“Most excellent!”
Reviewed February 17, 2014 via mobile

We stayed for two nights starting on Valentine's Day. The room was bedecked with hearts, chocolates and a bottle of plonk. The staff were welcoming and the room very clean. The bath and shower were great although the water was not very hot. The four poster bed was great and the mattress was very comfortable. Breakfast in the room was good if not fantastic but the fact we had it in the room watching the Winter Olympics was a bonus. All in all a lovely find in a great city!

I totally agree with the previous review about the great attention to detail and we found our one-night stay very pleasurable. It was refreshing compared to the impersonal and noisy experience often found in hotels (door-slamming all night, anyone?!).

We also had a warm welcome from the owner and were very pleased when we were shown our room at the top of the house with a nice central view of town. As well as the decent TV, there was a/c, iPod dock / radio alarm, hairdryer, hot drinks (the chocolate was very good!), and also a table and chairs.

The showerroom was clean and compact but big enough, the water pressure on the top floor took a while to get going but was good enough when it did.

The system of ordering breakfast was simplicity itself and having it delivered on time to the room the following morning (at the latest 9:15-9:30 slot!) was great.

Having free parking around the back was a bonus and having a key to the front door was convenient and the property felt secure.

The location is fantastic as it is only about 5 minutes walk to the main shopping street and the local pubs / restaurants.

Yes, we would recommend this place!

Room Tip: Our room faced the front of the building / road and the very occasional car passing by in the night...

The Bath House is the perfect place to stay for a night or longer in Bath. 5-10 minutes walk from the very heart of the city. Parking is a big bonus (although spaces are small so if you've a big car might struggle).The welcome from the owners is really warm and personal. They are always on hand to help with anything you might need help with.

The room we stayed in (number 1) was beautifully decorated, very romantic in theme, lots of hearts etc. The 4 poster bed was very comfortable and the ensuite large and equally well thought out, with toiletries and huge fluffy towels.

Breakfast (that you chose the night before) being served in the room at a time to suit you is a really good idea and the food was good. The room has lots of little notes to explain how things work or where things are which is soooo helpful.

The owners followed up our stay with a really kind personal email which really is going a step above!

Good value for the quality of the accommodation and it's location. Will definitely choose The Bath House for our next visit to Bath.

Room Tip: Room 1 is full of hearts, red, pinks and purples if you're looking for a romantic vibe!

My partner and I stayed in the serviced apartment recently. We were really impressed with the size and layout. We thought it was great and will happily recommend it to friends and family visiting Bath.

An absolutely perfect place to stay. The Portuguese owners were a delight, nothing was too much trouble for them. The room was beautifully furnished, 4 poster bed, huge bath. It was spotless and had many extra touches in it.
The breakfast was delicious and served in the room at a time of your choice.
There was information available for eating places/things to do.
Absolutely cannot fault this place at all, it thoroughly deserves its 5 star rating!

Room Tip: We had a room at the back of the house which was lovely and quiet, this was chosen for us.

Everything about it makes The Bath House is the perfect place to stay in Bath - whether it be the ambiance of the impeccably kept rooms, the quality of the hearty breakfast or the service and welcome you receive, I cannot find a fault with this quaint little B&B...couple this with the perfect location in central Bath and it really is 'the perfect place to stay in Bath'
