Stayed here for three nights at the end of January. Communication with Peter (proprietor) was excellent as were his advice on places to eat and visit. The breakfast was extraordinary - great range with plenty of fresh fruit, cereals and cooked options available. Easily accessible to all the sights and the railway station is well within walking distance. Staff were... More

The breakfast choice was brilliant and the host, Peter and his team were so accommodating for all that we could have wished for. Great, clean and well stocked rooms, near... More

Stayed for two nights early January. Had booked months before and had multiple communication with Peter, the proprietor, before arriving, including an email to double check that we were on track with the time we were going to check in. He personally met us when we arrived and delightlfully explained, on the map, the best routes to walk into town... More

Stayed for thr Bath Christmas markets. This B&B was very reasonably priced and Peter the proprietor, Lilly & the young girl serving were all lovely and very welcoming. The B&B was a short 10 min walk to the centre of Bath - a welcome walk after eating so much! Everything was spotlessly clean, and the vegetarian breakfasts were lovely with... More

We stayed for a long weekend to watch the Rugby and take in the beautiful city of bath. Peter was very friendly and welcoming, with lots of tips about where to eat etc as the Christmas market was also on. It was a bit of a surprise to see a vegetarian menu for breakfast, but everything was lovely and I... More

Having first stayed in 2009 Marlborough House was the only place we wanted to stay on our return to Bath. Peter was very welcoming, as were all the staff, and provided an excellent recommendation for dinner as he did previously. The house and room were without fault as was the breakfast. It's within a comfortable 10 minutes walk of all... More

We had a fantastic stay here - Peter could not have been more helpful providing us with a detailed map of Bath and recommendations for eating out. The house itself is wonderfully furnished and our room (no 2) was sumptuous! The bed was so comfortable with very good quality mattresses and linen and providing complimentary sherry in the room was... More

Immediately we felt right at home. It had been a long day of travel and sightseeing around Bath, so by evening we were weary. Luckily Marlborough House was right around the corner from the car park; which gives easy foot access for a walk about Bath. Parking in front of the house is tight, but even with a mid size... More
