I can't fault the hotel or the staff, but will let others sell that to you properly. My only issue was being hit with a near £60 bill for two-day parking when checking out. There was no mention of such a huge cost when we arrived. All other additional costs (wine in room etc) was very well signposted, but the... More

Comfortable stay at the old jail. We felt it was a little overpriced for what you get and you tend to get more at a good best Western for less than half the price. Personally I'm not a fan of the rain shower head or the items for sale on display in the room so put the overpriced crisps and... More

We stayed in a superior room which was very nice, bathroom was lovely with a huge shower and freestanding bath. The room was a good size and very clean. The bed was quite hard. Think they could provide complimentary water. We ate in the restaurant and really enjoyed our meals and also breakfast. We found the staff all very helpful... More

My wife and I stayed overnight when visiting Oxford. The hotel looks amazing and the rooms were cleverly and attractively decorated / furnished. We hadn’t intended to eat there in the evening but the staff were so friendly we did and it was a good choice. The food was fantastic and the staff were very friendly and, it particular, Yolanda...

This hotel is situated in the old Oxford jail and the rooms are all converted from the old cells. Each room was 3 cells and they are very stylish and good value for money. The hotel has a very unique atmosphere due to its history and it adds to the overall stay. The only thing that was not too impressive... More

My partner booked this hotel, probably like many others as it was close to the Theatre where we were off to watch Derren Brown, and unlike London there isn't a massive choice of a million hotels. I have to say from the outset the negatives are minor, and overall this is a lovely hotel. Both of us are in our... More

We have been looking forward to our trip to Oxford Malmaison for some time, to celebrate our wedding anniversary on a rare child-free weekend. Overall the hotel was lovely but seriously let down by a faulty shower we have since discovered is not a new problem in the room. Positive: * Fantastic building and wonderfully converted- very atmospheric * Quick... More

Went to Malmaison on Saturday evening 28/03/2015 for a evening meal with friends to celebrate a birthday. The food was average, service was slow and difficult one of the party had a coffee knocked over her. We finished the night off with a Grande Cheese board for four people and to be honest have been served better quality food on... More
