Macdonald Bear Hotel

For those distinguished and discreet smaller business meetings and events; a charming, creeper clad hotel overlooking the picturesque Market Square in Woodstock. This former 13th century coaching inn has 6 meeting rooms seating a maximum of 30 people, providing a more traditional setting for executive meetings, conferences, presentations, networking receptions and private dining. Expect 4-star hospitality, modern facilities and country style ambience.

Seating up to 30, the Park Room brings Georgian elegance to your event; high ceilings, tall windows that allow the light to pour in, a sparkling chandelier – it’s a lovely venue for smaller conferences and champagne receptions. The Churchill Lounge also seats 30 and is brilliant for networking events with plenty of comfortable armchairs and sofas. The deep red velvet curtains and antique furniture of the Newbold Room make the perfect backdrop for distinguished executive meetings or refined private dining for up to 24 guests. For hush-hush executive meetings for 12, The Cotswold Suite is a discerning room with exposed stone walls and historic paintings in gilt frames, and for very small syndicate meetings and break outs The Machine Room seats 6 delegates.

The meeting rooms overlook the attractive market square and have complimentary wifi and up-to-the-minute audio-visual technology. You’ll be looked after by an attentive team and you might want to take advantage of the delegate packages offered by Macdonald Bear Hotel, which include basic stationery and 2 course lunch options.

For those overnight stays there are 54 classically styled rooms with Freeview TV, a work desk and hospitality tray. The restaurant has 2 AA rosettes and serves delectable British cuisine with a modern twist, using the finest locally sourced produce. Enjoy lighter bites and coffee in the relaxed ambience of the Churchill Lounge.

Macdonald Bear Hotel is a mere 2 minutes’ drive from the A44 and close to the A34 and M40. Oxford is just over 9 miles away and Heathrow Airport, 50 miles.
