“The Managers Are Great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2012

This was our second stay at Ashley Villa Guest House, on arrival we were greated by Ashley, the owner, who showed us to our room after checking in.
The room was nice and comfortable, we were at the rear of the property and overlooked the pool.
The managers, Angela & Jurgan, were great hosts and very knowledgeable, and Jurgan cooked an awsome breakfast, while Angela made sure that the guest's in the dining area were well looked after.
We spent 4 night's at the beginning of October, as it was my other half's 50th. We made full use of the lounge and bar in the evening and met up with another guest, which we all had a great laugh.
Highly recommended.
Once again, many thanks to Angela & Jurgan. We hope to see you again.

My niece and I really enjoyed our 2 night stay here. Owners and managers very accomodating and approachable. Simple, clean, contemporary decor with local artist's work of Bath sites. Room tiny in attic so no view but adequate space with good linens and very clean. Breakfast very well prepared and comfortable atmosphere in dining area with classical music playing quietly. Pub down the street had great food. Easy 10 min. bus ride to downtown or 30 minute walk thru the park. Overall, best B&B during 3 week stay in England. Thanks for your warm hospitality.

Spent one week at Ashley Villa on a business trip from overseas. My room was small but adequate. Rooms were cold on occasion. I felt my towels were not changed very regularly, even though I left them out to be changed, I would find the wet ones hanging up on my return! Of note the wifi, which I was quite reliant on for work purposes, did not work at all in my room for the week. This was reported to management but not resolved. Cooked breakfast was good but far from plentiful! All in all an average stay which could have been made a lot better by resolving just a few small issues.

Thank you for taking the time to send us a review.
Our policy on changing towels for longer stays is to change them every 3 days. If the chambermaids think they will not dry out in the day they will change them. If you want them changed every day we will happily do that and should your towels still be damp in the evening we will of course give you clean towels - just ask.
The temperature in all our rooms can be controlled by guests using the thermostats in the rooms. If there was a problem with this or the heat was insufficient we have portable heaters to loan to guests - again just ask.
We provide a breakfast bar where guests can help them selves to as much as they want followed by a choice of cooked breakfast - cooked to order, guests just need to tell us exactly want they want.
Our Free Wi Fi network has a download speed of 8.1MB/s and we have repeaters to ensure the signal is available in all the rooms. Some times guests do watch videos/ TV online and this can take a lot of bandwidth. If 2 or 3 guest do this at the same time some guests will get a slow response time. Our Telephone company is due to upgrade our line to 20Mb/s soon.

My husband, infant son and mother stayed here in mid-October. We had a bit of trouble finding a B&B for the weekend, though I'm not sure why. We were delighted with Ashley Villa Guest House, and had a lovely 3-night stay. The rooms were decorated with a clean modern style, not the fussy/musty style I find prevalent in many UK B&Bs. Our room was a bit damp - the wall to the outside was actually weeping water, but we did have the heat off, as we like a cold room for sleeping, and I'm sure this contributed to it. We felt welcomed, and breakfast was lovely. The location was a bit of a walk from the city centre, but one could quickly get off the main road, and cut through Royal Victoria Park. Just to the east of the guest house, up Chelsea Road, were a couple of cafes, delis and a bakery, which were quite convenient to buy a snack or sandwiches for the train. I thought it was a bit pricey, but comparable to all other equally rated B&Bs with a similar location in Bath. Mostly very clean, though our shower did have some mold along edges.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review on us. I am glad to see that on the whole you had a positive experience with us. Thank you for the feedback concerning the room being damp - we are aware of this issue and do everything we can to air this room out between guests! However as you pointed out , if the heating is off and the condensation from the shower builds up it can become damp. This room is having a make over this winter, in particular we will be paying attention to the shower. I think our prices are in line with the cheaper end of the market in Bath, we try to remain competitive. We hope to see you and your family again. Best wishes Jette & Ashley

Could not fault Ashley Villas in any way. I was a little apprehensive as the tariff for a hotel less than a mile from Bath City centre was exceptional.

The hotel was a very pleasing from the outside and even better on the inside. The room was tastefully and newly decorated, and well appointed with excellent ensuite facilities. Superb welcome form manager Angela. Adequate free off road parking on Hotel forecourt.

The staff were well informed about Bath City tourist information. My short stay was topped off with a very good English Breakfast.

The proprietors claim to know from their own experience what hotel guests require and they certainly matched their claim in every way fully understanding the needs of travellers.

I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel it the highest terms.

A very pleasing place to stay in all respects. I was most impressed with the manager Angela,
in the morning she had booked a taxi for my party and then in the evening came out to check
that it had arrived. Her husband was also most helpful with directions and carried our bags.
The hotel is well situated with a pleasant walk into the city through a park, much nicer than
fume filled roads.

Room Tip: Away from the front of the property.

My friend and I were looking for a place to stay in Bath and were excited to find Ashley Villa. The room was well appointed, very comfortable and the price was great. Free WiFi and a little bar in the reception area were bonuses.

The Ashley Villa is situated a little ways from the train station, but it's quite easy to get to all of the central Bath attractions. If you're tired or carrying bags, you can catch the bus, which stops close by, but it's also an easy and beautiful walk into town.

This was definitely one of the nicest places we stayed during our two weeks in England.
