Stayed during the last weekend of November with a friend as part of a combined shopping and spa trip to Bath and Lucknam Park. Room cost £140 b&b (room 12) and it was lovely with twin beds, plenty of space, tea and coffee and a nice bathroom with White Company toiletries. I had stayed here before about 10 years ago and was pleased to see standards had been well maintained even though it has changed hands since.
The only negatives were that there was nowhere to put your things in the bathroom, despite it being very spacious and we had to ask for help to get the heat working in there.
Breakfast was excellent but dinner the previous night was overpriced and not particularly enjoyable. Maybe we ordered the wrong thing (we both had the lamb neck) but it was disappointing as the food used to be the reason to stay here. I would advise eating out in Bath or up at The Manor instead.
The village is beautiful if you have time to explore and it's only 20 mins from Bath and less than a 10 minute drive from Lucknam Park so the location works perfectly.
Don't get caught out with the parking. It's extremely limited in the village and whilst there are a few spaces on the hill on the way out of the village, it's not lit at all and you really need a torch to see where you're going.
Overall it does represent good value for money due to the location and the nice rooms but my advice is to eat elsewhere.
