Historical Traveler Reviews Heythrop Park Resort, Golf & Country Club Chipping Norton
Wonderful Romantic Break
I have just come back from a wonderful weekend break at Heythrop Manor and what can I say. For anyone who has ever wanted to see what it is like to stay in an old "country house" this is the break for you. With a sweeping 2 mile long driveway, an original big hall and huge staircase to the panoramic garden terrace with small adjacent Italian Gardens, it was just the real thing!
To actually stay within the hotel was a little pricey, but the adjacent rooms (in the old conference centre) where clean and comfortable and to be honest we just spent our time lounging around, played a round of golf, or by just having high tea in the wedgewood lounge (with the original Wedgewood fireplace). If you were ever looking for a wow factor for a wedding venue then this would have to be it!
This may look like a bargin, it isn't
You may think that the Falcon wing rooms are cheap and available, and for Oxford that can be quite tempting. Don't be tempted, I find it hard to believe these rooms are offered at more than £20 per night. It is like staying in student digs in a 1970's polytechnic. Really really depressing. A real shame because the main house and grounds are quite nice, though again there are plenty of 1970's Poly' touches. Breakfast was ok, didnt risk dinner though as there is a fantastic pub in the village with great food.
We stayed in June 2004. Hotel looks great but rooms have no complimentary toiletries, tissues etc - not even a bar of soap! Leisure club is dirty and we were expected to use soiled towels that other guests had used - no clean ones. Rooms have no drawers either so where do you put your stuff?
Stunning service and surroundings, this place has it all!
I visited this magnificent hotel just before the end of the year 2003 and I have to say waht a fantastic place it is. The service was very friendly and professional and i sampled some fabulous cuisine in the restaurant. The room was exceptionally clean and spatious which proved excellent value for money. Thank you to all the staff who made my stay so enjoyable, I will return!
Great value, but photographs are deceptive
Just returned from a weekend at Heythorp Park. I read some of these reviews before going and was suprised by how different their experiences were. It now makes perfect sense. Heythorp Park is not so much a hotel as a conference centre. It looks like a small college with modern extensions. We had a room in the Falcon wing, which whilst a bargain, looked and felt like a Holiday Inn Express and was a five minute walk (internal) from the main house. They don't display photographs of the modern annexes or their rooms (Falcon/Archer). The main house is impressive, though a little cold and let down by cheap fluorescent lighting. It could definitely do with a touch of 'Queer Eye.' The restaurant was adequate and the staff were sweet. Buffet style breakfasts were very good. The staff/service in the rest of the hotel staff was at best inefficient at worst useless. If you are looking for a romantic country weekend, stay in the main house. The grounds and surroundings are wonderful. Swimming pool and sports facilities are good too.
Just returned from a lovely weekend away, staying in the main house of Heythrop. The grounds are stunning and the accomodation good (bathroom was fantastic), though perhaps in need of a little TLC. Ate breakfast and dinner here, and the food did not disappoint. Would reccommend this as an ideal getaway, though pay the extra and stay in the main house.
My family and I attended the restaurant at Heythrop Park on 24th January 2004 as a group of 11.
Manuel and the restaurant staff were excellent. We had a wonderful time and the food was excellent - very good value for money.
It was worth travelling to and we will definitely go back again.
Wonderful experience - couldn't be bettered
We booked the Christmas Package at The Heythrop Park Hotel.
From the moment we arrived we recieved 1st class treatment.
We stayed in the Falcon wing, our room was spotlessly clean and well proportioned - room service was excellent throughout our stay. All of the meals in the dining room were superb - a wide selection to choose from catering for every palate. The staff tended to our every need, in fact nothing was too much trouble. The price of the package £225 per person was excellent value for money. I have stayed in both The Savoy Hotel and The Royal Gardens Hotel in London - both registered as 5 star, but can honestly say the treatment I recieved at Heythrop Park was of a higher standard. I look forward to a return visit in the near future.
Terrible Hotel. Restaurant service/quality of food was awful. Had to walk out of the restaurant. Room was sub standard. Hotel is oversold..do not be fooled by the website...stay away.
Awful staff attitude
Juding by the appearance of the hotel you would expect things to be if not first class certainly to a decent standard. My room which was in the Archer annex had not been cleaned properly. there were a pair of dirty socks on a shelf left by the last occupant. Behind the door had not been vacumed for at least a month. my colleague had a similar problem with the bin not having been emptied from the previous occupant. No shower gel in thier room nor despite a complaint did it ever materialise. the staff in the restaurant were not knowledgable about what was available and all of our choices needed to be substituted as one or other items were not available. very poor i would not recommend this hotel to anyone.
