“Short Break”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

We have just returned from a three day break at the hotel.Included within the rate was complimentary glass of champagne each on the first night and a cream tea which we took on our second day.These were both appreciated.
On arrival we were shown Room 2.This has slightly sloping roof and low beams in one place.These features my wife does not like plus as it was a walk up a few stairs including some into the room and as I am recovering from a foot problem we requested another room.This was provided in the newer part of the hotel.Although the room was smaller it suited us better.The bed in our new room seemed bigger.
The room had a bath with a fixed shower over the bath( Room 2 Has a seperate shower cubicle).
The two minor problems with the room ,which we have encountered elsewhere and would not rate the hotel down for were:-
Firstly one is asked to reuse towels where possible but the Towel rail did not come on due to the warm weather.Consequently the towels were still wet from the night before.Either they need a towel rail which is on a separate circuit from the heating or an electric towel rail.
Secondly the fixed overhead shower.My wife finds this arrangement difficult to wash her hair.A flexible shower head where it can be attached to the wall or used as a hand shower would be preferable.
The food was excellent except for the Rosti on the first night which was burnt and inedible.We asked the waitress to let the chef know but we received no feedback.
The choice of food was very good with 6 choices for each course.The only slight disappointment was that during our three night stay a few dishes were repeated.We did though manage to find something different each night.
On another review the Malbec is praised and we agree with that opinion.An excellent wine to have by the glass.
The service was excellent.All the staff were friendly,attentive and seemed pleased to help.
The room was cleaned very well.
There is so much to see in the surrounding area we plan to return to the hotel in future.
Despite the little problems mentioned compared to other hotels we have stayed in it warrants an excellent rating

Room Tip: We had room 29 and it was quiet although backing onto the car park. Room 2 is on the corner of the...

Thank you for the 5* review and for taking the time to write such an indepth and thorough report.
I am pleased that we were able to find you a room you liked which is the advantage of having lots of different types to choose from. Had you stayed in the original room the slipper bath did have a hand held shower attached to the bath. I do take on board your comment regarding the towels and we are more than happy to replace them on a daily basis if requested by the guest.
Look forward to seeing you again in the near future.

On the last night of our holiday Mark and I stopped off at the Wroxton House Hotel for dinner. We have been coming here for many years and as always the service and food were of the usual excellent high standard.

Mark, my husband had the poached pears in red wine and salad starter followed by loin of pork served with crackling, apple sauce, wonderful roast potatoes and a very fine selection of vegetables. I had the chicken liver pate for my starter followed by fillet of salmon with a lemon creme sauce, crushed new potatoes and vegetables.

Mark for his dessert had the bread and butter pudding with creme anglaise and I had the decadent dark chocolate tart with chantilly creame.

We had coffee and fudge in the lounge, until it was time for us to leave at 9.00pm

The staff were very friendly and accommodating for our family birthday party. There were 30 of us aged between 2 and 70. The food was delicious and those who stayed over said the rooms were very good. It is also a very well located hotel for people coming from all directions in the country. I would recommend them.

It was our pleasure to host your event and we were thrilled to see your enjoyment on the day. You must send us one of the photographs, taken on the day, of the whole family, some of whom, we know, had travelled thousands of miles to be here. Make sure you think of us next time there is a family occasion to celebrate.

I've been staying here on business for many years and there is no doubt that the current owners, John & Gill have made this a great place to stay. All the rooms are freshly refurbished with good quality linen and the restaurant serves excellent, well presented food and, unusually, room service food shows the same high standards with no hint of the frozen microwaved food found in other hotels. The staff at Wroxton House clearly take pride in the quality of service they provide and reflect the owners enthusiastic approach.

Thank you!!!!
We do understand that being away from home for several nights a week can be tiresome and boring so we do try and make sure that all our regular guests feel very much at home whilst still receiving the attention and service they warrant.

Nine friends from across the UK have just spent a fantastic 3 night reunion at Wroxton House. It was one of our most successful reunions ever - thanks to the attentive and friendly staff who went out of their way to cater for our every needs - even down to going to the local shop to buy yoghurt when one particular variety of fruit yogurt ran out at breakfast! The rooms were comfortable, spotless and well furnished. When there was a power cut in the area the whole place just carried on as normal as far as the guests were concerned. The quality and variety of the food served in the restaurant could not be faulted.The prices for everything from the D,B & B package to the bar prices were outstanding. Friends recommended this hotel to me and I will certainly recommend it to others. Thank you, Gill & John for making my life as organiser for the group so easy and for giving us such a super break.

Just returned home from a lovely three night stay. Can't fault this hotel in any way - staff are friendly and attentive, the room was comfortable, well furnished and spotlessly clean and the food, both at breakfast and in the bar and restaurant was excellent. We have stayed at six BW hotels - we like the character each has to offer, but this has to be the best Best Western we have tried yet! Thank you.

I'm not sure whether or not you know that all Best Western Hotels are individually owned and operated which makes each one of us different and unique. Unlike the large hotel chains where you could be anywhere in the world, yet the bedroom is the same.
I'm personally delighted that you enjoyed your stay and thank you for your enthusiastic feedback.

We booked this through the Tesco deals and were not sure what to expect but liked the area. We were absolutely delighted with our choice. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel so welcome and part of the 'family' of the hotel. It is a lovely friendly place with excellent food, staff and atmosphere. Met several 'regulars' and can understand why they keep coming back.
Gill & John are so welcoming themselves that it passed to all the staff.
Have been singing its praises to all my friends and would love to come back for another stay.
Thanks for making our short break so good.

Room Tip: We had a room overlooking the main entrance so no road noise and very comfortable.

Lovely to know that you had a fabulous week with us and felt very much at home - albeit without having to cook and clean...... the best of all worlds!!
I am very fortunate to have a great team that makes my job very easy (most of the time!!)
