My best friend and I visited the Best Western at Limpley Stoke Sunday 7th August 2011. Lovely looking hotel on arrival, with a pub at the bottom of the short driveway. Beautiful views, which due to the weather were slightly tarnished. We checked in with a lovely, helpful young lady , who was very friendly, professional and informative. The lift reminded me of a guest house I stayed in once when visiting blackpool. I did chuckle at the fact that they had artexed the lift ceiling. The decor wasn't to my taste, but fitted nicely with the history of the hotel. We stayed in room 19. this room had a double and single bed. My friend loved her bed, soft and sumptuous. I prefer a slightly firmer bed, nonetheless slept well. Very warm and inviting room, warm at night, the bathroom was very clean with all the little necessities you may have forgotten.
We had lunch in the bar - we opted for the fish and chips - we can highly recommend this meal - delicious is an understatement. Bar service was a bit slow, no one actually in the bar, so I had to order at reception, not a problem though as once they knew we were sat there, a barman promptly cmae and served. We ordered the Sauvingnon Blanc - The Kings Favour, priced at £19.95 a bottle. very drinkable and palatable - complimented our meal very well.
Make sure you take cash as there is no cash points nearby - We both felt like real "townies" although obviously the hotel took card on checkout.
Evening meal - I enjoyed mine very much, my friend had the hake and said it looked beautiful, however it was watery - shame really. Breakfast on the Monday was very nice, Buffet style - we both really enjoyed until it came to the coffee - AVOID! it was horrid. but then again it was a good excuse to be able to go to Bath for a wander and enjoy lovely coffee and sights.
All in all a very nice trip - would I go back - Yes.
Hope this helps.
