... the hills, they have had to underpin a whole suburb to stop the houses falling. Any construction in Bath today has to be off bath stone, so much of the city looks the same. The Abbey Cathedral in the city centre has so many rotting old dead saints in it that the floor is starting to cave in. It will be an interesting challenge for Jesus on the last day. The ...
Off to check Cardiff out. Another city.
Onto Bath - wandered around. Used the park and ride, which are common around here since the cities are congested because of the narrow 1800 streets. Definitely the best way to discover what cities are all about is (a) find the information centre and (b) ride the on ...
We've spent the last few days seeing some of the south-west of England. We took the train from London to Bath and were based there while we explored the area. We stayed in a great B&B in Bathford just outside the town. Like all good country B&B’s it had a pub next door, where we sampled the local ales, including "Bath Gem" (a beer, not a product you put in your bath to make it bubbly) and “Landlord”
I'm still attempting to get my Visa processed for my trip to China / Tibet. I though the Russians were awkward however that one was a piece of cake in comparison to this. I have bored plenty of people moaning about this issue now! The Chinese are very cautious when letting people see their homeland. That said, things are looking far more optimistic on this front, although the Chinese need confirmation of entry into the country (& train tickets can only be ...
... lots if sheep, I think perception is that we still use abacus and hand wringer washing machines (I'm talking a generalization here) because we are so small. But we are in fact so far ahead of the game BECAUSE we're so small. I suppose I notice everything because we're trying to get jobs done and everywhere we turn we come across a barrier to overcome, it is hard to set up, and because this country is so large and vast, almost everything you do is via a computer ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Calcot Manor
Staying at Calcot was brilliant. The staff were so helpful, setting beautiful, roms lovely and the food was yummy. In fact, it was absolutely faultless. Our daughter is only 13 weeks old so we were a bit anxious about going on holiday but we needn't have worried at all. We were able to leave our little girl in the creche whilst we luxuriated in the Spa so we really feel like we have had a holiday. I would definitely recommend this family friendly spa hotel to anyone, without hesitation.
Hard to find fault
Set in picturesque and peaceful surroundings we loved this venue. The staff and in particular those in the two restaurants were some of the most friendly that we have come across in the UK. The food was of very high standard with plenty of choice. If , like us you prefer to dine in a child free environment then choose the Conservatory. My only criticsm would be if like us you are given the Oxford suite, we found the noise coming from the guests walking around in the suite above a trifle annoying. However we were given another suite after we complained without fuss. Overall this is great venue and we would reccommend it to anyone.
Great if you have kids
Stayed one night at Calcot Manor so we could attend a wedding in the area. Can't say I'd dash for a return visit. Don't get me wrong the hotel is lovely, superb rooms, lovely clean bathrooms and very helpful staff, but if it's a peaceful romantic weekend you want with your partner then Calcot should have a question mark against it. The breakfast room the following morning was full of children under 3 running around and doing all things young children do.
I commented this to a friend who lives locally and it was confirmed that Calcot like to push the family friendly element. NOT that this is wrong by any means, quite the opposite, but I was just slightly surprised when having read so many reviews about how romantic Calcot was, i didn't imagine eating breakfast in a creche.
Wonderful and romantic
I took my husband here for his birthday and we only stayed one night. we went on a sunday offer which i thought was superb value for the quality of the hotel. other 5 star hotels i had considered were alot more expensive.
our room and bathroom was beautiful, the food was wonderful and the spa facilities are amazing - you must try the hot tub in the rain and wind - quite an experience. We will certainly go back - i even tried to book for christmas
Lovely place to stay
The setting is beautiful. The room was very clean and spacious and traditional (more of a suite). The staff were so friendly and nice which makes the stay all the more pleasant.
We stayed on a £259/night package which includes £60 spa and £70 toward food in the conservatory restaurant. This was a good deal but i would find it pricey at he weekend where just the room rate would be over £200. The food was really good but pricey.
Great Place to stay
Just back from a 2 night stay at Calcot Manor. Lovely place - lots of facilities including the famous outdoor hot tub which great fun even at 0 degrees C outside! Excellent food and service generally very good. Not cheap but worth it. Only minus point was noisy room (noise from corridor outside and adjoining rooms). Some rooms being refurbished - ours hadn't been but still of good standard.
Would highly recommend this place - you can pay not much less for a far lower standard in this part of the world.
Great courtyard hot tub!
If you like spa hotels that are not overpriced or pretentious and serve great food then Calcot is for you. The place attracts couples and families but the two are cleverly kept seperate which we appreciated. The decor in the bedrooms is tired but they said that they are planning to refirb. All the public areas are recently done and are smart without loosing the old world charm of the building. The Spa is completely new and very well done. Good treatments, nice pool (one indoor and one outdoor which they dont really mention in the brochure). But the best bit for me was drinking champagne in the hot tub. Very decadent! Service a bit hit and miss, but not so it would spoil the visit.
We stayed here for our wedding anniversary. It was fantastic. Very personal, had fab room away from it all. Spa was superb Meal Lovely staff all great. Thoroughly reccommend
Calcot Manor is an excellent choice for a weekend break. It is a really nice hotel and there is plenty to do in the area. Our room was of a good standard with some nice extras e.g fruit, home made biccies and tea and coffe making facilities, nice toiletries, good view and very quiet. The gym was very good, spa good, fantastic indoor pool, beauty treatments excellent (book in advance), outdoor hot tub next to a log fire. We spent most of the day in the spa using the facilities, even the changing area is spacious, clean and with good facilities. The communal areas are attractively furnished, lovely sitting rooms with log fires, magazines etc. The food was fine but not fantastic, service was very good. We haven't got kids but if you have they have a childrens play centre etc and excellent services for them - yet the kids don't get in the way of the other guests. Highly recommended.
