“Pleasant...But Just "OK"”
Reviewed 10 September 2010

I was really looking forward to staying at the Woodstock Inn. I'd walked through the public spaces previously, and found them to be very nice and "New Englandy." While that is still the case, my overall experience was just ok.

We stayed in the "Tavern Wing" which supposedly is a step above the standard room (it also costs a bit more). I cannot compare since I haven't been in a standard...but all in all I would not describe it as luxurious which is, I think, how the Inn bills itself. The carpeting was attractive but had some stains. The bedding was, as advertised, very nice. The Inn is a bit handicapped as it is an old building, and thus, the space is what is is. The bathroom had been renovated, and while not tiny, it's certainly not large (but short of gutting the place, not much you can do...hence my commented about being handicapped by age). I think it's the little things that make a place luxurious, and two things, in particular, stuck out to me. First, the towels were, at best, average. At this price point I expected something far above average. Also, the thermostat in the room. It was some antiquated thing with "low-medium-high" settings....I couldn't find any actual temp control...nor could I figure out how to turn it off. As it turned out, the weather was temperate and we kept the windows open...but this just seemed very out of place.

A few other random observations. They advertise turndown service, but in our three night stay, it never happened. The staff was very pleasant. Tea/cookies at 4PM was nice. Location is the best in town. Fitness center is a mile and half away...so you either have to take a shuttle or drive...makes no sense to me.

In the end, it was not the special experience I had hoped to have with my wife. Consequently, next time around, we will try someplace else.

Made reservation about 2 week s earlier on whim and location. Easy chaeck in and ceckout. Great room overlooking interior green across from pool. Very well maintained. Service had emailed for making any extra services like the gold or spa. Library with coffee and computer. Could not get computer to connect to wifi which was disappointing although hotel did try to help. room service was good. Beautiful grounds near, minutes from stores and restaurants in Woodstock

The hotel is located by the village green in the charming town of Woodstock which has all your needs to day adventures. When we got to the hotel the woman that was helping was slow but when we got to the rooms they were very cozy especially since it was raining. The beds were very comfy. I would go back.

We stayed here for 4 nights with our two daughters aged 4 and 6 during a visit to New England from the UK. We all loved the hotel-very well appointed rooms, great service, excellent location in town and nice touches such as free wifi and free cookies and coffee/tea in the afternoon.

Spa still being finished when we were there but we used the outdoor pool a lot. Woodstock we felt was a lovely place with a relaxed ambience and charm and felt like a real village rather than just a tourist trap. Everything walkable, which is unusual for USA. Room rates pretty reasonable given facilities although we felt breakfast, although great choice and quality, was a little pricey. Overall though, thoroughly recommended.

We stayed for three nights and it was lovely. Our room was very pretty and had a fireplace. The bathroom was adequate - that could have been larger. I must say, this room had the most storage room of any hotel room I have ever stayed in. The staff is so friendly and professional. We enjoyed the Tavern very much. We had breakfast included in our package and the buffet was good. The main dining room where breakfast is serviced is a pretty room. I agree with another reviewer that this is an older crowd (50+) - something that was to our benefit! It's nice to go somewhere so civilized. Woodstock is a pretty town and there is lots to do in the area.
I'm sure Christmas must be wonderful here!

We loved our stay at the Woodstock Inn. The rooms are comfortable, clean and tastefully decorated. The rest of the inn is just as beautiful, with lots of charm and attention to detail. We especially enjoyed the pool in the courtyard, which is in a peaceful and serene setting of well manicured gardens and slate pathways. The pool was also one of the cleanest hotel pools I've been to... and they didn't use excess chlorine as many hotels do, just lots of care to get it right. This seems to be the theme of the inn, care and attention to detail. We noticed it in everything, including the service. To top it all off, the Woodstock Inn has an excellent restaurant called the Red Rooster, which is worth a special trip if you're anywhere close to Vermont.

Since we had such a wonderful experience last year, we opted to travel again to the Woodstock Inn as part of our summer vacation. We stayed in a suite at a special rate (advertised on their website) and it was just beautiful. During the week, the resort is extremely quiet and peaceful - just what we wanted. We enjoyed drinks on the lawn every evening and also ate at Richardson's Tavern and The Red Rooster during our stay. Both were excellent. Breakfast is served in The Dining Room. Coffee is great, but the continental breakfast should include more fresh fruit and the presentation is a bit off given the price point. This being said, we highly recommend this resort for anyone who is looking for a beautiful slice of heaven in Vermont!
