We booked this as a treat to celebrate our Silver Wedding Anniversary. We chose it particularly based on location, which as many reviewers have noted is literally 5/10 minutes from the centre of Bath on foot. Also because it has it's own parking for guests, which was very important for us as we had looked at other places that offered... More

We booked this hotel for 2 nights recently. We found the staff to be very helpful and friendly. Our room had a great view over the back gardens and sports ground beyond. The room itself was spacious and very clean - the room is known as "The Abbey". Breakfast was good and filling - setting you up for a day... More

This B & B was, in all aspects, a wonderful place to stay whilst in Bah. The parking area was A1. On our arrival at the Ayrlington we were greeted by a very pleasant and friendly receptionist who showed us to our room. Although we were on the top floor, the steps did not deter us in any way.

Stayed here in July. Very convenient for city centre, literally a 5 minute walk. All hotel staff were very polite and courteous. Have noted reviews which mention road noise at the front of the hotel, and having stayed at the back of the hotel facing the gardens I can say that there is no such problem on this side of... More

Check in to the hotel was pleasant, we arrived early but the Hotel was quite accommodating to our leaving the car in the car park. Our room was at the top of the house facing the road, the room was large and contained all that was needed for our stay. The trouble with the room was that in facing the... More

We stayed here for one night in July and overall was a pretty good experience. The room was adequately sized, and comfortable enough. The room does not have air conditioning, so the windows were required to be open. Since they don't have screens on the windows, some flies came in. They may want to consider putting screens on the windows... More

We stayed in a spacious room, appreciating having 2 comfortable chairs to sit in and watch evening TV in comfort, looking out to wonderful views to Bath centre. The bed was so comfortable that I had the 2 best nights' sleep that I have had for a year (I am not a good sleeper) and when we told the receptionist... More

Firstly, I am so glad that I am not the person who has tell Boris Johnson that it is not safe to drink the water in London hotels - good luck with that... Filthy room?

Recently stayed here to explore the delights of Bath & surrounding area. The Receptionist was friendly & welcoming & check in was effortless. The room we stayed in (SIena) is located on 1st floor of property, is spacious & tastefully decorated,only slight downside was the noise from the road outside but after a couple of nights it was not noticeable....
