“Expensive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2012 via mobile

Most hotels in the Bath area seem to be quite expensive and Tasburgh is no exception. We stumbled across this hotel when driving past and had not pre booked We were offered the Wordsworth on the first floor at £140 a night (should have been £150 but because we booked two nights it was reduced). Sue made us feel very welcome and was happy to store our cycles in her garage. We were asked if we would like a cup of tea which we enjoyed on the terrace in the late afternoon sunshine with lovely views over the gardens. The tea was well presented with delicious chocolate brownies. Little did we know that the privilege would cost £4.15 each!
Our king sized bed was very comfortable but the room was too warm, and opening the windows made little difference except the traffic noise was enhanced. Sue happily supplied us with a small fan which did help. The bathroom was very small and a bit tired with floor covering that had seen better days and the ceiling paper needed attention. The extractor fan was very dusty with cobwebs.
Felt too much attention was paid to teddy bears, cushions and fancy headboards instead of more practical issues like a clock!
The free WiFi was excellent and worked
well in the room and throughout the hotel.
The continental breakfast was fine with a tasty home made granola muesli. A cooked breakfast would have cost extra which came as a surprise and a dissapointment after paying £140 a night. The staff were all pleasant and helpful and nothing seemed too much trouble. The hotel was mainly quiet but noise from the room above could be a problem as would young children.
Overall the hotel is in a good location but just too expensive to entice me back.

Thank you both for having written this review and I am glad that you were generally happy with your stay. You may be surprised to learn that we are most grateful for your comments even if they are negative ones. I'm afraid that things occasionally get overlooked and I am grateful that you mentioned the dust in the ventilator which, of course, has been cleaned immediately. I have had the bathroom flooring replaced and with regard to your comments about noise from the room above, I take it that you meant footsteps? All the floors above bedrooms have been lined with noise reducing plywood and extra thick 5 star quality underlay which has now eliminated any sounds from above all the rooms. On the point about clocks in rooms, you may not have noticed that the telephone displays the time, however, I can understand having a more obvious facia would be preferable. As result of your comments, I have purchased some lovely clocks to hang on walls. Such a good idea! We really appreciate comments from our quests , like yourselves, but if there is anything wrong we would ask that it is brought to our attention at the time of your stay. That way we can deal with it immediately. Thank you once again.

During our trip to Bath, we stayed at the Tasburgh House. The staff were very friendly and attentive, and ensured that we had everything that we needed. We were surprised by the space and luxury of the rooms as each was named after different poets and the rooms were decorated to the highest standards. The garden was breathtaking and lead to a canal walk into the centre of Bath. This hotel had a very great location, as you could easily walk into Bath City Centre and were not too far from other ammenities. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to experience everything that Bath has to offer, in luxury accomodation.

Room Tip: It is better to be on the first floor rather than the second as to get to the second floor there is...

After seeing Tasburgh on the Hotel Inspector we finally got round to staying and we weren't disappointed. We were instantly made to feel welcome and given a tour of the public areas before being shown to our room. The free room upgrade was most welcome. One thing we hadn't expected was the beautiful gardens and grounds which in the summer sunshine looked amazing.

Everything in Tasburgh was clean and well kept. We had breakfast in the conservatory, we especially liked the machine to squeeze your own orange juice. We didn't have a cooked breakfast as it was so warm but it looked very tempting and we will be trying this on our next visit.

We left the car in the car park and walked in to Bath which was an experience in itself as you can walk through the grounds down to the canal and then along the towpath, through the park and you are in the centre.

Sue and the team are excellent hosts and we were made to feel very welcome. We can't wait to come back and stay.

I have been lucky enough to stay at this hotel on a number of occasions over the years and I don't think I would want to stay anywhere else in Bath. Susan is so warm and welcoming and nothing is too much trouble for her. It's only a 20 minute walk into the centre of Bath and it's lovely to stay outside of the City Centre and enjoy the peaceful surroundings. I stayed in Austen which is a twin room. Feels very cosy. It has a shower and a bath and lovely toiletries. Now I stayed in this room, I want to stay in it each time. The breakfasts are very good - if you have the Continental it will set you up well for the day, but the Full English is exceptionally good.
I think The Tasburgh is the perfect place to stay in Bath.

We were a family of three, traveling in the UK culminating in a three night stop over in Bath. We booked two rooms, one double and one single. The property is of Victorian vintage - with the most amazing gardens and views one could hope for; even in the awful weather that kept us company in England in early July 2012. The room we stayed in took our breath away when Sue opened the door. Its fitted to the smallest detail and aesthetically quite beautiful. The room was very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was great - while I had the continental; my wife was pleased with the cooked breakfast she ordered. Due to the weather some of our touring plans were cancelled and we spent extra time back in the very comfortable surroundings of the house taking advantage of the fact that Tasburg house has a license. Sue is a very classy lady, who is assisted by a team of young people who know their role and fulfill it well. What I particularly appreciated what the attention to detail - the small things, e.g. all the staff wore soft footwear - so one didn't have the noise of people walking. The property is far enough outside Bath to be very quiet but close enough to walk in; Sue's knowledge of her community is also excellent.

We had a very warm welcome from Sue, who was such a perfect hostess and her staff were a credit to her. The house was beautiful and exactly as described on the internet full of charm, character and the presentation was immaculate. The views over the garden and Bath were incredible and Sue's knowledge and advise of the area was very well received by us. Breakfast was amazing and all very fresh and again very well presented. We would love to return on our next visit to the UK. Definitely recommend. Thanks Sue for everything!!!
