After deciding that we'd "wing it" in the UK and just seeing "where the road took us" which proved to be somewhat stressful at times, thankfully we found 55a North Rd. Natalie replied to our enquiry within moments and confirmed our arrival for later that day. Guy greeted us with a welcoming smile, showed us to the fantastic upstairs apartment... More

I arrived earlier than anticipated which didn't appear to be a problem for Natalie who welcomed me with tea and cake. Chocolate was also a welcome find in the fridge! The accommodation was very clean and tidy and although I didn't ask for any extras, I feel sure that nothing would have been a problem. Natalie also advised that a... More

I had the pleasure of staying at 55aNorth Road this week. If you don't want to be in the centre of Bath (which I didn't) then I doubt you could find a better place to stay. I stayed in the double studio and had my own well equipped kitchen, a table to eat at and a sofa to sit on.... More

I was a 'regular' at 55a for almost 8 months, whilst on a secondment for work. It was the perfect alternative to a hotel, with very reasonable rates for Monday to Friday stays. 55a is ideally located and benefits from the cosiness of a B&B and the privacy of your own apartment. I am so happy that I stumbled across... More

From the moment we arrived to the moment we left we enjoyed every minute of our stay at 55a. On arrival, Natalie greeted us and made us feel so welcome - throughout our whole stay nothing was too much trouble for Natalie, she even gave us a lift into Bath which was much appreciated. Once shown to our room Natalie... More

We couldn't have been made more welcome by our hosts. The apartment is great, immaculately clean and elegant. The bar of chocolate in the fridge was a lovely treat, as were the cup of tea and homemade mince pies on arrival. We will certainly recommend this to friends and hope to visit again soon.

We stayed here for a girly shopping weekend - the owners could not do enough for us including meeting us at the train station with our bags so we didn't have to carry them all day. The room was bright and beautiful big comfortable closet beds and tea and homemade mince pies on arrival - cannot recommend enough

If you would like the warmest welcome, the most comfortable beds, and the nicest hosts then this is it! A must have on your list of stops where nothing is too much trouble. Perhaps I should mark it down so it's not full up when I next want it...Oh well, the secret's out!

We selected this accommodtion to break up a long journey from the north to the south, we could not have chosen better. Natalie and Guy are exceptional at what they do, very welcoming, friendly, informative without being intrusive or pushy. Yes the property is just on the outskirts of Bath but this was not an issue, Guy even gave us... More

My friend and I spent 2 nights at 55a and will definitely be going back. Natalie & Guy are the best hosts ever they get exactly the right mix of being there when needed but respecting your privacy. The room was spotless, light, airy and very comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and a real treat to have it served in your... More
