We booked this as a stop over on the way up to Coombe Abbey near Coventry (already posted on Trip Advisor) and wished we had stayed here for the whole time.
We had heard about the Malmaison hotels and previous experience with other hotels with big reputations we were ready to be disappointed but were we proved wrong!
The room was amazing - very large with stunning decor and huge comfy bed and a very large 'wet room' bathroom with an awesome shower.
The evening meal in the restaurant was incredible. A large menu choice and our waiter left no stone unturned in his efforts to make our evening a memorable one - completely attentive even though he had other diners to look after as well.
The same level of service greeted us at breakfast - very cheery staff with nothing too much trouble.
Two things on the sevice side which were incredible - my wife had a bout of coughing in the bar (drink went down the wrong way!) and one of the bar staff brought over a glass of iced water without prompting. Then later we moved tables and my wife had left her mobile on the table and out of nowhere a member of staff spotted she had left the phone and brought it over, a level of service we have never experieced before.
The only down side was the view outside which overlooked some buildings which have seen better days, however the position was in the town centre so you can't expect to look out onto rolling countryside!
Can't wait to try Malmaison Oxford next!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The brief encounter, that fleeting glance from across the platform, a longing to be with the one you shouldn't...Meet me outside the station at this gloriously converted rail hotel. You shouldn't have this much fun so close to Heathrow, but you will at Mal. You shouldn't find a train set in your room, or a bath big enough for two, for that matter. ... more less
