If you’re looking for a cosy little Hotel in North Oxfordshire which is close to Stratford on Avon or Warwick, and is on the edge of the Cotswolds, then look no further than the Best Western Wroxton House Hotel, near Banbury. It was voted as the Number One Hotel in the Best Western Small Hotel Category in 2015.

Wroxton Village is a beautiful village, where every building is built with honey coloured ironstone and many have a traditional thatched roof including this hotel. I lived near here as a boy, but I failed to appreciate just how charming my neighbourhood was way back then.

My wife and I were privileged to be invited to an old friends 50th Wedding Anniversary Party at this Hotel recently, and the weekend turned out to be perfect in just about every way.

This pretty village is endowed with some lovely walks through the gardens and grounds of Wroxton Abbey which are accessible and free and there is a stunning and ancient duck pond in the centre of the village which is straight out of the Larkrise TV Series in which this area was based.

The Hotel is comfortable and welcoming with a small staff that are efficient and obliging. There is plenty of parking space and the surrounding garden is well managed and cared for.

The only disappointment was our allocated room (Room 11) which was an attic room with very limited space.

I am about 6 feet tall, and if I am paying £110 per night wedding rate for the room including breakfast for two, I should not have to spend my time ducking underneath the support beams, especially after sinking a few glasses of Pimms, Chardonnay, Champagne and Australian Lager.

The fixed mirrors are also in impossible places, especially for the ladies, who tend to spend a lot more time attending to their crowning glory and make up.

Ok, so the room and bathroom were tiny, and maybe I’m blaming someone else for my bruised head, but regardless I would stay here again at any time. Just not in this particular room.

The full english breakfast was about as good as you can get, with as many eggs fried or poached to order as you like. Plenty of cereal, juices, fruit or yoghurt. Continental, home made marmalade, fresh salmon. You name it. For a small country hotel, there was a lot of choice.

My friends were over the moon in the way the Hotel managed their Golden Wedding, and I just hope I can find somewhere equally as good in two years time for mine..
