“Good B&B”
Reviewed August 7, 2009

Brock's was the cheapest accommodation of our 2 week trip and it held its own. The location is stellar. Breakfast was quite good (typical!) and we appreciated the pancake option. Noise from the street in room 2 was noticeable, normal city noise. A fuse blew one morning right at the end of our showers which compromised the electric pump; had it blown earlier it could have been a soapy mess, but no harm no foul and of course they fixed it immediately. The bed itself, and especially the pillows, would be the only things I would really criticize as deserving an upgrade. Otherwise, it is as advertised, run by friendly people, generally comfortable, and convenient.

Never saw Sammy despite getting friendly emails from her prior to our trip. Richard was pleasant but very business-like. Room was small; noisy in back yard at night. Good breakfast. Good location.

We had a very welcoming reception and were shown to a large, well-furnished, quite comfortable room. Quiet, too. There was a folder with comprehensive, well-written tips for sightseeing and dining out, which proved helpful. Breakfast very well done: best omelette we ate during the whole time touring Devon and Somerset... and we stayed in considerably more expensive establishment along the way. As to the price: great value for money!

Housed in a period building right in the middle of the architectural beauties of the city, the guest house is pleasant and confortable. It is run by a young couple who do their best to be helpful. Breakfast is standard but the breakfast room is superb and so you start the day in style! The rooms and the house are clean. I will go back there for the location.

My husband and I stayed for 2 nights at Brocks Guest House's Honeymoon Suite, and it was a perfect start to our honeymoon :) It's a short taxi ride from the train station, but if you're travelling light and don't mind the slight uphill terrain and cobbled pavements, you could probably walk! (We took a taxi as we had lots of luggage!) Richard greeted us at the door and gallantly helped to carry my luggage up the stairs. The rooms were beautiful... the bed had white lacy sheets, and the owners had even retained the original fireplace (though it was now purely ornamental -- the room was centrally heated so we were comfortable and toasty when it got cold at night). They had also thoughtfully put together an infopack on where to go and what to eat in Bath. There was also free wi-fi, which is always awesome! We especially enjoyed breakfast in the quaint little sitting room, where the full English breakfast was cooked to order... and while they were preparing our eggs, mushrooms, hash browns, bacon, grilled tomatoes and toast, we could help ourselves to yoghurt, muesli, fruits and juices. Bath by itself is a beautiful place, and staying at Brocks just adds to the charm!
