I booked this hotel as it had a swimming pool and some great reports also the value I got was better than almost all the other hotels in the area.On arrival we were greeted and provided with our keyteddy , you certainly will not miss this. Adjourned for tea in the beautiful gardens and this was a good choice. After tea went to room (40) to change. The room was vast and had everything you would need, bath separate shower cubicle huge bed and fridge and tea/coffee making etc. Had to pass the Sinclair C5 in hall , tempted to try but maybe the croquet and minigolf would be an obstacle to it. Called in to bar in evening and found it cosy and relaxing, tried to catch them out with a favourite drink, most hotels have not even heard of it but, of course , at this hotel there was a choice of two types ( creme de cacao)The Malt Whiskey cupboard was to die for. Slept well in a comfy bed and so missed the opportunity to have a swim . Then breakfast,,, wide choice and the main course was freshly cooked and certainly did not seem to have been in any bain marie ? Big sausage and succulent bacon with trimmings and freshly fried egg Yum Yum The staff must do 24/7 and yet all were friendly and welcoming.. Will try to afford a weekend next time. The other big advantage is the amazing choice of board games and books so if the weather is inclement it does not matter here ,.just curl up with a good book and a malt and the day will pass. Thanks to all the staff for a superb stay...

Room Tip: I liked room 40 but we did not have a chance to look in the other rooms.It had a double aspect and w...

We stayed one night in this hotel and found it very nice. It was set in a lovely garden and we found the reception and other hotel staff very friendly, helpful and professional. Our room was on the top floor and was very nicely decorated and very clean. The bed was large and comfortable with plenty of room to put things and best of all it had a small fridge which contained a bottle of fresh milk (which as I hate the little packs of UHT i really appreciated) and also a bottle of spring water. My husband appreciated the mini caftiere and coffee provided. The room had a small 14" CRT TV with a freeview box attached but unfortunately we could only get one channel. The free wifi was nice but connectivity was erratic. The bathroom had big fluffy towels, as well as rubber ducks and a book of bath humour to read while soaking. The breakfast was lovely with lots of choice and nicely cooked and presented. The room keys were attached to old teddy bears which was a nice idea but we didn't particularly want to cart a teddy around with us so managed to temporarily detach the key.
Although the staff were very professional, the owner of the hotel was the opposite. He was present when we checked in and by the time he had shown us to our room he had insulted us 3 times. I think his comments were supposed to be witty but I actually thought that they were very inappropriate. The Welcome Pack telling us about the hotel was obviously written by him as it was full of information but was also full of "amusing" comments. On top of the fridge was a notice saying that they put the milk in the fridge because "if its left out it will turn to cheese" and everywhere there were notices saying what guests could do or not (though i did agree with the no mobile phones in the dining room one). I went to the ladies loo and discovered more quirky decorations which although the loo itself was spotless, made it appear rather tatty.
The hotel was very nice but reflects it owners personality a bit too much. I did like the whimsical touches such as the teddies and the frog themed bathroom but i thought it was overdone. I would stay here again and would recommend it but would warn people that it is not a standard hotel and to prepare themselves for its owners idiosyncratic quirks.

I feel I must have to write this review because this is one of the most unique hotels we have ever stayed in .
ROOMS : lovely and clean , lovely decor , white fluffy towels and all the little extras you would get in a 5 star hotel let alone a 3 star . Fully equipped with lots of teas , coffees , biscuits , shower caps ,soaps , shower gels etc .A room key with a difference .ours was mellors a full sized teddy named after one of lady chatterleys lovers
MEALS : well was very nicely presented and tasty . The dining room was beautiful and elegant and the full English breakfast the following morning was very filling . All the staff were lovely and waited on you hand and foot .
LOCATION : at the end of the road is the river however Evesham main town was about a 15 minute walk . Beautiful well maintained gardens . However the room was a little noisy due the the bar located within the north wick hotel having a live music event all day and night .
STAFF : all the staff were lovely and accommodating the lady on reception showed us up to our room and told us where the pool was if we wanted to use it costumes provided if you haven't packed your own .The manager does seem a bit wacky reminding me of fawlty towers but this shows his eccentricity in his hotel .please go in the public toilets there were fab
We had a lovely nights stay here . We would recommend and we would stay again . This hotel should be more than the AA 3 stars due to the little extras you get . Well done to the management ,the waiting staff the reception staff and the chef we will be back

We came across this hotel as a late booking via booking.com The hotel is an experience it is themed through out and does appear very cluttered however you can see it is all thought out and not just Radom. The cleanliness of the whole hotel is exceptional which is an achievement and must take a lot of dedication and hard work to maintain. On saying this the dining room is very calm and tastefully decorated making eating at the hotel very pleasant although a little expensive on the drink side. We did have a small blip with one of our meals which had to be replaced however this was done with no fuss and very professional.
The child friendliness of the hotel is very tangible and we will endeavour at some point to go back with our granddaughter. The soul of the 'Evesham' is with out doubt it's owner who you will either like or dislike we liked him and found his personality a honed act that made our visit memorable. One last word The quest Toilets in bar lounge are a must to visit!!!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Tudor Room which was very comfortable and we viewed a family room that was perfect...

I've been meaning to write a review of a wonderful night's stay at the Evesham hotel,late last month.I and my wife had been very underwhelmed by a "chain type hotel" near Gloucester which was in a terrible location as regards actually finding it..... particularly in the dark!! The place was soul less and despite an expensive re-furbishment,it was sterile and a 4 star let down.Anyway we literally stumbled on the Evesham Hotel after taking a wrong turn whist taking an intended whistlestop look at this town.Now as we had felt unfulfilled by the previous 2 nights accomodation and still quite stressed by it all (despite the delights of visits to the Cotswolds beautiful locations) we decided to enquire as to whether they had a spare room for an extra nights stay.We made the call and we fell lucky,the lady on reception was lovely and friendly...she looked us up and down then announced that she was going to put us in the "safari room"!!,..then proceeded to hand us our door key attached to an ample sized,one eyed teddy bear named Esmerelda ! She then personally showed us to this themed room as we passed an array of teddies and family friendly toys ,books and pictures,not to mention a drinks cabinet with an amazing collection of spirits.The room was delightful and appealed to my own sense of both humour and eccentricity. It had been lovingly designed by the descendants of a soldier who had fought in the "Boar War" and was a lovely tribute to somebody special.Above all the character and curio's,was an immaculate bedroom and bathroom that was a credit to owners and staff with a "good heart". We received a light knock on the door within a few minutes from the receptionist with a fresh carton of "proper milk" to deposit in the discreetly positioned silent refridgerator in order that we could enjoy a proper "brew".The selection of coffee,tea,Cadburys hot chocolate even extended to Columbian coffee beans and a perculator.Little touches that mean so much and are most often ignored.After a fiasco trying to get a table at a local restaurant which i have also reviewed,we rang to see if the hotel could squeeze us in for our evening meal...not a problem and what a fantastic ,fine dining experience in a tasteful and classically appointed dining room.The evening was rounded off by coffee and liquers in the superb gardens and grounds of this wonderful old place and after a great nights sleep, breakfast which was served fresh and piping hot was faultless.... as was everything and everybody at the Evesham..People who make derogatory remarks about places of such character and old style traditional fare with great British tradition are the losers. Hopefully both me and my wife will be back time and again to this children friendly haven......Afterall,we were all children once and some of us are gladly always going to be children at heart !!

Room Tip: The children and parents will love the themed rooms but the whole place was a delightful experience...

It was my sons wedding on Saturday and a problem with the booked hotel meant we needed to find somewhere at short notice, the Evesham hotel reception staff could not have been more helpful they had five rooms available which is what we needed.

Eccentric at first a bit off putting but this has to be the best hotel I have stayed in, and I have stayed in some of the most amazing ones around the world. This one is right up there with them. We had the tropical room with fish tank below the sink, pictures of fish swimming on the walls around the bed and a ceiling hanging in blue waves above the bed. When I woke in the morning it was like I was scuba diving. Three of the other rooms were also themed Latin/roman, Alice in Wonderland, and Barcelona I will not spoil the surprise for these y will have to visit yourselves. But magic was one word that sprang to mind.

We ate in the restaurant for dinner and the food was brilliant and as already mentioned on other reviews the breakfast was very good and a huge range of cereal. The wine list well you need to ask for it! And see if you can lift them.

During dinner I suddenly realised I had been here before, the teddy bears had not appeared at that time, the main man was still John though, I also managed to work out how long ago it was, 28 years, I really do expect to be back but will not take another 28 years!

If you want a warm, eccentric, sometimes bizzaar welcome this hotel is for you, if not why denigh yourself one of life's experiences.

First impressions are: teddy bear theme, cheesy humour; this place is so weird. MUCH more importantly the hoteliers have done everything possible to make your stay enjoyable. There are hundreds of books if you want to read, loads of board games, a decent beer, endless cereals at breakfast. The room was comfortable (but duvet next time please!) with lots of choice of tea, coffee, chocolate etc. Dinner had a great menu in a chandeliered dining room though it was a bit nouvelle cuisine with smallish portions for highish prices. Cooked breakfast was great and it was wonderful to watch the single working men, each sitting opposite the teddy bear to which their room keys were attached. Thoroughly enjoyed my one night there. They even have a swimming pool though I did not sample that.
