"Using this hotel as working locally for a month. I was attracted by the motel parking for the car outside, and the location set in countryside and village of South Marston. Arrival was met with friendly atmosphere by Bob. Room was no.9 - was both clean and functional. Heated towel rail was a nice touch - and ceiling fan was useful too in the hot weather. Wi-Fi signal was good in my room. Overall very good experience and for a cash deal good value."

"All in all this place does what it says on the tin. A good quality restful place with a gentle atmosphere and enjoyable food. The service is kindly administered and swift."

"This B&B offers a nice place to stay, good food and is affordable. The room is large enough, the shower (I had the room with the walk-in shower) is a treat. Powerful, hot and spacious. I have stayed at 4**** hotels without this."

"This appeared to be a country pub that has extended its' repertoire to include motel style rooms for the business traveller. I stayed in a single room, which was clean and felt new. Everyone I spoke to was pleasant, friendly and helpful. This was a reasonably priced, perfectly acceptable place to stay."
