My husband and I have just returned from a two night stay at Malmaison, Oxford. On first appearances the hotel is very impressive, however our room was not in the main prison building but across the exercise yard in the 'Houses of correction' . This turned out to be a modern square block of four rooms stuck between two of the origonal stone prison buildings with glass partitioning joining it either side. Our room was very small, which I wouldn't have minded had it been a former cell !, but the room was rather worn and shabby in places, mainly chipped edges to bathroom fittings, a stain on the curtain linings and discoloured grouting. I also felt the room wasn't spotlessly clean or the corridors, with trays left outside rooms late into the evening. Another small detail was I felt they were rather stingy with the refreshment tray, one packet of biscuits for two guests ?!!. The room was too hot, and the air conditioning unit didn't appear to be working very well. We did not eat here, the staff we encountered were polite. I wouldn't stay here again, as the room was a let down for the price and the cleanliness let it down.

- If you're tired of doing hard time in run-of-the-mill hotels, it's a completely different story at our former gaol, Malmaison Oxford. Instead sip the coolest cocktails in the free world at MALBAR and enjoy an eclectic mix of classic dishes with a twist at the Brasserie, from freshly caught fish to the famous Mal Burger. Good behaviour will get you privileges like free Wi-Fi, drench showers, plasma TVs and and even toiletries that are just begging to be nabbed by light-fingered guests. This is one hotel in Oxford city centre where you'll be happy to get a long stretch. ... more less
