“Cute, clean B&B, great location with bus stop on front door”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

Rooms are very clean and the location is terrific - the bus stop is right outside. The only comment we had is that it's very very loud - you can hear every voice and footstep. We had a room on the ground floor right next to the stairwell and as people came up and down the stairs, it was very loud (almost like they were in our room). We could also hear everything in the room above us. So despite all else being great, I wouldn't say it was particularly relaxing or restfu unfortunately.

HI and thanks so much for taking the time to review us and for your positive comments on the guest house. We were, however, so sorry to read that your visit was marred by disturbance from the staircase leading to the room above - it gives access to just the one bedroom above yours. Your feedback is very helpful and has given us food for thought to see what sound-proofing improvement we might be able to make. With best wishes, Jane and David

Lovely, perfectly maintained building with adorable garden out back. Our room was immaculate and beautifully decorated. Staff went out of their way to be helpful, accommodating and friendly. Convenient location, but it is a bit of a long walk into the city (roughly 30 minutes), even more so after we were tired from a long day! So we took the local buses or taxi and this worked fine. We were sad to leave Aquae Sulis and will definitely return! For the price, I don't think you could find a better place to stay while in Bath!

This little comfortable B&B leaves nothing to be desired. The domestic servants are friendly and nice, the rooms are beautiful, clean and "British" and the food is fresh, delicious and held in a friendly, quiet atmosphere.
We will always come back when we visit our child in Uni.

It is the first hotel my parents stayed in European countries in their month long trip, and it left them a great impression of the British style guesthouse. But as we walked more than half an hour from the train station to the place, they were also exhausted in walking. Anyway aqua sulis looks the best among the houses along that street and my parents thought it worthed the effort. The family room they gave us was spacious and elegant, the breakfast is also good and with big portion. Considering about the price and surrounding, I may say it is a good value of money, if you have a car, this place would be wonderful for you.

Hi and thanks so much for sending in your review. We are glad that your parents enjoyed the 'British' experience of their first guest house. We are sorry that you had to walk from the train station - we do offer a courtesy car to and from the train and bus stations for future reference. We hope that your parents have taken back some good memories of Bath and that you will be able to bring them back on a future occasion. With best wishes, Jane, David and Ana

I had a one night stay here on 16th September with my teenage son, visiting Bath for an open day at Bath Spa University. We had a very pleasant stay. The room was clean and comfortable with a nice new TV and an immaculately clean en-suite shower room with lovely toiletries. The staff were extremely helpful, even offering my son a lift into Bath that afternoon. He decided to walk, and did so comfortably in under half-an-hour, so quite convenient for town centre and extremely convenient for Bath Spa Uni which is a straight-forward, 5 minute drive away. Service was a wee bit slow at breakfast but the food was tasty and well-cooked. Would definitely recommend to anyone needing accommodation for a short stay in Bath. I wouldn't hesitate to return if my son gets a place at the Uni!

We stayed two nights in early September, in order to give ourselves a full day's walking on the final section of the Cotswold Way. We had a lovely quiet double room, and an excellent breakfast each morning. The staff arranged a 9am taxi to Dyrham, from where we followed the well-marked footpath southwards into Bath.
The Aqua Sulis was a pleasant place to stay, and the ample parking was useful. There is a frequent bus service along the main road into the town centre. We hope to come again some time to look in more detail at Bath's own attractions. (Booking directly with the hotel gives a small Sunday discount).

Room Tip: Our room was so quiet because it overlooked the garden, not the main road.
