5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2012

My husband and I stayed at Hill House during our recent holiday of UK and Europe. Harry and Douglas really know the meaning of hospitality , their attention to detail is outstanding. Breakfast was out of this world and really put the first class hotels we stayed in for the rest of our holiday to shame.Thank you once again for our warm welcome and great stay.We both highly recommend this B&B if you want to feel special.

My husband and I spent 4 nights with Douglas and Harry in late May. They were wonderful hosts and terriffic cooks. The breakfasts are REALLY GOOD and the service was excellent. I enjoyed meeting the other guests each morning and learning what their travel plans were. Our room was clean, comfy and nicely appointed. The tea and coffee they left with milk and cookies was a very nice touch. Douglas also helped us with rental car information and sights in the city and surrounding areas. I would definately recommend Hill House to anyone visiting Bath - you'll love Douglas and Harry.....Guaranteed!!

Room Tip: We stayed on the third floor which gave us a nice view out of any of the windows in our room althoug...

Hill House is a Bath gem! Newly renovated and sparkling from head to toe, it's spotlessly clean and very atmospheric. The comfy bed with fluffy duvets made getting up a real challenge every morning. Breakfast was a real feast with Douglas's eggs Benedict on salmon and potato cake which he also cooked with absolute perfection in its original version as well as delicious mushrooms on toast. Fresh fruit, muesli and not to mention his homemade orange marmelade and jams were the best start-ups to the day and are to die for.
Topped with Harry feeding you with a wealth of information about everything you need to know in the area, made this the most memorable trip to Bath ever and certainly not the last one.
Douglas and Harry are the friendliest and most welcoming hosts I've met, including Jasper their terrier! Thanks for making my stay so special!

My friend and I stayed 2 nights at HIll House. We can not agree enought with all the wonderful comments on Trip Advisor . Douglas Harry and Jasper are a good enough reason on there own to return to Bath. This is more like a boutique hotel not a B&B. It is chic, stylish and the food is fabulous. The bed was extreme comfortable Egyptian cotton towels, the bed linen was so soft 200 thread count. The bedroom was very well equiped plasma tv. Tea/coffee making facilities and fresh milk. The bathroom/shower room was to die for. We can not praise them, and HIll House enough. X

My Wife and I have just returned from a fantastic stay at Hill House for our 10th Wedding Anniversary. Hill House is very stylish and relaxing with wonderfully eclectic interiors. Our room was beautifully decorated and the shower was wonderful.

Harry and Douglas are exceptional hosts, where nothing is too much trouble. They're a mine of useful recommendations of what to see and where to eat in Bath. Breakfast is amazing, with a choice cereal, fresh fruit or cooked (the Eggs Benedict were great).

Located a five minute walk from the centre of Bath, this will definitely be our choice of residence for future trips.

Keep up the great work guys!

This B&B is more like a boutique hotel. The owners, Harry and Douglas are wonderful hosts and have endeavoured to think of everything to make their guests' stays comfortable and memorable. And if they haven't thought of it, you only need ask and it will be done. The rooms are luxuriously appointed and the sheets so soft, I fell asleep in minutes! The B&B is spotlessly clean which only adds to your comfort. Douglas's breakfasts are vast and delicious (try his Mushrooms a la Creme on toast) and really set you up for the day. Harry is jovial and a very hardworking waiter who'll keep you plied with pots of tea and fresh brewed coffee while you meet the other guests. He's also a wealth of information on good local eating spots for dinner. Their Parson's Jack Russell, Jasper, is a real wag. :-) I can't recommend Hill House highly enough and look forward to returning one day.

Certainly a sole reason to go to Bath! We arrived muddy and tired from walking the last leg of the Cotswold way and were received with such kindness and joy it was unbelievable! The owners are beyond nice and bend over backwards to make our stay more comfortable.
The entire hotel is full of beautiful things: paintings, sculptures, pillows. The rooms are very clean, very new, and practically perfect. Quite designy but then in contrast to other designer rooms very very comfortable. Breakfast was a feast!
I would recommend this hotel for sure to anyone who is planning a trip to Bath!

Room Tip: I bet every room is perfect!

Welcome to our home! Hill House was built in 1765 at the end of a Georgian terrace behind the Assembly rooms in Central Bath.

All bedrooms are equipped with newly appointed shower rooms, 32” digital Televisions, hairdryers and free wifi. The more the stairs the better the views from the rooms across Bath to the countryside beyond!Breakfast is served in our dining room on one large table, where reccomendations of what to see and where to eat are shared. Besides a choice of cereals etc we also offer a choice of two cooked breakfasts per day which vary throughout the week. We are able to cater for most dietary requirements but ask for as much notice as possible as we do not carry some items as stock as we are only a small establishment.This is our home and we want you to be able to relax in it. We have ironing facilities and a house sewing kit to hand. If you need anything else please ask and we will see what we can do.Hill House is a 2 minute walk from the Assembly Rooms and five minutes from the main shopping centre and Royal Crescent. There are plenty of local places to eat and drink close by and we would be happy to give recommendations upon request.On street Parking permits are available but will need to be reserved. ... more   less
