although the hotel is a little shabby and could do with refurbishing the hospitality and welcome was WONDERFUL! Nothing was too much bother for the staff.
The room we had was small but adequate for a one night stay.
We enjoyed a delicious hearty breakfast in the morning.

Stayed two nights over weekend with husband and another couple. Felt very welcome, cared for and totally comfortable throughout the stay. Food and wine was delicious and extremely good value. Emma was full of energy and always smiling from breakfast to last drinks in the bar.

Having deliberated on many wedding venues, we finally chose Shaw Country Hotel. I must say, Emma and Nick couldn't have provided better service if they'd tried. Service was outstanding from the minute go. Emma was there whenever i needed her, and provided me with the support I needed running up to the big day. On the day, no problem was too big or too small, and she provided outstanding service. Her team were exceptional and very helpful. When it came to the wedding breakfast, it was AMAZING. All the food was outstanding, made by a very nice chef, Nick. My wedding day was absolutely perfect - and that's all down to Emma and her team. So again thank you. You made it perfect.

Booked for Sunday lunch to celebrate a wedding anniversary, this was our first visit but we were very pleased with both quality of food and the excellent service. Priced very reasonably the 3 course lunch was a joy, also the cost of wines was found to be surprisingly well within reason. Perhaps not a venue for the young, no loud music or party atmosphere but just the ticket for an appreciative group of oldies.

My husband recently celebrated his 60 th birthday at Shaw. It was such a success largely due to the superb food, relaxed atmosphere , the wonderful staff especially Emma who was so helpful nothing was too much trouble. Thank you all for making it so memorable. Not many venues can do mass catering successfully but Shaw definately can! All 15 of us loved our starters, main courses and the sweets were divine!!

So comfortable. So friendly. A very warm and homely place to stay with a good bar and great food. Nothing is too much trouble when you stay here. Beautifully situated in the countryside near Melksham and handy for Bath and surrounding areas. My wife has stayed with me during my business trips too and found it like a home from home as well. I cannot speak too highly of this residence.

My partner and I stayed here for our Anniversary back in October. It was our first time in the area and it was amazing! Emma made us feel so welcome and helped my partner to organise some surprises, which was lovely. We stayed in the room with the four poster bed. It had a lovely view! The room is basic, but has everything you need for a comfortable stay so can't complain. We did not have dinner at the hotel, but the breakfast was amazing!!! Overall an amazing place to stay and many fond memories- Will defiantly be back again.

Room Tip: Four poster bed room- comfortable and beautiful view.
