Everything about Marlborough was lovely. Peter, our host, was so helpful in recommending activities and restaurants in Bath. Our room was a little tight for 4, with 2 roll away beds, but this was NOT a problem or disappointment. The B&B is very, very clean. The staff, Sarah and Lily, were so kind to us (especially to the kids) ,... More

We chose this B&B as they were able to offer a vegan breakfast, and it was an excellent one, offering soya milk/yoghurt/marg and a full cooked breakfast. The staff were all very friendly and accommodating - the owner Peter gave us a friendly welcome and lots of info about the best places to visit and eat in Bath (thanks for... More

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
