“Great Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 6 days ago NEW

Stayed here for business - its a great hotel and spa. I stayed for business and don't play golf !! However, teh gym/spa facilities are really good - and in the evenings its not so busy.
The breakfast is very good and service is good.
The room itself is simple but comfortable. Free wifi and tea making facilities ... !

excellent facilities for the both active and less active visitor, gym and swimming pool beauty department for hair and make up. Excellent service both front of house and room service. Quality food at a good price. Relaxing countryside and great golf club. A must to visit and stay.

Room Tip: all rooms great ground and first floor only with lift if required

Sixteen on us went for a long weekend playing golf and from the minute we arrived the staff where fantastic. The rooms are good quality and the food is excellent, they even put a Goan meal on for us on the Saturday to save us all a trip out to the curry house. The course is really good and will suit most handicaps. That good we are looking to go back in the spring.

13 of us went to the Wiltshire in October . I suppose one reason I booked here was of its value
What did please us all was the all round Quality . A choice of 3 main meals, starters and dessert . as good a meal as we have had at the vale or Celtic manor . ( without 5 star prices)
Everyone was polite and friendly . the drinks at a reasonable price . unlike most golf clubs
The two golf courses were nice , many of us especially liked the ( "half way house ") where we all availed ourselves of home made cakes , sausage rolls and Pasties . there was a pool table and sky tv in the lounge and all the leisure facilities , if you wanted them . Not a bad word from any of our 13 lads , In fact most want to return .
Excellent owners / staff /golf /facilities

I have spent 2 weekends at “The Wiltshire” the 1st (sept 2014) a mixture of men and ladies for a golf/spa weekend the 2nd visit (Oct 2014) just with a group of men.

Golf/Spa Visit.
All the ladies were happy with there treatments and enjoyed the pool …..the men played 2 rounds of golf on the Lake course ...which I found in very good condition with lush fairways and long rough !! the bunkers could have been in better condition ie raked but that is perhaps nit picking for the money you pay…..overall the course was very enjoyable for our handicap range 14 - 26 ….TIP Take enough balls ...as mentioned the rough was very long and chances of finding your ball slim………

Men Only
On the second visit my group was made of golf novices, but with a 9 hole course also on site this was an ideal place for them to have their 1st round …….
The Garden 9 hole course is no pitch and putt but a full size 9 holes with par 3s, 4s & 5s and was quiter than the full 18 hole course ….again ideal for my group.

Food/Bar/Accomadation/staff
If you book here in a package (Golf Breaks etc etc ) you will be requested to choose your dinner on arrival, this can be a bit off putting , but as explained to me with some groups up to 20+ people this makes life easier in the kitchen and keeps the quality of the food and service high….if you are a smaller group it may well be worth phoning the hotel in advance and asking if you can eat from the standard menu when dining, we just ticked from the list provided ….and requested a time to sit down for dinner.The food was very good and the service fine. The dining room is in the main bar area, with a separate area in the bar with SKY tv’s and a pool table….but the noise from other guest’s was ok and in general not an issue with both my parties. The rooms are pretty much what you expect ….clean and presentable so nothing to say on that count…
All the staff where helpful and polite……..so all in The Wiltshire provided excellent value for money ….and I would (and will) return.

Regards

I stayed one night for business and arrived late in the evening. Reception were very helpful and friendly. Decor is a bit dated and the room whilst a good size had an old electric heater...it was cold and then very hot with no real in between. Used room service and food was fine. Breakfast service was slow, the bread provided was not good but the rest of the fayre was fine. To sum up, fine as a place for the evening but it certainly isn't a place for a romantic getaway.
