“Functional and reasonable value”
Reviewed 3 February 2014

Having only used it as somewhere to sleep I can't comment on the food or other facilities, the rooms are functional and on the small size but clean. It's on the outskirts of town so location can be good or bad depending on your needs, but if only paying £35 per night it's a relatively good deal.

My surprise party was organised for me by my wife and she was given immense help and guidance by Liz to get every thing just right.And it was just that!! A tremendously enjoyable Day.The service was good.The food was excellent,the tables were beautifully presented and even the chairs were dressed.Everything had been thought of down to every last little detail.I would and already have recommended this as an excellent venue for occasions such as mine. No one stayed the night so we can not comment on the rooms but I am sure some of the 'dissatisfied' comments by other conference customers were not entirely accurate!! Beds are perhaps usually only too small if the occupants are too big!! Value for money? I am not able to comment as this was another thing that was kept secret from me. My only criticism is that the buffet was removed rather too soon so that late comers had to request a plate of food to be be brought back or missed the buffet altogether.Otherwise an excellent day.I would certainly use Lydiard House for another occasion.Thanks to all the helpful,courteous and attentive staff.

Booked a room via late rooms for £35. For the money it was fine. Clean, quiet and warm. The furniture was a bit dated but that is a minor quibble. Staff friendly and helpful. Car park close to reception. It is functional. Don't expect luxury accommodation and you won't be disappointed. Don't be fooled by the photo though. The actual conference centre is a 1970's block.

Sandra on reception wAs very helpful and attentive, when we requested a room change to look over at the church rather than the cafe.
Stayed for a murder mystery event which was fabulous. Great meal and the bar not over priced.

I agree the beds really are two small for two. But was well presented.

Breakfast was lovely, although I am not a fan of queuing at the toaster; would be better arranged by staff.

I must add we had a great time but breakfast was two long tables to share with everyone. Romantic? Defiantly not. And near the end of service guests were struggling to pick out the vacant seats.
Pool seemed chilly and the sauna was not turned on :(

Room Tip: If you are not scared of cemeteries ask for a room with a view of the church, much prettier that loo...

The setting is beautiful and the centre is ideal for conferences. Even though it is made clear when booking that the bed is only a small double it was a shock to see how small a 4ft bed is. Two people cannot comfortably sleep in such a small bed and it is unfair to expect them too. Put in larger beds and I would book again as the rooms are clean, in fairly good decorative order and the breakfast was excellent. The sleepless night spoilt the experience unfortunately and you will continue to get reviews like this until you sought out the bed situation.

Excellent value and highly recommended for single room occupancy only. Our double bed was too small for 2 people. Pool very inviting but didn't use. Staff very attentive. Very good breakfast and lovely grounds
