“Clean, well kept and superbly located”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

Located on St. James' Parade, the apartments are literally a minute from the newer Southgate Shopping area and only a few minutes from the ThermaSpa and Roman Baths. The Royal Crescent is a mere 10-minute walk through the town.

The apartment itself was big enough for two and appointed reasonably well; a small kitchen with everything you need, double-shower in the bathroom (no bath) and a good size double bedroom., washing machine and tumble dryer. Everything was clean and well maintained. Furniture wasn't particularly expensive but suited purpose just fine for a weekend crash-pad.

We booked for the early May bank holiday weekend - Friday through to Sunday night, which was a little pricey but that price is soon forgotten when you consider the convenience of location and facilities.

There's only room for a few cars in the car park, so you'll need to book that well ahead - otherwise they recommend Southgate's Car Park which is a minute's walk away.. £26 for Fri late arrival through leaving Sunday morning (£13/day approx).

Room Tip: Some apartments are internal, ours had a door of its own straight out onto the road - try and get on...

We chose SACO for a weekend visit to Bath. Initially we'd only booked for one night, but we found ourselves so comfortable that we ended up booking for another night.

The apartment was perfectly finished with all home comforts. The lovely kitchen allowed us to make our own breakfast (there's a Sainsbury's just around the corner), the bath and shower provided piping hot water and the bed was really comfortable.

The welcome was warm and the receptionist provided us with plenty of leaflets and recommendations for what to do.

...and finally, the location is perfect. Right in the heart of Bath.

In short... I would definitely recommend.

Room Tip: Perhaps request a room at the back as the main road can be a little noisy on Saturday night

Following a last minute decision to visit Bath over the Easter weekend my wife and I were a little stuck for choices until we came across these apartments. Having now visited we can confirm that the apartments are a pretty good place to stay; the location in particular is great as you can park up and walk to most of the major attractions within a few minutes.

At a guess the apartments may originally have been built as apartments to sell off as although situated within a Georgian structure; they have the typical new build style and feel to them – nothing wrong per se but don’t expect a load of character internally. Our room was in fact a studio with ‘proper’ bed and this was fine for two people, not huge but perfectly adequate for a couple of nights and it is kind of nice to have your own small kitchen.

All in all a pleasant if unremarkable stay but definitely fit for purpose.

These self contained apartments are conveniently located to the city centre and the train and bus station. Everything is a short walk away. My apartment was very clean and spacious. The bath room was spotless. I would highly recommend for anyone staying in Bath for a short time.

Very well positioned studio, moments away from Bath's sights, cultural and leisure activities and train station. Clean and spacious. We faced onto the main road but were not disturbed by noise. Very nice welcome when we checked in (and were able to access the studio two hours earlier than normal check-in which was much appreciated.) Having a kitchenette gave us real flexibility. Would highly recommend this option.

Very friendly welcome from the Aussie couple who run it, who were also a great source of advice on where to go etc in Bath. SACO stands for Serviced Appartment Company and the attraction is there is a so much space plus the flexibility to have breakfast/ a cup of tea/Glass of wine at your convenience and at a much lower cost than a hotel.Spotlessly clean and a fully equipped kitchen-dishwasher, microwave, hob, oven, washing machine etc- with Sainsbury's/Tesco/M&S for supplies within walking distance. Very good location near the station. Obviously a good option for long stays but it also suited us for our two night holiday. Recommended and we will now try their other sites in Europe

We spent a long weekend in SACO in Bath and found the apartments superb - well-equipped and a great location. We had a slight issue with the first apartment we were assigned but the manager was extremely helpful and managed to move us for which we were really grateful. I would highly recommend.
