Jackie was so helpful, and attentive, but in none way intrusive. Had a double room which was very comfortable (the bed was amazing), clean and warm. Was great...

We stayed here for a 2 night break, looking for a retreat to escape to when visiting elderly relatives in the Swindon area. What a wonderful relaxing find - The Old Post Office is like 'home from home' but with a little bit of extra 'pampering' from the very warm welcome and host, Jackie. Rooms are stylish, spotlessly clean but...

This guest house has a great landlady who is very friendly and will do anything for you (and she occasionally bursts into an operatic aria as she once was a professional singer). She cooked us a special breakfast of pancakes for the day after Shrove Tuesday. Very comfortable warm rooms. Pub called Carpenters (about a mile away down Old Vicarage...

From the very warm welcome from the two hosts Roger and Jackie, through to the comfortable bed and great breakfast - this B&B is fantastic. Rooms have SKY TV. A genuine homely feel and set in a picturesque village it's the perfect retreat to get away from it all. I am definitely staying again!

The welcome from Julie was fantastic and nothing was too much trouble. The room was perfect and has sky tv. The breakfast was amazing all from local farms and beautifully cooked.A unique feature is the glass covered well in the breakfast room. It is close to the town centre but is in a very quiet area .

Im here to provide 3 weeks of instruction and chose to stay here from a previous visit a few years ago. My arrival was late but it was no problem and i was warmly greeted by Jackie and a warm house. The location is excellent for getting onto the A420 bypassing the Swindon roundabouts and traffic. The B and B...

Fully welcomed by the loveliest of hosts. Room was warm comfortable and plus having sky in the room. I could catch up on my programmes. Fantastic night sleep, really comfortable soft bed. The hosts were great in the morning and scrumptious. Would recommend this place to all my colleagues!

Excellent B&B in a wonderfully quiet location, very close to the A420, A419 and M4 which makes life easy for moving around! Amazing breakfasts, made to order (!!) and Jackie is full of character. Thanks for a wonderful stay. Michael and Gemma
