We are a recently married couple from Spain and Lithuania and a few weeks ago we were staying in a beautifle hotel in Bath. If a dream of a traveler like us is to feel on your trip not like in a cold hotel but like at home, then this was perfect! Or, better said, it was imperfectly perfect! We were unlucky with the train connections and came late to Bath but Liza was very kind and helpful on the phone, let us to check in at 10 a. m. (!) and her husband Pete came to pick us from the station although the hotel was close indeed! He also gave us a short tour from the car through the main city attractions and indicated the best way for walking there. Pete and Liza were very kind, had a lot of information on tourist sites at the B&B and treated us like friends.
After talking on the phone, we met Liza and their lovely child first in a cheese festival which was actually the aim of our trip to Bath. The adjusted to our needs and likes, gave advises on things to do and to see. The room was very big and spatious and felt like in georgian house of XVIII century. We are admirers of historical houses and art, and that was a perfect match for us. The living room could be used by all the guests staying in house, and the bathroom was shared, but that didn't cause any trouble. Everything was charmful and lovely, though not perfect in a material sense. After a tiring day we felt privileged to lie down on a stylish bed and take tea and coffee from a kit that was left for us in the room. We could pay in a most convienent way for us by card or cash, there were no problem at all. They even gave us a good price for a next stay! (which was absolutely unnecesarry, as we would pay for this quality).
The best part was still waiting for us in the morning - an abundant breakfast in a unique Liza's kitchen. Spanish jamon, bioled eggs, toasted bread, a variety of marmalades and chutneys, English tea and tasty coffee, everything was served by Liza during a kind conversation with her, little Beaux and a pleased couple of other guests. And the biggest surprise was delicious cheese they had bought on the festival last evening! I repeat again, it felt like home and even more than that. This was not a customer-host relations, it was more like friendship. We left this nice hotel with a lot of illusion to be back there with family and friends or maybe to see Liza, Pete and Beaux in our city on their travel some day! Thank you again for your hospitality!
