“Absolutely brilliant homely welcoming B&B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014

Can't rate this B&B highly enough. Louise and her staff all made us most welcome. It seemed that we were in someone's home. All the bedrooms individually designed, lounge and dining area full of lovely pictures and ornaments. Food was superb and was of restaurant quality. Would definitely stay there again when visiting Bath. Oh B&B was just outside city centre and buses were regular into there so no need to use the car.

Room Tip: Maybe ask for a room at the back as front rooms face onto road. Though not really a big issue.

Although we have never been here before, we made the right choice after reading trip advisor. Bedrooms were very clean and tidy although a lot of road noise early morning but not a problem to us. Staff very helpfull. After having a tiring day in bath we decided to have a meal at the Forester which was adequate and well presented. bar was busy but able to get a drink, prices were reasonable. Would hae liked a cooked breakfast but what we had was more than adequate. Parking, The Forester And Flower has a small car park and there is a very good bus service into Bath which only takes about 10 mins.

My friend and I are just back from a short, to short visit to The Forester and Flower. What a lovely B and B. The welcome was very warm and friendly. The rooms immaculate, comfortable and quirky. The restaurant great, food excellent and service very good. Breakfast albeit a continental style was wonderful. Who needs egg and bacon. The choice was very good and the constant supply if coffee was great.
There is a bus that stops amost outside and takes you direct to the bus station in Bath. 8 mins approx and youre there.
We will be back

Such a lovely B&B, we stayed in the lily room, so pretty! very comfy beds. I forgot my face wipes and louise even gave me some so I didn't have to go to the shop, such a lovely, welcoming lady. We ate in the restaurant and could not complain, very good food.
If we were to come to bath again would definitely stay here.

We as two couples just spent the night at this B&B . It was great. Louise is a very welcoming innkeeper. The rooms are named after flowers. We had Pansy and my brother and wife had Iris. The rooms are warmly decorated and those two are en suite. Breakfast is called continental, but was probably the best breakfast of our trip-fresh seasonal fruit, homemade bread, homemade jellies. She waits on one's every desire. There is free wi- fi and parking.

Room Tip: Iris faces the side road so is probably quieter.

We stayed for two nights for our 30th Wedding Anniversary. Louise had remembered that we were celebrating (even though we booked way back in January) and gave us a little bottle of sparkling wine, which was really kind. We went into Bath for the day and when we returned to our room she had been out and bought a Pearl Anniversary balloon which she had put on our bed. Such a kind and thoughtful gesture. Our room was spotless and comfortable. Breakfast was continental and there was an amazing choice of cereals, fresh and dried fruits, nuts and home made jams etc. All in all a thoroughly enjoyable stay and we would really recommend it. We didn't have an evening meal there (we had booked elsewhere) but the menu looked great and we will definitely eat there next time.
