Guest comments

'Twelve years ago my wife and I celebrated our 60th birthdays with a weekend at the Pear Tree with 20 of our close family. It was magical because of the warmth of our welcome, the way we were looked after, and the quality of food and accommodation. This year was our 50th wedding anniversary: we decided to repeat the experience, and took over the whole hotel. We were amazed how Anne Young and her team were able to find the records of which guest had slept in which bedroom so that they could be offered the same room again. The staff were amazingly helpful. The Pear Tree is maintained to a very high standard. The gardens are beautiful. The epitome of a perfect British family-run country hotel. ' - David Leibling - August, 2016
'Every bit as excellent as the current GHG entry implies: warm welcome, efficient staff, delightful rooms (rather than numbered, each is named after a local person: we got a 19th century sprinter who worked for the railways in Swindon; our friends a local vicar, who once lived in the house); well-kept grounds, including a small vineyard; imaginative dinner. And all fairly reasonably priced at £200 for D,B & B per room. ' - Andrew Warren - May, 2016
'Room, service and food were again excellent. ' - Gwyn Morgan - November, 2014
