The Austen Guesthouse was unfortunately fully booked at the time of our arrival - but the owner did provide us with great recommendations and was actively involved in finding us a (marvelous) other place to stay in bath. Many thanks for the very friendly reception and the great help!

Despite not being well, Marian was extremely welcoming and even upgraded us to the family room. The room itself is gorgeous, with a great ensuite including a huge power shower. Marian didn't...

A lovely guest house in a good location for exploring Bath. What a welcome change to be offered a great quality breakfast with healthy options and no fried meat of unknown origins! Fresh decor with lovely bathrooms and a cracking shower.

Marian was a wonderful host, with lots of tips for getting the most out of my trip to Bath. I stayed 3 nights at the Austen Guest House in a double room with private bath. The room was comfortable and restful, the breakfasts were delectable, with a wide range of fruits, meats, cheeses, and other gourmet goodies, many produced locally.... More

*Nicely decorated room. Newly renovated en-suite shower. Very clean! *Owners are really friendly, very helpful and flexible. *Breakfast was delicious. *Located a short walk down hill from the city centre and bus/rail station. The walk back is up hill but still enjoyable and there is always the option of going by bus. *Free wireless Internet access.

The guest house lies on the top of one hill, but at the bottom of another. It's only a 15 minutes walk... More
