I can understand this is NOT a hotel, granted, its a B&B but I arrived about 6pm and was instructed to collect my room key at the adjoining pub. Being on a Monday the pub did not serve any food on a Monday so I was forced to get back in the car and head down into Bath centre for... More

We spent two nights at Devonshire House for our wedding anniversary and had a lovely stay. The hosts are welcoming, friendly and very helpful. Our room was clean and had everything we needed. The breakfast was delicious. Even the walk down to the City Centre is lovely, with great views of Bath. We would definitely stay at Devonshire House again!

Louise and Chris were very hospitable and helpful, providing a lot of assistance, and information about Bath. Although Devonshire House is several kilometres from the centre of Bath but this proved a blessing! The scenic walk down to the city provided fantastic views of Bath and a fair bit of greenery. The B&B's proximity to the Devonshire Arms pub (it's... More

This was our third visit to Devonshire House and, we hope, not our last. It has a warm, welcoming atmosphere as soon as you arrive from Louise who, with her husband Chris, provide great hospitality. They are experienced hosts from the area who are full of smiles and good local advice and knowledge - but sensitive to each of their... More

My boyfriend and I stayed for my 30th birthday for a two day weekend. The room was lovely, the breakfast was wonderful and the hosts couldn't do enough for us, including suggestions on what to see, etc. They were also very sweet and put a card and a box of chocolates in our room for my birthday. We would definitely... More

Comfortable room, great breakfast, great location, the hosts had lots of local advice which made our stay in Bath all the better! The BEST panoramic view of Bath just a short stroll from Devonshire House. We will definitely stay here when returning to Bath.

We stayed for one night in May 2014 but were very pleased with the establishment. Louise, the owner, was delightful, very helpful and made a special effort to point us towards walks with amazing landscapes and recomend where to eat out (we ate at the pub next door and had one of our best dinners in England). Breakfast was very... More

Me and my boyfriend stayed here in October 2013 for a weekend in Bath. The welcome we received from Louise was very warm and friendly and she was very helpful, giving us lots of information and advice on Bath and what it has to offer. The room was very cosy and we were very comfortable there and the continental breakfasts... More

Lovely little guest house in a really convenient location. Louise and Chris are absolutely fabulous hosts and really go out of their way to make sure you have everything you need. Lovely room, comfy bed and a great breakfast to top it off. Definitely recommended.

We would like to thank Chris and Louise very much for the fantastic accommodation and breakfast. We had a good time and have fond memories of our stay in Bath. Chris went the extra mile and gave us a lift to the bus station just in time for us to catch the coach! With best wishes from Saxony Juergen and... More
