Resources from the web site of Well House Consultants on the subject of Our training centre. We provide open source training course
and business hotel accommodation
in Melksham, Wiltshire, England
Most of our delegates travel quite a long way to come
on our courses, so our training centre is also a hotel -
which we run ourselves. We've two training room, five
en-suite bedrooms (which are of such high quality that
they're in demand from other local businesses when we're
not filled with a course), a library, breakfast room,
and 3/4 of an acre of grounds for you to walk in during
the summer. Needless to say, there's wired and wireless
internet and plenty of real coffee available 24 x 7.

Occasional visitors to Melksham often ask us how long it will take to get here ... and we're happy to provide estimates. I have traveled a very great deal within the UK, and based on distances, speeds, and road conditions in most areas I can come up with some reasonable guesses. Alas - it seems ...
