Spent the long Easter weekend at this lovely, friendly B&B - 15 minute walk into Bath centre. (Downhill all the way, but there is a bus right outside). The hosts were, friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable. Beds comfy, rooms clean and the breakfast plentiful, fresh and good quality. Would stay again as we felt the time we actually spent in Bath...

We stayed four nights in the family room. It was perfect: spacious room, very clean, fair price, excellent breakfast, friendly and helpful owners. A brilliant place to stay in a very beautiful city. Close to city and bus stop.

Very nice B&B with a room for families fitting 2 adults and 2 children easily. The hosts were very friendly and gave good advice about Bath and the area. Although situated at a main road, we slept very well thanks to the soundproof windows!

We booked a three night-stay at Devonshire House for Easter. We have two girls aged six and nine, and all four of us were booked into one large bedroom. Although the web-page states that check-ins are between 5 and 7, we were welcomed to check in when we arrived, several hours earlier. The very friendly Louise greeted us by the... More

PLEASE DO NOT RESEARCH "TRIP-ADVISOR" BACK FURTHER THAN 18 MONTHS - Those reviews are "OUT OF DATE" and bear no resemblance to the present time. Arrived at 5.01p.m. and was met by Louise, a very bright & bubbly hostess, who spent 15 minutes welcoming me to Bath, by explaining EVERYTHING - how to order my breakfast requirements - where to...

We had wonderful a stay at Devonshire house for a quick getaway. Chris & Louise were brilliant hosts who were hugely helpful & made our trip to Bath even more enjoyable; they provided us with great local information on things to do, when & where to go & even a wee discount card. The location was great & the service... More

Short & sweet review. Owners Chris & Louise are welcoming and unbelievably helpful. Well appointed rooms are spacious and spotlessly clean. Towels and toiletries in en suite. Tea & coffee facilities in room. Breakfast is cooked to order and is first class. Nice surprise finding a box of chocolates and card for my birthday. Have stayed previously, would definitely stay...

This is a great little B&B - the rooms are clean and comfortable, breakfasts are excellent, and the staff very friendly and welcoming. I would definitely go again when returning to Bath and would recommend Devonshire House to others

After arriving at the guest house for a short break my wife and I were pleased to have a nice welcome from Chris who told us all that we needed to know. The room we stayed in was upstairs number 3 and it was very clean, airy and modern with everything that we would need. Although the b and b... More

The house looks a bit iffy when you first see it but don't be put off by the outside appearance - it's lovely inside. We had room 5 on the ground floor - I was concerned about noise as it's on a main road but the window is double glazed with an extra sliding panel so very quiet. Bed normal... More

Thanks for taking the time to review your stay, and I am glad you enjoyed it. Do bear in mind for next time, that there is a great all day bus ticket which costs around £4.00 per adult, which gets you in and out, and all around Bath for the whole day - great if it is raining, and you... More
