I booked a two night stay at The Place to celebrate my partner's birthday. It was so beautifully presented that I thought it was the right place to propose to her too! She said yes :)
...The Place is very tastefully decorated and has everything you need and more. We particularly liked the chocolates and prosecco! The location is great. It is at the top of a hill, but we didn't find this to be too strenuous and the reward is a stunning view from the lounge.
I cannot think of anything which could be done to make The Place any more perfect. We really loved our stay and hope to return again in the future.
i booked the place for myself and my husband for our mini honeymoon when i was booking my stay at greys (for the night before the wedding) another absolutely lovely boutique bnb owned by the same people.
After our wedding my new husband and i arrived at the place sarah and michael had thoughtfully left the lights on and had left us a little welcome newlyweds gift, our bed was beautiful made up with soft white rose petals spelling out LOVE walking upstairs to discover the delights of the place we had fresh crusty bread and eggs to allow us to make up a breakfast in the morning fresh orange juice, milk and cheeky little bottle of prosecco which me and the new hubby enjoyed whilst opening up a few wedding cards.
the next day we were able to take in the most beautiful view of bath city it was a perfect morning.
the walk into bath from the place does'nt take that long about 10mins and you come right to the train station also at the end of the hill if u need anything theres a little co-op
you can get a taxi back up the hill which is about £5, but i found i manage ok and if i can walk up a hill like that anyone can.
everything at the place is carefully thought out the bedding is amazing one of the best night sleeps. it even smells beautiful to which i had to go and buy the room sprays they use!
we most certainly will be back to celebrate our one year anniversary !!!!
thank you sarah and michael

All the other reviews have summed up this ‘Place’ perfectly - it is a unique find in a gorgeous city, Sarah is the perfect hostess, everything was of a very high standard and we couldn’t praise or recommend the apartment more. Look no further and stay here, you’ll have no regrets and feel rather proud of yourselves that you did!
Within a short walk is Widcombe and a parade of shops including Gastro pubs and a Deli. All of which were very handy.
Then with a short hop, skip and a jump over the river you are in Central Bath which has history around every corner and is so clean. It has fantastic shopping, restaurants and museums, all within walking distance.
The Place is beautifully furnished and equipped and also manages to surprise with thoughtful touches from lavender bags on your pillows to a decanter sherry to share. It has a wonderful relaxing atmosphere, making the guest feel transported - bliss!
This is a most cherished place- possibly one of the most carefully and beautifully designed I have visited. The owners have thought of every detail which ensured we had a luxurious and special stay; fresh flowers, calm lighting, the most comfy bed, a little hamper, chocolates and prosecco- and no it wasn't even Valentines Night!
It is a wonderful upside down house, so that the panoramic views of Bath and the surrounding hillside flood into the lounge and all this only a short walk from town. A real find to treasure!
