Stayed for one night over the weekend. Room was nicely decorated but on the small side and up in the eaves and far too hot. The bathroom shower had a mind of its own due to the low water pressure and one minute would work and the next not. The water temperature fluctuated also. Hotel generally was very nice although needs a good makeover if you take into account the cost of the rooms. The grounds also needed a tidy up. The spa was nice but the steam rooms and pool are in completely separate areas. The outside pool was open but was very dirty and should have been closed. Breakfast consisted of cereals, fresh fruit, pastries and yoghurt with a choice of a cooked breakfast too. Overall breakfast was good but on the small side. Stay on the whole was ok but definitely didnt have the wow factor that we had expected. Collapse

The Bishopstow is well located and sits in its own grounds which has fantastic walks. The spa and pool were clean and welcoming, definitely recommend a massage by the trained professionals to relax you. Great location for Longleat which is impressive, our 5 year old daughter loved it. The staff at the Bishopstrow were friendly and professional and room service was prompt, the service and food in the restaurant was excellent. Our suite was outstanding with great views of the grounds, overall, the standard was extremely high and we intend to re-visit the Bishopstrow in the near future, they make elegance seem effortless.

We went to the restaurant for lunch on the way back from a trip to Stourhead, and it was a pleasant enough experience. The food was very good, but it did take an awfully long time to come to the table. The conservatory where we ate was beautiful though, and lovely to be offered as a dining space. The atmosphere was very calm and pleasant, and it was an enjoyable afternoon. Collapse

We had eaten here some years ago (before it became part of the Longleat collection of hotels) and the meal and service had been good so we decided to book a lunch to celebrate two very special birthdays. On arrival, there were two young men who were hanging up coats by the front door, but they didn't have any uniforms or official clothing to help us decide whether they were employees or other guests. We went into the lounge to look at the menus but the waiter who came to take our drinks order had a very strong accent and we could not understand what he was saying. Eventually we managed to place our order but getting Worcester sauce for the tomato juice involved the waiter in several trips, presumably to the bar, to get the sauce and some stirrers and to return the Angostura bitters that he initially brought! The restaurant manager also had quite a pronounced accent and had to repeat himself several times for us to determine what he was saying. Perhaps they were new or relief staff, but our first impression of the hotel was not good and made us wonder if we had made an error in booking a meal there. However, once we were seated in the light and airy modern dining room our waitress was very pleasant and helpful and the food was plentiful and well cooked. The rest of the hotel is quite dark and not very welcoming. Also the Ladies cloakroom is part way up a flight of stairs with a door that opens outwards onto the stairway which could be dangerous if someone was going upstairs at the same time that a person was leaving the cloakroom.

Booked for a spa day for my mums birthday, we arrived, were forgotten about for 30 mins and then hurriedly shown around. No dry dressing rooms, mum changed in the toilets. Outdoor pool was freezing, dirty and obviously used as a garden shed. Main pool looked lovely, except all the green floor mats to stop slips, didn't help on the jacuzzi steps where my sister hurt her self quite badly and when she went to ask for first aid she was treated like an idiot for falling over. Lunch was nice, if you don't mind coming past the kitchen and plumbers. Staff were all or nothing- we were asked 3 x if the food was nice but had to chase staff around to order drinks. The steam room had tiles missing and the glue underneath was sticky to sit on- the full on Christmas music did nothing to add to the serenity. The staff told us the water would be turned of halfway through our visit so we wouldn't be able to use the facilities or toilets for a period. Great. The manageress was rude, they tried to charge us twice. I left stressed and annoyed after spending £400 to go for the day. I would not have believed it was rated four stars if I hadn't have seen it on the door. Not good enough Collapse

New Year's eve function. Waiting staff were delightful. Restaurant manager was micro-managing, and had lost sight of his overall dining room. When our monkfish arrived under-cooked, I could not get attention and resorted to putting my hand up for several minutes. Fish replaced, with more under-cooked fish, and a full five minutes to get attention. Manager then tells me that I do not know how monkfish should be cooked. I point out that I have dined in enough Michelin starred restaurants to know my monkfish. Cooked fish finally presented. Lovely waiter apologised for his "very stressed" manager. Next morning, breakfast timed to 11am as its New Year's day. Arrived at 10:20. Fruit salad all gone, and told that there was no more. At 10:30, a reception manager comes to tell the catering staff that this was not a normal Sunday. No-one had told them of the extended breakfast time. At 10:35, I was offered fruit salad! A number of other details point to a lack of attention to the detail that is essential for a successful hotelier. Collapse

I travelled to Bishopstrow Hotel hoping that I would have a happy time. Instead I was saddened by being put into a room( which was like staff accommodation) in the garden the furthest possible location away from the main hotel. The afternoon tea was average and not well organised as hot milk was beside the tea pots, and hot milk in tea is very unpleasant, and when saying to the waiter about this he replied that hot milk is on the right and cold in the left, of course I knew this !!!! I discovered after I had had my tea that the Wheat free tea For me was there but despite knowing who I was it was not offered to me until I had eaten the ordinary tea. I then later on Attended the dinner, which was very nice but not exceptional, no one was friendly enough to speak (the other party goers) save the General Manager, who chatted with me while I sat and watched everyone else enjoying their champagne ( I do not drink alcohol ) I was disappointed that they didn't even have a fizzy elderflower drink or indeed non alcoholic sparkling wine? I got a fruit cup which wasn't up to much. I managed to stay having the New Years Eve dinner until after the main course had been served, then asked for my desert and tea to be served in my long distance room. I was supposed to be staying for a second night, but saw no purpose in staying in such an awful room so isolated from the hotel- and I didn't feel particularly safe that far from the main hotel. So I checked out. So my meal and my one nights accommodation cost me £699 ( as a single person you have so much to pay for supplements, and no discount was allowed for my second night supposed stay. I wrote a polite note to the manager, who kindly wrote back, but no offer of a refund only a slight apology for his staff in appropriately accommodating me so far from the main hotel building. Frankly, I completely understand why people who are on their own get so upset about costs, supplements for being solo, about the lack of empathy towards people who try to be in the main sociable and still have a life on their own. And it was very sad that none of the other guests saw it in their hearts to be kind to a person on their own, I know that had my late husband or many of my friends seen a lady or gentleman on their own we would of asked them to join us, because we are kind. So I do not recommend the Bishopstrow Hotel for any kind of social stay if you are a person on your own, it is not solo traveller friendly. And it is very disappointing that I was not offered some form of refund for the second night I did not spend there as the accommodation was certainly not up to standard and should not have been given for a person on their own so far from the hotel. The staff worked very hard and were very helpful. Collapse
