Nice location, friendly staff and classy accommodation.
Wifi sign-up process lengthy.
Location, Woodstock is beautiful. The hotel is lovely. We had a room in main hotel at the front, Cromwell, it was beautiful with huge bathroom. Two big windows in bedroom and one in bathroom.
Can't think of anything.
We had a lovely stay. The bear is a lovely hotel, the staff very friendky, my husband and myself had a lovely dinner in the restaurant. Woodstock is also a beautiful place.
There was nothing we did not like, but just felt £9.10 for two pots of tea was a little steep.
The staff were outstanding. Restaurant menu was fabulous. Cute idea making the cottage along the road into a suite. Room service for breakfast. Ideal location for visiting Blenheim
Woken by footsteps above on a regular basis in the Park Suite/cottage The lack of seating in the bar to enable us to try the 2nd menu on our 2nd night..went elsewhere to eat in Woodstock. Expensive compared to boutique hotel suites Bathroom far too small particularly the bath.
Safe parking, good breakfast
top storey room so many steps to climb, but appreciated assistance of a personable (and very fit!) porter
Location, comfort of rooms and good internet access. Friendly staff were very helpful, esp David the porter.
Its supposed to be old, but some general areas looked a bit shabby and perhaps a redecorate would freshen things up. Sadly, My smoked fish at breakfast was still cold inside .. Maybe it had been frozen? ...so next day i opted for a fry up.
The executive room was spacious, comfortable and quiet. The oak beams were very impressive and it was good to be able to park easily. Breakfast was a delight.
Didn't eat dinner but the menu looked a little pricey and limited in scope.
The restaurant was expensive for the quality and quantity of the food and wine. Attitude and friendliness of staff varied.
Attentive staff Lovely food and location
Authenticity and design of the room/hotel, perfect location for a quick countryside getaway, 5 mins drive to the beautiful Blenheim Palace, 20 mins drive to Bicester Village shopping heaven, 5 mins walk to convenience stores and wonderful restaurants, good service, all special requests met and friendly staff.
Size of room. Nespresso machine Big bed Breakfast Free Parking
Wifi did not work! :-( Restaurant dinner V expensive and poor selection of dishes! :-(
The Macdonald Bear Hotel is ideally situated in the middle of Woodstock Town Centre. It has a wonderful atmosphere. Within minutes of Blenheim Palace and its beautiful parkland. Woodstock itself is fascinating and very pretty. You couldn't do better if you need a break.
-Convenience for Blenheim Palace - good tea and coffee facilities in room
- Bar not very clean generally - Breakfast a ridiculous additional price
..breakfast . the good parking. excellent position marvellous night porter and room cleaner.
gloomy bar and ill trained bar staff had not even heard of whiskys shown on your tariff.neglected and miserable churchill loungestaff appeared from nowhere to carry bags on arrival but noone to help when you left. need a more popular menu for the average traveller.
From the minute we arrived, staff were attentive, friendly and nothing was too much trouble. In particular Poula, one of the front of house staff, deserves special commendation. She was absolutely superb and looked after our party like royalty. Fabulous facilities, excellent restaurant, conveniently located just eight miles from Oxford City Centre.
We looked around trying to find fault...and honestly couldn't. Superb hotel and we'll look forward to a return visit.
The hotel is divided to several properties,so not possible to book rooms near each other,the stairs,management were tooo strict re.check in/out time rate was a bit high
I had a lovely quiet room, clean and spacious. the staff were very helpful.
I think this hotel is good if you get the right room, not so good if you don't, initially I was allocated a room in an old stables building off the car park, ground level. as a woman on her own this felt unsafe, though rationally I am sure it is safe, but I know I find sleeping under this circumstance difficult, so I asked to move. In addition, This first room looked tired, had a big stain on carpet, and overlooked cars, there would be noise from people outside during evening etc. The room I moved to was much much nicer, it was inside the hotel, looked relatively recently decorated, had beams in ceiling, more what I expected. Therefore, I would only stay again, or recommend it, depending on the room allocated.
Friendly staff very helpful and welcoming. The food was excellent and well served if a little pricey. Overall our break was just what we wanted and would come again.
The hotel had loads of character and the staff were fantastic. We had a lovely suite with a four poster bed and the room was spotless. We had the full breakfast and it was great, you definitely won't leave hungry! The rates are a little on the pricey side but the service was impeccable and we were very well looked after. I would definitely recommend the hotel to others.
The hotel is perfectly situated and the room itself and breakfast were good. All the staff we came into contact with were very pleasant and efficient
The noise from the extraction fans in the kitchen below our bedroom (24) was very loud first thing in the morning, not an issue it seems at night as they had stopped by the time we turned in for the night. The cleaning in the bathroom could have been better and the pillows on the bed are awfully thin.
Staff arguing with each other in front of us all in dinner Charging us the wrong amount for food after it being asked once to be changed already Talking rudely about other customers in front of us
The hotel was full of character as was the location of Woodstock. The room was a really good size and very comfortable. Live soft towels.
Anything different on the breakfast menu you had yo pay extra for .
Beautiful rooms Parking right in front of the room Excellent friendly staff
Restaurant was very expensive - £17.50 for breakfast, so we ate out at a nearby cafe.
Charming hotel, with very pleasant and attentive staff. Rooms spacious and comfortable. I had the vegetarian breakfast which was surprisingly tasty.
We had dinnernd there a found the food underwhelming for the price.
The bed was extreamly comfortable. Possibly the most comfortable I slept in.
Tried to book on for breakfast but the cost was extortionate. So went to lovely tea shop a couple of doors down, for less than half the price.
