“Absolutely Lovely Find!”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

We arrived at Tasburgh House at around 10am on the Saturday. Although we knew our room would not be ready, Sue was really helpful and looked after our bags, so we could spend the day in Bath. We did not return till 10pm, and again, this was no problem, and our request for a glass of wine upon our arrival was no problem. The staff could not be more helpful or friendly.

The bed was super comfy and the room spotlessly clean. Lovely Arran Aromatics toiletries. The website almost doesn't do the place jutice.

The breakfast room is most welcoming, with a delicious range of fresh fruits, yoghurts, toast, home-made granola, cheese, ham, pastries.... it was also a wonderful surprise to spot gluten-free toast on the menu.

It's a lovely walk along the canal into Bath (15/20 mins if you don't mind a brisk pace). Ladies - just don't go wearing any silly high heels!

A really lovely, warm place!

Thank you Sue for making our weekend away so nice. We had a great stay at tasburgh house. The house is beautiful with stunning gardens and views. We were three girls celebrating our freind getting married and Sue went out of her way to make the stay special by treating us to a glass of champagne to cleberate and always being super nice. We would recommend the hotel to anyone lookign for excellent service and a kind caring host.

I am so glad you all enjoyed your time in Bath and, of course, that you were pleased to have chosen to stay at Tasburgh House. I must confess that living in such a lovely City with a wealth of interesting and charming places to visit makes me and my staff want to pass on our knowledge of this wonderful environment around us. I hope you all enjoy the reason you came here - a sensational Wedding Day!

A fantastic setting on the hill overlooking Bath and champagne brought to the room on arrival - a great start to our stay. The room was nicely decorated with a very comfortable bed and attractive Victorian features. The bathroom though was rather small with a tiny, cramped sink. The staff are all very professional and helpful. The walk through the gardens and along the tow path by the canal is a must.

Room Tip: Wordsworth room lovely but small bathroom

Thank you for taking the time to write this review. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay but have taken note of your comment regarding the bathroom and the wash hand basin. Unfortunately, due to the restrictions of the house being Victorian and having to create bathrooms to fit into each room there hasn't been much scope to introduce bathrooms without reducing space in the rooms. In this instance I opted to have a bath installed with a shower over which, of course, takes up rather a lot of space. Needless to say we all totally agree that the sink could be larger. If we can entice you back again you will find that one will have been installed.
Thank you again for your valid comments.

My wife and I stayed only for 1 night on 12/3/2013. We were warmly greeted and made to feel most welcome by Sue. We arrived early and asked if we could leave the car whilst we walked into Bath for the afternoon. Sue gave us a map and good directions. It was a bitterly cold day and we arrived back at the hotel around 5PM to be greeted by a charming young lady who showed us to our room. The room was very clean and very well decorated with a good Sony TV.
The bed was extremely comfortable with top quality bed linen.
Breakfast was superb. Top quality produce and a wide choice. I particularly enjoyed the full english breakfast. Sadly all too soon we had to leave but will definitely return later in the year when the weather is warmer.

Absolutely the best B & B experience we've ever had. Everything was perfect the moment we arrived. The proprietress, Sue, went out of her way to make us feel welcomed. Gorgeous room, delicious breakfast, and amazing help with every excursion we desired. We can't wait to return!

We stayed at the Tasburgh House over the weekend. The house is a nice location from Bath city centre, about 20 minutes walk down hill. The house is lovely with lots of character. Our room was on the top floor. The bedroom was a good size with an ensuite shower. Our bed was a comfy double, but for me the mattress was too soft, but that did not ruin my sleep. Our next door neighbours did! There was a group staying, who thought it was fun to come home drunk and then shout the place down. I complained to the manager at around 0230 and she was straight to their door...however she did have to come back second time, before the noise stopped. It is an old house and you will hear your neighbours. The room could do with a new carpet and in the bathroom, they have replaced the tiles, but the old suite stayed. I guess it is character. Breakfast was good, but the cooked English breakfast is expensive. The continental breakfast is included in your price. All in all we would probably return, which is mainty down to the staff who work very hard, very polite and friendly.

I have to thank you for writing this honest review albeit that it has regrettably changed our view on allowing Hen Groups to stay. I have to say that this was the very first occasion in 10 years that such appalling behaviour was experienced by other guests. My staff were so concerned that the peaceful and relaxing location normally experienced was completely overturned by a few of our guests.

I am very glad to see that your stay was otherwise pleasant and sincerely hope that you will return when we will guarantee an undisturbed nights' sleep, even if we cannot guarantee the weather!
