Very nice hotel, close to the city. (10 minutes walk). Set in a grand avenue. Classic Bath building. Our room was on the 2nd floor. Note that there is no lift. Room was quite small, but perfectly comfortable. Views overlooking the park. Staff very friendly and helpful. Somewhat expensive for this type of hotel, but I guess this is what...

Typically old fashioned traditional English bed and breakfast type hotel ideally located in Bath's grandest street. Lovely and quaint inside, the staff very helpful. Bedrooms were a good size, looking out onto the rugby ground and the re-furbished bathroom was very modern. Overall a good night's sleep!

There is a wide range of breakfast options on the menu with locally sourced eggs, sausages, etc. My favourite over the four night stay was scrambled eggs and salmon. This was always well cooked...

My mother and I stayed at The Edgar Townhouse in early July and had a great experience. We stayed for three nights and everyone was very nice. It is about a 15-20 minute walk from the hotel to the center of town. Breakfast was delicious and the folks running the place were kind enough to let us have an earlier-than-usual...

Nice quiet location close to the city centre. Friendly staff and clean/quiet rooms. Good breakfast and option to leave your suitcases in the hotel when your departure is later. Try not to have top floor rooms due to the small view from the window however its still a very decent townhouse.
