“Ideal accommodation in Bath”
Reviewed 11 October 2009

I stayed at Ian and Ali's homely bed and breakfast for a night and I have absolutely nothing to complain about. The room, breakfast, overall service and not to mention Ian and Ali's warm welcome were all excellent. Not very far from the city centre and the university, the accommodation is in an ideal location. If you are looking for a nice place to stay at a reasonble price then look nowhere else.

We spent 4 nights at High Beeches. The room was very large and bright, the bed was great, and the shower is exactly what you want a shower to be (including big enough for two). Ali and Ian provided everything we needed, including a great breakfast and flashlights for evening walks. Definitely take Ali's recommendation to eat at the Packhorse Inn, a 10 minute walk down a country lane. High Beeches is very convenient for visiting Bath, Stonehenge, Avebury, Lacock, and High Combe. We do recommend that you get detailed directions to High Beeches from Mapquest or some other service.

Our stay at High Beches in Bath was the first night of our Cornwall vacation. What a way to start! It made it difficult for all the other B&Bs/Guesthouses to come:
Ian and Ali are lovely hosts why will give you a very warm welcome and have always valuable tipps for exploring the area. The rooms are large and very comfy, the house is just beautiful. And if you are looking for a very delicious breakfeast, this is the place to go.
But you definitely need a car, as it is a bit too far from the city centre - we had one, so it was perfectly fine for us!

An absolute pleasure to stay in such a nice clean, well decorated, comfortable and cozy room, with every thing catered for. Fresh milk for tea and coffee on arrival, a nice touch, and a good breakfast to set you up for the day. Really made to feel welcome.

First class B&B. We loved our large, beautifully decorated front bedroom and ensuite bathroom with 2 (yes 2) side by side showers. Excellent breakfast and tea, coffee, fresh milk and biscuits in the room, very welcome. Wine glasses provided in the room, another nice touch. Ian couldn't do enough for his guests. Delightful dog added to homely feel. A bit difficult to find, but entirely our fault as we failed to print off the very helpful directions. We mention this so no-one else makes the same mistake.

Dear Ian & Ali,

Although too short, our stay at High Beeches was perfect. The room was beautiful and clean, breakfast was lovely, and both of you are so nice! We will definitely stay with you if we come to Bath again, and we will recommend your B&B to our friends. Many thanks also for facilitating contact of my son with your friend who could offer a long stay during his master at the University.

Thank you again for your kindness.

Mario, Federico & Eleonora
