This place deserves more than an excellent rating if that were possible. The rooms, the food , the welcome, we had such a laugh with the head bar lady/waitress and the young blond girl! We were a party of 6 and a dog, and stayed 2 nights. Nothing was to much bother. Would return definitely. If I have to find a fault get new pillows in all rooms, very hard, flat and lumpy.

Excellent night's stay

Arrived in time for an evening meal and the Wiltshire beef pie was excellent. Room very clean and bed extremely comfortable. Friendly staff and good breakfast. TV in room seemed reluctant to work but I wasn't over-bothered by that!

    • Disliked: Cleanliness

    The staff were very friendly and helpful. The basic cleanliness of bathroom and bedding were good. However, there were cobwebs on the ceiling, and the windows into the room were covered in spider webs! The food was good, but I became extremely ill with what appeared to be food poisoning on my second night.
