I stayed at the Lansdowne this weekend gone. My son was taking part in the Calne Town Cryer competition over the road by the river (the hotel couldn't be better placed!) My parents were also staying. We spent the day in a nearby National Trust village called Lacock (home of photography) beautiful place to mooch about, we looked around the abbey and walked our socks off so we were really pleased the hotel was nearby.
The building is very old and full of character and personality. The bedrooms were bright and clean. There was a lovely lounge area around the bar and a cool courtyard with tables chairs and lovely hanging baskets by the car park (in fact this was the only downside the car park was very small) and on a warm evening it was lovely sitting here cooling off. I stayed in the superior room, very spacious, beautifully presented and I really enjoyed the Jacuzzi in my rather grand hotel bathroom. Being at the front of the hotel I expected to hear lots of noise from the road but actually I heard very little. I imagine the function room downstairs when in full swing could cause some noise disturbance though. The wine, beer and food were very reasonably priced. We had a three course meal and wine beautifully presented and tasted lovely, very pleased with the bill under £65 for the three of us. We went back in after checking out on the Sunday for carvery lunch - wonderful. The staff were all friendly and helpful. My parents and I will be booking again very soon as this was a lovely place to stay and we would like to explore the area some more.
