Large shower in addition...

Nice and friendly staff, you get your key on arrival which opens the room and the main entrance to the building, they also give you a map and explain how to get out and about. Twelve minutes walk to the city centre where you can find plenty of attractions such as Roman Bath, Thermae Bath Spa, The Jane Austen Centre,...

We booked three nights here hoping for something special, the breakfast is good and the house is a nice period property but first impressions were spoilt by some pallets and traffic cones stacked up against the side of the front door entrance. For Bath this rate is actually quite reasonable but we felt the pictures on the website oversold. The...

We stayed for 2 nights on a last minute booking. We were upgraded upon arrival to a superior double with four poster bed - what a treat! Every part of our stay was perfect. The breakfast was one of the best we've ever had - good choice, freshly cooked and beautifully presented. Enough for vegetarians! Beds appeared soft, but were...

Dorian house is perched high on the hill overlooking Bath. A great spot from which to wander in to see all this city has to offer. We stayed in a room on the top floor pitched under the eaves overlooking the back and side gardens which was spacious but very warm. We needed the window open all night to manage...

The exterior of this guest house belies the well-kept interior. It is situated halfway up a hill about 10-15 minutes' walk from the centre of Bath. We had a small double room which was very comfortable and tastefully decorated. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom and shower good. There is a cosy sitting room and a bright breakfast...

Booked a short stay for myself and girlfriend and wasn't disappointed, greeted on arrival and shown to our room which was lovely. The breakfast was superb with all fresh produce and good variety. The bed was extremely comfy and the location was spot on with a short 10min walk to the roman baths. Overall a lovely stay and value for...

With a daughter at the university, we have stayed in many cheap b&bs. This one is definitely one to remember! We were given one of the top floor rooms where I managed to hit my head on an eve but that was due to the excitement of having a Nespresso machine in the room. Breakfast included fresh fruits, cooked breakfast,...
