For the price, this place was brilliant. The staff were great, the food was absolutely spot on and the bar service was top notch! Plenty of room outside, really nicely laid out downstairs and plenty of room. The rooms were great, huge comfortable bed to boot. I'd highly recommend the Shaw Country house for the price. Set in a great... More

Hotels can be sterile, soulless places to stay, so when you find one that feels like home, is comfortable and friendly with good food, what more could you want. Emma and the team are friendly, know and understand their customers and provide IMJ a perfect, non pretentious genuine and natural service. When you hear other guests complimenting the hotel and...

Dear Emma and your team. Thank you so much for providing my family with a brilliant Christmas meal. Nothing was too much trouble. When I needed to add another 7 diners with two weeks to go, you just smiled and said that was no problem! The dining room perfectly decorated. The food was beautifully presented and every dish was delicious.... More

The location is quiet but only minutes away from Melksham. The staff are friendly, helpful and efficient, the room clean and comfortable and overall exceeds what one might expect form a 2* hotel. The restaurant has a broad menu and all that I tried was excellent.

Stayed a couple nights at this hotel for week end break, Hotel comfortable and star rating correct as a few rough edges but compensated by the fantastic dinner (5 star) on Saturday evening, Sunday night we were the only guests so quiet and peaceful with a wonderful bar meal provided for us in the cosy bar area. Staff friendly and... More

The staff are the friendliest I have ever come upon anywhere and did I mention the food!!! Well just brilliant. Have now eaten here several times for Sunday lunch and evenings too... More

A wonderful, friendly and accommodating hotel. Nothing was too much trouble, we arrived to be warmly met. We had asked for an early dinner at 5pm, which was well before they normally started, but the chef was amenable and we had plentiful and delicious bar meals. The rooms were comfortable and well appointed and for an old farmhouse, well decorated.... More

Having just stayed in Switzerland where the room alone cost over £400 per night, I could stay here without denting my budget! The room was a little small but adequate and it had an en suite bathroom. The furnishings were a little past their prime but it was all clean, comfortable and warm. I had the "residents menu" which cost... More
