Malmaison is to open a 72-bedroom hotel in Edinburgh's St Andrew Square in 2018.
The grade-A-listed Buchan House will be renovated by S Harrison Developments before opening next year. It will be the brand's second site in the city.
Sister property Malmaison Edinburgh Leith was the first ever Malmaison to open in 1994, famously occupying the site of a former "house of ill-repute".
The new hotel is the latest in a series of developments for the Malmaison brand, which includes plans for sites in Bournemouth and York. All the new developments feature the Chez Mal bar and brasserie and the ‘Work + Play' meeting and events concept.
Guus Bakker, chief executive officer, Malmaison Hotel du Vin, said: "Edinburgh is a much loved global destination for tourists and businesses alike, and Malmaison is a great fit for the City and its visitors. We are delighted to be complementing our very first hotel, in Leith, with a great venue for visitors to the city centre.
Where better to demonstrate our commitment to Scotland than with the opening of Malmaison in the famous St Andrew Square?"
