We stayed here three nights in August and had a wonderful time. Peter made the check-in process unique, providing much useful information about staying in Bath. The rooms were spacious and comfortable and the breakfasts excellent. Easy walking distance to downtown Bath,to the Crescent, as well as to good restaurants.Thanks Peter for sharing your home with us.

We spent three nights at the Marlborough House in Bath, and it was great. The host, Peter, was very helpful and accommodating. Our room was quite comfortable and well equipped, and the sherry supplied each evening was a great way to end the day. The breakfasts were quite good. We liked the location, just a little out of the center... More

We had a great 5 night stay at Marlborough House. Peter was very helpful with information before our stay and welcomed us with lots of advice when we arrived. The room was very comfortable for our family of three and the breakfast was a great treat every morning. They were very helpful with extras like laundry and restaurant suggestions.

A belated review as my daughter and I stayed at Marlborough House in June, enjoying a short break in the lovely city of Bath. An excellent guesthouse - ideally located within easy walking distance of the city centre (the route in via the Royal Crescent was the best) and Peter was a first class host, charming, attentive and helpful, particularly...

We were very excited to visit Bath! Cab driver took us the longer way to our B&B and asked more than he quoted us .... bad start! Our room was small with angled wall and faced the street (corner lot) a little busy and noisy! Peter was very nice and took time to give us great information about eats and... More

Dear Dan, Thank you so much for your review. And delighted to learn you concluded it was worth you staying here. Need to point out for others reading, that keeping our new double glazed windows shut and using our super silent air-conditioning will eliminate the noise from traffic. As experienced by previous reviewers. More

I stayed here with my mum, boyfriend and puppy in July and it had a great time. Peter was extremely helpful, giving tips on where to go, how to arrive to the B&B and get around Bath. The room was spacious, clean and comfy. And the breakfast offered several different options. Would definitely recommend and stay here again when I... More

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.

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
