Peter made booking with him very easy...he even recommended a fantastic car service we used to pick us up from the airport and bring us to Bath. The room was comfortable and the breakfast was outstanding. Peter...

Stayed two nights with Peter and he makes you feel like it is your home. His advice on area attractions and restaurants was "spot-on" and the breakfast the Lily prepared were excellent. The location is excellent, close to the Royal Crescent and a short walk to the Roman Bath and Abbey. They also provide free Wifi. I highly recommend that...

Came for a February half term getaway with my teen daughter and a ten yr old son. Peter and his staff could not have been more friendly and welcoming. The breakfasts were wonderful with nicely presented fresh fruit, cereals, juices, yoghurts, loads of toast and wonderful cooked breakfasts. We stayed in the family room which was perfect. And all this...

I stayed here for several days in May a couple of years ago and neglected to write a review. I feel a bit guilty, because this was a great place and a highlight of a 2-week trip as far as lodging goes. Beautiful, spacious room. Clean. Awesome breakfasts.
