        Memorable and great staff, rooms and pub. You are missing out if you do not stay at the Duke!

        You hope when you travel abroad that your accommodations will be clean, reasonable, enjoyable and friendly. You don't always get all four in one location, but we did with the Duke of Marlborough. When we started planning our second trip to England for 2014, one of the few requirements that we had was that we would return to Oxford and that, without question, we would stay at the Duke of Marlborough. We discovered this gem by accident on the road and were taken in by the pictures of the pub, the rooms and the rate. We were not disappointed. Derek and the staff were incredibly friendly, willing to help us with our trip plans, and made us feel welcome. The food (and drink) was fantastic and the rooms great. I cannot recommend The Duke of Marlborough highly enough; it became our "local" while we were there, and I know that we will be returning whenever we are back in England.

        Steven, Tom and I had a dreadful night, abandoning all pretenses of sleep at 4am. That did, however, mean we were up and out of the cottage quickly (by 8.15am) - we hadn't understood that the breakfast provided the first day wouldn't be repeated, so we were also looking for a feed! Silbury Hill, the barrows, the stone circle of the Sanctuary, and …

        Blenheim Palace, an accompanying 2000-acre estate, and the title of Duke of Marlborough were gifts from Queen Anne to General John Churchill for his 1704 victory in the War of Spanish Succession. He defeated the French forces in the Battle of Blenheim, and it was stated repeatedly during my tour that this victory is ...

        I got the idea to go for a run around 5PM because I was at a point where I couldn't really do much more work without those bits of information. But then I got a better idea to plan a big dinner for the whole admin team at the Turf Tavern. ...
