A lovely B&B just out of Bath in Batheaston with parking and wifi. A short trip by taxi from Bath train station or there is a bus stop nearby. Surrounded by lovely walks and pubs. We stayed here overnight in September and were treated to a lovely room with a view of the extensive garden and a delicious continental breakfast... More

Beautiful Georgian Guest House just outside Bath with a regular bus service into the City. Owners George and Jane are warm and friendly hosts. Breakfast was served in the Orangery, a lovely place to just sit and relax. Large garden with lots of nooks and interesting features. Some lovely local walks especially along the river. Would recommend it highly.

If you enjoy staying outside the city centres this ticked most of the boxes as the host was welcoming, breakfast was delicious. Nice pubs and restaurants within walking distance. Was relatively easy to find and had parking which is a bonus. If you like 400 year old buildings you will enjoy.

This B&B was located in a side street. No noise at night. Near the bus stop as we took the bus into Bath for a look at the Baths. Free parking, free WiFi and great breakfast. No complaints from us. We recommend to all.

This is a lovely little B&B which luckily accommodated us at the last minute because of a horrible experience at the Old Mill Hotel down the road. Jane and George were lovely, they had the suite available which is large and spacious. We had to push the twin beds together but they were very comfortable and this wasn't too much... More

During our recent tour of the UK, one of the places to visit on our bucket list was Bath. Rather than stay in yet another hotel, we decided to choose a B&B. We were lucky enough to select Dolphin House. Charming hosts, lovely house/home, wonderful city. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and take pleasure in highly recommending this B and... More

This B and B is very clean. It is out of town, however we used the bus to get into Bath from the end of the road. It only took 15 mins on the bus (£2.20 each way). We had a lovely breakfast, fresh fruit, croissants and cereal.

We like to stay B&Bs because of their uniqueness and good value (this was particularly good value for a high tourist-traffic city). But we are also somewhat reserved people, so we appreciated that the hosts were warm and helpful but not in any way nosy or obtrusive. We enjoyed being a little ways out of Bath proper and walking around... More

Loads of space at a decent price, house and garden especially are beautiful, it's pretty simple but the owners are lovely and whole experience v relaxing. About £10 cab out of town or a 15-20 min bus which goes every 20 mins - worth bearing in mind
