We visited for Saturday lunch for my Mother's 90th birthday. A brilliant location, good venue, reasonable food but service was a struggle - but they did try hard. But with only 2 people looking after us the service was slow and the food only warm - I don't like being negative and would revisit to see if they can cater...

Has old world character, but the rooms are poor value, the upper rooms (no lifts) have unsafe stairs and handrails. There was an arrogant attitude from some staff. Limited car parking which you have to pay extra for, or park in a public open carpark.

We enjoyed our stay. I was rather hoping to be transported back to the 13th century which was why I chose this hotel, but sadly, once past the lovely ancient entrance and courtyard, the rest of the hotel, including our room, was relatively modern ( probably understandably due to fire regs etc, but more charm and character would've been nice)...

We decided to eat here because the hotel we were staying at didn't seem to cater for evening meals. We were warmly welcomed by the waiting staff and were led to a table in beautiful surroundings. The building is gorgeous and so was the food we were served. I thought it was extra special without being pompus or overpriced. I...

Great central location in town. We we were able to walk to different restaurants and the Cathedral and nothing was too far away. We pre-booked a taxi to take us to Stonehenge for our early morning special access tour, but we noticed that there is a line of taxis just across the street, so we could have taken one of...

Very warm welcome to this special hotel. Parking is available on site - but only a few places and £15 per night - this is definitely worth booking in advance because public car parks are about £8 a day and you have the benefit of easy access and unloading. Our room on the first floor was characterful, with oak beams...

We stayed 2 nights over Easter 2017, we had breakfast both days which is £8.99 for as much as you like. We had dinner on one night which was convenient as we were tired and is at a reduced rate of £15 something. Dinner was ok not great. It seems understaffed as service was slow at the bar. There's a...

We met up with friends here, as the hotel is a very good place to be able to sit and talk, in the bar or the lounge. The bedroom was comfortable and clean, the staff were helpful and the meals we had were good. The menu gave a very good choice. It is situated in a good place to be...
