Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mark3131 Fantastic hotel and great location for touring Cotstwold area
Fantastic hotel, rooms, staff, service, grounds and facilities great.
Fantastic location for touring the area.
This was our second visit here and will come back again.
Only negative is the expensive cost of breakfast (even the discounted price if bought on arrival @ £14.95) the problem is it is per person per day not per room and as we were 6 people it would be excessive.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mollyorange excellent
The service was very good as was the cleanliness and comfort of the hotel. The staff were very helpful and pleasant. The grounds were beautiful and well maintained.
We ate in the bar and the food was of a very good quality, just not that comfortable as there were not many tables, mainly sofas and low coffee type tables.
The breakfast was served in the restaurant, which is lovely, and there was a good selection of hot and cold food.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Margie55 Beautiful hotel and grounds, dinner expensive,not child friendly
We were really looking forward to our break as had not had a holiday for a while.The Hotel and grounds are beautiful, however very disappointing menus, no childrens menu and the options are limited and expensive, not good for vegetarians. To sit in the lounge area and have a coffee, tea and soft drink would cost nearly £9, we ate out as was cheaper, The leisure centre is a fair walk from the hotel, and if weather is bad then its not a good idea. The pool and spa were supposed to be state of the art, but very disappointing, was dark green in one end, obviously needed cleaning.
The staff were mostly unfriendly, we would say good morning and they just either ignored you or looked as if they didnt want to be there. Car Parking is also a way from the hotel, so best to park at the back of the premises and walk through the ballroom entrance,not on directions or staff instruction.

Great rooms . Good breakfast. All the staff were really good.
The bar needs some additional beers and I would eat earlier rather than late in the restaurant.
Really good surroundings and close to Woodstock, Stowe

First time stay at this impressive hotel with extensive grounds. This was overnight for a corporate event.
Very impressed with the running of the event and the standard of food at the evening dinner in the Ballroom.
Dining Manager was excellent and responded instantly to any requests from the attendee's.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bethan64 Disappointing
We were very disappointed with our stay for the following reasons:
1. Pool and spa not part of the hotel
2. Lack of information from check in staff
3. Room very small.
4. Bar area very cold and there was a lack of choice of food and quality was very poor
5. We had booked a package inclusive of breakfast. Every morning we were told that breakfast was not included, every morning we were told at reception that it would be sorted out. It was not and no apology in any form was offered
6. The quality of breakfast was poor and the restaurant was understaffed.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Baldrick1 Ideal venue & good value
This venue was chosen as we were playing Heythrop Park Golf Club but if you are in this area I would recommend it as the rooms were comfortable & a good breakfast. There is also a very good local pub / restaurant just outside the grounds.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lou2001 great nights sleep
Room was clean but bathroom a little dirty. Brilliant nights sleep. Was not happy with the cost of £60 for 4 breakfasts, my 13 year old child was classed as an adult for the breakfast but was classed as a child for the swimming times. The hotel is in a lovely setting and was close for the Cotswolds. Great modern interior.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Mel997 Good hotel and location, but poor breakfast
Hotel location was excellent with lovely way marked walks in the estate. Maps were provided at reception, which was a nice touch.
Hotel was modern and clean throughout and staff were extremely friendly and helpful at all times. The room facilities were very good, although bed was too soft for our liking. Air conditioning was noisy and sent a cold draught into the room making it very uncomfortable..
Breakfast left a lot to be desired - food was not hot enough, there was no choice of eggs and on 2nd day there were none at al!
In summary, the hotel was good, but fell short of expectations for a Crowne Plaza..

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Steve NW No twin beds available!
Felt a little too corporate.
I was unable to get twin beds, so had to share a double with my adult son, a little embarrassing and not much sleep.
We we're there for a wedding are we're supposedly offered preferential rates, although I find that hard to believe.
next door hotel looked lovely!

The breakfast was very nice and the view over the gardens fantastic.

Having parked immediately walk past the tennis courts which were overgrown and in a state of disrepair. Not a great first impression - would have thought better to maintain/offer as a leisure option or clear the site.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Mike-62 Excellent Hotel, Rubbish Room Service Menu
If I was on holiday with my family, this would be near the top of my list of hotels to stay at. Great location, comfortable spacious rooms and a good ambiance.
But on business I also need good room service so that I can do some work in the comfort of my room and this is where this hotel lets you down.
The room service menu is probably the worst menu I have ever seen in any hotel, which is particularly galling when you consider that this is supposed to be an upmarket hotel. It is also only the 2nd time that a hotel has refused to serve me food to my room from the main restaurant menu.
This is a shame as the hotel is excellent in all other aspects.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by amasri74 My Leisure Stay
Being a Platinum member, I had certain expectations when arriving to Crowne Plaza. Below are some pointers from my stay.
1. @ check-in, when I requested assistance with my language, the lady on the reception told me that she is the only available and she can not leave the reception, hence I need to carry my language to the room.
2. As a platinum member, I expected some attention and got none....the least typically is a fruit plater in the room. Only after raising this, I was given a voucher for a free drink @ the bar.
3. On the day of arrival, around 7pm, I rang the house keeping few times and never got a response, I even called the operator and did not get a response.
4. I requested for slippers (which is rather a standard thing to have in a Crowne Plaza room), the answer I got was that we don't have those in this hotel...we are a franchise and not a 'Crowne Plaza'
5. Bed sheets were not changed during my stay, until on the 5th day I kept a note in the room requesting changing the bed sheets.
6. The cleanliness of the bathroom is below par....hair was all over the floor.
7. When checking out, I was not even asked 'how was my stay' and whether I had any feedback....which is a typical question in other Crowne Plaza hotels I have stayed at.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BigKevDawg Not a bad stay
My suggestion is to get a room on a higher floor, as they are bigger. If you get a room on the ground floor, they tend to be smaller.
I would have given a 5-Star review, but one of front desk women didn't seem very nice. Her demeanor seemed to be very short and curt when you would ask her questions. It was almost as if I interrupted her while she was watching Orange Is The New Black, like the questions kinda....annoyed her. All of the other front desk seemed so warm, and friendly; but her's seemed so...cold.
Maybe it was just me reading into it too much, but I just didn't feel the "love" in dealing with her. There was also a hairy moth in my room. I am unsure of how it got in there, because none of the windows/balcony door opened. They were bolted shut. It took 10 mins to kill it, I'm not gonna lie I was running from it mostly. I got lucky when it landed and I threw my luggage at it.
The best part of the room was the bathroom; rain shower head, and clear tempered glass surrounding the shower. The bed was very comfortable, and I got some good sleep on it. Food in the restaurant was superb, although I was waiting for a refill of potatoes at the buffet and it took a long time. So much so that, I gave up and went back to my seat sans potatoes. The service in the restaurant was great though.
This place is so far from any city, you would need a car to get to it. The closest bus stops a mile or so away from the hotel. I would stay here again, the grounds were lovely; and with the exception of the "Ice Queen" at the front desk, the staff was very friendly and accomodating.

Mixture of business and leisure and this hotel was ideal.
My wife was competeing nearby in a horse event and my daugters were with her. I was working nearby and decided to stay here instead of in a horsebox!!
We all had a meal at the hotel and all the girls were able to use my room to shower and freshen up.
The staff were absolutley brilliant at this hotel and nothing was to much trouble.
I would definitely look to stay here again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by terrycti Great location and nice rooms
The location of the property is very nice, highly recommend if you like to go for walks, jogging etc. The rooms are contemporary, clean, nice bathroom shower. I would say the only downfall of the property is the buffet breakfast which is really quite sparse, not many items for a property of this standard, it was certainly disappointing.

Great location, comfortable room and bed. Food in bar was disappointing along with the customer service. However, had afternoon tea with family and friends the following day and it was excellent. Breakfast was also very good.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Whocares? Lovely Location
Ignore my comments on poor sleep quality that is down to me being a poor sleeper and no fault of the hotel.
Some member of the bar staff could be a little more attentive and remember that when there is a queue of people that the person who has been waiting longest should get served first - one chap nearly missed the cut off for ordering food because he was overlooked as someone cut in front of him.
Apart from that a lovely place to stay

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Old Adder Enjoyable stay
Booked hotel for week end stay to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary with children and grandchildren. All our expectations were met and the only complaint was challenges made by the bouncers presumably employed by the organisers of the celebrity wedding. Warm welcome at reception on arrival and the smiling helpful Spanish waitress was superb throughout. Both breakfast and evening meals offered very good choices and family took full advantage of swimming pool but not spa or golf. Hotel management were aware of the special occasion and a small gesture even if only a congratulations card would have been well received.Otherwise we all really enjoyed our stay and were relieved not to be disturbed by the 400 or so guests attending the wedding. We might well return at a later date.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by disappointed of Somerset Disappointing.
A pleasant room and friendly staff but ruined by the quality of food we ordered in the bar. Nothing like the description on the menu, when I questioned the chips, advertised as 'Rustic in the skins' duty manager quizzed the kitchen and returned to inform us they didn't have what was advertised. I've seen more appetising cheese in my food waste bin at home.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Plain Bob Poor suite, poor overpriced breakfast
Very poor design and overall look for a room in a Crowne Plaza. Breakfast choice poor compared with other IHG hotels I stay in regularly. OK paying for very nice dinning room and view, but food must match the promise this suggests.

Stayed at Heythrop last weekend using Priority Club points. What a good idea! Everything was just great. I won't go on with the superlatives, but just get there and enjoy a great modern hotel!
BTW food in the restaurant was fab!
