Hillside B&B
Ranked #1 of 1 Odstock B&B and Inns
Reviewed 10 June 2014

This is more like a motel than a B&B. Granted, mein host Jeffrey was quite friendly, the room was reasonably clean, there were plentiful (but very basic) in-room breakfast supplies, and there is a great little pub next door. The price and location were also good.

However, Room 1 was extremely pokey, the bed took up 90% of the available space, we had nowhere to put our bags, the bathroom was ridiculously small, the shower head was contrary and we challenge Jeffrey (a healthy 6'4" chap himself) to take a shower in the cubicle built for midgets.

Room Tip: Don't stay in Room 1 unless you are under 5 ft in height.

We find this review unjust from this guest. We have been an established B&B for a number of years. The measurements of the rooms are on the website. We would advise Joules to study the website before booking so he could book to suit his personal requiremnets. We do have the large log cabin which sleeps 6 The rooms all have a kitchen with a fresh loaf of white and brown bread, fresh orange juice, jams and honey, 6 varieties of cereal fresh milk, sugar coffee and tea. There is also a microwave and fridge. This idea is very popular with our guests and does say on the website. A good proportion of our lovely returning guests come back specially for this service and some have their breakfast in our delightful garden.

Really lovely Scandinavian style cabin in the garden of the house, lots of space and excellent facilities. Really lovely people and right next door to a pub.
Only thing I would have liked more would have been a small gas hob or such like for cooking, but there's a microwave and kettle etc so all good really. Recommended!

A warm welcome from the owner after arrival. The is a good size bed, shower and kitchen.
The breakfast was served in the room, altough small, it worked out well.
The garden is spendid, and there is a good pub next door!

Room Tip: Out of three, we had the front room, no complains. Quit a lot of steps.

Just one night and wish we'd booked 2. Fantastic log cabin 2-3 miles from Salisbury. Very warm welcoming owner, absolutely faultless, I'd recommend this place to anyone. Next time in the area, I'll check if this place is free.

Room Tip: Log cabin is excellent, kids loved it.

We stayed at the Hillside B&B for two nights, Friday and Saturday, for a trip to visit Stonehenge and Salisbury. It was myself, my husband and our 2 year old. We found the B&B quite easily on the Friday night and there was ample parking across the street. Our accommodation was the private cabin at the back of the property, which had a fully stocked kitchenette (bread, cereal, milk, juice, etc.), and plenty of room for sleeping. The bathroom was well stocked with soap and shampoo in case you forgot your own and there were plenty of clean towels. Jeff and Carol we very responsive via email and were nice and welcoming in person. The neighbouring Yew Tree Inn has excellent food and service - and is family & dog friendly! The bathroom has an electric shower so there was no concern about hot water and the cabin was clean and well maintained. There was the odd spider web, of course, but it's a cabin in the English country so that's to be expected. We had no concerns while we were there and had a very pleasant experience. It's very close to Salisbury (which is a lovely city) and is only a 30 minute drive to Stonehenge. I would recommend this B&B and would not hesitate to stay there again.

We love this homey B&B. The lining are lovely and you have everything in the room. Fridge, toaster, boiler, microwave. There are plenty of cereal and two big bags of bread you could have. There are enough milk, orange juice and different flavours of jams you can choose from!

Luckily we have a sunny morning so we have breakfast in the garden!There are little wooden decorations make the B&B even more homey!

Just a friendly reminder, just go a little up from the pub and there is a stair to go up to B&B. It could be quite dark and not able to see the sign at night.
