“Very well run bed and breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2012

Although I live in Bath, I recently stayed in the Edgar Townhouse, while waiting to move into my new place.

I was very impressed by the overall level of service. The location for visitors to Bath is about as good as it gets, and this is a classic Georgian townhouse. My room was extremely comfortable, and the public areas of the hotel are very well maintained.

The breakfast room is bright and airy. The cooked breakfast is cooked to order, and is very fresh.

All the staff I met during my stay were extremely helpful and polite.

There is also very good wi-fi throughout the house.

I will certainly recommend this hotel to visitors to Bath.

Stayed here for 2 nights. Took taxi from train station but easy walk if I knew better. Easy to get around. Quiet and comfortable neighborhood. Rooms good but thin walls and loud doors. High ceilings. Breakfast included and staff very friendly.

Stayed one night and enjoyed my stay. The room was small, but offered 2 twin beds, free breakfast, and was within walking distance to everything. The shower had plenty of hot water, but it was very small. The lounge had a guest computer with free wi-fi, and the breakfast was tasty and filling (made to order Full English or Vegetarian option + fruit and cereal). Rating hotels in the U.K. is kind of tricky, in the U.S. I wouldn't even consider giving this hotel 4 stars, but believe me when I tell you that this is a very good hotel for the price paid. It wasn't posh or immaculate, but it didn't smell old and damp (like a lot of places like this do) and it gave us a nice bed in a nice location for the night.Our room faced the street and we had no trouble with street noise. I would stay here again.

The building is classic Bath- elegant stone. And it's a very short walk to major attractions.

Breakfast is generous, and the whole place runs very smoothly. Best of all though was how flexible the staff were - letting us make a call after check out, helping us out when we left something behind.

This hotel was in an excellent location, clean, bright and cheerful breakfast room, good breakfast and wonderful coffee! Great team of staff.

Only gripe would be the tiny bathroom and the central heating gets turned off automatically at some point in the evening/night. My boyfriend and I woke up around 3am absolutely freezing. We found two extra blankets in the cupboard and put these on the bed but it didn't help. Very unpleasant sleepless night, then woke up boiling when the heating had been turned back on at some point in the morning!

For this reason only, we will not return.

This is a good value guest house in a great location, within short walking distance of the major attractions. I cannot praise the staff enough, who went out of their way to be helpful. The breakfast was good with a lot of choice. The property is clean and comfortable and the room pleasant. The only slight downside was a hard bed, but that may suit others. A recommendation is the Mayors free walking tour which runs every day starting at the Punp Room and takes about 2 hours.

My wife and I stayed for one night at the Edgar in Bath, before a trip to Bristol for an exhibition the following morning. The Townhouse is located only a short walk from the town centre, near to Poultney weir. Parking was catered for in all the surrounding 'A' zones with a supplied voucher, but spaces are sparse. We managed to find one in a side road nearby.

The hotel is traditional, the double room we had on the first floor was a little small, but this is a Victorian building so to be expected.

Furniture was basic, (hinges pulling out of the chipboard constructed wardrobe), and decor dated, but the room warm and a very comfortable bed. The shower was powerful and hot and the area kept well cleaned.

The best was still to come the following morning. Breakfast was superb, plentiful and superbly cooked. We asked for some fried bread, which was not on the menu, and it was the best we've ever tasted!

Coffee & tea was help yourself, which I liked, and a great selection of cereals etc. Rupert, the owner, (we presume) was polite, but obviously busy, and we didn't see any other staff apart from the lady who cooked the breakfast.

Overall, good value for money for basic accomodation, but great food and location.

Room Tip: Our room was on the first floor, only a few steps. Nice view from the window of playing field s and...
