Oldfields House is an elegant Georgian house refurbished into a pleasant B & B. We arrived a little early than the usual check in time but our room was ready. We were instantly greeted with tea and biscuits which was a wonderful gesture having driven early from London. Karen was vey helpful in explaining to us what the main attractions were in Bath and telling us what we needed to know to start our adventures of Bath, having visited before in the '70s.
Oldfields house is a good 10 minute walk into town but a pleasant walk. Coming back at night it is all uphill but a good way to walk off dinner. There are buses and taxis that you can catch right to the door.
Our room was on the 2nd floor in the loft and it was well appointed with tea/coffee making facilities. The ensuite was a good size and the towels were brilliant. Just like home.
Breakfast is not for the faint hearted. It is incredibly substantial with everything you could possibly eat. We loved the starched tablecloths and napkins. So elegant and the breakfast staff were professional and extremely friendly.
The only problem was the wifi. When you are travelling for weeks at a time you need wifi. It only worked if you were near the reception. Other than that the stay at Oldfields house was memorable and it is highly recommended should you need accommodation in beautiful Bath.
