Picture perfect yet liveable
We loved the place so much we opted out of touring, just so we could enjoy the premises. Thank you for looking after the details so we didn’t have to.
Thank you so much for your review. We are delighted that you've enjoyed your stay at Hinton Lodge and hope to welcome you again in the future. We really appreciate your feedback.
Stayed for 3 nights and I have say this is the best place that we stayed during our 2 weeks vacation exploring Cotswold. The lodge was a really awesome country home living. It was very quiet, very homey, and quite comfortable. My wife wished that we could stay longer. Everything worked, appliances, water heater, heater, etc. Communication with the owner was very quick and easy. My son was excited with the horse next door. I would, without a doubt, stay here again if I were in the area.
Thank you so much for your review. We are so delighted that you had a great stay and would love to welcome you again in the future. Best wishes, Clea
Our Stay at Hinton Lodge
Sweet little place which acted as a good base to go to Longleat. In lovely surroundings . The cottage was warm and it was useful having WIFI. The box of toys came in very useful and the way the cot was made caused great excitement when my grand daughter arrived. ( Very bright and welcoming)
Cannot fault the communication between the owner and us before hand. Cleo was so welcoming and warming in her messages to me.
The only matters I would bring to the attention of the owner is below. This is not criticism but hopefully helpful points for the future and to make other potential clients stay a successful one ( I DO NOT FEEL THIS NEEDS TO BE PRINTED BUT TO ACT AS AN AID MEMOIR TO THE OWNER) :
The dishwasher contained dirty crockery on arrival. Even the frying pan was in there and was dirty. This meant there were no spoons to use so we had to wash up what was in the dish washer before eating.
The single beds creaked so every time my husband and I moved we woke each other up. In need of new mattresses and a few tightening of screws.Not good for those with bad backs.
The shower was hard to regulate so someone with thick hair found it difficult as temperature kept changing and it trickled.
There were only 4 dining chairs initially. We had to ask for another as my Granddaughter needed one to put the booster seat on. This was given to us in a timely manner but the fact there was a cot provided I would have expected the owner would have known we would have needed a chair to put the booster seat on.
As I said we had a lovely time and I am hoping my comments above aid to help for the future renting of the place.
Dear Amanda, Thank you so much for taking the time to review Hinton Lodge. Your feedback is invaluable and we are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay overall. We have very much taken your comments on board and can only apologise profusely for the dirty dishes in the dishwasher on your arrival. It has never happened before, our housekeeper is literally mortified about the fact that she forgot to check the dishwasher when she cleaned the kitchen. I can assure you that it won't be happening again.
We hope that despite all the things that you pointed out, you still managed to have a wonderful holiday. Very best wishes, Clea
Lovely, well equipped cottage.
We stayed for 4 nights at the cottage & everything was excellent. The kitchen was well equipped, the bed in the master bedroom was super comfy! The weather was quite cold but we were snug & cosy in the cottage. We met the owner briefly, she is lovely & was helpful & informative regarding things to do in the area. I only have positive things to say. We hope to return one day!
Thank you for your lovely review. We are so happy that you have had a wonderful time at Hinton Lodge and can't wait to welcome you back again in the future. :-)
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hinton Lodge. The accommodations were 5 star. Very clean and comfortable. Location was ideal for visiting nearby sites. Welcome bottle of wine was very nice. Highly recommended!
Victorian cottage in rural location
A very well equipped cottage, providing all the essentials for a pleasant stay. There's even an open fire for chilly evenings. The hosts very thoughtfully provided items such as milk, toilet rolls, coffee pods, few tea bags until you could buy your own. Even a bottle of wine was available, which we have to say was so delicious that we need to find where to buy it. The location was rural and quiet with great views around. We explored Somerset, Wiltshire and the Cotswolds so it was a convenient base from which to travel. We will certainly want to return one day.
