My husband and I recently stayed at the Shire for five nights and I was once again very pleased with the experience here. I had stayed here several times in the past while traveling on business through the years and this property has remained SUPER CLEAN, comfortable, and nicely appointed. The gardens are beautiful, too! Owners are very friendly and... More

MY wife and I stayed ah the Shire Riverview Motel in Woodstock recently. The room was an excellent value for the area. It was very clean and comfortable and the refrigerator was a nice addition (kept the wine and water ice cold). The staff was very friendly and the place is very motocycle friendly - you can park right outside... More

A commfortable place to stay. We had a room on the first floor with a view on the river. It was very clean. A few minutes walk to downtown, an accomodation in front of the motel. Coffee in the mornig on the second floor and chairs and tables on the patio. Staff very helpfull. And the price is the best.

I really like this motel! It's an easy walk to downtown Woodstock. It is also reasonably priced. My river view room was very comfortable and clean, although the rug showed some water damage. The owners and staff are welcoming and helpful.

We enjoyed the Shire Riverview - we stayed two days. Our room had a rear door that opened onto a nice deck overlooking the river. However, getting the door to lock was, we later learned, tricky. We did not practice good travel security and think someone entered through the back door and took some cash from my wife's purse. No... More

This is a very cute motel with views of the river from the rooms. It was quiet and comfortable and walking distance from the very charming town....about a ten minute walk. The only flaws were not having a coffee pot in the room...had to go to their coffee area...and no breakfast or elevator. Other than that it was just fine.

The staff I talkied to on the phone ahead of time were very helpful in answering questions I had about the area. When we arrived, we... More

We spent one night here last Friday. The room was large and had sliding glass doors leading out to a deck area where we could sit and enjoy the river. Bed was comfy and cozy and everything was neat a clean. Town is just a short walk from the hotel so you can park your car and walk to the... More

I came here as a child 45 years ago, and it was your standard motel. Now it has been totally redone and is luxurious. Lots of pillows, great TV and Wifi and super comfortable beds. And to relax, there are old wooden rocking chairs outside every room. We ended up spending two nights when we only intended to stay one.
