Bicester Hotel, Golf & Spa is a lovely family owned hotel spanning gorgeous perfectly manicured grounds with a spectacular 18-hole golf course. I stayed there for a lovely weekend review and had a wonderful time relaxing in the spa, having a facial as well as a fabulous gourmet experience with all the various dining options on site.
We took a train to Bicester Village and then it was a short car drive away.
If you are looking for a short retreat for some ‘me time’ away from the chaos of London, this is ideal! Plus if you stay here you get 10% off shopping at Bicester Village 😉 Tempted? Read on…
There are 52 capacious rooms and suites decorated in four various contemporary styles with stunning views of the landscaped gardens and the 18-hole Golf Course.
Mine overlooked the golf course which I was really pleased about as in Kenya my house and bedroom window overlooks a golf course too! Was fabulous opening the curtains in the morning and having this view.
You are encouraged to wear robes and slippers and make the most of the Spa facilities which we did and I loved how it was laid out on the bed for you.
The welcome brownies were utterly divine too!
The rooms are well equipped with a coffee machine, complimentary bottled water, a desk, two armchairs and a coffee table.
The bathroom is spacious too with chrome modern fittings, a large sink area perfect to spread out all your stuff, all the toiletries you require, fluffy towels, and a nice hot shower.
There are two restaurants, Grays Restaurant, where you can enjoy a more formal dining experience as well as the Portrait Lounge which has a more casual feel. Bar Nineteen is perfect for sports enthusiasts with games being shown on the screen here,
If you want a more active break, there are tennis courts, a gym and of course the golf course.
However, if you are more like me and all about the pampering, the Forest of Wellbeing Spa is fantastic and very popular.
I indulged in an Elemis 55 minute facial which was excellent, followed by relaxing time using the Spa facilities. There are hydro-therapy pools, a 20-metre indoor pool and saunas and steam rooms to keep you zen!
