Bed and Breakfast Marlborough is mostly available in small hotels, inns and pubs with rooms.

The Ivy Inn Hotel has somewhat different origins. The building was originally constructed in 1707 for the Earl of Aylesbury as Marlborough Academy, a school for boys. The hotel’s front door was originally the Masters entrance. The side passage was used by the pupils and their names and initials can still be seen carved into the walls. The 300 year old hotel is a fine example of a grade II listed Georgian building. It offers many architectural and decorative features which reflect its history as well as the modern luxuries that discerning guests expect.

Bed and Breakfast Marlborough should include the Merlin hotel B&B; with its ten rooms. This old established hotel B&B; is located on the broad High Street where you can savour the atmosphere of this bustling market town.

A family run B&B; in a central yet quiet and secluded location yet only minutes walk from the historic High Street with its many shops, pubs and restaurants Orchard Close B&B; offers a warm welcome with good home cooking and a real feeling of a home-from-home. There is ample parking and all bedrooms in the recently built wing are ensuite.

There is plenty to do and see around this historic town and many attractions close by, for example the Savernake Forest, the Kennet and Avon canal, Avebury Stone Circle and the White Horse Vale. Avebury is a World Heritage site, less well known than Stonehenge in the south of the county and is arguably a much more interesting and attractive place to visit. It is unique in that the village of Avebury with its Keiller Museum, Avebury Henge shop, teashops and pubs occupies much of the site.

There are many B&B;’s outside the town and particularly attractive are those close to the Kennet and Avon Canal. Manor Farm B&B; makes an excellent base for exploring the 'The Heart of Wiltshire'. A traditional working family farm of 500 acres there is also a livery yard for horses and their owners to enjoy and is also available to guests.
