What a beautiful B&B! This was my favorite room we had on our entire 1 month European trip.
The hotel is very quaint and nicely decorated. We arrived and settled into our room to Mozart music from the CD player and hot tea! The room is very romantic and spacious with a large bathroom. We had a corner room with great views over the polo field towards the main part of town. We were lucky to find this place after making a last minute change to our plans a few weeks before flying to Europe. The double room was priced competitively with other hotels and B&Bs in the area. Breakfast was a perfect and filling full English. More then enough to hold you over for most of the day.
We were in town to go on a Cotswalds tour, the next morning and the Ayrlington was perfectly located within walking distance of the train station and main plaza. Although it is on the other side of the river from all the tourists sights and restaurants, it was nice to be able to walk across the bridges and view all the wonderful scenery on the way back to the B&B.
Unfortunately all the stores close in Bath at 5pm so it gets quite dull at night. We just grabbed takeout and headed back to the room to relax after doing the Mayor's walking tour of bath and having tramped up and down London for the previous 3 days.
We had a great although short one night stay. don't pay attention to the complaints about the Ayrlington. No it is not a 5 star hotel like some people seem to think. How could it be when there is no pool, restaurant or spa? What it is is a very beautiful quaint B&B. I could easily have enjoyed many more nights here! Too bad we just didn't have enough time in our schedule.
