We found Guyers on line and made reservations for one night. The challenge was finding the hotel. It was definitely worth the effort. The staff is a delight! Every person we met was attentive, warm and made us feel very welcome. We extended our stay after having drinks in the courtyard. The hotel could not let us stay in our rooms, so they moved all our luggage while we were out sightseeing. This allowed us to experience different rooms and different buildings. Our second night was in the main building. Creaky floors, low ceilings on the winding staircase and beautiful views with lovely furnishings. A bit of wear - but an obvious amount of pride in management.
Highest regards to the kitchen staff and chef. Especially liked Sam! The meals were creative and tasty. Breakfast offerings are well above the norm.
The location of the hotel is super. Far enough away to feel 'unplugged', yet a few miles from Lacock Village and the lovely countryside surrounds the grounds.
We look forward to returning to the UK and to Guyers House Hotel.

Room Tip: Don't depend on GPS - call the desk. They will guide you to the drive.

My husband surprised me to a romantic stay here for our 4th wedding anniversary this year. What a gorgeous little place this is. It is full of old english character and the gardens are absolutely gorgeous! Very popular for weddings there was a wedding booked the day after we left and apparently they are fully booked all year round for weddings. Pretty little courtyard where the old coachhouse stables (now a bar) are open serving drinks to guests day and night. The restaurant food is silver service and first class we ate ther both nights in the end as we were so impressed the first night. Laycock village is very near by so we used our National Trust membership to park there for free and enjoy the abbey. this is a cute little village with lots of photo opportunities don't miss a visit to the village hall where crafts and cakes are always on offer. Very helpful staff. There is no air conditioning so it does get very hot on the top floor and there were not enough electric fans to go around but they did try very hard to find one for us. We will pop back again soon as it is nice and close for Longleat zoo which I am dying to visit to see Nico the gorilla :-)

Room Tip: Avoid the top floor in the heat of summer unless you have a fan.

Spent just one night at this hotel last Friday and found it to be quite charming, as were the staff, starting with the manager.

The bed was very comfortable (always important) and the room had a lovely view over the gardens. The bathroom was definitely tiny, no room to swing the proverbial cat, but the shower worked very well and how much time does one actually spend in the bathroom!

Did not eat in the restaurant, but had afternoon tea sitting outside and breakfast before leaving, all of which was fine.

Thought that the price for B & B was quite good and am pleased to recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Room 3 on the first floor has a lovely view of the gardens

Really nice setting, grounds were lovely. Food was really good, breakfasts excellent and all the staff were very friendly and welcoming . Would visit again. I stayed here with a special offer on a groupon type site, so look for offers

We stayed here on a package deal with a sports car that we hired (Drive South West). If you are trying the find the hotel with a sat nav.... Don't, luckily, where the sat nav directs you to, the owners are the house are very used to lost guests and directed us down the road.
We stayed two nights and found the stay pleasant. As other reviewers have said, the staff could be a bit more welcoming and proactive.
On our second night,the hotel put on a BBQ and band for the guests this was nice, although food was limited.
On the second morning, it took nearly 1 hour to serve breakfast (and when it did come out, we left most of it due to it being either undercooked or burnt).
Overall the stay was nice, the grounds are lovely.

Room Tip: We stayed in the garden house on the groud floor... It was nice but there are no blinds or net curta...

Disappointed by the motel type room in the Garden Annex, but the public rooms are nice. Stayed for 4 nights reminding the staff each morning that I would be in for breakfast at 7am.Each morning I had to find the dining room staff to take my order for tea and toast, which they got wrong, even after writing it down. How hard is it to remember brown toast?
Two mornings I ate, solitary, being hoovered around, interspersed with the staff gossip from the reception desk: babies;lipstick......I won't go on. Upon departure I expressed disappointment at never being greeted in a morning, having to find waiting staff and why oh why the hovering at breakfast?
Won't stay here again; I was not expecting a sneer when I asked for a table for dinner. Bad show all round.

Beautiful gardens and setting.
Lovely manager but the rest of the staff seemed standoffish.
Restaurant served delicious food but there was a lack of atmosphere and breakfast service was poor ~ a smile would go a long way!
Small and overheated room despite having two fans.
A little updating to the interior could really make a difference.
