“Very welcoming hosts, ideal room for a little getaway.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013 via mobile

We had a lovely stay for the night and breakfast in the morning.
The only bad comment I can make is about the bed, it was way too soft.
Everything else was perfect though. We really felt at home, the room was very clean, and perfect size.

I had a great time at this B&B, Good breakfast, friendly owners, bit of a walk to Bath city centre but othet than that recommend it. There was a handbook which lots of information on the surrounding area, a nice pub next door and the owner gave us advice on what to do in the area.

I love this place! I have stayed here twice now, and the proprietors work hard to make sure your stay is fantastic. The room was lovely and clean. There was excellent free wifi, a nice tv with lots of channels,walking distance to historic Bath, and a free discount card for attractions and shopping. The breakfast is good and plentiful, with something for every diet. The icing on the cake is the welcome sherry provided in the lounge each evening. Just across the road is the Devonshire Arms which does lovely food in a comfy pub atmosphere. This is THE best place to stay in Bath!!

Excellent accommodation, great hosts and reasonable prices. Walk to City Centre was enjoyable although the return could be challenging for some guest (steep hill). Lovely city, weel worth a visit and we will return.

Spent two nights here and the owners were lovely, nothing was too much trouble. However I did find the room decor very dated although it was spotlessly clean. Also if you want a cooked breakfast you have to order it the night before which is a little inconvenient as you can not always be sure what you want the night before.
Bit pricey too, but thats probably the norm for Bath.

Louise F, Owner at Devonshire House, responded to this review, December 4, 2012
Thanks so much for your review, you are right it can be expensive in Bath, so our prices are pretty average for a B&B, but do remember, it is often better for you to come direct to the B&B rather than through an online booking agent, that way commission is avoided on both sides. We do ask for the breakfast order the night before, as we are adamant that each item on the menu is cooked from fresh and not pre cooked or part cooked. If we didn’t have the breakfast order the night before there would be a twenty minute or so delay whilst everything was prepared and cooked, and although guests have more time at the weekends, during the week, most guests need their breakfast on the table at the time they asked for it. Thank you for the feedback, though as we are constantly striving to improve and always tweaking the way we do things. With regards to the bedroom décor, all our rooms have been refurbished over the past five years, but they are on a constant rolling cycle of refurbishment. We do hope to welcome you back to Devonshire House in the future. Best regards. Louise and Chris

A fantastic, friendly and cosy B&B ideally located for a weekend in the beautiful city of Bath. A fifteen minute walk into the centre, ably fuelled by the wonderful full English breakfast. Chris and Lou are wonderful hosts - we will definitely be back!
