Stayed at the Caledonia two nights recently - what a nice surprise. Just at the back of The Hoe and within a short hop to the Barbican this is a hidden gem. Our room was spotlessly clean with compact en-suite. Good supply of hot water at any time and nice fluffy towels. A warm greeting by Dave unperturbed by our...

Very clean and well decorated. Rooms and facilities a tad on the small size. Bed was not comfortable. Breakfast and overall service was excellent. Good location for the Hoe and a short walk to the city centre. Pubs and restaurants nearby.

Sorry to hear you were disappointed with the room and the facilities. We feel the room is adequate. As for your comments on the bed we have tried the bed for comfort ourselves plus we have asked several guests since who have used that room and they have commented on the bed's comfort, possibly a little soft for some people's...

We got there at 16:00 and were met by Karen and Dave. 2 nicer people I am yet to meet. They couldn't apologise enough because I was put on the first floor as I am on crutches. My fault for not informing them previously. The stairs were fine ( not to steep) the room was immaculate. White bedding, double bed,...

Stayed here for one night on a work trip. I arrived later than planned and the owners were very accommodating and gave a good welcome after my 5 hour drive. Room was comfortable, spotlessly clean, good heating, great wifi, free parking and had everything I needed for an overnight stay. Breakfast was good and the hosts were attentive. I've stayed...

This is the 2nd time I've stayed here. And it was as good as the 1st time. I was down working on the university graduation and this b&b is perfect. And I hope to be back again next year for another week's stay.

The Caledonia is centrally located within walking distance of all the major attractions, especially the Hoe which is literally a 2 minute walk (everything else is less than 10 minutes). Free parking is available in the rear so we parked our car there & walked everywhere for the 3 day stay. The house is immaculately clean & tastefully decorated. Rooms...

I'd taken this booking as a result of a colleague going sick and I'd had to cover his course. Always dubious about going into somewhere I'd not personally booked but what a pleasant surprise. Clean, tidy, great meet and greet from owner Dave and his wife. Assisted to my room by Dave. Although my room was right at the top...
