We had a rather disastarous time in Dunster (more of that in another review!) and thought what can we do to turn the week around after a shorter holiday than planned.
We've always wanted to visit Blenheim Palace and having looked at hotels previously, the Kings Arms was the one that I liked the look of the most.
My partner booked a room for us over the phone and we duly made our way up the M5 the next day.
After a long journey the welcome we got couldn't have been warmer. We left our bags with the hotel while the room was being cleaned and took a walk around Woodstock which is lovely. Upon our return we were shown up to our room and our bags were bought up. We upgraded to dinner, bed and breakfast (an extra £50.00) which proved to be very good value.
The room was spotless as was the bathroom. The style of the hotel, restaurant and rooms as a whole is modern but with character - just the right balance. There was ample tea, coffee, hot chocolate and water. There was even box hedging outside the windows on ledges to give a bit of greenery to the view.
The food was delicious we thoroughly enjoyed dinner and breakfast during our 2 night stay and wouldn't hesitate to recommend or return.
All the staff we spoke to were helpful and chatty without being over the top.
