Back in 2015, I booked a 3 night stay at Bishopstrow House as a touch of luxury following 4 days at the Pop-Up Hotel at the Glastonbury Festival. (This post was moved from shanestravelreviews.com to it’s new home here on shanemcdonald.ie)
This luxury hotel is set on 27 acres of beautifully set grounds alongside the River Wylye, The hotel also boasts a boutique spa with an indoor and an outdoor heated swimming pool. There are 32 rooms available and you can dine at the 2 Rosette restaurant. The Hotel actually dates back to 1736 when George II was the monarch of England.
The hotel is easy to find and since we left the Glastonbury festival at 9am we arrived well ahead of check-in but this was not a problem. Bishopstrow House has great staff and our check-in was processed quickly. We were advised that the nearby town of Salisbury was good to visit and we set off for the afternoon to explore the area. When we returned to Bishopstrow House our bags had been brought to our room… and what a room it was. A beautifully decorated room, flat screen TV with multichannel cable and tea/coffee facilities and a lovely bathroom which has Elmsis products which I really like.
The breakfast is normally included in rate is very good with fruit, cereals, juices and a cooked option. The grounds are really nice to walk around and the estate has an old world feel yet being very much classic contemporary in reality. Free WiFi is included and again this is a real plus in my books.
We ate at the Bishopstrow House restaurant and on arrival we were shown to our table and for a change I tried a beef dish which is something I would rarely try, but it was excellent and very well presented.
While staying our 3 nights at Bishopstrow House we also had to opportunity to stay in one of the luxurious private suites. These suites are on two levels with a living & TV area downstairs and bedroom with very extensive bathroom upstairs. These suites are true luxury and if I was coming back I would stay here ahead of the main house – however I am very happy to have stayed at both accommodation options.
If you are looking for a luxurious stay in the heart of Wiltshire then staying at Bishopstrow House is well worth it.
