Spent superb two days staying at the wonderful English inn,wonderfully staff making a special family Christmas meal very memorable,even carol singers.We also stayed the night at the inn with superb rooms en suite in this lovely character building.the award winning breakfast was as good as expected again with very pleasant service and staff.The days then concluded with visit to the stunning Lacock Abbey,and wandering the character village shops Including Watlings jewellers,stunning!well done National Trust for keeping this village so special.
Although a little tricky to find in the dark, that was where any 'issues' with this B&B ended; and given that we were greeted in the road outside by Dilly, who seemed to have realised we were lost, this hardly seems an issue in itself.
The room was cosy, the bed was comfy and the breakfast is well worth returning for on its own.
I would thoroughly recommend to a friend and would definitely return.
It was marvellous to stay at the hotel. We had dinner the evening of our stay in the restaurant and the food was delicious and although pricey, the portion sizes we generous. Our room was upgraded and the night was peaceful. Breakfast in the morning was again wonderful and we would definitely recommend this hotel to couples wanting to celebrate a special occasion. Although the concierge apologised, the condition of the hotel was not 'superb' because they were refurbishing the furnishings.

I stayed at the Shaw Country Hotel for 1 night on a business trip recently. The hotel is a good quality private hotel with very pleasant staff.
On arrival there was one very small issue that I spoke to the reception staff about, within 5 minutes the owner of the establishment came to my room, apologised (for something that was outside of his control) and took immediate steps to rectify the situation.
All in all a very pleasant stay in a well run hotel that I would thoroughly recommend to others.

Bowood Hall is a lovely place to stay. My fiancee and I had a relaxing stay. Staff were friendly and facilities are very good. Our only bug-bear was that the pilliows were uncomfortable which made a restless night for us both. But breakfast made up for it! Will definitely stay there again, but will probably bring our own pillows ;-)
I don't know why all the 1-star reviews; I had an utterly pleasant experience at the Bear Hotel! I will confirm the presence of the bar previously complained about - it is there, and it draws a crowd, but it wasn't so loud that I noticed from the room. Paul and Cheryl were excellent hosts (appreciate you two putting out some cereal for me when I left WELL before the scheduled breakfast hours), the room charming, comfy, and clean. Did not notice any faults in the rest of the facilities as previously noted by other reviewers. Location of the hotel is a nice bonus too, right at the head of the main street, so access to anything and everything is easy as pie.
Short and sweet, the hotel is aged, but is full of the associated charm that comes with such a place. And I'd rather stay at a place like the Bear where the staff is so personable as opposed to a "Ritz" where the desk doesn't remember my name.
We arrived mid afternoon booked in very quickly and easily . We were shown the dining room for breakfast. Our bedroom was warm and inviting with a large ensuite. The staff were very attentive. Breakfast was amazing with so much choice including fresh fruit. We would stay there again.
