Have just spent 3 days at this lovely hotel.the place is very chic and modern. It's true the room was a little tired in places, but I'm nitpicking. Fabulous stay, staff left a bag of fluffy towels outside my room because I didn't want any housekeeping. Free wifi, rooms a good size, bed a little hard for my liking, but still comfortable. All in all, highly recommend. Thoroughly deserving of their 4 star billing.

We stayed at Malmaison Leith (Edinburgh) on a freezing weekend in March. Like most 'Mals' it is housed in a fabulous old building near the waterfront in an area that has been regenerated. There are plenty of nice pubs and restaurants close by (try The Shore, see separate review) and Edinburgh City Centre is only about a mile away. We were on a 'Mal' deal which gave us Bed, Breakfast and Evening Meal plus a bottle of wine for £99. Can't complain about that! The evening meal was from a fixed menu or you could choose to eat from the a la carte with an allowance. The food was very good and the service was excellent. The 'Mal' breakfasts are always superb with great choices of fresh fruit, juices and cereals plus plenty of choice from the cooked breakfast menu.
We upgraded on arrival and had a large suite with a comfortable four-poster. The bathroom was clean and bright with a good selection of toiletries.
One minor point - if you are a reader or just like to see what you are doing . . take a torch!
Everywhere, bedrooms and public rooms alike have very subdued lighting, vert romantic but no good if you want to read the paper :-)

Up in the city for a Wine Tasting event and chose The Malmaison Hotel for our accommodation through the Web.Found The location a bit awkward at Leith Dock not as described ie it is more than Five minutes from the hub of Edinburgh!Apart from that The Hotel has an impressive look very modern and Stylish, warm and welcoming.Bar area had good Character and our Bedroom very Clean bright and modern.Facilities were good! Breakfast in the morning was First class.Plenty of choice well presented, Staff attentative, and food Taste The BEST!Would highly recommend for a short stay and would definitely try Malmaison in other cities.

Room Tip: would have liked a front facing room but realise this could have an additional charge.

Stayed for a 2 night break including dinner on 1st night - we had a brilliant time and the staff were extremely pleasant and helpful. The food was delicious and it was so nice having your hot breakfast served instead of a buffet. The whole atmosphere was great. The room was very spacious and great facilities. Was also good being able to get the bus right into the centre of Edinburgh. No 22 from Ocean Terminal for £3.50 day ticket - great value. No worries about finding a parking space and much cheaper too.

Room Tip: We faced towards the side of the building - no faults with that at all.

The Malmaison group properties are getting a bit worn in some respects; but the Edinburgh hotel is still smart, contemporary and with a certain edge. Leith dock is a great location – water, character and ambience. The hotel itself warm, welcoming and as richly decorated and comforting as they all are.

My room faced nothing nice just another building – but this didn’t really matter; it was spacious, well furnished – with easy chairs, desk, cupboards and a well stocked mini bar. I had an en-suite bathroom with a good shower in the bath itself. Good accoutrement in the bathroom including loads of shower gel, body stuff and the rest. Lovely soap! Warm towels replaced each day if you want.

Reception staff were helpful and kind; the restaurant open late, with attentive staff and the food even at 10.30pm , freshly cooked, hot and appealing. Breakfast in Malmaisons are a relaxed affair with full English, cereals, juice, coffees, croissant and much more.

This hotel has free wi-fi (other hotels should take note).

It is not a five star experience – it lacks the staff numbers, the customer edge and (thankfully) the price; but this hotel has bucket loads of character and is comfortable, enjoyable space in a great city.

Room Tip: Ask for a front facing room.
