The staff made us feel welcome right from the start. The lady at reception greeted us in a very friendly manner and freely volunteered to help lug bags up several flights of steps (that doesn't happen very often). The room was small but clean and only has a double bed but we were warned of that when we made the booking. We were lucky because there was a lovely view out of the window over the sportsfield and the town climbing into the hills beyond. The breakfast was excellent. All in all, a good place to stay near everything in Bath, not posh but very decent accommodation for what we paid. WiFi worked OK for us and was appreciated. Only downside is that you do need to be able to climb stairs. I would imagine that the staff here would do their best to reserve a suitable room for anyone who can't do stairs as they were so helpful.
