This was our second visit to The Marlborough Arms and if anything it was even better than the first. Friendly staff, lovely room and in an excellent location in the centre of Woodstock. Parking is in a secure car park at the rear of the property. You really feel that nothing is too much trouble and the staff go out... More

We booked this thinking it was a hotel. A little disappointed when we arrived, expecting a nice reception and warm welcome. In fact at 1400 the front door was closed and the reception is just a desk. On the plus side our room (2) was lovely very comfortable large bed, walk in shower and view out to main street. Nice... More

This hotel was perfect for our three day trip to visit family and have quiet time. The room was spacious, airy and the bed comfortable. The staff (Abi and Samantha were extremely helpful and friendly.) Although on a Main Street, the rooms were the unite due to double paned glass. The wi-fi delightfully fast. The only minor discomfort were that... More

We stayed for one night to break up our journey from visiting friends in Andover. We were so pleased that we did. The owners were charming, friendly and couldn't have been more helpful. Our room was lovely with a comfortable king-size bed and the breakfast was first class. Wished we could have stayed longer. Will definitely return.

We spent the weekend in the Cotswolds and chose the Marlborough Arms because it's close to Blenheim Palace. The B&B is situated on (what seems like) a main road, but you don't hear any noise at all from the inside. Our rooms were clean, the beds extremely comfortable and the breakfast was delicious and made to order. I have to... More

I have stayed at the Marlborough Arms, every other month for four days for work, for a year and I absolutely love it. The rooms are beautiful, the beds are extremely comfortable, the breakfast is spot on and the owners, Sally and Alistair are extremely accommodating and lovely people. I have now changed jobs and no longer need to work... More

We stayed here just for 1 night and we enjoyed it. The room was pretty large for a b&b and also the bed was really comfortable!!! Had a great nights sleep after a freezing cold walk around oxford. Even better though was the breakfast - great proper full English ... And cereals and juices, etc, if you wanted that too.... More

We had an fab night at the MA, me my partner and 18month old son. It is the perfect location for exploring the cottswolds, and less than 5 mins from blenheim palace. The owners cant do enough for you, service - fantastic, room - fantastic, - breakfast - fantastic, setting - fantastic. We will be back, and we are fussy!

Had a one night stay here on business, I was met by a very helpful and polite lady. Very impressive building steeped in history in a very english village. Would definitely like to return with my wife and visit Blenheim Palace. The only downsides were the shower which had little or no pressure and the road noise.
