About Malmaison Oxford, Oxford

Quirky hotel with a brasserie in a former medieval castle

Oxford Castle Quarter

Located within a converted prison in a medieval castle, Malmaison Oxford puts you in one of Oxford’s oldest and trendiest areas. You’ll find the bustling Covered Market, the Modern Art Oxford gallery, and Christ Church College within a 5-minute walk.

Crypts and curios

You can take a guided tour of the castle and climb St. George’s Tower or descend into the dark, 900-year-old crypt. Within a 15-minute walk, you can browse curios at the Pitt Rivers Museum or drawings by da Vinci at the Ashmolean, the world's first university museum.

Unique dining

You can dig into a Malburger or go for a blackboard special at the Brasserie, which features converted prison-cell dining rooms. At the neon-lit Malbar you’ll find coffee by day and cocktails by night, plus you’ll have access to limited parking and laundry services.

Medieval and modern

While you can experience the hotel’s peculiar past by staying in renovated prison cells, you can expect a comfortable stay. All 95 mood-lit rooms and suites feature free WiFi and tea and coffee facilities, plus high-power showers and flat-screen LCD TVs.

Unique Experience - Highly recommended
We really annoyed Malmaison Oxford. It was well located even for the bus station for our day trip to Blenheim on our second day. A very unique and comfortable hotel.

Loved our night in jail
We were so pleased with the location, next to the Oxford Castle, in the heart of town. So much to see and do. The hotel itself is beautifully renovated inside the old jail, a fascinating place with great spots for food and drink

Amazing hotel! The staff and room were excellent. We stayed here and at the Randolph Hotel close by. Malmaison is much better in every way! The staff helped make the stay memorable. Try the breakfast. We'll definitely be back !
