The Penthouse Apartment was very comfortable and quiet with all the necessary amenities. Owners provided excellent directions and followed up with a phone call after out arrival. 2nd bedroom had two twin beds which was perfect for us with our two teenagers. Be aware though that there is no lift - you have to carry your luggage up 3 flights of stairs - not a problem for us but could be for others. Great views from the rooms. Coffee machine was very cool - a bit of a challenge to figure out how to operate and keep filled with water (could have been better instructions) but once we had that down it was great. Best part is the location - we arrived via bus which was a very short walk and left via train which was even shorter. Very close by are the Roman Baths and the Abbey, as well as lots of shops and restaurants - groceries are a hundred yards away. A short walk will take you to the Royal Crescent or Pultney Bridge. We spent two full days - our highlights, other than the Baths and Abbey, were the Bizarre Comedy Walk and the Mad Max Stonehenge/Lacock tour.
