Cons: Nothing
7.1 Good
Pros: The staff were friendly and welcoming. Handy car park. Nice breakfast room.
Cons: Our room needed refurbishing. The room was at the front of the hotel, and was noisy unless we shut the windows, when it got very hot.
9.6 Excellent

10.0 Excellent
Pros: This beautiful property was a pleasure to stay in. Our room was superb and met our every need. The bed was absolutely super comfy and a super king size as well, yet there was still plenty of room for a lovely little sofa too. The location couldn’t have been more perfect - right on the quaint little high street, with wonderful pubs and restaurants and Blenheim Palace literally a couple of minutes’ walk away. Fantastic cooked breakfast as well!
Cons: Can’t fault it!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great place to stay.lovely hosts
4.2 Okay
Pros: The location was good, close to Blenheim palace and Oxford.
Cons: It was right on a busy street with a bus stop right under our windows, and all family rooms facing on the busy street. My son could not sleep during the night at all. It was terribly hot and they only had one small fan in a room which was not sufficient to cool anyone down. I had to cut our stay short and was expected at least one night refund, but got nothing. I had to let 2 nights go, because the conditions were unbearable, and I had to rent another hotel with AC. It could be different if the weather would be different, but the hotel was completely not ready and prepared to accommodate any change based of our miserable situation.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Nice old world charm hotel in centre of village. Very friendly staff
6.3 Good
Pros: Clean and comfortable room,a little over priced for a b+b.

C$ 154+
Overview Reviews
Located in Woodstock, The Blenheim Buttery is within a 15-minute drive of Blenheim Palace and University of Oxford.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything
Cons: The room was clean and lovely. It is not a large room , as it's own on suite, but makes up with the hospitality. Can't do enough to make sure you was happy. First class English breakfast, 5 minute walk to blenheim place and saw lots of buses to Oxford. Small town but lovely and friendly. Totally recommend the hotel.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Friendly staff, good position near Blenheim palace and places to eat.
Cons: Bathroom was shabby but clean, needs some attention particularly a new basin as was badly cracked.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: A lovely personal welcome, a great location, really friendly, competent and helpful staff and a fabulous breakfast.
Cons: Minor detail, but the bathroom in our ensuite needed a little attention to maintenance, not picked up by housekeeping. The owners have welcomed my well-intended message on this, and have said all will be fixed.
7.5 Good
Pros: Very welcoming and friendly staff and great location. Room very clean and full of character. Breakfast was good and great service.

8.8 Excellent
Pros: The location staff and the overall access of the building were all excellent.
Cons: The TV was tiny in the room and not particularly accessible.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: We were attending an event at Blenheim Palace, and as the Blenheim Buttery was literally a short stroll around the corner we could't have been better located. The hotel itself was quaint, clean and comfortable, with modern facilities. Breakfast was good (although fresh orange juice would have been better than from concentrate). Overall, a good experience, if somewhat expensive at £145.
Cons: No air-conditioning, but as it wasn't too hot it wasn't a problem. Towel rail next to the sink would have been nice.

5.4 Okay
Pros: Nice clean room, good tv. Ample parking. Near main road.
Cons: The way the manager talked to me when I told him I did not like the food. I ordered a hotpot (regular price £12.95). What I got was a tiny bowl of stew with sliced boiled potato on top. On the plate were unappetizing green beans and carrots (boiled from frozen?). When I said that this was not hot pot as the potatoes need to be thinly sliced and cooked with the meat I was told that "this is how we do it". I showed him many photos of hot pots on google but he was having none of it and argued and was nasty. I returned it to the kitchen but he told the lady at the till 'she's paying for it!'. The other lady behind the bar was angry with me too as the 'chef' was her son. Very unprofessional, nasty, aggressive and an altogether horrible experience. I was tempted to call the Police because of the way I was treated (single woman alone). Please note: there was no swearing however I have never had such a bad experience in hospitality.
7.9 Good
Pros: Great stay
Cons: It was great vfm
7.5 Good
Pros: The staff were all so friendly & nice and the service was excellent. The food was good, lots of choices & excellent puddings. Our room was clean & comfortable, with a huge walk in shower. The rooms were tucked away behind the main building so quiet & I couldn't hear the road

Cons: Further from Oxford centre than thought
3.3 Mediocre
Pros: Nothing
Cons: The beds were uncomfortable the bed sheets were cheap and plastic feeling the pillows were awful I would never stay here again. Couldn’t even be bothered to remake the room up after the first night had wet towels the next day - very very disappointing all round
8.3 Excellent
Pros: I was very impressed with the whole package and the room I stayed in was lovely and spacious. The parking was not an issue and the breakfast was good. There is a nice bar for the evening, and the rooms were equipped with modern tvs
Cons: My only gripe was the bed. The mattress was so thing, and the springs could be felt. It is such a shame as everything else was excellent
10.0 Excellent

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Fabulous all round
5.0 Okay
Pros: Location, vibe, artwork, gin bar
Cons: Told we had been upgraded but had booked a superior double anyway. Bathroom pokey, toiletries only for 1. Bathrobes Very worn. Floor wonky so you both roll to one side of bed. Poor decor, flaking. Pillows stank of previous occupants mouth dribble had to ask to have them changed. Left room after lunch with make up room sign displaying. Returned six 30, no service. A receptionist made up bed, but no clean towels, toiletries or more milk for coffee set up. This place needs some tlc a nd better supervising.
5.8 Okay
Pros: Great location. Gentleman in the bar ....Octvaious? ...was great.
Cons: The service was hit & miss. We were asked if we would like to see the pudding menu and said yes please, then never saw another member of staff in the restaurant. Also, we were very hot during the night. And on inspection, the bed has a plastic backed mattress cover. Not nice.
7.5 Good
Pros: We liked the garden and restaurant. Breakfast was lovely and also all the staff were very helpful and competent.
Cons: Unfortunately, we had the worst room in the hotel, room 26. I say this in terms of the noise not the decor. However there was also no window, only a fire escape and just outside on the wall was an a very loud extractor fan that came on at 5am! It was like trying to sleep on an aircraft.You could not have the fire escape window/doors open. It was also had been a very hot day and then night. There was a new air conditioning unit in the room however we were unable to operate it aas there were no instructions! We did try! We complained about the lack of sleep before checking out but only our comments were noted. Nothing has been done since and we have not been contacted by The Feather's.

With a stay at Duke of Marlborough Hotel - Inn in Woodstock, you'll be within a 10-minute drive of Blenheim Palace and Oxfordshire Museum. Free self parking is available onsite.
7.9 Good
Pros: The size of the room. The staff friendly and food good. The Location is excellent for visiting the area including Blenheim Palace. Breakfast was very nice. Car parking is off road and there is plenty of it.
Cons: I thought we were staying in an old coach house but you actually stay in a “motel-like” unit of about 8 rooms. The room is a good size but very tired and dated. The fixtures needed a little maintenance and corners needed to be cleaned. Light needed bulbs. The potential for this place is amazing given its location and if it were mine I definitely would make a little more effort to bring the place up a notch.

5.3 Okay
Pros: enjoyed dinner and breakfast and friendlyness of the manager and staff - enjoyed the open fire place - hotel was easy to find
Cons: located a little too far out of Woodstock which meant we had to use the car to visit Windsor central as opposed to leaving the car and walking we didn't realise this at the time of booking - also free WIFI only worked in the bar area not in your room - no real problem but just a little inconvenient

Macdonald Bear Hotel - Woodstock - Building
9
8.1 Excellent (1,582 reviews)
C$ 199+
Overview Reviews
Macdonald Bear Hotel is centrally located in Woodstock, a 1-minute walk from Oxfordshire Museum and 12 minutes by foot from Blenheim Palace. Featured amenities include express check-out, dry cleaning/laundry services, and a 24-hour front desk. Planning an event in Woodstock? This hotel has facilities measuring 1937 square feet (180 square meters), including conference space. Self parking (subject to charges) is available onsite.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Comfortable, clean and lovely setting.
Cons: Chaotic service in dining room in the evening but more particularly during breakfast. Cold buffet food, very slow service, repeated requests from us and other guests to obtain basic requirements eg cutlery + 45 minute wait for poached eggs. We all had breakfast at our table at separate stages rather than served together. This appeared to be the case at each table. One elderly couple commented they found the process of securing breakfast ‘exhausting.’ Seemed to be severe staff shortage with one very helpful and relentlessly well mannered member of staff desperately trying to manage both the service and guests mounting requests / complaints. Apart from this chap, the staff appeared to have been either very poorly trained or were entirely oblivious to the basic skills required for working in a restaurant. Utter chaos.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Very comfortable room (18). Generous water x 2 each day Good parking Quiet
Cons: Dinner- steak seemed as if it had been cooked from frozen. A medium rare was charred on outside, but uncooked on inside, but no juices or flavour. Bit chaotic at breakfast. Several complaints from customers, plates not hot, lack of food etc. asked for more tea, twice, eventually came on third ask. But..... Breakfast ended at 10am. At least three tables arrived just before and then seemed disgruntled when there was a lack of food. The chap in charge, who was very nice, was offering to have full English breakfasts cooked freshly for the unhappy punters. They actually should have arrived on time. He did very well under obviously difficult situations, but maybe the end of breakfast should have been just that.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Much bigger and nicer room and bathroom than I'd expected at the price, from previous experience at staying at other similar properties in Woodstock.
Cons: Excellent hot breakfast, well presented at the buffet stand, was slightly let down by being only luke warm...easily fixed with serving on hot plates from a plate warmer?
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great local bread at breakfast.
Cons: BUFFET breakfast....COLD PLATES COLD FOOD such a shame as quality products.
5.4 Okay
Pros: Location because it’s within walking distance of Blenheim Palace and it has a car park
Cons: Check in and check out was a shambles (both times wrong prices/bill and very slow). Room (on the ground floor adjacent to the car park) was dark, musty and noisy (could hear people walking around their room upstairs, doors opening and closing etc) and this was supposed to be a ‘good’ room ie. more expensive. The bar wasn’t really manned with staff who knew what or how to serve drinks or how to charge for them and the breakfast was a farce. We entered the restaurant at 9.15 am (breakfast allegedly available between 7 to 10 am) and the hot buffet was bereft of food. Eventually, the various warming containers were refilled but not adequately as there was a large queue of fellow diners and it all went very quickly. And, the bread was stale as well as a pastry I tried. All in all, poor.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast was fine, there was plenty of food even though we were quite late. I gather some people had complained about a lack of food but we found it fine. There was cereal, fruit and hot food too. I asked for toast and a selection of brown and white appeared very quickly. We enjoyed it. Room was spacious and bed comfy. Large TV and a fridge too. Perfect.
Cons: Nothing, had a great time.
5.4 Okay
Pros: Room was cosy but dark. Bar was a nice design and style . Dinner was ok
Cons: Room too dark, dining room too dark and like a pub dining room . Breakfast was pretty awful.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The room was beautiful, spacious and comfortable as were the facilities. The location was perfect and the staff were very friendly and incredibly helpful.
Cons: The bathroom could’ve been a lot cleaner and there were a few items that needed repairing in the bathroom. Also the breakfast was ok, but I’d advise going down early as the choice was limited later on.
6.0 Good
Pros: Lovely room. Very comfortable and cosy with a good bed and plenty of hot water. Friendly Head lady on at breakfast. Plenty of gluten free options.
Cons: Very slow breakfast. Waited along time for the breakfast to arrive. Not very comfortable restaurant or bar area. No evening menu until the restaurant opened at 1900 and then very limited choice.
7.9 Good
Pros: Fantastic location....fab breakfast too
Cons: Rooms badly need modernising. Glad I didn't stay in summer...saw there were fans but room too warm. Pillows much too soft...previously stayed in other hotel in Woodstock which was 5 star!!

9.6 Excellent
