My company booked my business trip here and I was more than pleasantly surprised! I stayed for one week and fell in love with this historical hotel and the history of Woodstock! There was a small (and free!) but very informative Oxfordshire museum located just across the street from The Bear. Another great place was the Blenheim Palace which is only a 5 min walk from the hotel.... Beautiful, simply a beautiful palace and grounds. If you buy a one day pass, you can turn it into an annual pass and you get an ID with your pic on it.. very nice touch. I was planning on jumping on a short bus ride to Oxford but found myself staying in Woodstock to enjoy the quaint countryside for the weekend. I would recommend this place in a heartbeat!
