We stayed in the 2 bedroom suite. It was a reasonable price and had a beautiful view. However, it was not cleaned well. The floors had not been vacuumed or swept/mopped. The dining room table had food stuck on it as did the microwave. The front of the cabinets were all dirty. The dishwasher was broken and filled with dishes from the previous guests! Because of this I would not recommend or stay here again.

Me girlfriend and I stayed at the Shire on Valentines weekend. The room itself was ok, but I believe COVID has become a good excuse for poor service. We arrived after 8pm, so the office was closed. That would have been ok if we had any soap in our room. So, I had to go out in the 0 deg weather to get some. The next morning, the only coffee machine (and I use the term loosely) in the place was broken. So, I again had to go out in the 0 deg weather to get some. I would think for $200 plus tax per night they could buy a nice one. It wasn’t fixed even on day 3. And I know that hotels don’t clean rooms anymore, but the “common” area had Doritos on the floor for 2 days. Not romantic, and definitely not clean. Spend a little more and go elsewhere.

Great price for the area, and only a 5 min walk to the town of Woodstock. Beautiful views of the river. Woodstock had so many great stores and restaurants, and it was close to several other area activities. Can't wait to come back!

My wife and I have been a guest here before, this trip, it was like seeing family. We love it here, friendly staff, clean rooms, comfortable beds. Awesome views. You could not ask for a better motorcycle ride, great roads through small beautiful towns with so much to see. The hotel is located with in walking distance to the town. Many interesting places to eat and relax. We will return in the spring!

My husband and I decided to return to the The Shire in Woodstock Vt. So glad we did! Being older ourselves it was so good to see the staff taking all precautions and making sure our rooms were safe and clean. The area is so beautiful, and the town is walking distance from the hotel. Friendly faces and clean comfortable rooms, what more could you ask for. We will be back in December.
