Stayed here in July 2014. Room was very clean and comfortable. Staff and breakfast incredible. In a quiet street very close to the city. I'll be going back. Please book direct through the hotel website as you save the £12 breakfast fee. Nice bathroom freebies too.

A five star Guest house that would put many a five star hotel to shame. In all my years of travel throughout the world, I have never experienced such incredible service. Nothing too much trouble and smiles from ALL staff. Breakfast complete with Bucks Fizz is a perfect start to the day. Did not want top leave it. Location to... More

We spent one night at the Villa Magdala - the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, the rooms were lovely, clean and fresh and we had an excellent breakfast. It is incredibly central to the centre of Bath so only a short pleasant walk to go out for dinner and enjoy the sights. It was a real treat to stay... More

Ideal location, very central with most attractions walking distance. Staff were extremely attentive with good knowledge of the area. Rooms were stunning and spotless. The ensuite was stylish and compact. Breakfast was fantastic. Would definitely stay again.

Excellent boutique hotel. Great quiet location in the centre of Bath. Super breakfast.!! Very pleasant staff/ management. HOWEVER, big disappointment was having to pay £12 each EXTRA for breakfast , PLUS having to pay £12 EXTRA for parking, all because we booked through an internet agency. These were included for people that had booked direct with the hotel!!! Also WIFI... More

We loved the Villa Magdala: the warm welcome from staff, the beautifully appointed rooms, the easy walk to Bath attractions and even the stand of umbrellas to borrow all made for a wonderful stay. One possible downside: I will need to check our bill, however, as I see that one reviewer mentions a 12 pound parking charge that is in... More

This is the place to stay for central Bath access, friendly people, lovely rooms and a fantastic breakfast. For us it is unbelievably convenient given where we need to be but it is very good value for a great central location. Try it!

We had two nights in a "best room". Whilst the room was physically large, I don't think it could reasonably be considered to be "best" - as the only aspect of "best" it had was a fairly large floor area. The only window looking towards the park was small (in contrast to the illustrated three window bay) and there were... More

Thank you for your review, firstly let me address your point about our 'Best' rooms, the categorisation of our 'Best' rooms are that they over look the park at the front of the building, they have superking size beds and they have bath's in their bathrooms. The room which you were allocated had all of these things making it a... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Just a 5 minute level stroll to the centre of Bath with all its attractions, Villa Magdala is a handsome Victorian townhouse, set within its own gardens with an off-street car-park. So close to the heart of the city, yet the hotel is in a quiet road, opposite leafy Henrietta Park, so none of the usual late night city noise to disturb a blissful night's sleep. 20 stylishly refurbished bedrooms offer a 5 star rated boutique B and B experience, with heavenly Hypnos beds, all king or superking size, with feather light goose down duvets and crisp cotton bed linen. Well-equipped bathrooms include fluffy bath sheets, and luxury toiletries. Gourmet breakfasts are served in a light, airy ground floor dining room, overlooking the park, all freshly cooked to order from a range of quality locally-sourced ingredients. Marry all this with a team of friendly, quietly efficient staff, ready to recommend and book all kinds of entertainment for you - a truly charming and characterful place to stay. ... more   less
