I have just returned from a night in the Malmaison, Edinburgh and I have to say it's one of the best hotels I've ever stayed in.
Ok it's not in the centre of Edinburgh, it's at Leith Docks and it's easily accessible by car and avoids the hassle of driving in the city centre. The car park is closed at the moment, but there's free parking around the hotel and we had no problems getting a space.
We got a cheap deal on lastminute.com for £95 for a superior double room. The hotel's own rate is more expensive.
Our room was on the top floor with a great view of the redeveloped dock area. There are no long corridors with lots of rooms, you feel private and hidden away - our room being up a winding staircase.
The room itself was huge with four windows, the bed was also massive! The decor and furnishings were stylish and comfortable. There was a small tv and also a stereo system which was great (the hotel reception has a library of cds in case you don't have any). The bathroom was big, clean and modern and it was also really warm. There was a nice selection of aromatheraphy toiletries and big, fluffy, white towels were also on hand. The shower was very powerful: a definite bonus.
There's a minibar in the room and it's full of treats (beware there's no price list in the room) we consumed much of it and paid the price!!
The other bonus with the room was that it was quiet and felt very private. (room 42 so you know).
The staff at the hotel were all very friendly and helpful (albeit I needed some help with some accents!). We had a meal from the restaurant in our room and it arrived promptly and was still hot (unlike many hotel's room service).
I was very impressed with the hotel, the service and the food. I will definitely go again and have no hesitation in recommending it to others.
