Reviewed February 11, 2014

We loved staying here. The beds were wonderful. Our room had every comfort. The bathroom was large and luxurious. The breakfast was the best. I had the eggs Benedict every morning...cooked to perfection. They even helped us with our tour and arranged for the bus to pick us up outside the B&B. We would stay here again. Walking distance to lots of restaurants and shopping.

We really enjoyed our 3 night stay at Chestnuts. The service was warm, friendly and efficient and the breakfasts were first class. Rooms were clean and comfortable providing all the facilities you would expect of a 5* B&B. The free on site parking was a real bonus as traffic is a nightmare with parking difficult and expensive in the city. It was literally an 8-10 minute stroll into the city centre and all amenities. Probably the best B&B we have ever stayed in!

Thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay. Very welcoming experience. Conveniently located for flat, short walk to city centre - ideal for us, with our 15 week old son. Even though it was January, local park was also a handy amenity for a stroll. Nicely furnished, modern room with ensuite. Excellent shower. Kit-kat and biscuits accompanying the tea set was a nice touch! Two delicious breakfasts too - good selection of starters and dishes from the kitchen were first class.

We really enjoyed our stay at Chestnuts and didn't want to leave, it felt welcoming as if we were staying in a friends home. The breakfast is particularly fantastic, Toni is a lovely person as well as cook and catered for my gluten intolerance amazingly. The beds are incredibly comfortable and the bathrooms are quite luxurious with fluffy white robes and all.

Chestnuts is in a very convenient yet quiet location, we drove to Bath but did all of our exploring on foot. We stayed mid week so I'm sure things would be busier on weekends but that wouldn't affect the quality of Chestnuts service as it is a very small B&B with a limited number of rooms (4 or 5 I think?). All of the staff are friendly and very happy to help you find your way around Bath.

We would be very happy to book again!

We arrived early evening and managed to get a spot on the drive way. This place is ideally located as it is in walking distance to the centre yet has parking available. If the drive way is full they give you a parking permit for on the street which is very helpful. At first we couldn't see anyone to check in but found someone in the living room who we first thought was a fellow guest. I think may have been a relative who was helping out. Check in was fast an off we went upstairs. Now I can not believe someone further down has complained they do not have a porter or lift! This is a BnB not a swanky hotel with swanky prices (although no rooms in Bath are particularly cheap)! Seriously I must admit I can be lazy but there must be all of ten little steps up to the rooms! The rooms were spotless and nicely furnished making them very comfy. The breakfast was tasty and it is nice they have a selection of DVDs in the hall way for guests to borrow and I think you are also able to use the living room area. One minor bug bear of mine would be getting a knock on the door five minutes before check out time. I've worked in hospitality and I know staff are keen to get rooms cleaned for the next arrivals but I think waiting until check out time to knock is always best. I would definitely stay here again on our next visit to Bath.

We go away quite often staying in a variety of hotels and guests but this is the best place we have ever been to. Facilities are top class and the service is exceptional. Can't wait to go back to Chestnuts to stay again.

This b&b is awesome- the rooms are spacious & clean and breakfast is phenomenal. It's within walking distance from everything to do in bath (ie thermal spa & Roman baths). The owner is very friendly and professional. Would definitely stay here again.
