Stayed one night in a Twin Room with my friend, following an evening session at the Aqua Sana Spa at Centerparcs Longleat.
The hotel is only a 5 mins walk from the very centre of Warminster, where the pubs and shops are.
No luxury. Our twin room (No. 4) had a single and a double bed. I slept in the single and found it extremely soft, but slept ok. The room had a TV (which we didn't use) and a small wardrobe (ok for just one night, though probably too small if you're staying a long time). It was clean, but could do with some maintenance (the window didn't close properly, the toilet seat was lose). Our room was actually situated in a separate 2 storey building across the street from the hotel/restaurant/reception, I don't know if all rooms are in that building, but there were quite a few there. It was fairly quiet throughout the night, but I don't think the hotel was particularly full.
2 towels per person were provided and I think there were tea/coffee making facilities.
There was only a single Yale lock on our door and the door from the street was always open, so we didn't feel all that safe, although to be honest, Warminster doesn't strike me as the crime capital of the world. It seemed a sleepy little town (at least, on a Monday night in March).
Very limited. There is a small courtyard by the building where the rooms are, with just about enough room for 3-4 cars (and a lot of maneuvering), otherwise you have to park on the nearby roads which unfortunately are mostly restricted, which means you can forget about a lie-in as you'll have to move your car by 8 or 9am.
We had breakfast at the hotel's restaurant. A choice of different cooked breakfasts, toast, cereals and juice, brought to your table. We didn't eat there at lunch or dinner, but the owners are Italian, so the Italian options might be quite good. The cooked breakfast was absolutely fine.
This is a place to go to if you simply need a place to sleep rather than wanting to treat yourself to a pretty little hotel. At £45 for a twin room including breakfast we thought it offered fantastic value for money, and that's all we were interested in.
