We stayed at the old court for two nights at the weekend as we were travelling around the South West of England and wanted somewhere to stay near Bath and to visit Longleat from. I'd read nothing but great reviews on the accommodation and the host, Nancy and after looking at their website and seeing that it was actually an... More

Having just finished my exams, my friend and I went to Bath for a trip and The Old Court was perfect. Nancy was ever so friendly and helpful and the breakfast was delicious. The 'cell' are cute and quite an experience, the two big dogs were lovely and the small garden was the perfect place to sit and relax. The... More

Firstly we had a nice tour of Temple Clouds thanks to Google maps! For reference, The Old Court is on the side road opposite the petrol garage. On arrival the building is stunning and well maintained. We were greeted by the Hostess, Nancy who is Southern Hospitality all over; extremely friendly, welcoming and helpful. She took our breakfast order and... More

I usually stay in larger chain hotels but fancied a change... and I wont change back. Nancy (the little southern belle), was fantastic and nothing was a problem. I asked to change rooms as I didnt check what room I had booked upon booking via hotels.com. Then came the breakfast choice for the following morning. Even the ice water was... More

Having been tasked with organising my sisters hen do we picked the old Court due to the location, number of rooms and unusual nature. We were not disappointed ! - although quirky, and unusual in its layout - it was the perfect venue ! Loads of space, jacuzzi and sauna, all rooms well appointed, bathrooms all good, living areas spacious.... More

We were given a voucher as a gift and opted to use it on a "unique place to stay". The Old Court certainly is that! - very quirky and interesting. Nancy made us so welcome - nothing was too much trouble & we were able to have a look around all the intriguing rooms, nooks and crannies. Would definitely recommend.

We stayed for two nights. Nancy was very welcoming, nothing was too much trouble. Matt was equally attentive in ensuring that our stay was enjoyable. We stayed in the Judge's room, which was very comfortable and quiet. If you like big chain hotels - don't stay here! If you like something a little different, give it a try - we... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and were pleased to find that we had been upgraded to a larger room. Nancy, our hostess, was delightful and she immediately made us feel very welcome, with no request being too much trouble. Breakfast was served in the original courtroom - with high beams, large windows and a stunning grand piano. The food... More

Nancy and John made us very welcome in their lovely, quirky and unique guest house. If you want Holiday Express I suggest go to Holiday Express (=dull). The breakfasts were top quality and the house oozes charm with plenty of unexpected little twists and turns..and a concert grand Steinway to die for in the beautiful victorian courthouse.
