Just a lovely place to stay with excellent service, food and atmosphere. Every thing just 'Perfect'. The Horse Guards is certainly one of the best places to stay in the area, quiet but near to where you want to be. I would recommend this place to stay to anyone. Go and give it a try for your selves.

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at this fantastic little gem on the weekend. The customer experience was first rate, starting before we even arrived. We were attending a wedding in nearby Malmsbury and wanted to be able to drop our bags off and get changed a few hours before the designated check in time. The owners... More

My wife and I spent two nights here recently and we cannot recommend it enough. We have stayed at many places over the years and "The Horse Guards” is certainly up there with the best of them.

We stayed for one night and met up with some friends so we booked both of the rooms. They were immaculate, very clean, everything you would need including toiletries, flat screen TV, tea and coffee making facilities. Jeanette and Arthur were very welcoming and they really couldn't do enough for us. Food was lovely with a good choice of menu.... More

We had a great time staying at the Horse Guards with our 2 dogs, the food and beer were excellent, we loved the room we stayed in, and breakfast was also excellent. Arthur and Janette are very friendly and run a pub like a pub should be run, we will return one day soon.

We stayed for one night as we were visiting the local area. The room was immaculate - exceptionally clean, tea/coffee facilities in room, flat screen tv and free wifi. Very comfortable bed.

Stayed for one night and wished it was more. The room we had was excellent, the local ale, the wine, and especially the dinner all matched the accommodation. A real find. Just wish I was more local so that we could visit more often.
