Artist's Description

An Historic Scotland Category B Listed Building

Built in 1833, the Malmaison Hotel, in Tower Place beside the entrance to Leith Docks at The Shore, Leith, in Edinburgh, Scotland, was formerly a sailors’ home.

The Shore was the original Port of Leith which serviced the city of Edinburgh.

The Sailors’ Home provided accommodation for sailors whose ships were in port. There were comfortable rooms for each rank, a canteen, a low cost clothing shop, recreational rooms and a chapel.

It was an innovation in social care at a time when many workers lived in overcrowded slums. The angel in the stonework above the door was an emblem for the seamen’s mission.

The Malmaison Hotel is an Historic Scotland Category B Listed Building (HB Number 27912).
