3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This is a relatively large family run hotel, in the process of careful modernisation, although there was absolutely no disruption or noise during our stay. The rooms are quiet, comfortable and modern, with great views over the forest. Bathrooms new and excellent. The bar was in process of renewal, and although the dining room looked a little tired, staff were... More

We stayed for the second time and were not disappointed. Our stay was as nice, if not nicer than our first visit. A refurb is taking place with the minimum of inconvenience to our stay, with the staff being as helpful as possible to overcome any disturbance we might have felt. The food was amazing and the staff are the... More

I stayed at the hotel with my mother in November for a spa break. The hotel (and room) are tired in places but was thoroughly clean and comfortable which is all that mattered to us. I would recommend eating at the hotel restaurant. We had a three course meal which was delicious. The scallop dish I had as a starter... More

My partner and I stayed in November (apologies for late review!) for a special birthday treat for me and we were not disappointed. Yes the hotel is getting tired in places like carpet which could do with a jolly good clean or replace but the appeal is the fact it is simply cosy, comfortable and relaxing. I couldn't have asked...

I really enjoyed my stay here. There were extensive refurbishment works going on but that didn't detract from the overall experience. Due to the works there was a makeshift bar in what appeared to be a spare lounge, but fair play, for what I paid I really couldn't complain. Fabulous outlook, and well groomed hotel. My only slight whinge, which... More

We were passing by a few months ago and had lunch here. We really enjoyed the bar area and food and so on our next trip decided to stay here. However when we arrived we were very disappointed to discover the bar we came back to see was under reconstruction. I really feel we should have been informed of this... More

Dear RSC778 We are very sorry to read your review of your recent stay with us. Sometimes the precise timing of works like this refurbishment are a bit fluid and I can only apologise that on this occasion the work on the lounge coincided with your visit. We thought that the lounge and bar we created in the Savernake and... More

Booked this hotel on a Travel Zoo offer. We got a warm welcome at the hotel when we arrived with our dog. The food in the restaurant was excellent along with the service. Breakfast was very good with a wide choice. I was very interested in the history of the hotel which I found in the room folder. We didn't... More
