Customer Rating: Mrs Newcombe, Tavistock We enjoyed our two days in Wiltshire.

Customer Rating: Mr Davies, Basingstoke

Customer Rating: Mr Greathead, Nailsworth This was the second stay at the hotel, this time it was disappointing and the quality of the food was poor.

Customer Rating: Mrs SHIRLEY, Sandown There were a number of issues in the restaurant which appeared to be understaffed. However the evening meals were extremely good and once we had ordered, the food arrived within a reasonable time. Our standard room was spacious and comfortable but the toilet flush was rather temperamental and it was difficult to get the shower water to the correct temperature. The staff are aware of these problems are steps are being taken to resolve them. All the staff were extremely helpful and courteous and despite the problems we will certainly return.

Customer Rating: Mr Dennis, Nuneaton

Customer Rating: Mrs COLLIER, WAREHAM I have stayed at this hotel several times on short breaks and have always enjoyed my stay. The sports facilities, food and restaurant are all excellent plus the staff are always friendly and happy to help.
