“Could do better...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2012

We were cycling in the area and arrived hoping for sandwiches. The two ladies in the restaurant didn't seem too keen on providing food so we settled for two pints of Coke and some crisps. We were brought two 80% full glasses and charged nearly £6. The crisps never arrived. Admittedly there was nobody else there at 1:15pm on a Tuesday but it is easy to see why.

Three families - 11 people - stayed at the Parklands after a wet day walking along the Ridgeway. Fortunately we had booked in advance, as we occupied most of the rooms. Mark and Nicola were most helpful in finding places to dry our wet and muddy clothes - not an easy task! Everybody in the party were pleased with this charming little hotel, and the friendly staff. We enjoyed staying in a place different from a big three- or four-star hotel in a city. The food was good, and we slept well in peaceful surroundings. After more than a week in England, we considered the Parklands the best place we stayed.
Low ceilings, a creaking bathroom floor, small bathrooms? We found it part of the atmosphere that we were looking for.
We certainly would like to come back to stay there again, either as walkers on the Ridgeway, or by car, sightseeing this beautiful area, so rich in history.

We stayed in this hotel for a long weekend as part of a walking group. It is located in a pleasant village and the hotel itself is good. The staff were very friendly and the lady of the house was particularly polite and helpful. The food was excellent and the rooms clean but there were a few things which did detract somewhat from the overall experience.

In the rooms the lack of double glazing meant that the temperature at night was quite cold, while the bar area lacked space, at least when one is part of a group. However the main problem was that the food, while cooked to a high standard, appeared to be prepared by one person and, as a consequence, the time taken for meals was much longer than many would find comfortable. Perhaps this comment just reflects my natural impatience, as many would not be bothered by long mealtimes.

Nevertheless the overall ambience was good and, if looking for a hotel in this area, this one would be a good choice.

Room Tip: Best away from road

We only stayed at this hotel for one night after a family funeral in the area. It was just what we needed. We were upgraded to a superior room, which although very comfortable was still quite compact. The only real criticism with the room, was that it could have done with some double glazing. It was a very windy night when we stayed, and the single glazed sash windows rattled a lot, and let in quite a draught.

We ate in the restaurant in the evening, and the food represented very good value for money. We both felt it was a little bland, but was served piping hot, and with a smile. A good wine list, and reasonably priced.

The breakfast was superb. Again, the food was really hot, and an excellent choice.

We would certainly stay in this hotel again when we are in the area.

We spent two nights half board at the Parklands Hotel. Parking was easy and we were given a very warm welcome. Our room overlooked the main road but we need not have worried as there were very few cars. The room fell into our "quiet" category.
Dinners were excellently cooked and the portions were gargantuan. The wine list was also good and not overpriced.
All in all a very nice Hotel which we will stay at again when in the area.

Room Tip: Pay the extra few pounds and have a Superior Room. Also, pay in advance and get a good discount for...

Stayed here for a work reunion on 27th April for one night. Had a double bedded room at the front, very nicely decorated and with all amenities including tea/coffee facilities. Evening dinner was lovely - quite a mad affair as it was a reunion but the owners coped fantastically and went above and beyond on service. Food selection good and well priced as was the bar. Great breakfast with full English or other alternatives and also smoked haddock which the husband raved about. Hotel is about 5/10 minutes by car from Marlborough and all in all a great little place to stay and very convenient for the motorway.

Room Tip: Front facing room lovely and not disturbed by the traffic.

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights ,as my husband is disabled we asked for a suitable room . The room itself was lovely but the ensuite was very small so it was not suitable for any one with mobility problems. The staff were brilliant very helpfull and friendly as was the owner , The food was very good, although we only had breakfast as we were out all day, but we looked forward to it to set us up for the day and it was delicious . We had a lovely few days here and its not too far to the local attractions so all in all i would recommend this hotel but not if disabled due to the very small ensuite.

Room Tip: The ground floor room for disabled visitors is next to the main door . this can be noisy as it does...
