We stayed here for 2 nights as participated in a charity walk at nearby Blenheim Palace (this is the closest inn/hotel to the Palace actually, I think). Had a twin room right at the top of the building, it did overlook the back car park and smoking area but the noise levels were minimal; it really wasn't an issue. Room & bathroom were quite spacious, yes the décor is a bit old and tired but we were not expecting the Ritz and to be honest, in a place like Woodstock, you're out and about all the time anyway so it's not a problem. Room was clean and we had everything we needed. Service was excellent, everyone was really friendly, staff and locals alike. The bar is lovely, good place to relax and enjoy a nightcap. Breakfast was fine, no complaints at all. If you're looking for a luxurious room, go to the nearby Macdonald chain hotel, otherwise, I would fully recommend staying here, we loved it!
