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.

Have just spent a weekend here, as a birthday treat for the lady wife. We've stayed before, a few years back, which we had really enjoyed, but annoyingly this was nowhere near what we had experienced the first time. We had a package that included a rhassoul spa treatment - a treatment that we have experienced in many spas across the country. Well, the steam and shower system simply didn't work - or the therapist forgot to switch it on for us - but needless to say it was a bit of a joke. My concerns about it to the spa receptionist - after she'd finished on her phone to her friend - was met with the sort of look that they perhaps knew it wasn't working properly. The ultra fast excuse that the previous couple had used it fine, certainly wasn't prompted for by me, and the inability to look me in the eye was a bit suspect...almost as if she knew it wasn't working. I can't make any accusations, but her manner was very odd. She quickly offered us something with our evening meal to make up, but that never materialised. More on that later. Evening dinner was fine, but beware some of the wine choices. The Chilean Merlot is particularly thin (screw top bottle? Really?), and they will expect you pay a service charge - even if you're hotel guests! - for not exactly exceptional service, the minimum standard for which I would normally pay a service charge... but not as guests when you are paying many hundreds of pounds per night. Breakfast is okay, but the continental selection is a bit lacking for a four-star hotel and the pastries and croissants look and taste like they are bulk bought, and not prepared on premises. However, the waiter-ordered cooked dishes were better - e.g. the kippers were well prepared. Watch the overdone toast though. Maybe the foreign-speaking waiters like toast veering on burnt, but I really didn't appreciate having eyes rollled heavenward when I ask for burnt toast to be replaced. The inclusive afternoon cream tea the next day was shall we say 'interesting'. Again the scones were very dark, clearly over baked...what is it with the oven and toaster settings in the kitchen? I did wonder if it was us, but the couple next to us seemed to have the same issue. Not wanting to have eyes rolled at us again, we simply persevered and left early. Evening dinner on the second evening had a rather inauspicious start, when the wine waiter got my aperitif completely wrong. Considering he had mixed it fine the first night, my exactly-the-same instruction for a 50/50 mix of spirit and mixer was served in a highball, with one shot, and then filled to the top with lemonade.... i.e. As weak as gnat's widdle. What annoyed me though was the 5 minute argument from him and the accusation that I had (somehow) ordered the same drink differently between the two nights. We were both somewhat bemused and getting increasingly annoyed by a wine waiter arguing with us in front of other guests who equally felt the embarrassment. He very nearly got told to go by me, and a trip to guest services from me to speak to his boss, but I was not prepared to ruin my wife's birthday purely to sort out an insolent and very rude waiter. Evening dinner went without controversy, save for the bread selection which was decidedly 'old' and nowhere near as fresh as the first night. The stuffed sea bass was, however, superb, and the blueberry mousse is a dessert to die for. How come the chef can turn out dishes like that, but the pastry chef turns out dry bread, and the other staff can't do toast? A mystery. Breakfast the final morning was okay. But, yes, over done toast...again. Can somebody please stop altering the heat setting on the toaster! So, checking out was interesting indeed, and an exercise in whole new experiences in hotel charging techniques. We had a package dinner allowance towards the A La Carte menu, but were, unbelievably, charged for the side dishes of vegetables that we ordered with our dinner. Amazingly, the receptionist claimed that our allowance "against dinner" did not actually include the vegetable sides... those sides that were actually part of, yes you've guessed it, our dinner! I said that this was an absolute first in any hotel I'd ever stayed at, but she said it was standard for the Bishopstrow. When I asked why the offer advert clearly stated that the allowance was "against the A La Carte menu" - the same menu that listed the vegetables - she said that was the way they'd done it for some years. Hmmmmmmm. Note to self.... make sure I don't order vegetables with my dinner as they don't, according to this hotel, actually form part of the same said dinner. They obviously belong in some other alternative meal space time continuum. So, the dinner 'offer' actually seems to be something less of an offer by the time they have charged you for ancillary or constituent parts of 'dinner'. Will they be charging me for HP Sauce at breakfast next? Who knows! Anyway, at least she did agree to refund the Rhassoul treatment, but I noted the 10% service charge remained despite the inferior 'service' by the bolshy wine waiter. The room was okay, clean, but the double bed was a joke as it was two singles that had not been joined correctly, so I ended up in the mornings disappearing down a gap between the two very soft mattresses. Plenty of towels, and decent sizes, and robes too... although you are expected to use your room robes on the spa. Really? in a four star hotel? So, a rather disappointing stay, frustrated by hair-splitting accounting practices over "dinner" allowances. Does this hotel really need to scrape up every last penny from guests in this petty nit-picking way? So, I doubt we'll be back for a third time, unless I read that things have got back to a sense of normality and the staff don't pick unnecesssary arguments... and that the toaster has been fixed!

We had afternoon tea here recently. The staff all very friendly. The tea itself was very nice although the sandwicjes were made a little too early and getting a little dry but apart from that the selection of cakes was good. The only negative was the tea was in the room opposite the reception and people were cheking in and had to wait for the bell boy to get there luggage in the room we were having afternoon tea in. It was like having tea in a waiting room. Overall good experience but need a new room with out all these people staring at your tea. Collapse

We stayed in the Oval room which was excellent. Wonderful food and service but expect to pay over the odds for all your drinks including soft drinks. The staff were very attentive and helpful. The spa was busy but nice. Highly recommended
