Accomodation is romantic, comfortable and generous: spacy room, lovely garden, nice lounges, good restaurant. People are friendly and serviceable. Lovely place to stay for discovering Wiltshire.

Room Tip: Four poster bedrooms are the best, quiet, spacy and comfortable

Just spent four nights at Widbrook Grange Hotel, 4thJuly – 9th July 2011.
I’ll start off with the negatives, but please read on.
Originally booked this place because my wife loves all things Georgian/Victorian etc, when we arrived it couldn’t have been more perfect, until we were shown out of the house and into what can only be described as a “Chalet”.
These “Chalets” surround the house, ours backed on to the indoor pool, the decor looked a little tired/worn, there were very little storage cupboards/drawers so we lived out of our suitcases for the four days, the bathroom/toilet was smaller than we have at home and the one at home is quite small, our daughter had to sleep on what can only be described as a fold out camp bed, the worse thing were the thicknesses of the walls and ceilings, we could easily hear the people walking and coughing above us.
Widbrooke Grange is classed as a three star, Id give the “Chalet” a two star max.
On the other hand, the main house was definitely up to scratch, there were two sitting rooms, both decorated to a good standard, not sure what the standard of the bedrooms were though, the dining room was also well decorated, the house I’d class as a four star (not three).
We also had an evening meal at the hotel, the food was outstanding, I would give a rating of four to five stars for the food.
For those planning on staying here and hoping to stay in the house my advice would be to have this confirmed before parting with a deposit.

We stayed at the Widbrook Grange Hotel during the first weekend of July to celebrate a family birthday coupled with a visit to Longleat. There were nine of us all together and the whole party enjoyed themselves and had a great time. The hotel staff were most obliging and accommodated our large party with humour and excellent service in the dinning room. We all thought that the kitchen staff excelled themselves as the food was delicious. A really good place to stay and we hope to return in the future.

Room Tip: Just ask!

I stayed with my husband and my two daugthers a couple of weeks ago. We had a very warm wellcome.
The building and garden are beautiful as well as the surrounding countriside. The rooms are big and very clean and the beds very comfortable. We really enjoyed our stay in this hotel and hope to be back soon.

I planned a special birthday trip to widbrook to celebrate with family.having read the latest review with some dismay i was pleasantly surprised when we arrived to see a pretty old house in a lovely garden. overall our rooms were fine a little shabby and old fashioned maybe but clean with very good bedlinen and towels. however my sons room which was supposed to be a family room was rather cramped with 2 travel cots. unfortunatley the travel cots were totally unacceptable being both dirty and broken.Chris the manager did change one but said didnt have another and wouldnt accept that they should not have been on offer. The rest of the weekend was releative trouble free. Dinner was laid in the private room although I had asked for atable in the dining room which was on my confirmation letter. and the menu was definately a winter one although we were there in July.Chris,s explaination was that they were openning a new briistro and the chef couldnt do a summer menu and plan one for nthe new bistro ! However the meal was pleasant and breakfast was very good and the staff were delightful.

WidbrookGrange, Owner at Widbrook Grange, responded to this reviewResponded 5 July 2011

We appreciate this guest's positive comments on the pretty location of our hotel and that our rooms were fine, clean and with good bed linen and towels. We would point our however that the room mentioned was not booked as a family room and was not a family room. It was a double room in which the guest asked us to put a couple of cots, a service for which we do not charge.

We accept that one of the cots had a stain on it and we missed this when we put the cot in the room. This cot was changed immediately when the guest informed us about the stain. As far as we could see the other cot was fine which is why we did not change it and none of the cots were broken. (we did have a bit of trouble putting one up but when we got it to click into postion it was fine)

Because of the size of this group we offered them, at the time of booking, our private dining room at no extra charge, a guesture that they were pleased with and initially accepted. We assumed wrongly that this is what they continued to want but when they arrived we did offer to relay their table in the restaurant if this is what they preferred. They said that they were OK using the Private Dining facility.

I am pleased that the group enjoyed the food. Our current menu whilst having some dishes more in line with winter/spring also offers many other choices that are enjoyable during all seasons. As our Manager said we are just in the process of changing the menu for when we open our new Brasserie and guests will be able to enjoy the best of French Regional food in addition to our traditional "English Home Comforts" dishes.

Great hotel. Nice rooms and restaurant with good food. Very friendly staff and acommodated the use of a wheelchair user customer. Great little pool with very nice decor. Good location for Bath, Longleat, Bristol etc. Would definately return to stay. Old cottage, courtyard style country hotel with charm.

Room Tip: All room are good

Discreet & affable staff who appear to enjoy working here. The double room was spacious , clean & with good views over the garden. Bradford on Avon is an attractive town in its own right. But the Hotel location is excellent, with the many attractions of this area easily reached from here. We loved the pool, but best of all here is the food. It really is superb.
What didn't we like? The smell from the lillies, in a vase by the front door when we arrived. How picky is that? This is a great Hotel to stay in.

Room Tip: Our room was the George Elliott.
