Bathwick Street B & B
Ranked #79 of 157 Bath B&B and Inns
Reviewed December 19, 2011

We stayed here with another couple as a base for some Christmas shopping in Bath. The first great thing about this B&B is that it offers you the option to just stay for 1 night over the weekend - I couldn't find any others without the 2 night minimum. Liza and Pete were great hosts, and made you feel extremely welcome with lots of recommendations for restaurants and things to do. The private lounge was beautiful with its huge Christmas tree, we felt like something from a period drama!

There is nothing we can criticise about our stay. The location was perfect (6 min walk to town centre), rooms were lovely, and breakfast made a nice change from the greasy fry ups you would expect from a B&B. If you're looking for an ideal base to explore Bath that's got buckets of character and charm - then I would recommend you stay here. We will certainly be back next year! Thanks Liza and Pete!

Room Tip: Both rooms were lovely, but the front bedroom is enormous and beautifully decorated. Worth the extra...

We came to Bath for the Christmas atmosphere and booked through the Bath Tourist Office not really sure what it would be like. But this B&B was a real gem of a genuine Georgian Townhouse. It felt like something from a Dickens novel. Very atmospheric, especially at night. When invited to help ourselves to drinks in the drawing room we felt really welcome.The kitchen still has a cooking range from 1800!!!. Liza and Pete were great and all in all we had a super time on our trip. Thanks .Barbara & Paul

Room Tip: 2 rooms, one smallish the other huge. Both very georgian feel.

Having been invited to a friends 40th, my husband and I wanted a reasonably priced, pretty B & B. We dislike stuffy, modernistic and clinical rooms so after having looked at photographs on the web I took the plunge! Liza texted us which was very organised and helpful for our stay. We arrived late but that wasn't a problem for her. Liza was friendly and helpful. I LOVED the house...as did Rob. The bed was sooooo comfy, the bedding and towels clean and fresh. The house was stunning yet homely and so our thing! We had a cup of tea in our room and felt very welcomed. We arrived back late and in the morning not only did Liza and her equally wonderful husband Pete provide a HUGE yummy breakfast, but we chatted and chatted and chatted! Beau their little boy was so well behaved and smiley too!
I cannot think of a nicer place that we have stayed, and with a more friendly family.
When we pop over to see our friends we will stay again. We will bring the children as they would love it too. The living room was beautiful, the bedroom equally so.
THANK YOU so much chaps...We loved it and felt very pleased with our lucky find!
All the reviews I have seen are similar so well done Liza and Pete...see you anon!

Room Tip: We had the front edroom, although there was a little noise from traffic...we thought it was so beaut...

My husband and I have just stayed here for one night as we needed somewhere close to the uni for a swimming competition, we could believe how close this actually was and how close to town it was excellent, you could also park straight outside the front door perfect!
Liza was very polite and friendly and very welcoming and she didn't mind us communicating by text of our arrival time.

A lovely property.

The breakfast was huge! And very lovely we also had a nice conversation with Liza over breccie and was greeted by little beau.

We are in bath for many of our swimming competitions so will defiantly stay here again.

Thanks
Charlotte

My wife and I stayed here together with our 15 month old son. Liza, our hostess, was very helpful in sourcing a cot for him. The room was large and comfortable. A shared bathroom was reflected in the price and was clean with plenty of hot water. We were even given use of a large lounge to ourselves. The breakfast was a real luxury - a Swedish cold fish plate, a meat plate, cereals, croissants and so on. We could walk into central Bath in about 10 minutes passing a beautiful mature park on the way in and out - perfect for our son. Liza went out of her way to make sure we were happy.

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!

Hello, thankyou so much for your lovely comments about our family and home. We were so pleased to meet you and would love to meet up again, hopefully when we visit Lithuania. It's such a pleasure to know that you enjoyed your stay, especially for your honeymoon.. We are having another bathroom put in so if you come again you will have a floor to yourselves. Thanks again, Liza, Pete and Beau.
