Tailored for the business traveller ... our rooms
all feature wired and wireless internet connections (broadband), large, flat screen TVs, large uncluttered desks with plenty of power points, mini fridges, laptop safes. And that's in addition to the hospitality trays, en-suite facilities, etc, that you would expect to find in any high quality hotel. Oh - and all of our rooms are double or twin to give you that extra bit of space, or to enable your partner to join you.
Beyond your room, we have real fresh coffee and tea available 24 hours a day, we have a public access internet PC (with a printer and copier), plenty of parking, 3/4 of an acre of grounds you can walk around, and we're set in a quiet location just a few minutes walk from the town centre. We don't cook food in the evening - there's plenty of choice of pubs, restaurants and takeaways within a very easy walk, And we do happily provide cutlery and crockery, and a microwave, for you to use if you want to bring food in.
All our facilities that I mention are included in your room rate, as is a superior continental breakfast, served daily from 7 a.m. or earlier on request.
This is a somewhat different set of features for a hotel, isn't it? Well House Manor
is set up for the technical business traveller to the area, and we don't compromise the facilities we offer in order to tap other incompatible markets. Our prime business is actually computer training - offering specialist courses for which delegates, sent by their employer, typically travel hundreds of miles. And we've learnt over the years what these people need, what they need to avoid, and what their typical likes and dislikes are. We travel ourselves, too, giving courses a long way from home and staying in hotels - where we can learn the bad and the good and bring the good back to Wiltshire.
"Hotel for Trowbridge" I've entitled this piece. We're in Melksham, a ten minute drive from the White Horse Business park. Our facilities are unique for West Wiltshire, I believe, and we've been quite surprised as to how wide our catchment area is. If you're a regular reader of this column, please forgive my shameless marketing piece. If you've found me through a search and you're looking for a hotel to stay in when you're visiting Trowbridge, Chippenham, Melksham or Devizes ... then look no further. You've found somewhere that's on your wavelength. We look forward to welcoming you to Wiltshire.
