Crowne Plaza Hotel Heythrop Park-Oxford4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
I recently visited this hotel for a wedding (incl. an overnight stay): - nice, warm welcome from the reception staff (special mention to Jess for excellent customer service) - there are actually 2 main buildings within the complex (half is the Crowne Plaza) - room size was very good (junior suite); clean, had a bath and shower, sofa and large comfortable bed - I didn't visit the gym/spa but the golf course was nice (about 5 mins walk from the hotel) - location is in the countryside (at least a drive away to the nearest town/city) - good selection of food for breakfast; the hotel bar is also a decent size, relaxed and friendly - great location for a wedding, conference, or if you just want to be in the area. Overall I really enjoyed my stay here; highly recommended!
Picturesque! It was my first time to the UK & this hotel, though much away from Central London, was quite a calm experience for me. The hotel is away from the city, but it kind of helps take that break you need. Like most Indians, if you crave for Indian food even in UK, I suggest you carry some Indian food from India, as it can be quite a challenge, even at such a good hotel. Lovely stay, modern & Victorian style wings, the weather and such a cooperative staff, which I admit, I hadn't thought we'll find in UK. Kudos! The staff is very prompt. Be it check ins or helping you book a cab or as simple as finding a store for you to buy an international travel adapter.
Nice spa and acceptable pool for swimmers. Breakfast average and this convention hotel is specially advisable for golfers. Wifi coverage ... not good. I would suggest this hotel for late 60's loving to have a walk around and play golf or, also possible, runners.
The promise on Super Break was a stay in a large country house. The reality was the large country house with no bar, tea facilities or restaurant. Everything is serviced by a naff '3* Butlins' Crowne Plaza bolted on the side. The rooms are a modern addition with no atmosphere, no air con and no lift access (people with mobility issues beware). The first room offered was small and airless and we were unable to open the window which had opaque glass so we could not see out. The second room was a little better. The restaurant although adequate is modern, so if you are looking for style forget it. The only place to get a cup of tea is in a bar with football on TVs accompanied by cheering inmates. Our expectation of a classy character stay was not realised and although we booked for two nights we came home after the first night. Also beware the appalling signage which directs you all over the place except where you want to go.
The room we had was small but we arrived very early in the morning on our way through from a long trip. The staff found us a room very last minute and the room service and reception service were brilliant throughout the whole trip.
There were 30 of us , we were looked after really well, the staff at the golf club bar and leisure club were excellent and couldn't do enough for us . The restaurant manager at the brassiere restaurant cocked up, we had asked for a separate room away from the guests that wanted a romantic meal on the Saturday night this was agreed and didn't happen unfortunately one or two guests complained that we were too noisy but what do you expect with 30 blokes !! The Golf course was good contrary to other reviews, they had had an irrigation issue which now has been sorted the greens were good in places but you could see where they had issues , but overall a great setting and excellent value for money , the only thing I would say is you must have a buggy as very long between holes and they are not cheap £35 !! I would go back tomorrow rooms in the new part of the hotel were lovely , overall very satisfied with the weekend away .
Set in the lovely surroundings of Heythrop Park the Crown Plaza is a pleasant enough hotel. Clean room and friendly staff. Spa and pool are nice. We ate at the bar at Crowne Plaza and the food was below average. The children's pasta was closer to a soup and the adults cheese and pickle sandwich contained some odd type of grated cheese. The buffet breakfast was better. Be careful when booking though Tripadvisor. I paid upfront some time ago and then the hotel had no record of me paying so I had to pay again on departure. I checked my records and established I had paid twice. The hotel proved unhelpful in resolving the issue and it took 44 minutes on the phone to trip advisor for them to establish that I had paid twice. Clearly I should of taken evidence of me paying but it is hard to understand how the hotel had my booking but no reference of me paying!
Excellent Crowne Plaza, up to their usual standard. Fantastic grounds, free parking, excellent breakfast which was great value at £10 each. Dinner in the restaurant was good but not a lot of choice. The bar memu again was not brilliant. On the first night the barman couldn't give us decaf coffee but the girl on duty the second night had no problem!! Reception staff were lovely, polite and helpful. The room was spacious, clean and well furnished. All in all a superb place to stay. The main negative apart from the menu choices was that it's a mammoth walk to the swimming pool, we didn't even try.
Had another lovely visit to the Crowne Plaza. This time we took the family. Lovely friendly helpful staff. Excellent evening meal and wonderful breakfast. Lovely warm swimming pool. The grounds are beautiful. Also the beds are the extremely comfy.
This hotel is fine, the bedroom was ok apart from the garish lavender colour, dinner was fine but the breakfast was very disappointing. I was expecting more so I am quite disappointed and won't be returning
