Guest Lounges

Your journey starts before you board our train – which is why we have worked to create several station lounges across Scotland. That means you can enjoy the famous Caledonian Sleeper hospitality before you even depart.

Our Guest Lounges all have accessible shower and toilet facilities, while Caledonian Sleeper hosts will be on hand to serve drinks and snacks to guests ahead of and after their journey.
