“Excellent service but a few things left to be desired ...”
Reviewed April 9, 2012

Booked a weekend away in Bath looking to get away from the crowds of London & found an almost idyllic country B& B . From the moment we arrived, host Norman was extremely warm and inviting & offered us refreshment after our long journey . This continued throughout our 2night stay and the hospitality was faultless . We stayed in the silk room which was spacious with a wonderful 4 poster bed . While the room was nice , we were slightly disappointed with the bathroom facilities as there was no barrier between the shower and toilet. Even more bizarrely the door was see-through & there was no separation to stop the water leaking out from the bathroom onto the carpet outside the door ! We also felt that the curtains , sofa & cutlery could have been more thouroughly cleaned . These are only minor complaints though as they didn't stop us from thoroughly enjoying our stay . Breakfast was delicious & the location was a perfect base to visit to bath away from the crowds . If you want a peaceful weekend away then we'd highly recommend the Manor House .

We were welcomed with tea and crumpets after being shown to our room. The location is very peacful but within easy reach of Bath town. Our hosts Beth and norman made us feel so at home and nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast which was cooked to order was fantastic and we didn't want for anything. They were extremely helpful with places to visit, walks and places to eat.
We were sad to leave after our 4 days with them.

A wonderful short-break in probably one of the oldest and most characterful properties near Bath. Our hosts, Beth and Norman, made us both feel very welcome - nothing was too much trouble and breakfast which was cooked to order was wonderful. Very pleasant canal walk into Bath, for which Beth provided us with a map, directions and bottles of water, although you can also hire bicycles from near by if you'd prefer. I have to say if you're looking for a five star hotel experience you're probably wasting your time but if you looking for somewhere cosy and full of character with charming hosts I don't think you could chose a better place to stay. Truly felt like a home from home, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

We are really happy that we have choosen to stay at Manor House. It is very stylish ancient B/B with very friendly hosts - Norman and Beth, who shared with us their sincere love towards their home and Monkton Combe community. Strongly recommended for foreign people interested in English history and traditions. We have spent delicious moments while enjoying chimneys of the house. Sergey

I stayed here as part of my working in Bath and this place was a special option through work. The place is fantastic, set in the most beautiful of villages and in summer would i imagine be just about perfect. If driving though do check you don't miss the entrance and i did and ended up trying to go up a dead end !

The hotel is lovely, really old word England, with plenty of nooks and crannies and rooms set back in adjoining houses all along a small road ... really lovely. The staff were all very friendly, the room great and the food as well, both evening meal and breakfast.

Really no complaints at all on this one and would recommend to anyone to take in a stay in here if you can. Only 30 min from Bath it would be an ideal place to stop out of the hustle and bustle that Bath can be in summer.

What a beautiful location... We booked very last minute and Beth & Norman were truly magnificent from the moment we made an enquiry. The dogs were made very welcome the room was excellent. Coffee on arrival, open fire the works! We ate at the Wheelwright Arms, we recommend you visit too. Beth offered our dog Ice Reiki as he's had some problems and he seems very chilled out this evening. We loved our very brief stay and we will certainly be back. Wonderful location/ breakfast etc... Thank you x

My husband and I have just returned from a two night stay at this wonderful Manor House and just had to share this experience. The owners Beth and Norman were so welcoming, the food was excellent and our room was exactly what we expected for a Manor House. We visited the festive sites of Bath Christmas Market as well as the Splendor of Christmas Carols at Bath Abbey (even sneaked in a tour round the historic Roman Baths!). Worn out by the hussle and bussle by the end of the day, we were so glad to return (10min drive) to the retreat of this beautiful, tasteful Manor House. All in all a perfect blend of culture and retreat and I for one will most definately be back.
