“Excellent place for 6 people for a week”
Reviewed 4 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Marina Villas and landlord Tony Gillingham lived up to all the praise from previous reviews. We were there for a week from June 9, 2016. Price was quite good value. We appreciated that we could start on a Thursday.

The layout of the 2-level house worked very well for the 6 adults in our group. The beds were very comfortable. Road noise could be a problem for light sleepers but didn't disturb us. The showers were very good. The shower upstairs would be perfect if it had a bar so the head could be moved up and down (for the benefit of shorties like me) but the pressure was excellent.

The place was very clean. Wifi was strong and reliable. Lighting was very good. Parking was close and free.

The kitchen was a good design. The dishwasher was great but the kitchen could use another skillet and pan or 2, plus paring knife, for those of us who actually cook on holiday. The table was big enough for us all to sit down together for meals.

The location was good, easy to get out of town by car. It was central for Stonehenge, Stourhead, Lacock, Glastonbury. There is a big Sainsbury grocery just 2 blocks away.

The only drawbacks were the washer-dryer combo, which remained a mystery even after multiple uses (thank you, Tony, for putting up the line in the garden when requested), and lack of gear in the kitchen.

Tony and Teresa were very helpful when needed (how to turn on the oven, for instance) but never intrusive. Lovely people.

“Best for money's worth”

From the roadside the house looked small but, to our great surprise, the two level house have a double bedroom, a bath, lounge, dining and kitchen + washing machine on the ground floor with another 3 rooms for 5 persons + bath on the upper floor. A very clean, comfortable and well equipped house; worth every single pound that we paid for its rental. Since our visit to Bath will be on a regular basis for the next 3 years, we will revisit on every trip.
The owner was most kind and approachable. Met all our request and even offered to park our 15 seater vehicle in front of his garage.
