From our first phone call to inquire about availability, we knew we would greatly enjoy Peter and his first class establishment. Peter absolutely goes out of his way to make sure you are welcome and have some familiarity with Bath. The rooms are very tasteful and comfortable; we stayed in two different rooms and liked the one on the second... More

Peter, the proprietor, was simply wonderful. From our first emails, the driver recommendation from Heathrow (Shelly was a delight), and the expert local advice for spots to visits and things to do, Peter was right on target. His breakfasts were exceptionally good, with everything done just right. Our family room (1 double and a single for our daughter) was well... More

We loved our stay at Marlborough House. We had a room with a very large bed and a single bed (for my husband and I and our 13 year old son). All beds were very comfortable. We used Bath as our place to recover from jet lag and Marlborough House was a perfect choice. The curtains made the room nice... More

We stayed here for four nights in June 2016. During the reservation process, Peter the owner was always helpful and provided good advice about things to do in Bath and where to eat. We followed his advice and were not disappointed. . When we arrived around early afternoon, no one was there to greet us - had to be let... More

Frank and I have a B&B in Australia so we know the amount of effort it takes to manage a really good B&B and Marlborough House is really well run. Peter Moore is an excellent host, the organic, vegetarian breakfasts are fabulous and the rooms are spacious and elegant with everything you could need. We had a great stay and... More

The most striking aspect of this establishment is care of the customer which is both genuine and generous. Peter, from our first contact, answered all queries in a most friendly and helpful way. We stayed for a total of three days with our retriever dog. Car parking and all the extras in the room were taken care of within the... More

Bath was the first stop on our UK adventure and the Marlborough House turned out to be the perfect place to stay.

I stayed with Peter at Marlborough House about 9 years ago when i worked in Bath.
