The Jolly Huntsman Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #9 of 28 Chippenham B&B and Inns
Reviewed November 3, 2013 via mobile

I planned to go to the Christian Malford bonfire & fireworks and stay with my dad, but last minute my bf surprised me and came along.
But no room at my dads for the two of us, so we needed last minute accommodation. Had a look up on line and found this little gem!!
Had a read through the reviews and thought yes that sounds perfect - especially with location only being 10 minutes from my Dads.
As soon as we arrived felt very welcome, loved the atmosphere really warm & friendly.
Immediately shown to our room (No.7) again a really warm comfortable room and clean.
We were both then asked by the gentlemen what time we would like breakfast the following morning - which we booked for 9.30am and have to say for such a little place the full English breakfast was extremely tasty! Just what was needed after a good night out with family .
Thank you to the kitchen :)
Overall my bf and I had a lovely weekend and enjoyed the jolly huntsman - if we ever need accommodation again when coming to visit my Dad this is where we will book .

What a great place the Jolly Huntsman is! Stayed here with colleagues on business and we found it warm, inviting, a great welcome with an amazing menu. Definitely something for everyone, we were spoilt for choice. Superb bar and the open fire was very welcome! Rooms are very clean, well appointed and very comfortable. We shall certainly be staying again and recommending it to anyone wishing to stay in the area.

Room Tip: We stayed in the cottage but have no doubt the rooms in the main hotel would be just as good.

The Jolly Huntsman is a great value country pub with simply stunning food. The accomodation is clean, perfectly adequate, and good value - we're talking country pub here, not a Hilton. We thought it was priced just right and felt we had got good value for our money. Helen and her staff are very nice people, very willing to make your stay a good one. The chef is phenomenal, and not a prima donna - arriving back very late on Friday he was just closing the kitchen, but stayed on to provide cheesy chips while the frier was still hot. First thing next morning he served up a superb omelette, then fillet of kangaroo the same evening. A chef who understands his priorities are the guests, nice to see. We'll be coming back.

I stayed for one night here last week. I just stopped off by chance on my journey from Yorkshire to Devon. I was given a lovely apartment sitting room , bedroom , bathroom. It was really nice and completely private. I was made very welcome and felt very relaxed as I was a lady travelling alone.
The dinner was excellent best meal I have eaten out for a long time. Breakfast was also very good
all you could wish for. I am just sorry it isn't my local pub as i would eat there often. My compliments to all concerned.
PS Stayed at the Leicester Hilton on my way home you beat them by miles.

Friendly welcome, lovely room in this old country pub which gets realy busy and is signed from the main road. I ate in the retaurant aswell and the food and service could not be faulted. As I was away early the following morning I asked for a packed lunch, they did me a whopping BLT which was realy welcome the day after. I realy wanted to give it 5 out of 5 but there was no shower, bath only, and the matress sounded as if it had seen better days as the springs were creaking when you breathed. It was ok comfort wise and once asleep I had a good nights kip but it was a little wierd when it creaked as you breathed. In the Jolly Huntsmans defence I did not inform them of the metresse as I was away early in the morning and it was comfy enough to put up with.

Many thanks for your recent kind review and we were delighted that you enjoyed your recent stay with us. We are somewhat reknown for our breakfast baguettes which are always very well received! Out of all of our rooms, there are only two with a bath and showerhead attachment. The majority of the rooms have a bath and shower, with the remainder benefitting from a walk in shower only. Hopefully we shall have the opportunity of welcoming you again, at which time, please let us know your preference regarding a shower and we will ensure that we allocate a suitable room to you. Thank you too for your comments relating the mattress being creaky. We have had the opportunity to check this out and whilst the mattress in question was replaced last year, these things do have a limited life and plans are in hand to replace the existing one with a memory foam version. We look forward to welcoming you again when you are in the area.

There was a very warm welcome at this old, country Inn. We were given a suite of rooms in a detached building which gave us plenty of room, although the bedroom was a bit small. We enjoyed a meal in the pub in the evening and that was excellent, as was the breakfast which was included in the price. We would definitely stay here again as we are quite content with an slightly old fashioned establishment, which is comfortable and friendly. Not for those expecting luxury.

Thanks for your recent review which is much appreciated. So glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay and meals with us. I noted your comments relating to luxury and our old 'fashionedness' and believe that our prices reflect the fact that we are an old fashioned and traditional English village inn, offering a clean and honest bed and breakfast service as opposed to a boutique or country house hotel. Hope to welcome you both again soon.
