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

I arrived late for a business stay and this seemed to fluster the staff slightly. The room was large, comfortable, clean and accessible so that was great. I place a great deal of importance on a quiet night's sleep and did not get this completely as the house is old and quite creaky, so people moving about above my room... More

Myself, my wife and our 3 year old stayed at the Old Rectory for two nights. Its the first time we have used a B&B with our son so were interested to see how it would work. The family room was great, it was certainly large enough for the three of us and the breakfast was excellent! I'm sure we... More

Lovely weekend visit, stunning big Gothic style house and grounds and great location. Very welcoming and loved the dogs, ruby and missy. Great breakfasts and one of the best scrambled eggs I've ever had!

Very nice location in the beautiful town of Lacock, Wiltshire. Building is not as old as the village, but has it's own charm. Rooms are large and well-equipped. Breakfast proposal is limited and not always well supplied. Breakfast preparation can take quite long. Wifi available, but not working. Street indications can be improved, especially coming from the South. Owner recommends... More
