Stayed for one night, very comfortable and clean. Ideally situated, close to the train station, cars, restaurants and theatre. Didn't have breakfast so couldn't comment. Check in was efficient with friendly staff. Could not fault it at all and would definitely stay here again.

Malmaison is centrally located in Oxford, walkable to everything in town and to all the Colleges. The rooms are very comfortable and the bar and restaurant are very good. Not a five-star but well worth the price.

This hotel is a renovated prison, and it's fantastic! I loved the grounds and prison cells that are now rooms. Very clean, comfortable beds, heated towel racks, hot showers, and really quiet-Brilliant

About
Description
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 ...More 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. Less

Dear Libby, We are fairly relaxed here at the hotel, and there is no particular dress code for dinner. Smart casual is what we would suggest, but please dress as smartly or as relaxed as you wish! Kind regards, Kasey
