“Pleasant,comfortable accomodation with wonderful food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

We arrived on Friday September 28th and found the owners to be very welcoming and accomodating.The room was clean and tastefully decorated with a huge,comfortable bed!The en-suite was scrupulously clean.The food was fabulous,including Nic's wonderful home-made bread and home-made sausages!! We also met some lovely fellow guests.Lancer's house is ideally situated for visiting all the local attractions including Stonehenge and Stourhead,a fabulous NT property.We would have no hesitation in recommending Lancer's House and look forward to a return visit!

Wonderful warm welcome, comfy beds, plump pillows and fantastic breakfast.

Lovely rural location, with plenty of parking.

Evening meals are a convenience, and I would class them as pub grub. But as mentioned before, the cooked breakfast rises well above that.

We had a wonderful couple of nights there and would happily stay again.

Room Tip: Room 3 is above the communal sitting room, so noise did drift up from there. However, I get the dist...

My husband and i just spent a lovely weekend at Lancers House. The house itself is beautiful, quite charming, with lovely views. We had a lovely room which was clean and very well presented. The breakfast was cooked to perfection, the owners were delightful, which only made our stay more enjoyable. Would highly recommend this lovely boutique hotel.

Room Tip: There aren't too many places i choose to re visit, however we will definitely be paying another...

We spent 2 nights in Sep12 at this lovely B&B in a family room for 3. We were taken back with the hospitality we received from Nik & Jayne who run this place. Amazing food and if you are a vegetarian this place is a must, just wondeful homely and freshly prepared food by Jayne to your requirements. Just ask if there is something else that is your preference and Jayne will cook if possible.
We stay at quite a few b&b's and hotels and the quality of the accomodation with the food and service was far better than you would get in some top hotels.
Highly recommended to anyone as this place is perfect for touring Wiltshire (Stonehenge, Salisbury, etc.)
The beds and cushions are perfect for a peaceful nights sleep.
All in all 5*++++

Room Tip: Vegetarian Food a must at this place

We recently stayed here by total accident. The original B & B we had booked into had double booked us and they found us this place at short notice. We didn't arrive until late and were given a very warm welcome. I was travelling with my elderly mother and son and had a triple room with a double and single. We found the hotel to be very clean and our room was lovely. The beds were the best I've ever slept on very comfortable and the ensuite was adequate for our overnight stay. The room had free wi fi much to my sons delight, and there were good tea, coffee and water facilities in the room. My only point to note would be the room wasn't massive and is plently adequate for a nights stay but I wouldn't have wanted to stay more than a night as the room was next to the main road which had traffic noise which woke us up early but other than that you can not fault this hotel. The hotel has lovely grounds with a swimming pool and gardens unfortunately we were up early in the morning for a day out so didn't make use of these. They serve evening meals which again we didn't experience but I would imagine the quality would be good. The warm welcome at breakfast and large selection was much appreciated and I would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants a very good clean bed and breakfast with a warm welcome and comfortable nights sleep. Will definitely use this again if in the area.

Room Tip: don't have room at front of hotel as noise from road

Thank you for your lovely comments, we really do appreciate them. We do try to ensure a good night's sleep for all our guests and only use the highest quality mattresses. It was our pleasure to be able to help you out of an awkward situation especially as I know the other B&B owner tried very hard to find a room for you. We would love to see you all again and look forward to welcoming you back.

Can't fault the welcoming, friendly and very helpful hosts. Was a little disappointed in the cleanliness of the bathroom in particular, others hairs in the shower, toothpaste in the sink and the mirrors in bathroom and room hadn't been cleaned and the towels could do with renewing. It's a shame as it let a lovely place down. A few areas could do with a bit of love such as the half hung sign wiith missing letters that is the first thing you see as you drive in, a few piles of rubble dotted around and a half full pool on a hot weekend. However it strikes me as the kind of place that will read reviews and put things right so don't be put off. Nice breakfast with vege choice.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review which is always appreciated. We are truly sorry that your stay was less than perfect and wish we had the chance to correct things at the time. We assume you mean the signage of the previous company on the building behind us and have arranged for the removal of the rest of the lettering. The pool had sprung a leek two days before you arrived and was being investigated but was only a few inches lower than it shoud have been. We hope you will decide to come back and see the improvements we have made since your stay and if you wait until next summer we should have complete the new suites by then. Thank you again for taking the time to review us as we do value all feedback that we can get.

We found Lancers House online through booking.com at short notice and what a wonderful surprise! From the moment we walked through the door we were greeted by the relaxing fragrance of lavender and our most gracious hosts Nic and Jayne. We had travelled from Australia and were exhausted, so it was great to find such a welcoming haven upon our arrival.

The rooms were very clean, with charm and character, and the beds were very comfortable. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Breakfast included farm fresh eggs and other local produce. Jayne's homemade marmalade was delicious!

We were so glad to have spent 5 nights here, and wished we could have stayed longer.

We highly recommend Lancers House, and hope to return again in the future.
