The Manor
Reviewed 7 December 2012

I think this place deserves a second review from me. We've used the Manor for quarterly business meetings for the last 3 years. Our delegates love it as this isn't a corporate place, it feels like home.
The hotel is being upgraded very tastefully and every time we go back it gets even better. The new management are friendly, attentive and clearly on the ball. Food is tip top and the staff at all points are professional, friendly and smart...
I'm so very pleased to see this grand old manor house being carefully and thoughtfully restored.

A lovely boutique hotel. The main hotel is delightful with wonderful restaurant & bar. A wonderful experience. Service is first class. The only slight issue is that the rooms in the coach house need updating. Sadly they let down the first class boutique hotel. Despite this l thoroughly recommend hotel. It's a nice touch if class so different to modern chain hotels!!!

I've only recently discovered this absolutely wonderful hotel and its restaurant. The approach down a tree lined avenue, glimpses of the exquisite grounds, sheep grazing contentedly in its meadow by the lake, set me anticipating pleasurably. The sensation continued when, on pushing open it's beautiful ancient studded front door one is led into a broad welcoming hall, with easy sofas and chairs, logs crackling and flaming in a beautiful fireplace, and a cosy bar off to the right. Given the choice of dining in the manificent Baron's Hall, complete with Minstrels' gallery and superb linen-folded panelling, we opted to dine in the beautiful Georgian Morning Room, overlooking the exquisite and extensive grounds, which we later enjoyed exploring. Our lunch was superb, the delightful staff welcoming and attentive to our every need and we lingered in the beautiful ambience reluctant to leave the comfort of our bay window table. However we stirred ourselves sufficiently to explore the rest of this beautiful old Manor House (it was originally an Abbey), parts of which are 900 years old We certainly plan to return, and have in fact booked a Christmas Day lunch there, and I cannot wait for what I know will be (upon opening that magical front door) a joyful and welcoming Christmas scene before our eyes!

Room Tip: Did not actually stay there on this occasion, merely lunching in the exquisite dining room (in fact...

We recently stayed at the hotel for a wedding. The wedding was well organised and the staff friendly and the food exceptional. However, the room we had was in the adjoining coach house was very average although the bed was comfortable
The bathroom was however freezing with a non-working radiator, cold tiled floor and no heated towel rail. For a charge of over £100 per night we felt this was very over charged. We also thought a bottle of water might have been supplied. Hospitality tray was hidden in the wardrobe!!! Breakfast was lovely and again the staff efficient and friendly but the room let it down. I gather re-furbishing is in progress - do hope they get a move on in the coach house!!!

Thank you for your fantastic comments and constructive feedback. I am pleased to share with you that your comments have helped us to identify improvement areas. The coach house is undergoing final review and we have gone as far to find a date when our contractors can go in a spruce up the rooms with fresh carpets, fabrics and get the bathrooms up to a great standard. The negative part is though that the price will increase in line with the refurbishment.

Our doors are always open for you and your honorable guests and I look forward to welcome you back to The Manor, sharing with you the progress so far and future plans.

After being invited to celebrate a wedding at the hotel, we decided to leave our daughter at home and make a night of it! On arriving, we were struck by the beauty of the old manor and greeted by a grand entrance hall. The front of house staff were friendly and made us feel welcome before directing us to our spotless but rather dated room. We were disappointed that we didn't get to stay in one of the newly refurbished rooms, which we would have even considered paying more for. It was a shame that this was not an option at the time of booking, leaving us feeling as though it was a bit of a lottery as to whether we would have a nicer room or not.

We enjoyed a short stroll around the well kept grounds and read the complimentary papers over a tasty coffee and fresh mint tea, served promptly and courteously by Viktor, the perfect barman. After enjoying the afternoon and retiring to our room to dress for dinner, we had a couple of requests of an ironing board and hairdryer. Although these were brought to use promptly, it would have been nice if the hair dryer had been of higher quality and the ironing board slightly less 'used' looking.

The five course taster menu at dinner was rather delicious and the crisp white wine that went with it was delightful. The service in the evening was also superb and Charles demonstrated that he really is an asset to your dining team. Having had our fill of food and drink, we slept well and awoke to a peaceful start and lovely garden view.

The breakfast was in pleasant surroundings and the staff were attentive if not a little disorganised, with us being asked multiple times if we had ordered our breakfast and tea/coffee. In addition, the full english was well presented but unfortunately lacked the culinary execution and attention to detail of the previous evening's meal. For example, the sausages seemed leathery as if re-heated and the bacon was rather tough. The selection of continental items however, was good and the wide selection of fruit was fresh and tasty.

Essentially, we enjoyed this short trip and we are sure that after the full renovations have taken place, it will be a beautifully restored manor for weekend escapes. However, we believe that an increased attention to detail would make this an even more high end experience. For example:
- There was no information in the rooms leaving us unsure of breakfast times, checkout and reception contact numbers.
- They asked if we wanted a paper in the morning, we said yes but it never arrived (since we were not charged, we didn't worry too much)
- The staff were all very friendly and personable but seemed to lack clear direction (such as knowing which tables they were serving at breakfast)

We would like to visit again once the renovations are complete and look forward to seeing the finished article. The manor really does deserve a new lease of life.

Room Tip: Ask for the refurbished rooms.

Thank you for your fantastic comments and constructive feedback. Whilst we are still refurbishing rooms (one by one) and have just completed the 6th bedroom, the feedback you gave us was valid, informative and just. As it happens, all these points have been rectified although they were more complex than anticipated. The Manor will never make excuses for not delivering the Magic Touch and will constantly strive in listening and improving. Our bar of excellence is set very high and we will succeed.

We welcome the opportunity to open our doors for you and your honorable guests in the near future.

I suddenly decided to stay at the Weston Manor as the hotel I was originally booked into turned out to be less than good. It was my second visit and the experience was just as good as the first time. Lovely Oxfordshire manor house with wood panelling and open fireplaces.

Floors a bit creaky but that comes with the building. Nice rooms, wifi a bit patchy, staff very friendly and accommodating.

food excellent in the dining room or bar snacks in the small bar area.

Highly recommended

Room Tip: some rooms better than others for wifi - ask when you book

Came here to celebrate engagement weekend and for a bit of R&R. Beautiful manor, gorgeous grounds, really helpful (but not intrusive) service, and fantastic restaurant quality food. Our dog Max loved romping around the grounds - think it was his favorite vacation. 1 hour from London. This was a perfect weekend break - can't find any faults. Thank you!!
