Malmaison Oxford

It's autumn break/holiday and I have to whole week off. DH had some free days and so did Quilting DD and her dear BF. What better thing to do than get in the car and drive to Oxford UK???
See for ourselves how baking DD is doing over there ánd see the Malmaison Hotel . Is it really as great as Baking DD tells us? Her hotel stories are always very enthousiastic...

We got of at a rocky start. On Friday, the day before we were supposed to leave, Expedia called and told us the hotel, we planned to stay the first night , was overbooked. Luckily Quilting DD managed to find something else.
Saturday we drove off very early to Calais to take the ferry to Dover. A bit of a rocky crossing but finally: the white Cliffs of Dover appeared.
 Notice that square blue miniature car? That's us :)
First we checked in, at the last minute motel en by bus (yep, a red double one)we drove to the city centre.
walked to the Malmaison, found DD and gave her a big imissedyou hug.

We were offered coffee/tea and Baking DD was told to go with us and "take your time" How nice!
Before returning to her duties, she showed us around. DH took pics and even captured a ghost on camera. Whooooo....More later!!
