Given a hotel's primary function is somewhere to sleep I didn't have a great time at this branch of Malmaison. The first room I was put in was in the eaves of the building on the west side. There was no AC in the room (a fan was offered) and the Velux windows couldn't be opened. Being June, even in Scotland the temperature was unacceptable. Especially as the bedroom was at the top of the duplex.
The hotel kindly offered to move me to a room on the East side which had AC. I specifically asked "is it a quiet room" - "yes" came the answer. "No" was the truth.
There is an access road down the side of the hotel on the East side. About 5:30, I assume dust carts and delivery trucks, started to arrive. So that was me awake. It went on for at least an hour. Damage done.
The general decor of the hotel gives off the feel of a hotel that was very stylish when it opened. It now has the tired edges and really needs to be closed for a month and spruced up. Spending this sort of money on a hotel and not getting a pristine finish is disappointing.
To end on a positive - the breakfast was great and the staff friendly and attentive across the reception/bar and restaurant.
