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

We went to Bath for the Xmas market. We were driving so needed parking. The Devonshire offered us everything we wanted. The owners were very friendly and accommodating and the breakfasts were brilliant. The location is close enough to town to enjoy the views of Bath as you walk in. A wonderful B & B. We would stay again when... More

I only needed to stay in Bath for one night and this was a perfect little guest house. We were welcomed with a friendly smile and allowed to settle into our room. The room was cosey with a decent bed, roomey shower and most importantly it was quiet. Breakfast was great, plenty of selection of cereal and teas etc. The... More

Found this B&B by luck and what a find, went for the weekend with my sister. Louise the host rang us before we arrived to see what time we would check in to inform us that our key may be in the pub next door as we said we may be there earlier than the check in time. When we... More

Would recommend a stay. Host is very helpful and happy to field any questions about what to do in bath. Good breakfast. Rooms are nicely done out and the beds are very comfortable for a good nights sleep. Only a short walk down the hill into the centre via the Devonshire Arms pub next door.

Spent a weekend in Bath with my family in October 2014. Bath is an expensive place for accommodation, especially with a family. So, we got a very good deal to stay in a family room at this small, but very comfortable and friendly, B&B. A very pleasant 15minute stroll downhill from town, although a longer trek uphill on the way... More

So glad you enjoyed your stay with us, buses are good value too, £4.00 each for an all day ticket, with the bus stop just down the road. Thanks for your feedback about the possible noise in the summer, to overcome this, we do have ceiling fans in all the rooms and portable fans which we put in the rooms... More

Had a really lovely stay at this B&B. Chris was really welcoming and personable and we really enjoyed staying here. The room was really clean, comfortable and decorated really well. We had access to everything we needed (including free parking) and we had a yummy breakfast to greet us each morning.
