Good quality hotel, clean, friendly staff, interesting layout as finding the room was a challenge!! The bar was not too expensive and it's only a short £8.00 taxi ride to the main areas of Edinburgh city centre. The hotel is situated by a main river which makes for a good view from some rooms.

Just returned from a 3 day trip in Edinburgh where we had the pleasure of staying at Malmaison. We thought the room was gorgeous, well thought out and extremely good value for money. The location also worked for us as there are quite a few lovely restaurants and bars within walking distance after a long day shopping in the city.... More

My wife and I booked and prepaid for a "weekend special" at the Malmaison in Edinburgh, a hotel we have stayed at before and really like. The offer was two nights B&B with cocktails and dinner on one night. When we arrived the room was clean and tidy, Ok there was damp coming in around the window and french door... More

We went to the Brasserie for their Ultimate Sunday Brunch which is excellent value for money at £19.99 per person. We actually bought an ITISON voucher which gave us half price which was even better. It is a help yourself starter (including soup), then you have your main and dessert served to you at your table. Cannot recommend it enough,... More

Stayed here for 2 nights and the staff seemed friendly. The room was quite small and the phone was broken. The breakfast was good, I had the Mal omelette which was more like scrambled eggs nonetheless still good and the 2nd morning had the Mal breakfast which had some amazing sausages. We also did dinner here in the evening, recommend... More

The hotel is situated away from the city centre shops, and will cost you £9-£10 in a taxi to get to and from Waverley Station. The bar and restaurant are nice enough, although some areas could do with a refresh. All in all our stay was acceptable, although I was expecting something a little more luxurious considering we selected the... More

My husband and I stayed here on 31st October as we were visiting Martin Wishart Restaurant which is nearby. The location was excellent. Our room was very nice and the bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was lovely. We were provided with a menu and there were none of the usual surcharges for certain dishes. We would definitely recommend and... More

Probably the best positioned hotel in Leith, plenty of free parking around the hotel.in the heart of great restaurant ,pubs and the lively waterside area. We ate at the hotel and the food and service was excellent. Would recommend without reservation.

This is a very nice hotel - great location within a short walk of some really lovely restaurants and bars. The rooms are very nice - great showers and comfy beds - although the décor felt a little dated and could do with being refreshed. I had £25 charged to my card at check-in which I was quite surprised by... More
