OVERVIEW

Housed in a former Greek Orthodox Church off Blythswood Square just west of the city centre, this hotel has been given the usual 'Mal' treatment: bedrooms are boldly colourful, the brasserie serves hearty, crowd-pleasing food and the impressive bar area has a soaring glass ceiling, beer keg wall and playful neon sign.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

Malmaison has a 'nothing succeeds like excess' philosophy when it comes to design. The vibe here is certainly more crash-pad than cassocks, but there's lots of ecclesiastical black, lit up with pops of colour (think of a bishop wearing red socks). It is relentlessly laid back - and all about fun.

THE FACILITIES

Staff are unfailingly cheery and attentive. There's room service, same-day laundry and dry cleaning.

BED AND BATH

Rooms have quirky feature walls, pop art and clashing colours with lots of crushed velvet and moody lighting. Worn, rough terrycloth robes were a disappointment, but there are Arran Aromatics toiletries in the smart black and white tiled bathrooms, and the beds are great.

FOOD AND DRINK

Its all low-lit glamour in the brasserie, with low vaulted ceilings, gold columns and deep red banquettes.
