More Information

From its vantage point on Castle Rock, Edinburgh Castle dominates the city skyline, whilst beneath it, in regal splendour, stands Edinburgh's famous and well-loved luxury hotel. Perfectly located at the heart of this exciting city, close to castles, palaces, shops, restaurants, bars and galleries, no other venue captures such breathtaking views in an atmosphere of refined comfort and sumptuous elegance.

The Caledonian Hilton Hotel was originally opened in December 1903 by the Caledonian Railway Company, who named it the Princes Street Station Hotel. It was next to the old Princes Street Railway Station, overlooking the city’s famous castle and gardens. A luxury hotel, it quickly became popular with the rich and famous. The Pompadour restaurant was created in 1914, based on the lavishly decorated drawing room in the Royal Court style of Louis XIV. It is said to have the best table in Edinburgh, because of its view overlooking Edinburgh Castle and the fine cuisine served.
