700 year old Inn
Centered around a medieval courtyard with stone paving, this is a wonderful old inn with an unbroken history dating back over half a millennium. We had only booked one night, but were so taken by its charm and history that we stayed for a second night. The inn is convenient to both Bath and Stonehenge, as well as many other sites in the area. Rooms were clean and well appointed. Headroom was limited on some doors (I'm 6'3") and some bathrooms were cramped, but all were nicely fit in without detracting from the original look and feel of this ancient inn. Breakfast was a hearty affair and service was excellent. We only dined at the Inn one evening, but the food was well prepared and nicely served. A number of walking and bridle paths cross through the village, and the one evening change ringers were practicing in the local church. If you are looking for a romantic getaway in a truly old inn with modern conveniences, I can't recommend any place more highly that this.
There was very little to dislike here. If you decide to go, you need to understand this is an authentic old inn which has been fitted as a modern hotel. Doorways can be low and some facilities can seem cramped, but all of the work has been done very well so as to preserve the look and feel of an old inn while providing modern amenities.
When you stay at The George Inn and The Plaine in Bath, you'll be in the historical district, within a 15-minute drive of University of Bath and Longleat Safari and Adventure Park. Free self parking is available onsite.
