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.

We stayed for 2 nights at Oxford Malmaison, and all in all enjoyed our stay. The staff were friendly and very accommodating, and very helpful if presented with any requests or questions. The room we stayed in was the Henry Coope Stace governor room, which we were moved to when the staff were told my mom has breathing problems (... More

We stayed here for a Sunday night Stopover - very good value! The hotel itself has lots of character. It has a few bars and a small restaurant downstairs. The cocktails were very good! All the staff were very helpful. The hotel itself is in a great location and does offer paid for parking if needed (best to book in... More

I have always felt that Oxford hotels are all overpriced. This one especially so. Perhaps due to the passing nature of the overseas tourist trade. It's very well located, clean and partly interesting. Our room was like an overpriced Premier Inn (3x overpriced) with better toiletries and check in/ out with staff who appeared snooty and one who was downright... More

We were visiting Oxford with friends and chose to say here as we had heard good reviews from other friends. The location is great, right next to the main shopping street within easy walking distance of all the must see tourist spots and next door to a great pub. The welcome was good, our car was parked, cases carried to... More
