From the moment we checked in we could not find fault with anything. After a very warm welcome, we were settled into our cosy room, which was tastefully furnished and spotless. We had a few drinks at the bar before sitting down to our evening meal in the restaurant. The service throughout, at the bar and restaurant was fabulous, and the food was delicious. Breakfast was also very very good.
After reading a few reviews we were not sure what to expect however we couldn't be more pleasantly surprised. A lovely warm welcome from staff who couldn't do enough for you. Our room was fantastic with furnishings in keeping with the style of the hotel (maybe not to some people's taste if you are looking for a contemporary room). The food in the bar on the evening was superb and very reasonably priced. Breakfast was most satisfactory too. OK so there were some little bits here and there that fussy visitors could point out but nothing that could spoil your stay. Worth the price in our opinion.
Staff were very friendly and helpful. Room was lovely and clean, the bed was one of the most comfortable i have ever slept in,in a hotel. They have two kitchens one serves english food the other Indian , my husband had the Sally chicken from the Indian menu which he said was one of the best meals he has tasted. I don't know why there are bad reviews about this place as we found it very clean, the staff were extremely friendly. We would defiantly stay here again and recommend it to others.
My wife and I stayed 2 nights and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The breakfast was excellent, it set us up for the day. The room was very comfortable with only slight noise from the road. We would thoroughly recommend The Punch Bowl, it was everything we wanted at a reasonable price. We left the car at The Punch Bowl and caught the S3 bus (£5.70 return) to Oxford so we didn't have to worry about parking.
Woodstock is such a beautiful English town and this very old house in its high street is so full of charm and character. Our room had a real 'wow' to it with its light, size and loft room roof rafters and its lovely old world feel. Really nice large comfortable bed and very large modern bathroom. Clearly the hotel's age limits its facilities but that wasn't an issue to us. Nice generous breakfast in the morning served by the pleasant and helpful owners.
Would very happily stay there again.

"Cozy little inn right in the center of Woodstock"
A short walk to Blenheim Palace, this cozy inn had ensuite bathroom with shower, two comfy chairs, comfortable bed with extra pillows, comforter. We slept well, and had a great full breakfast in their dining room.
"Quiet and very comfortable at Blenhiem's back gate"
It was great. The rooms were cozy and comfortable. The food was very good. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful with directions, information etc. Hotel could not be in a better location, right at the back gate of Blenhiem Palace so you literally could walk around the corner and through the back gate. This was my second visit with them and I would recommend it to anyone.
