I have stayed a number of times at the Malmaison in Reading and it was my first visit to the Oxford for my wedding anniversary and i was not disappointed
the reception staff were very good and we could check in straight away.
We had booked a Sunday stopover which is great value and we had a standard room.
This was a nice room but unfortunately you cannot open any windows and the air conditioning did not work but they would very good and moved us to a room which used to be one of the old cells in the main block which i would recommend although you still cannot open the windows so did get stuffy.
Another thing i noticed is that the toiletries was not replaced on a daily basis
The restaurant overall was very good and the food was of good quality but the first night we were there the service was slow but being Easter Sunday i think they were struggling with staff but the next night was better.
The hotel is in a ideal location and there is a Prezzo just outside and a fab little cocktail bar just outside and also just round the corner to a square which has quite a few restaurants around it and near the shops.
ideal to go by train as the parking is about £25.00 per night and it is only about a 10 mins walk away.
I would recommend and will be back
