“Quirky”
Reviewed 13 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

La Belle Abode is in a great location - very near all the sites of Bath and close to the station. It is a large house over 5 stories than can sleep up to 20 people, but is also good for a more intimate gathering. By the decor and comments book, a lot of hen's parties use it. What worked: location, facilities, lounge room, bedrooms. What didn't work: wi-fi (terrible), dining room (more like a conference room), glassware (very random), rubbish collection (left out on the street as requested to still be there a day later), seagulls (love all the rubbish and will keep you awake all night...).

“A good place for a hen party but don't expect Georgian elegance!”
Reviewed 3 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

The house was well equipped with essentials but the decor was definitely more designed for a girly hen party rather than our perhaps slightly more traditional tastes. Though there were many nice prints of Bath in the reception areas, mirror framed pictures of high heels and corsets, Marylin Monroe etc.. we're the order of the day in the bedrooms. The furniture was similarly a strange mix of mock Georgian and pure kitsch.Though there were TVs in every room, there were absolutely no books in the entire house. The WiFi hub was in the cellar and provided very poor reception on the two lower floors but no reception at all on the upper floorsThere were lots of 'feature' clocks ( none of them old) but not a single one was working as no one had bothered to change the batteries. The dining room was very peculiar indeed with fold up office/school tables covered in extremely somber black tablecloths. It felt something between a wake and corporate away day! There were a few high stools in the kitchen but some of these seemed extremely rickety. Perhaps the worst thing about our visit was the huge number of herring gulls that were resident in this part of town. They were extremely noisy from 4.15am onwards and woke up even the youngsters in our group on each day.

“Bath townhouse”
Reviewed 13 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Just returned from a 2 night stay for a hen part at the town house. Had a fantastic stay with the city right on the doorstep. The arrival was very welcoming with tea/coffee and some snacks waiting for us. The booking was very simple and was able too email the owner and have our questions quickly answered. Fitted all the party comfortably in the house with adequate bathrooms. All the hens were very pleased with the accomadation and I will 100% be recommending this accomadation.

“Beautifully decorated, centrally located, spacious townhouse.”
Reviewed 14 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Excellent location - 5 mins walk from the train station. Each room was beautifully presented, clean, with towels and linen. Spacious dining room and lounge for communal areas, great for larger groups. Well stocked kitchen in terms of mugs, plates and glasses. But cooking equipment wasn't so great- a small minus in an otherwise fantastic rental. We had a wonderful stay - thank you!

“La belle abode ”
Reviewed 6 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

A beautiful house in a very central location. Excellent cleanliness . The little extras made a difference such as croissants, tea and coffee. The house is huge, so plenty of room for a 15 strong hen do! A wonderful time was had by all!

“Size and location - great, house could be much better”
Reviewed 10 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

Visited for Christmas markets with 17 friends. Location is fantastic and the house is huge. Unfortunately lots of little things make up to a mediocre review. Dining room is so difficult to get into due to shape of table that we hardly used it. Just put 2 tables in! Surprised there is no coffee machine, but M&S is literally round the corner. Top bedroom ridiculously hot especially bed beside boiler.
Basement rooms are cold and smell horribly of damp. Really surprised heating isn't on low down there all the time - not pleasant. Beds are comfy but very narrow. A major gripe is given that mainly women visit - one small wardrobe per room and zero drawer space!! Chandaliers are lovely but if you have them, clean them!

“WOW What a weekend to remember and all because of La Belle Abode”
Reviewed 16 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

person found this review helpful

I visited this property with 18 friends for my hen weekend in Bath. We stayed for 2 nights. On arrival we were greeted and given a welcome pack of croissants and teas and shown around the property. I was totally blown away with every room, absolutely stunning!!! We had a night in on the Friday Night to make the most of the house and the facilities are just great and very luxurious. The bedroom layouts are fab and the fact that all of the beds can be split into single beds was brilliant and meant that we all had a great nights sleep, may i just add that the beds are also very comfortable. The location of this property is excellent, for those of us that travelled by train it was a mere 5-10 min walk and easy to find, those of us that drove parked in Manvers Sreet Car Park which was only 5 minutes away. We all loved the fact that we were so close to the Abbey and situated in such a beautiful part of the city, it made popping out for extra supplies very easy. Every single one of us wished we could have stayed longer thank you so much for such a fantastic weekend.
