The host, Peter, is very friendly and really went out of his way to help us whenever he could. He also gave lots of good recommendations for places to...

I'll start with the punch line: Nearly 500 reviewers can't be wrong; this is a great place to stay. That said, my wife and I did all we could to get off on the wrong foot by arriving a few hours earlier than Peter's well-published early check-in time of 11:30 (We were arriving from Southampton on a cruise, and we...

We stayed for two nights at Marlborough House at the beginning of our holiday in England. Peter was super accommodating to assist in advance with logistics getting from Heathrow to Bath (Shelly's car service is highly recommended). Our room was clean, bed was comfy, breakfast was the best we had in England. Marlborough House was directly across from Victoria Park,...

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.
