Stayed here 1 night whilst touring UK. Only reason for 2* is the 15 mins walk to city centre and Roman Baths etc. The place is very rundown, dated and needs a good clean. Unlike other reviews, we did meet the owner who was quite friendly. Not the most comfortable bed we have slept in but the sheets were crisp... More

A convenient location in Bath but rather grubby with very unprofessional owners. We arrived to find that you had to ring a number to be told a code to get in the door then there was a scrappy piece of paper with our name and room number on it in the foyer. The room was tiny and not very clean... More

I booked this via the internet and it looked ok. Foolishly I did not notice that it did not have any star or other ratings-- we were just pleased to book what was supposed to be the last room so near the centre of the city. Oh dear !! the first inkling of something not right was the label posted... More

I booked this as we couldnt seem to find anything reasonably priced for one night and stupidly didn't look at the reviews on trip advisor. We arrived at 6.00 pm on Friday 2 may and were in a hurry to meet friends before going to the rugby. We were shown to the dirtiest room I've ever seen. Dusty. Cobwebs. Dirty... More

Everything in this B & B was dirty, dated and appallingly amateurish. The portrait of Queen Victoria and other delights kept reminding you you were in Britain and therefore not to expect too much in terms of hospitality and service. But that was beyond the joke.This place had not been properly cleaned for years and probably furnished from a charity... More

We arrived at 6:30pm, the reception was already closed, I couldn't believe it, I never stayed in a place where there is no one to receive you. Everything is self-service, we paid 55 pound for the room, and they charged 2 pound for paying by debt card. We called the service number but no one answered the phone! The breakfast... More

We saw the reviews but decided to take a chance and see for ourselves and my god it was terrible! Filthy dirty rooms, months of dust and cobwebs, glasses that stuck to the table at breakfast and bathroom filthy! Please, don't go there, you will be appalled! If we could have found anywhere else to stay last night we would... More

My husband and I were travelling through Europe and stayed in alot of b and b's. The Dorset Villa was the absolute worse and after booking on line then actually seeing it in person immediately cancelled and looked elsewhere. It was filthy, run down and no one there to greet us.
