“Absolutely the best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2011

Getting a four day break as the Social Director of the 2011 Pigeye Jackson tour, a chaotic maelstrom to say the least, I found the Red Box to be the best ever B and B. It's quiet, cozy and so comfy. Julie-Anne is most accommodating with help on maps, directions, recommendations and even a quiet pause on the patio. The water is unforgettable, and the breakfast (I was told since my doc doesn't want me to eat it) was remarkable. She is one of the most agreeable people you could ever meet and a delight to talk to. She even showed up to the Pigeye Jackson performance on Fri. night with two wonderful friends to see what the commotion was all about. I needed the rest and respite and I got it. If I'd wanted, I could have jumped into the Tardis to travel time--would have done if Freema would have been there to help. Bed was comfy, water was delicious and the appointments in the room were complete. For the money, the best ever. I wouldn't have survived Pigeye's irrasible behaviour had it not been for this rest. Superb.

Room Tip: All appear to be excellent

I have stayed at the Red Box Guest House twice now and look forward to returning next year. The breakfast is excellent, the rooms are clean and comfortable and Julie-ann is unfailiingly welcoming and helpful. Unfortunately for me my trip coincided with a very painful bad back and Julie-ann could not have been kinder or more sympathetic - she even tied my shoelaces for me in the morning when I simply couldn't reach them!!

Small B&B in a modern estate house on the Calne side of Chippenham. Takes a bit of effort to find but the red pillar box is a good landmark and Julie Ann is very helpful with directions into town and back, and with anything else you could possiby want from a B&B.

Room Tip: There are only 3 rooms!

The first surprise is that the guest house is in a very quiet location on a residential estate and therefore not like a B&B at all. You feel as though you are entering someone's home, which in fact you are. Julie-ann runs this business because she enjoys meeting new people and gets satisfaction from making them feel comfortable and welcome. The bed was extremely comfortable and the room provided everything one would expect, The breakfast menu was huge and as the hens are in the garden, you know you will get fresh eggs. The only downside is that you have to share the bathroom, but I can't imagine that this would prove a problem with just three bedrooms and a maximum of four guests.

The Red Box guest house was very comfortable with a comfortable bed and excellent breakfast selection. It was very homely and Julie Anne could not do enough for you. The hens were fun to watch and added to the homely atmosphere. The guest house was also spotlessly clean

A very nice room with comfortable bed and although the rooms are not ensuite, a dressing gown is provided and the bathroom was close by and well equiped.

The breakfast was most enjoyable with plenty of choice - fresh eggs from the hens was a nice feature.

There was plenty of information available on places to visit in the area and Mrs Barrow is most knowledgeable and extremely helpful. I would reccommend the Red Box Guest House if you are visiting Wiltshire.

Great value and friendly guest house. Julie-Ann makes Red Box what it is and shouldn't change a thing. Doesn't even matter that the bathroom is shared, since there's only 3 rooms anyway, so dont let this put you off. Breakfast offered exceptional choice for the price and the room was spotlessly clean. A fabulous stay and just what was wanted. I think I would even be tempted to pop round for a cuppa if I ever passed through Chippenham again, even if I wasnt going to stay the night.
