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.

The Palace is famed as the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill, Britain’s great wartime leader. We saw the Churchill Exhibition including the room where he was born in 1874. The display was very interesting, there were many of his letters to his parents and others, his history, his personal life, his experiences at Blenheim, the relationship with his grandmother the Duchess of Marlborough ...
... otherwise we might as well just play a CD. By the third try they were doing much better, so I felt really good after rehearsal.
I went back to the office at that point because I had to do room checks for staircases 9 and 10. The room checks are really important on the final day because it is our first step in making sure the students are ready to depart quickly and on time. We each take a few staircases and go through each room to make sure 1) It is clean, ...
... staying in the old part over looking the road (opposite a pub - on a Friday night - just ask Gary about that one!!) and talk about corridors going every which way in the last place! This was crazier! The building itself was all crooked, with funny shaped doors and windows to match the gaps, but also the floors rolled away from you, the camber on the stair treds went the wrong way, there were hidden doors & rooms everywhere! The ...
... in, with a cinema room and a popcorn machine maker to the left. Downstairs lead to a massive queen size bed and a lush ensuite.
After seeing the master suite we asked if we could take a look at the prison section of the hotel. She showed us around the rooms and even took us own the the basement where they kept the prison how it looked back in the day.
After the prison we took ...
