Me and my other half stayed here for the weekend, with our dog, and we loved it. The whole place appears to have been recently updated and decorated, in a very sympathetic way.
The bedroom was clean and well appointed, as was the bathroom.
In the bar there's bags of atmosphere, and with the open fire, lovely and warm. The service is attentive, informed, friendly and very polite, from every member of staff that we encountered. The food as fantastic!
Once outside, the local views are lovely. We took the dog on walk recommended by the hotel, and saw some great view which "gave our eyes a stretch" (you'll understand that when you go there and ask for the walk print out!).
So, we would have no hesitation in recommending The King John Inn.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Situated in the scenic village of Tollard Royal in rural Wiltshire, The King John Inn is a Victorian and award-wining country inn offering beautiful accommodation, delicious food and a warm, friendly service. Our eight en-suite bedrooms combine modern comfort with rustic elegance and feature luxurious linen, Nespresso machines, flat-screen TVs, Wi-Fi, direct dial phones and luxurious toiletries. Our Head Chef is an accomplished fisherman, bakes his own bread, makes his own cheese and still finds time to get up early and catch local game when in season so you can expect that every plate on the King John menu is as fresh as it can be and is expertly crafted with a passion for the local countryside. We are proud to have recently received 1 Rosette from the AA. In summer, our terraced garden is the perfect place to dine alfresco while watching the chefs in action in their Victorian-inspired outdoor kitchen. In winter, relax near our roaring-log fires in our open plan pub or in the informal restaurant. The bar provides an ever-changing selection of imported drafts and local beers as well as an extensive wine list. Salisbury and its cathedral are only a 30 minute drive away whilst the beautiful hillside town of Shaftesbury is only 20 minutes. The King John Inn also sits within a 5-minute walk of the historic Rushmore Park, an area of lawn and open woodland home to the Rushmore Golf Club. ... more less
