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

Family of 4 had a first class meal. There was a varied, well balanced menu and all the food was freshly cooked, and this was supplemented by prompt, attentive service. My only criticism, and this is minor, is thaton a quiet evening in the restaurant, background music would have been of benefit. Our first visit here, but we will certainly... More

We so enjoyed a Valentine's evening at the Shaw Country House hotel. The food was fabulous and the live music was very entertaining. I would recommend the food and the service most highly. We didn't stay the night as we live locally. We have been to the hotel several times for meals and wedding receptions...we have never been disappointed with... More

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...
