Reviewed 24 September 2013 via mobile

We recently got married at the westwood hotel and had a wonderful day.

The staff were helpful and friendly.
The three course meal for the wedding was lovely along with the buffet food in the evening.
We also ate from the bar/restaurant menu the evening before the wedding. Everyone enjoyed their meal but service was slightly slow, although there was alot of us to feed.
We had breakfast to order one morning and the buffet the following morning. Couldn't fault either.
Merilyn (the wedding planner) was fantastic throughout the day, they set up the room perfectly and I was so happy with how they laid out all the things I provided. They also lent us their projector and screen to use during the wedding. I really could not fault the staff on the day.
You do not get good if any signal on mobiles at the hotel (not their fault) but was able to connect to wifi for free.
We were unable to stay in the honeymoon suite as there had been a leak but they provided a large family room for us on the ground floor which in all honesty worked out better. It was large, clean and comfortable. Perfect for all the people in and out of the room in the morning. Beds were comfy and shower was good. Nice big tv to entertain the kiddies in the morning.
Everyone was pleased with their rooms apart from room 4, it was very hot and stuffy in the room and considering it was one of the most expensive it was nothing to shout about.
Other than that one room everyone was happy.
Overall a lovely hotel, would recommend and would stay again.
They made sure our day was special and I can't thank them enough for that!

Where do I start. The cost was £165 per room per night, the same we paid for a much nicer hotel in every way just the previous week.

We waited at reception for what seemed ages before anyone came to the desk. The room was awfully small and to use the kettle you had to unplug the lamp by scrambling under the desk. The shower was hot then boiling, then hot and scalding! The towels are small. The bed mattress was most uncomfortable. During the night the room (30) sounded as if it was in a monsoon. The sound of a gent urinating literally above ours heads and the bath emptying down the pipe in the corner of our room was ridiculous.

The evening meal was poor but reasonably priced.

I will not be going there again- ever.

My wife and I were invited to a friend's wedding and we decided to stop overnight. They had booked a wedding package which included the ceremony, 3 course meal, disco and buffet in the evening.

It was a great day for the happy couple, and despite the weather we had a good time. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly, the food was good and the location and grounds were good. We had a comfortable room with all the expected amenities. We also enjoyed a good buffet breakfast the following morning. All in all a good stay.

My wife and I and adult daughter stopped here on our return from Devon for one night on the way to Heathrow. Great location, well-kept grounds, nice rooms and friendly staff - all for a reasonable price. Is outside of Oxford and part of the road is closed for construction, but it worked well for us.

The staff were very friendly and helpful from the moment we arrived to when we departed. They had good advice for places to eat and things to do and how best to get there (drive and pay to park or use a taxi and save if you are out for most of the day). Taxi cost around #7 pounds to city center. Breakfast was exceptional. The little touches: coffee and tea pots at your table, refreshed foods, attentive service.The rooms were freshly painted and evidence of recent maintenance. TV channels and internet ok. Floors are creaky and doors bang (but so do most hotels :) Well maintained gardens and views.

Clean, respectful, good value, great staff.

Room Tip: Ask for one that has been renovated.
