Stayed here for the car racing at Silverstone.
Tried to stay here for all four nights over F1 week-end ie Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Every year we keep checking through the previous months and find the room rates are quite a bit more expensive than a normal week-end which is perfectly fair and typical with nearby hotels also.
Ended up booking 2 nights in Whatley Hall, Banbury and 2 nights in Holiday Inn Express Banbury instead as the room rates were available around £100/£120 which is what we try to pay.
Although rooms were booked kept checking on Wroxton House just in case dates became available because of a cancellation or similar, and was pleased to see the Friday popped up at the right price. So I cancelled a night at Holiday Inn and stayed here instead.
So this in itself suggests Wroxton House must be something special to justify the inconvenience. It is !
Firstly, the location in a small village just off the M40 near Banbury, with church bells, a couple of local pubs etc is very nice for a walkabout. There are plenty of parking spaces and you earn Best Western points.
The rooms are always spotlessly clean and very well appointed with everything you could expect. Reception staff are always friendly and welcoming.
A major draw is the food. With either a bar menu or a full restaurant there is plenty of choice,and the quality is really excellent. The staff are very friendly and professional too, especially the gentleman from France (?). I'm not very good with accents.
We overheard the conversations of other guests eating and they all had high praise. Some of them were actually staying at another Best Western in Banbury and had travelled into Wroxton just to eat here and have drinks. Whether this is a promoted link, couldn't say, but certainly they liked the dining experience here rather than elsewhere.
The menus are online, but suffice to say, our food was very well prepared and couldn't be faulted. There seemed a little more choice of beers at the bar this time.
The complimentary wi-fi worked very well and was speedy, the tv was fine.
So to sum up Wroxton House is definitely much better than the average Best Western Plus, it really is a very good country hotel and restaurant in itself. All the staff are excellent too.
If only it wasn't so hard to find a good value room rate during the F1 here we would book ahead here every year instead of elsewhere. Fingers crossed we'll be lucky again next time.
