Reviews - The Wood Norton

4Self Classified Hotel Ratings explained
Worcester Road A44 Wood Norton, EVESHAM, WR11 4YB
A fine Grade II listed Victorian house located in the Vale of Evesham with easy access to historic Worcester, Regency Cheltenham and Shakespeare’s Stratford-upon-Avon.
The Wood Norton is a boutique hotel with royal connections, having been built originally as a hunting lodge for European Royalty in 1897. In 2012, following a complete restoration, The Wood Norton will once again be at the center of hospitality in Worcestershire.
The fifty bedrooms will offer everything from stately three roomed suite’s in the hall to beautifully crafted bedrooms in Pear Tree Mews.
In the hall, The original oak parquet, paneled walls and exquisite fireplaces all vie for your attention – enter The Wood Norton Bar though and prepare to be dazzled by the specially commissioned pewter bar and the eclectic mix of old and new. In The Restaurant at The Wood Norton, superlative British cuisine will be on offer – nurturing local producers and ingredients - in a relaxed professional environment; both of these rooms looking out over the dining terrace or formal gardens and the view beyond – a real window on Worcestershire

With all of this style The Wood Norton is the perfect venue for weddings and any other kind of private celebration - board meetings, conferences and other corporate events.

The hotel has gone a recent refurbishment.the rooms we stayed in the annexe were still part of the historic building.high ceilings very large comfortable bed with a very high standard of soft furnishings.the hotel car park is on a steep slope so i had to drop my mother at reception before parking so not recommended if both the party have walking difficulties.the breakfast was superb very high standard using local ingredients but wasnt happy with bucks fizz thrust upon us as we entered dining room but thats just personal preference.

A lovely hotel - clean, modern and picturesque.
It was very difficult to fault this stay! Picturesque property and surrounding area, welcoming friendly staff, hotel rooms and facilities were clean and modern, and reasonable food.
Only a couple of negative points that I could pick up on really. Firstly, the hotel car park is a few hundred metres from the main hotel. It isn't a problem upon arrival, as you can unload in the drop off area, but when coming/going on following occasions, it's a little annoying. Especially when it's raining! The second slight fault we found was with breakfast on the first day (of a two day stay). Maybe the restaurant was a little understaffed, but we spent a long time waiting for our initial order to be taken, and then even longer until any hot drinks arrived. When the cooked breakfast did finally arrive, my partner was a little puzzled to find that she was only given a single poached egg and half a potato cake. Whilst she did ask for only these items from the breakfast, it seems as though common sense should prevail a little, and a reasonable portion of each be served. I took the entire cooked breakfast option, and was given the same sized portions of egg and potato, along with 8 other items... More annoying than anything though!

A hotel with a great future
Lovely setting (one can ignore the road) when mature the landscaping will be excellent.
Some teething niggles, but very comfortable, and well thought out. A fascinating building, which has great appeal. Any temporary glitches more than compensated for by the excellent staff, who strike just the right note.

A nice break
It was a lovely place to stay, it didn't feel like your conventional hotel as we were actually staying adjacent to the main building. Room was better then we expected and given that it only opened in Autumn 2012 there was good service all round. Though, it was a little too warm at times and no breeze when we opened the window, the lighting was little to dark in the room. Overall, it was a wonderful break with lovely restaurants nearby in evesham and worcester - we ate out as the hotel prices were too expensive.

Fantastic Hotel Excellent
A wonderful hotel with lots of potential. The hotel had been open 4 weeks when we stayed. A beautiful hotel with lots of history and original features that have been retained during their recent refurbishment
We stayed in the Pear Tree mews annex and the rooms were amazing, contemporary and very comfy. Food was wonderful we ate in the bar but the standard was restaurant quality and the desert was really tasty ! Service was excellent from all staff, especially the bar. The team there are very keen to make your stay a memorable one. The gardens were still being landscaped but we will be back to see how they have developed next year. Fantastic place!

not quite finished but exceptional
easy to find, arrived and could see there was quite alot of work going on landscaping gardens etc, little unsure what we would find but was very plesantly surprised to find a £4m refurbished had just been completed internally, with external work not yet completed but you could see the end result will be fantastic. The staff were incredibly friendly, and met every need. The accomodation was immaculate, (i think we were probably the first to use the room since redone) very comfy bed! Food was out of this world,
Really looking forward to going back here in future, If you like historical buildings the wooden panelwork and detail in the main building is amazing!!
One of the best!!
