We stayed for a weekend and found the hotel to be a perfect base for exploring Oxford. We left the car at home for a change as the hotel is a short walk from the train station and the city centre. We booked last minute so stayed in the Govenor's House and not in one of the cells in the main prison wing. This must be the first hotel we've stayed in which we wanted to tour and marvel at the skilled conversion. All the room facilities were of a high standard, quality teas and filter coffee, and excellent shower pressure. Bed was a little too firm for me but thick walls and heavy curtains meant a good nights sleep. Didn't try the breakfast, went to Maison Blanc instead! All in all have no hesitation in recommending this hotel - try book a cell if you can to add to the atmosphere!
- 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
