Dislikes?
The Hogday Suite had a very small bathroom, wall paper hanging off, mould, etc. Rather than Suite it would be best described as a room above a pub. A well positioned local's pub yes but overpriced!

Accommodation Needs Updating

We were traveling through for the night and had a recommendation from a B&B in the area that was fully booked. The room our daughter and son in law stayed in was above the carriage house and was nice aside from the dirty shower. The room we were in was above the bar and though the bed was clean and very comfy I was concerned because of the dirty carpet and bathroom. Lots of spider mites and hair in the shower. Luckily, no bedbugs, just a shabby place needing a good updating and serious cleaning. Read more

Likes?
The staff were very friendly and our breakfast was ordinary but tasty. My husband tells me the beer was excellent.
Dislikes?
The shower was dirty in both rooms we rented. Hair on the floor, years of neglect such as moldy caulking. Used containers of shampoo and body wash inside a dusty storage closet, wondered about re-use.

Overnight stay at The Lamb Inn

I stayed at The Lamb Inn as I needed a place close to Avebury and to also continue my tour southwards in the uk Read more

Likes?
I liked the friendly staff. The hotel patrons were friendly. The rrom was very nice. clean and well appointed with a large comfy bed and en suite. Breakfast was very nice and again staff great.
Dislikes?
The parking that was arranged in a car park across the street was closed, and had to park on busy street. The pub got really noisy later on in the night, which sometimes happens in this situation.

Good Weekend Break

We stayed at the Lamb Inn from Thursday to Monday. Our room was adequate. Given the age of the Inn and the size of the rooms in these old Inns priorities have to be weighed up. The bed was queen size which was good, the bathroom was very small and narrow. Read more

Likes?
The staff were very friendly and the breakfasts were wonderful.
Dislikes?
I wish the towels would have been changed every other day as there was no where to dry them and in any case, clean towels would have been nice. I had to straighten and tuck in bed sheets myself.

Great pub, location and service

We stayed for one night following a camping trip. Everything was great - the room was fine, food good, friendly service. The pub was great with a well stocked bar. We were disappointed that they did not serve food on Friday evenings but that was probably our fault for not checking. The menu looked great. Read more

A pleasant stay.

I enjoyed staying at the Lamb Inn. The pub is very close to the High Street and within easy reach of anywhere in Marlborough. In spite of that the location is very quiet and I slept very well at night even if my room overlooked the very pretty beer garden. The bed and in particular the pillows were very comfortable. Read more

Likes?
Breakfast in the pub was particularly enjoyable. you could have a full English breakfast or just continental, there was a variety of food and very well cooked.
Dislikes?
The stair leading to the room was very steep. The wash basin in the bathroom should have a mixer tap.

Comfy, cosy welcome.

I stayed here whilst I was in town for a wedding. A lovely welcome. From the outside the room doesnt look its best passing storage rooms etc on the way up but once inside it's a real treat. Great value for money, lovely staff and a great room. I would definitely stay here again & am contemplating coming back just to stop at the Lamb Inn. Read more

Great Ambience at Lamb Inn

We were a mixed party of 2 older adults, 2 mature adults, and 2 young children. All worked out well for everyone. Our rooms were comfortable, clean, and spacious. The food was good (we had dinner as well as breakfast next morning). Our only recommendation is for the staff to have some help. The young woman who assisted us checking in was also running the pub, and was our waitress! She was too busy, and worked hard at all of her tasks without complaining, and with a friendly smile.

Cosy inn with character

Smallish room but fine for short stay and had everything we needed. Beds comfortable,staff and food excellent. Convenient location near town centre but only short stay parking outside, as you would expect in the centre of Marlborough. We were in the stable block which has steep stairs so these rooms probably wouldn't be suitable for everyone. We only had breakfast there (excellent) but the catering at the wedding had also been provided by The Lamb and that was also excellent. Read more

Average hotel, noisy!

Arrived 5pm Saturday, only 1 member of staff so took ages to get served and checked in. Nice enough room, bathroom ridiculously small and shoddy. Room was VERY noisy so didn't sleep well, curtains very thin so room was also lit up all night. Great breakfast though! Overall an ok stay but definitely not worth what we paid for it. Read more

Response

With reference to the choice of breakfast, the signing in form does ask what the guests would like for breakfast .If there is a wish for scrambled eggs etc, then the guest only has to make the request. We appreciate the comments and will be creating a breakfast menu for guests to fill in, to avoid any future confusion.

Description

Locals, visitors and real ale lovers alike relish the delights of drinking Wadworth’s beer served straight from the wood. There’s also a carefully chosen selection of wines, starting at £14 for a house white or red. Foodies very much enjoy Jackie Scott’s (the landlady) home-cooked dishes, which can vary on a daily basis from traditional and modern British dishes, to tapas or Thai. (Jackie also takes a real interest in creating interesting vegetarian dishes.) Accommodation comprises three ensuite rooms in the pub itself and a further three rooms in the stable block which overlooks the pub’s courtyard. The Parade, which has its own car park and is just two minutes walk from the High Street, contains an eclectic mix of trades and professions including other pubs and places to eat, bookshops, antique dealers, art galleries and stock brokers. In the warmer months, life at The Lamb — day and night — very much revolves around the courtyard. Colourful hanging baskets and a pergola (complete with its own vine) add to the courtyard’s appeal making it a delightful spot for lunch or dinner or to spend a long and relaxing afternoon with friends. Marlborough has always been a favourite ‘weekend in the country’ destination. Our central location, coupled with good food, the pub’s convivial atmosphere and high quality accommodation makes The Lamb an excellent base for discovering what the market town of Marlborough and this part of Wiltshire has to offer. And by the way, we have no problem with well-behaved, dogs and kids, or adults for that matter!
