After two stays at the Marlbrough Arms I can recommend it wholeheartedly. It is large as B & B's go - with 10 rooms - but the owners are very much in charge and extremely welcoming and hospitable. Room 10 is very quirky and characterful but by all accounts the other rooms are charming too. The cooked breakfast was excellent... More

We stayed at the Marlbourgh Arms this winter in the beautiful surroundings of Woodstock and within walking distance of Blenheim Palace. The BnB was absolutely perfect, with a Christmas tree and roaring log-fire to greet us on our arrival. We would really recommend Room 10 – initially we’d been allocated room 5, which was also lovely and well decorated, but... More

The Marlborough Arms offers excellent accommodation in large tastefully decorated and comfortable rooms, which mix old and modern décor very successfully. The whole building oozes with character and charm, and includes some beautiful period features. The rooms are spotlessly clean as is the breakfast room. The proprietors make you most welcome and are extremely friendly and helpful.

We stayed last night at The Marlborough Arms in Woodstock. It was absolutely lovely. An old inn which has been beautifully and sympathetically refurbished. The owners were charming, friendly and very helpful. The room was delightful, spotlessly clean, very comfortable and quiet - even at the front of the hotel. Breakfast was fabulous and the whole environment was relaxing, welcoming,... More

We found the village by accident after a trip to Oxford. A beautiful town with amazing places to eat. We walked into the Marlborough Arms and was greeted by a very friendly receptionist. She showed us our room which was possibly the largest I have ever stayed in. It was very clean beautifully decorated and the hot bath was very... More

What a lovely,charming comfortable, romantic hotel. We were in room 2 which is a large comfortable, adequately appointed bedroom. The bed was absolutely huge and very comfortable. Just pretty perfect to be honest. The outlook onto the street was attractive with small shops opposite. The proprietors are charming. Breakfast was tasty, and served in a very attractive breakfast room. Just... More

We had one night at the Marlborough Arms and were enchanted by it. The building itself is really interesting, with parts of it many centuries old. Our room was on the top floor and was excellent - a large bedroom/sitting room, with comfy bed and sofas, and a seperate bathroom, complete with rolltop bath. Everything was spotlessly clean, and we... More

Lovely warm welcome and beautiful character. Woodstock so worth a visit and fab food at The Kings Arms just over the road. Very comfortable bed and spacious bedroom with Victorian bath and separate shower. Highly recommended.

We had an event at Blenheim Palace and booked 8 rooms at this hotel so we pretty much took over the place! Everything about the hotel was absolutely top class. Both the building and courtyard are stunning, the décor is beautiful but is also very homely and welcoming. A lot of hotels scrimp on bedroom furniture and linen. This hotel... More
