My husband and I stayed for 2 nights at Pollen B&B and really enjoyed our stay. Martha, our host was very pleasant and accommodating and cooked an excellent English breakfast. Our top floorroom was comfortable, with a nice view out over rooftops. A bit of a climb up the stairs but not a problem. Our only difficulty was finding the... More

Stayed there for a single night. Martha, the host who is actually the manager of this B and B was very friendly and discreet. The top floor room we stayed showed signs of wear and tear but airy and functional. The breakfast was very good and cooked in front of us. She bothered to adapt the English Breakfast for my... More

Quite quirky rooms - we moved from the smaller, Muddle, to the flat so saw both. 4 poster beds in both rooms. Breakfast good but asked what we wanted the night before. The flat is very large with 2 single beds and a double in separated room. Baths in both rooms.

This is a quaint and somewhat exotic B&B furnished in a very eclectic style by its American owner. Situated in a Georgian/ Tudor building over a flower shop in the high street, our room consisted of two rooms, one of which contained the modern bathroom. It was furnished with a mixture of English and Indian object d'art. There was stuff... More

I spent 6 nights at Pollen B and B with my wife and mother-in-law and we found it very cosy and friendly. We were in the "family room" at the second floor, with two beds (and a couch -- the suite would accommodate a family with several children equally well). We faced the street, but the town is quiet and... More

Amazing place that stay. Fits in nicely with the old feel of the historic town. The owner takes every opportunity to make you feel at home to the point where it no longer feels like a hotel. If you are looking for a place to stay that is friendly and hospitable then The Pollen is the place for you!

You couldn't wish for a more helpful and welcoming hostess. The rooms are quirky, fun, comfortable and clean. Breakfast is hot and fresh. Very good value. Parking is on the street which can be difficult for an overnight stay in Woodstock

Why spend a fortune staying at a Glitzy hotel when you can stay at this very reasonably priced B &B in the centre of Woodstock. It is very comfortable , clean and with one of Martha's English Breakfasts, you will not need to eat again for hours. Much has been said about the quirkiness of the rooms - we stayed... More

We are 5 and were looking for accommodation in the area for a cycle ride down the canal to Oxford and this seemed one of the only options. We stayed in the "Flat" which Martha supported our needs with 3 single beds with more than adequate room for baggage, seating etc. My wife and I had a separate room off... More
