Overall, a really good experience. Rooms were made available early and all the staff we spoke with were friendly and welcoming. Just two points to make, one of which they may not be able to resolve i.e. very low water pressure, which made our shower feel like a very light sprinkle! The other was the lack of vegetarian options at breakfast - the omelettes were lovely, but nowadays it’s unusual to not be offered vegetarian sausages, for example. That should be easy enough to put right.

Great room and good service from the staff. We enjoyed the breakfast but was disappointed no meals on sunday evenings. Did not stop us enjoying our stay as we went out and them came back to the bar. We will return as my daughter lives in the area.

Stayed on a Sunday night in a “luxury king size 4 poster room”. The room was spotless and perfectly adequate but did not have the “luxury” feel which we had expected. Breakfast was very good, all freshly made to order. The staff were polite and helpful. But 2 big cons for us: the mattress was very soft and sagged badly in the middle making it a very uncomfortable night as we kept rolling together, and secondly, we had, unprompted, been told that no food would be served in the evening. We checked again when we arrived and were told we could not eat at the hotel so went out to a pub about 5 miles away. So imagine our annoyance when we returned to see another couple clearly eating supper in the lounge area. They need to be consistent. All in all, an ok experience but memorable for the wrong reasons and definitely not the luxury experience we were charged for.

Thank you for staying with us and for your review. We are delighted you found the place spotless, the staff friendly and you enjoyed the breakfasts. You were due to arrive on a Wednesday in September and you had received a pre arrival email stating that Dinner was available. However on the day of arrival you asked us to move the reservation to a Sunday in October. We waived the cancellation fee due as a gesture of goodwill and highlighted that food is not available on Sundays. The guests in the Lounge brought in food from outside and asked our duty manager for plates and cutlery which we were happy to provide for them as we could not provide food. We apologise that we did not envisage that them eating there would cause annoyance for any other guests in the hotel as no one else was in the Lounge at that time. We hope that these guests were pleased with our helpfulness and maybe reflect this as a positive aspect in a review to negate this negative one. We will inspect the mattress however we have not received any other compaints about it. We will also look at maybe renamimg our room titles as the words "Luxury" and "Deluxe" can have different connotations to different guests.

Celebrating our 25th Wedding Anniversary we had a less than overwhelming stay. The ‘luxury’ room was definitely not with an empty minibar no complimentary water, no herbal tea / lack of supplies, poor quality toiletries & stains on the carpet. The staff were polite but not friendly and strangely we never saw the owners who seemed to be remote from the business operation. Knowing it was our anniversary it would have been nice to place a couple of chocolates on our pillow! Food was acceptable but lack of choice. Lunch was offered in the beer garden (same as evening menu) and the tables were all joined together despite the amount of room to spread them out on the large terrace area. Finally there was a very noisy door under our room which when shut shook our room until late. Altogether disappointing.

Thank you for spending your wedding anniversary at Claverton and we regret you were disappointed. We apologise for not leaving a card in your room which we usually do. This was an oversight and it has been highlighted to the Reception and Housekeeping staff. To respond to your other points, the minibars were emptied due to Covid restrictions and have remained in the rooms for guests to use for their own items. There is a note to say the water from the taps are drinkable and we see no reason to pollute the environment with unnecessary plastic water bottles. The Tea tray has Teabags, 2 types of coffees with all the accompaniments plus biscuits and we are happy to add herbal or decaff Tea from the kitchen if requested. We provide Shampoo, Conditioner, Soap, Body Wash and Lotion and they are a popular brand in hotels. The carpets are cleaned during a deep clean every month. On Saturdays we have a all day menu. As it is now October the majority of outdoor tables have been bought in and the ones left are under cover with heating overhead if required. Guests do not have to eat in the Beer Garden outside as we have indoor Dining available too. We are happy to move any tables out from under cover if requested. Our staff are often described in reviews as friendly and we are pleased that you at least found them polite in dealing with your complaints. The hotel owners are very much involved in the business day to day operation and have upmost confidence in their staff to provide the front of house experience if they are absent. We see hundreds of customers each year who give us great feedback of their stay, if not on social media then verbally or by email or cards, and we are truly disappointed that your stay was not as you wished it to be on such a special occasion.

A little gem of a hotel. Off the main road and easy to find. Central for exploring 1066 country. Covid aware and very well organised. A sympathetically refurbished and extended country house. The Grounds are extremely well kept. The hotel was also very clean and tidy. We stayed in room 10. A good sized well furnished and decorated room with a large sleigh style bed. A seating area overlooking the garden. A modern en suite shower room. A small fridge also in the room - handy for cold drinks etc., Breakfast is ordered the night before and freshly cooked for you. Usual UK breakfast menu with a continental option. The restaurant/ dining room is very well decorated in a 'lounge bar' style. All the tables are well spaced out. We ate in the restaurant for a few nights. Varied menu with DF,GF & V options. The food was freshly prepared, presented really well and tasty. All of the staff were happy and delightful, attentive but not intrusive and happy to help . They all know their job well. A well stocked bar in the dining area and also one outside in the garden dining area. A lovely few days. Thanks to the staff for making our stay enjoyable.
