I had an enjoyable stay with the Limpley Stoke hotel over the early May bank holiday. Firstly, the positives: The location is brilliant, if you want to get away from the Hussle and bustle of city life then Limpley Stoke is the place to be. Although only 3 miles outside Bath it feels like its a lot further out, with the narrow country lanes and general quaintness of the village. I did find walking to the next village to be problematic mind you, as the pathway is overgrown with weeds and vegetation and is barely passable whereas the road route doesn't have a pavement for large parts of it, making the hotel seem like the only place in the village for socialising.
The rooms were all to a good standard, very clean and tidy and there were no issues here. The breakfast was excellent and I liked the idea of being able to order different varieties of eggs, as not everyone liked the scrambled variety! We also had dinner on the first night (linked to my earlier point) and this was relatively pricey, but of a good standard. All of the staff members were very polite and helpful and you will get no complaints from me.
The main negative to point out is the size of the car park. Initially it looks big enough for the guests however as we were staying over a weekend, there were wedding parties on the Friday and Saturday (not overly loud to be honest) however it does cause chaos in the car park, to the extent where we either walked or took public transport for the majority of our stay for fear of literally not having anywhere to park in the village. There isnt a lot that can be done about this due to the lack of space, however please bear it in mind if considering travelling here over a weekend.
Overall it was an excellent stay and I will consider returning in the future (maybe midweek!) less
