“Worth the stay”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

Good hotel. Food was amazing, especially the Wednesday Tapas night. The wowcher deal was very good value. Bar prices were reasonable.
The staff were friendly and helpful. But they didn't have much knowledge of the local area.
Of course Bicester Designer Outlet is just round the corner (by car)

Room Tip: Upper floor is quieter

Great hotel; very quiet, the food was excellent (both evening and breakfast) and beautiful location. I wish I could have stayed for longer! Looks even prettier in reality than on the website. However, get breakfast included if you are considering it - very expensive if you only want a small meal.

We stayed for 1night and had 2rooms the upstairs room was really hot and when we asked for a fan to cool it down was told they had only one and someone else had got it. The other room was very dark even with all the lights on the bathroom had only a half roll of toilet paper and one bath towel and one hand towel even tho there was 2 of us. The rooms were tired and dated, but were clean.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at Bignell Park Hotel.

I am pleased to note that you found your room to be very clean. We put towels in the rooms for each guest - on this occasion it would appear that the fact that there were 2 people in the room had been overlooked, for which I apologise. However, had this been mentioned to Reception, another set of towels would have been provided.

We look forward to welcoming you back to Bignell Park Hotel when you are next in the area when we trust you will have a more memorable experience.

We were disappointed with No air conditioner & no fridge. We were not advised that there will be a wedding which took over the relaxing areas of the hotel. Garden setting were nice but were not able to use them. The room was large but need to be updated.

We had eaten here many years ago whilst attending our daughter's graduation from University and decided as in the area to stay overnight. The hotel is in need of some updating - especially the bathrooms.
The food was ok but breakfast was a Monday morning and there was definitely a Monday morning feeling to the food presentation and service!

Room Tip: We had a four poster room overlooking the garden

I am pleased to note that you enjoyed your stay, but were disappointed with the breakfast. This has been discussed with both the Head Chef and Restaurant Manager who have taken steps to eradicate the problems encountered.

When back in the area, we hope you will once again visit in order that you can see the improvements made to both the property and in the service provided.

We booked this hotel through Secret escapes and on first look seemed a great deal. our communication from the hotel was poorly presented and written and sparked a bit of concern.

The hotel is in need of a major refurb lots of chipped and worn paint flooring needing replacement all sorts of unused furniture piled in cubby holes and the gardens in need of some looking after. Our room was in a newer pat of the hotel and was poorly insulated from noise coming from other rooms.

They cater for parties and from the location of the attached marquee there would be considerable noise to any part of the hotel.

We are now in a "budget chain hotel" and feel as though we are getting good service and value for money.

Room Tip: Sorry from our experience a room in the newer part is noisy try and get a room in the old section

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at Bignell Park Hotel.

I am sorry that you didn't enjoy your stay, and felt the hotel to be sub-standard and poor value for money.

Like all hotels, we have an on-going program of refurbishment which is completed over a period of time. Our gardens are a combination of formal flower beds and 'wild-life friendly areas with the vast majority of guests finding them delightful.
