“Bad attitude”
Reviewed 29 October 2008

First impressions were great everyone seemed helpful but things soon changed.

We booked two rooms one for one night and one for two nights and unfortunately we couldn't keep our second night stay.

When we phone to explain this 5 days before we thought there may be some form of cancellation fee but were shocked ot find that they wanted us to leave cash or cheque in case they could not fill the room.

We were also told at this point that we were trying to scam a single night stay with them as this was not there policy however at no time were we made aware of this until we tried to cancel a room.

We were greeted by a very rude lady who barely made us feel welcome and then when we offered to leave our contact details to pay for the second room if it could not be filled - could anyone blame us for not wanting to leave the money there? we were barricaded in to the yard and told by the owner that we were w*%kers! How pleasant!!

Our relaxing weekend in Bath with our friends did not turn out how we planned and we then had to borrow £25 from our friends to allow us to leave.

I was disgustede withthe attitude of the owners and with the empty threats of prosecution which i have looked in to and what they did was totally wrong.

We have stayed in many small bed and breakfasts and have never been so appalled with the attitude and lack of clarity with booking rules and regulations!

I would not reccommend this place to anyone unless they want to run the risk of being held hostage in Bath!

Stayed October 2008

We were met with a very warm welcome at Rainbow Wood Farm , Bath and on arrival were shown to our bedrooms. These were delightful and had everything we needed for our stay. We were given a key and could come and go as we pleased. The farm is situated very well for Bath and although is in the countryside, you are still able to access the city very easily. The beds were very comfortable and the cooked breakfast was delicious. We would love to return some time to experience it all over again.

  • Liked — Farm setting
  • Disliked — Probably having no bath but I knew that in advance of arrival

My wife and two kids I stayed at Rainbow wood farm and we all enjoyed our stay, room was pleasant, full English breakfast hit the spot and the hosts even went to the trouble to give our family a farm tour which the kids loved, would recommend the place to anyone.

stayed at Rainbow Wood Farm - both my daughter and I were bitten by fleas living in the bedside rugs.
bed - disguisting - we couldnt sleep found bed "lumpy" discovered under the matress numerous pillows and blankets (obviously trying to keep the matress flat and straight)
ensuite dirty, mouldy, towels like cardboard. The lady who cooks the breakfast was nice (it was a good breakfast) but the owner and her husband are rude (they give the impression you are a nuisance and all they want is your money!) Unless its the last bed in Bath dont stay there!
