The breakfast list had to be chosen the night before, you ticked the various choices, but there was no alternative to the meat sausage, or bacon, which made the full cooked breakfast rather puny, and made me feel rather left out. Veggies not important to entertain? Cash or cheque only otherwise a 2.5% service charge is payable...not made aware at... More

I stayed in a lovely 4 poster room, very relaxing and full of character. It's a lovely walk around the village, perfect if you wish to bring your dogs. The staff were wonderful and very helpful. I'd recommend staying here again and I will be coming back!

Booked to stay at the Old Rectory as it takes dogs and is near one of our favourite places (Lacock Village). Terrible weather, and as arrival time is not until 5.00pm we arrived an hour early as ran out of steam walking round the village. Landlady was very friendly and did not mind at all. We were booked into the... More

I booked a two night stay at the Old Rectory in Lacock. As they were busy we stayed in the Vestry room first, then the Deans room (with the four poster) for the second night. Both rooms were fine. This is an old listed building and may not suit people who are used to the 'sterile characterless' conditions of say... More

Only a brief stay but very enjoyable, pleasant surroundings, helpful staff, wonderful old building, would recommend to anyone visiting the area. Short walking distance to the village which has some very good pubs with varied menus, wished we could have stayed longer.

We were very excited to spend a birthday weekend in the beautiful village of Lacock, and chose to stay at the Old Rectory. What a disappointment. Apart from the initial 'misunderstanding' that led our two night reservation being reduced to one only, we were lodged in the annex of the hotel, paying the same price as in the four poster... More

There are certainly two sides to every story. We tried to help this last minute booking by offering different accommodation to the B&B which was full which was explained and accepted. At check out there was no response at the door and our cleaner was in fact worried there might have been a problem. The room was not vacated for... More

Lacock is an extremely beautiful village. The Old Rectory is a magnificent High Gothic house set in large grounds at the entrance to the village. So far so good. The unfortunate thing is that the proprietors do not seem to realize what they have and how to use it. For example, there is a beautiful front door that is blocked... More

Stayed in the self-catering cottage (5 person) as a last-minute getaway. Looking at the website and photos, was slightly dubious about the space/sleeping and catering facilities. However, on arrival, was pleasantly surprised. Finished to a much higher standard than we were expecting, and the location was convenient (although the main road was definitely 'there'!). The kitchen was reasonably well-equipped, but... More

My husband and I have been staying at The Old Rectory for 23 years, the rooms are charming as is the whole building and we always receive a friendly welcome and the breakfast is one of the best. I love this place I always have and always will.

It's the great guests like yourselves who make the business worthwhile after 20 years. We really appreciate your comments. Hope you liked the new paint work in The Deans. More

One of the best features of this B&B is its location, just a few minutes walk from the centre of Lacock, so you don't need a car to visit the Abbey and Museum, nor to get to the restaurants in the evening. The Rectory also has good Wi-Fi service, which is a great help as mobile reception in the village... More
