Lovely historic hotel close to Blenheim Palace

Posted Apr 19, 2017
Pros: The friendliness of the staff and the peacefulness of the room. The roaring fire on a cold, chilly evening was very welcoming.
Location: Very close to Blenheim Palace and Oxford Park and Rise (Peartree)
We drove into the lovely courtyard carpark to see a beautiful Wisteria in bloom. Elena greeted us with a smile at the reception where she booked us in and took us to our very comfortable room. The hotel was very quiet overnight, just what we needed after our journey and woke refreshed in time to enjoy a brilliant breakfast, cooked to perfection, thank you.

Charming and historic hotel near Oxford

Posted Sep 17, 2016 on Hotels
The hotel is in the center of Woodstock, with ample free car parking behind the hotel. Was made to feel very welcome. The hotel is very historic and has a lot of charm and ambiance. Very attractive lounge areas and outside courtyard. The room was small but well appointed. The room was situated facing the main street, but the noise levels were fine, even with having the windows open. Breakfast was excellent in quality and in the availability of healthy choices. I loved the convenience of the hotel. The town is a joy to walk around, and there are numerous restaurants and pubs. Blenheim Palace is stunning. After I checked out, I drove to the local park and ride facility in nearby Kidlington, and caught a bus into Oxford. This beats driving in and trying to find parking in town. Buses were very frequent until 8pm, then every half hour.

Historic charm near Blenheim Palace

Posted Apr 25, 2016
Pros: Location, charm, breakfast and friendly staff.
Location: Blenheim Palace is a 15 minute walk from the hotel.
Accommodating staff offered a choice of rooms, one with early check-in option. Cozy and clean room with very comfortable bed. Centrally located in Woodstock at a bus stop for buses coming from Oxford or Chipping Norton. A variety of local and delicious dining options are within walking distance as is the stunning UNESCO World Heritage Site of Blenheim Palace. Full English Breakfast was included in room rate and could not have been better.

A bit special.

Posted Feb 6, 2016 on Hotels
First time visit to this accommodation. Very pleased. Room was good size, larger available. Loved the building and felt obliged to read up more about the history. Main lasting impression was the personal service from the owners/staff at breakfast. Will definitely return when working in Oxford.

Centre of historic town

Posted Dec 26, 2015
Pros: See above
Location: See above
A lovely clean and comfortable hotel. Excellent breakfast. Very good facilities although our room was on the small side. The hotel is very well positioned on the main Woodstock Road a few feet from bus stops to Oxford etc. All the pubs and brasseries are a minute or two's walk away and Blenheim Palace about five minutes' walk. The only difficulty for some people would be the lack of a lift (it's a centuries-old building) but the staff will take your bags if necessary.

won't be back any more

We went to there about 6:00pm, the reception spent near 1 hour to find out our rooms. The bed was not comfortable and the wi-fi always disconnected. not worth it

Good hotel room/service but noisy facing main road

Posted Oct 17, 2015 on Hotels
Well located hotel for visit to Bleinheim Palace. Nice spacious room with modern bathroom. Good service and friendly staff. Good breakfast. The only issue is that we got a room facing the road and the traffic noises through the night and very early morning did not allow us to sleep well nor adequately. If we had been given a courtyard or back room facing the carpark I think it will be ok as I suspect it's quieter. But of course you can never know which room you are getting till after you check in and that's the challenge.

Relaxing Comfortable and Quiet Hotel.

Posted Oct 6, 2015
Pros: We liked the quietness and found our stay very relaxing. The breakfast was exceptionally good. The staff very friendly.
Cons: We didn't find anything to criticise.
Location: Woodstock is a small market town and has a small local museum and a regimental museum. It is convenient for Oxford and the Cotswolds.
We chose this hotel when we had difficulty booking a five night stay in Oxford at short notice and didn't regret it. We received a warm welcome from the proprietors and staff and nothing was too much trouble during our stay. The room was comfortable, clean and fully serviced each day. Full English Breakfast was served and cooked according to the personal preferences of each guest. The hotel is not open to non residents and does not do meals other than breakfast, It is, in effect, an up-market B&B. There is a bar and a lounge available to residents during the evening if they require it. There were over a dozen inns, restaurants and hotels in Woodstock all within a couple of minutes walk, all with good reviews. The entrance to Blenheim Palace is a 10 minute walk from the hotel. We came by train to Oxford but the hotel also has its own car park at the rear. The bus to Oxford runs every 20 to 30 minutes and takes about 40 minutes.
