We had 2 nights here and the place is amazing. Our bed was huge, giant bathroom and superb breakfasts in the morning. The staff are so friendly and Muttley the resident pooch is adorable. The hotel is a great location for everything you need in Bath.

Our room was absolutely super, fresh with very tasteful decor and light airy with the most comfortable bed ever. Price wise, £500 for 2 nights it's double what we usually pay but... More

From the moment we arrived we were treated with great kindness and consideration. The accommodation was excellent and the bed was the comfiest that we have experienced in a hotel. The staff were friendly and the breakfast was to die for, again the best that we have had in any hotel. Terrific!!

Arriving at the beautiful villa was the start of a lovely weekend in Bath. We were greeted at the door, given coffee and homemade cake. Our hostess couldn't do enough for us. She showed us a map and the main places to visit, she even booked our restaurant as we expressed an interest in a typical Sunday lunch. Our room... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Just a 5 minute level stroll to the centre of Bath with all its attractions, Villa Magdala is a handsome Victorian townhouse, set within its own gardens with an off-street car-park. So close to the heart of the city, yet the hotel is in a quiet road, opposite leafy Henrietta Park, so none of the usual late night city noise to disturb a blissful night's sleep. 20 stylishly refurbished bedrooms offer a 5 star rated boutique B and B experience, with heavenly Hypnos beds, all king or superking size, with feather light goose down duvets and crisp cotton bed linen. Well-equipped bathrooms include fluffy bath sheets, and luxury toiletries. Gourmet breakfasts are served in a light, airy ground floor dining room, overlooking the park, all freshly cooked to order from a range of quality locally-sourced ingredients. Marry all this with a team of friendly, quietly efficient staff, ready to recommend and book all kinds of entertainment for you - a truly charming and characterful place to stay. ... more   less
