This is one of the most expensive hotels I have stayed in, yet it was average in terms of service. A great idea & stunning conversion of this former prison (only closed in 1996). However not without its problems. The air con is on 24/7 as there's are no opening windows. If you like fresh air when you sleep then forget this hotel. Also our air con temperature control did not change anything! It was a continuous stream of cold air. The drench shower was more a trickle shower. The flow was pathetic. The lighting is all wrong in the rooms. The only place you could see your face properly was in the bathroom but the 2 lights either side of the mirror gave off too much glare so you could not see properly. We paid £430 for 2 nights room only! I have stayed in many hotels at half this price that were far better equipped and generally a nicer place to be. They did knock 10% off the bill when we mentioned the shower and air con which was a kind gesture.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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
