Once again Oldfield’s lives up to my expectation. I love the city of Bath and I am so happy to have found a wonderful B&B to enjoy during our visits. The staff is absolutely wonderful. They were always there to answer questions, give recommendations on restaurants and day trips out and around Bath. Both Stella and Sean are professional, caring and go the extra mile to make sure your stay at Oldfield’s is the best it could possibly be.
They have brochures and books in a beautiful sitting room. The sitting room has a fireplace and a computer. The computer is available for use and is free. This was very convenient. The breakfast room is very classy but warm and friendly. They offer a very good selection for breakfast. You have your choice of many cereals, yogurt, fruit bowl, many other fruits, orange juice, as well as other fresh fruit juices and champagne. They bring you coffee or tea and toast if desired and than you can order a warm meal from their menu. They are very flexible and do everything they can to meet your needs. Sean does the cooking and he is a great chef.
As for the room, like most European B&B's, I wish the room was bigger but the room was nicely decorated and very well maintained. We were in room number 12 it was very clean with a flat screen TV. In the office they have DVD's you can borrow. The window had two sets of glass so you did not have any noise coming in. But the window was also very easy to open. The bathroom we had in our room only had a shower, no tub, but there was great water pressure and the shower and bathroom were very clean. They had Molten and Brown products in the bathroom for guests to use. They also put out bottles of water on the bed stands free for guests.
Oldfield’s does a very good job of taking care of guests needs and letting one vacation in a nice and comfortable atmosphere. I would definitely recommend this B&B.
If you are in Bath with a car I would definitely recommend a day trip to Stratford (birthplace of Shakespeare.) It is a cute city with theatre (Royal Shakespeare Company), shopping, restaurants and friendly locals. For a smoke-free dinning enjoyment we recommend, Strada (Italian) and “Pizza Express,” they are a chain but have great food, the pizza dough balls and garlic butter are fabulous, as well as the Chocolate Glory dessert!!
