“Charming Place, Charming Village, Charming Natalie!!”
Reviewed May 27, 2012

Normally like many, I would not touch a Best Western with the proverbial electric cattle prod, as in my experience, they are almost always drab and disappointing. Left with no choice on this occasion and reading good reviews, I gave it a try and was not disappointed. I agree with all the plaudits and cannot comment on the problems that occur with weddings, although clearly in a place this size you would be incoveniened by any party booking. The only small niggle is that the bathrooms fans are powerful, the walls not too thick and unfortunately they are on a timer. So, when your next door neighbour maybe has had too much to drink, or prostate problems, then the fan could be annoying as he/she (not prostate problems of course with the latter!) visits the bathroom.
All in all a great little place, well kept, clearly the better for, so it seems, having a hands-on owner and good food. This topped with an absolutely charming receptionist called Natalie (why can't my son find a girlfriend like her?) made this a comfortable stay away from home and I wll be back. Perhaps I will bring my son next time to see what he thinks of Natalie and she of him!

You may not be aware that all Best Western Hotels are individually owned and operated and BW is a marketing consortium of which we are a member. Best Western have a guest satisfaction survey, similar to Tripadvisor, called Medallia and the scores for each hotel are detailed on the BW website which may help next time you are looking to book a stay.
I'll have a chat with my electrician about the bathroom fans and whether or not we can reduce the time they are on so thank you for that piece of advice.
Hope to see you again soon.

We had a short break with the view to visiting Blenheim Palace and Stratford so the hotel was ideally situated. The check-in was very efficient and the room was beautifully turned out and spotlessly clean. The bed was very comfortable and the room facilities excellent. We had breakfast and dinner at the hotel and the standard of food was extremely good, they clearly have an excellent chef. Catering for a gluten-free diet was no problem for the restaurant staff, all of whom were extremely pleasant and helpful. My wife is disabled and the only minor criticism is the absence of any disabled parking spaces. This might be difficult at the entrance but the first few spaces in the car park could be designated for disabled parking. As I dropped her off at the entrance and then parked it wasn't a major problem. All in all a very pleasant stay and we would definitely recommend the Wroxton House Hotel.

Stayed at the hotel for a weekend with 8 friends at the end of April
6 of us were given rooms in the old part of the hotel.Our room faced the road but we had no issues with noise.The room was very comfortable, with a comfy bed and a spacious ensuite.
The other 4 people were housed in the newer part and had problems with wedding revellers on the second night of our stay.However, we all had a great stay....the staff were very friendly and helpful. We had DBB on both nights, and as we were a large party we had our meals in a private room, which was a real bonus. The waitress was so nice. The evening food was very good, but the breakfast was not so wonderful...think better quality sausages would be good and some beans, for some one like me who doesn't eat mushrooms and tomatoes!!!
I hope we can return one day!!
Thank you.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the old part of the house...then you wont have issues with late night noise.

We have just got back from a weekend at The Wroxton House Hotel. We got married here 5 years ago so celebrating our anniversary. The place and the people seem to get better each time we visit and we have never been disappointed with any aspect of our stay (other than no beans with breakfast).
The staff all seem to be happy in their work which is reflected in the attention to detail and nothing being too much trouble.
The rooms are spotlessly clean and they have a terrific chef who produces a wonderful menu.
We would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a relaxing country retreat within a lovely village setting, but only a short distance from Banbury.

Room Tip: If you want traditional make sure you ask otherwise may be in the new block which whilst excellent...

Thank you for your lovely comments and I'll be sure to pass them on to the team. We are very fortunate that many of them have been here for many years and their knowledge of both the hotel and regular guests is invaluable.
I also want to let you know that we always have beans available for breakfast so next time just ask the restaurant team and they will organise it for you, then your visit will be just perfect.

We stayed at this hotel over the May day back holiday weekend, firstly the good;
Lovely setting.
Lots of old world charm.
Mostly helpful staff.
Plenty of parking.
Tidy bedrooms well decorated

and the not so good,
If there's a wedding on at the hotel and there were both nights we stayed don't expect much sleep before 1am. Yes the music stops at midnight but the guests don't stop partying and the walls are a bit thin.
Our room no 12 was a bit small.
The flow rate of the shower was a joke. If you want to get wet stand outside in the rain.
The hot part of the breakfast was a bit limited (what no beans and fried eggs this is England!!)

All in all ok but with a few tweeks could be excellent.

Room Tip: Good luck finding a quiet room if a weddings on. They are a bit quieter in the old part of the hotel...

Thank you for your comments regarding your recent stay with us. I'm pleased you liked the hotel, the setting and the attentive staff. However, I was disappointed to read that you experienced some 'niggles' which I am pleased to have the opportunity to address.
We do have a policy of ensuring that any guests who book with us are informed if we have a wedding or function in the hotel, with music and having checked your reservation I can see that you were made aware of this at the time of booking. We allocated you a room at the opposite side of the hotel to the function to minimize any disruption and I can only apologise that some wedding guests were noisy when returning to their rooms, despite signs at the entrance to every bedroom corridor asking guests to be respectful of those that may be sleeping.
With regard to the pressure in the shower I have no explanation as it is not a problem we have experienced before. I have however got a plumber on site today and will ensure he investigates.
I do hope you will visit again perhaps on a quieter night and enjoy our excellent hospitality.

We recently had our wedding reception at this hotel. Our room was lovely, spotless and our bathroom gorgeous. All the staff were very helpful, friendly and proffessional nothing was ever too much trouble. We are so pleased we went on our first impression and chose this hotel as it lived up to expection and actually excelled, we cannot praise this hotel enough and definately hope to stay again. Breakfast was excellent so much choice. A perfect English hotel with staff to match and in a beautiful setting, I would definately recommend this hotel.

We stayed for two nights in April and will most certainly be going back. Our room was spacious with two large wing backed chairs, bathroom with separate shower cubicle and bath. A balcony supplied the icing on the cake.

Food was of a very high quality with service to match.

Wroxton is a beautiful little village of thatched buildings and a duck pond!

Room Tip: We chose an executive room.
