We were recommended this b&b by the George Inn across the road and we thought it was fantastic. When we arrived we were greeted by Giles who showed us to our gorgeous bedroom, with beautiful furniture and a four poster bed. We went across to the George for a beautiful meal. We were given a key to the front door,... More

Two US girls traveling one night got lost and found this gem of a place. Thanks to a recommendation down the road we were able to drop in unannounced and rent a room for the evening. This was off the beaten path for us. We picked the front ground room because it was a twin. We were worried the traffic... More

We stayed here overnight as we had an appointment in Bath in the morning. Very nice family, lovely breakfast cooked for us early as requested and a very easy commute into Bath in the morning - 10 minutes. The pub across the road was an additional bonus with a red thai curry with monk fish on the menu as well... More

This is a very old building. It is situated at the top of a hill by the crossroads. Despite the secondary glazing it was noisy. The bedroom we had was a strange shape with a small en-suite. The four poster was a small double. The breakfast was very good. The best connection to wifi was from the pub across the... More

My husband and I visited our son who has recently relocated to Bath. We couldn't find anything suitable in Bath itself at a reasonable price, but managed to find The Plaine through Tripadvisor. We were delighted with everything. The guesthouse was comfortable and welcoming with a delicious freshly cooked breakfast. The village was a revelation! We watched England v Slovenia... More

My friend and I had a great mini break using this lovely and homely guesthouse as a base. I would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to explore Bath and the surrounding area. The breakfast was delicious and Giles, our host, went out of his way to please; even returning a left item in the post to save us doubling... More

Booked a 3 night stay at the Paine B&B as our son was getting married at Wick Farm ( perfect wedding venue). The bedroom was comfortable and although we had a third bed in there for your grandson, there was still enough room. Pre ordered our breakfast selection the evening before, so it was ready when we went to the... More

After a lot of searching for accommodation in the Bath area, we came across The Plaine. I am glad we stayed here, it was a great find! Perfect for our visit to Longleat & Bath city centre. We had room 3 on the ground floor which was tastefully decorated. The bed was very comfortable, which perhaps eliminated the traffic noise... More

I booked a room here as a belated day & night away for my husbands bithday. We asked could we arrive early, even if just to drop our bags off, before we headed in to Bath for the afternoon/early evening. It was no problem at all. We headed back to the village in the evening, stopped at The George for... More
