Interesting

Posted 20-Mar-2015 on Hotels
Very friendly owners but the whole place could do with more than a little tlc. Our 'en suite' was accessed by 5 very steep stairs and was antiquated and freezing cold.

Very pleasant moments and a place to remember.

We ended up staying longer than initially planned but Barbara and Carlo managed to accommodate us in another room. They have made our stay very pleasant and we loved the 19th century atmosphere.

Frightening

Posted 05-Feb-2015
Pros: Nothing
Cons: Everything
I arrived at the hotel quite late, the main door was open and the lights were on, however there was no reception and no reception desk, actually it looked like the place hadn't been used for a long time, there was items dumped everywhere, dirty bedding hanging over the banister and no one was anywhere to be seen. I walked through the back and the side thinking a may had the wrong entrance, but it got worse. I left the building, jumped in my car and legged it, sleeping in the car was far more appealing.

A rave from the past

Posted 30-Jul-2014
Pros: Everything
Cons: Don't change a thing
If you enjoy experiencing time-warps then Cleeve House, at Seend, on the outskirts of Melksham, Wiltshire, is a must. An almost gothic pile to the eye, it exudes an old-fashioned ambience that provides a genuinely warm and welcoming glow throughout it's hallowed corridors. Honestly, at one time (before the 80s were counted out) this characterful type of lodging was scattered liberally throughout this green and pleasant land. It rested, contentedly midst the burgeoning four star noisy hotel chains and the better to be avoided genteel private guest houses that were really no better than expensive B&Bs. But alas, many have succumbed to oppressive health and safety laws and spiraling labour costs. Unfortunately, and due to, no doubt, the Cleeve's popularity, we were only able to rest our weary bodies for a single night. Though a night of deep and welcome sleep it was, with an enchanting morning's view across a bucolic landscape, and a breakfast fit for a king. Go, go, go to The Cleeve. You will not be disappointed.

Quirky Victoria 'Folly-style' B&B Guest house

Posted 03-Jun-2014 on Hotels
The house is amazing,built in 1870 in mixed Medieval styles. It is used as a wedding venue (will external catering) and run as a B&B by a couple. It is very reasonably priced and breakfast was good. The location on Trowbridge road is good and it is only a 10 minute walk to the Barge Inn for dinner. (Book - it is excellent)
