Very warm welcome and easy parking behind the property (check how to get round the back before you get there) We had a superior deluxe room and it was spotless and very comfortable. Big room and excellent bed (not hard as a brick like many, worst possible idea for bad backs I was told by a hospital specialist) All very...

We had a lovely night here recently and enjoyed an exceptional service as soon as we arrived. The young lady in Reception was very welcoming and explained everything we needed to know. The room was comfortable with a large superking bed. This is quite an old building but very clean. There are lovely features - log fires, wooden and flagstone...

Lovely place to stay overnight. Building is beautiful and has been refurbished well. Quirky corridors and lopsided floors all add to its character. Fabulous welcome and we felt well looked after. Nothing was too much trouble. Our room was 2 floors up at the front of the building and was quite peaceful considering busy road outside. Nice spacious room and...

A special couple of days in the Cotswolds, ending in one pleasant night at the Marlborough Arms. Very welcoming and comfortable. We had a huge room on the main road, but didn't hear the traffic. We were only a few minutes walk from one of the entrances to Blenheim palace. Breakfast was lovely freshly made to order. Definitely stay again.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Marlborough Arms is a beautiful 15th century coaching inn, situated in the heart of Woodstock, overlooking historical streets and offers Bed and Breakfast. Whilst guests can enjoy the tranquillity of the surroundings they still have good links to the M40. The hotel has been elegantly finished in a classic style in-keeping with the character of the building and surrounding area, with contemporary touches throughout. Guests can also take advantage of the inn's own car park located directly behind the property.Each of the thirteen luxurious en-suite bedrooms are all individually themed with a focus on comfort and relaxation. All rooms differ in shape, size and style, ranging from the Cobalt Room, which is situated overlooking the courtyard which has a contemporary feel with beautiful sensuous fabrics and natural morning light, through to the Sepia Room, which is a very large room with a striking interior of deep greys and gentle soft tones, set off with modern lamps and cushions. All of the rooms have flat screen televisions, tea and coffee making facilities, hairdriers, irons and ironing boards. Some have baths, some large walk-in showers and some rooms are equipped with both! ... more   less
