This bed and breakfast is quite unique. You really do feel like part of the family and as if it is your home for the duration of your stay. The rooms are in a glorious Regency townhouse in Sydney Place, the same street in which Jane Austen once lived. The family occupy the whole building and although it has every possible mod con (including the most fantastic showers!) it still retains much of its original character. The rooms are spotlessly clean and the hosts - Julian and Mechthi - are charming, friendly and knowledgeable, yet never intrusive. For me, returning to this beautiful, welcoming home of an evening was as much a part of the Bath experience as visiting the sights during the day. The hostess is always smiling and positive and seems genuinely thrilled to see all her guests. She prepares either an Austrian breakfast or the full English. Austrian is my personal favourite, you are free to choose muesli, yoghurt, toast, cheese, fruit, eggs etc., and the hostess prepares dainty Austrian cakes or a little croissant. We ate breakfast in the conservatory which has views over the lovely garden and a pretty neighbouring church. I can't imagine staying anywhere else in Bath!
