“Excellent service. Recommended place to stay!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

We arrived here the day before new years eve and were picked up from the train station by Catherine. A warm welcome from Jamie too and there after we were made to feel very welcome. A very clean and warm feeling to this guest house and the personal touches made by Catherine and Jamie are noticeable, this is what makes Bodhi House stand out from the rest. The showers are amazing and the amenities are of very good quality too.

Breakfast was delicious. All fresh produce tastefully prepared for each guest. We could not fault this place at all. The view from our room was beautiful and the city centre was only down the road. Jamie and Catherine really do go out of their way to make you feel welcome and by dropping us off to town was very kind of them.

The added bonus to this trip was the Macdonalad hotel and spa facilities which were complimentary from Bodhi House. We were surprised the amount we were getting for the price we paid. They offer such value at Bodhi House that it does not surprise me why all their reviews have five stars.

Thank you for a lovely weekend we will no doubt be returning soon.

Room Tip: ask for the room facing front of house. Amazing views.

We stayed here in December and had 2 wonderful nights here - Bath is a fantastic city but our stay at Bodhi House was what made the weekend. Very hospitable hosts and extremely welcoming - breakfasts were out of this world freshest fruit and beat cooked poached eggs we have had. It really feels like a home from home and the beds are extremely comfortable. Couldnt ask for a better place to stay........

I highly recommend this B&B, we stayed for 2 nights and had a lovely weekend. Catherine and Jamie were very hospitable, driving us into the city centre multiple times. It is only a short cab ride or 25 minute walk. The house is gorgeous, with very comfortable rooms, nice modern bathrooms & tv. There were lots of choices for breakfast and they were cooked beautifully. We used the free guest passes to the hotel spa and spent most of the day using the pool & sauna which was a great added bonus and makes this B&B great value. Everything was lovely! Would definitely stay there again.

We enjoyed another excellent stay at Bodhi House. As always both Catherine and Jamie looked after us very well .

The bedroom was very comfortable with a superb shower . Virgin Media TV system, Tea and coffee and excellent local shortbread.

The breakfasts were up to their usual high standard with yummy fruit, a wide choice of cereals and a splendid cooked breakfast including local sausages ,eggs, and bacon.

Both Catherine and Jamie have a wealth of local information and even picked us up from the city centre and provided information about a fantastic local farm shop.

We look forward to our next stay.

Mum and I have just spent 2 nights at Bodhi House and can't recommend it highly enough. Our room was lovely and well appointed. Breakfast each morning was superb. Catherine and Jamie are lovely hosts, picking us up from the station when we arrived, and then delivering our luggage to the station the afternoon we left.
It is a lovely walk into town so although they offered to drive us we always chose to walk each way. It's a good 20-25 mins up a steep hill, but mostly quiet and pleasant. The weather was a bit rainy and foggy, but even so the view from our room was fantastic.
A truly lovely place to stay.
