Major renovation rollout continues at Malmaison Edinburgh


Malmaison Edinburgh has unveiled the results of its £1m makeover, an investment which steps up a wider multi-million pound renovation programme across the Malmaison portfolio in Scotland.

With Malmaison Edinburgh complete, the iconic boutique hotel brand, which was purchased last year by Frasers Hospitality in a £363m deal, has announced it is to now rollout the refurbishment across the rest of its Scottish hotels under the Malmaison and Hotel du Vin umbrellas.

While there are four Malmaison hotels in Scotland, Malmaison Edinburgh was the first branded hotel to open when it was launched in 1994 and now boasts a new-look ‘Chez Mal’ Brasserie and bar, as well as higher quality luxury bedrooms.

As part of the makeover plans, Glasgow Malmaison underwent a renovation a year ago, while work is on the cards for its existing Aberdeen Malmaison, including the refurbishment of its bar and restaurant.

The Malmaison brand now consists of 13 hotels as part of the wider 33-strong Malmaison Hotel du Vin Group.

Paul Roberts, CEO, Malmaison Hotel du Vin, said: “Edinburgh was home to our first ever Malmaison and has been a cornerstone of the brand’s success. It is hugely exciting and appropriate to see the hotel’s pioneering nature in evidence once again. The re-launch of Malmaison Edinburgh marks the continuation of the multi-million pound investment programme into the brand’s Scottish properties, as well as Malmaison’s sister brand Hotel du Vin.”
