The ivy-clad Macdonald Bear Hotel Woodstock is a former coaching inn that came into existence as long ago as the 13th century. With its period features, open fire places, stone walls and oak beams, the Bear is a beautifully romantic place to stay. The charmingly traditional village of Woodstock draws in numerous visitors each year. Many come in search of the stunning Blenheim Palace, which is situated nearby. The village itself is a place of character and elegance. Lovely buildings and impressive history are key hallmarks of this little Oxfordshire settlement.
The lounge at the Macdonald Bear Hotel Woodstock overlooks the pretty market square. The lounge is named after Winston Churchill, who was born at Blenheim Palace in 1874. While there are places to eat and drink nearby, the hotel itself has its own restaurant and bar. Both are very traditional in appearance. The Restaurant serves fine British cuisine while the Bar is a little more relaxed and informal.
Six meeting rooms - 40 capacity theatre style
Car parking - complimentary, 40 spaces
The Macdonald Bear Hotel Woodstock is bursting with historic country house charm, and is located just 10 miles away from the wonderful city of Oxford. After exploring this world-renowned city or spending time at meetings during the day, head back to your lovely bedroom or suite to put your feet up and rest your head. The Macdonald Bear Hotel Woodstock has relaxing and traditional bedrooms with period features and good views, and there are bedrooms that are perfect for families. The feature bedrooms have four-poster or canopy beds to wow their visitors, with views of the courtyard for good measure. At the height of it all, though, are two suites that were frequented by Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton on a number of occasions. The Marlborough Suite and the Blenheim Suite, which has a stone fireplace and bay window, are very romantic in keeping with this excellent little Woodstock hotel.
