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

Following a mix-up in bookings in another hotel in Woodstock, Alistair (owner) kindly offered a room at the Marlborough Arms. The Marlborough Arms is a good central place to stay in Woodstock, nicely furnished and very hospitable

We stayed for one night attending a wedding at Blenheim Palace having booked the Feathers and being let down on a burst pipe (The Feather did give us a hamper to apologise to be fair). We were actually very lucky as the room was very clean and spacious and the bed extremely comfortable. The photos on here do not do... More

Stayed here whilst exhibiting at the Blenheim Flower Show. Our hosts were fantastic and couldn't have been more helpful from advising us of great places for dinner to helping store a most annoying trolly! Please ignore any previous negativity, I assure you it's unjustified. Thank you for a lovely stay, keep up the good work :) Mossart

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Marlborough Arms is a beautiful 14th century coaching inn, situated in the heart of Woodstock, overlooking historical streets. Whilst guests can enjoy the tranquillity of the surroundings they still have good links to the M40. The hotel has been elegantly finished in a classic style in-keeping with the character of the building and surrounding area, with contemporary touches throughout. Guests can also take advantage of the inn's own car park located directly behind the property.Each of the ten luxurious en-suite bedrooms are all individually themed with a focus on comfort and relaxation. All rooms differ in shape, size and style, ranging from the Cobalt Room, which is situated overlooking the courtyard which has a contemporary feel with beautiful sensuous fabrics and natural morning light, through to the Sepia Room, which is a very large room with a striking interior of deep greys and gentle soft tones, set off with modern lamps and cushions. All of the rooms have dimmer controlled lighting, flat screen television, tea and coffee making facilities. Along with a bath or large walk in shower, some rooms are equipped with both! ... more   less
