“great place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2007

The hotel was lovely - we had a four poster room with an en-suite which was fantastic. Lovely white company shower gels and shampoos in the bathroom! The staff were friendly and the manager, Peter, very approachable and helpful. The inclusive breakfast was amazing - cereals, fruits etc etc and a choice of cooked breakfasts as well. Would definately recommend this guest house.

We absolutely loved this place. A short taxi ride from Bath (there was no way my girlfirend was going to walk uphill for more than 2 minutes), beautifully decorated, lovely artwork on the walls, classy rooms. Very helpful manager, he's not grumpy or miserable at all as others have suggested, perhaps a tad reserved that's all. Comfy beds, great breakfast (freshly knocked up and not on the back burner for hours on end), the attic room we had was fabulous - mind you don't crack your head open though!
Absolutely top class. Congratulations on such a great place.

  • Liked — the place, very beautiful indeed
  • Disliked — the showers can be a tad dangerous

Dorian House is a lovely B&B, about a 10-15 minute walk into the heart of town. Room was well appointed and the king size bed was great.

We stayed in Dorian House for our wedding anniversary weekend. It's a beautiful building, with nice communal areas, and good-looking rooms. But: it's a 10-minute walk from the city centre along a busy road, not very scenic. Proximity to the road means that the rooms out to the back are relatively noisy. No alternative room was on offer although we had arrived early. All the lights in the room were controlled via a central switch, so they were all either on or off. Breakfast is during a one-hour slot in the morning, and the staff were clearly struggling to cope with the amount of people turning up at the same time - as well as running out of basics like brown toast at 9.30 am. For £100 a night I would have expected more attention to detail and guests.
