Privately run hotel, with character

A very comfortable privately run hotel.

The tasteful conversion is a good compromise between retaining the character of an 18th century town house and providing the facilities of a hotel. The discrete reception desk in the original hall to the mismatched furniture in the rooms add to the character and makes a nice change from the utilitarian sameness of big chains. He staff were friendly and helpful. The room and ensuite were clean and well presented. We only stayed one night, arriving late evening and leaving next morning, so we did not sample all the facilities, but what we saw was good, especially the excellent breakfast. Will certainly be using again when we visit the area.

Small room. Good breakfast.

Very small room, comfortable bed.

Tea and coffee facilities is a plus. Tiny shower cabin with big shower head, not very practical. Good breakfast choice.

Visiting family locally

this is my third stay.

as usual the Experience was restful and comfortable. On this occasion travel plans did not allow me to stay for normal breakfast but the staff were helpful about this.

Lovely clean room and friendly welcome

This was a bit more than I'd normally spend but the welcome was friendly even though I arrived before the official check in time.

I got directions and a map to where I was going for the day and tips about events on in the area. Parking was included and so was breakfast. I opted for the full English with black pudding and was not disappointed - it was very tasty and obviously made from quality products. The room was small, being a single, but had an ensuite. Everything was spotlessly clean and beautifully kitted out with top quality fixtures, fittings and furniture.

Convenient for Trowbridge town

The hotel is more of a B&B with interesting old style rooms.

Clean and convenient for centre of town. Easy parking. Good selection for breakfast.

Comfy bed

I'd describe the Polebarn as having the feel of a good B&B just on a larger scale.

Attention to detail on the room furnishings was lovely and loved the breakfast room, it's very atmospheric and the ladies who served and cooked couldn't have been more hospitable.

B & B

A very warm welcome at reception , followed by a knowledgeable overview of the area.

The room was clean with recently painted walls and new carpet. Usual TV and tea and coffee facilities with ensuite in the room. In the morning breakfast in the cellar was very welcome, with a very good quality of food and service provided. Strongly recommend if you are in Trowbridge area

Lots of character

Having stayed the previous two nights in Premier Inn accommodation (which I am not criticising), it was lovely to experience staying in such a grand hotel.

Lots of character to the place and the staff very friendly and helpful. Other reviews I have read mention the "tired" decoration but had it been "top notch" then no doubt that would be reflected in the price which would price some of us out of the market. In all other respects a fantastic find with very helpful and considerate staff. Would highly recommend and wouldn't hesitate to stay again myself.
