Bar restaurant area very tired loose carpet to trip over. The whole dining experience is very poor ( breakfast) 2 meals ok , the other 2 very poor I had to ask three times for butter and waited a long time for hot water to top up the tea pot. The bedroom is ok. Bathroom average no towel rail & the wardrobe doors wouldn’t close. Overall we will not return

great comfortable stay
Comfortable and clean. Easy for parking and nice that there is a separate access instead of having to go through the pub. Good WiFi too. A pleasant one night stay just make sure you have ear plugs as in this village the traffic starts early....

Sad face IconDisliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
The room was clean and bright although the bathroom was in need of repairs. The service was sullen on check in with no welcome at all. The pub felt grubby and smelt really stale, clearly not used by locals as the bar was shut at 10pm on a Saturday night. We cancelled our breakfast as we didnt fancy eating in the lounge bar with the very unpleasant smell.

Comfortable Stay
Check-in was quick and easy as it is done by the bar staff. The rooms where spacious enough as a family room and although the beds where a bit squeaky when you rolled over, they where comfortable. The rooms where let down by the fact that some of the light bulbs didn't work, in particular in the closet and over the mirror in the bathroom and dresser area, and there where cobwebs on the ceiling - but more importantly the bedding and towels where clean. It's an old building on the main road through Woodstock so it is to be expected you are going to hear road noise. It was handy that there is private parking as Woodstock itself had nowhere to park as everywhere was full. Breakfast was fabulous - freshly cooked English breakfast. The breakfast menu was limited a cooked breakfasy but the staff where happy to accommodate the kids choices. Overall we had a comfortable, pleasant stay. Would we go back? Probably, but it wouldn't be our first choice as we have stayed in other establishments in Woodstock offerring a higher standard and better value for money.
