I’ve been staying at The Bear since the mid nineties. There are other good comfortable digs in Woodstock but this is the best. Beds comfy, food great, staff friendly. Like a lot of people, I’m only promoted to write a review when something is frustrating/annoying or both.
I mentioned at check out once that charging a £2 supplement for kippers in the morning felt like they were trying to squeeze another few quid out their guests and perhaps there were better last impressions they could have. Unfortunately, they’re at it again. On check out... have you parked a car? That’ll be £10 please. Really? Come on! Apparently it’s because there are new parking restrictions outside in the street so the management decide to take that opportunity to fleece their guests. There is there no notice in the car park or anywhere I saw that was obvious, but even so, it feels like you’re being ripped off. Even the staff were embarrassed about it.
