Quiet setting, large hotel with great reception team
My husband and I stayed here for one night without the kids over a weekend.
We booked a suite which didnt have a balcony, as we thought they did (it was our mistake) but the reception team were fantastic (South African and an Aus woman) switched us really quickly to a much nicer, quiet, ground floor room and refunded the difference as it was cheaper. We ate a satisfactory room service meal and the breakfast was lovely . The gym and sauna were a quick walk away. Setting was peaceful and worth exploring
Short stay only
The only criticism is that the room seemed a touch warm and the air conditioning controls not as effective as they might have been.
As I only stayed one night I cannot comment extensively on the hotel amenities. However, the estate is impressive.
This hotel was a little disappointing for the price.
The room was very small with little storage space and was quite chilly due to the air conditioning. We didn't eat there as the vegetarian options were very poor. However the bed was comfy and the shower was the best we've had for a long time. The surroundings are beautiful as it is set in Heythrop Park which used to be a Jesuit College. Not sure I'd go there again

Very Clean, Good Food
Need more variety in menus.
Very comfortable bed.
Excellent shower, swimming pool, grounds. Most food very good but menu limited, especially for vegetarians. No choice of more traditional meals, and the one steak ordered was very grisly. But overall, the three days was very comfortable.
Expensive I felt they took advantage of game fair demand
Not for a quiet night's sleep
This hotel is in a quiet location in beautiful parkland with walks.
However it hosts corporate meetings each week and it becomes very noisy during the night. There are loud voices in the corridors and guest room doors banging. Some of the corporate guests over-indulge while at these meetings and behave in an inappropriate way. The stench of vomit could not be cleansed from one of the lifts. The hotel provides information on the measures taken to ensure you will have a peaceful night. Our final night of four was so disturbed that by 2a.m. we thought of checking out.
The large rooms are badly designed for longer stays with inadequate storage space, lack of seating and table. The breakfast selection was very limited without many of the cooked items normally available and the fried eggs looked too under-cooked to risk trying. Also commented on by a member of staff. The cold choice lacked yoghurts and marmalade was not available in individual jars. Having stayed twice at the excellent Crowne Plaza NEC Birmingham, who host many guests from events, the Heythrop Park Oxford was very disappointing. We had arrived after 2 nights at The George Hotel at Wallingford which was first rate in every aspect and having its own Tavern bar from which there was no disturbance. Obviously we should have remained there for the 4 more nights. Having explored the entire premises, the DeVere hotel next door looked more classical and would possibly be a better choice.
