Travelling with a 2 year old can be a little stressful but we were immediately at ease on arrival at Abbey Rise with a lovely warm welcome from Katherine. We had a gorgeous weekend in Bath and enjoyed 2 nights accommodation in the family room at Abbey Rise with a lovely view over to the town. The room was very comfortable with a king bed, a single bed and a small ensuite bathroom and tea/coffee-making facilities. There are nice touches like current magazines and lots of DVDs available from downstairs to watch in your room. 
Breakfast was provided in the dining room with lots of options including a choice of a full English breakfast which was a treat. Our son was well-catered for with his own place set at the table and had a lovely time even ending up in the kitchen and back garden with entertainment provided by Katherine's son! 
Getting into town by foot is an easy walk and there is a car park to leave the car which is great. Katherine can provide plenty of suggestions on where to go and places to eat.

Katherine made us feel at home from the moment we arrived. She stopped and visited with my nieces about her time working in Buckingham Palace and answered all of their questions. She fed us an excellent hot breakfast with fresh fruit and bread. The house was clean and comfortable and only a short walk into the City Centre. Katherine gave us some great touring tips and treated us like family. We will certainly stay again!

One of the cleanest B&B's I've ever stayed at! Very comfy beds and very quiet, despite the fact that we had the window open all night (we had a room facing the garden).
The owner Katherine had put out a chocolate cake for her guests and it was lovely!
Good location, only a short walk to the city centre and buses / railway station.
I really liked the fact that breakfast was served at one long table, it gave great opportunties to talk to other guests from all around the world.
Katherine runs a great B&B here and I strongly recommend it!
Our room was on the smaller side, but we didn't mind as everything else was so great.

My girlfriend and I stayed for 2 nights and it couldn't have been better. We got there quite late on the Friday but it was no problem for Linda, who was looking after the place while Katherine was away. We did get a cab to the place from the train station but it took less than 5 minutes and, as we discovered, is easily walkable.

The B&B is around 10 minutes walk from the centre of Bath, which is ideal, and meant we could head back after a day's sight-seeing and go back in to town for dinner.

We had a room in the top floor, which gave us a great view over the city. The room was comfortable, with a nice little en suite bath room, and some shortbread!

Breakfast was a continental one, rather than cooked. But this was no problem as it probably did us more good to have a more healthy breakfast! Cereal, toast, fruit, tea and coffee were all we needed. Linda was a lovely host, she even let us have breakfast late on the Sunday, and let us leave our bags there to collect before our train left later in the day.

I'd highly recommend a stay here, great value, great location.

We had a very comfortable three night stay at Abbey Rise. The owner Katherine was very welcoming and helpful. We had the family room at the top of the house which was tastefully furnished and decorated and very clean. The breakfasts were freshly made with plenty of variety and options for vegetarians and gluten free diets (requested by other guests also staying there). Katherine provided home made cakes during the day, which was a nice touch. It was just a short walk into town, so we could leave the car in the carpark until we left. We would recommend this to others looking for a short break in Bath.

The B&B is situated next to the city center and is a good value.
The room was nice and clean.
The bathroom was small and we had a problem with the sink.
The breakfast was very good with a lot of choice.
The staff was nice but not that friendly.
