How to Get There
The Hotel looks very impressive going by all the pictures we had seen and also when we turned up it looked very grand so we thought we were in for a great stay The staff were absolutely brilliant very friendly and could not do enough for you and very smart in appearance. Checking in at reception was very easy and quick and we were soon heading to our room. But after turning the first corner out of sight from the reception a few reality checks set in thread bare carpets and a large heavily water stained carpet in one of the corridors , there were a couple of ice buckets with empty bottles and wine / champagne glasses left in another corridor which were still there late the next day. I must say the room we had was very large with a massive comfortable bed. The bathroom well !!! Again it was very spacious but had really seen much better days the toilet seat was hanging off and no one could come and fix it until the next day. The sealant around the bath looked as if someone had used a brick layers trowel. The shower only gave hot water on a hit and miss basis and the final morning I gave up and had a wash at the basin which gave scalding hot hater ??? from a very rusty grubby mixer tap. We had breakfast in the conservatory which I must say which was extremely tasty and had a very good range to choose from. But was a little concerned when I looked up and see the condition of the glass panels and frames which seemed to be covered in a lot of dead flies and dust. Summing up after paying £385 for a three night stay I think was Way to much to pay for the condition of the place. Only trouble was every where else was fully booked so we were restricted on where to stay. Maybe this hotel could do with spending a lot of the over priced room fees on redecoration / cleaning and replacement of the many worn out items. Don't think I'll ever go back
We stayed two nights at Wyke Hill House Hotel & Spa. The staff, service, and food were excellent. Our room was spacious with fresh clean bedding and towels, and all the usual in way of facilities. Overall thevdtay was very good value, but corridors to rooms, and the rooms themselves would benefit from fresh point and greater sttention to detail regarding cleanliness. If this was attended to, this would be a fsntadtic hotel, rather than a good one.
My Husband and I spent one night in the Orangery in a patio room.
On arrival we were 10 mins early and were told our room was not quite ready. 55 mins later I went to Reception desk and was given the keys to our room, we both felt that the wait was a bit excessive.
Our room was at the end of the block and had a stable door, wood at bottom and glass at top. The room was unbearably hot and extremely uncomfortable and the fan supplied did nothing to cool it down, in fairness it was a very hot day. It didn’t help that the heated towel rail was on! The floor also felt really hot to walk on, almost like underfloor heating.
By evening it seemed to get much hotter and I phoned Reception to see if there were any other fans available but sadly there were not and the manager advised us to leave the top half of the stable door open all night as it was perfectly safe to do so, we were not comfortable with this and sadly spent a sleepless night.
The room itself was lovely and the bed very comfortable.
Our evening meal was really good and breakfast was excellent if fact we both said it was one of the best breakfasts we have had.
Had a great couple of days staying at this hotel. The location is great. Our room was a good size, clean and nicely decorated. Food was good as was the service. A perfect base for exploring the local area.
I stayed in Room 33, and sadly Wyck Hill House and Spa is very dated. There is no air conditioning, and the bathroom was particularly difficult and impractical with nowhere to place toiletries etc. The bathroom door wouldn’t close without being locked,and entering the shower was not only difficult but dangerous as the roof is angled and the shower screen doesn’t open enough to allow decent access, you tend to hit your head on the low slanted roof.
We had an iron but no ironing board ( I looked everywhere), and try as we might, had no success connecting with the free WiFi.
On the upside, the dining room staff were very friendly and attentive and the maintenance man was wonderful unlocking our room safe.
The Cotswolds is such a beautiful part of the world, should I be lucky enough to visit again I would stay elsewhere.
