Today we woke to fog, fog, fog, which didn't clear until 2pm and we had a little sun peep. It has not been cold however. We posted 5 kilos of "stuff" back to Hoppers this morning - admittedly the heavy portion of that was binoculars. Paul and I have spent most of the day around the city precinct, walking and riding the hop on hop off bus. Bath has a population of ...
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 ...
... first time I have driven in about a month and a half, so I was really looking forward with it. Sadly I was saddled with a gutless Vauxhall of some variety which didn’t exactly inspire driving pleasure. Nonetheless we drove some nice roads through the countryside (in which I do not include the hideous M4 motorway) to Blenheim Palace. This is famous as the birthplace and childhood home of Winston Churchill and home to the current Duke ...
... days before their departure) it appears that a train reservation is enough to obtain the Visa, along with a complete itinerary of my stay. Sorting this will be my number one priority on Monday morning. I already have a quote for Ulaanbaatar to Beijing by train for £180. Not cheap but a necessary evil with just days to go to get this sorted. On the plus side it looks as if I will be in Tibet on Christmas Day. Looks as if it will certainly be a white Christmas for ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Old Manor Hotel Trowbridge
A wonderfuk stay
My boyfriend and I stayed at the hotel for 2 nights and we had a wonderful stay. The room was lovely, staff very friendly and helpful and food delicious. I will be recommending the hotel to everyone and certainly hope to return again very soon.
I booked this hotel through the longleat website and only read the reviews afterwards, I was horrified. Upon arriving at the hotel it all looked lovely and set in countryside surroundings. We were greeted at reception by a very friendly lady called Debbie, she checked us in and showed us to our room, which was amazing, one of the four poster rooms with raised bed and fabulous new bathroom. We went to the bar for a drink which is a nice area with an outside when its warm, we were again met by Debbie at the bar, beers consisted of Stella or 6X, I think they had bottles too. Breakfast in the morning was great too, nice dining room, where you are seated and brough tea or coffee with toast, then you have a choice of continental breakfast or a range of hot choices, I had the full English (obviously). Checked out with no nasty surprises. I would definately recommend.
my husband and i booked one night in the hotel at the dinner, bed and breakfast rate thinking it was very good value. i stay in lots of hotels with my job but it is still nice to visit some small country hotels. met on arrival by a lady who i guess was a manager or something - she didn't seem to have a clue, couldn't even open the bedroom door and looked completely lost behind the bar later on. she was also rude to her staff and very blunt with one customer who asked her a question. the room itself was nice - clean, good size but unfortunately with our bathroom window backing onto the bar and restaurant very noisy. The meal was simply terrible - the new chef mentioned in one of these other reviews must have had a night off as the starter and main course were inedible and the bar was the size of a cloakroom! the whole atmosphere was just not a nice one and our relaxing night away just wasn't an enjoyable one. Bill came to over £200 for which i got a loud room, few glasses of wine and a bread roll for dinner! don't think i'll be going back!
We have just returned from spending 2 nights at this hotel over the May bank holiday. We found the accommodation advertised on the Longleat website. Upon arrival I found that the receptionist was particularly unhelpful (we were staying in their on a diner, bed and breakfast basis) I wanted to ask questions ie, travel time to longleat, any recommended pubs.... and felt that i was obviously wasting her time. Evening meal was terrible, very short staffed and we found the food awful. I complained to reception the following day, again she seemed irritated that we did not tell the chef that evening - as obviously 'why was this her problem!'. (i did mention we were on eve 1 and you shouldn't tell a chef their food is bad if you have to eat there again!) We did not eat at their restaurant again so simply ordered a Dominios pizza! - Our final bill came to £388. After complaining the hotel let us off £20 as they changed us from DB+B to B+B However we were told the following day that as our board basis had changed we would no longer be entitled to the advertised half price Longleat tickets. so we benefited less!! Very Very disappointed felt a total waste of money, if visiting Longleat again we would stay in the Bath Arms (see longleat website) it is a public House but situated right at longleat - very picturesque.
We stayed at this hotel over the Easter weekend because we had seen it advertised on the Longleat safari park website providing half price tickets and we had been impressed that the manager had bothered to respond to people on Trip Advisor.
I stayed here for one night over a weekend with a group of 10. The staff were all pleasant and helpful, in particular the proprieter was always on hand to make sure everything was just right for us. The gardens are beautiful, and the rooms were clean and full of character. We had an evening meal and breakfast which was excellent.
Overall a really enjoyable stay, would definately return.
Great Diner, bed, breakfast
We were looking to see Bath during a busy Memorial day/Bank holiday weekend. No rooms avaiable last minute. Found this great dinner, bed and, breakfast--only 15 min scenic drive from Bath. Large, clean rooms/bathrooms with great B&B charm--tea service, televison, hair dyer. A bit far to walk to town but great restaurant and garden to relax in after along day in Bath. Would've have like to explore Bradford--seemes charming when driving through it...
* Well Worth a Stay *
I was part of a large group which stayed in April 06. The setting is beautiful - our view from the room was fields. The surroundings were quiet, the staff were very welcoming. Our bed had obviously seen better days (or nights!!!) & when we asked if we could turn it over we were told it was knackered on the other side so turning it would be pointless - depite this however, the staff did lay a thick duvet on top which worked wonders. I felt safe there & in the surrounding areas. We were in room 9 & my parents were in room 8 which had a real problem with the heating but as the weather was pleasant they had the doors open during the day - they did suffer in the night though. There is a nice lounge where board games are provided.
A very friendly hotel
The manager has a new chef, and what superb food comes out of the kitchen. The staff and management and very friendly and always on hand for any queries. We had the whole family stay here and there was no problem with special food requests or timely service for a large table. Tim (the manager) seems to take a real hands on approach and moved from one room to the next as soon as we phoned with a problem or special request. This is a lovely small hotel which I'd recommend to anyone.
Wow. Sheer bliss!
My wife and I stayed two nights at this lwonderful hotel. Excellent accommodation with very friendly and helpful staff. Great restaurant, and an ideal base for touring the Cotswolds. Bath and Bradford on Avon very close by and Stonehenge only a short drive. We enjoyed the magic of this hotel and the surrounding countrtyside. Thoroughly recommended for quality, peaceful accommodation.
