The personality of the owner of this lovely guest house shines through in everything that the guest sees and experiences when staying here. The place, situated in a decent suburban quiet street, is spotlessly clean and well-presented. Everything (!) works, looks good, feels right (bed!) and tastes lovely. The clean shower has that lovely water pressure, the sausages and bacon and evening dinners (if you wish) are "haute cuisine"..! One can see that Laurent's professional background is in running some hotels of very well-known international top-end brands. It is no surprise that Laurent is able to make the vast majority of his guests become loyal guests, who return time after time to enjoy the first-class, truly authentic and personable hospitality.
When I need to be in Maidenhead again, or somwhere near it, in fact, then I know where to stay. ..If it isn't fully booked, given the outstanding quality.

This guest house is an absolute credit to Laurent. As other reviewers have stated, it's much more than that really. There is a genuine warmth to Laurent's welcome and his hospitality is second to none. The guest house is tastefully decorated and furnished and impeccably clean. What really wins the day though is Laurent's attention to detail, which makes each guest feel incredibly special. If you are staying in the area, this is the place to stay.

Although we have visited Maidenhead many times in the past as our family lives there, we had not discovered the Bakehouse before. We both thoroughly enjoyed our stay there, Laurent was the perfect host and we looked forward to coming down to breakfast each morning, enjoying really good company and conversation - it was just like staying with a friend. We had a lovely superior room upstairs which was spanking clean and so comfortable and well equipped. We cannot praise this guest house highly enough and we do hope to return in the very near future.

Thank you Laurent (not forgetting Cecile!)

Room Tip: Don't think you'll be able to beat the superior room!

Laurent does not just run a guest house. He exercises the art of perfect Hospitality, guest satisfaction and household management to a point where a guest becomes a friend that does not want to leave.. My Wife and I spent four days, during which we celebrated our wedding anniversary. Laurent and his daughter Cecile pulled out all the stops to make it an event to remember and boast about for all the years we have left. I can not add to the superlatives that others have written, only endorse every single point of excellence.. The heart of Laurent's world, his Kitchen / dining room and Office has the ambiance of a friendly farmhouse, one to which we look forward to revisiting..

As I'm often travelling for my work, it can be lonely sometimes. When I'm stayin in the Bakehouse I feel like I'm home. Laurent will always warmly welcome you.
Meals are always consumed along with the other guests. What creates a pleasant atmosphere.
In the evening you can have a nice healthy dinner, accompanied with a glass of wine.
Every day a customized breakfast to your own wishes.
The rooms are spotless and the mattresses are fabulous. I always sleep like a baby :-).

Laurent sounds nice on the 'phone, and when I arrived, there's a warm greeting. The Bakehouse is in a quiet residential street 15 minutes walk from the town centre, and is completely tranquil.

My superior room upstairs has a king sized bed- incredibly comfortable and a nicely sized shower. Plenty of hanging and cupboard space, real coat hangers. Secure parking behind the property. Wifi is fast and free. The password is a great example of Laurent's sense of humour. You'll have to stay to find out.... Note that the standard rooms are a bit smaller and not all have ensuite bathrooms.

Laurent doesn't advertise, and he doesn't have to, because he has the secret of a great b&b: get the small details right. Here's my list - and I'm sure I've missed things out: Breakfast has good quality sausages and bacon; Laurent cooks for you in the large kitchen as you chat across the big table. The cupboards contain an iron, ironing board. Blackout blinds as well as curtains on the windows so if you like to sleep in you won't be woken by the light outside. Proper bottles of shampoo and shower gel instead of soppy sachets. A decent teapot that doesn't drip all over the place. Even your name on the napkin ring.

B&Bs don't come better than this.

Room Tip: Superior rooms worth the extra, but stay anyway.
