For 2023 (and 2024 ...) - we are now fully retired from IT training.
We have made many, many friends over 25 years of teaching about Python, Tcl, Perl, PHP, Lua, Java, C and C++ - and MySQL, Linux and Solaris/SunOS too. Our training notes are now very much out of date, but due to upward compatability most of our examples remain operational and even relevant ad you are welcome to make us if them "as seen" and at your own risk.

Lisa and I (Graham) now live in what was our training centre in Melksham - happy to meet with former delegates here - but do check ahead before coming round. We are far from inactive - rather, enjoying the times that we are retired but still healthy enough in mind and body to be active!

I am also active in many other area and still look after a lot of web sites - you can find an index ((here))
Melksham Hotel Rooms - pictures

We have chosen to show pictures of ALL of the bedrooms at Well House Manor on the Well House Manor website. We're not unique in this, but it is not the common practise; for sure, we could have just selected our best room(s) but we know that some guests want to see where they will be staying ahead of time, not where they could be staying if they get lucky.

The room rate is £90.00 per night, double occupancy, including our superior continental breakfast. We don't have extra charges for internet, extra TV channels, teas and coffees, early arrival or late departure - it's a simple flat rate so you know what you are paying and there are no extra on departure. For single occupancy of any of the same rooms, the rate is just £80.00 per night.

We're also offering over this winter (October 2009 to February 2010 inclusive) a "Winter Weekend Special" - stay for two or more successive nights, including either a Saturday night or during the 20th December to 3rd January period, and we'll charge just £70.00 per room per night, including one or two breakfasts.

"You're a business hotel - are you open for other visitors too?". A regular question, and the answer in an emphatic "Yes, we are" ... we're open for business visitors, for tourists, for people visiting friends and relatives, and for course delegates.

Our facilities are geared up for the business traveller - each room has a large table, plenty of space to spread out, lots of power points. Swipe cards give you access to the hotel throughout the day and night without having to wake the proprietor. We encourage our guests to order food to be delivered for themselves and to use our breakfast room to eat in. Breakfast is a superior continental - Yoghurt, Actimel, Cereal, Fruit juice (we have our own orange and grapefruit squeezer that customers use) and fresh fruit .. that's just starters before I list breads, spreads, meats, cheeses, and so on. The business traveller doesn't want a cooked breakfast every day. And he may want his breakfast early, or quite late if he arrived long after everywhere else was closed ...

Those facilities also suit many groups of leisure guests - the people who are visiting family in the area and will have an unconventional pattern of coming and going, the people who are looking for a quiet weekend away in a slightly luxurious setting, the people who need crisp internet access (including a printer) as they continue to run their own business. And we have some extended capabilities too - tourist information, helping you plan what do do while you're with us such as taxi bookings, lifts, suggestions of where to eat. We do lack facilities for children (in fact we can't accept bookings for under 14s and we have no family rooms) but what some see as a disadvantage others see as a huge advantage; it does mean we can have an openly accessible fire in winter, and books and games and much more in our homely lounge area, for example.

If you prefer to book on the phone, plase call us directly on 01225 709638, or our freephone number which is 0800 043 8225.

Update ... VAT is 20% from 4th January 2011. Hotel rates are now £95.00 (double), £85.00 (single) and £72.00 (delegate) to reflect this tax increase. Course prices - which we quote without VAT - are unaltered; most of our training delegates are paid for by businesses, and although the businesses will pay a higher VAT inclusive price, they will be able to reclaim that extra.

This is a page archived from The Horse's Mouth at - the diary and writings of Graham Ellis. Every attempt was made to provide current information at the time the page was written, but things do move forward in our business - new software releases, price changes, new techniques. Please check back via our main site for current courses, prices, versions, etc - any mention of a price in "The Horse's Mouth" cannot be taken as an offer to supply at that price.
