“Wonderful place to rest and relax”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2013

We stayed at the Devonshire after a day in Bath...it was very cozy and welcoming, but I was surprised by how big the room was and the updated bathroom (for our family of 4). Chris was a very welcoming host and helped us find a wonderful place for dinner....plus he served a delicious breakfast. The B&B is very convenient to downtown Bath. Overall a wonderful experience.

My friends and I really enjoyed our weekend stay at the Devonshire House.
The rooms were clean and quite spacious, the en-suite bathrooms were clean & well equipped.
The owners were friendly & welcoming and also very helpful when it came to advising on local attractions.
The B&B is located a short drive from the city centre & is easy to get to, plus there's no problem with on-street parking.
Overall, we liked everything about the B&B, including the continental breakfast which was tasty & filling.
I'd recommend Devonshire House B&B to anyone visiting Bath and I'm hoping to be able to visit again.

We have just returned from a two night stay at Devonshire House, and we only have great things to say about it. The owners were so friendly and eager to please. We had booked spa vouchers to use at the spa in the city centre, which were waiting for us along with a bottle of wine, which was a really lovely touch. They really had thought of everything, even down to instructions on how to get to and from town to take with you so you could find your way back. The walk into the centre was slightly longer than expected (20 minutes), but it was worth it because it was a lovely place to go back to after a long day of sight seeing. The continental breakfast was really yummy and there were even homemade muffins. I can't recommend Devonshire House enough, and will go back if we ever visit Bath again.

We had a lovely stay for the night and breakfast in the morning.
The only bad comment I can make is about the bed, it was way too soft.
Everything else was perfect though. We really felt at home, the room was very clean, and perfect size.

I had a great time at this B&B, Good breakfast, friendly owners, bit of a walk to Bath city centre but othet than that recommend it. There was a handbook which lots of information on the surrounding area, a nice pub next door and the owner gave us advice on what to do in the area.

I love this place! I have stayed here twice now, and the proprietors work hard to make sure your stay is fantastic. The room was lovely and clean. There was excellent free wifi, a nice tv with lots of channels,walking distance to historic Bath, and a free discount card for attractions and shopping. The breakfast is good and plentiful, with something for every diet. The icing on the cake is the welcome sherry provided in the lounge each evening. Just across the road is the Devonshire Arms which does lovely food in a comfy pub atmosphere. This is THE best place to stay in Bath!!
