First visit to Malmaison - met all expectations. Didn't use restaurant because there are lots of places to eat in The Mailbox (complex behind the hotel). You need to book to eat in on Fri/Sat - always packed!
We went for the German Christmas Market in New Street which was great fun and just like the real thing - it is only a five minute walk and the Bull Ring no more than 10 mins or so.
BUT DO NOT PARK WHERE THEY SUGGEST! - it is £17ish per day (as it's below Harvey Nics). If you are arriving from the west, use The Red Cage carpark on the left just before the Mailbox on your right. It is just the other side of the fly-over in front of the hotel and is only £10.50 a day (with a sign saying the council plan to drop charges to £8.50!) It's also a lot cheaper than the ones near the bull ring - £9 for 4-6 hours.
We also took a trip out to the Jewellery Quarter and picked up a couple of pieces at really good prices. There are no up market cafes (apparently the best is next to the museum - interesting tour - but it closed on Oct 31 for a refurb) but the one just behind the Tourist Info is a lot better than it looks. It's no frills but quick and friendly and charges £3.00 for full brekky, toast and tea!
