“Dirty place to stay”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

Room dirty, bathroom disgusting, the room had four huge outside lights shining in all night. The stairs were very dirty with the carpet having seen better days. Breakfast was revolting, cooked and served by a person who we thought was the odd job man. We moved on to Bristol, had a fantastic hotel for a lot less than the £80 we were charged for the substandard accomodation. Will certainly not be returning

Stayed at the Lion and Fiddle for three nights whilst attending an exhibition in the ares. We were greated very warmly by the staff on arrival and were shown to our room which was warm and inviting, the bed was so very comfortable. We had our evening meal in the hotel on the Friday and Saturday evening and the food and service was excellent as were the breakfasts. Would certainly recommend staying here if you are in the area. We will be staying here again when we attend the exhibition next year.

Me and my fiancé booked a room here to stay and after checking in we made our way up to the worn, dirty stairs to our room. We were horrified when we entered the bathroom, of the state of the shower tray. Noticing yellow stains and grim. From explaining this to the "Landlord" we were discriminated about out age and we were told we have not experienced good hotels! After being shocked by the way we have been spoke to we didnt feel comfortable staying somewhere like this. The landlord of the pub was so rude i would never recommend anyone to go through what we have.

Stay for one night and was very happy that I had stayed at this particular pub.

The food selection and quality was very good and the real ales were great!

Breakfast was superb as was the room.

Staff very very friendly so I would recommend it.

I loved the Lion and Fiddle. We arrived after the kitchen was closed but the owner made dinner for us anyway and it was very good. Our reservation included a full english breakfast and it was also very good. I liked meeting the local people in the pub. They were all so very nice. They even helped us plan our visit to the local sites. Make sure you try the Thatchers Gold on tap. The twin room was perfect and very clean. We will make it a point to visit this area again so we can visit the Lion and FIddle again. Thanks Henry :)

Room Tip: Talk to the locals in the pub and get pointers about the area. You will be glad you did !

I and a friend went to Trowbridge to look for a place to move in. In the whole area (Trowbridge, Westbury and Warminster) this was the cheapest place to sleep and our stay was pretty good.
The place is clean and open until late, inside there's a pub and a restaurant. The staff was friendly and helped us a little with our serarch.
The room was small but nice and clean, an average room for two persone.
Our reservation included a full english breakfast (a pretty good and plentiful one), that we enjoyed a lot.
The downside is the distance from the station, especially at night we had to walk for half an hour to reach the place.
