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

So comfortable. So friendly. A very warm and homely place to stay with a good bar and great food. Nothing is too much trouble when you stay here. 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

In many ways this is an incongruous hotel, because while the rooms are dated in their decoration (although most certainly clean) and are certainly "country casual" rather than hyper-modern - which is definitely in keeping with the area - the food is top-notch and I can guarantee far better than one would expect from a 2* hotel in Wiltshire. Combine... More

Stayed here for 3 nights in late October, apart from dated decor as some reviews have commented upon, dont judge this hotel on this aspect alone, the food is outstanding and the breakfasts are to die for, the people who run this hotel are very friendly and could not have been more welcoming, a must for people who are visting...

If dated decor bothers you, then don't come here, you won't like it! BUT if you want a really friendly welcome and first class food, then you really won't go wrong. Dogs are made welcome here and there is even a convenient doggy field just around the corner. The setting is beautiful, the rooms are clean and the beds are... More
