We stayed for one night so that we could visit the Christmas market in Bath. The hotel is an impressive building, with some outstanding views over the valley. Our room was very clean but in need of some tlc, as it was a bit shabby. The evening meal was excellent with a good choice of menu, well cooked, presented and served. Breakfast was good as well with a good choice of hot and cold food.
What a hotel. We stayed 2 nights for a friend's wedding, night number 1 in the bridal room (39) it was fantastic lots of space we had no issues getting ready in the morning with lots of people in the room. Lovely balcony was a great touch. Night 2 was not quite as pleasant the room was nice enough but the walls very thin so we could hear all the comings and goings of the other rooms. . I cannot fault the staff at all! They were helpful and polite and nothing was too much to ask. Breakfast the first morning was served to our room and was simply amazing not ing 2 we all ate in the restaurant and again the food was brilliant, tea and coffee served to the table. We also had dinner in the restaurant on our first night which was very nice. I would definitely return to stay again and if you are considering a wedding here I would highly recommend!!
A country house setting in beautiful countryside. My one night stay with breakfast was just what I wanted. Only 5 miles outside Bath in a peaceful room. I was not disturbed even though there was a wedding reception taking place the same evening.
Good:Staff where very friendly and helpful. The food was lovely. Great view from room. Bad: creaky bed that woke me and my partner up every time we moved, tv has for about 30 channels (mostly radio) and every 5 minutes would go all red, shower dipped every time you got in. The hair dryer you had to constantly hold a button for it to be in use which was more annoying then bad. I paid out for the executive room because it was mine and my girlfriends 3 year anniversary and the hotel looked lovely in the photos. When we got there we realised that it was more beautiful in person then On the pictures. We went to the reception and the women was very pleasant and helpful. We were room number 17 and I thought because I paid more for the executive room it would be amazing but really as soon as I stepped in I realised it wasn’t what I had imagined and kind of regretted my choice. We knew that because it was an old building it might have some flaws but really everything that we found wasn’t a hard fix and everything we did like was the charm of the building and the hospitality. In all we had a lovely trip away but the hotel wasn’t anything special and defiantly wouldn’t make a return visit and if I did wouldn’t waste my money on the executive room.
We only stayed one night but it was so lovely. The building is beautiful and exceptionally clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was gorgeous and very reasonably priced. Our bed was massive and we had a great nights sleep. Would definitely stay again :)
The hotel is easy to find. It’s maybe a little tired looking from the outside but the interior is a better standard. Had to change our room as the bathroom door would not close. Although no apology was offered we had no difficulty in changing to a better room. Room was clean and in good decor. Staff generally were polite and helpful, the breakfast staff were a cheerful start for the day. We will return but next time will make sure there are no functions as we had a rough evening from noisy inconsiderate wedding guests that were staying overnight, c’est la vie.
I recently stayed here with my mum whilst on our annual shopping trip to Bath. We had stayed here years ago and liked it and this time it was better than we remembered. Helpful staff and warm welcome. We stayed in a large twin room, we had phoned and requested one with extra room and good views as we like this annual trip to be a nice treat. This room (room 3) didn't disappoint plenty of space and lovely views out into the small garden and further looking onto the hills leading into bath. We had food in the bar rather than the restaurant and it was lovely I had fish and chips and my mum had pasta both good portians and very tasty Breakfast in the morning is a buffet with hot food, pasterues fruit and cereal again very nice. Can't wait to visit again
I arrived here on Saturday with my dad, as a treat for him as he had never been to Bath and from the moment we pulled up into the car park this hotel didn't disappoint. Firstly, when we arrived at reception to book in, the lovely lady who was there saw my dad had a stick and mobility issues and immediately (without making a fuss or making me feel silly) advised that the lifts only went to Floor 2, and our rooms were on the 3rd floor - straight away she disappeared into the back office, and returned having booked dad into a first floor room. I apologised as I hadn't read the small print that said about the lifts, but she was gracious and helpful and made us feel like valued guests right from the off. There was also a wedding on that Saturday - a notice on the entrance door confirmed this - but apart from sharing the bar area with various guests, there was no way we would have known - there was no late loud noise, no disruptive guests and no cause for concern at all. I had the beef and horseradish sandwich and with drinks this was really reasonably priced. In the evening we had dinner in the restaurant, and at £22 for two (OMG delicious) courses, this was really good value too. I had the beef medallions, cooked med rare to perfection, with rosti and veg and my dad had the cheese and leek tartlet.....I can eat a lot but these portions were very generous. We shared the honeycomb cheesecake, again a generous portion. Breakfast was equally as good, with a great selection and good value at £12. The room was comfortable, and I had an amazing view over the rolling countryside...it was perfect for relaxation.....and most importantly it was spotlessly clean. I'm lucky to have travelled a lot, and this is an incredible hotel, with wonderful staff in a great location. What the staff don't know is that my dad is unfortunately on borrowed time, and this will be his first and last trip to Bath, and thanks to everyone at this hotel it was incredibly memorable.
The property is in the small village of Limpley Stoke, about a 15 minute drive south from Bath, just off the main road to Warminster. The hotel is clearly sign-posted, just after you drive throught the village of Claverton. We managed to get a great advance rate of just £88 for 1 night, through the Best Western website. The hotel presents as an imposing property set on a hillside above Limpley Stoke and is accessed by a private drive, leading up from the village. There are several large car parks on site and we found little difficulty parking. On entering, you are in a long corridor, with residents lounge, two function suites, restaurant and bar leading off. The reception desk is mid-way along the corridor, next to the main staircase. Check-in was efficeint and we were given a complimentary upgrade to Room 4, on the first floor, above the main entrance. On entering the room, it was clear that it had been recently refurbished to a good standard. Three large Victorian sash windows, draped in quaint heavy curtains, had views over the valley. The design of the curtains was also reflected in the matching bed-throw and cushions. The queen bed was comfortable with crisp linnen and plenty of pillows. There were two bedside cabinets, two reproduciton easy chairs, coffee table and dressing table, with a further chair. The furniture was sympathetically reproduction period design, with matched the ambience of the property. In addition to two five-light ceiling chandeliers, there were two bedside lamps and a desk lamp, allowing a number of lighting modes to be created. The room had a large flat-screen TV with a range of freeview channels, a bluetooth soundbar to play music from your mobile phone, free WIFI, haridryer and telephone. The bathroom had a large walk-in shower, good lighting, heated towel rail, WC and a small glass shelf. There were plenty of fluffy white towels and a selection of complimentary toiletries, sewing kit and so forth. We dined that evening in the hotel's large and somewhat cavernous dining room. A bit too brightly lit. However, the menu and wine list were excellent and the waiting staff both courteous and efficient. Breakfast the next morning was taken in the restaurant and comprised a good range of hot and cold buffet items, with a menu of freshly prepared additional items (kippers, fried eggs, poached eggs etc) also available. On the evening we stayed, the hotel was hosting both a wedding and also a launch event. The property however is so large that no noise reached our first floor room. A very well-placed property to explore Bath, the nearby American Museum at Claverton, Longleat and the other attractive towns and villages in the area.
Excellent service with great views! Super relaxing and tucked away! Sebastian the French bartender was so funny and kind! He helped me brush up on my french! The staff were all great as well! Great food!
