“The best B&B we stayed at in England!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2012

We had a great time in Bath and at Catherine and Jamie's house. What wonderful people with an incredible house they shared with us. They were so welcoming and friendly. The rooms and relaxation room were very comfortable, and they filled us in on all the things we wanted to know.

The town is a bit of a way down the hill but was a nice walk on the days we were in for a stroll, and Catherine or Jamie were more than happy to take us into town (or come and pick us back up) on the days we were feeling lazy.

Scrumptious food for breakfast (made fresh upon order) and fun company too. Musk, the dog, was super sweet so we got our dog fix too. If we ever come back to England we will for sure go to Bath and the Bodhi House again. Thanks for a great time at the spa too. It is one of our top fun days.

Room Tip: All the rooms were great. We had two of them and the others looked good too. Our room had a wonderfu...

Myself, my husband and our 2 year old and 3 month old daughters stayed here for one night's B&B in December 2011. The family room was spacious and well thought out with nice finishing touches such as a jug of water in the room and lavender on the pillows and the view of Bath is spectacular at night. The beds were so comfy and the ensuite bathroom was modern with a great walk in shower. Our room was spotless, the cleanest hotel I have ever stayed in, so clean it was easy to miss the the shower screen! Bump! The breakfast was absolutely delicious with a great selection to choose from. There are lots of added extras at this hotel such as DVDs to watch, games, books, a guest fridge to use. But what really makes Bodhisattva House stand out from the rest is it's owners. A very friendly, welcoming family who went out of their way to make our visit to Bath and in their home as pleasant as it could be, offering us lifts into Bath (you can walk it in 15 mins but it was wintery and far too cold for our two young children), helping us with luggage/pushchairs, telling us some great places to visit in Bath, their hospitality went above and beyond what you would expect. We hope to stay there again in what must be the best B&B we have ever stayed in.

Bodhi House represented to me, excellence in Bed & Breakfast accommodation in England. If every B & B used Bodhi House as the benchmark, everybody would have bookings every day of the week. Bodhi House was excellent value for money, extremely clean and appropriately decorated. Jamie & Catherine are just simply beautiful people. What can I say other than, book and stay and you will not regret the experience.

Myself and 10 friends rented out this house in April and everything was fantastic. The bedrooms are neutrally decorated with modern bathrooms and walk in showers. very clean and homey. The living room is like having a home away from home, very cosy and there's a big farm house style kitchen/dining room which has everything you could need in it.

Catherine was absolutely lovely and went out of her way to make sure we had everything we needed. Also, the garden has a lovely big table and bbq area, where we all had breakfast on the Sunday morning.

Location wise, it's about a half hour walk to the centre or 10 mins by cab which costs about £8. Buses are on offer too, but with 11 of us it was more cost effective to get cabs.

Thanks for the lovely stay! :)

I've been meaning to write this for ages...

My boyfriend and I stayed at Bodhi House last October (2011) for a few days and had the most lovely time. We still talk about it often (just yesterday in fact, which is what prompted me to finally getting around to writing this)

Catherine and Jaime you were wonderful hosts and your B&B is a credit to you. The leisurely, delicious breakfasts are the best I've ever had. And it was a joy to chat to you both.

The bedroom at the back of the house, overlooking the garden, was lovely and peaceful, and the shower was superb!

Personally, I love staying at B&Bs, as they're so much more personal than hotels, and yours is the best I've ever stayed in. It was wonderful value, worth every penny. And we really loved the extra little touches. Ant especially wants me to mention the shortbread biscuits in the bedroom! The heart-shaped butter melted my heart (terrible pun, sorry!). Also the view from the breakfast room was so tranquil. We had a really restful stay.

And thanks also for all the lifts to and from the city centre!

You made our visit to Bath really special, thank you so much.

All the best,

Elaine & Ant
p.s. this accidentally turned into a thank you mail rather than a review, nevertheless we mean every word!
Highly recommend
