“Wish we could have stayed longer!”
Reviewed 25 April 2012 via mobile

This is the best B&B we have stayed in to date. It is really convenient for travelling to Bath by bus (they run until 11pm and the stop is right outside!). The pub next door is excellent, well worth a visit.
Our hosts, Gilly and Damien were really friendly and welcoming, and cook an AMAZING breakfast!
We have never stayed at the same place twice, but would make an exception for this B&B. All in all a great experience at an unbeatable price considering Bath is somewhere where things tend to be overpriced. Well done guys!

No surprises to see that every single review is rated excellent given the exceptional standard of accommodation, breakfast and general ambiance of the property. Having said that, I myself work in providing property to people on a short-term basis and it is notoriously difficult if not impossible to attain a 5* rating on such a consistent basis so kudos to The Cedars for doing so. If ever I get the chance to visit bath again I know exactly where I'll be staying.

This is the best b&b we have ever stayed at. The b&b is a new modern building, built in 2010. When we arrived we were greeted by Damian and he was very pleasant and showed us the facilities and our room. We were staying in room 1 which was very spacious with a large bathroom all excellently done and very clean. If you fancied a night in you can use the living room/kitchen with a 40 inch tv and couches. In your room there is a smaller tv with an integrated DVD player and a bookcase of available DVDs to watch. There is also a pub next door which serves good food. The breakfast in the morning is exceptional. The full English will keep you going until dinner. There is other options of fresh fruit and smoked salmon/scrambled eggs with the normal cereals and juice. Nothing is too much trouble. To get into Bath there is a bus every 15 mins going from outside the b&b up until 11.30 at night. The only problem with doing this review is that next time we are going to stay here we will have problems getting in. Thank you Damian and Gilly you have provided a little gem of a b&b.

We were welcomed by the owner who showed us around and told us to make ourselves at home, which we did! The breakfast offered is extensive ~ cereal, fresh fruit, croissant, toast or a full english served with freshly brewed coffee or tea. The beds are comfortable and there are good amenities provided ~ a well stocked fridge, tea/coffee making facilities. The location is excellent, it's a very quick drive into Bath and there is a lovely pub within walking distance which serves excellent food.

We have just spent 3 nights at The Cedars and we have had a lovely, lovely stay with Damian and Jilly (the very welcoming hosts). Having decided to spend a little time in the Bath area, we looked for accommodation in the city, but were drawn to The Cedars, which is so well placed for travel into Bath by bus - we decided to take this option on one day of our stay and were so pleased we had done. We had a full day sightseeing, ate at Sotto Sotto (highly recommended, by the way) and came back by bus, as they run till late. The Cedars is a lovely new building. Our room was large with a lovely shower room and really comfy bed. Breakfast is prepared and served in a beautiful kitchen/lounge area - it feels very much as if you are part of the family. Everything is delicious and special requests are fully catered for. We ate twice in The Crown next door - a pub which styles itself as a French bistro. The food was good and reasonably priced on both occasions - great not to have to use the car either. Thank you to our hosts for welcoming us into their lovely home. We hope to pay a return visit!

Fantastic B&B just outside of Bath that offers a great alternative to the offerings in Bath itself which generally tend to be a little cottage-y and dated in style. Rooms are nice and big, bathrooms modern and clean and the facilities are excellent. Great breakfasts offered in the morning with very friendly and easy-going hosts who are happy to help out with recommendations for the day. Cannot recommend this B&B enough!!

Room Tip: Room 5 is the biggest room but closest to the kitchen/dining/TV open-plan area so if you are a light...

I decided to book a 2 day break for myself and my husband to celebrate his 30th birthday! I was in between two minds when it came to the location, but I was so glad I chose the Cedars. The Journey into Bath only took us 10min max with traffic. This is by far the best bed and breakfast I have ever visited. You get cooked a nice fresh Breakfast every morning, the Salmon and Scramble eggs are yummy! The only small little thing i would change is the pillows.....its very firm and high, I would like a selection of pillows in the room. Other than that, i can't fault anything! These people are obviously doing something right by the sound of it and I would recommend them to anyone!
