I followed up 3 unanswered emails with a call requesting that we have 2 rooms with showers having read reviews on trip advisor. I was told we did however then got a call back saying we didn't. I don't feel for over £100 per night you should really get a room in this day and age that doesn't have a... More

We stayed for two nights during the Jane Austen festival. We had a car park space saved for us, a real bonus in Bath. The room was a little small but clean and comfortable. Nice breakfast too. The real plus was the wonderful couple running it. So friendly and welcoming. Thank you both.

The guest house is located on the Upper Bristol road and is ideally situated between Royal Victoria Park and the River Avon, with the main city centre of Bath probably no more than 10 minutes walk away. There is a small car park at the rear which can cater for 4 cars at most. We felt very welcomed and enjoyed... More

We had a three night stay at Lamppost Villa. It was perfectly situated for seeing everything in Bath on foot. The room was fine and the staff were friendly and attentive. The breakfast was lovely, we had the full English but there was plenty of choice. Thank you for a lovely stay, recommended.

We stayed here for one night on our way to Wales. I know Bath is priced and this was by no means expensive but the room was not up to the standard that most would expect as even quite basic. The shower room was very small..it would have been saved if it had had some hooks or shelves to hang/place... More

Me and my partner booked a last minute room at this hotel last Friday about 5 hours before our arrival.

Stayed for 2 nights in August 2016. Best thing about this place is the location. The room was ok. Small. Only 2 plugs. The bathroom was dated and the smallest I've ever seen. The shower wasn't great. The worst thing for me however was trying to sleep. Everytime anyone in the hotel flushed the toilet, used the shower or sink... More

Thank you Matt for taking the time out to send a review of your stay with us. You are correct in saying about the creaky floorboards and it is something we are at present trying to resolve with our maintenance team. I will look into the noisy water pipes as well. More

Room was in the basement. Had to walk outside along very narrow unlit walkway to get to room. Not accessible through the house. Room smelled of smoke...probably because there was a chair outside our room with 4 cigarette butts in it. Windows were open.

Very disappointed to read a negative review and in particular when it contains a number of inaccuracies. So much more productive to raise concerns with the management at the time. The room in particular has its own side entrance accessed by a normal footpath which does have its own lighting at either end. All bathroom lights are for safety reasons... More
