“Charming!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2006

This is a charming, well appointed hotel with delightful staff. We've just returned from two nights in Oldfields staying in room 17 with 4 poster and jacuzzi. The bed was extremely comfortable and I loved the way it was made up with sheets and waffle blankets rather than a duvet. The bathroom in this room is large and luxurious. We were also shown the triple room (as I'm planning to come back with my mother and sister when they start offering spa packages), which was equally delightful. Breakfast was delicious, especially the scrambled eggs with smoked salmon and the coffee, for once, was strong enough for my wake-up kick. The only thing I would change is to substitute fair trade products for Nestle in the rooms.

  • Liked — Luxuriously appointed rooms, friendliness of staff and location - quiet and convenient
  • Disliked — Non-fair trade tea & coffee in rooms

I stayed at Oldfields for a wedding in Bath along with my mum and dad and sister. I run a B&B myself (---) so am very good at comparing (!) and my stay at Oldfields was very pleasant. Set up a steep hill (taxi is a must for the faint hearted!) it has its own parking which is a bonus in big cities. The entrance is homely and includes a nice lounge where you can have tea or coffee. Our rooms were good sizes and beds were comfy. The bathrooms had lovely spa baths and fabulous hair and shower products were provided. Tea and coffee facilities were there, TV (with sky sports too!) and a DVD player (DVDs available from reception). Only gripe would be that one of the rooms didnt have a mirror of any sort except in the bathroom but that was a minor problem! Good choice of fresh food for breakfast and staff friendly. About 15 minute walk to centre- Lovely. On the pricey side but no doubt that is only due to being in one of the most touristy cities in England.

  • Liked — Comfortable good sized rooms and on the spot parking

I stayed 5 nights at Oldfields Hotel and enjoyed it very much.
Oldfields is a large Victorian Bath-stone house located on a hill, which is an easy 10 minute walk down to the centre of Bath. Local shops and pub are just 5 minutes walk up the hill. The hosts and staff were friendly and helpful. My room was very clean, and well appointed with a LCD TV, air conditioner, and a shower with plenty of hot water. Each morning a delicious cooked breakfast was served in the dining room, which has views over Bath. I would recommend Oldfields to anyone looking for an excellent standard B&B/Guesthouse in Bath.

Up a steep hill, away from the city center lies Old Fields - a serene and comfortable bed & breakfast in Bath. My husband, daugther and I were greeted and checked in while seated in a common room which contains soft sofas, magazines and newspapers, tea facilities and a computer for guest use. During our July stay, the UK was experiencing record high temperatures. We were delighted to find that our first floor room #7 had a silent, remote-controlled air conditioning unit installed high upon the wall. The staff advised that not all of Oldfields' rooms can be retrofitted with AC, so check with the proprietors if this is important to you. I am sensitive to traffic noise, yet this room was almost absent of outside sounds even though it is on the street side. Recessed lighting provided excellent illumination for reading. The room had high ceilings, beautiful crown moulding and drapery. All were fresh and spotless. The room also contained tea making facilities (with real china), along with shortbreads and bottled water. The room was nicely set with a comfortable King bed and twin rollaway. The bath is modern - very tiny, hardly any space for toiletries - but includes the luscious Moulton Brown bath products. Full English breakfast is included - it was good but not noteworthy. I strongly recommend Oldfields.

My wife and I have recently returned from spending a very enjoyable week at The Oldfields Hotel in Bath. We looked at a number of different hotels in Bath before deciding to book a week at The Oldfields Hotel.
Their website is pretty good but you actually have to go and stay in The Oldfields Hotel to appreciate just how good the place is. The rooms are perfect, so clean and with high quality fixtures and fittings, the air conditioning was a particular bonus as we had very warm weather all week.
The public rooms are decorated to the same high standard as the bedrooms. The breakfast was excellent, superbly cooked and served. I've got to say that the scrambled eggs were the best I've ever tasted!
I cannot praise the owners and their staff highly enough nothing was too much trouble for them and they seemed to really enjoy working there. They certainly made it a wonderful week for us.

It was lovely to walk on the grass in bare feet!! Coming from OZ with our drought, only an Aussie would know how nice it feels.
Sean, Stella, Barbara & Tasha made our 4 day stay memorable.
Nothing was a problem, good chats during and after breakfast. It really was a pleasure to stay with you, and may your individual noted aspirations achieve their potential in the coming years.
Thanks a heap from 2 'mature gentlemen'. Tom & Roger

We have just come back from a 2 night stay at Oldfields with our friends.
Spotless, spacious, beautiful and wonderfully fragrant accommodation. The staff were all very friendly and helpful.
Reccommended restaurants were sent to us well before our stay with advise on booking well in advance. We chose Tilley's Bistro, which we all loved so much that we are planning to go back there just for the evening, from Salisbury !
We will definately be going back to Oldfields, for us there is no point looking for anywhere else. This is one of the nicest places I have stayed, the air con was a fabulous bonus,very much appreciated after walking back from town [ especially as it was a very hot weekend]. the breakfast was lovely with a very good selection of cereals, fruits, juices, and even a full english, veggie style !
I would thoroughly recommend this Hotel.
