“Better than expected”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2010

After reading very average reviews for this Pub/Restaurant/Hotel we found it pretty good. The room was very nice and comfortable, well appointed with lovely Neals Yard bathroom products. It was quiet and the bed was comfortable. We ate in the restaurant and enjoyed it very much

We stopped at the hotel the august bank holiday .The building is a loverly 14th century place with plenty of charm and original features but still offering all the mod cons we demand in todays hotel rooms . The food was good the drink resonably priced and with a good choice . Where it realy scored though was with the staff , from the genral manager ,Oliver , through all the others we came in contact with everyone went out of thier way to make us feel welcome . We visited longleat and Stonehenge both only a few miles away . We had a great couple of days and would recomend this hotel , I know we will return soon .

We stayed here for a relaxing weekend away from city life. It was recommended by another hotel in the area where we had a booking, but unfortunately it burnt down! The setting is great and the restaurant and bar are well done and it is like going back in time. The rooms themselves are sparse with quality fittings if somewhat reminding me of Grandma's house. The menu is extensive and the food and wine was good. One can sit on the green across the road with a drink or play boules. What let the place down for us was the Manager - a pompous little man who talks down to his staff. We overheard him making derogatory remarks about customers, which was highly unprofessional. Although it is a nice place it is clear that it is geared towards a certain type of clientele, and unfortunately we left with a sense of not having been genuinely welcomed. I recommend the place across the road , where we ate on our second night, much friendlier and less pretentious!

We booked three nights at The Lamb via their website and found this to be very good value for the area, especially when they included two adult passport tickets for Longleat in the price of £218.

We stayed in a converted outbuilding adjacent to the main inn building. The room was clean and well presented with original features such as white washed brick walls combining with modern touches such as air conditioning, direct dial phone and flat screen TV. The small en-suite was again well presented with marble tiling and down lighting. The corner shower unit was a bit on the small side but this is a minor grumble.
The inn had a good atmosphere with dark furnishing and wooden flooring highlighted by wall lighting and real fires. There was a good selection of scotch, wines and other sprits with decent pint of real ale. The food was good and well priced. The staff were plesant and parking was free.

Hindon is a clean, quiet and plesant place with little amenities but this I liked because it added to the feeling of a break away from the office, anyhow London is only 90 miles away or about 1 hour 45 minutes drive. Longleat was 20 minutes. 'Stourhead' and Lacock village are well worth a visit and an easy drive from the inn.

A good year round option for couples who are for looking for a break.

Booked this hotel at rather short notice for an overnight on the way to Devon and found an offer for a double room on hotel's own website. So already well-disposed on account of the offer and ease of booking, I was pleased to arrive to a friendly reception. Room a decent size, well-presented and the bed very comfortable. At dinner, food was well-prepared and tasty - on account of Scots connections of owners whiskey seems a speciality. Good "full English" breakfast. Service in all departments very good. Nice Neals Yard toiletries in bathroom. Village is very pretty and well located for countryside and visits to places like Salisbury, Wilton, Stourhead. Was sorry to have had only one night and would very happily return.

Spent two nights here and really enjoyed it. Very old inn so rooms a bit small (needed two with our two kids), but nicely updated with flat screen TVs and wifi, renovated bathrooms. The Pub and dinning rooms were just as I'd hoped, classic old English feel and good food. An out-of-the-way village, but it worked for us with Salisbury about 20 minutes away.

We wanted to visit Longleat so looked for a hotel within confortable driving distance with consistently good reviews. The Lamb seemed to fit our needs and happened to be offering 3 nights with a Longleat pass at an attractive price. Booked this plus another two nights making a total of five nights. Was concerned about the quality of room we may be offered as I got the impression from previous reviews that not all rooms had yet been refurbished and I particularly wanted a nice room. I mentioned this when I phoned to book and on arrival we were shown a choice of two rooms. One in the main building which we liked and another in the barn which was even more luxuriously decorated but only had a shower (no bath) and as my wife likes a bath we chose the one in the main building.
Wireless access worked perfectly in our room. Plenty of tea and coffee and super toiletries. Satellite TV channels are more than sufficient.
Despite being busy most nights we were not disturbed despite being above the bar/reception area.
At first glance, the car park behind the barn is very small but they also have more car parking across the road and the entire village has lots of parking and no restrictions so parking should never be a problem.
We ate twice in the Lamb and the food was good. The menu was not really sufficiently varied to have eaten there on all five nights. We ate twice in the Angel across the road and this was also good. We also ate in the Beckford Arms which was a disappointment. The portions were small and the service was anything but relaxed. They appeared to be disorganised and under pressure and the courses took ages to come out of the kitchen despite unprompted assurances that it was on its way.
Breakfast at the Lamb was a relaxed affair and the full English was fine. However, it was not as superb or extra special as others have implied. Two couples had croissants which were uncooked in the middle so take note if you are going to chose the continental option.
Although all our food and drinks were put on the room we had no problems with the bill. I was only charged 25p for making a phone call from the room which I thought was very reasonable. Please note that no one seemed to be able to get a signal on their mobiles around the hotel. In fact the local area is a bit of a mobile blackspot. All the staff in the hotel were friendly and helpful,
Would I stay there again? Yes I would.
