I took my boyfriend to the place to stay for his birthday and a trip to longleat, and before we had even left we had already decided we wanted to come back. A wonderful location, a beautiful quiet village with amazing views. The hotel itself was great, the beds were so comfy I didn't want to get up but as... More

I booked my first hot stone aromatherapy massage and facial which was achieved through the best of body oils from Decleor. Sarah, the massage therapist was a wonderful professional young lady who made me very welcome and at ease. She explained at every stage what she was going to do. The whole ambience of the building, massage room, the therapist... More

We came and stayed for two nights and we fell completely in love with the place. The bed was one of the most comfortable we've ever slept in with big snuggly duvets and blankets. The bathroom was very large and had a shower and a nice bath in which I can personally vouch for. The bnb's surroundings were breath taking... More

Room 2 has no eye-level window, so check which room you are booked into. No Wi-fi outside main house. I raised these issues with the owner/manager and I was moved to another room but still no Internet and a blocked shower. Okay otherwise but over-priced for what was on offer. I wouldn't recommend.

We are disappointed you were unhappy with your room but I am pleased we were able to move you to another room. Room 2 is enjoyed by many because it has a cosy, romantic feel and although it does not have a window towards the view it does have large velux windows making it a light and airy room. The... More

I stayed in this lovely B&B last weekend for one night with my other half and we enjoyed every minute. The room we stayed in was the 'Longleat View' room and, needless to say, it was lovely. The king-size bed was one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept on and had the best night's sleep in a... More

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay in Longleat View, we certainly feel the beautiful Edwardian style bed gives a very comfy nights rest. We look forward to welcoming you back hopefully in the summer when you can take advantage of the gardens and the BBQ area. More

This was my first B & B stay. The receptionist got a bit muddled, but we worked everything out. I went with friends, and we were escorted to our rooms (outside the main house). All the features were shown and explained. The rooms were very nice, clean and very roomy. The bathroom was very large and well appointed. The breakfast... More

Just got back from a lovely short break which wad not long enough. Sam could not do enough to make you welcome even booking us a table in the local pub. The best breakfast and lots of choices and times. Can't wait to go back and stay longer next time.

The staff at the place to stay are very welcoming and the rooms are spacious, clean and nicely decorated. We had a folder in our room listing a couple of local restaurants and places to go - this was very handy as we turned up late afternoon ready for dinner! It also aloud us to plan a trip out for...
