Review of the Shire Woodstock The Shire is pricey, but is listed by Expedia as an “Excellent 4.7/5.0” Establishment. Having just spent 3 nights there I totally disagree! Some of my reasons follow: 1. Excellent 4.7/5.0 Establishments – Have well furnished rooms. Ours had two beds (as promised), a tiny night table (almost totally covered by the lamp and phone), a bureau, and two rocking chairs. That’s it; no table, no desk; no luggage rack. See figure 1. 2. Excellent 4.7/5.0 Establishments – Are safe. Our room was on the second floor. There is no elevator but two sets of stairs.

The second set of stairs is outside but had a hand rail so we used them. It rained while we were there so they got a little slippery. Wonder how they are in the snow? 3. Excellent 4.7/5.0 Establishments – Are well maintained and the fixtures are easily operated by the guests. We had two failures while we were there. The first was a clogged toilet that was quickly repaired by the desk clerk with a handy plunger (must happen quite often). The second was a light in the bathroom. It was repaired by someone while we were out of the room. When we returned the door was agar and there was no one there. (You did have to use considerable force to close them.) 4. Excellent 4.7/5.0 Establishments – Have alert staffs. When we m

Check in was a breeze and the room was very charming. The bed was super comfortable with nice linens. We loved the whole look of the room. The only downside was the noise at 6am from the room above. You could hear every footstep! Request a top floor room and your stay should be perfect!
