We (my wife, son (8) and myself) were visiting Longleat over two days and needed somewhere to stay overnight. Usually we would use one of the large chains such as Hilton etc but were unable to find any availability that didnt entail a 30- 40 minute drive to/from Longleat. I found Farmers Hotel via Google Maps. It compare favourably on price (£40-£60 cheaper) with other local hotels and had a 3 person family room available. I can only echo what most other people have said. All the staff were very friendly, from the lady who handled our check in/out to the lady who served us breakfast (excellent by the way) to the cleaner we passed on the stairs. The room was clean and whilst not the largest, was perfectly adequate. My son did marvel at the smallest flat screen TV he'd ever seen but it was sufficient to keep him entertained. Car Parking could potentially be an issue, but we were lucky enough to arrive and depart at times when local parking restructions were not in operation, so parked nearby on the street. The Ritz it aint, but represented a great value for money and I would definately use Farmers again if I were in the area. Please note all you bigger, more expensive hotels, when you book a family room for 3 people, I expect to get towels & sufficient tea/coffee making facilities for 3 not 2 people. If Farmers can get this right, why cant you!
