The Cotswolds is an area of outstanding beauty and vast heritage, famed for its rolling hills, honey-coloured limestone villages and country café culture. The 18th-century Wyck Hill House Hotel & Spa in the heart of Gloucestershire is set in 50 acres of grounds with breath-taking views over tree-clustered fields of the Windrush Valley.
This four-star country house hotel mixes classic charm with contemporary flair, featuring traditional fireplaces and huge windows overlooking the Cotswold Countryside. Discover a tranquil spa and an AA rosette-awarded fine dining restaurant, alongside light and airy rooms with oak-panelled walls, cosy seating and ornate ceilings, under which you can relax with afternoon tea or a glass of your favourite tipple.
Wyck Hill House Hotel & Spa is situated just outside the market town of Stow-on-the-Wold and various other chocolate box villages, each offering a distinct taste of Cotswolds life. You are perfectly based to explore the area’s stunning countryside walks and landmarks as well as nearby galleries, museums and country parks – a great place to spend an afternoon.

Nice old Cotswold Stone building set in own grounds back from the main road so pleasantly quiet. Ample car parking. The Reception Area is a bit gloomy but rest of the building is quite light and our bedroom was large and pleasant, very large bed - actually two large interlinked beds but you did not disappear down the gap fortunately. No minibar but good tea/coffee tray with biscuits and bottles of mineral water which were replenished each day. Safe and hairdryer. The bathroom was quite reasonable, supply of good toiletries, we had a bath with fixed shower above and somewhat complicated controls such that in endeavouring to "run" a bath I got drenched from the shower and had to dry out my shirt. Good standards of housekeeping.
The bar area has french windows to the gardens and whilst okay is not especially welcoming such that we decided to go straight to the restaurant for our dinner. They have a reasonable range of sandwiches, bar snacks etc. if you did not want a full dinner but you would be missing out if you did not have at least one full meal there.
Quite a good menu choice with a couple of special dishes of the day, one meat and one fish. We were presented with an amuse bouche, a small cup of "proper" mushroom soup, before the starters. The ruby red devon fillet steak which I opted for, albeit at supplement, was well worth it and I thoroughly enjoyed. Food is well cooked and presented and midway between miniscule portions of some fine dining establishments and the portion size which more hearty eaters would prefer. Reasonable range of drinks, wines (limited choice by the glass) and spirits but no real ale on draught.
Good breakfast with the plus point that toast, tea and coffee are actually served to you rather than self service. Buffet for fruit, cereals and "continental" breakfast with cooked breakfast with a fair choice served to you but just one of each item e.g. egg, sausage, tomato, flat mushroom served to you so not too filling by itself. I imagine you would get more than one baked bean which was an option. Excellent coffee and butter served on a dish rather than fiddly little packets. One morning the orange juice ran out and was not replenished despite there being a good number of staff.
Friendly, pleasant and generally efficient European staff in bar and restaurant, I hate to think what would happen if they all decided to return to their homelands.
My wife advised her spa massage treatment was very good, I had kindly donated my 30 minutes under our Travelzoo Offer to her so she could enjoy a full hour.
Overall with the offer we had a most enjoyable couple of days at this hotel at a reasonable price with the food being the stand out for us.
This a lovely hotel near Stow on the Wold. It is in its own ground. The old part is beautiful with log fires and wood paneling. We had a lovely room number 33 which had a beautiful view. We had a three course dinner in the evening which was absolutely delicious. The hotel has a two rosette for its cuisine and it certainly deserves it. The staff are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. We are having lunch time party there for my husbands 80th birthday ln May and for this the hotel have helped so much. We thoroughly recommend this hotel
Staff v friendly, lovely food in the Restuarant although portions are very small.
The rooms in the main part of the hotel are very tiered and need redecorating. Shower was terrible with no seperate attachment and wasn’t adjustable so my hair got soaked!
Couldn’t watch the TV as no signal despite the duty manager ‘trying’ to set up another TV at 9:30pm on Sunday eve, no phone dignal and couldn’t stream my IPad so after a long day out we couldn’t even watch TV or a film on the I Pad.
The steam room wasn’t open and given it’s a dry spar it’s an integral part of what it offers!
The 24 hour bar had one Barman serving on a sat night!
I’m sure there are better places to stay for the money!
What a lovely hotel. Room and grounds were extremely nice. Staff were very welcoming and the lady who worked on reception was extremely helpful. Lovely breakfast and the staff were very accommodating.
