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.

I have just one gripe. The waiter kept topping up our glasses with mineral water during our meal (at least 2-3 bottles) and I was slapped with a bill for over £16 just for mineral water (over £4 a bottle- charged for 4). If you are going to charge that much for water, it would make sense to put it on the menu. Check your bill. The venue is idyllic, has nice grounds and easy to find. Great breakfast. Staff were very friendly and service was decent. Collapse

We enjoyed an overnight stay, quirky but good sized and comfortable room, excellent leisure facilities, very good restaurant although at times service a little slow. In general a very good experience but never reached its full potential. A few niggles such as extra bed for my son was missing from bedroom, asked for another bathrobe but person came to clean bathroom instead, porter not available to carry cases and receptionist did not offer to help so children ended up having to carry extra items, some areas looked a little tired but nothing that would stop us from returning for another visit.

We used our Red letter day vouchers and was expecting a stunning hotel and spa for the money. We were disappointed with the overall facilities. Everything looked tired and it certainly wasn't anything like other reputable spa hotels. We was hoping for a quiet relaxing stay. Sadly not as the hotel was mobbed by families with noisy children running in and out of the pools. However the service and food was excellent and made up for it. Sadly we won't be returning. It's probably ideal for families visiting Longleat as it's very close by. Collapse

I went here for a spa day that was purchased for me by my mother. The main areas I was not happy with: The lady I spoke to on the phone, Diane, to book in the spa day, proceeded to tell me how much the voucher cost and when it was purchased (during an offer period), which after telling her it was a Birthday gift, I felt was un-necessary (you just don't tell people ho much their gifts cost etc). I also noted my name was spelled incorrectly on my gift certificate and asked for this to be corrected - on arrival and being given some paperwork to fill in/itinerary etc, this change had not been made. I went to find the bar to order a drink to take to the outdoor pool area. The girl i spoke with offered to get this for me and add the cost to my bill which was great, however, I asked for a small drink and we agreed it would be brought in a plastic glass but the waiter brought over a large glass of drink. I was made to feel like I should go back in and ask for it to be put in a plastic glass, but he begrudgingly went and changed it but made it clear that as he brought a large drink I would have to have it and be charged for it even thought I didn't want a large (I was charged accordingly). There were only a few people at lunch however it took ages for me to be served - almost 20 mins to bring bread to the table, and the starter came 5-10 mins later. I had asked for no tomato, but it came with tomato. It took another 20 mins after I finished before the main was brought out. The areas I was happy with on the day: The staff were lovely and polite and willing to help especially when my locker code wasn't accepted on two occasions and I had to seek assistance The food, although taking a while to arrive was of a good standard and very tasty It wasn't too busy, so relaxing by the outdoor pool meant I was able to get a sun lounger and it wasn't too crowded in the swimming pool The facilities are good, indoor/outdoor pool and indoor/outdoor jacuzzi (although the outdoor one was covered over), great steam room and sauna, a lovely relaxation room, adequate changing and showering facilities. I also had a facial and a massage which was great - very relaxing. Despite the few small areas I wasn't happy with, I would go back as on the whole, it was a good experience and I felt more relaxed than I have done in a long time. I would recommend booking in advance as they get booked up quickly, and I can imagine if you go in the summer it would be pretty crowded, so perhaps look to go a little out of season - parking was also a little difficult to find as at 10am it was already quite full.

We booked a last minute trip to this country house looking for some relaxation knowing it was going to be a boiling hot weekend. Firstly would really highlight that this hotel offers complementary upgrades (when available), so we ended up staying in the Oval at the price of the Deluxe :) Do ask :) The Oval was a very stunning room with a nice size ensuite, and the best thing being the double roll-top baths with a view! We told the hotel it was our anniversary and they left home-made truffles out for our arrival, which were delicious. We arrived at 12pm and the staff had previously informed us that we could use the facilities until 3pm when our room would be ready. But the staff were so good and our room was ready from 1pm. They take your suitcases up etc. and show you around. We had lunch on the terrace which overlooks fields, the ploughmans was nice :) Also had pina colada which was so nice! We made use of both pools, the indoor one doesn't allow children at certain times - so this was bliss. No steam room/sauna but a jacuzzi, think the hotel could easily add these to attract more guests as they have capacity. Plenty of towels to use and robes provides for guests which is a nice touch. They don't mind you eating and walking around in the robes either so it's a very relaxed vibe. That said you can also dress up for dinner. Dinner was part of our package and have to say it was very, very good. 3 courses - all lovely and high standard. All drinks and extras charged to your room so very relaxed feel. We also had breakfast included and this was nice - pastries, cereals, fruit etc. plus you can order off the menu for cooked breakfast. We ate this in the conservatory which was so relaxing. We then spent the whole morning by the pool - locals do come in and use it too, but wasn't overcrowded. It is also heated which is great. We both had treatments which were quite pricey compared to other places we've been to, we were also told we would go in together, but we didn't. But massages were still lovely and lots of options. We had lunch on the terrace after we'd checked out, lunch was not as good as dinner. Sandwiches - bread a bit stale and quite expensive for what it was, but puddings were lovely (brownie and eton mess). Some of the drinks were a bit expensive for what they were as well e.g., fruit punch cocktail with cream was just juices and a bit of cream added - no alcohol and about £6-7. That's only issue really. Most of the staff were very nice, especially lady who served us dinner and made us drinks the next day (blonde hair with glasses). Guy on reception was polite and so was girl with dyed hair - very bubbly and friendly and went above and beyond. Overall we would love to return for another peaceful stay and would definitely recommend the house for a spa retreat! We would like to try the cream tea next time! Sauna/steam room and reduced prices on lunch menu, drinks and massages are only suggestions :) Collapse
