Stayed there for one night on 5th July. I was given a warm welcome, as usual, my room was luxurious, the towels large and soft, and the breakfast excellent. It is an ideal location for visiting Bath. Stay there while you can as the property is now on the market!

Stayed here recently, to break a journey - collecting offspring from Bath Uni. We stayed in a well decorated and spacious room, which contained a large double and a single pull out bed - both were very comfortable. Lovely bathroom - the bath did fill fairly slowly (hot water) in the am, but not alarmingly so - and we weren't... More

Thank you for the review and we're delighted that you were so happy. Just a quick response re. the sausages. we find that most people don't want large bangers for breakfast and that the chipolatas are more than adequate . They are very tasty and are made in our local butcher's shop of 90% meat . It's a shame that... More

The breakfast was very good with great tasting bacon and tomatoes. Nice size room with a wet room/bathroom. Only issue we found is the quilts on the bed were very heavy for... More

We visited Bath for the weekend and most hotels were either booked or overpriced so we opted for this lovely bed & breakfast about 15 minutes from central Bath. Our stay was just perfect.. a clean, cosy room. A modern bathroom with good facilities. Breakfast was made to order and also perfect for us. I would stay again and recommend.

I booked 3 rooms for a party of ten through booking.com for a hen weekend. We had 3 wonderful, comfortable rooms and a very pleasant stay here. The place is very homely - making you feel as if you are staying in someone's house. The rooms were stylish, comfortable and each had a very personal touch: books, magazines, paintings. Our... More

Only an overnight stay for my husband and I but the room provided every comfort and everything you could need. A comfy bed, soft towels and something quite rare in hotels these days, very good lighting! A lovely history and a delicious breakfast topped off our stay.

The room was nice but very small. A good breakfast menu with lots of choice. There is nothing wrong with this B&B but the price. At £80 for a small room value for money is poor.And they had the cheek to charge £2.50 to use a credit card
