My husband and I stayed here for two nights in February 2014. Location is quite good (although you have to be fairly fit to manage the steep incline from Bath to the Guest House) - and about a 15 minute walk into town. Guest House, we weren't as impressed with. In dire need of modernisation! Room extremely small (wasn't able to open the chest of drawers fully as it was up against the wardrobe) and furnishings very old fashioned. Ensuite in desperate need of refurbishment. Shower facility inadequate - very poor flow and shower head very grubby. Ensuite also very cold as there was no radiator in the bathroom - a heated towel rail wouldn't have gone amiss!! Breakfast a little better and I enjoyed the fresh fruit salad and a good selection of food on offer. Having said this, I asked for a croissant on the Sunday and this was dry and still frozen in the middle and the full English breakfast was quite good on the Saturday morning but on the Sunday morning was swimming in grease and unappetising. The proprietor was quite welcoming but in general we feel that for the price we had paid (£85 per night) we would have expected something a bit better (think we will stick to a travel lodge next time as it would have been cheaper and the room and facilities better!!)
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Highways House, built in 1874, is a 5 room (all en suite) guest house. We are ten minutes walk into the city centre (Roman Baths, Bath Abbey, etc) and the return journey is a little uphill towards the end. We are on a main bus & cab route, and well away from the city centre's noisy pubs and clubs that are so busy at weekends. We pride ourselves on our cleanliness and friendliness. ... more less
