“Nice little hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 November 2012

We stopped here for one night and would definitely stop here again.
Although there had been a mix up with the dates, Mark found us room without any fuss.
The room was spotless with a lovely view over the hills.
Thev evening meal was excellent - the steaks werere cooked exactly as requested and the food was well presented.
The breakfast was once again excellent - both the full english and the smoked haddock.
The owners are very friendly and I would recommend the Gold beer served in the bar - from a nearby local micro brewery - very nice indeed !!

Stayed at the Parklands in Ogbourne with my wife and also sister-in-law and brother-in-law whilst in Marlborough for a family gathering. This was our first stay here as we initially tried to get rooms at the Inn on the Well also in Ogbourne (but they were full).

Our en-suite rooms were both smallish (read cosy) but well furnished, perfectly functional, and very tastefully decorated, with nice period features. The beds were very comfortable, and very tastefully dressed with more than ample pillows and extra blankets etc. We slept very well.

Buffet/full English Breakfasts (cooked to order) featuring local produce were provided in a pleasant dining room. The cooked English breakfasts were well cooked and presented.

Service throughout was efficient, helpful, and friendly.

First visit to this Hotel. Lovely country inn, with friendly hosts in husband and wife team - Mark and Nicola. Nice double room for us, very clean and certainly adequate, for an overnight stop. Excellent, locally sourced food, with breakfast 'cooked to order' and of lovely quality. Will definitely stay again, when we travel from the Cotswolds to visit family in Salisbury.

Room Tip: Appeared quiet in all locations , but suggest upgrading to a Superior room.

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.
