Is advertised as a "luxury" bed and breakfast, however I struggle to see where the luxury comes into it. A pleasant enough B&B but nothing out of the ordinary. The room was clean but looked tired. The shower was of the "run around to get wet" variety. Upside was it was very quiet so a good, undisturbed night's sleep was... More

This is a first class B&B establishment with convenient links to Oxford and the surrounding Cotswolds as well as being located in an interesting village with a colourful past. Very conveniently positioned within walking distance of Blenheim Palace. Highly recommended. Many thanks.

We had a great stay here for my birthday. Comfortable bed in a lovely big room. Right on the street but not noisey. I left some clothes in the wardrobe and the owners kindly sent them back to me! Sorry and thank you x x Great recommendation for dinner at an Italian restaurant which was fab! Highly recommend for a... More

This hotel is ideal for visiting Blenheim Palace - it is just a short walk away at the end of the village! The Marlborough Arms really does live up to its brand as a 'luxury B&B'. The rooms are large with excellent bathrooms and comfortable beds - though because of the age of the place expect a few groans from... More

Picked the Marlborough Arms after reading previous reviews and wasnt disappointed. In fact after turning up in the dark after a day in Oxford it was like an oasis. The owner was waiting for us and showed us to room 3 which was a large room and was beautifully furnished. After 3 recommendations for good eating places we went for... More

We have just spent two nights at the Marlborough Arms in Woodstock which we thoroughly enjoyed. The building is atmospheric, historic and really beautiful. We received a warm welcome and the owners were very helpful. The rooms were well furnish and very comfortable. The location of the Marlborough Arms is excellent as it is in the centre of Woodstock and... More

My boyfriend and I stayed in the Marlborough Arms for 2 nights the weekend before Christmas to attend a wedding in Woodstock. We had a warm reception from the owners and B&B was full of character and charm. We stayed in Room 7 and although the bathroom was a tad dated, and didn't have a shower, the bed was incredibly...

A quite tastefully done bed and breakfast, I stayed here roughly ten years ago. I stay in Woodstock quite a lot on business and I have done most of the Hotels here over the years. The Marlborough Arms is such a different place from ten years ago. The new owners have tastefully refurbished the place. I don't think that I... More

We stayed here for two nights that had been booked for us by friends as a wedding gift. We have stayed at Woodstock many times before but never here. We were greeted warmly and shown to our room (no 10) which was lovely. Clean and spacious with a superking bed that has to be the most comfortable bed we have... More

My wife and I decided on a very last minute break away from the kids (thanks Grandma!) and stayed at the Marlborough Arms for a couple of nights midweek. The welcome was warm, and the location perfect in the small town of Woodstock. Food was a highlight of the stay - great breakfast in the Marlborough Arms, and a good... More
