We stopped in at the The Castle Hotel last year and promised ourselves a return visit. The staff, without exception, were still brilliant. They're were so friendly and told us of lots of place to visit and they were even happy to recommend a local indian restaurant when we decided to eat out. Our room was clean and spacious with a comfy bed but the bathroom was a little small, but perhaps I'm being picky. Devizes is a lovely town to wander around and we even found a couple of hidden gems. Although we were told by a rather angry postman that there is no public access to Devizes Castle itself!! After a cold day out exploring it was lovely to have a Baileys in front of the log fire to thaw out. What a treat and a little bit romantic!! Would definitely recommend the Castle Hotel for a relaxing stay if you ever get down that way.
