I stayed at the Old Rectory with my partner for my 60th birthday. We arrived to a very friendly welcome. Both Lynda and Colin made us feel very welcome in their home. Tea and toasted tea cakes were prepared and very welcome after a long journey. The room was very comfortable. The breakfasts were excellent. The thing that really stands out is that they made my birthday stay really special by presenting me with chocolates and Cava. Nothing seemed too much trouble. Thank you both for helping to make my birthday a special one.

This is the second time my wife and I have stayed at the Old Rectory. The first time was when the owners had just purchased it.
The hosts Linda & Colin have worked wonders with the accommodation, this time we stayed in the "Red Room" and it was excellent.
The breakfast was fresh & very filling and we enjoyed our stay immensley.
Whilst there we visited Street Shopping Village and Haynes Motor Museum.
We wil return as it is so central for exploring the area.
Thanks for a great stay once again!

I stayed at The old Rectory on Sunday night with my husband and 21 month old Daughter.
Lynda and Colin were both very welcoming and we all felt instantly comfortable.
We were greeted with a pot of tea and home made scones and jam/cream- delicious!
We stayed in the King room, as the family room was already taken, but this was plenty big enough for the three of us. The room was very well decorated, clean and with a very comfortable bed.
The on-suit was a shower room and perfect for our needs.
Lynda recommended a place for us to go for dinner, and even called a booked us a table. The Angel pub in Hindon didn't disappoint, and we had a lovely roast dinner.
Breakfast the next morning was also very good- a selection of cereals, fruit and juices, as well as a full English and toast- we certainly didn't leave the take hungry!
All in all, our stay couldn't have been any nicer- nothing felt like it was too much trouble- even when my daughter managed to throw almost an entire packet of honey Cheerios all over the stairs carpet!

I would highly recommend staying at The Old Rectory, and we will definitely be going back.

We recently stayed here for 2 nights with our 2 children (aged 3 and 4 months) and would highly recommend it. Lynda and Colin (like every other review has stated) are wonderful hosts and really do make you feel welcome. Couldn't ask for a better service.
The room we had was the family one and it was fantastically furnished and very clean and modern. The beds were SO comfy - always overlooked by places... you can't beat a good bed for a good sleep!
The breakfast was very tasty and sent us off both days with a well nourished stomach!
Definitely a thumbs up for this charming B&B.

A very happy find situated on the A303 ideal for exploring Stonehenge, Longleat, Salisbury etc - the list is endless. The property is very pretty and our en suite room comfortable, well appointed and scrupulously clean. We found the hosts, Colin and Lynda, were genuinely interested in their guests' comfort, convenience and happy to spend time over maps and guide books sharing local knowledge of 'pretty routes' and places to visit that might otherwise be overlooked. Breakfast rates an eleven out of ten. Highly recommended.

We booked this place based on recommendation and had a family room (Salisbury Suite) which is two rooms interconnected (both areas were beautifully decorated and immaculately clean), with all the nice little touches you appreciate but don't expect. Both rooms had a flat screen TV and my children (aged 10 & 8) loved their "room". The service was faultless - both Linda & Colin were so friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The whole place was lovely and tastefully decorated. Breakfast was just as lovely with all tastes catered for. We stayed for two nights and wish we'd stayed for longer, will definitely return again and would recommend to anyone. Really was perfect - have never stayed anywhere as nice as that, all credit to Linda and Colin for all their hard work in making this place as lovely as it is. Can't wait to visit again.

Very last minute booking, so glad we found this lovely b and b. We were made to feel so welcome, and with children that is something important to us. Shown to the Salisbury Suite straight away, which had two rooms! The room was spotlessly clean, the decor was lovely, and the beds very comfortable. Lynda gave us a jug of fresh milk to make tea/coffee. Felt that nothing would be too much trouble, they them booked us a table at a local pub for dinner.
Breakfast in the morning was wonderful, all freshly cooked to order. Lynda's homemade muesli was really lovely.
Will definitely return for a longer stay next time.

Room Tip: Salisbury suite was fantastic for families, as the grown ups get a room to themselves.
