“Charming hotel in Bath”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

My wife and adult daughter stayed in Oldfields House for three nights while holidaying in England's southwest. Our daughter had a single room and we had a double. We were very comfortable and appreciated having the tea making system in our rooms. Breakfast was excellent. The bedrooms are up two or three flights of stairs as the hotel resides in a large Victorian house. The staff were uniformly cheerful and helpful and one even carried one of our suitcases up two flights for us. Parking on the property is limited but street parking is available nearby. The location is excellent: a ten-minute walk down a steep hill to the centre of old Bath, the Avon river, the theatres and numerous restaurants and pubs. A taxi ride back from a performance late one night was not expensive. If we are ever back in Bath we will definitely be looking for a booking with Oldfields.

Room Tip: Book early so you can get a room on the first floor as this requires going up and down only two flig...

We stayed at Oldfields for only one night and it was great! Arriving at Bath by rail, it is about a 10 minute walk uphill to get to the house, do-able with light luggage. On arrival, Karen took the time to show us on a map some of the major sights and let us store our luggage in the room, although it wasn't quite ready yet. We were on the ground floor in the back (room #7) which was quite nice: a non-functioning fireplace, king bed, huge ceilings, coffee/tea/kettle/biscuits and air-conditioning (I guess since the room is next to the road, the windows don't open). The bathroom was small, but not any smaller than other European bathrooms I've seen.

Breakfast the next morning was nice. As a vegetarian, there was a lovely "English breakfast" with vegetarian sausage, egg, tomatoes, and beans. Toast, French press coffee, fruit, cereals, were also provided. My partner had the salmon and scrambled eggs which he said he liked.

When we checked out that morning, we were able to leave our bags with the front desk while we visited the town some more which was convenient. While I shopped in town, my boyfriend was able to go back to Oldfields and wait/work in their sitting room. He said to mention that they were very kind in offering him coffee and biscuits while he worked using their wifi. :)

Highly recommended, I'd come back here again!

Just checking out now after a VERY pleasant stay. Very clean premises, professional and friendly staff - delicious breakfast. I would definitely stay here again. Conveniently close to the bus station and the centre of Bath. Thank you Oldfields House !

Only stayed overnight but the team were very accommodating allowing us to park the car early whilst we explored Bath, we had arrived early having driven back from Cornwall. The team were so nice and directed us to the best places to visit and eat. Breakfast was of a high standard, had to wait a bit but it was worth waiting as it was very fresh and well cooked...and to be fair we were warned the night before and there was a nice disclaimer on the menu. Rooms tidy and clean, I don't mind a double bed, so swapping the king to a double would have given us some more space. This is picky, well done Oldfields for being so hospitable and making our short stay a pleasure, be sure to drop in on our next visit to Bath

I can't say one bad thing about our experience staying here during our 5 night stay.

Overall the rooms were clean and bright. Breakfast in the morning is excellent, served hot and offers you some good choices. Staff and the owners are professional, friendly and make you feel extra welcome.

I would gladly stay here again and recommend it.

Room Tip: One caution if you are very picky about noise is room 16 (lower level, under the dining area). The...

In taking my father to Bath for the first time, I wanted a place accessible to everything and yet away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Old fields was perfect! Great service, amenities, rooms were large and free wifi! I would come back for sure
