“Fabulous”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

We spent a long weekend at The Chestnuts and had a fabulous time. Toni, the owner, greeted us and apologised that he had been called away so would be absent during our stay, advising that Sophie would look after us. We could not have been in better hands: Sophie is friendly; informative; smiley and nothing was too much trouble - an absolute star. Our room was spacious, the bed comfortable, the shower fab, the bathroom spacious and everything was spotlessly clean. We also love the decor, very boutique and, thankfully, not a chintz in sight. The breakfast was great, loved the fresh fruit salad and the cooked options were lovely: well presented; well cooked and with quality products. Little cakes in the room and fresh milk are a really nice touch. The Chestnuts is also in a great location just a short walk from the centre. As you can tell we loved our stay, it really is a fab. B&B, and we can't wait to come back.

The host was very nice, breakfast was large and very lovely, the B&B was situated at walking distance from the city centre so it was very well located, we could visit everything by foot. Our room was very lovely and clean, nice bathroom, not too big but also not too small, with a nice shower. We also got a free permit to park our car in the street for free and a discount tag with which we could get discounts in several museums! A very nice couple of days in Bath :)

Everything about the Chestnuts House is top quality. Tony is a very gracious host and a marvelous cook. His breakfasts are outstanding. The bedroom & ensuite bath were beautifully decorated and very well appointed with lots of little extras, especially the cozy housecoats. Every afternoon little cakes were delivered to your room to have with your tea or coffee. The B&B is about 20 minutes walk from the train station or downtown. Very centrally located. Certainly made our stay in Bath very enjoyable and memorable.

A wonderful location for exploring bath. You can leave your car at the hotel and take the short 10 minute trip into the town centre. The rooms were excellent and the service was superb. Nothing was too much trouble and the owners help and knowledge of Bath was very useful. The breakfasts really set you up for the day ahead. All in all a great experience and I would highly recommend this hotel for people wishing to explore Bath.

Chestnuts House was the perfect B&B! It is centrally located – just a short (and level) walk to the center of Bath – which is a good thing, since a visit to this beautiful city entails a lot of walking! We stayed here in May 2013, with our two grown children and their spouses – we all loved our stay here. The rooms were nicely decorated, beds comfortable, and all was spotlessly clean. The breakfasts were absolutely delicious – including freshly prepared smoothies – all this served in a cheerful breakfast room overlooking a pretty English garden. Our host, Toni, was very well informed about places to visit and recommended a few places in the Cotswolds which proved to be beautiful – Thanks, Toni! We would highly recommend this B&B to all.

We recently stayed at Chestnuts and thoroughly enjoyed it. The room was spotlessly clean and furnished to a very high standard with lots of little extra touches to make our stay special. The location was ideal and within walking distance to the City centre. Toni was the perfect host and nothing was too much trouble. His breakfasts were wonderful and we would highly recommend the scrambled eggs with smoked salmon! We would not hesitate to recommend this B&B and will definitely stay here again if we return to Bath.

Now that we are back in Sydney we are reviewing our b&b's and hotels we stayed in during our trip to UK & Europe over a 3 month period. We stayed at 'Chestnuts' in the beautiful city of Bath during late May. We were not disappointed, the positive reviews on TA were all correct and we are going to join them by saying this is one of the best b&b's we have stayed in over the years. Tony, the owner operates a professionally run house. Our clean, neat and tidy twin room for 3 nights was cosy, fresh and inviting and had everything one requires for a short day such as ours. The ensuite bathroom had all the usual essentials with good toiletries. The attention to detail, like the Thermos fresh milk container which accompanied the basket of teas, coffees, biscuits, muffins etc., the 'Roberts' DAB radio with provision for smart phone charging and iPhone music. The WiFi was fast and strong.
The breakfasts offered both continental and traditional English styles with many choices and combinations, plus of course, coffee and a choice of various teas.
'Chestnuts' is only a 15 minute walk from the rail station, one could deviate a little through beautiful Henrietta Park on the way. It's less walking time to all the major attractions in Bath and the many cafes and restaurants.
Staying at a place like 'Chestnuts' or indeed, any other well run, professional b&b, beats staying in any hotel. Tony was also very helpful and knowledgeable about Bath, his recommendations were noted. We would have no hesitation in staying here again.
