Stayed here as attending a wedding just up the road. Lovely place! I had the Wells room on the ground floor and I cannot fault the room! Spacious, light and airy. Bed very comfortable indeed. Breakfast is taken over at The George, a buffet of cereals, yogurt, fruit and pastries and then a hot menu cooked to order. Delicious! Would... More

We booked to stay at the Plaine as we were attending a wedding just up the road, what a treat. The room was lovely and it is associated with the George Inn across the road which is 700 years old and full of character. We were treated very well by all the staff who couldn't do enough for us.

Initially tried to book at The George Inn but advised it was full. They offered a room here as they also take the bookings. We were not disappointed! The ground floor room looked across to the George and it was lovely, newly decorated, nothing to complain about, and the shower was fantastic!! We had dinner that evening across at The... More

Stephanie was warm and helpful, giving us solid advice and clear directions to where we wanted to go. There were two pubs on the same intersection as the guesthouse. The bathroom was clean, the beds comfortable. Breakfast was good, and served in a cozy dining room. This is a very old house, and I wouldn't recommend it for people with... More

Travelling with 2 small kids is not always easy, but the owners made us feel very welcome and the boys were well catered for. The building and rooms have loads of character and are very well maintained and impeccably clean and tidy. The breakfast is homely and can be tailored to your tastes. Its also refreshing to be offered top... More

This was a nice B&B only about 9 miles from Bath. We had a family room for 2 aduts and 2 children, given this the room was a little small. Breakfast was good, but a bit restricted, if you ordered just sausage and eggs for example you still only got 1 sausage and 1 egg!

We were recommended this b&b by the George Inn across the road and we thought it was fantastic. When we arrived we were greeted by Giles who showed us to our gorgeous bedroom, with beautiful furniture and a four poster bed. We went across to the George for a beautiful meal. We were given a key to the front door,... More

Two US girls traveling one night got lost and found this gem of a place. Thanks to a recommendation down the road we were able to drop in unannounced and rent a room for the evening.
