Stayed for our anniversary, attentive staff, beautiful breakfast, excellent location, just beautiful. The teddy bear gift on check out was a lovely touch. Also we received an anniversary card which was very thoughtful. We stayed in a room on the top floor which was cosy and had the biggest bathroom with an amazing bath and shower. Will definitely be returning...

My husband and I drove into Bath during a weeklong driving trip through the English countryside and did not have reservations anywhere. We called this location based on the TripAdvisor reviews. This B&B was entirely accommodating and we were offered the Garden Room and given a great price..the hospitality here is first rate. I did not get up in time...

I agree with all the good reviews of Apsley House, however, with hindsight, we would have preferred to stay nearer to the centre of Bath. Gilly told us when booking that we could catch a bus to town, and that they came along every 10 to 15 minutes. Well we had to wait 30 minutes each way, and talking to...

Really really enjoyed our trip to Apsley House. the staff were all so friendly and very helpful despite our late arrival and our last minute appearance at breakfast. Rooms are all lovely as well. To get into the centre of town was very easy - we either walked in (about 20/25 minutes) or a £6 taxi journey. Only two minor...

Our stay here was excellent in every way, the accommodation, breakfast, attention to detail was excellent. We were made to feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. The walk through the park and along side the Royal Terrace was beautiful, something we would not have discovered if we hadn't been staying on this side of Bath. Highly recommended.

I'm not sure there's much more I can add to the reviews from others as we only stayed at the Apsley for a single night, however we were made to feel very welcome during our brief stay. Staff were attentive and helpful from the moment that we arrived, the room was lovely and breakfast was a wonderful experience. I just...

The last few reviews are all spot on. A beautiful property, tastefully furnished, outstanding hosts/management. Nothing was ever too much trouble. The honesty bar is a great idea and was much enjoyed! Look forward to returning.

We chose this charming hotel for a romantic getaway in Bath to celebrate my boyfriend's finishing his final ever exam. We were absolutely thrilled with our choice- the Mornington Room surpassed all expectations as did the wonderful staff and food. The breakfast was incredible- Raphael went to great lengths to cater for every request including making Hollandaise sauce from scratch....
