We stayed at the Malmaison oxford as a birthday treat for my wifes birthday. it was somewhere she had always wanted to stay, in one of the converted prison cells. We booked one night for the 7th October in a cell room (room 120).
From the moment we arrived the staff were friendly and attentive, presenting us with a handwritten card from the front office manager welcoming us to the hotel and offering us two free glasses of bubbly from the bar. the room wasnt ready and we had to wait for an hour but that was no problem as we were slightly earlier than advertised check in time anyway.
We had paid for car parking as an extra and when it came for the valet "Andy" to park the car it wouldnt start due to a flat battery. Andy was exceptional and pushed the car into a space at the front of the hotel before jump starting it and sitting in it with the engine running to try to get some life into the battery so that it would be ok in the morning for us.
The room itself was clean, spacious and to use my wifes terminology (over and over) was "awesome" if there was one critisicm of the room is that it was too warm and caused us some difficulty sleeping.
The hotel was excellent and all staff friendly and helpful. i would not hesitate in reccomending this hotel to others wishing to stay somewhere different. We will certainly be trying some of the other Malmaison hotels in the future.
