For 2 years I worked at Malmaison Oxford. It was my home, my colleagues were like family, my managers were excellent. Long hours hard work, good pay. It’s not a job for everyone, be prepared for long working hours, but I made some lifetime friends, learnt loads about food, drink, service and we had good staff parties too. The only thing that was annoying was the new GM. Made the place feel a lot more like a prison.
