Reviewed 21 April 2014

Very nice view at the back, but disappointed as it is basically an expensive bed and breakfast. I also had a family emergency I had to get back for but still got charged for an unused room. So all in all I am disappointed with the lack of customer service. I'm sure there are cheaper bed and breakfast accomodations.

We all loved our stay at the tasburgh house, sue and all the staff were lovely and so polite. It had a lovely feel to the hotel, it was clean, beautifully decorated and had everything you would like and more! Just a 15 minute walk down a lovely foot path along the canal to get into bath Centre. Great restaurants and pubs e.g the hare and the hound was lovely with an amazing view and the George was great too. Overall a great place. Highly recommend it.

We stayed in Tasburgh House for two nights, arriving April 4, departing April 6. We loved the hotel, and found the welcome from Sue Keeling the owner to be warm and genuine. The room was as pictured , we had a 9yr old daughter with us, so we had a double and single - the beds were really comfortable and we had two very peaceful nights sleep. Ensuite was lovely, terrific shower, very refreshing and lots of towels to hand. We had continental breakfast one morning and cooked the second morning- and enjoyed both . The fresh fruit, cold meats, cereals and cheeses were very very 'moreish' as was the cooked breakfast the second morning. Great coffee as well. We loved the gardens and the views over Bath from the back of the house- you can walk down to the river and along the bank- very peaceful and relaxing after a long motor way drive. Sue was delightful in dealing with any queries about restaurants and taxis. We had a late meal on Friday night in the St George which was a short walk (downhill) from Tasburgh and her name got us a table and we were delighted. Would definitely recommend Tasburgh to anyone looking to stay in Bath- it is more relaxing and you end up finding out a bit more about Bath from someone who lives there and knows the restaurants and shops and how to get around- that's the type of valuable information that you won't get in a chain hotel. Will be back later this year for sure

Room Tip: Ask Sue first !

As has been mentioned before the owner tries really hard and is always around but this is not a hotel,it's a b&b and you do feel you are staying in someones home. The price does not reflect this.
We paid £160 a night for a tiny room where there was hardly room to pass each other if we were both out of bed. The bed was a small double and rose in the middle so we both felt in danger of falling out.
The house was covered in scaffolding back and front which we weren't warned about, the telly had 2 channels and the bathroom window was cracked.
The "hotel" shares it's car park with the dental practice in the outbuilding in the front garden.
If you do stay you should budget for taxi's as it may be a 20 minute walk downhill into Bath itself but it is a steep climb back.

Susan K, Owner at Tasburgh House, responded to this reviewResponded 11 April 2014

We are so dismayed to read your review especially as we had tried to make your Birthday a special one. Bearing in mind that you requested this particular room and paid £140.00 per night, not £160.00, in spite of being warned that it had a double bed rather than a King or Superking which all the others have, which are. indeed, £160.00 per night. All the TV's have multi channels and of course none have only 2 so had there been a problem of any kind, we make it clear on arrival that we want to be the first to hear . We can only resolve a problem if we are told about it. On the rare occasions when problems arise we make a point of addressing them immediately. You didn't mention this at any time during your stay. We had notified all our incoming guests of the scaffolding due to roof damage caused during the recent floods and high winds which was so regrettable but nevertheless has to be repaired. I think you will agree that none of it obstructed the lovely views from the windows. We are just so very sorry that you found it necessary to complain in this manner rather than giving us the opportunity to make your stay more enjoyable.Susan K, Proprietor

What a gem! This hotel has all the qualities that discerning travellers look for. Beautifully decorated and furnished in character with it's age, immaculately clean, charming breakfast rooms all laid out with lovely white table cloths, sensitive background music whilst you eat and the bedroom we had was fabulous overlooking the stunning back garden leading down to the Avon and Kennet canal. The breakfasts were amazing and Sue and Delila were so helpful and went the extra mile.
A few days in Bath for my husband's birthday,staying in such surroundings, being treated to a glass of bubbly on arrival and with all the extra touches .....
What more can I say but thank you Sue and we would have no hesitation in recommending Tasburgh House.
