I organised a cycle ride from Sandhurst to Bristol for a group of 17 people, we stayed at the Castle on Saturday evening (19 July 2014) and also had our evening meal at the hotel. The service we received was excellent, we were greeted by 17 pints of ice cold water which was much welcome after our ride. The service for the evening meal was exceptional, with one of the waitresses even going as far as to walk around Devizes to lofcate & purchase chocolate bars at 10.30pm.
The Hotel has a lovely character, comfortable rooms and an excellent breakfast. For anyone cycling along Cycle Route 4 it is within easy reach of the canal towpath.
