We don’t cover UK boutique hotel chain Malmaison much on HFP because it does not partner with any airlines or operate as part of any major loyalty scheme. They did have a Virgin Atlantic deal at one point but it ended 3-4 years ago.
Over Christmas, a new Malmaison hotel opened in Edinburgh. This is the first opening for some time. One of the first Malmaison hotels was in Leith, but this latest property is in the city centre. It is located in St Andrew Square, in the New Town.
At the moment, Malmaison is running a decent advance booking promotion for its hotels. If you can commit to a pre-paid booking at least 90 days in advance, there are substantial discounts available.
There are participating properties – generally decent – in Aberdeen, Belfast, Birmingham, Brighton, Cheltenham, Dundee, Edinburgh (now x2), Glasgow, Leeds, Liverpool, London, Manchester, Newcastle and Reading.
The Oxford hotel, picture above, is famous for being based in a converted prison! This is not included in the Advance Booking offer.
