Each Malmaison Hotel is similar as well as different and the location’s context plays important role in its interpretation. In Edinburgh this will be a tradition of the city that is architecturally beautiful, rich and bonvivial, one of the most important port in Scotland where the Royal yacht Britannia is permanently moored.

Former Seaman’s Mission, restored 1994. Interior when reviewed first in 2000 let the Malmaison Hotel down, especially the heavly-ornate darkwood island bar.
The Malmaison Edinburgh hotel was refurbished in 2002. Jestico + Whiles Architects, London, were appointed for the interior design and worked with Ferrier Crawford as executive architects: completed May 2002. The grand entry now sadly weakened by new housing, Queens Quay, on what used to be open space.
