“Perfection”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2013

It's not possible for us to add to the marvellous reviews of Pitfour House except to say that Martin and Frances are superb, interesting hosts and their home is delightful. This was our second stay and we hope to visit many times more. Thank you both.

Pitfour House is a Small Hotel running under the Wolsey Lodge umbrella. We have visited quite a few of these now and Pitfour ranks close to the best. The house is lovely, plenty of room with elegant furniture, great art, wonderful bedrooms and an extensive garden in which to relax. One of the best features of Wolsey lodges are the meals where usually the hosts dine with the guests. Pitfour House meals were just great. Lovely cooking, particular attention to detail and Martin and Francis were really interesting hosts. We could find no fault with this lovely House and Hosts and we will definately visit again as we have yet to finish our exploration of Bath.

Our family of three adults and five children stayed with Martin and Frances for a weekend in July as we were attending our sister's wedding in Queen Charlton. The house is beautiful and the rooms were elegant and comfortable. The sheets on my bed were so cool and soft and every detail had been thought of. Martin and Frances are wonderful hosts, we really couldn't have been looked after any better. They brought us coffee in the garden in the morning, wine in the evening and let our children bring their family's treasured toys out to play with. The breakfasts were simply superb and were cooked to order to each person's liking. I can't recommend Pitfour House highly enough - what a charming place and a charming couple. Thank you!

Room Tip: I had the double room at the front of the house and it was perfect - possibly slightly cooler in the...

The house of Martin and Francis is like a museum, the whole interieur is so wonderfull and pretty. Very quiet countryside and just a few minutes away from Bath. First night we went out for dinner in a restaurant by Frances' advice, wich was excellent. Second night, we were invited for dinner with our hosts. All followers, this is an absolut must, when you decide, to stay with them. Martin and Francis, thank you so much, it was a superb stay and a first class dinner, you served.

We stayed here as we were attending a friend's party nearby. We had a hugely warm welcome from Frances and Martin, tea and cake in the garden when we arrived and a delicious breakfast in the morning. The house is just beautiful and our room was gorgeous with a king size bed - the most comfortable we have ever slept in! We would definitely stay again.

Everything about the place was excellent from the rooms to the superb food prepared by Frances. I have no hesitation in recommending this establishment to anyone visiting the Bath area. Frances and Martin made our party of four feel very much at home.

Room Tip: Only two double rooms available, so one doesn't really have a choice.

We could not have asked for more. Frances and Martin made our visit to their lovely home simply the best we have experienced in many years. Delicious food, great company and warm, comfortable beds. Nothing was too much trouble and our enjoyment of our visit was their priority.
