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

We stayed at the Marlborough Arms at the August bank holiday weekend. It is an absolutely charming old building with parking to the rear. Our room was a deluxe double, large with king size bed and a modern bathroom (bath with shower over). The only slight negative is that it is a busy road through Woodstock and the traffic noise...

Firstly I should say that this is not the normal sort of place we'd book. I know a lot do, but we're not that keen on 'character' hotels - they're dust traps and I have asthma! But we were allocated Room 10 over the August Bank Holiday weekend and it was very good indeed. Extremely spacious room (in the eves),... More

We were looking for a nice place to stay with good access to Oxford. As usual we read all the reviews and decided to book two nights as it seemed a bit pricey. We were checked in by the gentleman who was very charming and helpful, he didn't introduce himself but I gather from other reviews that he is called... More

We found this place to be quite a surprise. The exterior of the building was not at all out of the ordinary for the area but the rooms were a total delight. Each room was tastefully decorated with its own character. All the furnishings and linens were new and top quality. The owners were approachable and helpful. The breakfast was... More
