Our stay was absolutely perfect, from the kind helpful and informative lady at check in to the delicious breakfast on departure. We stayed for my boyfriends birthday and it was made so special. Every staff member we came across were lovely, the room was cute spacious and immaculately clean - we even had our own little gardens! Felt like we... More

Very nice and neat B&B. They also offered a great breakfast and had a gorgeous back garden. Easy walking distance into Bath and the various spots within the city. We only stayed for one night, but had a great experience. I also noted a free car park in the front of the hotel, which some may find useful.

The beds are comfortable and we had a great view of the center of Bath from our window. The back garden area is quite lovely, too. The breakfast was tasty. One person in our party became ill during our stay and the staff were very attentive and helpful. One minor drawback was the road noise, since it does sit on... More

We stayed for one night. The hotel is in a very convenient location. The room was very spacious. Breakfast excellent. Only thing that let it down was the contamination which came out in the water when we had a shower. It was like very small brown polystyrene balls. It was very scary when this happened. Apparently a new boiler had... More

I'd booked the hotel for 5 nights- and our arrival night was my wife's birthday. By prior arrangement via e-mail with the hotel, our room had a bouquet of lovely flowers and and special libations. Great way to start a stay. The rooms vary- we had the Chinese room on the ground floor facing the road. Note- ventilation is via... More

We stayed here for the weekend for a Bath wedding. The location was fantastic and easy walking distance to all the Bath attractions. The hotel was comfortable with great views of the Abbey at night. The car park is small so parking could be an issue, but we managed. Friendly service, good breakfast and a good night sleep- what more... More

We have just come home after a nights stay at this wonderful hotel. We were made to feel very welcome from the moment we arrived, there was only 1 parking space left and the gentleman help me to reverse into it. Moved a flower pot so I didn't hit the car door on it. We were early and our room... More

If your after a very quiet, well located impeccably styled boutique hotel and don't mind paying a premium, this is a great choice. Very welcoming, very comfortable and perfect for exploring Bath. Decent breakfast in the price too, which is clearly at the upper end. Enjoyable stay.

Great location for easy access to the city centre, decent room (Orchid) & nice breakfast. The staff were pleasant and it was generally clean. Parking outside was handy & Zen gave excellent customer service. It feels quite traditional overall and I would stay again.
