We had a 2 night stay while visiting local attractions. The hospitality was always warm and friendly- love the real fires! Accommodation, clean, warm and adequately equipped. However, the superbly stocked bar, friendly staff and top grade restaurant food was an absolute bonus! Thank you so much for a fantastic stay. I'm sure we will return x

Excellent. Friendly helpful staff. Relaxing environment. Good variety on evening meal menu and great bacon at breakfast. Easy to find car parking close to rooms. Rooms good sized and well equipped. Eating area warm fire and portrait of Churchill and a fire made for comfortable venue. Particularly like its individuality - no big chain logos etc.

We are a family of 5, with 3 teenagers. Would definitely return. Adjoining rooms were clean and warm, and large. Owners were very friendly, making the extra effort to ensure the internet access worked for us. Meals on site (breakfasts and one dinner) were wonderful. Very convenient to be able to buy Blenheim Palace tickets at the hotel. Thank you...

Our Walking Group of 22 people had an excellent Christmas Lunch at the Duke of Marlborough. Beautifully cooked turkey with all the trimmings. Good value and excellent service. It was all done at very short notice as we had been badly let down by another restaurant.

We were really pleased with our stay, and wouldn't have wanted it any other way. Very comfy bed and a well kept room. Great food and drink and the service from the staff was great as well. Will definitely return when next visiting the area.
