The rooms are homey but modern. With a trendy grocery store across the street, numerous acceptable restaurants in Woodstock and a relaxing river view with some rooms staying three days without ever having to get into your car would be no problem. It's a quiet hotel, so don't go there to party. With the less expensive rooms, some of the traffic noise from Route 4 is evident but not in a big way. Nice place...

I don't think I can gush enough about what a wonderful experience I had at the Shire. It is a small well priced motel, that does everything with grace. Just wonderful. The staff is polite and well trained, the rooms are clean and well appointed. A sweet little town, a sweet little Inn.

Room Tip: Find the coffee nook overlooking the river.

We stayed at the Shire Riverview to attend a wedding in the area. Our room was a king river view room on the back of the property. The room is beautifully decorated in traditional colonial style befitting the location in Woodstock, complete with fireplace and plenty of room to move about, as well as modern amenities like flat screen TV and wifi. The bathroom has been updated tastefully and had plenty of counter space to accommodate our needs. The best part was the balcony porch overlooking the river. We enjoyed sitting in the rocking chairs enjoying the view - we got to see a flock of geese take off in formation one morning. The location is great - easy walking distance to downtown Woodstock's shops, restaurants and charm. The Shire is a lovely place to stay - it is nice to find family run, independent inns like this! We have friends in the area, and if we can't stay with them, we would come back to the Shire!

The only reason I didn't give 5's all around is because the room and bathroom were relatively simple. That's not a problem as it was an excellent value. Lay down on the bed and watch the river and the fields and hills beyond. Walk out the door and in 7 minutes you've got half a dozen good restaurants to choose from. Lots of interesting tourist sites near by. The room was extraordinarily quiet. Be sure to visit the General Store in town - great selection of kitchen utensils. Actually, I Ioved my stay!

This motel had better stick around for good. We use it frequently for guests and have done so for about the last six years. It sits in the prettiest spot on the river and the rooms are large, clean and very comfortable. There is a supermarket across the street and a completely delicious café (Mon Vert) about three minutes' walk away- open for breakfast and lunch.

Stayed here for a weekend. The hotel is located along a river and has fantastic views, a large lawn witl large wooden chairs along the river shoreline, a balcony with a great view where free coffee is available. The rooms are nicely appointed, clean and cozy. The staff are friendly and helpful with advice about things to do in Woodstock. The gardens are fabulous. There's a market across the street that sells all kinds if great munches as well as wine. This is a great hotel with reasonable prices. 5 Stars
