The Feathers Hotel is a boutique 4-star property in the market town of Woodstock on the edge of the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and 15 minutes' drive from Oxford. The hotel was converted from seven separate 17th-century houses and features open log fires, antique furniture and traditional English furnishings.

This "intimate and unique hotel" (The AA) is a few minutes' walk from the gates of Blenheim Palace -- a 17th-century stately home, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill (open daily).

There is a direct bus from Woodstock to Oxford, which takes around 30 minutes (this is often easier than driving into the city). Here, you can explore the city's "rich history, tradition and energetic academic life" (Lonely Planet), including its famous university colleges and museums. Stratford-upon-Avon -- the birthplace of Shakespeare -- is a 50-minute drive from the hotel.

You can learn about local history, art, archaeology, landscape and wildlife by visiting The Oxfordshire Museum, two minutes' walk from the hotel (free; open Tuesday-Sunday).

Featured in Harper's Bazaar and Alastair Sawday's Special Places to Stay, The Feathers Hotel has free-standing baths, an al fresco terrace and one of the world's largest collections of gins. There is also a 2-AA-Rosette restaurant, where "thoroughly modern British cooking is the order of the day", says The AA Restaurant Guide 2018.

According to The AA, "individually styled bedrooms are appointed to a high standard and are furnished with attractive period and reproduction furniture". Wi-Fi is free.

Excellent European staff who know how to serve people correctly, good dinner menu, great breakfast and lovely comfortable bed in a large well appointed room.Travelzoo deal excellent. Otherwise the hotel would have been expensive. £29.00 steak and chips?

Well located for Blenheim. Only downside was the parking but there is not a lot that they can do about that.

Fabulous Food and proximity to Blenheim Palace

I gave value for money 5 stars but that was only because I had a good deal from Travelzoo. If I had booked direct I think it would have been too expensive
