“Lovely B&B with friendly owners”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2014

Great location firstly - just off the Main Street in Box. Parking is a little tough and restricted but adequate.

Fran and mike are very welcoming and go out of their way to make sure you have a good stay.

The rooms are immaculate, comfy bed, great bathrooms (modern), good breakfast.

Stayed on a Saturday night. Lorne house is a beautiful building. Mike and Fran just want to please. We had the room on the top floor, large room, king sized bed, great wet room. We had everything we could want. Very clean. Great breakfast. Good value.

Excellent stay - amazing service, welcome, accommodating. Owners went out of their way to make our stay comfortable with extra beds etc. Clean and tidy. Breakfast very good- fresh, lots of options and catered for vegetarian

Just one issue- this was our first experience of B&B in England so standards are sky high from here onwards!

great location a few miles drive to Bath town centre. Parking no issue.

highly recommend and would love to visit again

I stayed at Lorne House for just one night on business, but if I am ever back in the vicinity I will certainly choose to stay here again. I travel a lot and can say this is as good as any B&B I have experienced. The room, furnishings, bed and linen, lighting, bathroom all excellent and tasteful in a contemporary style. The owners have clearly invested heavily and wisely to present a faultless offer. Great breakfast including home-made marmalade and lemon curd. Friendly but not intrusive greeting and service. An exemplar of what can be achieved. Thank you!

I stayed at Lorne House with a group of friends and it was fantastic. We had such a lovely time. The rooms are great; Immaculate, great bathroom, comfy beds, great decor, loads of info..so much more than your run of the mill B&B. The breakfast was delicious, very good choices and perfect eggs! The staff could not have been more helpful and oh so friendly. Yep, this place is FAB. Treat yourself!!

Arrived early evening to a wonderful welcome - three adults staying for one night using the Awdry room. Fresh, clean and inviting we slept well after an evening out in Bath. A delicious breakfast next morning accompanied by a history lesson on the property from the hosts. Highly recommended.
