We stayed here during December, 2008 and I have to say the stay was a mixed bag. The good points were that it had a nice decor, location, (although it wasn't the best about a 15 minute walk to the city centre - there were others that were better) and adequate facilities. Price was reasonable, but not that much cheaper. Now on to the bad points and trust me there were quite a few. I hate to whinge about 14 Raby place but I feel I must warn potential customers what they will be paying for. Let me just say I have been around the world and have stayed in countless number of hotels, B&Bs and even hostels. The worst part of the stay was the heating was turned off from about 12am onwards - meaning we got woken up several times because of the cold. We had to put on our ski jackets (yep you heard it right) so we could go back to sleep again. The next day at breakfast, we felt Mrs Guy (the owner) - although pleasing on the outside, was a bit of a character to handle. When I finished pouring the cereal, she immediately came over and put it back on the shelf - perhaps suggesting that one bowl was enough. She had an interesting way of making conversation. She suggested the people down the road, at another guest house (19 Raby I think it was) was so successful because they were drug dealers or something. We could not believe what we heard!
Anyway, we just thought it was an interesting encounter to share with everyone. You can certainly find better places to stay in Bath.
