I stayed with my wife recently and enjoyed ourselves immensely. It's not the Ritz, granted but for the money, represents excellent value. The room was spotless! Decor a little dated but who cares? I had my eyes closed most of the time as I was asleep. Bed was comfy. Room was quite warm so I;d suggest checking the radiators before... More

Breakfast and dinner have been exceptional. Great, happy service too with a nice warmth. Great location to the M4 near Chippenham. Rooms are fine and guess reflective of the price. The pub section seemed to be popular too.

Booked a table for 6:30. We received a friendly welcome. Drinks took a while to arrive as was the order for food. Food was pleasant, a number of things on the menu unavailable. Desserts ok, not great. It's been a dozen years since I've been here and in my opinion the place has gone downhill which is a great shame.

We booked a table for a family meal . The staff were lovely and very polite . The food was great and plenty of it especially the cheese board. We had a problem with two meals not coming out but we were given free desserts and coffee . The staff were very apologetic .

We stayed at The Compass Inn for a couple of days in order to visit the surrounding attractions. We booked a Bed, Breakfast & Dinner package and arrived to find we had been upgraded to a very pleasant suite. We enjoyed the varied food menu both for breakfast and evening meals. The turnover of staff is low and it shows... More

Was on business in Gloucester but stayed here so I could catch the Bath Rugby Game (bath won 😊). Great location for the M4 and only just 10 miles from town. I'm a best Western diamond card holder so stay in the chain all the time. I'm afraid the hotel falls below my expectations in terms of decor. The rooms... More

We stayed here for only one night when we needed somewhere to stay near the M4. What a fortunate find it was! Nice comfortable room and the adjacent restaurant was a pleasant surprise with a varied menu and good service. The hotel was very helpful the following morning (amongst other things they lent us some scales with which to weigh... More
