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.

It’s an interesting place due to the prison vibe which is the theme throughout. Rooms that were formerly cells etc.
Room was perfectly good and bed comfortable. Very nice towels. Limited hanging space as usual.
Central location.
Check in was a bit clumsy and you have to pay up fr

We stayed in the old wing of what was once Oxford jail. The room was three cells that had been converted. Service was very good and the staff was very helpful with regard to local attractions. Overall a great experience

The Malmaison is a funky, trendy, hip hotel in the heart of Oxford. For those that have ever stayed at a W hotel, it's along those same lines.

The hotel is an old jail and they have been careful to keep some of those elements in the decor which makes the decor and design very c

OK so this is a shopping trip to Oxford and we wanted a hotel near the centre of Town so we opted for this one.

Biggest failing prior to booking was the unavailability of parking at the hotel.

So now the negative is out of the way!!

After parking in Westgate a short walk finds

What is the highest standard or room please Can you request particular rooms? Thank you Keely
Sorry I dont know what the highest standard room is. I am pretty sure you can request a particular room depending on availability. Why dont you call or mail the Malmaison in Oxford directly?

We are hoping to stay here for our wedding anniversary (just one night) but I'm struggling to choose a room. We would like a more spacious room and a bed larger than a standard double, which rules out the cell rooms really. Like the look of the duplex suite but not sure if this lacks the character which is sort of the point of the hotel. Any tips?
Ask them they are very helpful

What’s the dress code for dinner please ?? X
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

does this hotel have a lift
Good evening, Yes we do have a lift, which access the majority of rooms. There are however some rooms which cannot be accessed, or have a few steps within the room, so please specify when booking. For your information, rooms in our Houses of Corrections are in a separate building so cannot be accessed by lift. I hope this helps - if you have any further questions please feel free to contact us directly. Kind regards, Kasey Watson

"We stayed in the Main wing"
"Park in Westgate Shopping Centre car park - much cheaper"
"Choose a cell room for the full experience of staying in the former prison"
"Ask in advance about stairs if not in main hotel and anything less than very fit"
"Book a package and upgrade at least to a cell room."
