Well House Manor
Resources from the web site of Well House Consultants on the subject of Well House Manor. We provide open source training course and business hotel accommodation in Melksham, Wiltshire, England

Background
Delegates who come on our courses, and business visitors to other companies in Melksham are looking for large rooms in a quiet location, with parking yet close to the town centre. They're looking for large screen TVs, ensuite rooms, internet access, plenty of power points, good coffee, a healthy breakfast ... and an absence of children running around. Oh - and they want to pay by credit card, Visa, MasterCard or AmEx.

4101POETS day at Well House Manor
It's POETS day - "Push off Early - Tomorrow's Saturday". No course, no events at the hotel. Sarah, who usually does the Friday morning shift, took the day as holiday and I stood in with a view to catching up on a few things I needed to do, expecting it to be quiet. I also decided to log comings and goings ...

525Vision AND venture
"Vision is not enough - it must be combined with venture." That's what the slip of paper in my fortune cookie at the Chinese Restaurant told me last Friday night. A wise saying which I folded carefully and slipped into my credit card holder. The lady at Chan's Kitchen in Devizes where we eat from time ...

1.  We're getting busier and busier at Well House Manor 2. Many of our guests are returning guests - we're seeing familiar faces for our cream teas, and some of our hotel guests have been with us dozens of times. What does 1. plus 2. mean?

Wiltshire is a beautiful county, and Melksham has some gems, and is an excellent touring base too. This is the Pack Horse Bridge - perhaps 300 years old - a short distance downriver from the town.

2962Well House Manor - the history of the hotel
Well House Manor was built in 1906, as a home, on a 3/4 acre plot on what was then the outskirts of a much smaller Melksham. Originally, the staircase lead up from the right of the entrance door, and we believe that the ceiling was much higher, there being no room above. Around 1920, the staircase ...

We're just half a dozen days into the new year, and already I can show you a contrast is pictures ... of the hotel and training centre, and of our home / HQ (that latter being a semi, and not the whole building! It was predicted that last night would end with us a foot deep in snow - that turned out ...

Cruise Liner in Venice. Waiting for a pizza in the Acropolis on Tuesday, I was reading the material they provided ("The Sun").

575Eating for the single business traveller
Hello from Southend, where I'm giving a private course on Apache httpd and Tomcat. Last night, a cold January evening left me preferring to stick around my hotel and the attached restaurant / pub rather than traipse down to a blustery Seafront, and that gave me an opportunity to catch up on some sleep ...

I wanted to do a few conversions between hectares and acres and - guess what - I didn't know the conversion values off the top of my head.

Our first full week at Well House Manor - and what a week it was! The hotel opened for guests last week, and this week for our public courses.

With our hotel getting busier every month, and with advertising in place to fill rooms at weekends and holidays when our training courses are not in full swing, it seems a good time to update our terms and conditions.

1059Three sets of twins
I've heard it said that a hotel sets up a bedroom as a single if there isn't room for a double bed in the room, and as a double if there isn't room for twin beds. But our doubles aren't like that - we provide mostly double room since people, even on their own, usually LIKE a double bed. But we can ...

963George Hotel and Well House Manor, Melksham
The George Hotel, Melksham, stood on the corner or Lowborne and Bath Road - prime real estate in the town centre; alas, it was demolished around 60 years ago to make way for a modern (then) parade of shops which now are showing their age and considered to something of an eyesore in many of our Vistas. ...

582DWIM and AWWO
"Do what I mean". One of the new buzzwords for Perl 6. I first heard the new term "DWIM" mentioned some three or four years ago and it's a noble target. And I thought of it again last night as I was looking through hotel reviews and considering how we'll react to customer comments - indeed how we ...

594Twice is a co-incidence and three times is a pattern
Open Source training from Well House Consultants started from just three customer requests for a Perl course. I was using Perl for various web site and internal works, and training under contract - so I suppose I was a natural one to ask. By I hadn't given a clue to people that I could / would write ...

When I use a swimming pool, I'm always very conscious of the safety equipment and lifeguards, and also of the other pool users and what they're doing.

Under English planning law, a "Bed and Breakfast" and a "Guest House" are two totally different classifications - you can run a B&B from the place at which you live with no special permissions even if it's in a residential area, but a Guest House or Hotel is described as a business and the property ...
