“Excellent choice for a stay in Bath”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 October 2013

This is a lovely guesthouse in central Bath. Our King Sized room was spacious, clean and well presented with boutique decor. The breakfasts are amazing, they are definitely the "foodies" they proclaim to be on their website. It is a short five minute stroll to the town centre, but we enjoyed the walk to walk off the copious food we ate!! Great eateries close-by, would recommend the tapas restaurant "Madrid" off Queens square. We would definately stay here again if returning to beautiful Bath, and rated it so highly we plan to stay in the sister hotel in Edinburgh when we visit there next year.

While planning our trip to England and Ireland we found good reviews for this B&B close to the heart of the City of Bath in England. The reviews were on the mark - we stayed 4 nights at this B&B and were very happy with our accommodations. The staff was friendly and made sure that all of our needs were taken care of and the daily breakfast was as good as we found while on our 3+ vacation that took us to several locations in England and Ireland. We have nothing but good things to say about the Brooks Guesthouse.

We had a great weekend in Bath and stayed in Brooks Guesthouse. The Guesthouse was very welcoming, great staff, great breakfast, great location and great information. The only downside I would say is that our double bedroom was not very big but this wouldn't stop us from staying here again. Highly recommend.

Room Tip: We had a room on the first floor and it was a bit on the small side but it was a very quiet room.

My husband and I recently stayed at this little hotel in Bath. I appreciate that the guy at the front desk (Ben, I think?) mailed to me the jacket that I had left in the room closet. He was so nice about it; looked up another hotel address where I was going to stay down the road; he figured out how to get it there on time. Now, that's service. Plus, Brooks was a cozy and clean place, close to a fun pub with great food.

we went to Bath for the Jane Austen Festival-enjoyed our 3night stay, room 18 top of the house and at the back (no beautiful views of Bath) was lovely-the beds very comfortable, and were cleaned and fresh towels changed every morning,
we would have liked to have more wardrobe space ,
en-suite clean and a good size-although I think the toilet roll was placed in an unusual place.
staff very friendly and helpful- ordering taxis, carrying our suitcases, giving information about Bath,
Do not take an umbrella with you- the guesthouse has large umbrellas in the to reception area to lend to guests .
Brooks breakfast- brilliant value, and excellent chose ,you can watch your breakfast been prepared through the large glass partition,
guest parlour- comfortable ,daily newspapers to read .

The room share was for three as I was on a tour. We were given one key even though I explained we were not friends or relatives and would be going out independently of each other so needed one each. The answer I was given was that it was risk management to give only one key as loss of a key meant door locks, including the front door would need to be changed. There are no telephones in the room. The reason I was given is that guests are expected to have mobile phones. This meant I had to walk from the top floor, leaving the door unlocked and the contents insecure, while I went downstairs and asked the desk attendant to come and lock the room. To get in, I had to wait for a staff member to be available to let me into the room. On one occasion, when we went to the room, it was already unlocked meaning the room contents had been insecure. I find it unsatisfactory that the hotel puts risk management of key loss above the security of the guest's property. I also find it unsatisfactory that there is no phone in the room. I further find it unsatisfactory that there is no lift so the luggage has to be dragged up flights of narrow, steep stairs. The room was very cramped. There was no view. On the plus side, beds are comfortable. Location is very good with a bus stop directly in front of the guesthouse. Staff are helpful but limited by protocols. Breakfast is very good. Based on all the facts though, I would look around before choosing this accommodation again if I were to travel to Bath.

Sorry you felt your property was not secure , we dont hand out multiple keys becuase that is more of a security risk if they are all lost on the street and strangers enter the buidling
If you are sharing with other people at our guesthouse we assume you know the people that you are sharing with, its unusal to share iwth strangers.
It might be worth you having a single room on the ground floor if you have trouble with stairs and sharing your room. We are happy to carry bags we do it daily.
Housekeepers need to open the doors to clean the rooms which is why your room was unlocked as it was being serviced .

Our building is listed which is why we don't have a lift this typical many Bath Townhoses & we say this on our website. 99% of our guests have mobile phones but we are available 12 hours per day to make phonecalls for you if you don't have one
We are glad you liked the bed and breakfast , that is what we set out to do bed and breakfast so happy you liked both of these elements thank you again for staying

Our family of four (incl. 2 younger children) stayed for two nights. Staff was courteous and very helpful. Breakfast was excellent and offered lots of options, even for a picky 3 yr old. The room was cramped for four people but was comfortable and in good condition. Being along the street (room 10 if I remember correctly) there was some traffic noise when we opened the windows at night but was't too bad. The king bed was very comfortable and the pull-outs for the kids were fine. Very good location, being close to the main sights in Bath. No restaurant options by the guesthouse but there are lots of options within a 10 minute walk. Also, there is an excellent kids park 5 minutes away, which really helps to let them burn off some energy.
