The price of hotels in the Trowbridge area are completely over priced regardless where you stay so I chose the Polebarn as a last minute resort as I wasn't prepared to pay the £100+ for the Premier Inn down the road. I believe it has been renovated due to the faces people pulled when I said I was staying here.....

Dear lauraelizabethx, Thank you for taking the time to comment on your stay. I'm so glad you weren't put off by peoples faces! We have been busy renovating since 2010 and during that time have had some local media coverage about our achievements, clearly it takes a while for good news to travel! It's a shame you missed breakfast, maybe...

A warm welcome, clean, comfortable rooms in an incredible building. I can't recommend highly enough. The restaurant is open Monday to Thursday for dinner and we stayed on a Friday so missed out. Plenty of other places to eat nearby though. The breakfast was absolutely first class. Can't wait to return.

We stayed on a one night stay while visiting family (January 2017) Double room - very clean - very quiet - kettle and TV - Friendly owners what's not to like. Breakfast in the morning was freshly home cooked and a good choice - we will stay again and will recommend

Beautiful building, free parking, a good-sized room and an accommodating hostess - all things which were appreciated when, visiting relatives over the Christmas period, I stayed for one night (it was 25th December) at The Polebarn, Trowbridge. A few days before my intended arrival I had received a curtesy call from the hotel advising me that I was a valued...

Dear Michael L, ...and a Merry Christmas to you too! Thank you for your lovely comments. Although I was away for the Christmas period, my mum, Margaret, was happy to come out of retirement and take the helm for a few days. As you have reported, she did a good job - I may hire her again! Warm Regards Natasha

We stayed at the Polebarn for three nights as a base for researching some family history in Trowbridge. It was a great choice. Liam and Natasha were excellent hosts and have done a fantastic job of making this hotel a welcoming and comfortable place to stay. Our room was spacious and well appointed, and breakfasts were generous and delicious. We...

Stayed for 1 night on business. Hotel has its own car park and room for a small number of cars. Good that it is central to town and not far from restaurants and bars I had a room right at the top.

Need to stay near Bath formwork on aore reasonable budget and found this little gem. Lovely Georgian house, kindly converted with warm and friendly staff. Could have done with a fan as it was a warm night, that's my only slight negative.
