My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights from 7/4/14. After reading some of the reviews I was a bit anxious about staying here. I needn't have worried, the house was fine. It was clean and comfortable. We were made most welcome and the breakfast was great. It takes about 10 mins to walk into Bath and the hill... More

We had a lovely stay in Bath at the Highways house. It's a B&B don't expect a boutique hotel. What you get is a personal service. On arrival we were given a friendly welcome, explaining housekeeping breakfast etc. Lovely touch having port to drink after an evening out although we didn't partake. We had the annexe room at the end... More

My husband and I stayed here for two nights in February 2014. Location is quite good (although you have to be fairly fit to manage the steep incline from Bath to the Guest House) - and about a 15 minute walk into town. Guest House, we weren't as impressed with. In dire need of modernisation! Room extremely small (wasn't able... More

We saw this hotel on line last January, can't believe my husband + I looked forward to it for almost a year. What an enormous disappointment . The building itself looks not only old ( we knew it was ) it's almost dilapidated. The greeting on arrival was friendly. So far so good. We were told breakfast was from 8.30... More

stayed for four nights on a business trip. Very warm and clean room, informative and friendly host. Convenient for city centre and on a main road with good buses. Comprehensive and well cooked breakfast. Would stay there again without hesitation and recommend it. Only two points I would make, although it didn't seriously impinge - would have appreciated a table... More

Highways house was a very comfortable Bed & Breakfast, very clean traditional British B & B. Very clean with friendly staff. Good breakfast with plenty of choice. The location is good for exploring Bath city centre and local Historical features. Off road parking is very good as public car parks in Bath are very expensive. A 10 minute walk down... More

I arrived late one September night when it was raining hard and I was exhausted from a 2.5 hours drive. Luckily, I was given a large room with a really BIG comfy bed which I slept in like a baby! Breakfast was excellent and everyone was friendly and helpful. Thanks for making my trip easy and enjoyable!!

To be honest this was the only B&B with availability I could find at short notice when I urgently needed to visit my daughter in Bath. The room (no 7) was a double and a decent size in an annexe at the back of the house. It felt damp and the only heating was a space heater which clicked on... More

We got given the family room which was an annexe at the back of the hotel (there was only 2 of us!) the room had a huge king size bed (or queen?) and a single bed. It had everything you might need - a fan if its hot, a spare bed folded away, a wardrobe, chest of drawers, tv, kettle,... More
