Trying to book a hotel in Bath for the Easter weekend is a nightmare. There is such high demand that local hotel owners can impose stupid conditions such as "only-three-nights" or "no-arrivals-on-Saturdays" policies. Annabelle's was completely different. It was very easy to book the rooms for the number of nights we wanted, and for a very reasonable price (72.5 pounds per night per room for a double en-suite) compared to other guest houses in Bath at the peak of the season.
The rooms were comfortable and cosy, the bathroom was modern and super clean. One of the rooms, number 1 on the ground floor, was noisy on Saturday night, but we had been warned before booking, and had accepted a 5 pound discount for the inconvenience. The other room had no noise problem at all.
The breakfast in the morning was an all you can eat buffet with good and simple ingredients (orange juice is from concentrate and coffee is not great though, you would expect better from Italians!). But only on Sunday morning was there a full English breakfast buffet (with bacon and sausages), which was really worth it.
The owners are lovely and helpful people. Natacha speaks English, French and Italian. She did make a mistake with our reservation, but quickly recognized she was wrong, apologized profusely and gave us the rooms we had booked. She also gave us tickets to the American museum in Bath to apologize.
All in all, difficult to find a better value guest house. If you want high luxury, there are plenty of other places in Bath, but be ready to pay four times the price, for probably surly service and not much more. Location was absolutely ideal, close to the station but not too much, and near all the main sights in Bath.
