Nira Caledonia
The hotel was quite simply the best i have stayed in. The attention to detail was outstanding and the staff were friendly and helpful at all times. Our room was spotlessly clean with beautiful high ceilings looking out on to the beautiful Georgian street below. Would highly recommend this hotel.

The staff at the Nira Caledonia are superb, a wonderful greeting and a good check in at breakfast the following day to make sure we were all OK. Some tips for places to visit too. Our room was small but perfectly adequate for one night. Great location, nice quiet road, but still only a 15 min walk from the main areas. There are also some nice back streets nearby with smaller cafes and bars etc.

The Best
This is one of the best hotels i have stayed in, the attention the staff give you is second to none, a personal welcome card and call, the chef made some excellent food, it was no trouble catering for my unusual allergies, lovely room comfy bed and a large bathroom with a jacuzzi bath and jet shower. I really enjoyed my 3 nights as a lone female, but did not feel alone. Full marks

Very good helpful staff just a shame about noisy room next door, started blaring music out at 12 midnight. Had to change our room which was a pity because it was very nice. Staff changed room for us without any fuss. Would definitely stay again,hopefully with quieter neighbours.
