            A unique and fabulous hotel”
            By far the best place I have ever stayed. The quirkiness of the converted prison gave this hotel a great setting. It has been done out to luxurious standards throughout and the staff were efficient and friendly. The location is brilliant.

            Window of opportunity”
            Very friendly and helpful staff, clean rooms, great location in the centre of the city. Unfortunately the design of the rooms means there’s tiny windows that you cannot open - making it feel quite claustrophobic. Also, we spent a considerable time trying to get cool water in the shower - it was either scorching hot or very cold. I also feel there was a missed opportunity to play more on the prison theme - in a fun way. Finally, we could smell the drains while sat at the bar.

            Fantastic accomodations!”
            We were in the newer section of rooms above the restaurants. Our room was big, brand new and wonderful! We had two rooms actually- both fantastic! The history of the hotel added to our experience. It is well located, but also a few steps away from the more crowded areas of Oxford. We would definitely come back!

            Not advisable for summer”
            The hotel is wonderfully designed and renovated. Just like most of the hotels in UK, there is no air condition. But what is even worse is the windows cannot be open, making the rooms very stuffy. Even though the furnishings are done with excellent taste, we cannot enjoy being in the room. You just feel like escaping ASAP.

            Interesting hotel with its history of being the old jail! Beautifully converted. I stayed in what had been three cells knocked through into one en-suite double room. Very comfortable and clean. Excellent staff. Parking extra but worth it as Oxford difficult to park in. The location is great. I thought the hotel was expensive but probably for the area represents reasonable value. Breakfast was extra - nearly £20 for the cooked - I ate both breakfast and dinner the night before in the Brasserie. Food was fine and the staff attentive and helpful. If you didn't want to eat in the hotel there are plenty of restaurants, bars and cafes within in easy walking distance. I would recommend this hotel.

            We came to Oxford after our shopping in Bicester Village. It's about 5-7min walk away from the Oxford City Center bus station. A lot of shops nearby. The hotel is right next to the Oxford Castle, and itself is also a prison heritage. Reasonable pricing.

            Brilliant location within walking distance to bars, restaurants & shops. Beautiful hotel set in an old prison keeping some of the characteristics of a prison. Our bedroom was beautiful, maybe a little bit cramped but not a problem but the bathroom could have done with a bit of updating both the shower & sink had chips/cracks in them. We had 3 rooms booked & it was only the room I was in had the issue with the bathroom, the 2 were fine. Would love to visit this hotel again but it is a little on the pricey side, so would need to save up!

            Very successful conversion of an old victorian prison. Great, well trained staff, and comfortable rooms with excellent beds. Good breakfast. Fabulous location very close to the centre and the new Westgate development. Best aware parking is extra - £26/night.

            As you approach the former prison you know you're in for a treat. You are greeted warmly, the rooms are spotless and have everything you may need during your stay. And breakfast was delicious. I chose eggs Benedict from the extensive menu. In fact the complete opposite to how the first 'guests' experienced their stay I suspect. There is one cell kept in its original condition...Must say I prefer the rooms as they are now lol. It was my first stay at the hotel but I would highly recommend and can't wait for my next visit to Oxford and the Malmaison.
