Just returned from a one night, dinner bed and breakfast stay as a Birthday treat. Excellent hotel, nice relaxed environment with really friendly staff. Fantastic food in the restaurant. I've visited Edinburgh many times however this is the first time I've stayed in leith and wasn't disappointed. Highly recommended.

I still love this hotel group although this particular hotel is a little tired in places- notably the lift and bathroom. Bed very comfortable with crisp linens and room very clean. Not totally certain about the window finishes in bathroom - think I would have preferred a blind than the peek boo views to outside and more uncomfortably, out to...

Our room was in the newer extension of the hotel and afraid it was quite cold. Spoke with staff who provided another heater for the bathroom which was very cold. Good range of teas, coffees and facilities in the room.

We've stayed here on a number of occasions although this recent visit was our first in a few years. The hotel has been renovated and our room was new with a very comfortable bed and good amenities, plus a decent shower in the bathroom. Slight downside to our stay was when we came back to the hotel in the evening...

Great hotel. Third stay here now. Lovely quiet location with plenty of little bars and bistros near by. Walking distance to Ocean Terminal with shops restaurants and cinema and the Royal Yacht Britannia. Rooms are spacious, beds comfortable and clean and the staff are always welcoming and friendly. Easy reach up to the city centre as well.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
It's the mother of all Malmaison's. The former house of ill-repute now has a reputation that's second to none, and it's also just a short taxi ride away from Waverley Station. Malmaison Edinburgh bides at Leith (as they say up here), just a stone's throw from the Royal Yacht Britannia, but offering far more funky luxury. Yes, when you want exciting hotels in Edinburgh, this is the King, not the castle. Our Edinburgh hotel puts you close to all of Edinburgh's cobbled splendours, incredible shopping and famous galleries. Then it's back to Mal for Scots dining with a twist, a fine selection of single malts and mojitos in the bar and then back to the slinkiest and most spectacular rooms in the Scots capital. ... more   less
