From the minute we arrived at the hotel nothing was too much trouble. By the time we booked out we felt as if Emma and her husband were now our friends.No matter what you wanted and no matter what time you wanted something every thing was done with a smile. The hotel is spotlessly clean and the rooms have everything... More

This is a very pleasant, gentle, country hotel, set well back from Bath Road and therefore not troubled by traffic noise. There is plenty of parking space. The rooms, lounge, bar, and restaurant are all comfortable and the garden area is ideal for fine weather. The staff are friendly, helpful and enthusiastic, as are the owners Nick and Paul, who...

We booked this last minute on a spontaneous trip to Air Tattoo and a visit to the south. This is an amazing place, beautiful countryside very quiet. The rooms are a good size, very clean and well kept. The area outside is idyllic, lovely patio area to sit. The breakfast in the morning is awesome, lovely fruit and cereal to... More

The room was small and we had an appointment with friends at 7.30 all they could offer us to eat were very expensive bar snacks. So we had a very nice Indian in town. Not disable friendly. I doubt we will visit again or recommend

Stopped here for two nights in July for a birthday party at the hotel. Excellent welcome and service throughout the stop. Rooms slightly tired... Nice shower tho. Lovely breakfast from 8 till 9.30. Nice grounds and function room for the event. Would use again if in the area.

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.
