We breezed through the handsome market town of Marlborough several years back, stopping briefly.
This time we'll be staying 3-4 nights to enjoy the town in the evening and do a bit of the Ridgeway to Barbury Castle during the day. We'll have a car.
Hotels/Inns under consideration:
The Castle & Ball, High Street
The Green Dragon, High Street
The Bear, High Street with an entrance on the Parade
The Lamb Inn Hotel, the Parade
Have read the TA reviews of all of them but the impression left is mixed.
Any further input would be most appreciated.
Should probably mention that on the previous stop I poked my head into the Bear and loved the ambience. We're not looking for la de da, or House Doctor California overlay onto good old English inn feeling and atmosphere.
