“Small rooms but excellent location!”
Reviewed 19 November 2012

Stayed here for two nights with my partner just to chill out and see a bit of Bath. We were given a parking permit to park for free and were lucky to find a parking space nearby. Rita was very friendly and helpful. We didn't have any complaints about the service or cleanliness and the breakfast is very nice, lots of choice and more coffee/tea and toast is offered should you want it. The location is excellent for looking around the city, only a 5 minute flat walk into the centre where there are loads of things to do and see, lots of restaurants, pubs, café's and shops. The only disappointment for us really was the size of the room, it was extremely small, no where to put your bags without tripping over them. The bathroom too was very small. Our room was at the front which, as it is on a very busy main road, was very noisy. This didn't bother us because of the time of year, we kept the windows shut but may bother some people. Having said that the rooms are clean and the bed very comfortable. We enjoyed our stay but do think it is slightly over priced for the size.

Just arrived home after a lovely stay in Bath with my mum.. Rita was a very friendly host and her B & B is a great place to stay with comfortable beds, immaculately clean, and a great breakfast to start the day. We also had a parking permit off her and being located 5 mins flat walk into the city centre, this meant we could park up and not have to use the car again.
Bath city is beautiful with beautiful buildings and its history of the roman baths. We did the roman baths tour as well as trying out the thermal baths which were superb and very relaxing.The walking tour which meets at 10.30am and 2.30pm outside the roman baths, which is free, yes free, is a must. It gives you lots of info about the city and the guide who was a police man was brilliant and brought the city to life for us with his knowledge of the city years ago.
I recommend staying at the crescent guest house and will without a doubt be coming back to stay with my husband, so he too can experience the majic of Bath. Brilliant !

Rita is an excellent host and we had a great time. She had many suggestions for places to eat and things to see and was very interested in our experiences. The breakfasts were worth the stay.

We actually stayed here in June of 2011 but I just joined TA so I'm catching up.

Don't miss renting a bike and touring the country.

This was a pleasant but slightly disappointing stay on the first night of a fortnight's walking trip. I have no criticism of the welcome, general cleanliness (but see below), location or comfort of the room or the breakfast. It was conveniently located for the city centre and for the start of the Cotswold Way. The communal breakfast table, encouraging interesting conversation (in my case, with visitors from across the pond), and the bowl of complementary Foxes mints in the hallway were nice touches. I can recommend the pub just along the road (The Hop Pole - to the west) for local beer and cider, food, friendly staff and general ambience.

However, overall I thought this guest house sufficiently unexceptional for the charge of £70 for a single room, considering what I experienced elsewhere for almost 30% less, and I am unclear that this can be fully explained by the Bath factor. There was also quite a strong drain-type smell after using the shower which is reflected in my rating for cleanliness.

Accordingly, since there is no rating of "good", I am afraid that I have to go for "average".

Thank you Rita and Jean for looking after me recently. The breakfasts are so good that after staying 14 nights I have put on weight! It was a most enjoyable stay (as always) and I will certainly be back very soon.

Our third stay at The Crescent and it was brilliant as ever. A homely atmosphere, a beautifully cooked breakfast, comfortable bed and nice Au Lait products in the en suite. And all within ten minutes walk from the centre of Bath. Thank you Rita and Jean for a really enjoyable stay.

This guest house was excellent! Stayed here for 3 nights in September 2012. Within easy commuting distance of the town centre (about 10 minute walk). Room was spotlessly clean and comfoftable - bed was made up each day. Breakfast was excellent (they even served French toast with Maple Syrup!). Hostess Rita was welcoming and informative. Would highly recommend for anyone visiting Bath. This guest house well deserves its Four Star rating
