“An absolute must stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2012

Bath may have the Roman Baths but it also has Number 17. Wow, what a place to stay. We are staying in the 2 bedroom apartment on the ground floor, direct access to the lovely back garden. It has two very generous size bedrooms, a massive lounge room, a kitchen with every thing you could ask for and a very spacious bathroom. Best of all it has a washing machine, brilliant after a week on the road. This place is an absolute must stay and very well priced at £380 for two nights.

Room Tip: The two bedroom apartment is ideal for families. Board games include and a great selection of movies...

We had a beautiful room on the first floor with a splendid view if the city. The room was beautifully decorated and quite spacious, and the small kitchen was handy. The en suite bath was tiny, especially the sink which was mounted at child's height! We walked to all the downtown attractions and to and from the train station very easily. A very nice place.

Location of Number 17 is great it's a 5-10 min walk to the centre of Bath and is a beautiful stroll.
We had the Atrium Suite on the ground floor, We had read rewiews that previously indicated that it was a little bit noisy, but we found it to be very quiet, although we did stay on a Sunday night.
The room had character, beautifully decorated in Georgian style, although the en-suite bathroom was so tiny, and had we of been staying more than 1 night I think we would have found this to be a problem.
The fridge was stocked with croissants, butter, jam & milk for breakfast which was a nice touch, and the kitchen area was fully equipped should you want to stay in & dine.
The owner allowed us to park from 12:30 on the day of arrival and until 1:30 on the day of departure, which saved us a fortune on parking in Bath.
We thought overall that Number 17 was fantastic value for money, and we will definatley be returning very soon.

Accommodation is in the form of self contained apartments within an old Georgean house near to the centre of Bath. Poulteney Bridge and the City are a 10 minute walk, but a bus runs nearby for those not so energetic. The rooms were uniquely decorated in period style, with comfortable beds and furniture. The small kitchen area was useful, and included breakfast cereals, milk and coissants in the fridge. Only two down-sides; the shower room was tiny and a bit of a squeeze for most people, and the rooms on the front of the house suffered traffic noise early in the morning (rooms at the rear overlook the Abbey and Bath Rugby ground). Would recommend Number 17 despite these issues; it is quirky but more than adequate as a base to explore Bath.

Room Tip: Go for an apartment at the rear if you want to avoidn traffic noise and have a view of the Abbey.

This is the second time we have stayed at number 17 in two different rooms. Firstly the negatives, the on suites are small and I agree with other comments on this, if you are a big person this is not the place for you. Positives, great location within walking distance to the abbey and centre, park up your car and leave it. There is a iPhone docking pod, flat screen tv, Internet, ironing board and iron. Small kitchen area with complimentary tea and coffee, beautiful character rooms with comfy bed. The back rooms have a great view of the bath rugby and the abbey. There is also a beautiful garden with out door seating. £130 is a lot of money but not in Bath which is the second dearest place to London. Mark is friendly and helpful. On the day of leaving he let us leave our car until we left. I would recommend this place

Room Tip: Choose a room at the back with the view

After reading the previous reviews on TripAdvisor and the booking agency this sounded much more appealing than it actually was. Having booked a City View room, we were shown to room overlooking the car park and main road, no city view. A plus was the bedding was nice and clean and the bed was comfortable, however the general cleanliness was disappointing, there were cornflakes etc around the bed, the kitchen needed a thorough wipe down and the dish washing utensil was unusable so a quick trip to the shops for a kitchen sponge and tea towel necessary. The bathroom was tiny which was no surprise as we had read that in previous reviews, but a nice shower made up for that. Sofa extremely uncomfy. The overall feeling was one of a bedsit rather than a Bath apartment. Location fantastic and host/manager very pleasant.

I really liked the location. It was really close to the city center, and a 15 minute walk from the train station. The view from the back of the building was spectacular - of Bath Abbey and Number 17 gardens. If you needed to catch a bus, the bus stops were also close by. The layout for the room was great. It was nice to have a fridge, stove, microwave etc. It was a great touch to have some food already available in the room for our usage (milk, cereal, and other basics). The fresh cut flowers were also a welcome touch. The bedding was clean and fresh smelling. The style of the room, although somewhat modernized, still had the old century charm with the carved crown molding, and wooden shutters. The staff was also super friendly and accommodating.
The drawbacks: The single pane windows allowed for any tractor and lawn mower noise to wake us at 7am during one of the nights we stayed there. The bathroom was also a bit small, and difficult to move around in. The bathroom fan also sounded like a Lear jet, and didn't efficiently remove the moisture from the room. There was a lack of recycling bins to place our glass, plastic and paper products. If you expect a soft bed – this one was a bit thin and hard – kind of like something you would expect from Ikea.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that is not on the main floor, as you can hear people walking around above you. That...
