“This was the best of the worst but I won't be staying again”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2010

I have been staying her for several years whilst on business. I have never enjoyed staying here as there is always something to complain about. The only reason for staying here is that the town is within walking distance so you don't have to drive. My most recent stay report is as follows - On checking in I was made to pay up front as I had cash, this was no problem but they never had any change. Room spelt of chips fat. It was room 6 right above the kitchen. The drinks in the bar are expensive and the bar closes early. The night porter will sort drinks but its a hastle having to go find him and then theres no ice available. On Checking out I had a bar bill to pay and again there was no change available so I was forced to pay by card. Check out took 30 minutes due to lack of staff training. The lady was very helpful and polite but was not up to speed with there systems and no one was on hand to help her.. This all made me late so I had to skip breakfast and pay additional money to grab a Mc.Donalds breakfast on route to the office. The service level here is not acceptable, and out of choice I will not be staying here again.

My wife and I stayed at this nice hotel during the end of May. Close to the hotel is a river which makes for a relaxing walk alongside, also Evesham shopping centre is a few minutes walk away. The car park is spacious and easy to in and out of. The hotel reception desk is quick and efficient, and all staff are very helpful and attentive, especially during meal times. All areas are very clean and tidy, the bathroom in our room, number 4, was very clean and new looking. The shower worked very well, and there was various toiletries in the bathroom room with good soft toilet paper. A nice thing was that the bath had a non-slip bottom for when using the shower. The bed was comfortable and we slept well during the night. The very clean room had the usual things, hair dryer, alarm clock, tea and coffee making facilities, and telephone. The décor in the bedroom could have been made more modern looking by putting up some larger and colourful pictures on the wall, and changing the cream lampshades which looked the same colour as the walls, to put more colour into the room. Perhaps lampshades to match the bed headboard and curtains would be a good move. Both dinner and breakfast was quiet and relaxing, and the food was very well cooked, with excellent attentive service.

To sum up I would stay at this hotel again. It is clean, quiet, serves good food, staff are very helpful, and is short walk into town. It is probably a good hotel for small gatherings, say wedding parties etc.

Stayed for a couple of weeks with work. Hotel generally as would be expected from looking at website. Up to date and functional. Seems few people eat in the restaurant in the evening, but bar meals are more than adequate. Breakfast served in restaurant and very quick and good (waiting staff very attentive). Rooms seems to have been refurbed in the recent past, bathrooms very tidy and showers very good pressure. Overnight porter seemed well up to speed on security (I arrived late on the first night and he was straight out to the car park to see who I was).
Two minor issues, firstly the towels they provide were very cheap and I ended up with fluff all over my body after drying!, and secondly sound seems to travel well from corridors and other rooms and it can be a bit noisy at night because of this (depending on who your other guests are!).
Internet via free wifi which worked well.
Overall fair deal and attentive staff.

Seen some bad reviews here but I stayed a week on business and slept well in a big spongy comfortable bed - which is my priority. Hotel faces the river in a town that avoids the tourist trap pretentiousness and prices of nearby Stratford - which you could visit in 30 minutes. Easy to find and lots of parking at back; good-size rooms; staff respond if you show good manners in return - they get some city weekenders coming here and treating locals like idiots. The Flacon Bar could do with a fresher meal offering - the menu looks dated in an area of elegant pubs.

We went to have a meeting at the Northwick. Oh dear - don't....The woman (very very scary) was perhaps the rudest person in a hotel you have seen outside Fawlty Towers. In fact it was like Fawlty Towers. We were most polite but we were told we were not welcome in the most obnoxious manner, so we went to spend our money elsewhere. Who would have thought there was a recesion on? Were they busy? Not a soul - no one else, but judging by the reception we received I don't think anyone would want to stay here anyway...very very odd

We are sorry to have read the negative review that you have written about our hotel.
We would just like to make it clear that we do allow meetings to take place in our hotel, all we ask is that a meeting room is booked with us and not our hotel lounge to be taken for granted as a meeting room.
We pride ourselves at the Northwick Hotel as being a very professional, friendly and welcoming establishment.

Stayed with our young family including our 6 mth baby. found everything about the hotel ok except for a member of the bar staff who would just about heat up our food for our baby and said he would just do it this one time so needless to say did not ask this member of staff again. thought he was quite rude and would never greet us with a hello when we ordered from the bar. apart from that had an enjoyable time with lovely playground for kids and room was ok, but for the money it was quite small for the family.
