Hotel is in the center of Woodstock, with private parking in the rear, which is good because parking on the streets would be difficult to find. It is a historic seventeeth century coaching inn. The hotel is a bit of a rabbit warren, with sections added over the years. I stayed on the top floor and I managed to get... More

After parking at the free on-site carpark, we were warmly greeted at reception. Local places, pubs and walks were recommended to us, which was of a lot of use as we were unsure of the area and wanted to make the most of it during our 1 night stay. The location of the hotel was perfect as it's right in... More

Didn't do it for me, I didn't like the room. It was cold(ish) in the evening and you could tell it was going to be a sweaty night in there as it was humid. The extra thick duvet that was suitable for a night out with the Inuit was too much and didn't help. Breakfast service was good, very polite,... More

We spent a couple of nights at the Marlborough Arms and I have to say Sallie is the perfect hotelier. We arrived early (way before check-in time), had a sick child, and then left something behind in the hotel (which she mailed to us in London) and she helped us with all of that! She was wonderful. Additionally, the room... More

Set right in the heart of the charming village of Woodstock, the Marlborough Arms delighted us immediately upon arrival. Described as an hotel offering just bed and breakfast, we were surprised by the very elegant and spacious reception area and by the very friendly but sophisticated member of staff who greeted us. Our surprise deepened when we were ushered to... More

Me and my friend decided to go and visit Oxford for a few days. We found this little gem outside Oxford in the quaint village of Woodstock and it is beautiful!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Marlborough Arms is a beautiful 15th century coaching inn, situated in the heart of Woodstock, overlooking historical streets and offers Bed and Breakfast. Whilst guests can enjoy the tranquillity of the surroundings they still have good links to the M40. The hotel has been elegantly finished in a classic style in-keeping with the character of the building and surrounding area, with contemporary touches throughout. Guests can also take advantage of the inn's own car park located directly behind the property.Each of the thirteen luxurious en-suite bedrooms are all individually themed with a focus on comfort and relaxation. All rooms differ in shape, size and style, ranging from the Cobalt Room, which is situated overlooking the courtyard which has a contemporary feel with beautiful sensuous fabrics and natural morning light, through to the Sepia Room, which is a very large room with a striking interior of deep greys and gentle soft tones, set off with modern lamps and cushions. All of the rooms have flat screen televisions, tea and coffee making facilities, hairdriers, irons and ironing boards. Some have baths, some large walk-in showers and some rooms are equipped with both! ... more   less
