“beautiful, relaxing place to stay in a perfect location”
Reviewed 21 June 2009

This is a beautiful house from the Georgian period that has been restored and offers a wonderful b&b service to visitors to Bath. The owners are extremely friendly, welcoming and professional, and breakfast in the morning is tailored to each guests needs. The rooms are fairly large, beautifully presented with thoughtful touches, and the room we stayed in was en-suite. The location is ideal for anyone hoping to explore Bath - it is a ten minute stroll to the historic centre of Bath, along the lovely Great Pulteney St. Bathwick Gardens itself is located on a peaceful street so that you escape a little when you return in the evening.
Other reviews that I had read before going there said that guests had to leave between 10 and 6, but I guess they have changed their approach since we were given a front door key and could come and go as we pleased.
I would really recommend this place as a great place to stay for a trip to Bath.

We've stayed here twice and thoroughly enjoyed our visits. We were warmly welcomed by our hosts. We enjoyed being in a beautifully decorated Regency Bath house. Accommodation was very comfortable at the top of the house (no distraction of tv) with excellent ensuite shower. We enjoyed being able to walk everywhere from the house and a delicious and filling breakfast set us up for the day. It was like being in a home rather than a b&b.

This is a stunning house with very elegant ,beautiful rooms and yet the warm welcome made one feel at home. Breakfasts were a leisurely affair with the hosts taking their time to chat with us which really increased the feel of being a house guest, we almost felt as though we could have chatted all morning, but the sites of Bath were calling.
Bath is a great city to visit - there are so many interesting historical buildings to see, great places in which to eat, and as for shopping!
So the combination of this lovely bed and breakfast and Bath make for a great time away. A place not to be missed!

Bathwick Gardens is a lovely B&B, the room we were in was very comfortable and the bathroom was very clean, the house in general was just lovely, other than the fact that it was a bit cold.

However, everything went down hill on the first morning when after breakfast at around 10 ish ( breakfast was nice) we went back to our room to relax a bit before heading out when I heard someone banging in the door and shout something like "we are ready to leave!" I was quiet astonished as to why one of the guests would do that so I ignored it. By that point I had only met 2 ladies running the B&B.
After another 15 minutes or so there was another bang, by this time I had a towel on and was just about to get into the shower , I opened to door to see a gentleman there telling me that he and his wife are ready to leave and that we should have been out of the house by 11 am! I thought to myself this is very strange, and told him we just need to have a shower and we will be out.
To cut a long story and several bangs on the door short we were told that we had to be out of the house at 11am not to return until 6pm! We were told that once the owners left the house all the guests had to leave not to return until they got back!
After deliberating on the situation my partner and I decided to quit the B&B because we came to Bath to relax which for us meant going out to discover the place at our own pace and leisure with the option of returning to our room as and when we pleased hence why we chose a place that was close to the city centre. And for the price we paid for it as well it was just unacceptable to be treated in this way!
When we advised the couple (I later found out that the man banging the door was the lady's husband) we were told that this is a "B&B not a hotel" so we should expect to have breakfast and a bed and leave for the day! I advised that this was the first time I had ever experienced such treatment at a B&B and that all places I had been to provided me with a key so that I could come and go as I pleased. The lady told me this was on their website; I had browsed their website and had seen nothing of the sort – this sort of information should be in red with flashing lights!
In the end we went to a hotel which was not too far from the B&B, was cheaper, just as nice, and we were even allowed to check out late at 1pm on Sunday afternoon! :o)

The building is beautiful and well located. Our bedroom was right at the top (lots of stairs) and was very sweet- and used in the film Persuasion! It is styled beautifully and the rooms are like staying in Austens time. There is no tv, though there are books about Bath and a radio. The bathroom was wonderful with the most amazing power shower ever. I could have stayed in it forever! However, the bed was rock hard and we did not sleep very well.

The hosts were lovely, though we had not realised on booking that it is not really a B&B, it is a private home where people live, but they have 3 rooms at the top of the house they use for guests. Because of this the times you can come and go have to be pre-arranged and the hostess called us on both days of our stay to check when we would be returning.

The bedrooms also cannot be locked from outside, I imagine because it is someones private home, but again we found this a little unusual.

The breakfasts were lovely- very filling- and we were given helpful advice about where and when to visit.

If you want to feel like a house guest this is perfect. They are friendly and helpful and it is beautifully done. If you want to book a room in Bath and do as you wish by yourselves then I would choose somewhere else.

My fianc'e & i stayed at the beautiful Bathwick Gardens for 2 nights and well what can i say it was perfect! The house was an amazing restored period home with high ceilings, sash windows, stone staircases & a lovely feel about it. Our room was located right at the very top & we were told by our host that the room we were in was where they filmed part of the Jane Austen film!. The hostesses were welcoming & helpful. The house was very clean, cleaner then some 5* hotels i have stayed in!! The location just right.
We will definately be going back.

Set only a 5 min walk from the centre of Bath this imposing Georgian Townhouse is equally impressive on the inside with tasteful period decoration, high ceilings, stone staircases and large sash windows. Mechthild was welcoming and hospitable. Our immaculate room was at the back of the house and overlooked the garden. It was large, bright, airy and quiet with a good ensuite bathroom. Breakfast was served in a small conservatory next to the kitchen and was as delicious as it was extensive. Great value. We will be going back again.
