The hotel is a brilliant architectural conversion from a former prison. We stayed on A wing! Our room was spacious and well equipped (actually three former cells). Staff were friendly, professional and always helpful. We had the cooked breakfast, which was very good and served to order. The hotel is very well placed for exploring Oxford. There are plenty of...

I stayed at the Malmaison on Sunday 25th May for a Bank Holiday treat as I had a friend visiting from Portsmouth. I've stayed a few times before and every visit has been exceptional so my expectations are very high. However, that doesn't stop Malmaison from exceeding them every time. When we arrived check in was very quick, efficient and... More

We stayed for Saturday and Sunday night at this hotel. We made the most of their 'Sunday stopover' offer. It's £99 for the room and you get £75 to spend in the brasserie. The hotel is really unusual as it is a converted prison and has been refurbished to a high standard but retains the character of the original building.... More

A lovely quirky hotel in the heart of Oxford. We stayed in a superior queen room in the main jail building and loved it. Very atmospheric especially at dusk with the light streaming through the small prison windows. The room is made up from 3 converted cells and metal plated door which is very effective. Just after arrival, a member... More

Excellent nights stay at the Malmaison as a birthday treat. Historic luxury room in the House of Correction with a birthday treat left by the hotel. Great diner with complimentary glass of champagne. Exclusive cocktail bar too!

We chose to stay here as the hotel has some great history behind it. We were very impressed with the customer service received on arrival. Our room was delightful, clean, modern and a well stocked in the mini bar. We had a great time exploring around the hotel in the different areas. Maybe overpriced but isn't everywhere in Oxford?

It's a quite beautiful conversion of the old prison. Rooms at fairly nice but very overpriced for the size. The shower is a rain water one so very hard to avoid wetting your hair. Especially to turn it on. Bed was hard and lumpy but sheets nice and clean. Breakfast was ok but staff were fairly unhelpful and at times... More

Brilliant service and friendly staff. This is by far the best cream tea that I've had in Oxford! A box selection of tea, warm soft scones!! Very impressed and would 100% recommend if you want something special. Very reasonable price too.
