I've stayed here 3 times now in the last year. The hotel is old with lots of character. The rooms are named after authors which is a nice idea. The first 2 times I stayed here I had a room on the main road and as I'm a light sleeper this wasn't ideal for me. There are rooms away from... More

We booked a room in this hotel because we were attending a wedding at Westonbirt School and it's perfectly located to get there easily. First impressions - not a massive building but packed with character. From the old stone floors to the massive fireplace in the bar to the beams, slightly wonky windows and not to mention the amazing countryside... More

We stayed the George Elliott room overnight Friday 21st November 2014. On arrival we were given a friendly welcome and taken straight to our room. The room was well prepared and clean with en suite shower/toilet and all facilities you would expect. The premises are full of character and features, a real fire in the bar created a warm and...

Quiet, lovely place, but what makes it special is the owner Don, who is very friendly and helpful. We got the dates wrong bu mistake, but Don was very accommodating, and it helped that rooms were available. The place does look a bit tired, but clean and tidy. Beds average. The other highlight was the food - delicious, and helpful,... More

Bodkin House hotel is a beautiful big old building, but it's definitely seen better days and could do with a million pounds spent doing it up. It really is pretty tired. The WiFi was pretty patchy even in the (few) areas that you could connect to it - no connectivity in the rooms and I had no mobile signal at... More

Spent an extremely restful Saturday evening and night at Bodkin House. Yes it is situated outside of a town but is ideally placed for many attractions ie Bath, Tetbury, Westonbirt Arboretum to name a few, but if you are looking to "get away from it all" it is perfectly located. We were kindly upgraded to a superior room which looked... More

We spent a long weekend at the Bodkin built around a wedding that used the hotel as a base for guests and the various celebrations that surrounded the event. We found the host and his wife very accommodating and engaged in the whole celebration. The rooms were comfortable, the breakfasts excellent and the facilities provided for the lunch, tea and...

The Owners certainly have not learnt from 'The Hotel Inspectors' visit, where Alex Polizzi triend in vain to break the negative & ill mannered approach, they give to persons entering their Inn. Its obvious that they are not suited to running an Inn or that of a establishment that means, welcoming & being polite to people/guests, he more so than... More

I took a party of four to The Bodkin mid-week for a light lunch and we all thought it was pretty good. I went back with my wife last Monday just for another light lunch. What a difference! My fish was still swimming - in oil! The chips were reconstituted potato, not fresh potato chips, golden crisp outside, soggily soft... More
