Bob & Liz Matthews are great hosts, we felt welcome as soon as we arrived. Stayed in Room 4 on the front side of the house and it was lovely. Great shower with good water-pressure, nice big kingsize bed and cozy decor. Slept like a log! Breakfast was delicious and served attentively. Many thanks for a very pleasant stay!!

Few rooms, very well taken care of. Luxury and stylish. Clean and warm during winter. Beautiful English breakfast (absolutely loved porridge)! Liz and Bob are wonderful hosts, no need of bringing your own books, plenty available in the bedrooms and in the breakfast room.

This B&B was absolutely perfect, and the staff were so welcoming and helpful. The rooms were beautifully decorated with the most comfortable beds and linens. The bathroom was very clean and modern. In the morning we had a delicious english breakfast. Everything was absolutely perfect and I would definately recommend!

This place was pretty cool. Box is not far away from Bath, so we stayed a little bit out at Lorne House. Our room was a nice size, we were traveling with 3 adults and 1 small child. The bathroom was very modern and well lit. The rooms retained some of the charm and character of say an older place,...

We stayed for one night - it's easy to find this modern b&b in box. Checking in was straight forward and the owner helped us with bus timetables and directions. The rooms were clean and modern, and had a good ensuite. The owners cooks a good English breakfast in the morning with lots of coffee and toast. Would recommend this...
