Located on a hill just up from the center of Bath, the Abbey Rectory is a handsome beautifully furnished house where on arrival we had a warm welcome and a nice cup of tea in the large living room. Our spacious room, the Camden classic double, overlooked the front garden, nicely decorated with a very comfortable bed and an excellent... More

Booked in the blind this bed and breakfast. The hotels are expensive downtown and this place was on walking distance from the Roman bath. The room and bathroom are luxury, breakfast good and the place is quiet. The staff is very helpful with maps and recommendations for visiting the city. We had only one day...You can easily stay here a... More

We had booked into the Abbey Rectory after a friend had recommended it.We were expecting something good as we had read reviews and heard how wonderful it was but it's fair to say that our expectations were completely exceeded. The hosts were attentive, prompt and very inviting without being intrusive and genuinely made us feel very at home and very... More

We spent a month traveling through the UK, nearly 20 different bed and breakfasts and Abbey Rectory was the best one that we stayed at. Gary and his wife were welcoming but gave us privacy. The room was impeccably clean with good wifi. The bathroom was roomy and well stocked and the bed was comfortable with curtains that blocked the... More

Bath was the end point of my destination after walking the Cotswold Way. The Abbey Rectory, for someone with no car, was a bit out of the center of town, but not so much to make it inconvenient. The upside was that is was quiet and peaceful, out of the noise of the city. I was looking for a couple... More

This is by far the best b&b we have ever stayed in! The attention to detail and the care given by the owners is wonderful. We were made to feel so welcome and the decor is stunning. If we go to Bath again we would definitely be looking to stay here again, I can't recommend enough!!

This was our second visit to Bath and so we had no hesitation in booking a room at the Abbey Rectory. It is a little more expensive than most bed and breakfast places but oh so worth the extra for the luxury! A different room this time but just as comfortable. Superb bed.... superb shower... and a superb location with... More

This was the last b&b that we stayed in during our travels to Scotland and England. Again, we had another winning experience. We had a large room with a comfortable American king size bed. The bathroom was luxurious and I absolutely loved the rain shower when washing my hair. Breakfast offered a variety of options from which to choose. Night... More

A superb B&B close to town - can walk or quick & easy bus ride. Excellent spacious bedrooms and en suites. Very comfortable beds. Rooms in private part of the building with lovely lounge for guests. Culinary delights for breakfast, including eggs benedict. First class hospitality.
