“Mrs. Guy was rude”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2006

Mrs. Guy's was our fist stay upon arriving in England. We didn't find her particularly welcoming. We were hungry when we arrived and asked her for a recommendation for a place to have a quick bite. She clearly seemed to be bothered that we asked and told us to head into town and "we'd stumble across something." She seemed ill tempered and was actually rude to our son at breakfast when he served himself what she thought was too much fruit. The room we had was on the top floor of the house with an ensuite bath and was adequate. We would not recommend this B and B.

Stayed June 2005

5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2006

We stayed at 14 Raby Place in early February and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Muriel, the owner, was welcoming and the decor was wonderful - very clean, bright and comfortable. There was also a selection of original artwork adorning the walls. We had a front-facing room with a glorious view of Bath. Our friends had a room towards the back which was equally lovely but without the view. Breakfast was organic and delicious, cooked to perfection. Only a short walk to Bath's central attractions, Raby Place is the ideal place to stay and we will be back. A hidden gem.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2006

Our room was roomy and comfortable. The floor was a bit dirty (I'm not sure it had been vacuumed). The owner was on vacation and a friend was running the B&B when we were there. She was helpful but not especially knowledgeable about Bath and the surroundings. The breakfast was good (standard English breakfast). Location is convenient near central Bath with an easy walk to town.

14 Raby Place is only 5 minutes or so walk from the centre of Bath and is a very comfortable place to stay in this very busy town. Our room was delightful with a charming en suite bathroom and Muriel made us very welcome. Organic breakfast with gorgeous freshly cooked eggs was much appreciated as was parking permit and loan of Bath street map together with stimulating conversation and great art on every wall.
I doubt if you will be disappointed if you stay here.

Fourteen Raby Place in Bath is a gem. With original artwork and beautiful furniture, this place has a classy, upmarket feel for only 55 GBPs per night. I stayed in Room 4 (twin) with a beautiful view of central Bath. I enjoyed the large, sparkling bathroom complete with a towel warmer, 240/110 outlets, and Evelyn and Crabtree washes/shampoo. The room had a large closet, a small television, two comfortable chairs, and nice selection of books and local magazines.

For breakfast, I enjoyed a large selection of organic cereals, fresh fruit salad, and yogurt along with free-range eggs and bacon.

Central Bath is within easy walking distance.

One warning - the innkeeper is very politically minded. She (Murial) warmed up to me when she found out I voted for Kerry, but I'd avoid this place if I were on the right, politically speaking. Murial has strong opinions (about the war, Bush, etc.) that might make some uncomfortable.
