I hadn't been to Bath before so really wanted somewhere central so I could cram as much in as possible. This place is 3 minutes walk to The Crescent and 10 minutes walk to the city centre so really convenient. Peter was very helpful giving us a few tips on the best places to go to and the best ways...

We initially chose this hotel because of its vegetarian credentials and its location. We booked by phone and were given a choice of booking in times. Peter supplied us with a useful map and some good recommendations for places to eat. Lovely room, beautiful house , very friendly hospitable staff and fantastic breakfasts. Highly recommended.

We stayed one night at Marlborough House in December when we visited Bath for the Christmas markets and shopping. We had previously stayed at Marlborough House around 7 years ago and it was great to see that the B & B is still vegetarian, still under the same ownership and all the rooms have been tastefully refurbished. Breakfast was tasty... More

Visited again this year to see Bath Xmas markets. Peter's standards continue to be the highest in this small Hotel, set just 800 metres from Bath shops. Rooms are spacious and well equipped with modern appliances but still retain the elegance of the period. Never thought I would enjoy a no meat breakfast till I stayed here.

We cannot fault Marlborough House. We stayed for three nights and were very sad to leave. Peter, the owner is a native of Bath and he is extremely helpful in guiding you around the central city with his use of a map. He can tell you almost exactly how long it will take you to walk from A to B.... More

Peter, the owner of the Marlbourough House made our experience in Bath very delightful. We were already booked with another B&B in town that was not working out. Peter accommodated us with a room, juggled his schedule to help us get settled in at the last moment. One morning we had to leave earlier than breakfast hours and he prepared... More

Thank you so much for such a favourable review. I was so pleased to be able to accommdate you at last minute, when your accommodation you booked on-line elsewhere did not meet with your expectations. We always encourage guests to pick up the phone and book direct with us rather than "on-line" that way you know what room you will... More

I can't really fault Marlborough House......seriously good B&B. Any fault would be nitpicking.......even the included brekky was awesome (best mushroom omelette I've ever had). We stayed three nights and managed to see all the sights. Our car was given a free parking permit (street) for our stay which was a bonus. Great staff, superb room, comfy bed, aircon, free wifi,...

We have spent one night in the Bamboo room at Marlborough House this year. I was amazed how perfect and with how much care the house had been decorated. Stylish and very cosy. The room and ensuite bathroom were spacious and clean and I just loved the Oriental decoration. It was a pleasant surprise to find organic toiletries in the... More

What a wonderful place to stay. Beautiful rooms, a quiet sleep and an excellent breakfast the next morning to round up the stay. The proprietor Peter and his two breakfast angels can't do enough for their guests. So welcoming, friendly, accommodating and helpful - and lovely to talk with too. Peter even reserved us one of the scarce parking spaces... More

Peter was absolutely overflowing with helpful information. Where to eat (including a brochure with discounts, be sure to get one and the ID card from him), things to see, places to walk. He managed to fit the four of us (two adult daughters) into one very large room on the second floor, which kept the cost down. Breakfast was an... More
