Convenient location coming from Heathrow.

Posted 12-Sep-2016
Pros: The environment and surroundings were beautiful. Having a swim first thing in the morning was wonderful
Cons: Vegetarian food
Location: Location good assess from Heathrow.
Easy checkin with friendly and welcoming staff. We then went for dinner in the dining room. I ordered the vegetarian option, while my husband ordered the pork which he enjoyed. The vegetarian meal was the worst I have had in England, undercooked beans (inedible) with cooked spinach in the middle. After telling the staff of my disappointment in the meal, who said that they would pass it on to the chef. On check out I was then charged £33 for the meal.

No Air con!

Hotel was OK but we stayed during a hot spell and the lack of air conditioning was a real disadvantage.

Good

Posted 11-Jun-2016
The hotel and location are great. The room was lovely and clean. The food is very nice but quite pricey. We stayed here particularly because we wanted to use the spa and were disappointed that the jaccuzzi was out of action and although the spa says it is open until 9pm access to some parts were restricted from around 7:30pm because they had cleared them ready for the next day! Which wasn't great for us as we could only really use the spa in the evening due to time of arrival as a result of travel.

Great for a weekend of rest

Posted 07-Jun-2016
Pros: Peaceful surroundings.
Cons: Use real coffee for coffee drinks, rather than instant. Don't use frozen fish for your fish and chips meal.
Location: Longleat Animal Park is very close, just a few minutes away.
We stayed here about 15 years ago, the hotel has not changed much, still very pleasant. A few suggestions. Please don't use powdered coffee mix when people order a latte. You can tell it from the taste. The effort you go through with the restaurant is wonderful, sadly, it appeared that when ordering fish and chips, you are serving frozen cod, this I found unpleasant. Again, you can tell the difference. You might want to exchange the mattresses, they are starting to get a bit soggy.. Otherwise, I think you are doing a great job.

Convenient stop-over enroute to Tiverton

Posted 03-Jun-2016
Pros: We received a very warm welcome on arrival and made to feel 'at home'. Room 5 at the front of the house was spacious and had a good view of the garden
Cons: A block of wood for holding the large window ajar for fresh air would be useful - resorted to one of the many cushions!
Just returned from staying in a five star hotel in Venice and the Bishopstrow Hotel compares favourably with that hotel.
