Review: The Best Western Plus Wroxton House Hotel, Cotswolds


Book A Stay

Escape the rat race with a weekend mini-break in the English countryside; country pubs, historic villages and fresh air. You’ll find the Best Western Plus Wroxton House Hotel, which is tucked on the edge of the stunning Cotswolds, more than delivers in terms of location and has that lovely country vibe too.


The 4-star hotel is located in the delightful village of Wroxton near Banbury in Oxfordshire on the edge of the Cotswolds. It’s perfect weekend escape territory for Londoners and you are just 3 miles from the M40. As well as the magnetic Cotswolds, you are well placed to explore Warwick Castle, visit Oxford and shop at Bicester Village. Don’t forget to stroll about the village itself and admire the thatched cottages; the young or young-at-heart will love the duck pond too.

Style & Character

Wroxton House is a pretty, romantic, chocolate box style cottage. The thatched 17th-century former manor house has been extensively, sympathetically and elegantly renovated. It fits the brief for a haven for your county escape perfectly.

Service & Facilities

If your visit has a business component, there are two meeting rooms and if the picturesque venue brings out the true romantic in you, they are licensed for weddings! There is complimentary Wi-Fi throughout the hotel and complimentary parking too. The staff are welcoming, friendly and attentive and really make the place special. The standard is evident as the hotel has earned the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence and has been ranked as the #1 hotel in Banbury and the #2 hotel in the whole of Oxfordshire.


There’s a choice of 32 guest rooms; all are luxurious with the expected luxury travel amenities and a bonus too – every room has a sitting area. You have a choice of the more traditional rooms which are located in the original house or the more contemporary in the new wing. Of course, it’s a personal choice but I’m rather seduced by the exposed brick and beams in the original house, plus the rooms are definitely not stuffy-traditional, more elegant with splashes of colour. You can request a double, twin or king room and can choose between Standard, Executive and Superior Rooms; all are lovely but the Superior Rooms would definitely suit discerning travellers as they are just that bit more spacious and refined.

Food & Drink

A relaxing fine dining experience awaits at the charming the 2 AA Rosette Restaurant 1649. The romantic restaurant has traditional oak beams and an Inglenook Fireplace and the delectable cuisine served is contemporary British and very popular; the food will definitely be a highlight of your stay! For a more casual setting and a lighter meal, check out the lounge bar; on sunny days sit out on the terrace and in the winter snuggle by the log burning stove. There’s also a bar perfect for everything in between, including a morning coffee, afternoon tea and of course a pre or post-dinner beverage or two.
