Lovely place, nicely presented with comfortable rooms and quality fittings. Set at the end of pretty Corsham High St. We were a family of 6 : 2 grandparents, 2 parents and 2 small children on a 3 night stay occuping rooms 1 (1st floor twin - spacious, nice bathroom) and 12 (big comfortable bed with bunk beds for children in a separate sitting room area - a bit cramped as its essentially a loft space and overly hot despite the quality fans provided).
Breakfast was universally agreed to be excellent - try the granola. Dinner was less so - mostly down to one particular server who argued with my (soft spoken) wife about the contents of her drink (soda water added vs tonic), forgot (ignored?) a request for green veg for our children and again omitted to note down our request for ice cream vs cream with desserts. Food was of very good quality but may not suit big appetites - the child's meal was fine for our 6 yr old but for our 10 year old was around half his usual intake ... so choose accordingly. We chose to dine elsewhere on the other 2 nights of our stay.
Staff (outside of of our dinner encounter) were unfailingly friendly, helpful and welcoming - Heather particularly so.
So if room 12 were air conditioned, dinner was a tad more generous in portion sizes and we knew who was (or was not) waiting at table this would be a 5/5 rating.
