As a birthday treat my Wife took me to Bath. Arriving at Villa Magdala we selected our parking spot a little early of the 2pm check in time; "Just checking in?" a gentleman asked as I got out of the car. It turned out this was John the owner who whisked away our luggage, offered us tea or coffee and cake! What a welcome. Soon seated in the bright breakfast room we were given all manner of details about Bath, where to eat, how to see the sights etc. The excitement was building - what would our room be like? Wow!!! A superb modern room with all the amenities you could imagine, most of all a lovely big comfortable bed. Room 6, overlooking the park. Location could not be better, just a short walk into town and all the wonderful sights of Bath. After all the rain in the UK, I was now on an open top bus in the sunshine on my birthday. In the evening we dined at Jamie Oliver's, came back to that superb bed and then had a fantastic choice of breakfast, even Buck’s Fizz if we wanted. John is a "Nigel Haveresk" character who ensures your food is perfect and your needs are well catered for as he enquires how you enjoyed the previous evening or what you have planned for the day. The staff are so polite and even Billy the dog knows his place. One night was not enough, we just wanted to stay on. The £12 parking charge is well worth it as you can leave your car until midday without incurring the charges in the car parks of Bath
