“One of the BEST Hotels”
Reviewed 27 June 2012

Stayed here for 2 nights in May on a Daily Mail " Offer " - £19-95 PN B& B. with Free Parking in the center of Marlborough.. The reception was fantastic, the room was very spacious, kingsize double, two lounge chairs, writing table, plenty of storage space, & enough room to hold a dance competition! The food was very good, good service and very hot & tasty. The breakfasts were TOO much to eat, all good produce. We ate at the hotel in the evenings, although booked in for B&B because it was so good. Well done & you will definately see us again

Room Tip: All rooms appeared to be GOOD, we were on the front & admit there was some council work progress...

The two great things about Old English Inns are that most are old coaching inns and many take dogs. The Castle & Ball has been beautifully refurbished: All the beams are still there, but the place has been lifted by a terrific palette of Farrow & Ball colour. The restaurant is cosy, the bar areas spacious and buzzing. (The dog sat in the bar with us.) Food is excellent value for money. Bedrooms are large with big wardrobes and chairs or sofas. Staff are great and service is spot on. Easily the best Old English Inn we have stayed in for a number of years. Looking forward to a return visit. Don't miss the 'secret garden' tucked away behind a wall.

Room Tip: There are ground floor rooms for easy access for dogs. (Or anyone with dodgy knees !)

Just returned from two nights at the Castle and Ball. The refurbishment is lovely. The room was very comfortable and well equipped with hairdryer, iron and ironing board. The staff are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Food is excellent value. This is the best Old English Inn we have stayed in and will definitely be returning.

Two nights in Marlborough at the Castle and Ball was a delight. The room 32 was big, bathroom very small, the beds superb, the duvets brilliant and a view over the marked street. Very good breakfast and lunch, very nice staff. All in all a very pleasant stay at an acceptable price.

We stayed at the recently refurbished Castle and Ball. The upgraded double room was much larger than most with original beams, chairs, coffee table, settee etc. Very nicely decorated and furnished with a separate small 'hall'.
The breakfast spread was superb and the cooked breakfasts very good indeed- also available over a much longer time slot than most. The evening meals were also very good- different offers available made it a good value choice, too. The staff were friendly and helpful, the car parking is free at the back of the Hotel. The hotel itself is right in the middle of the main street and Marlborough is central to a lot of places, Longleat, Stonehenge, Avebury, Castle Combe, Lacock etcAbbey
