“Spa Weekend with evening meal & breakfast”
Reviewed 23 January 2014 via mobile

We stayed here for our wedding anniversary in November 2013. All that I can say is that we had an amazing experience. We booked our package through spastayselect.com and got a great package. If I remember correctly we paid about £89pp and that included, room for the night, 3 course meal & buffet breakfast and full use of the facilities and a spa treatment each.

The service couldn't of been better, we were told check in was from 2pm but we arrived shortly after 11am and they got us out room straight away. We then went straight to the spa and used the facilities all day until about 5pm. We opted for a back neck and shoulder massage and it was amazing, the beauty therapists were brilliant and did it just as we had asked.

The dinner was beautiful and massive portions. Service was a little slow, we arrived at dinner at 7:30 and didn't get out until nearly 10pm but it didn't matter as food was great and to be honest apart from sit at the bar, there wasn't anything else to do.

Breakfast is help yourself. There was everything from smoked salmon, scrambled, boiled or fried eggs, cereal, pastries, full breakfast, fruit salad and yogurt and you could have as much as you like.

The grounds are absolutely beautiful, the main house itself is amazing and we had a long walk around the grounds/woods and it was lovely. If you ask nicely the concierge may take you for a ride in the golf buggy as he did for us.

All in all, definitely worth every penny. Nothing was too much to ask for as we couldn't of wish for a better anniversary weekend away.

Thank you heythrop x

We stayed to enable us to visit at the John Radcliffe Hospital and so was not meant to be a leisure break but was really pleased with everything. The reception staff were friendly and helpful. The room was newly refurbished, tasteful, comfortable and warm. The setting was stunning even in January and we really enjoyed jogging through the grounds before breakfast. Breakfast was lovely with plenty of choice and served in in the Brasery of the Crowne Plaza looking out across the landscape. All of the hallways have been carpeted and decorated to a high standard. My advice is to go now before the prices go up. I would have wrote the same review had I paid the same price per person as I did for the room. Thank you for an enjoyable stay and will definitely return

Oh dear oh dear.
What a shame. Very smart upmarket surroundings spoilt by poor service all round.
Considering there was only around a dozen tables booked, when we arrived we ordered our drinks and waited 10 minutes for them. Second round was even worse and the Manager came to chase up the order. The food was over cooked.
Just to add that THREE other tables all complained about the service. One table of around 8 had almost finished their mains when the last 2 guests were served. The lady was upset at having to now eat whilst the others had finished around her. Another table the chap walked across to the reception and asked what was taking so long and pointing to his watch say something about how long they had been waiting.
Wine was nice though and the young lad that served our table did his best to check up on us.

What a fabulous place, set in the middle of the Cotswolds, near Chipping Norton - an ideal place for a superb relaxing break.
There is a two mile drive from the entrance through beautiful countryside which takes you up to the breath-taking hotel and grounds (440 acres I believe). It is outstanding and easily beats any accommodation we have stayed at in England.
There is a huge golf course, a spa, steam room, sauna and pool to chill out after a long stroll in the grounds. Pheasants and wild life are numerous with lakes, streams and a picturesque river running through the grounds. The inside is like a stately home but it welcomes you with open arms to make your stay memorable. The restaurants are first class and you can relax and enjoy a fine meal overlooking the grounds.
The rooms are fabulous, spotlessly clean and very modern.
The grounds also hold a little secret (not advertised) a tiny zoo, where you can see camels, zebras, giraffe, penguins - not saying any more - see it for yourself!!!
This place is a MUST and caters for all. And VERY reasonable rates.
Can't wait to go back.

The range of reviews is very telling, the venue is undergoing change, hopefully for the better. I've ranked it in the middle as my stay was brief and didn't involve full use of the facilities. Good points - a sweeping tree lined drive fires the imagination with delusions of Grandeur, a sensation amplified as you let the Renaissance themed entrance hall envelop you and carry you up the theatrically grand stair case to the....ah well enough of that crud! Look, this hotel is clearly going for the pack 'em in approach, not wrong but disappointing. How so? Small corporate rooms, nicely done shower rooms, big firm bed but rooms small and basic, light bulbs - 2 out of five working but 3 replaced immediately on request. TV remote not working - batteries changed, no improvement. No Hotel 'menu', no list of services on the desk. No Room service was told they only do room service next door at the Crown Plaza. The refurbished Archer wing so very much the antithesis of the design aspirations of its namesake (unless of course he liked bland corporate battleship grey and puce with designer bathrooms that can't contain all the water) and reception that could be a little more forthcoming - you'll need to pull teeth to find out things like wifi code and so on. Check-out wasn't great either and I advise vigilance if part of the bill had already been paid. The a la carte menu was laughable - gammon served with my big fat gypsy onion rings was like a nightmare throwback to a Bernie Inn circa 1974. the wine list completely inadequate and vastly overpriced. On the plus side, the waiting staff were excellent, especially the head waiter. In fact, they were all doing a great job despite being continually harried by various tiers of stern faced higher management who insisted on interfering instead of letting them get on with it. So, if this is a quick visit for you, it's probably adequate but if it's for a special occasion, I wouldn't rely on the small rooms of archer wing - see what else is on offer. I'd go back though because it's clear that there's a better experience to be had here.

After a near disastrous start, sat nav !! but superbly dealt with by the deputy estate manager, Mr Dave Capes who we are greatly indebted to as we feel he went above and beyond his duty that evening.
We stayed in the newly refurbished Archer wing, room 401 and agree with the contributions from PRJ, Nillybum and FranciscoMacedo so we will not repeat them.
Being regular visitors to Devere venues throughout the country for the past four years, Heythrop Park is a welcome addition and we have no hesitation in recommending it and we look forward to our next visit.

I have to say well done to the new revised look of the old part of the complex. I stayed in the new look Archer rooms, really nice feel to the room, a lot of effort and thought has gone into the décor and whole look of the wing. Prior to the restoration it reminded me of a hostel. The big old fashioned wide hallway/corridors have gone to create a more cosy feel. With the added new carpets to finish the look it was a refreshing stay. The staff and management are clearly sending out a message of intent! A nice place to stay...

Room Tip: Archer wing is now superb!
