A great place to stay, the chalets and tree house are excellent, as was the welcome, evening meal, and breakfast, yes there are a couple of dogs, Jake and Tyson, which were not a problem, and the atmosphere is very laid back, which suited us down to the ground. It's a lovely old building steeped in history, we would certainly... More

I travelled to this hotel with a friend for a wedding. On arrival at the aptly named 'Dusthole' after a 2 hour journey, we found the only entrance gate shut with a sign saying beware of the Alsation. With not a mention of there being a dog on the website and not particularly liking dogs myself, we entered with trepidation... More

Behind the gate were 2 large dogs, one older one lying down and the other with its nose at the gate looking quite menacing. After about 15 minutes the owner came to the gate and asked if we had booked in... More

We have eaten in the Resturant before but this was our 1st stay at the hotel. Tony is a great landlord and knows how to look after the customer. Rooms are ok and comfortable. Food is excellent and not a long wait after ordering. Breakfast is good. We will be returning Tony Powell Cardiff

found in the sleepy town of Shepton Mallet, my wife and I stayed before heading to Longleat Safari. The room was an excellent size, bathroom was a generous size and very clean. Tea, coffee and kettle provided and room and venue had plenty of character adding extra interest to our trip. Breakfast both hot and cold kept us running the... More

Well if you want to be woken up by the landlords barking dogs and building works then please be my guest and book a trip to stay here. Worst place I've ever stayed. Landlord very unfriendly and unsympathetic about the noise and especially about the dog.

We arrived quite late in the afternoon, had a relaxing time in the hot tub followed by a lovely meal and drinks later in the evening. The food and... More
