First time we stayed here, it was to visit our son who took a job at Long Trail Brewery (go there, awesome) in Bridgewater. Our room (109) was next to the ice room. When we walked in we were very surprised how tiny it was, but decorated so cute. We had only one little problem-other guests were walking into our... More

We love the town of Woodstock, and decided to spend an evening at The Shire, and we were very happy to do so. This is not your average "motel". The rooms are large and comfy, and the location is STUNNING. Would stay again.

Stayed here for one night. The room was good. A little bit dated, the furniture was a bit too large for the room. The bed was very comfortable with lovely white bedding. The bathroom was clean with good towels. There was a lovely view at the rear of the property overlooking the river. The chap at reception when we booked... More

After staying in many charming inns around New England I must say it was good to have a spacious room with 2 large and comfy beds. There is no breakfast at the hotel and it is not very easy to find a good place in the town. We ended buying things in the nice supermarket just across the road and... More

This was a cute little motel that we chose to stay at while attending a hockey tournament. It was solid it that it was clean, updated, and great location with walking to much of Woodstock. This was NOT full of frills, but staff was friendly. Good Wi-Fi access for work and projects. Only complaint that the beds were soft and... More

Stayed during Peak Week 2015, busy time but we received wonderful customer service. Adam and his staff were incredible to us despite our special needs. My husband is a disabled vet in a large power wheelchair. Their excellent service began when we arrived at 3:45 am, to find that the fire alarm was 'chirping'. I called the emergency number (front...

Having read previous reviews my expectations were probably too high. I expected a hotel and I got a motel. It is centrally situated close to shops and restaurants. The room was clean and comfortable. There are great views from the rear of the motel of the river and lots of geese. I wanted to take a photo of the view... More

Good location with ample free parking. We were accommodated in a large, ground floor room with views overlooking the river from your rocking chairs on the verandah. The room was very comfortable, spotlessly clean with all necessary amenities.Staff were very friendly and helpful, advising us on the best restaurants for dinner and breakfast. Woodstock is beautiful but we woke up... More

The beds were wonderful, as was the view from the back deck, we had Canadian geese to entertain us while sitting outside enjoying the view. Room was decorated and had great amenities. Located within walking distance of the downtown area. Definitely recommending

The Shire Woodstock was as quaint as the town. Service was excellent and the room was spotless. Location was ideal. The river view was serene and very lovely. I would highly recommend this establishment.
