“Great comfortable stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

We stayed at Devonshire house for two nights in May and would certainly recommend it. Upon arrival we were welcomed by Louise who showed us to a very comfortable room with large bathroom. Both Louise and her husband Chris were welcoming and helpful. We felt really good staying there. They prepared a lovely continental breakfast including warm croissant. They also gave us all kind of helpful hints making our stay in Bath even more meaningful.
It’s a bit of a walk into town but the hosts provided a map showing the best option for the walk and also told us about taxi services. We walked each time but if you are a bit out of shape, you may want to take a taxi on the way up. There is a lovely pub next to B&B with good beer.
We really enjoyed it and would recommend this B&B.

Stayed for 2 nights, we had a welcoming email the day before we arrived which was nice, when we arrived we were shown into a very comfortable room with an ensuite loo and separate shower. Comfy bed ensured a good nights sleep. Woke to a lovely continental breakfast including warm croissants. It's a bit of a walk into Bath but we were given a map showing best options for the walk. We bought our Thermae Spa vouchers from the hotel and had a chat about best times to visit. V knowledgeable about area and places to visit. Had a bottle of wine in our room as a thank you you for booking the vouchers which was a nice touch. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend this B&B.

My mother, brother and I stayed here on a quick trip through Bath. We stayed on the second floor in a large room with one double and one single bed. The toilet/shower room was newly renovated and well appointed with a large step-in shower and bright, clean, fixtures. Our room overlooked the street but despite my initial concern, the windows were very well insulated and none of us were disturbed by road (or pub) noise the entire night. Breakfast was the hearty, full flavoured English variety and started our day off on the right foot. We opted to walk to the city centre and found it an easy trip down. The trip up the hill was a bit more work but it kept us warm in the chill night air. It was quite easy to take a cab as well, (mum's request) the next day. I would stay here again to be sure!

Having read previous reviews on here I was not surprised that we had a great stay, I booked this hotel for my husbands birthday and the location was ideal. I think we made it to the centre of Bath in 15 minutes - it is a steep descent but on pavements - but so is most of Bath! we got a taxi back both days for as little as £6 so there is nothing to whinge about regarding the location.

The room was ideal - lovely and cosy with very comfy bed and the bathroom was very large by any hotel standards. The breakfast was also plentiful with everything you could wish for and more continnental style.

All in all a great stay and would book again when we return to the beautiful Bath

We stayed at the Devonshire after a day in Bath...it was very cozy and welcoming, but I was surprised by how big the room was and the updated bathroom (for our family of 4). Chris was a very welcoming host and helped us find a wonderful place for dinner....plus he served a delicious breakfast. The B&B is very convenient to downtown Bath. Overall a wonderful experience.

My friends and I really enjoyed our weekend stay at the Devonshire House.
The rooms were clean and quite spacious, the en-suite bathrooms were clean & well equipped.
The owners were friendly & welcoming and also very helpful when it came to advising on local attractions.
The B&B is located a short drive from the city centre & is easy to get to, plus there's no problem with on-street parking.
Overall, we liked everything about the B&B, including the continental breakfast which was tasty & filling.
I'd recommend Devonshire House B&B to anyone visiting Bath and I'm hoping to be able to visit again.
