“not for you if you have mobility problems.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2013

Our stay was booked for us by a relative,so wasnt researched. We found, no lift, ,bedrooms over two floors, we were at the far end of the hotel,our room was small ,overlooking the rear of the hotel no view from the window. Paint work was jaded, the bedspread was clean but had what looked like an a small oil mark that had not washed out .
As we were attending a wedding we needed a good hanging space to hang our wedding outfits, there was no full size wardrobe only a chest high open cupboard,we had to hang our clothes from the curtain rail,
This is a family run hotel and has the stables over the road which can be booked for a function.
Breakfast was well cooked and cooked to order,

Room Tip: Ask for a large room, our double was a tight fit.

I cannot begin to wonder where the people that wrote the bad reviews stayed.
We (10 adults, 1 toddler and 1 baby) booked the Farmers Hotel for two nights bed and breakfast to attend a family wedding. We booked in, no problems, we were shown to our rooms, no problems. Yes the floors and some of the stairs were a little uneven but the building is over 400 years old, what would you expect? Overall the building was in good repair
The staff were more than willing to help in any way possible, the breakfasts were all freshly prepared to order and individual choice, not to mention well cooked and presented. Facilities for the two children were available and brought to us as and when they were needed. The rooms were clean tidy and well appointed, some may say they were a little on the small side but that's how they built them 400 years ago.
Would I go back?
Without a doubt

Room Tip: Due to the size of our party we were spread around the hotel, all the rooms I saw (5) were all as go...

A really lovely place. All staff were really friendly. The food was lovely. Very clean. Excellent value for money. Would definately stay there again. Only down side was the car park wasn't very big, But that added to the character of the place. All packed in but no-one had a problem if you needed to move your car to let some one else out. All in all a fab weekend.

Just come back from a lovely 2 night stay here with our kids in a family room. Exceptional friendliness & customer service second to none throughout our time here, nothing too much trouble. Rooms immaculately clean, beds comfy, wonderful breakfast cooked for us by a lovely Italian lady, (any combination of breakfast foods cooked to perfection with huge portions). We ate here in the restaurant on our first night and it was also most enjoyable (we dined from the Italian Night special menu) and excellent value for money. Brilliant location for Longleat (just up the road) and Bath (nearby train station takes you into Bath Centre on the hour, no need to hassle with driving or park & ride) Don't go looking for chain hotels when you've got amazing independent hotels like this around. Definitely recommend & will definitely come back when in the area. Thanks to the staff for a lovely time.

Overview. From the outside this hotel does not look like much, but on the inside it is hiding a warmth of hospitality that is rare to find these days.
Its true that the facilities seem basic and the building feels worn, but has been given a lick of paint and as much as you can do with a building of this age, to be honest it had a certain charm.
I finally say that given what paying a night for B&B this establishment is a deal.
Hotel also provide wifi for £3 a night which was even available in my room at the very top, so don't begrudge paying it.

Pros
Friendly
Hospitable
Clean
Tasty breakfast cooked to order
Good wifi

Cons
Old building so feels worn
Basic

Stayed here for 3 nights, have been here before so knew kind of what to expect. Check in was okay, but room i bit tatty (but again i knew that), it was clean, the tv was old and the freeview box was attached via a scart lead, it took a lot of fiddling around to get it to work (could do with tv being replaced). The room was also clean and tidy.

Very limited time with the breakfast, only between 8am - 9am (even on a Sunday), would of liked a bit more breakfast flexibility.

Check out was a bit of an issue, the lady did not know who i was, how long i stayed and how much i needed to pay, she went from trying to charge me £30 for 1 night up to £120 for 3 night, she was in a right old faff looking at the paper book. As im an honest person i paid the lady for what i used which was 3 nights at £30, £90 total and asked them to call me if there was a problem. (They could really do with a computer).

As i said, all very average for the price, not post card material but if im passing by i might stay there again.
