“Nice clean room over a small Pub”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

Our stay was on a Saturday night, and you might think that a room over a pub on Saturday night might not be a good idea. Well we never herd anything from the pub, but the weather was very warm and we had to have the windows open. The traffic noise was very annoying. The parking is on the street and there was a continental (not cooked) breakfast. I will have to say the choices for the breakfast were very good with lots of fruits, baked & cereal choices. The owner and host was very kind and helpful.

This place is spot on. Beautiful rooms, delicious breakfast, fantastic and friendly hosts. Great value!

The bus stop is really helpful and it runs pretty late.

We've recommended it to everyone we know!

The Forester & Flower is a 10 min bus trip out of the centre of Bath - the bus stop is directly over the road - no hassles.
The rooms are lovely and feel slightly extravagant and homely all at the same time! Breakfast is plentiful and fresh - a great start to the day.
We stayed here two nights and found it to be an excellent spot to explore Bath and surrounding areas (we had a quick trip to Bristol one night - 40mins away).
The landlady (sorry can't remember her name), is lovely and can't do enough to make sure your stay is a pleasant one. The B&B is attached to a pub with a lovely outside area at the back.
Highly recommend, and I would definitely visit again.

We spent four nights at this attractive old-style hotel. The room was very comfortable, with everything we needed. We did not have an en-suite, but we had a private bathroom a few steps away.

Louise, the proprietor, was very friendly and helpful, and we especially appreciated the early breakfast when we had to make a quick getaway on the last morning. Although breakfast here was continental, rather than a full English breakfast, we found this a welcome change. The large variety of fresh fruits made it one of the healthiest breakfasts we've had on this trip.

Location was convenient as there is a bus stop just across the road - a ten minute ride into town. We enjoyed our stay here very much and would recommend "Forrester and Flower" to anyone coming to the lovely city of Bath.

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.
