Very large and modern pub that is part of the thriving scene on Osborne Road.

The glass entrance leads to a very bright and airy bar with a pine wooden floor and a small bar at one end.

The decor is a mixture of cream colours with very smart portrait pictures on the walls and there is spotlighting to the ceiling.

There is plenty of seating with modern style tables and chairs throughout the bar. This leads through to a further area at the rear that has additional seating of sofas and chairs.

There is a large widescreen TV inlaid in the wall as well as two other TV's on either side of a pillar, in the centre of the bar. Live sports are shown with all live football featured.

At the rear of the bar there is also a further lounge seating area that has another small bar. This leads through to the restaurant and the main part of the Caledonian hotel.

Regular music is on play at most times as next to the main entrance by the bar there is an old Wurlitzer juke box.

The bar attracts a more upmarket crowd and is bustling with a mixture of young people, students and hotel guests at the weekend.

It is more relaxed through the week when it is a little quieter, however the place comes alive at the weekend.

Outside there is a very large forecourt split into two areas one of which is in an elevated position. There is plenty of tables and chairs and large awnings that cover the area with some heated lamps.

Disabled access can be difficult to the bar as there are steps leading to the main entrance. Toilets are medium sized and are smart and clean.

The prices for the hotel start from £45.00 per room (room only). Standby rates are available at the reception.



Price: Expensive.
