Woodstock is a pleasant village next to Blenhiem Palace - the Bear's location is idyllic. The hotel is on old rambling inn that does have charm, but some might find it a bit too twee. The room was very well appointed with a new bathroom and was clean - although was not particularly luxurious feeling. Wifi is free and of excellent quality. The restaurant is regarded as a key feature - but the food is over presented and does not live up to the expectation being created. Fortunately Woodstock has an abundance of places to east and so if the restaurant is not to you liking it is not a show stopper. Not a particularly cheap hotel, but given its historic qualities and location - the price is to be expected. Staff very welcoming and friendly.
