English country innPosted Nov 14, 2015
Pros: Everything was good
Location: There is a palace one mile away you can tour and Oxford University is only 30 minutes by bus which you can pick up right up in front of the inn.
This place was out in the country, the staff was great and very friendly. The room was clean and very peaceful. The food was great. We had a great time!!

Hotel near to OxfordPosted Sep 19, 2015
Pros: The friendliness of the staff.
Cons: Our room needed decorating. The panels in the bathroom were tatty, but the management had it down to be done in the near future .
Location: Great location for Oxford , Woodstock, Blenheim Palace and the Cotswolds.
Staff were excellent and very friendly. The bathroom mainly, but also the bedroom, smelt of smoke. We told the manager who had it thoroughly cleaned . It was much better, but there was still a lingering smoky smell for non smokers. We had dinner on the first night, but it wasn't very tasty and not good value for money. The breakfasts, however, were a good start to the day and enjoyable.

Nice place, good price, great location for my needs. Bathroom was a little tired and could do with an update but it was clean and functional so can't complain too much as I've had much worse bathrooms in very expensive hotels. Food was good, staff polite. Only complain was my room was next to the stairs and the noise of a group of german tourists retiring to their room up the stairs after leaving the bar was very intrusive.

Ideal place to stay for Blenheim AND Oxford .Posted Aug 6, 2015
Pros: Close to Oxford, helpful staff.
Cons: Ask the staff how the shower works! It can be tricky.
Location: With Blenheim to see and walk or picnic -you can relax. Oxford has many tours and the Bodlean is well worth a visit
Great place to stay for Blenheim , Oxford and to explore the Cotswolds. Stagecoach Gold to Oxford stops right outside. The evening food is very good value and the breakfast is a range of cereals, yoghurt (if requested), a range of juices, full english with tea or coffee and so you are well set up for the day. The staff are both happy and helpful.

Duke of marlborough Hotel and Pub two night stay.Posted Aug 4, 2015 on Hotels
We were allocated room 102 at the back of the hotel which was good as we didn't get any road noise from the A44. Evening food good but expensive. Breakfast very good and service excellent. On the first day we found the bath tap dripping and there was no hot water for a bath or shower. Asked for it to be fixed , and it was the following morning, whilst we were out at Blenheim.

Nice and close to Blenheim Palace and OxfordPosted Aug 2, 2015
Pros: Very warm and comfortable
Cons: Bed mattress was quite worn and tub handles were difficult to use.
Location: Excellent location and great food and drinks inside.
Overall quite nice experience. But the smoke alarm went off on consecutive nights around midnight waking everyone up for no apparent reason.
