How to Get There
Third time staying at Wyck Hill on their lazy Sunday. Another lovely stay, food is fantastic, service impeccable and main house has beautiful public rooms. Spa service excellent too. Would definitely recommend.
Stayed here for two nights as our children had booked it for us as an anniversary present. We stayed in one of the Coach house rooms which are a 100 yard walk from the main house. Not really a problem and away from any hustle and bustle. The room was excellent (even if the bathroom door needed some maintenance to make it work properly). Big room, dressing room, hall and bathroom. Nice and warm and cosy. However the main house is tired and needs updating. Very dark and dingy with lots of old wood paneling and furniture that needs refurbishing or replacing and old messy carpets. Typical of this was the conservatory blinds which have been so discolored by sunlight that they should be thrown away. Look past this and the food was more than acceptable and the service adequate. The bar wasnt always fully staffed and the beer choice was awful and very expensive. (£5.00 for a pint of flat Stella or the same price for a can of the new re-invigorated Guinness. which is nothing like a proper pint of the black stuff) A few people have mentioned about the inadequacies of the 'dry' spa and getting to it so I wont reiterate their comments. Yes it does all need up grading. However we enjoyed our stay but would not go back unless the place has a make over. We turned off our moaning heads for the weekend and had a nice relaxing time but there are much better hotels around for the same price. This could be a lovely place if the right owners invested in it and bought it into the 21st century
This is a lovely old manor house and overall is very nice but definitely in need of some TLC. We could not fault the staff who were all very pleasant and welcoming and the food in the restaurant is excellent as is the service.
However, our room was away from the main house in a building called the orangery. The bed was nice and soft with nice quality bedding, but the furniture was cheap and tacky, chipped and scuffed, carpet was worn and dirty looking and the curtains were thin and cheap and the room overall was very small as was the bathroom. I think if a few quality furnishings and fittings were placed in this room it would soften the blow of being housed in what I can only describe as the cheap seats. Would I stay here again? Yes if I could get a room in the main house.
We recently enjoyed a 2 night stay in this lovely hotel. The location is perfect with superb views and very peaceful. Our room was huge with a king size bed and massive bathroom. It was also a bonus to actually have a bath rather than just a shower! The public spaces were charming (our favourite room was the library, wood panelling & a log fire). The restaurant served delicious food both breakfasts and evening meals. All credit to the waiting staff and kitchen staff who did a brilliant job. The receptionists were very helpful & courteous. We had a minor issue with the heater in our room that was sorted out promptly and efficiently. We enjoyed a lovely walk to Bourton on the water with written directions supplied by the hotel. Stow on the wold was a short drive away. In all a great stay in a delightful hotel.
From the moment you walk into this hotel you are made to feel welcome. From the open log fires burning on a cold autumn day in reception, to how all the members of staff treated us. Nothing is too much trouble at this hotel. We stay in room 12 in the main house, which was very large, well presented, had everything you required and overlooked the side gardens. Saying as the hotel is setback from a busy road we didn't hear any noise at all from it, it is so peaceful here. The food is very good and caters for gluten free guests which makes it much easier for myself. Homemade biscuits are served with any hot drinks you purchase and my husband said they were amazing. They have a lovely bar area with a log fire which was delightful. I absolutely loved my stay here and will be back.
