First of all, this is not a hotel.
This is a proper English pub, and not one of those false 'big chain' pubs where originality is only skin-deep. This place welcomes newcomers too.
The staff are friendly, and Steve and Nicky who run the place want to make you feel at home.
I stayed here on a mid-way stop-off whilst heading to Wales and know of the area from when I used to live in Devizes. The room I had was a good size (the double ensuite) with super-comfy bedding, and this is one of those places where all the rooms / stairs are quirkily up / down, with low ceilings and random stairs everywhere, and hence bags of character. Interestingly the next night I stayed at an 'Abode' hotel in Exeter whose bedding (and room space) was distinctly inferior to the pillow and duvet here.....
I guess there are some places where a bit of TLC could be applied, but that is the responsibility of the Brewery (Wadworths) that owns the place, and not something that the tenants can cover. The bits they look after are covered perfectly. Sparkling clean everywhere, good honest well cooked pub food (that does not purport to be anything else), and a perfectly kept range of real ales.
A friendly welcome and locally sourced ingredients for a superb breakfast (PROPER freshly squeezed orange juice and decent coffee from a Jura machine) are the kind of things you want when staying away from home, and on a filthy / rainy / storm-lashed night this was as good a place as you could possibly hope for.
