“Nice Setting, Interesting building”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 January 2014

Stayed here on a DBB package.
Room was set in a courtyard and was huge. Nice marble bathroom, free wifi and nice big flat screen TV.
The restaurant setting was really nice, but I found the food a bit too fussy /arty for my tastes. Definitely a case of style over substance, and I found myself wishing we had gone for the bar menu.
Their are plenty of little rooms in which to take coffee / after dinner drinks, and the building itself is quite special. Interesting to read about the buildings association with The BBC.
Would like to come here in the summer as I would suspect that the hotel would have a completely different feel

Went to stay at the wood Norton for new year. The staff are so attentive, nothing is too much trouble. I forgot my husbands evening shirt and they tried to find on for us. It is scrupulously clean and the beautiful bathroom was almost as big as the bedroom.The only problem that I could see occurring is that some of the rooms have literally no view. Our room 201 was lovely, with 3 windows, but 1 of them opened on the back with a loud extractor fan, one had frosted glass and opened on to a wall, the 3rd was of the car park. Not a problem in the winter but you wouldn't get much fresh air in the summer. Our friends on the floor below, who paid the same price, had a huge room with 3 huge windows, it was fabulous! But it was still a lovely visit.

A gorgeous hotel with exceptional ste and comfort.
The rooms are furnished with quality fabrics and furniture and a bathroom bigger than my lounge.
All staff were friendly and accommodating .
Our package through 'Off Peak Luxury' included 5 course dinner on both nights and was of an exceptional standard.
Booked for our 'minimoon' following our New Years Eve wedding, we will definitely return and can't recommend enough.

On the plus side, the hotel is in good order and well decorated - not tired like some country house hotels. The rooms are spacious with comfortable beds and equipped with widescreen TV. The food I ate in the bar was good if simple. Service from reception and bar staff was good.

On the minus side, I had to request to change my room due to the shower being fixed to the wall about 3 feet from the floor. I did not wish to either bend down or hold the shower head. I was moved to a nearby room on the same floor which had a shower above the bath. Being over 6 feet tall, this is often a bugbear for me as the shower head is rarely high enough, as was the case here. There was also a beam running across the ceiling halfway down the bath which isn't the safest feature when taking a shower early in the morning. Maintaining a constant water temperature was also difficult.

As noted by a previous reviewer, there was a relatively large gap under the door which let in light from the corridor - I could have had a much better night's sleep without this.

A minor issue was the restaurant - very cosy with a good menu if a romantic meal a deux is required but not so good for if you're with a colleague on business. To compensate, the menu in the bar could offer a wider range of food (steak & chips was the best option) for those not wishing to dine formally. This is fine for 1 night but if I was staying longer I would be dining out.

In spite of the above, I will stay here again.

Dear bad_u_turn

Thank you so much for your review, I read it with great interest, as it had me going around the rooms measuring how high the shower was! I couldn't find a 3 foot high shower anywhere, then investigated further and found you initially went to room 201. I had to have a little chuckle when I realised that you had not spotted that the room has a monsoon rain shower also fitted into the ceiling.
Lets leave the picture posted as a reminder that even 'photographic evidence' that Tripadvisor hosts can be slightly mis-leading to future visitors.
I do hope you come back as you suggested, so we can meet up. I would be delighted to show you around a few rooms and we can choose one that suits someone of your height for your future visits.

my email address is gm@thewoodnorton.com

With Kind Regards

Craig Webb
General Manager

Our office had our Christmas Party here. The hotel itself is beautiful, the rooms were good. There is a lovely spot by the fire for some relaxing. The staff were lovely and helpful after the event with queries. We had a great time.

Room Tip: The main house has more impressive bedrooms.

This is a lovely traditional manor house hotel. My room was spacious and clean, with a very comfortable king size double bed with plenty of pillows and cushions. However, the hotel uses an air heating system which was very noisy. Also, there was also quite gap under my door which let in light from the corridor outside during the night. It was a good job there were planty of pillows to block this out.

We stayed her with a group of friends on the sunday, room, Lunch, breakfast package, I have to say the hotel looks great, the food was very good and the staff were very friendly. It was a quiet Sunday as it was the one between Christmas & new year so we were on of only a handful of people in the hotel.
As a group we were rather loud but we sat in one of the many rooms around the bar so we didn't up set any other guests. The fire was burning and the staff kept it topped up, the bar food was also very good and presented well. I would recommend and look to return myself in the future, only down side is no Spa/gym/pool.
