We were visiting Woodstock for the first time primarily to visit Blenheim Palace and could not have chosen a more suitable hotel. The fact that the hotel had a more than adequate car park meant that we did not have to worry about the very restricted parking in Woodstock. The hotel was charming, having retained many of the original features... More

Visit to Woodstock for a study tour organised by the Plunkett Foundation Friendly service from all staff. Clean, warm and comfortable room. My visit included Breakfast with so much choice on offer both on the menu and the Buffet. Excellent facilities provided for all delegates at the seminar. I wish my stay could have been longer, then I could have... More

This is the fourth time I have stayed at this hotel and once again the standard of service, room, food and helpful staff was of the highest order. We had a room in the courtyard (number 24) which had everything we wanted. If I had to criticise anything it was the noise of the boiler system switching on in the... More

We chose this hotel as a mid way stop for a long journey, on arrival the staff were helpful and obviously customer orientated which made us feel very welcome. We had booked to dine at 7.45 but were asked to the table much earlier while still enjoying our bar drinks when we did get to the dinning room less than... More

Had a weekend break recently on the McDonalds winter offer which is very good value for money, brilliant room and nice gift left for my wife's birthday. Room in the courtyard was really nice and well furnished. Took advantage of the advance rate for a 3 course dinner which was very good. One gripe was having to pay £5 for... More

Very pleased as the hotel was very welcoming to dogs, even left a bed and blanket in the room for them. The room was warm and clean and staff polite and helpful. Would definitely use again and recommend as perfect location for Blenheim and Cotswolds.

Stayed mid week 2 nights, comfortable, if compact room, proved to be very quiet at night, no issues at all. Dining throughout was very good, fillet steak proved to be exceptional. Service throughout fully met our expectations, friendly, polite and efficient. No trouble parking although car park does fill up. Woodstock itself is attractive, if you like a real ale... More

We wanted to celebrate a special birthday and we did it in style. The staff were very helpful and attentive and the food was superb. A fine old building brings its own challenges but the slight snags were dealt with promptly and efficiently.
