A lot has happened in a year

It's a year ago to this day that we completed on the purchase of No. 48, Spa Road, Melksham which had been running for a number of years as "The Old Manor" B&B.

A lot has changed in a year!

We undertook a major upgrade and refurbishment in the first four months turning a tired but lovely old building in a high quality hotel for our delegates.

We had a "running in" period for the following four month, with our doors open to students attending our courses so that we could iron out any little glitches.

And for the past four months, we're been welcoming other business visitors to Melksham too ... many of who are already becoming regulars or recommending us to their colleagues and friends.

"The Old Manor", 2006 and Well House Manor, 2007 - Bedroom 5


A year on - from an empty property a year ago tonight, we have the majority of our rooms occupied. And rooms taken / booked right through next week. Guests newly checked have put their head around the door of the larger training / conference room room (the "Wilts") and said how much they like the rooms, and have given me a general idea of when they would like breakfast. I went through the various eating options in the town with them, and estimated how long their drive up to Devizes will take when they check out in the morning.

Well House Manor is open to guests staying in Melksham on business during the week, or visiting friends, familiy and touring Wiltshire at the weekend. All rooms are now en-suite with full business facilities including large work desks, flat screen TVs with 50 channels, and wired and wireless internet access. All this, and a continental breakfast is available at £80.00 per room (single occupancy) or £95.00 per room (double occupancy) per night. Booking number - 01225 709638.
