Princes Street Railway Station The Caledonian currently has 241 rooms and offers awe-inspiring views of Edinburgh Castle.
Among improvements planned for the site, Twenty14 Holdings intends to engage local craftsmen to enhance the hotel’s historic Caledonian Suites. Luxury and style will be the keynote of these improvements. Bespoke furniture, eclectic artwork and en-suite bathrooms featuring marble and burnished chrome fittings will feature among a host of exclusive additions.
The Caledonian is also home to two exquisite restaurants operated by Michelin-starred brothers Chris and Jeff Galvin. These are the Pompadour by Galvin and Galvin Brasserie de Luxe. It also houses the only Guerlain spa in the UK, offering the glamour and prestige of its esteemed counterpart in Paris.
