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

I would phone and spark to them. We did it online and paid for a junior suite and the one we got did not look like the photos.

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?
