“Nice - but very expensive”
Reviewed 28 March 2007

I hate to be the one sour note in the universal praise for Oldfields, but while I thought the hotel was very nice, it is very expensive for what it is - which is basically a very high end B&B.

Yes, Bath is expensive but I've stayed in five star hotels pretty much everyone else in Europe for less than this, and they had more facilities.

Having said that, the room was very nice, the staff friendly and helpful, and the breakfasts were excellent. It's just the price I baulk at.

The Oldfields hotel is one of the new breed of premium B&Bs. Not a boutique hotel, just a high quality B&B, featuring:
Wifi access
Superior breakfast with good quality ingredients
Flat panel TV
King size bed
Molton Brown toiletries

Good points:
Excellent breakfast
Huge four poster bed
Very quiet at night

Bad points:
15 minute uphill walk from the town centre
Not cheap

I enjoyed my stay at the Oldfields Hotel. It's not cheap for a B&B, but you can see where the money has been spent, and I'd recommend it strongly.

Thanx to all for a great stay at Oldfields Hotel. We could find no fault and would not hesitate to recommend this friendly and convenient B & B to all. The ambiance of Oldfields made our stay in Bath a memorable one and we hope to return again soon.

The thoughtfulness was perfect throughout. Henry and Claire took every care of us, from recommending and booking restaurants, through champagne cooling to thermae spa package. We felt thoroughly pampered. Nothing was too much trouble for them. The room was very comfortable with lots of lovely detail (the hairdryer socket at waist level just outside the en suite shower room, so the mirror could be used) (Molton Brown products). The breakfast was HUGE and delicious - fresh fruit salad and Bucks Fizz - always a good start. I would not think of going anywhere else in Bath.

I chose this hotel as a result of the reviews on this website, and I wasn't in any way disappointed. The owners couldn't do enough for you and the standard of the rooms is exemplary. The showers were the best I have ever had in a hotel room and the level of cleanliness has to be seen to be appreciated.

A fantastic, relaxing weekend away which I thoroughly enjoyed.

Following the other encouraging reviews on TA, we spent our 1st wedding anniversary at Oldfields and were not disappointed.

From the moment we arrived the service and staff were excellent. Would happily return and recommend it to others.
