Best Hotels in Oxford

Illustration of the Randolph Hotel, OxfordThe best business and leisure hotels in Oxford offer all the excellent facilities that guests have now come to expect in every city including spas, leisure clubs, business centres and fine dinning. Oxford's most famous hotels include the Randolph and Raymond Blanc's le Manoir but a new favourite has recently arrived on Oxford's luxury hotel scene, in the form of Mal Maison, Oxford Castle. This is a strange nomination for one of the best hotels in Oxford because it was formerly a prison, but it has been transformed in to an award winning luxury hotel maintaining many of the original features - worth a visit even if you dont stay there! Our recommended best hotels are listed below based on local knowledge and feedback, we hope you agree!


Photo of Mal Maison Oxford Castle
The Oxford Malmaison hotel is a truly spectacular boutique hotel which has won many awards. What makes this hotel so special is that it has been converted from a prison, but has managed to keep many of the unusual original features. Guests reside in the former cells of the prison, although as they are quite small three have been joined to make a larger room and ensuite bathroom.

There is also a central open plan cast iron walk way spanning several floors that was originally used for parades. The old prison is also famed for its use in a classic British comedy television series called porridge which was based at the former prison.

If you are looking for truely unique boutique hotel in Oxford this is the one for you. As boutique hotels go you dont get much more unusual than this. The whole prison complex surrounding the Malmaison hotel was redeveloped in 2006 and now the hotel is a centre piece to a leisure area that includes a number of pizza restaurants, bars and shops as well as the Oxford Unlocked visitor attraction. It is also a five minute walk to the city centre and railway and bus stations.

Cost
Le Manoir, is well what can we say, very expensive, but reputedly well worth it if you feel like spoiling yourself or your other half! To quote the great man himself "Le Manoir aux Quat Saisons is the fulfilment of a personal vision, a dream that one day I would create a hotel and restaurant in harmony where my guests would find perfection in food, comfort, service and welcome." Raymond Blanc
