We thoroughly enjoyed our Christmas get together at the Shaw hotel. The service was excellent and we really felt at home . The food was hot and delicious . Here's to another meal there :) we didn't stay at the hotel on this occasion.

Very friendly staff,owners couldnt have been more helpful. I have to say though, the overall decoration of the hotel is locked in the 80s. Bedroom I stayed in was of poor quality, along with bathroom with a shower cubicle I could just about get into !!! The food that everyone seems to be raving about in my opinion, was just... More

Stayed here middle of September due to working commitments in nearby Corsham. Our stay here was fantastic. We were greeted by a very friendly member of staff (I believe it was Emma, she was the one going to Mexico on the following Monday), who had time to speak to all guests despite working in all areas of the hotel (the...

The manager (Emma) was very welcoming and accommodating and ensured that out stay was comfortable. Rooms were a good size and modern with TV. Shower was nice (a bit powerful!). TV Lounge was exemplary, very comfortable and was home away from home. Hopefully will be visiting again for business trip. Thanks!

A lunchtime party of sixteen was handled with aplomb. Service was exemplary. Starters, mains and puddings were all fine. With regard to the mains, I was certainly tempted by the pork and chicken dishes that appeared either side of me, however my cod/prawns was first rate. There was positively no skimping on portion sizes and vegetables (boiled and saute spuds,... More

My wife and I stayed here for 1 night as part of our holiday visiting National Trust properties in the area. Very friendly staff and stayed in a nice large room, although it could do with a lick of paint here and there, but nothing that would detract from your stay. You MUST have a meal in the restaurant. Well... More

In the area for school reunion and didn't fancy camping, definitely had the better choice, very comfortable beds with lovely thick duvet and fluffy pillows. Good hot shower in the morning followed by a superb cooked breakfast, very lovely and attentive staff, excellent overnight stay, would definitely go back if school reunion number 2 is arranged.

Attended a friends wedding , the ceremony took place there also , the surroundings and venue were beautiful on one of the hottest days of the year. The food was exceptional having a 3 course meal in the afternoon that looked and tasted like something you would get in a Michelin starred restaurant. The buffet in the evening was like... More

There's a lot about this place that is good - attentive, friendly staff, reasonably good menu & good service in between courses. However, I can't sing their praises fully when it comes to the quality of the food. I had the roast pork & it wasn't the best I've tasted, that's for sure. I'd probably describe my meal as ok...
