Anniversary Weekend
A Hotel in a great location for Blenhiem Palace, very nice rooms and very clean. Staff very friendly and helpful. It is a shame they have surcharges on certain items on the breakfast menu when breakfast is included in the room. There is a Service charge in the bar of 10% which is added to an already expensive menu of drinks.

Saturday night stay at the Bear Woodstock…
Really lovely Saturday night stay at the Bear. We ate at Brotherton’s Brasserie in the evening (close to the hotel) - would highly recommend. Breakfast was good at the hotel but very very very slow - although we weren’t in a hurry on the Sunday morning to be fair. They do charge for parking which seems a bit odd when the room rate is around the £180 mark and they could do with an EV charger. We were also charged an additional £30 for our dogs which I have mixed feelings about. Generally, and in balance, we were v pleased with the Bear overall - lovely staff and fellow guests. Woodstock is a fab place.
