The location of this chic hotel is one of the real attractions. Set in a quiet quad and surrounded by bars, restaurants and an excellent breakfast spot and right on the water, this hotel offers quality service and a great bar to relax in and enjoy the view. The rooms have good attention to detail and are tastefully decorated. The... More

We were really looking forward to our stay here as it had been recommended by friends. The room was shabby and not chic at all. The first thing we noticed was that the curtain rail had been on and off the wall several times and was now attached at a 'jaunty' angle to say the least leaving unsightly marks on... More

This was our second visit to this hotel and we chose it for its location as we were dining in Leith. As before, we found it to be clean and comfortable with very friendly and helpful staff. We had a standard room which wasn't huge but was perfectly fine for an overnight stay and the bed was extremely comfortable. The... More

Loved the hotel building and the location right on the water front. Our room was a suite overlooking the water.. Room 120. Lovely views and 3/3 sunny days which enhanced the view. The bed was massive and extremely comfortable. Would love one at home. Great shower. The room was a little tired and the bathroom freezing even with the heat... More

Having stayed in a number of Malmaison hotels we were looking forward to staying in this one as it was the first Malmaison in Scotland. It's in a wonderful location right down by the Water of Leith and has a car park for hotel guests. Check-in went smoothly with a chatty, enthusiastic Hungarian receptionist, unfortunately she overdid the praise on... More

Swift check in with just the right amount of information provided. Reception staff were able to talk about what was near the hotel which is always a bonus. Room was a good size with a really comfortable bed (I slept really well). My room didn't have a view but was comfortable. Breakfast was continental on our package but tasty (I... More

I stay at this hotel several times a year, and it is a firm favourite . There is no doubt as some reviewers comment that the once-swish decor, is now a little bit used in places, but it is still perfectly agreeable in general. The staff are always excellent. You can get good deals by booking online well in advance,... More

Dreadful damp smell throughout hotel. It felt like a good deep clean needed. Carpets stained and maintenance poor, difficult to open windows, shower temperature not ideal. Went for 'superior' room, standard must be v basic. Lots of pillows and stained carpet. I expect this place was once shabby chic. Very much dark and shabby these days, wouldn't stay again.

First time we have stayed in a malmaison and we were delighted. Lovely hotel, great service would return and would definitely recommend. The bed was very comfortable and facilities in the room...great. lovely coffee. Slight downside was the bath filled up with water when showering which was a bit off putting, obviously blocked, however the shower was great. Room a... More
