Great hotel, lovely spacious rooms, friendly & helpful staff, excellent support during our weeklong workshop. Great location too. Food was excellent throughout, with a healthy variety and delicious sauces. Yum!

Just wanted to thanks Marta and her team for a really fantastic stay at Malmaison, Edinburgh, in the heart of the harbour in lovely Leith. We've been here for five days and the "Crossover Scotland" Lab that we have been running here has been a fantastic experience, made all the more pleasurable by your wonderful food, room service and professionalism. Thank You! We've had such a good time, we are booking our next Lab at Malmaison... Thanks!

Helped run a conference over five days, least stressful week I've had in a long time! The food was delicious, exciting and varied. Every member of staff was enthusiastic and took pride in what they did. Particular thanks to Marta for making the whole process streamlined and simple. Also just the right distance from city centre bustle but not so far as to be completely cut off! Would recommend to anyone.

Great food, great service, great rooms but overpriced drink.

The food was fantastic throughout my stay and the staff were very professional and helpful. The only downside was the price of the drinks at the bar.

I have had the pleasure and privilege of staying here for four days. I cannot fault the staff or the service. The room was beautiful and comfortable and clean. The meals were mouth waveringly delicious. I loved the little extras. I loved the warm welcoming staff. This is a lovely friendly place and i loved my stay there. Thank you Malmaison staff for making my break so relaxed and friendly.

We visited Malmaison Leith on sunny Monday for a couple of beers and a light lunch al fresco.

Full marks for having outdoor seating available unlike many places. Full marks for presentation and good food. A trio of mini-burgers and a shrimp club.

Waiter was very charming and the service was good ........ UNTIL other tables started to fill up and being on his own, he was unable to cope. Sadly the service then deteriorated to very poor and slow. This culminated in a 10-15 minute wait for the bill which we eventually had to go inside for.

Restaurants please realise that when people want to go, they want to go. Keeping them waiting for the bill achieves nothing; they aren't going to order more drinks nor food nor coffee, they are occupying a table which fresh customers could use and it leaves a frustrated taste in the mouth, no matter how delicious the food had been prior.

We don't mind paying premium prices in a self-styled premium establishment but the service must be premium-plus to satisfy us.

"Does the bill include a service charge?"
"No, Sir."
"Good."

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
