“Different .........”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

Stayed here for two nights earlier this week with my wife, primarily because we were due to attend our nephew's wedding in Priston, we felt that it was too long a haul from East Anglia to there in a day, and this was the closest Best Western hotel to the venue. The hotel is located in a quaint little village just off the A36, and easy to find. First indications are that it is quietly situated, until you hear the first train rush by a couple of hundred metres away. However, after the novelt wears off, the sound of the trains in quite soothing, and you cease to notice them. we were particularly impressed that 'it is what it says on the box' in that the rooms and views are as described, and the car park is substantial enough to accommodate everyone. The hotel itself has seen better daysa on the outside, but this is more than compensated for inside, where the decor is tasteful, and the staff cannot do enough for one. On the question of staff, I always telephone beforehand with accommodation requests - in this instance, we got exactly what we asked for - a spacious room, quiet, and with good views. Anyone booking is recommended to request either 61 or 55 - these are very generously proportioned with commanding views - no the lift does not reach the third floor where these rooms are situated but, being in the rafters, they are truly quiet (apart from the trains!). The food and service were terrific, with a substantial buffet-style breakfast and, in our case, alfresco dining in the evening on the patio overlooking the valley. And, you can leave your car at the hotel and walk down to the river Avon, or drive the 3/4 mile to the Somerset Coal Canal, where there are delightful walks, and canoe rental at £10 per boat for the first hour. Our only cautionary note, which we found amusing rather than annoying - we returned to the hotel from the wedding at 10:30 pm, to find ourselves locked out - we had to sneak in through a side door - all added to the fun of a wonderful day. All in all, a relaxing, quiet break, and reasonably priced; we would certainly stayy here again.

Room Tip: If you want a spacious room, then ask for 55 or 61, although they are on the third and the lift stop...

We stayed here on a short trip to Bath. The stay in the hotel was free as part of us renewing our home insurance/car insurance/utilities (or something).
The hotel is in a nice location. Overlooking a countryside scene, we were staying in Room 16, which has a lovely view over the village and hills.
Check in was simple. Asked if we wanted a wake up call or newspaper in the morning. Breakfast was an extra charge and we were told where we could get breakfast if we wanted. We needed a taxi for an evening trip and the receptionist was pleased to order one for us for later that evening.
Our room was on the 1st floor and we took ourselves and our bags to the room. At the top of the stairs, the room was a decent size with a double bed, desk, built-in wardrobe, TV and en suite shower room. Clean and tidy. There were also tea and coffee making facilities.
It was a decent room with a lovely view but just on top of the beer garden. This meant people in the beer garden could see up into our room and there were no net curtains (only heavy material curtains).
Smoke from smokers in the beer garden also wafted up into the room, which was a shame. It was very sunny and warm while we were here. We wanted to open the window, which was an old fashioned push-up window, only it didn't stay in place once you pushed it up. We wedged the bin between the window and frame to keep the window open, as it was so hot in the room.
The shower was a little fiddly but there were instructions on how to use it. The shower was nice and refreshing.
We didn't spend very much time in the room. We didn't use any of the facilities (bar, restaurant, etc) at the hotel either.
On returning from our evening out, we went to bed. The bed was quite comfortable with good pillows.The walls in the hotel are paper thin and you could hear everything going on outside the room and in the rooms either side of ours. If someone coughed, you heard it. If a door opened outside, you heard it. And being at the top of the stairs, there was a lot of comings and goings (even overnight!). We didn't sleep particularly well because of the noise (and because it was so warm).
The hotel décor was generally "vintage" with an old country feel to it. I felt that things seemed generally dated, rather than chic vintage.
A decent hotel for one night's stay.

Stayed here one night on business. Parking was spacious, check in was speedy. Long corridors and an old style lift but no struggle.

Room had a comfortable and all the needs required on a overnight trip. Only reason I didn't give full stars for this review was because of the size of the rooms. Quite small and bathrooms were tiny. But not a major issue. I had a good night sleep.

Food fantastic beautiful and very professional service by the staff. Would stay here again.

We were planning to spend a day with family in Bath on a busy weekend (air show at Fairford?), and so found ourselves staying outside Bath at Limpley Stoke, a large Victorian hotel with a charming appearance and plenty of free parking.

Reception was efficient and helpful, when we asked for the number of a taxi they offered to make the booking for us. There was a wedding in progress as we arrived, however we were able to use the bar and lounge as normal.

Our room was comfortable with all the expected facililties, tea making, tv, hairdryer, comfortable bed and a satisfactory en suite with bath and shower, including toiletries.

We breakfasted in the lounge, and were brought a pot of coffee(compared to the other night of our weekend where we had to make our our coffee at a machine). There was a variety of cereals, fruit and cooked items, we wanted boiled eggs and these were brought promptly, although, as with many hotels, you have to make your own toast in one of those toasters where you put the bread in the top on a conveyor belt.

We found the staff to be friendly and helpful and would gladly stay at this hotel again. We were lucky on the morning after our stay to see a steam train pass on the nearby line, and also drove to the nearby canal to see the narrowboats, this would have provided a pleasant walk alongside the water if we were staying longer.

Thank you Thank You Thank you - my son married his partner on the 6th July and everything was done to a high professional level. From Katie the wedding planner to all the girls on reception nothing was too much trouble. They catered to my son's every request from the colour of the bows on the back of the chairs to the table layout. It was the first gay wedding my friends and family had been to and it was the best day ever.
I would recommend this venue to anyone who wants to have a fantastic wedding day

Great room over looking the garden with four poster bed. Modern and clean bathroom. Room service food was great especially as no tray charge added - a welcome find! This is an old building and parts are dated but has a country charm. Creaky floorboards but no other complaints from me. Staff were polite and friendly. Good hotel in lovely setting.

Unless you enjoy sleeping with guests loudly yelling outside your room, do not stay in this hotel. There was a wedding on a Sunday prior to our stay on Sunday night, and we got little sleep as wedding guests were yelling outside our door, in the room above us, and outside the front door just under our window much of the night. We did not complain to the front desk because the noise was so loud that it could have easily been heard from anyplace in the hotel. We checked out early and moved to a hotel at Heathrow Airport, which was much quieter than the Limpley Stoke. Otherwise, the hotel is pretty and the views are wonderful. We might have enjoyed our stay if not for the noise.

Dear Donna4678

Thank you for your review. Please accept my sincere apologies for not exceeding your expectations during your recent visit to our hotel and for any noise disturbance encountered. The hotel is a very popular venue for weddings and events and we do make every effort to inform all potential guests of such events during their stay. This information is posted on all websites and external booking agents so that we can offer as much advance notice to potential guest as possible.
I can completely understand that you may not have expected a wedding on a Sunday and felt it unnecessary to contact the hotel prior to your booking or arrival, however this does not make up for the fact that you encountered such a level of noise disturbance. We do ask all guests at the hotel to kindly keep in mind other guests when entering or exiting the property during such events and should you have bought your concerns to the attention of a duty manager I would like to assure you that they would have done everything possible to remedy the situation and avoid any further disturbance.

I was however very pleased to read that you found our period property and views ‘wonderful’. I do hope we have the opportunity to welcome you back once again so that you may experience our hotel and the level of service our dedicated team pride themselves on.

Thank you for choosing the Limpley Stoke Hotel.
