I stayed for business but the overall experience was great. My room was very spacious, it had everything you would need from tea and coffee making facilities (nespresso machine) to crystal glasses for water. It would be ideal for a couple wanting to explore the area. It is also really close to Blenheim Palace. The food was good but the portions were a little small (fine dining). The parking was limited but there is available parking close by if you talk to the receptionist about where is allowed... Read more

Lovely character hotel with great feature rooms. The rooms are large, comfortable and well equipped. The service from the hotel staff I found to be great, and parking was an added bonus in a place like this. Its right on the doorstep of Blenheim palace so plenty to do and there are some lovely cafes around in the square nearby.

Marvellous time with all in the hotel friendly and helpful. Food and choice were excellent. The breakfast was first rate. The location and amenities all around the hotel were fantastic with the opportunity visit The palace just by walking to the end of the street. The ability to park was a definite advantage.

From the moment we arrived, we felt very welcome. Having only booked the day before, we felt we might have been given a very standard room but were shocked at the room itself. Wonderful stay in a wonderful village! And just a very short and picturesque walk to Blenheim Palace.

I booked this hotel as I was working at Blenheim Palace, I couldn't have been happier with my choice - it was quicker to walk to the Palace grounds than to drive, and the hotel had a very big free carpark. The staff at the hotel were very friendly, on arrival the first thing I needed was a pot of tea, the waitress gave me tea even though I'd not checked in added it to my room with such a level of trust that you rarely find in hotels these days.

Visiting Woodstock for the Blenheim triathlon. Stayed in a double room in the bed hotel. Room was small but very comfortable. The fitted bathroom was smart and well equipped.. Excellent breakfast. Cheerful and flexible staff, many of whom have been there for a long time. I visited many times before and will probably do so again.

Whenever I travel to Oxford for business I stay at The Bear. I love the charm of the centuries old building, with its fire places, wooden beams and creaky floors. Rooms are well-equipped and spacious. They're all different. Some rooms aren't that suitable for tall people, for instance because they have low door frames. Room 45 has a shower with such a low ceiling that anyone over 1.85 m will not fit underneath. Breakfast is delicious: cooked breakfast made to order. Good coffee too.

This is, or at least should be, a lovely hotel - an interesting and quaint building, ideally set within Woodstock, with staff who are invariably friendly and helpful. Each time we come (which is for both business and pleasure), though, there are a few 'little problems' that let down the experience. This time it was wasps in our room (clearly a nest nearby, though we and the staff couldn't identify where, and there were no alternative rooms available) and a power cut. The latter was not the hotel... Read more

Hotel great, the Park Suite fantastic, but what a meal? We were dinner b&b and paid £3 each for mash, courgettes, my wife had ox cheek lasagne at £5 premium, terrible meal, my chicken consume had far too much garlic, head waiter bought the wrong starter, no apologies but the two girls tried hard. Breakfast ok but make sure you get in the deal as at £21 each not great.

The title says it all, really - the staff are the jewels in the Bear's crown - everyone was very attentive, friendly, courteous, welcoming and helpful. We particularly like that breakfast is still cooked to order (unlike most other hotels where buffet breakfasts are now the norm). Dinner was very good, too. We have stayed in the main building before but preferred the rooms in the 'house' (51 onwards, I think).

Booked this hotel as a last minute thing. It's a lovely hotel, and the staff were effecient and polite. Had a drink at the bar on a sunny day, which was nice. The room was a decent size, the wall was a bit thin and can hear what's going on next door. The bed was very comfortable and the breakfast was filling and tasty the next morning. Overall, happy with the stay.

Great hotel in the centre of town and within walking distance of Blenheim and Oxford Museum . Off-street parking . Plenty of options nearby to eat and drink. Staff very pleasant and helpful.

Just steps away from Blenheim Palace, our stay here was perfect. The Bear is an historic hotel in Woodstock. Easy to get to and convenient to services such as bus and ATM. We had a twin room, very cozy and comfortable. We took the Blenheim package which included breakfast and tickets to the palace. Typical light lunch menu. Breakfast included cold buffet plus hot choices such as porridge and eggs Benedict. Would definitely recommend and would stay here again.

We enjoyed a good overnight stay at The Bear. However, although our room was classified as an "Executive" room, presumably because it had two chairs, it was on second floor and was very stuffy, with only a small window and a fan, which was insufficient. Given its location I do not believe that this should be an "Executive" room, plus the shower leaked beneath the screen all over the floor.

We booked an executive double room to find that it was in the eaves with one tiny window, so high up it was difficult to see out. It was a warm night and the lack of ventilation was uncomfortable. The decor was very drab, there was nothing in the mini fridge and it was gloomy. Whilst I appreciate properties with character, the carpets were thread bare in places and generally looked grubby. The seated area outside where you could have a drink over looks the fire escape and the whole area is la... Read more

We stayed for two nights. Dinner was nice but slow /non existent service. Wine didn't arrive until further prompts. Room was too hot and had really thin walls. We heard the couple next door very clearly. It's a beautiful hotel, full of history and ambiance but it would've been helpful to receive a heads-up from the reception staff about the thin walls and creaky floorboards.

Admittedly, the hotel is a bit "old" and sound-proofing is not its best feature but it is a pleasant, elegant, and convenient hotel in which to stay. The service is nearly 5-star. We stayed there a year prior and we had our heart set on our same room so they accommodated our request without a problem.
