Wonderful stay in a lovely location (the George Inn across the street is a wonderful building with great food), peaceful and comfortable. Giles and Steph were very kind, and Steph was keen to help us with places to visit in the surrounding... More

From arrival The Plaine guesthouse is a warm and friendly place. The house really is lovely and the location could have been used in a Jayne Austin story. Stephanie the owner is a lovely lady and really cannot do enough for you. The bed was comfy and contrary to reviews below, the room was spotlessly clean. There is a lovely... More

The other reviewers seem to be blinded by friendliness and quaintness. Yes, Stephanie and Giles are simple pleasant people but their B and B is,... More

Myself and two friends stayed here over Valentines weekend and had the most incredibly relaxing and enjoyable stay. It was our first time in Bath and we were very fortunate to have stumbled upon such a delightful B&B. The house itself is charming and full of charcter but what really made our stay such an enjoyable one was our hosts.... More

This is a beautifully presented guesthouse bursting with personality and life. The room and bathroom were very comfortable with generous sized breakfasts in the morning. Stephanie and Giles were a joy to meet and made us feel very welcome and relaxed with lots of laughter too! This place is good for the soul, you will come away feeling happier.

We arrived to a wonderful warm welcome, our room was lovely and most importantly was spotless, the room was situated at the front of the house the road was fairly busy but we had no issue with noise. You needed to give your breakfast request in the night... More

A wonderful family Guesthouse. We had a relaxing weekend break. Breakfast was beautifully cooked. Thank you for a relaxing and peaceful week end. Our room was spacious and clean. The bed was very comfortable and we had a very good nights sleep.
