We have just returned from a three night stay at Marlborough House. The staff were really nice and very helpful with suggestions of where to go and places to eat. We had a top floor room but the bathroom was a little on the small side. Would definitely return and try and opt for a room on a lower floor.... More

Lovely rooms, wonderful breakfasts, close to everything...what more could you want?! We spent two perfect nights here and had a wonderful time exploring Bath. Peter is a native of the town and knows all the ins and outs to help you maximize your visit. The restaurants he recommended were excellent. You would also have many many fine choices based on...

The proprietor treated us and provided us with a map and reccomendatios as to what to see and where to dine. The staff at the B&B were very friendly and helpful. The only problem... More

My sister and I had flown in to spend time in Bath and the surrounding areas. On our arrival we were given a very warm greeting by the proprietor who showed us our rooms. He even gave us a map of Bath that he had outlined with the best walks and tourist attractions. The staff were friendly and very helpful... More

We felt that the rooms were slightly overpriced and there was a problem with the offered WiFi that couldn't easily be accessed from the bedroom. The alternative was to go downstairs to the dining area, but that was far from ideal, late in the evening. vegetarian breakfast was very good and the service fast and friendly. Location good for exploring... More

Just come back from a lovely stay at Marlborough House. The location was perfect with just a short stroll into town to see the wonderful sites of Bath. Free parking at Marlborough House was also a massive plus. As for Peter and his lovely staff Lilly and Sarah they were all so welcoming and full of top tips and knowledge... More

Staying for the first time in Bath for years. Location was important as we wanted to be close to our daughter’s halls, as she is at Bath Spa Uni, and close to the town centre. Peter, Peter, Peter, and your lovely ladies - what can we say - bang on the money, all of it - thank you so much!... More

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
