“Welcoming Guest House”
Reviewed June 4, 2012

We chose to stay at the hotel as a base for seeing Bath, Longleat and Stonehenge with our 9 year old daughter. It was a good choice, the room was very clean, the staff very welcoming and attentive and the breakfast was wonderful.

My mum and I stayed at Aquae Sulis for a week and felt very welcomed. As soon as we signed in, the staff explained the Bath area and gave us suggestions of places to eat. They also did our washing for us saving us the trouble of finding a laundromat.

The room was beautiful and so comfortable and we were welcomed with a gorgeous tea set with a variety of teas, coffee and hot chocolate. Breakfast was great with an impressive selection of the great englist breakfast.

Staff were very helpful and friendly.

To get into the centre of Bath, it takes about 20-30 minutes on foot depending on pace and direction. There is also a bus stop very nearby.

This Guest House is great for a getaway.

My wife and I enjoyed to wonderful stays at Aquae Sulis. The first was booked through the Visit Bath website, so pretty much site unseen, but the pricing looked very good. Blown away by the room and the sensational bathroom as well. So much space, brilliant little touches and the breakfast was fantastic. The hosts are very friendly and helpful to the point where they will collect you from the train station as needed, and drop you back. It was so good that when it came time to return the car to Bath, we rolled up on the off chance of getting a room. They only had one available, but again it was beautiful. Cannot recommend them highly enough.

Room Tip: Ask for room 14, it is staggeringly good

We arrived here tired of travelling all day. We had a nice afternoon in the beautiful garden with a nice lager which was very relaxed. The lady that checked us in was very helpful and showed us the way into town with a map. It;s very easy to get into bath by bus. Walking is quite a long walk and I wouldn't do that again. The room was small but the bed and shower were excelent.We had to wait a bit long with breakfast since it was totally booked an therefore busy.

This is an outstanding b&b from the rooms, bedding, food, and most of the all, the staff. Our room was spacious with very comfortable beds. The bathroom was also good size. The breakfast was very good with both cold and hot foods available. Finally, Jane was an excellent host. When we inquired into taking the bus or a taxi into town so we could catch the train, she drove us to the station, which was an extremely kind act on her behalf.

The Aquae Sulis is about two miles or 3K from town, which is a slight disadvantage, but there is a good walking path from the city center.

Overall, this is an excellent place to stay, and I would definitely do so again should I be in Bath again.

Room Tip: Best deals can be found using the Aquae Sulis web site.

Thoroughly recommend Aquae Sulis. From on-line booking to checkout everything was very good. The welcome was excellent with a pot of tea while our room was prepared, and lots of helpful advice on directions, transport and eateries. The room was sizeable, very clean and well appointed. Breakfasts are very good and all staff helpful and friendly. Would certainly go back.

my wife and I spent two nights at the Aquae Sulis and had a wonderful experience. The room was spotless and well appointed. Jane gave us some excellent recommendations on how to get around and where to park, etc.. The staff was wonderful and they went out of their way to help us and even loaned us an umbrella as we had failed to purchase one on our arrival in England. The location is excellent for exploring Bath and the surrounding area.
