Attractive hotel inside and out. Quickly signed in at reception and up to our pleasant room. No need to book evening meal. It is worth staying here just to eat! The food is absolutely delicious, plentiful, well presented and only just managed to squeeze in a dessert. Excellent value for money. Breakfast didn’t let us down either. There are two... More

I attended a surprise birthday party held at the hotel. I stayed 2 fabulous nights. There is a sitting room, dining room and bar on the ground floor. The hotel rooms are up narrow stairs and quite a narrow hall, which could be off putting for some. I stayed in a lovely double room by myself. I had a comfy... More

Ten of our family stayed here on 6th June for one night as we were attending a family wedding in Melksham. Receptionist very friendly, all our rooms were very clean and comfy beds. Breakfast was cooked perfectly served on hot plates with hot toast. Plenty of tea. Lovely setting and a sunny day. Would definitely return.

We booked into the Shaw Country Hotel following favourable Tripadvisor reviews and we're really glad we did. From the moment we met Emma at reception, customer service was top notch. Our room had a four poster bed and jacuzzi in the bathroom and was clean, spacious and comfortable. If we'd really set out mind to it, we could have found... More

This hotel is in need of a makeover. Our room was clean, but certainly not luxurious. Our bed was two singles, but comfy and clean. Wallpaper is peeling and borders half way up the wall very dated. Small tv. Bathroom, very small and dated. No bath. Very small shower. Again a grey suite in the same vein of the avocado... More

We stayed here whilst visiting Bath this hotel was lovely. We were going to eat out but decided last minute to eat here. And I'm so glad we did! The food here was outstanding. Both the presentation and the quality were brilliant. The hotel rooms were large and the bathroom was good quality. Would stay here again.

From the moment we arrived nothing was too much trouble for Emma. We had a very warm welcome and were made to feel at home immediately. The room was spotless and we had plenty of large fluffy towels. The breakfast was first class and delicious. Top quality fresh food cooked very well. We will definately make this our first port... More

Seven years ago we were house hunting in the Melksham area, spotted the sign for the Shaw Hotel, went in for a bar meal and were turned away because they had just stopped serving lunches. This was our first encounter with Emma and her great customer service, as she was so nice about the whole matter, even recommending and giving... More
