Stayed here with my wife, Halloween weekend 2015 - comfortable, clean room, v. comfortable bed, high quality breakfast, nice and friendly/helpful reception staff - parking outside front door - all the sights just 5-10 mins walk away - Would stay again! p.s. They even posted my PJs back to me when I'd forgotten them! :-)

Everything a city hotel should be, comfortable, convenient and great customer service. More than helpful with my booking, posted back my charger foc when I stupidly left it behind and couldn't be clearer with their late checking in directions! Thank you.

Perfect location, mere minutes walk into the centre of Bath, excellent arrangements with parking (£8 for our whole stay), really nice room (5) although maybe a little noisy in the morning. A great selection for breakfast and really helpful/friendly staff. We could not have asked for a better stay, we would definitely stay there again!! :)

Rooms seemed very tiny given the cost per night, however, as Bath is such a desirable location for tourists perhaps this is the norm rate. Breakfast was very good, great choices. Staff friendly and obliging. Excellent location. No lift, this could be a problem for some given 5 flights of stairs to the top floor.

Thank you for reviewing our location, breakfast and service so highly. The Edgar Townhouse is a grade 1 listed townhouse just off the city centre. We do not have a lift due to our heritage status. If stairs are a problem for you, we have rooms located up or down 1 flight of stairs. Our newly decorated cosy and superior...

The main areas of the hotel are fairly basic, but our room (#1) was very cozy and stylish, if a little on the small side. It was spotlessly clean and offered a lovely view across the park. Breakfast was included and we were surprised to get table service with a full menu of hot items as well as self service...

Really nice hotel/townhouse, cheapest one i could find which was still in the town centre. It was easy to find considering we'd never been to Bath before. Lady on reception was very welcoming and friendly, helped us take our suitcases upstairs. Car parking was only £8 for whole stay, which was a lot cheaper than other places i looked at...
