We too were on a Travelzoo deal, complete with evening meal on the first (Friday) night.
Overall it was excellent value, though not a 5* experience that is expected of De Vere, but that's probably because it is a relatively recent acquisition. There is huge potential to make this into a luxury destination, but lots of work to do (particularly on the grounds). The long driveway is not one I would wish to navigate in the dark as there are numerous large potholes. Reception staff were helpful and the room was fine, if a little small, though the bathroom was a good size. The dining room is very impressive and the evening meal was fine. Breakfast was a good quality buffet which was frequently replenished. No cold dishes (cheeses/hams etc.) were available, however, which is o.k. as long as you are not there for a longer stay.
Although the hotel itself is a little isolated, the overall location is great with reasonably quick access to the likes of Evesham/Stratford and the north westerly Cotswold villages.
