We spent two nights at Villa Magdala over the Easter break. It calls itself a B&B but it's really an hotel.
When booking, the attraction had been the proximity to the centre of Bath (very close to Pulteney Bridge) and private parking. The staff were, without exception, really lovey, friendly, helpful and efficient. We booked a larger room for £10 per night extra and it was spacious with a large bed, small table and a couple of chairs plus a dressing table. The ensuite bath/shower room was small but perfectly adequate. Complimentary tea and coffee in the room. The breakfast menu was extensive and the full English was huge (I requested a half portion on the second day). Everything was fresh and of excellent quality.
The hotel hasn't been open for a year yet and everywhere is clean and new. The decor is bold but tasteful with large-patterned wallpaper in the bedrooms.
We really loved the place and will definitely return if we go back to Bath. It's also a 5-10 minute walk from the Holburne Museum (free entry) which is really worth a visit, not just for the interesting permanent collection or temporary exhibitions but to see the building and the new extension which is ultra-modern and which houses a great little cafe.
