    Central location for Woodstock.

    Trading on past laurels. Hotel looks tired and room/bathroom in need of redecorating. Poor restaurant service, in particular ignored a written request to cater for a gluten-free diet.

    Very good

    Tea making facilities and use of fridge to keep cakes or purchases to take home for friends. interesting decor and olde worlde charm of building. comfortable bed and chairs in room and good lighting for reading,nice location of hotel.room staff friendly and quickly attended to problems, hardly saw any other staff and could come and go at will.

    seemed pricey for the size of room, food was good but not much of it and again pricey, car parking was a bit challenging. Wardrobe was tiny, had loads of hangers but not much space for hanging due to safe and shelf unit inside the cupboard. Creaky stairs to room next door and noise from outside area both late and early, light on fire escape left on 24 hours and rather bright at night ... inability to open window more than a crack[I like fresh air]

    A warm welcome by experienced and knowledgeable staff who were attentive and helpful at all times. Excellent location in a lovely, thriving village. A quality hotel that met all expectations.

    The dinner menu was very good but a stay of any more than 2-3 nights would encourage me to seek to dine elsewhere. A change of menu on consecutive nights, perhaps over a week or 2 weeks would address this. However, the quality of the meals was excellent.

    The location is perfect and the rooms are wonderful. Lots of character and very friendly.

    The food room service - we have had this twice and both times it was awful. The restaurant food is lovely so I don't know what happens with the room service menu!

    Excellent location and very nice old hotel. Very charming and lots of charcter.

    I did not think that the food was up to the quality that it should have been. The Carpaccio was frozen!!! It also took over 30 mins for the desert to be served. But the staff were very attentive though The Full English breakfast made up for any issues the night before as it was excellent

    Superb

    The ambience of the surroundings, and character of the building with modern appliances.

    The "Restaurant Manager" at breakfast was not managing the staff, residents or service and was not the person one would expect to find in an up market English Country Coaching Inn.

    Fabulous

    Its location in the lovely village of Woodstock a few minutes walk away from Blenheim Palace.

    The price of breakfast at £17.50 per head is outrageous and the room having a fridge that did not work.

    Superb

    As most people will be going to Bleniem Palace the hotels location is top notch !!

    Origanally we had a room on the ground floor, but asked to be moved as the floor boards above made it impossible to sleep when other residence above were walking about ( 200yr old floor boards to blame ) Upgraded to 1st floor , all was good !!! Car parking a bit restrictive.
