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

We had a 4 night stay here last week and had a lovely time. The room was clean and the bathroom was spacious. Louise greeted us with a warm and friendly welcome and gave us lots of information about things to see and do while we were there. Breakfast was always plentiful and it was always hot, I thought Chris's... 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.

Good location and free parking right outside provided a really nice start to our stay - but indoors was amazing. A big room, beautifully decorated, with lots of thoughtful touches and a big bathroom made our stay so comfortable. The room was very quiet and the bed comfortable. The host was very friendly and helpful. Everything was clean and warm... More

What a great find and good value for money, given Bath is such an expensive place to stay. Greeted warmly by Louise, who took the time to provide us with information etc. The room was spacious. They allowed 4 adult guests in one room. Very clean. The bathroom was spacious. Breakfast was well organised. Plenty of choice! Really can't fault... More

We were in Bath for the Jane austen festival. This was a sweet little b&b on the outskirts of Bath. We were able to check in using the alternate check in system so didn't have to wait to drop off out bags. It was easy enough to catch a bus into town. The owners were hospitable and friendly. The breakfast... More

I totally agree with Tom K - 'Not as good as the reviews stated'. This b & b was adequate but no more. It boasts 4 AA stars but 2 stars would be nearer the mark. Expensive for what it is which is just an average b & b.

Please ignore any of the bad reviews about this b&b. They're a load of pap!! I've stayed there over the past three nights and I have to say what a brilliant b&b. Chris and Louise should be damned proud of what they have achieved here. Completely spotless with great facilities, with the added efforts of going that little further for... More
