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.

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
