Cute little B & B. Very clean, well kept twin room. Bathroom was big, clean with a good shower! Upon arrival we asked about bus times - this was no trouble and even had a timetable of buses brought up to us - along with ones for getting back to the pub in the evening. Breakfast was freshly cooked and... More

Cheap and not overly cheerful would best describe this place. The food is OK but not the best but as the village pub The Wagon and Horses is a dump both dirty and unfriendly and dangerous to get to as you have to walk in the road as the paths are overgrown . Traffic noise is a problem too.

This B and B has very mixed reviews. My experience falls into the lower category. It is on a very busy road and out of a 3 night stay I only slept well once with the aid of ear plugs. The place is 'tired' and could do with some redecorating and some re plumbing. It doesn't take much to reseal... More

If you are looking for luxury, don't stay here but if all you want is a clean bed and a basic room at a reasonable price, then this place is ideal. It is tatty and needs lots doing to it (although the exterior is undergoing repairs) but the views from the rear are pretty and the food/ breakfast quite nice.... More

We stayed one night with some friends while visiting Bath - the outside does look tired and in need of some TLC, but once in the pub it was clean and tidy and the beer was well kept and tasty. The rooms were clean and tidy and functional for the night, not massive rooms but plenty of space for a... More

I booked this pub to celebrate an 80th birthday for my sister, and on arrival at the Price of Wales, realised my mistake in booking their back room to hold the family party. The owner Graham, must have some blood tie to Basil Fawlty, as there was no warm welcome on arrival,and we were made to feel that he really... More

This place has an average score of over 4 from the reviews and I cannot imagine why. The bed linen was clean and the views were great. Those are about the only positive things I can find to say about this place. It is shabby - inside and out. As you walk up the stairs, each tread moves like a... More

attended 1:30 PM Wednesday 22 January 2014 Unusually, I have read the other reviews before writing this one. Normally I just steam ahead. There is such a polarity here I wonder if people are writing about the same place but on further reflection I think I can understand. The young man who served us behind the bar was absolutely brilliant.... More

Glad i only had the one night in this place, the owner needs a lesson in hospitality, didn't get to meet his wife as she was probably chained to the kitchen sink,( probably a very nice person) upon arrival there was no warm welcome, and the owner was not very helpful with any questions we asked. after a long day...

I had such a good time a the Prince of Wales while visiting Bath. It's located a short bus ride from the town center, or you can drive close to town and park just outside and walk in. Parking in Bath is a little tricky but doable if you locate one of the long term parking lots. The Prince of... More
