“Lovely one-night stay.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

Nightmare journey, roadworks all over Bath, satnav sent us to wrong place then we couldn't park. Building site across the road. So first impressions not good. However, how wrong we were. Spotlessly clean, attention to detail, quirky decor. Lovely comfy bed. Gorgeous continental-type breakfast with a huge choice of cereals, pancakes, waffles, crumpets, different breads and loads of home-made preserves. Also yogurt, strawberries, pineapple, blueberries, dried fruits, nuts -beautiful.

Bus stop across the road, 10 mins into Bath centre.

Friendly chatty helpful landlady.

Highly recommended.

Very comfortable well run hotel with loads of charm at a good price. Part of the reason we chose this Hotel is that the hotels in the city centre appeared overpriced. The hotel is conveniently located being a 10 minute bus ride to city centre with bus leaving directly across the road. Very helpful hosts with good quality Continental breakfast (as well as pancakes and waffles) provided. Located on relatively busy road however no road noise was evident with window closed.

Room Tip: Some bathrooms are separate from room rather than being ensuite. We stayed in king room with bath t...

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.
