Recent guest reviews

We had a wonderful stay in this cosy B&B with vintage interior and lovely staff. Me and my parents stayed in a two-bedroom appartment with shared bathroom and it was everything we were looking for: cosy, clean and typically English. The breakfast was good and the woman who showed us to our rooms also gave us great recommondations to eat in town. We will certainly be returning.

We stayed here for a couple of nights using a secret escapes deal. Thoroughly enjoyed it, staff great, breakfast nice and bedroom very comfortable. This is a very old hotel with tons of character, they don't serve evening meals but this is not a problem as there are so many good pubs and restaurants nearby.

Stayed here for 1 night. Arrived early but were given our room key.. Very helpful staff... guiding us 're a walk and where to go. Excellent afternoon tea and prosecco.. Very good night's sleep.. comfy bed. Rooms are lovely and bathroom/shower perfect. Breakfast was excellent... everything you ever need on offer. Excellent service. Very friendly and welcoming... Definitely stay there again...

I went there after a society meeting and it was packed! There was a nice atmosphere but I couldn’t hear my friends talking, I was also in a wheelchair and I couldn’t get in so my friends had to lift the chair in and I parked it in the corner and walked. Apart from this I enjoyed my time here

My wife and I stayed at The Marlborough Arms for two nights from 19th November. We had room 2, which overlooked to front of the hotel. The room was very well appointed and for a standard double it was very comfortable. The staff could not have been more helpful and friendly. The lounge was very warm and welcoming with a lovely log fire. The breakfast was first class with a varied choice. I would recommend this hotel if you intend to visit Blenheim and the surrounding area. Whilst they do not serve evening meals there is an abundance of eateries in Woodstock. I will certainly use this hotel again when I am in the area.

This place is exactly what you want for a weekend visiting the area, it’s cosy and convenient located right in the centre of Woodstock making it walking distance to Blenheim. They also give you a Bicester Village VIP card voucher which is worth using if you plan on going for a shop. The hotel comes with parking, a lovely breakfast with plenty of choice but the best thing is the staff. They are very friendly and helpful and really make your stay. Rooms are also very spacious. Would definitely stay again.

This Hotel really must be classed as a B&B as there is a small bar and no restaurant for dinner. The rooms were the superior ones and were very spacious.and large. Very good breakfast served 8.00 - 10.00am with a good choice to go. I will stay at this property again.

Old Coaching Inn from the 17th Century. Place in really good order , We had a lovely room looking out over the front .Really big bed and slept well . Large room as well and bathroom fitted out well . Staff really friendly and will tell you where to go and eat ( even have 10% discount off some of the local restaurants ) . I fully recommend the breakfast in the morning - looks good and tastes even better . In short you will not go wrong staying here

Excellent service. We were originally on the modern extension but after my wife explained we were really looking forward to staying in the old section they moved us to a nice old room. There are also some nice nooks in the main section for evening drinks or just reading a good book. Breakfast very good.

Another dog friendly place although we thought it was a pub it was more like an upmarket bed and breakfast. They didn't do food and it wasn't really a pub. Plenty of places to eat within walking distance. You can easily walk to Blenheim Palace.
