“Delicious and friendly”
Reviewed 31 December 2013

Breakfast is a delight. The homemade jams and marmelade are outstanding, particularly the lemon curd and its passion-fruit sister. Warm, charming and friendly hosts. Cosy, quiet rooms. Pleasant location. We'll return.

Stayed here for one night on route to the south coast and would recommend Lancers House as a great base to explore the surrounding area. We were made most welcome during our stay, and nothing was too much trouble from our hosts. The room was spotlessly clean with a lovely comfy bed.
We decided to eat at Lancers House rather than travel to the village for a pub meal. What a great decision it was. Home cooked beautiful food, plus generous portions and a nice selection of wines, meant we had a real treat.
Breakfast was a delight as well. Its a shame we could not stay longer.

Home cooked breakfasts so tasty and wholesome that we booked for supper too! Hosts were very friendly without being intrusive. Rooms spotless and tastefully decorated. Very conveniently located for Salisbury, Stonehenge and Longleat.

Perfect location for visiting Salisbury, Winchester and surrounding areas. We stayed here for two nights on the fantastic KGB offer, which included a delicious home cooked evening meal and two excellent breakfasts. The room was very clean with a particularly comfortable bed. The owners were extremely warm, friendly and very helpful. We would therefore definitely recommend this place to stay.

Our breakfast offering includes various vegetarian options as well as homemade produce including marmalade, preserves, sausages and our butter is even home churned. The eggs come from our own free range hens that can be spotted foraging around the grounds and we bake a variety of breads on a daily basis.Why not relax in the guest lounge which is equipped with a TV and comfy sofa's. You could even enrol in one of our artisan bread making courses.Lancers House offers all the comforts of a smart hotel but at bed and breakfast prices and backed up with our personal service.Lancers House is a great base for exploring the South and South/West of England.
