I don't usually write reviews, usually because there's not much to write about. However I thought that following a nice stay in this lovely hotel it would be worth it. Very polite friendly staff. Quiet, clean, spacious room. Excellent location on a quiet street, but minutes from the middle of town. I wouldn't bother looking at any other hotels/B&B's next... More

I have just spent three nights in what is without doubt, the best B&B I have ever stayed at. Comfortable, attractive room, delightful staff for whom nothing is too much trouble and breakfasts to die for! The whole place is immaculate with very attractive & interesting decor. I cannot recommend Villa Magdala highly enough - it totally lived up to... More

We has a really lovely weekend here for our 20th wedding anniversary. Great service, food and location. Paid top whack at end August for a 'Best' room. However, I do think there is variation within rooms in this class. It was a lovely room - beautifully furnished, quality fittings and spotlessly clean, but it didn't quite have the wow factor...

My husband and I had a great 1 night stay at this beautiful B&B in Bath. We rang to see if they would take a Friday one night booking instead of the usual two and we are really pleased that they agreed. We arrived mid-morning, parked our car on the extremely convenient car park and went in just to let... More

We recently stayed 2 nights, celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary. Whilst the price of the accommodation was far from cheap (we opted for one of the "Best" rooms), it was definitely money well spent. The bedroom was exceptionally comfortable and well presented, as was the rest of the guest house (WiFi was a little temperamental, though hardly a show stopper).... More

Sp pleased you enjoyed your anniversary celebrations. The internet can be a little dodgy but that tends to be over the whole of the city - we were told by one provider that it is due to the Bath stone that most buildings are constructed from.........................or it could be that BT seems to be doing endless works on cabling!

Our stay at Villa Magdala was exceptional. The Villa itself, the staff everything was amazing. My husband and I visited a couple of days after our wedding as a 'mini moon' and we couldn't have made a better choice of B&B. The location is peaceful and picturesque (as a lot of Bath is) and a short walk to the town... More

We booked a 'best' room directly with VM,for a 1 night stay for our anniversary The location was fab - short safe stroll into Bath, parking on site, ad a lovely position opposite a park The room (17) was huge and private through clever design We had a lovely gesture left for us as it was a special occasion which...

So pleased you had a good stay - we are very happy to recommend restaurants and bars and Sotto Sotto is a particular favourite with all our guests! Clayton's Kitchen at The Porter is also fabulous so you must try that next time you come to Bath! Thanks so much for taking the time to post a review! More

Nice upperclass house refurbished as hotel boutique B&B, well breakfast is a subject on its own, excellent reception and service. However we got a room, which bathroom is among the tiniest I ever experienced in my life, not even in London or Paris have I seen so small, for a full price accomodation. Apparently the "sin" is to book the... More

Oh dear. It is certainly no sin to book through a third party booking agency but whilst they may offer the best price that is not always the best value. The details we are able to give through their web-sites is restricted so most guests do check out the facilities on our own web-site. You booked one of the smallest... More

What a find! Villa Magdala is such a gorgeous place to stay for a mini break in Bath. It's well-situated, beautifully decorated and scrupulously clean. The staff are so welcoming, friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Breakfast is a real treat too. Lots of personal touches: I loved the complimentary Buck's Fizz, homemade marmalade and yummy pancakes! I've already... More

Wow! Such a lovely review - thank you! Tyhe housekeepers were especially pleased with your comments as they work extremely hard to keep the rooms spotless - and it's great to be appreciated. Thank you so much! More

Excellent position just a few minutes stroll to the centre of Bath. The staff were wonderful, professional without being fussy. Breakfast was in a lovely period dining room with a great selection. The reason I have given the hotel a rating of only three was the room. We paid for one of the best rooms but it was situated in... More

I'm so sorry you did not like your room. The building has a mansard roof so whilst you are up on the second floor, the ceiling are still high. Many of our guests prefer to be on this floor as it is very quiet as no other guests are above you or walking by as Room 12 shares its own... More
