Family Stay the Malmaison Way

February 6, 2019


Family night? Romantic getaway? Business trip? Or maybe a weekend with friends? 


Either way, Malmaison Edinburgh has you covered with luxury bath tubs, contemporary style and it's one of the most artistic hotels in Edinburgh with a nautical painted reception area, quotes in the bar and beautiful designs in the restaurant, you'll be sure to love it.


Our Stay:


We truly enjoyed our family night away. 

Myself, Chris & Cailyn checked into a gorgeous suite around 3pm for the night. We pre booked dinner in the restaurant for 6pm and had a wonderful experience with the hotel & staff being so kind & understanding. 


Why I hear you say?

Because no family trip is ever complete without a screaming toddler at your side, this is the true reality of how some trips go down.

Cailyn was fantastic while we were in the room but sadly the restaurant was not where she wanted to be. 

I can’t recommend and thank the restaurant & staff enough for making us feel so welcome while trying to help us calm her down with print outs for her to colour in & a bag of pencils to enjoy. 


All she wanted was to be back in the bedroom and her pjs on...... I mean who can blame her really, the room utterly was fantastic!


The meal we had was so delicious, presented well & the restaurant staff really couldn’t do any more for you.

We opted to enjoy desert in the room while cuddled up on the sofa so it was a lovely end to the evening.


I’ve eaten here many times before and the standard of service is very high.

The staff are educated well on the food that’s available and If you love a cheese board I highly recommend it, just listen to how they talk about each cheese type. It's very impressive!


Take a look at how beautiful these dishes are....hope you’re hungry! 




The most enjoyable part of the stay was, for me, the bed! 

That bed was extremely comfortable and just the right kind of support you need during pregnancy. I felt rested, relaxed and very happy the next day. 


Just book yourself away for the night, you deserve to feel this way too. 


Cailyn had her own little bed which was added just for her and she loved it. 

*Extra beds & cots can be added on request* 

So do feel like you can bring the family with you as the hotel is definitely family friendly & the perfect location to enjoy what Leith has to offer.

There are a few soft play areas close by, boats for the children to enjoy and other attractions right on your doorstep or short bus trip away. 


Baths - do you love a good bath? 


I know I do and with wide selection at Malmaison you can enjoy a luxury bath tub in your suite with the most beautiful smelling branded products. 

Try and book ahead and grab the tartan bath, I’m yet to nab this room for me & Chris.... alone and enjoy the tub to myself. 




Now, can I just talk about room service? Breakfast in particular.... WOW!


The Malmaison has definitely got this in the bag, or basket it would seem. 

Myself and Cailyn enjoyed our morning relaxing and eating our way through the beautiful breakfast hampers that were delivered to the room. 

I opted for this out of convenience since Chris had left early for work, I just wanted to enjoy the morning with no tantrums from Miss Cailyn.

So to say I was impressed was an understatement and ordering breakfast to the room was the right choice. 


The hotel has many things to offer but these breakfast hampers and homemade Granola jars are the perfect start to any morning. so sit back, relax and enjoy!




Favourite Photos:


I’ve added a selection of my favourite photos below of the hotel & suite.

Scroll & then get booking. Even for dinner / drinks there’s just so many options with Malmaison Edinburgh that you really can’t go wrong. We’ve loved the brand for years staying in many in the uk. we'll definitely return for a romantic break.
