Superb room, very kind staff, situated in a beautiful area ,tucked away from the hustle and bustle, and was just a short taxi ride into Bath to see the Christmas markets. I would highly recommend. The breakfast was very good with all the ingredients locally sourced.

I stayed at Waterhouse as part of a business off site conference. It's an ideal tucked away location with amenities on site, and no interruptions or distractions apart from local wildlife (owls and other birds mostly). No complaints from me.......

Hotel set in tranquil and peaceful place near a beautiful valley. Very clean room with lovely view. All staff very helpful, polite and approachable. Breakfast was delicious with a huge choice from full English to fresh fruit salad, Danish pastries, yoghurts and cereals. All served with a smile Would recommend and like to return

When we arrived I wanted a shave. There was no plug in the plughole but I found it on a shelf below the basin. I put it in the plughole and then tried to get it back out. The mechanism was missing two vital components. I told them this at reception and they said they would get it looked at....

Waterhouse is a place for nature lovers and not quite for those planning to visit the city of Bath on a daily basis. The walk to the nearest bus stop will take about 10 minutes and is through a narrow un-paved lane past a horse ranch and on the main road with no proper pedestrian path. Also when it is...

Had a lovely stay in this hotel with my partner over the weekend. The hotel sits in a beautiful, peaceful setting and rooms are pretty and clean.
