We stayed at the Limpley Stoke Best Western for one night in April. We booked a Double Room that included breakfast and wifi. We stayed in room 25 - we had not requested a room with a view, but the view was nice enough for us, looking down the hill. The weather was cold and rainy, and the fog made the scenery with the lights in the background look really nice, especially looking out the large windows in our room.
Getting here was a bit of a challenge for us, but only because we had driven from London along the coast and hit some bad traffic. The hotel is hidden off of the main roads, but its a really nice location. The next day we drove to Bath which didn't take very long, so its a good spot to be out of all the busy places and avoid having to find parking and still easy to go to the main sites, etc.
We only stayed one night, and we had arrived quite late in the evening, so we were hungry for dinner. When we arrived there was a function in one of the rooms, so lots of people around, but no one else dinning in the hotel dining room, so we had it all to ourselves, which was really nice and quiet. We were served by a really nice older woman, who had set up heaters right next to our table for us, and made sure we were comfortable.
For Coeliacs looking at hotels in the area, I would highly recommend this hotel, as the woman was able to tell me all the meal selections that were gluten free or could be made gluten free. Once she was informed I needed gluten free, she bought out some gluten free bread to the table. It was such a relief to be able to eat and it was better that the food was really great.
Service from the front desk was friendly as well, as they did offer to help with out bags - something I found lacking at other places later in our trip. The room was really beautiful, big (lots of space!), with a big double bed, good heating, desk, mirror, tv and four large windows that look out. The bathroom was modern and clean, with a shower/bath combo, heated towel rail, toilet hidden around the corner, and small amount of bench space.
I really enjoyed this room and wished we were staying longer. I would definitely recommend it and definitely return to the hotel! less
