This is an okay place to stay in Bath. It is about a 20 minute walk from the town center- buses run frequently, but my wife and I chose to walk. Walking back to the hotel after dark was fine for us since I'm a big guy, but I can see how single women may not want to do this walk at night (especially through the park).
As for the hotel itself, the host was not present when we arrived, so we had to just park and walk around for 45 minutes or so until he returned. Once the host returned, he was friendly and helpful. The room had two beds and some chairs, so it was very crowded and tough to find a place to set my suitcase. I think the host noticed we were crowded because he kindly moved on of the chairs out of our room without our asking him, which was appreciated. Cleanliness was in the lower 1/4 of the eight B&Bs I stayed in on this trip around England. There was nothing disgusting in the room, but everything felt a little run down and old (also slightly smelled like cigarette smoke).
This B&B served its purpose as a place to sleep, but don't expect any luxury.
