We were given a voucher for Shaw Country Hotel. We decided to pay a visit on a beautiful day for Lunch. On arrival Emma took us into the bar and served us drinks while we looked at the Menu. The set Luncheon provided adequate choices of Starters, mains and desserts, we were spoilt for choice as they say. We were... More

A lovely country hotel, Emma was a brilliant hostess, always smiling, would do anything she could to help. Very friendly staff. Both rooms cleaned to high standard, decor as expected in old country hotel, food fantastic, can't say anything bad. All had lovely two night stay. Would love to stay there again. Thanks Emma for making our stay happy and... More

My goddaughter got married here in May and it was perfect. We stayed the night before and the night of the wedding. Setting is idyllic, beautiful grounds, delicious restaurant and accommodating staff. Emma and Nick work their collective backsides off and it shows in everything at the Shaw Country House. Room was comfortable with a strong shower, wifi in the... More

although the hotel is a little shabby and could do with refurbishing the hospitality and welcome was WONDERFUL! Nothing was too much bother for the staff. The room we had was small but adequate for a one night stay. We enjoyed a delicious hearty breakfast in the morning.

Stayed two nights over weekend with husband and another couple. Felt very welcome, cared for and totally comfortable throughout the stay. Food and wine was delicious and extremely good value. Emma was full of energy and always smiling from breakfast to last drinks in the bar.

Having deliberated on many wedding venues, we finally chose Shaw Country Hotel. I must say, Emma and Nick couldn't have provided better service if they'd tried. Service was outstanding from the minute go. Emma was there whenever i needed her, and provided me with the support I needed running up to the big day. On the day, no problem was... More

Booked for Sunday lunch to celebrate a wedding anniversary, this was our first visit but we were very pleased with both quality of food and the excellent service. Priced very reasonably the 3 course lunch was a joy, also the cost of wines was found to be surprisingly well within reason. Perhaps not a venue for the young, no loud... More

My husband recently celebrated his 60 th birthday at Shaw. It was such a success largely due to the superb food, relaxed atmosphere , the wonderful staff especially Emma who was so helpful nothing was too much trouble. Thank you all for making it so memorable. Not many venues can do mass catering successfully but Shaw definately can! All 15... More

Beautifully situated in the countryside near Melksham and handy for Bath and surrounding areas. My wife has stayed with me during my business trips too and found it like a home from... More

My partner and I stayed here for our Anniversary back in October. It was our first time in the area and it was amazing! Emma made us feel so welcome and helped my partner to organise some surprises, which was lovely. We stayed in the room with the four poster bed. It had a lovely view! The room is basic,... More
