There was always hype about Malmaison when they first opened and at the time I couldnt afford to stay in them or rather I could but there were other less expensive options out there to spendyour hardearned cash on. This was just a fleeting visit for an interview so I waqsnt too bothered what it was like as long as... More

We in fact were the very first ever Malmaison and are 21 years old this coming August. Whilst we are all very proud of being the 'Mother' of all Mals, this does bring some challenges... More

Great experience couldn't fault the hotel or staff at all, I ordered flowers to be delivered to our room and they were gorgeous and cheap. We upgraded aswell and it was amazing . The staff helped us with going out for a drink as the bar was a bit pricey but with pubs along the shore were close by. Will... More

This hotel is just outside of Edinburgh but the transport is great. Never waited longer than 5 minutes for a bus in or out of the city & bus stop is very close. It is a short walk from the Royal Yacht which is well worth a visit. Lots of lovely eating places near the hotel too. The meals in... More

Okay but will not rush back. We booked in as a group of 15 people for a week-end break. 2 staff on reception to help us check in which went fine. Our double room was big enough but I really don't think the hotel does itself any favours with the dark colour scheme. The door knobs on the wardrobe were... More

Very disappointing to find that I had been charged £35 following my visit and no idea what for! On enquiring at the hotel what the charge was for I was duly told 'bottle of wine'! Really before I had even given date of visit or name or room number! Very suspicious! Also the fact that I don't actually drink made... More

We booked a Malmaison special offer mid week break to include cocktails, dinner and breakfast Overall I think good value for money. The evening meal and the breakfast are nothing special but are ok. If I was going again I would choose to eat elsewhere. The building itself is nice and there was a lovely atmosphere with plenty of people... More

We booked 2 rooms - one for us and one for 2 teenage children for a short break between Christmas & New Year. Booking the rooms and check-in was easy and the rooms were located directly opposite each other so perfect for us all. The rooms were pretty chilly and this was due to the heating not being on in...

Originally living in Dublin, my husband organized my birthday weekend to Edinburgh. As we visited this city previously and stayed in a city center location hotel, we wanted to experience the north side of the city and decided to stay in Malmaison Hotel. From the very beginning everything was wrong. The hotel is extremely overpriced. The high prices are not... More
