Up a steep hill, away from the city center lies Old Fields - a serene and comfortable bed & breakfast in Bath. My husband, daugther and I were greeted and checked in while seated in a common room which contains soft sofas, magazines and newspapers, tea facilities and a computer for guest use. During our July stay, the UK was experiencing record high temperatures. We were delighted to find that our first floor room #7 had a silent, remote-controlled air conditioning unit installed high upon the wall. The staff advised that not all of Oldfields' rooms can be retrofitted with AC, so check with the proprietors if this is important to you. I am sensitive to traffic noise, yet this room was almost absent of outside sounds even though it is on the street side. Recessed lighting provided excellent illumination for reading. The room had high ceilings, beautiful crown moulding and drapery. All were fresh and spotless. The room also contained tea making facilities (with real china), along with shortbreads and bottled water. The room was nicely set with a comfortable King bed and twin rollaway. The bath is modern - very tiny, hardly any space for toiletries - but includes the luscious Moulton Brown bath products. Full English breakfast is included - it was good but not noteworthy. I strongly recommend Oldfields.
