I have just returned from another very enjoyable stay at Devonshire House Hotel. The owners, Louise and Chris were away, but I was well looked after by Judith and Gerry. As always, the rooms were clean, the service friendly, and the breakfast was very good. I try to make my reviews helpful and include any drawbacks with the places I stay. I can think of only three, limited parking, distance from the centre of the City, and, being a small Guest House, it does not proved meals other than breakfast. On the first point, as I am not a driver, I am not worried, on the second, the hotel is about a mile from the centre of the city, and the walk from Bath is up a fairly steep hill. However, I did not find this a problem, and the walk took me about 15 minutes. Just remember, I am not a fit young athlete, but a 67 year old with early signs of osteo arthritis in my knees! If, however, you are unable or unwilling to walk, there are a number of buses which stop at or near to the hotel.
On the third point, there is a very good pub next to the hotel, the Devonshire Arms, which, as well as providing a good range of drinks, serve an excellent choice of meals from Tuesdays to Sundays.
I am pleased the vast number of reviews are positive, and these opinions are backed up by the comments in the Visitors' Book, and from discussions I have had with fellow guests.
Finally, I should mention that Louise and Chris, as well as Judith and Gerry are local people who have a good knowledge of the area, and are always pleased to provide help and advice.
I look forward to my next visit.
