Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My son and new daughter-in-law were married here. The entire experience was exceptional, and second to none. To be honest, the venue looks nice from the front, but when you go inside where the reception is held and out the back area, you realise truly how beautiful it is here. We booked their rooms which were great to stay in and get ready for the wedding. The organisation of the team who looked after us made the day very special and we were very pleased with the choice. But other than all this, they have one big win over other venues. I have been to several weddings since the pandemic and found that portion sizes now resemble something from a tapas menu. However, unlike tapas, you only get one of each course, leaving you hungry and unfulfilled. The food at Wickwoods is exceptional, and the portion sizes are a proper meal size. The sticky toffee pudding we had for dessert was large enough for one per table, and we received one each. I thought to myself, what trickery or witchcraft is this being so large. I expected it to deflate once I stuck my fork into it, but no, it was the real deal. After eating it, I sat back, buttons on my suit bursting, and watched as guest after guest entered a state of food coma. Now that, my friends, is what a wedding meal should look like. Well done Wickwoods, very well done!

We have just had a nice lunch in the Glasshouse restaurant Wickwoods Hotel, we dressed up for the occasion as we felt such a nice restaurant deserved it!! Unfortunately we felt that the experience was spoilt by some guests lunching in rather drab grey dressing gowns! Never mind, elsewhere when we next celebrate a special occasion!!

Hi David, Thank-you for taking the time to review your visit to the Glass House Restaurant at Wickwoods Country Club. I hope that you had an enjoyable meal, although I am sorry to hear that you felt that other guests wearing robes spoilt the occasion. We have different clientele visiting the Club, from members, hotel guests and spa days for example, and aim to find the right balance to ensure an enjoyable experience for all. It is disappointing to hear that we missed the mark on this occasion for you and I will pass on your feedback to management for their consideration. We hope to welcome you back to the Club again soon. Kindest Regards, The Wickwoods Team

We attended a wedding reception at Wickwoods at the weekend, the venue was lovely, the staff friendly and attentive and the food delicious. The evening disco had a wide choice music for all ages. We also stayed the night in one of their rooms, which was clean, comfortable and very spacious, the breakfast excellent. I can’t praise the staff enough for the effort they all made in making it such a wonderful day for the newly weds.

We had our wedding ceremony and reception at Wickwoods in October 2023. We only started planning it in April 2023 and the whole team at Wickwoods made the process so easy and seamless. Jen and Wendy are amazing and know their stuff, they made the planning process and the day go without a glitch. We felt that our wedding was in such safe hands with the staff at Wickwoods, all the staff on the day were absolutely amazing. We had so many compliments from our guests at how slick and efficient the staff were, they were just flawless. We cannot thank the whole team at Wickwoods enough for everything they did, we had the best day!

Since David Lloyd took over Wickwoods Gym, there has been a decline. The gym, once well-balanced under the previous owner Lee, now feels cramped with unnecessary equipment like giant racks for kettlebells and balls. The free weights area is squeezed into a 10 x 10 ft space, making it challenging for users. Additionally, new machines are introduced without addressing the need for essential core muscle equipment. Personal trainers further crowd the area during peak hours. A sensible solution would be to prioritise high-demand equipment areas , relocate underused items, and create more space. There is a large room next door they could move the large racks of accessories to create a huge spacious feel like it was before , resulting in a more enjoyable functional area like before Charging £150 a month seems very excessive for a gym that is too small use I’m a 55 year woman that mainly plays tennis but I use enjoy using the gym to keep some muscle tone, but it’s too unappealing since the change This constructive criticism aims to encourage subtle changes and restore the gym to its former appeal.

Good Afternoon Claire, I am sorry to see that you feel that our current gym set up is not suitable for you. The space within the gym has always felt somewhat challenging to ensure that we are getting the right balance between making the best use of the space whilst remaining inviting. Our next door studio currently has back to back classes held in there due to our demanding exercise class schedule so we are limited with any further space we can utilise. That being said, as we are now part of David Lloyd Clubs the gym facility is currently being considered for redevelopment to improve on both the environment and equipment. Once this has been finalised, we will be sharing this exciting information with our members. Claire, if you do feel that you would like to discuss this further, I would be more than happy to give you a call or meet you in the Club. Please do call me on 01273 857567 or email info@wickwoods.co.uk. Kindest Regards, Natasha Cottrell,

Service was appalling. For a customer prepared to spend several thousand pounds on a party at Wickwoods I wasn't expecting to be ignored. I rang Wickwoods on Sunday Nov 5th (at 11:05) and asked to speak to someone for a quote for a party. I was informed that I would need to speak to the events team XXX or ZZZ, neither of whom were working that day. I was informed ZZZ would be in the next day, Monday, and both in on the day after, Tuesday. I sent an email to the events team after the phone call on Sunday. I asked for a price for the 'Large Party room', 100 guests, buffet, 7pm – midnight. I finished the email by saying -I will ring you on Monday as I wish to have this agreed asap. Feel free to contact me on 12345 678 123. Note I asked to be quoted 'as soon as possible' and I also gave my phone number so I could be contacted quickly with a price. On the next day, Monday, I rang Wickwoods at 16:00, as I'd had no response to my email and asked to speak to ZZZ. After a brief wait the receptionist informed me ZZZ wasn't answering her phone. I explained I had sent an email the previous day asking for a quote for a party. I gave the receptionist my name and mobile number. The receptionist said she would pass on the message and would have ZZZ return my call. Sadly, ZZZ couldn't be bothered to return my call.  After 7 days, despite sending an email and phoning I had no response whatsoever. Not even an acknowledgment of my email. This clearly isn't just a 'lost email in the system' as I reinforced my enquiry verbally with a phone call and left my contact details. This incident does the David Lloyd brand no favours. Needless to say I have gone elsewhere for my party.

Please accept our sincere apologies Huw. As said in my email, we strive to provide prompt and attentive customer service, so it is disappointing that we failed on this occasion. All enquiries are highly important to us, so an investigation was carried out to understand what went so wrong with yours. Unfortunately, a response was drafted, but it failed to send. Understandably, we have lost your business, our apologies again, I hope that your celebration is a success. Best wishes, Management.

Got married here in June 2023. Lovely venue. All our guests commented on how nice it was. Food was lovely, bar staff were great. Wendy & Jen were very helpful & always kept us upto date with plans. Luckily we had great weather (start of heatwave) so we had use of the outside area & gardens. Nothing was too much trouble & everyone was on hand to ensure the day ran smoothly. Would definately recommend this venue for a wedding.
