“A wonderful hostess”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

I stayed at Rockley House nearly 3 weeks. It is easy to see why she is filled to capacity so often. First off there are a number of repeat guests. Some over a number of years. Jane is more than accommodating when it comes to offering guests the best in breakfasts, the cleanest linens, and as if that weren't enough, she facilitated a trip or two for me out of Devizes. Would I return? Absolutely

Room Tip: Room was lovely, well appointed. Front room is on London Road, but did not bother me.

A truly lovely B and B to visit and stay in, as soon as we walked in the door we were made to feel welcome and at home. Nothing was too much trouble and our 5 month old baby was offered everything under the sun, from food to toys to play with. Slept so well in the huge bed we had in our room, and even with littlen between us in the morning for an hour or so, we still had lots of room to spread out in. Breakfast was a true delight and left the table having ate too much of the yumminess. Would definitely recommend and would stay again

We booked in at Rockley House as a break on the way to see family. Our seven-year-old boy leapt on to the trampoline straightaway - happy!! We loved sitting out on the terrace overlooking the canal watching the boats go by - we didn't mind Jane joining us for a chat, though! It's only a short walk into Devizes itself, and is well worth the effort with plenty of choice for eating and drinking. We had a first-floor room and with an extra bed set up. Even though the room faced the road, very little noise came in and we all slept well. So the first 'B' was good, but the second - breakfast - was better! Even with an early start, Jane got up to prepare a fab full English with nice, strong coffee! Overall, a great place to stay - a home-from-home as many people say here (with nice decorative and architectural touches, too). We'll be back!

I am back dating reviews! Stayed at Rockley House last year. The room was nice, people pleasant and welcoming which was all much appreciated. Very nice choice at breakfast which was also appreciated. Road outside was very busy with cars going by. But am I the only person who has reviewed it who was bothered by the fact that you could not lock your room when you left it to go out. Rooms were only lockable from the inside so if you go out your room would be accessible by other guests who may be staying there if they were so inclined. Best take any valuables out with you to be safe. This may have changed since I stayed so please check with them before booking now if it is something that would unsettle you, but I'd never come across this policy before in a B&B, hence knocking my rating down to an average. Nice B&B option in Devizes though, shame about the (as it was then) 'open door' policy. Because of this reason I have not been back to stay there since.

We stayed here overnight while cycling from Bristol to Reading and we are so glad we choose to stay here as opposed to other B&B's in devizes. The house is fabulous and the decor is a real eclectic mix which suits the house perfectly. My bed was huge and so comfy and a long day in the saddle. travelling with only a backpack is a challenge for girls and we wish we knew that Jane suppied shampoo, conditioner and shower gel in the bathrooms , will save weight next time. Breakfast was glorious , lots of fresh fruit , yoghurt and cereals all presented really nicely and a really good cooked breakfast that really set us up for the day, we proceeded to cycle 32 without stopping thanks to our breakfast. Jane really couldn't do enough for us without being too obtrusive. we will definetly stay there again if we do the ride again. Thank you for making our weekend even more special.

Like many others it seems, cycled in here between Reading and Bristol to a warm & relaxed welcome and spacious comfortable rooms.
Slept well, breakfasted in some style and set off again well restored.
Stay there!

Room Tip: We had the top floor, one double & two twins one with en suite and another separate bathroom. fe...

I would award 5 stars to Rockley House for service, comfort, cleaniness and location! The house is full of character and charm, the welcome was warm, the beds were so comfortable, the breakfast was amazing.

We stayed at Rockley House on our bike journey from Bristol to Reading along the Kennet and Avon Canal and could not have stayed anywhere nicer and since we were travelling "light" it was great to have the luxuries of a warm shower, tioletries, big towels, and hair dryer.

I dont have a lot of experience of staying in a B&B but the stay at Rockley House has definitely set the standard for next time and hope to stay there again in the not too distant future. Could definitely teach hotels a thing or two about "how it should be done".

Thank you very much :-)
