Accommodation Description:

This beautiful period property is steeped in character with log fires paintings stone walls and period furniture. It is reputed to be England's oldest hotel, adjacent to the famous Abbey in the historic town of Malmesbury on the edge of the Cotswolds. Dine in Edwardian splendour in the award winning restaurant.

This ideal location 5 minutes from Junction 17 of the M4 motorway makes a perfect base to explore the Cotswolds, Westonbirt Arboretum, and many other attractions in the area. Cirencester, Chippenham, and Swindon are a short drive away and so are the Roman city of Bath and Bristol. We also provide gift wrapped chocolates and house champagne for those special occasions.

Please call the hotel directly if you wish to purchase these gifts and we can ensure they are placed in your room prior to arrival along with a personalised message
