“Perfect weekend break”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 January 2013

My partner and I were having a weekend break and found this place simply by chance. We received a very warm welcome into Charles and Anna's home and were immediately invited down for homemade cake and tea in their sitting room. The room was beautifully decorated and the bathroom was fantastically maintained. The breakfast was amazing and one that will certainly set you up for the day, with homemade smoothies too. Charles kindly offered us maps of the town and suggested lovely places to eat, and even the best places to park the car! We happened to go down the weekend of the Christmas market and consequently did not manage to see everything we would have liked, but we shall certainly be staying at De Montalt Wood again to complete our tour of Bath as we were very sad to leave.

A real delight to return to this beautiful house at Christmas time. Our room this time was the large & luxurious en-suite Tulip room, with sweeping views over the gardens and surrounding wooded valleys, where we enjoyed a good long winter walk when we arrived.

The room was perfectly appointed and elegantly furnished with a huge bed, flat screen tv etc, and the bathroom is the height of classical style with every luxury offered from the heated flooring, double sinks, floor to ceiling mirror and expensive toiletries.

The breakfasts are among the finest I've enjoyed - smoked salmon, rustic bread, fresh coffee, and the hospitality was as generous and welcoming as ever.

Thank you both very much indeed - we're already looking forward to next time!

Wanting to have a memorable experience to celebrate my partner's significant anniversary, the B&B offered luxury, that personal touch, superb breakfast, welcoming hosts, and ideal location. Set just outside Bath, a short taxi ride in and out offered us the chance to enjoy all that Bath has to offer. Further, set within the outstanding surrounding countryside overlooknig Wiltshire, we were able to easily access the lovely walks / cycle routes along the Kennet and Avon Canal into Bradford on Avon and take that cultural experience in too. But knowing we could retreat to the warm, welcoming house with beautiful bedroom (biggest bed ever slept in), luxurious bathroom, and breakfast - my partner said it was the best breakfast she had ever tasted; the home made smoothies made me feel she was not wrong - set in an elegant dining room overlooking well manicured, inviting gardens made our stay perfect.

Room Tip: There are only 2 so its impossible to go wrong

This really is the most wonderful b&b you could hope for. As soon as you step through the grand doors you are immediately enveloped by the homeliness and luxuriousness of De Montalt Wood. On arrival, after our long journey, we were scooped up by the most wonderful hosts you could wish for ; Ann&Charles and treated to a glass of wine with them in their glorious sitting room, the perfect start to the perfect weekend.The rooms are just out of this world, bed unbelievably comfortable and they are kitted out with everything you could wish for. I cannot, not mention the sumptuous breakfast which was laid out exquisitely with silver cutlery and newspapers too, fit for a king/queen! We were utterly spoilt from beginning to end, and looked after so well that we really didn't want to leave and cannot thank Charles and Ann enough for being so kind&caring. If you're considering a break do not hesitate to stay here, it's more that you could ever wish for in a b&b.

Wonderfull hosts with a exquisite house....

I would just like to echo the many compliments already passed on and confirm all the reviews are accurate

In short we had an amazing time...i wouldn't hesitate to return in an instant..

its worth mentioning that there are only 2 rooms.....so in reality the business won't receive as many reviews as some......however i feel that is part of the charm.

You feel that you are not simply a paying customer but a guest; and treated as such

I urge you to view the website.....photographs are a true reflection of what you can expect.....

Oh and book early because it really is that good ! ! !

Both my husband and I would rate this No. 1. We were welcomed warmly and treated like long time friends. Shortly after we arrived we were treated to tea and hommade cake that was absolutely delicious. The day after we arrived,my husband came down with a nasty head cold, and Ann fixed him a special cough preparation that helped mightily. The accomodations were outstanding, both the bedroom and the bathroom. The breakfasts were unbelieveable with the quality and quantity of selections. Charles drove us around the neighborhood, showed us where the nearest bus stop was located, drove us to the center of Bath, and indicated the location of all the points of interest. A rating of Excellent seems inadequate!! Our stay at De Montalt Wood was the Best Ever! The Stephens, Lake Forest Park, Wa. USA

Brenda and Lon: As our first American visitors, you did your country proud. Ann and I were impressed by the way you arranged a complex travel itinerary directly over the internet and then were not afraid to make changes when en-route. Poor Lon was obviously suffering but did not let it affect his enthusiasm in any way. Your really are a ‘can do’ nation!

Thank so much for your wonderful review – we really appreciate it and it was a great pleasure having you to stay with us.

The reviews are not wrong - this B&B was outstanding and the best we have experienced. Ann and Charles are truly wonderful and welcoming hosts and as previous reviewers suggest, we left feeling that we had made new friends. From the magnificent gardens to the sumptuous room (complete with large bathroom), the attention to detail was superb. We could not recommend this B&B more highly.

Meredith and Rob: You booked your stay with us, a long time in advance, all the way from Australia, when we had only been open for 2 months. I am so pleased we justified your faith in us.

I wish you had stayed a little longer and I could have had the chance, Meredith, to hear you accompany yourself to an Aria or little Lieder on the grand piano! Rob, I hope you take some great photos back with you.

Thank you for taking the trouble to send us a lovely review.
