“Nice place to stay in Bath”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

The location is excellent. Only a short walk from the train station, and the Roman Baths. Most shops and restaurants are within walking distance. The square, which is the pick up / drop off point for most bus tours to Stonehenge and other sights in the area, is only about 100 yards away. The room was clean and the bed very comfortable. Breakfast was great.

Awesome guesthouse in fantastic location. I came down for a friends wedding. The rooms are spacious, wonderfully decorated and clean. Liz the owner is a really kind and helpful lady, happy to be of service. I loved my stay here. Would love to stay again and fully recommend it.

Lovely guesthouse, comfortable beds, great breakfast. Very reasonably priced and very accommodating owners. Great location for exploring Bath, and close to the Train station. Would definitely go back!

My wife and I stayed at the Henry for 3 nights (June 11 through June 13). Clean accommodations with a good breakfast. The location is PERFECT. Only 300 yards from the train station. The owners were very accommodating with our late arrival (10:15pm) which was much appreciated. Price for the room is competitive for Bath. The neighborhood is very quiet at night.

Our only complaint was the size of the room. We were on the top floor (no problem as we are able to walk stairs without issue). However, between the slanted ceiling (on one side), extremely small room and a 7 1/2 foot ceiling (at it's highest point) we felt like we were in an attic closet. Unfortunately, the Inn was full and we couldn't change rooms. They do have other, larger rooms (I asked and I toured two different rooms in case we come back). Would we stay again? Yes, but not in the same room. The room was way too confining for us and we are not big people. My wife is 5' 4" and I'm 5' 11" (175 lbs)

Room Tip: My rating given to the room was solely due to the size and ceiling height. The Henry is a fine plac...

This is a wonderful guest house. High class and comfortable with welcoming staff and a proprietor who is second to none. We have stayed here on more than one occasion. The most recent being for a family wedding. Nothing was too much trouble for those running The Henry and the rate was extremely reasonable for the service they provided. The rooms are clean and well appointed. The location is excellent for connections and for the many tourist attractions in Bath. I would recommend this guest house to anyone!

My family of five recently enjoyed staying at the self service apartment just around the corner from the B&B. The location near the baths and train station was ideal and the nearby supermarket made it easy to stock the well appointed kitchen. Accommodations were spacious and the 2 bathrooms were welcomed after our cramped stay at a Paris apartment the previous week. Liz was very gracious, waiting late for our arrival after traffic delays and finding and mailing my son's Murano glass necklace he mistakenly left in a drawer.

My partner and I took an overnight trip to Bath while in the UK to attend a wedding. We were late in booking our accommodation in Bath, so I'm sure we paid a premium as a result. We found The Henry online and booked after reading the mostly positive reviews here on TA.

Overall, the stay has been great and I've got no real complaints or gripes. We stayed in Room 1.

Pros: no set check-in time (you name it when you book), great central location, rooms are VERY clean and well presented, beds a super comfy, shower is quite large for what you usually get in the UK, breakfast menu was small - but made to order and yummy with fresh fruit and cereals also available, guest house is quite (as our room was on the first landing, I was worried we'd hear all the foot traffic), and of course, free wifi.

Cons: no parking (but reasonable parking rates available just across the main road - 12 quid for 24 hours), bathroom is quite small (tricky to even dry off without whacking an elbow), rooms can get very bright at sun up which is early in summer (we had our eye masks from the flight to mitigate this), and finally, the tv reception is pretty bad - but that is fine since you should be walking around the city and no in your room.

Room Tip: On your key ring there will be a Big Ben (staying in Bath) tag. Make sure you have a read through th...
