Good location. However, very disappointing experience! Dark, depressing and shabby was the first impression. Alarm bells rang on noticing a scribbled note of mobile contact number stuck to front door, on the strong, strange smell of airfreshner, on immediate payment before seeing room! Nothing when booking prepared us for the two flights of stairs to the attic! Dark poorly lit (lights don't work during day time). Number nine room was cramped and should never be used as a twin bed double. Cheap furniture and fittings. Wardrobe was two shelves and 4 hangers which couldn't easily be reached because of the coffee table in front of it. My friend and I could not move around at the same time. No covering on the small window, which we couldn't reach because of a bed and deep window sill. My friend is under 5ft tall, and repeatedly banged her head on the sloping ceiling. Poor connection on kettle, took ages to make horrible tea!. Cheap stained and dark coloured nylon bedcover. towels not changed in four days. Cups not washed or changed on second day. Shower head holder broken and doesn't hold when showering. Three flights of stairs to find dining room, which resembles a greasy cafe. Poor quality all-round, after which I did'nt bother with breakfast. Spent twelve hours a day out in Bath to avoid going back to digs! Bath is a lovely place and there is no need to experience a nineteen seventies style "Boarding House". Do not give in, keep looking.
