“Beautiful, elegant house in a perfect location.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Had my hen do at La Belle Abode and can not express enough how beautiful and elegant this place is.
There were 19 of us in the house and we all fitted comfortably.
The house is finished to a very high standard, with everything you need for a short stay and within easy walking distance of the town centre and supermarket.
We all parked in the long stay car park which was very reasonable at £12.50 per 24 hours.
Would definitely recommend La Belle Abode to groups planning a weekend away; one of the best weekends of my life was spend here surrounded by family and friends.

“A Beautiful Elegant house!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We stayed at La Belle Abode for my sisters Hen Party. The house was everything I expected and more!! Such a beautiful place to stay with 20 women! Each room was decorated lovely, the kitchen had welcome treats, the bathrooms were luxuries and as for the stairs they helped us work off all the food and drink. This was such a good find and will defiantly be recommending to friends!!,

“Wow! Everything you would want and more.....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Stayed for a Hen weekend. All amenities there...beautifully clean. Tastefully decorated and a short walk to the city. Arranged over several floors, each room of a top quality for furniture and fittings. Kitchen large with nothing extra to bring other than food! A fantastic time was had and would thoroughly recommend.

“Fantastic house, amazing location.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

I loved this house and our hen party was amazing, of course the guests make it what it is, but what a great setting!

The house was amazingly clean, large rooms, good facilities and comfortable!

The reason for not giving 5* is because our room (3rd floor facing garden/courtyard) had blinds that allowed light in, so after a heavy night, we were awoken by the light blazing through the windows/blinds at 5am. Maybe fit shutters, black out blinds or curtains?

Also, due to the toilet being next to our room, we got disturbed a lot by other house mates that were up later; we wanted to use the spare room in the basement, however it smelt really musty and damp and couldn't sleep due to it either.

It would definitely not put me off returning though and I would recommend the place to anyone! Fantastic!

“Best hen weekend ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2014 for a stay in February 2014

I booked La Belle Abode for my sister's hen do and it surpassed all expectations! The photographs do not do it justice and we were totally amazed at the size of the house and more specifically the rooms. There were 19 girls staying and we had so much space there was never an issue of living on top of one another.

The kitchen is wonderfully equipped with everything you need and the bedrooms are extremely comfortable. The decoration and details are second to none and it all felt extremely opulent.

The location of the house is fantastic. Right in the centre of the Bath and we didn't have to get a taxi anywhere as everything was walking distance – we had dinner at OPA which I would definitely recommend.

It was such a fun weekend and I would recommend La Belle Abode to anyone visiting the city - I would also recommend those at Laura's Townhouse who made the whole process so effortless.

“Luxurious house - great for large groups with a longer stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 December 2013 for a stay in December 2013

First of all, the apartment is gorgeous, stunning interiors and exteriors, beautifully decorated and care has obviously been taken with presentation. The place has a really nice feel and really feels like home while you are there. Heating is great, location is fantastic and there's a sense of importance in leaving this stately home in the morning and people staring at you, obviously thinking how lucky you are to be staying in this huge gorgeous place.

Beds were comfy and there was little noise from the rest of the house which was great for getting a good nights sleep.

A couple of minor downsides being that the oven is not big enough to cater easily for many guests. Also the wifi really only works on the ground level and drawing room level... Certainly didnt work on the top level. The stairs get a bit tiring but that is to be expected. The children's beds on the top floor are too narrow for adults, so that needs to be a consideration if you are planning for adults in that room. A few more sets of keys would have been useful, 3 sets between 15 people wasn't really enough. Parking is an issue, but I think that's the case with most accommodation in the city centre area.

Overall I would certainly recommend this accommodation and hope I am lucky enough to stay again!

“Perfect Location, Lovely House, Great Hen Weekend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 November 2013 for a stay in November 2013
1
person found this review helpful

The house is in a lovely location, within perfect walking distance of all the main area's of Bath, such as the Pump House, Therme Bath Spa and the main shops.

For our weekend we wanted exactly this, a great central location which could cope with a large group of hen's in one house. The options for our size of group were slightly limiting and this was an expensive choice, however it was worth it as everyone had such a great time.

Things I would have liked to have known before booking:
The downside to the central location was vehicle access and parking - the house came with one parking permit but I had thought that we would be able to bring the car up close to the house for unloading and then park in the street. This wasn't the case, it took us over 1h30m to unload our car full of food/bags/decorations etc from the nearby York St and the chances of then getting a parking space that close by were very slim. If we had known earlier than the day before arrival that it was a fully pedestrian area then we could have perhaps packed our bags of food etc so that they were easier to unload and get to the house.

In our opinion the kitchen lacked cooking facilities for such a large house, it only had one standard/small sized oven which when catering for 12/16 people is quite difficult to fit everything in.

The dining room was located conveniently next door to the kitchen, then the drawing room is up on the next floor. This made it slightly difficult to host, cook and keep in with the party so if hosting dinner it would be ideal to try and cook something which can be put in the oven or on the hob and left without spoiling if not checked on regularly - or even better get someone in to do this for you.

Rooms were all lovely sizes and decorated in stylish design and had nice crisp white linens.

On the whole a very enjoyable weekend was had by all and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend or return to the house in the future.
