Can this place be as good as others have said? Well to be honest yes. We (I, wife, and our 12 yr old son and 77 yr old mum) stayed in room 3 1st floor (Jacuzzi queen dble) and room 7 ground floor (twin with shower) on Sun august 5th. Henry and Claire the onsite managers were courteous, friendly, willing to assist from the moment we picked up the phone to book. We rang back to enquire re possible rooms and Henry had remembered who we were, 'off course sir I would not consider putting your 77 yr old mother in any room other that the ground floor”. Impressed already. When we arrived at 12 noon, we were greeted by name, and offered coffee/tea, served prompty, with a smile, silver service, in the comfy lounge, before being offered a tour of the hotel (16-17 rooms), and maps of Bath plus a series of recommended restaurants, where to park, what buses to catch, a local value taxi service and then cases whisked off until the rooms were ready. “We pride our selves in listening to the reports our guests give us of the local restaurants so can assure you our recommendations are accurate". When we returned at 6pm after an afternoon of shopping and walking/cycling we were very impressed to find our luggage neatly arranged in our respective rooms, bright, truly ever so clean, my wife exclaiming wow, its nearly as good as home, air-conditioned and very quiet, spacious rooms. Lovely bedding, sheets, cushions , coffee/tea making facilities, small LCD TV/ wireless internet for those of us who have to check the Stock market and e mails and an atmosphere of real effort to please. They even have a laptop with free broadband for those without their own equipment and arrange taxi's to suite those who did want to spend the 5-10minutes walk to central bath. Even though the hotel was full we barely saw or heard any of the other guests. This hotel is very quiet in the evenings and we slept very very well well, helped by a wonderful meal at Martini Italian restaurant, George street , one of several recommended by Henry. Taxi was less than 4 pounds each way before tip. We had a walk for an hour after the meal and then rang the taxi at 10pm who came and picked us up where ever we were. Breakfast was sumptuous, plentiful and served in a friendly though not overcrowded room, quality crockery and linen, seemingly limitless choices, hot food was hot, haddock, wonderful scrambled egg, full cooked English breakfast, numerous sorts of teas, even dare I say chilled cava for those who like to be indulged. This breakfast is 95% of the way more expensive Royal crescent offering. Check out was as the check in ,hassle free, time for some chit chat and please come back to visit us. . For us, we can’t think of any nicer to place to stay and off peak you could get a discount for 2 or more nights. Honestly this is in the best B+B we've had so far. Forget the big hotels, who needs a pool onsite. Spend some of your savings you achieve by staying here on a 20 pound bath spa treat. Henry and Claire, and team, well done, you should be proud. Hope the boss pays you what you all deserve
