Reviewed 6 August 2014

We recently stayed for 2 nights at Tasburgh House and we had a wonderful time. The house is in an elevated position above the Kennet and Avon canal just outside Bath city centre. We had the George Elliot room which was extremely comfortable and decorated in the French style. The gardens are extensive (17 acres) with a fabulous terrace with magnificent views. We were fortunate that the weather was hot and sunny and sitting on the terrace enjoying a drink as the sun went down was a real highlight. Sue and her staff were utterly charming and nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast was continental but more than adequate and a cooked breakfast was available for a small extra cost. It is a very pleasant 20 minute walk into Bath through the gardens along the canal tow path and we didn't need to use the car during our stay. If returning after dark we would recommend a taxi (about £7) as the tow path is dark. We would definitely recommend Tasburgh House if you are looking for a bit of luxury and special treatment. You will. It be disappointed.

Recently stayed at Tasburgh House where Sue Keeling the charming owner made us feel very much at home. There is a beautiful view overlooking the gardens and down into Bath. It is very peaceful, and quite lovely. The Hotel breakfast was divine, served al fresco (depending on weather.) The staff are very helpful.

We stayed at the Hotel on 3rd and 4th August, in the Thomas Hardy room which has a beautiful view overlooking the Hotels wonderful gardens. You can stroll down the garden to a gate which leads to a path by the Kennet canal and walk into Bath town centre.

The rooms are really well thought through individually in a boutique kind of style, Sue and her team are genuinely friendly and helpful. We sat in the lovely lounge and I drank a couple of glasses of the finest cabernet sauvignon (from New Zealand I think) that I've ever had.

Breakfast is a really nice continental style with all the usual things or a massive full English as an extra.

I can vouch for this place.

We stayed at the B&B for two nights, an amazing stop! Beautiful view at Bath and an great walk to town from the garden along side the river. We stayed in the Dylan Thomas room which was at a perfect location at the hotel.

Our children paid for our visit to this hotel as an Anniversary Gift. We found the staff very helpful and very pleasant, Sue the owner/manager is lovely, friendly and very hard working. We did find our room rather small, but it was clean, as was the bathroom felt very homely. The only think I would say looking at the prices it should have breakfast included in the price.

Ok it's expensive and you have to pay extra for a full English, but you get a fantastic host (Sue) whose enthusiasm and commitment rubs off on her staff, a fabulous property with comfortable rooms, superb gardens and terrace. The breakfast on the terrace/conservatory in the early morning sun overlooking Bath was gorgeous and the freshly cooked breakfast superb and worth the extra cost. Lovely walk (or cheap taxi) into Bath centre. Try it it's Class!!

This is a very pleasant place to stay....but...it is fairly highly priced for a B & B and yet breakfast and in fact any hot food, is priced as a "supplement"...a supplement of almost £10.00 for an English breakfast is hardly a supplement...your other reviewers are correct in saying that it is a friendly and welcoming place, with attention to detail in the public rooms, and a lovely outlook and garden/terrace area...but the rooms which we were told were superior, whilst being pleasant enough, were certainly not superior. I did write to Sue after our stay, but she hasn't yet responded (it was May so I suspect she isn't going to do so now)...we didn't come away thinking it was lovely, just OK. There was a certain meaness - i.e., no replacement soap, etc., for the second night of our stay...this makes the stay a little depressing and a high price for OK.

Room Tip: Probably more quiet at the back..and perhaps a nicer view.
