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.

The hotel is charming - a lovely old main building and the deluxe room we had was spacious and very quiet, with patio doors leading out to a terrace/garden area. We had a large, comfortable bed and there was a sofa bed for our son to sleep on. The room had a huge bathroom with a wonderful deep bath and a double shower. Kids are welcomed in the indoor swimming pool which is a good size and the water was at a nice temperature. I believe the outdoor pool is also heated but we didn't try it. Bar prices are as you would expect of such an establishment, and if I was nit-picking I'd mention being slightly miffed that we didn't get nuts and olives with our pre-dinner drinks whereas the other group in the room did... We booked a last minute package with dinner included which was good value - the dinner menu selection was reasonable, food beautifully presented and quite delicious (especially the deep-fried oysters and the panna cotta.) Staff all very pleasant. Breakfast was a little disappointing, the "full" Wiltshire breakfast was very ordinary but adequate. In summary, we had a very nice weekend and I would recommend this hotel. We were charged for dinner despite booking an inclusive deal, so do check your bill carefully. Collapse

When booking we had asked for a quiet room as we were going to Longleat the next day and wanted a good night’s sleep. We were advised we’d be booked into a room across the courtyard as these were the quiet ones so we booked for two nights to give us chance to refresh and enjoy breakfast before driving home. Our first meal in the bar area was most enjoyable, albeit draughty as the front door immediately behind us was constantly being opened by guests (there was a wedding reception under way at the time) and people seemed to forget to close it behind them. Unfortunately whilst there was a lounge where food could be enjoyed, there were no tables and chairs to sit at and when one is eating a hot meal, it’s very difficult balancing on your knee when sitting on the sofa. We both had steak and chips – all cooked and presented nicely and tasted delicious. Only disappointment was that whilst the meals came with a rocket and onion garnish, we ordered a side salad only to discover it was virtually the same – lots of rocket with olives … not a side-salad as we were expecting with cucumber, tomatoes etc. After a fantastic night’s sleep we enjoyed breakfast in the restaurant area and all staff were very accommodating and pleasant. There was a good choice of food both hot and cold with plenty of fruit, cereals and juices. On our return from Longleat that evening we again chose to eat from the bar menu – battered fish & chips which came with delicious tartar sauce and a salad garnish. We both had Eton Mess for dessert but sadly, whilst the menu stated it came with Chantilly cream it was actually served with whipped double cream – nice if you like it but very rich and heavy. It would have been better had someone told us before they served it as we would have had the choice of selecting something else. Tired and weary from the days activities we fell into bed ready for another great night only to discover there was a family who had been allocated the room below us. Excited children could be heard for some time and whilst they were quiet for a few hours overnight by 7am on Sunday morning they and the in-room television could be heard loudly from below. When asked by reception on our check-out if everything was ok I explained our disappointment at this noise particularly as we had specifically asked for a quiet room. We were told the person who booked us in was not at work that day and the family had been booked in through an on-line bookings company. This is hardly our fault and very disappointing that we were let down on this point bearing in mind this is not a cheap hotel by any stretch of the imagination. All the food we had was of good quality, well cooked and presented and delicious. The bed was very comfortable and everywhere was clean. However, having had such a disappointing second night I’m not entirely sure I’d want to return on our next trip to Longleat. Collapse

Room 24 was massive a large bathroom with two showers in a stand alone bath, toilet sink and seating. Bedroom also big and a lounge as well could not fault the room. Went for a walk in the grounds but could not find the forest. Spa was excellent with sauna and steam being hot, indoor pool was excellent and it was nice to be able to swim in the outside pool at 16.00 in March. Staff were pleasant and helpful. A wonderful stay. The only downside was parking as a conference was on and all the spaces were taken took a while waiting for someone to leave to be able to park. I would recommend that an area is reserved for overnight guests. Collapse

Stayed on Business in a Classic Room. £170 for two nights. Initially attracted as it’s one of the few hotels in the area with a gym. On arrival the hotel is impressive. Peaceful surroundings. Checked in and shown to my room. My first impressions of the room (No.18) was good. Advertised as a small room, however it was plenty big enough. First port of call was the gym. It was small however I was able to do what I wanted and you can’t complain when it’s included in the price. Back to the room for a shower and the problems began. The toilet seat was broken. Turned the shower on. No hot water. After a cold wash I called reception and reported the problem. Someone was sent. Whilst waiting the room above arrived. The noise of them moving around was very loud. By this time I was suitably frustrated and called reception again. No answer. 5 minutes later I called again. No answer. I then walked to reception to find them sitting there with no customers. Clearly screening the calls. At this point I demanded a change of room. This was granted and I was moved to another room (No.12) Room 12, also a Classic, was on the second floor of the hotel. In terms of locations this was considerably quieter than the ground floor courtyard room I had moved from. Unpacked and left for dinner (elsewhere), further problems straight away as the door was really difficult to lock. The door was rubbing at the top against the frame, this has clearly been an issue for a while as the handle from the outside was starting to bend under the pulling force required to get the lock to engage. At this point I couldn’t deal with having to point out further issues so went on my way. A good night’s sleep was had. The bed was comfortable and the surroundings quiet. The following morning I took a shower. The shower hose was splitting at the tap end, half of the water came from the head, half before it entered the hose. By the end of the shower I was ankle deep in water as the bath’s drainage was poor. I then left the shower to find puddles of water on the floor, the screen didn’t have its rubber seal so water has been going down the side of the bath for the duration. The mustiness from the shower the hung around as there is no extraction in the room, further identified by the mould on the ceiling and wall. It’s always really frustrating when a hotel which clearly tries to project pride in its appearance misses the simple aspects of quality making a comfortable stay. There is no way that the staff haven’t noticed the door is difficult to lock, the mould on the wall, the broken toilet seat, the split shower hose, the poor drainage etc. These are the aspects of quality which makes the difference and its disappointing that they are accepted. Quick fixes which if solved would in fact make this place worthy of what they’re trying to be. Collapse
