We have just had a lovely weekend at Wood Norton with our friends. It hasnt been open long so their were a few teething problems (mainly no mirror in the bedrooms
) but the staff could not have been more helpfull. The food in the restuarnt was superb, its not cheap to eat or drink there but we felt the quality justified the price. Well worth a visit

Thank you so much for your endorsement of The Wood Norton. The mirrors are on my radar (still), we have been let down by suppliers but they should be installed very soon.
We shall hope to see you at The Wood Norton again before too long

Had a splendid afternoon out for my aunties 80th birthday. The hotel was set in lovely surroundings which we had a walk around. The whole experience was a pleasure from beginning to end. The service from the bar man was very attentive and nothing was to much trouble. The sandwiches and cakes were delicious and I wouldn't have to think twice about going again. Would defiantly recommend to others.

Have just come back from the hotel after my wife booked it for my birthday. Basically,I loved it as soon as we came up the drive. Its a gothic style victorian building with ongoing restoration work to the garden to restore it to a formal parterre style with large lawns overlooking the Evesham vale, river and a really decent sunset even in february. The whole place has loads of history, from french royalty to being owned by the BBC. All around, there are nostalgic photos. When you walk into the reception, its wood as far as the eye can see. From the floor, panelling, carved staircase going up to 2 internal juliet balconies and the wooden ceilings. If you have any interest in carpentry or wood carving, this is the place for you. There are history pamphlets to read at your leisure.The bar by contrast is more modern and contemporary with large coloured sofas. There is no draught beer so you are limited to the bottled selection. The bar snacks are very good, I had a club sandwich and it was huge. The daily cream teas are impressive enough as well with several different areas to relax in. There is also a snooker room. The restaurant is where the main meals are taken and as it is panelled, with the mood lighting its quite a romantic place to dine. The dinner menu was not extensive, but our choices were well made, well cooked and deceptively filling. The breakfast has a cold self serve and a freshly cooked full breakfast served to you.
Our room was 310 in the more modern mews annexe. Its a quiet room at the end of a corridor, so no-one walks past. You can reach it by walking up the slope from outside or going up the staircase and following the corridor to a door which is opposite the mews. The room was large with new furnishings, a well appointed large bathroom and a superking bed. There is tea making but no room safe. There is a very good info card in the room with all of the places to visit nearby. I did not see a room service card, so I do not know if they provide this service. One area I feel could be improved, is the entrance to the mews. The floor is littered with cigarette ends. it spoils the first impression. Some sand bins are needed here. Its more of an observation, I would not like to spoil my review with a proper complaint.
With regards to the staff, without exception, they were all well trained, friendly, courteous delivering hospitality and excellent service . Nothing was too much trouble.
There is ample car park space at the top of the slope with a check in area outside by the fountain
Apparently, this has been a travelzoo favourite and if these high standards are maintained, we will be back in the future to see the gardens in a more mature condition.
By mistake,I ticked the Fitness Centre. I dont know if they have one.

Room Tip: The mews are more modern and the hotel suites are traditional.

I organised Afternoon Tea to celebrate my Auntie's 80th birthday and cannot fault anything. The food was wonderful and the service absolutely first class. The staff were attentive and took and time and trouble to make sure my Auntie had a lovely afternoon - which she did.

Valentines Weekend, We just loved everything about it, the Building was amazing,gardens having a lot of money spent on them and im sure will be delightful in summer, stayed in Pear Tree Mews in grounds alongside hotel modern rooms with lovely beds and wonderfully quiet. Staff were outstanding very pleasant helpful and made you feel nothing was to much trouble. Dinning was very pleasant a great atmosphere with a 3 piece band playing, Food was Delicious but would have liked option to have extras ie vegetables.
Overall i thought it was one of the nicest hotel breaks we have had in a long time.
would give this hotel 9/10 only let down by lack of mirror in room, problem which was resolved straight away.

Great hotel. Excellent service by all the staff. Superb room. Very good food. Well done. The person who left the previous bad review must really have a problem, there is no way that that this hotel can be given a bad review.
