Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A very warm welcome, clean and comfortable room, good facilities and excellent on-site cafe serving a much better range of breakfast options than a typical Youth Hostel. Would certainly recommend! 😊

I stayed here with my friend the night before the summer solstice and I have to say I really enjoyed myself. We booked two beds in a six bed room and much to our delight, we were the only people in the room that night. The room was spacious and had a handy ensuite. We used the kitchen to make a big salad and found that the kitchen had everything we needed. We ate our dinner in the large conservatory! The next morning we explored the big garden and were delighted to find that the hostel garden turned into a rare breeds farm! We saw guinea pigs, pygmy goats, sheep, peacocks and plenty of other farmyard animals. We also stopped for lunch in the cafe/farmshop and had an amazing full english breakfast. I had the vegetarian one and it came with all the trimmings AND a cup of coffee for only £10. I would definitely stay here again if I was in the area and I couldn't help but think as I was exploring the rare breeds farm how perfect it would be for kids.

We arrived at the hostel and realised we had no milk or wine. Had no idea that we could get both fresh milk by the bottle and local wine from the on-site vineyard next door! We all had a comfortable night in the hostel where we enjoyed dinner in the conservatory. In the morning we took the kids to feed the animals and watch pig racing on the farm. The boys also had a blast in the play area and trampolines. Highly recommend for a night or two as a family.

Good Points 1. Very friendly and helpful staff. 2. Spotlessly clean self catering kitchen, toilets, washrooms, etc. 3. Nice garden and surroundings 4. Plenty of parking - you can use the Rare Breeds Farm car park next door. 5. Very nice pub in Cholderton, about a mile down the road. I can recommend the food there. Some not so good points: 1. On the website it says breakfast and evening meal are available/can be ordered. but when I arrived they said they don't do meals at all. There is a cafe next door but it only seems to do tea and biscuits, cakes etc. and is only open for limited times. Luckily I had brought some food for breakfast, but this hostel seems to be essentially self catering. 2. No public transport anywhere near. OK for me as I have a car, but would be a problem for non-drivers (Amesbury is about 4 miles walk away). 3. A minor point - bedside lights don't work (not connected to anything). OK on a moonlit night but could stub your toe getting into bed. Despite one or two drawbacks, my stay there was pleasant and relaxing and the atmosphere was good. I would consider staying there again.

Really great place to stay with a car. Marleen said her best English breakfast ever, lovely thick tasty solid farmers bacon and proper sausages whilst we had delicious Eggs Royale and Eggs bendict cooked by the talented Tracey the English ex Hong Konger. The coffee was gorgeous with locally themed latte art - ask for it. Slept well in an ensuite enjoyed the lounge and also peaked into the large conservatory. Next to a lovely animal farm and for the Dads some fine Decanter award winning English ‘Champagne’ from the area called Bluestone. Only missed out on being able to get onto that balcony and enjoying glasses of bubbles whilst sunning ourselves and soaking up the vineyard view and trampolines. I think it was off limits.

As opposed to other reviews I didn't find the mattresses lumpy. The placed is cleaned by Michael, a formidable gentleman from Barnet way, who does a magnificent job. The manager Joshua is a very personable Young gentleman who I understand is recently single so book now ladies to get a slice of that pie. My 9-year-old loved the petting farm which is head and shoulders above similar places I've visited.

Here's a heads-up if you don't drive and rely on public transportation: Do NOT trust google map, which says that you could "walk" from Cholderston to the hostel. It's not true. Take a bus from Salisbury to Amesbury Car Park (The stop to get off is "Library") and call the cab "Henge". If you don't know the number, call the Cholderston Hostel and ask for it. It's £10 from Amesbury directly to the hostel. If you get the cab from Salisbury, it's £20-30. ---- Lovely place to stay, especially for family. There's plenty of space to run around and for a morning walk. The kitchen is clean, and the staff is helpful. I had a good night sleep.

Making Memories with Family wrote a review Jul 2022

1. . Property was in the middle of nowhere! Off the main road and not walking distance so don’t even think about this if you are not driving. 2. Room assigned to us was filthy and we had to remove 7-10 spiders because they were either on the walls by the beds or hanging directly over the beds. Bedsheets were itchy. I wonder when the last time this room was occupied😒 3. We were given a different room because they couldn’t find the key to the original one intended for us. Ground floor room has an “accessible” toilet - sink was really low, no proper shower division from the rest of the toilet (these are expected for reasons of accessibility but not comfortable for everyone) and cannot sit on the toilet seat without the cover falling on your back. Looks like our room was not ready for guests as there was a left over empty water bottle and insect repellent box between the wall and one of the beds. 4. Bed lights not working (just wires hanging off unconnected and with no possible point of connection to a power source) 5. No place to buy food after 5pm and earlier than 10am. We had to drive to the town centre to have dinner.
