“Central Location for Bath, UK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

This place is too expensive for what it offers. They demand a 50% non-refundable deposit up front. It is a vertical place. Too many stairs to climb. Janis and Jerry, who actually run it are very nice and capable but they can't turn a average house into something excellent. The actual owner is kind of arrogant and egotistical.
The location is excellent. Near to everything you want to visit.
They could use a better vacuum. The floors are extremely uneven. Coffee comes in an open jar, not packets, not hygienic.
As I said, Jerry and Janis are fantastic. The Henry is not.

Room Tip: Ask for one at the rear.

I arrived in bath unprepared, and was looking high and low for a hotel, guest house, etc. Walked past the Henry and met Liz the wonderful and accommodating owner. Immediately fell into excellent conversation and knew this was the place for me. So inviting was this hostess I would have stayed in a coal-shed for her company, so imagine my delight when the room was clean, beautifully furnished and with an extremely comfortable bed. The breakfast was delicious, the coffee was strong, and the atmosphere was easy. As a lone traveller to be welcomed to a new city like this was an unimaginable pleasure.

Stayed her for a hen do and we took over most of the B and B, plus the apartment opposite. Beautiful rooms, light and fresh. Yes it does get a bit noisy outside,but you get that in busy towns, but I had my headphones on so didn't hear much. Right in the centre and car parks next to it,car park is public so prices can get high.bonus is, you're in the middle of bath so can get to everything quite easily, alternatively, the train station is a few hundred yards up the rd.havent given 5* as there's a few niggly things such as door on bathroom not shutting properly in rm 1, you have to be perfect for a 5*

I had the luck to be able to rent 8 rooms and an apartment at the Henry. The rooms and apartment were lovely. Dana gave us a very warm welcome and her breakfasts' were delicious. A great place to stay in Bath, very central and close to all the attractions. I can not recommend the Henry enough.

I've stayed in many guest houses in Bath since 2006, The Henry was by far the best and I'm glad I found it. A lovely couple Jana and Gerry run the Guesthouse. I have already booked my next stay here in a couple of months.

The place is lovely, the beds are comfy, breakfast was good and the rooms are delightful. So why wouldn't I come back? Well, there is a cash point over the road on this quiet street, bath is full of drunk students who take cash out from here into the early hours.... They are loud, they are aggressive (swearing and shouting at their friends) and disrupt what would have been a perfect place to stay.

It was raining when I arrived at the Bath train station, and I had no umbrella, but The Henry was so close to the station that barely mattered. It is a clean, comfortable and inexpensive guest house. My room was on the top floor, which I knew about in advance. The room was small but not cramped _ perfect for the solo traveler _ and I had adequate space. The bathroom was across the landing, but it was not shared, so it almost felt en suite. The convenience of The Henry to the bus and train stations, to the Baths, to shopping and to most of the tourist attractions in the city made it the perfect place to stay. And even though it is so close to all the action, it was extremely quiet. I highly recommend this lovely, convenient, immaculate and friendly guest house.
