I stayed at Brookside for a couple of nights and it was wonderful. Chris was incredibly welcoming and made my stay there as comfortable as possible going out of her way to offer me a lift when it was raining in the morning! The room was clean and considering I turned up soaked, it was satisfyingly warm and cosy too....

I had the pleasure of staying at Brookside in January and the hosts went out of their way to ensure i had a comfortable and relaxing stay. Chris was incredibly hospitable, i had a job interview the next day and she made sure i was well fed, relaxed and on time, (my frosty windscreen had even been cleared when i...

Having stayed at a number of B & B's in the Devizes area we always return to Chris and Colin at Brookside where you are treated like family not just another guest. What we look for at a B & B is a good clean room and bed with a proper freshly cooked breakfast and we find it at Brookside...

Chris and Colin received us late one cold evening, graciously, warmly and without reservations. We had failed to connect with our intended hosts to the west and were wandering Rowde with no means of knowing at that hour what other accommodation might be on offer in the area. Upon dining at The Oliver Cromwell we had it from the owners...

We recently stayed at this b&b whilst visiting the local area. It's situated a couple of miles out of Devizes and as we discovered within walking distance of the Caen hill locks. The hosts Chris and Colin were very friendly and made us feel very welcome. The room we stayed in was clean and tidy and had everything that we...

The host, Chris, was very pleasant and welcoming, but I really don't understand how this B & B has such a high rating. The accommodation was very dated and somewhat musty. I don't doubt that bedding was clean but the surrounding areas were neglected - hair on bath, coffee mug marks on toilet and the biscuits in various tupperwares around...

Having read your recent review, we feel compelled to respond as follows. We have successfully operated a Bed and Breakfast establishment for a number of years and have never received any criticism about our hygiene, rooms, mattresses, breakfast, etc and in fact many of our guests return year after year, presumably because they find us good value for money. They...

Very comfortable room with firm bed. We had a great sleep. Breakfast was wonderful and Chris even gave us an unexpected gift for our stay with them. Postal code works perfectly for the GPS. We were only able to stay for one night, but would definitely go back if ever in the area again. Colin suggested we visit the Caen...

Thank you both for a wonderful stay. Five minutes after we arrived we felt we were meeting up with old friends. Breakfast entertainment kept us smiling all day. Brookside bear is enjoying his travels and has featured in a couple of photos so far.
