We loved the area of Limpley Stoke with family history and roots from nearby Combes Down. The atmosphere was historic and rural but it's proximity to Bath was a plus. The impressive facade of the hotel as a stately mansion from days gone past was also appealing and helped us feel like we were reliving a bit of history.
As for the amenities, there is a lift only to the second floor and many, many stairs. There was never the offer for assistance of any kind with luggage and although we could manage, there are many who could not.
The room we had was at the very top of the hotel and the floor only sloped downwards slightly, there were other areas where the slope was severe and it couldn't help but make you question the stability of this old building?
Although the weather was fair, it was not hot by any means and yet our room was so hot, we had the window open all night and a electric fan was provided but still with little relief. By 7:30am in the morning we sat out on the outside patio on the lowest level to get cool before heading out. So, for an overnight stay, it was just OK.
We did not eat at the restaurant or bar so cannot evaluate however we did have dinner at the 15th century pub across the street, the Hop Pole Inn, it was steeped in history and was a good, cozy British Pub experience and we enjoyed our meal there. less
