“Absolutely Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2006

We've Just arrived home today after staying at Oldfieds. We've always wanted to go to Bath and did so for my wife's birthday and also to coincide with the Simply Red concert at the Rec in the centre of Bath - just a 15 minute stroll away. Well located and with great views over the city on the walk down the hill. We stayed in room 16 - Four poster bed and jacuzzi bath. This was the first time we had ever stayed in a guest house - we usually stay in hotels.The hosts really made us feel really welcome, gave us some good tips of where to eat (Fishworks - yummy), where to go and how to get there and have definately changed our views on guesthouses - a much more personal service than hotels. My wife is a bit of a fussy so and so but found this place fautless - the first time ever!! We booked early and could see why - this place was fully booked and was popular with many foreign visitors. We would definately stay here again.

Once again Oldfield’s lives up to my expectation. I love the city of Bath and I am so happy to have found a wonderful B&B to enjoy during our visits. The staff is absolutely wonderful. They were always there to answer questions, give recommendations on restaurants and day trips out and around Bath. Both Stella and Sean are professional, caring and go the extra mile to make sure your stay at Oldfield’s is the best it could possibly be.

They have brochures and books in a beautiful sitting room. The sitting room has a fireplace and a computer. The computer is available for use and is free. This was very convenient. The breakfast room is very classy but warm and friendly. They offer a very good selection for breakfast. You have your choice of many cereals, yogurt, fruit bowl, many other fruits, orange juice, as well as other fresh fruit juices and champagne. They bring you coffee or tea and toast if desired and than you can order a warm meal from their menu. They are very flexible and do everything they can to meet your needs. Sean does the cooking and he is a great chef.

As for the room, like most European B&B's, I wish the room was bigger but the room was nicely decorated and very well maintained. We were in room number 12 it was very clean with a flat screen TV. In the office they have DVD's you can borrow. The window had two sets of glass so you did not have any noise coming in. But the window was also very easy to open. The bathroom we had in our room only had a shower, no tub, but there was great water pressure and the shower and bathroom were very clean. They had Molten and Brown products in the bathroom for guests to use. They also put out bottles of water on the bed stands free for guests.

Oldfield’s does a very good job of taking care of guests needs and letting one vacation in a nice and comfortable atmosphere. I would definitely recommend this B&B.

If you are in Bath with a car I would definitely recommend a day trip to Stratford (birthplace of Shakespeare.) It is a cute city with theatre (Royal Shakespeare Company), shopping, restaurants and friendly locals. For a smoke-free dinning enjoyment we recommend, Strada (Italian) and “Pizza Express,” they are a chain but have great food, the pizza dough balls and garlic butter are fabulous, as well as the Chocolate Glory dessert!!

Oldfields is a B&B that has their act together, a beautiful Victorian home at the top of the hill over looking Bath, the rooms are clean and modern, plasma TV's, and modern bath rooms. As a single traveller I have come to excpect my room to be less than desireable in most cases. I was in for a pleasant surprise with Oldfileds. They prepared a very nice breakfast with linens and the host and hostess went out of their way to make sure you were comfortable. The only draw back is the trip up the hill to the place, for older travelers I would suggest a taxi going to Oldfields but going into town it is all down hill.

Oldfields is a charming B&B with clean, spacious, tasteful rooms in a fabulous location. The service was wonderful, the staff is happy to book tours and recommend restaurants, and the breakfast was delicious. Additional bonuses included free internet access and parking. Overall, we had a wonderful experience and would definitely go back.

Great restaurants to try in Bath: Sally Lunn's (town center) and Il Tocco d'Italia (located on the river)

My girlfriend and I stayed in the Oldfield for the night and had a fantastic stay. We were greeted with a very friendly welcome by the young lady in charge, who sat down with us and gave us some recommendations for dinner etc before showing us to our room. The room was quite small but very clean and beautifully decorated, including a flat screen tv and complimentary Molton Brown toiletries. A feature of this hotel is the small personal touches throughout which make such a difference. The staff at the hotel were friendly, charming and attentive without being intrusive. Breakfast was good, with a fabulous choice of cooked breakfasts or fresh fruit and even champagne if you are brave enough ! My only reservation would be that the time of breakfast (ends at 9:30) and checkout (10:30) are too early, particularly if you're staying for the weekend. These minor points didn't ruin a great stay though and we'll definitely be back for a longer visit soon !!

We stayed at the Oldfields hotel over Easter weekend and thought it was a great place to stay in Bath for a very reasonable price. It's slightly off the beaten track with about a 10 minute walk into town, but that didn't detract from a very enjoyable weekend.
The room was at the top of the house, spotlessly clean and although small, very well appointed and stylish.
Special mention must go to the delightful breakfasts - a full selection of choices from full english to smoked salmon and scrambled eggs, proper jam from normal size jars, fresh juices, proper fruit salad and help yourself to fizz as well!
The whole hotel is very tastefully decorated and comfortable with special little touches like mini chocolate eggs (it was easter). The staff were all very pleasent and helpful with restaurant suggestions and directions.
For less than £100 per room per night, we thought it was a bargain and would stay again.
