Honestly couldn't of asked for a better place to stay! After arriving in Bath, we went straight to our hotel the Redcar! We immediately left! As we could not stay there! So avoid that place at all cost! We looked on trip advisor and came across Edgar Townhouse, we went straight there as it was around the corner! Amazing staff,...

Perfectly located to get to the rugby ground - the East gate entrance is a two minute walk away! Aside from that, the welcome we received was very warm - The Edgar had lovely comfortable, warm and cosy rooms. Nicely appointed and all very clean and tidy. Bathroom too was a very generous size. We were fortunate enough to be...

We have just stayed at The Edgar Townhouse for the night. It is clean and comfortable and excellent value for money. The location is brilliant and you can park for 8 for the day. The staff are friendly and helpful and the breakfast is very good. I would highly recommend this hotel if visiting Bath.

Booked a two night stay at the Edgar Townhouse the day before we arrived and we were pleasantly surprised. The location is great, Great Pulteney Street is a beautiful street and only a ten minute walk from the city centre. We booked the cosy double room and it was exactly that. It felt very comfortable with lovely decor but because...

easy access to town centre, ground floor rooms small but perfectly usable, clean and modern shower room. Friendly staff, ample breakfast with lots of different choices. Parking is in the street, some were lucky and got a place outside, we had a short walk.

Great location, close to shops/restaurants etc and the parking for £8 for the whole stay was a definite bonus. Lovely full English breakfast. We stayed in a 'cosy double' and it was just that. Would definitely stay again.

Hotel is in a lovely street, in walking distance of town. Pleasant and helpful staff, hotel is clean and well decorated throughout. Our room was on lower ground floor and on one of the three nights we stayed could hear floorboards creaking with movement above, during the night. Comfortable bed. Good choice of breakfast. Wifi in all rooms. Shower in...

We arrived in Bath late around 4pm. It was getting dark and we'd already got lost, so we parked the car and followed our nose into the town centre where the Christmas market was in full swing. We wandered into the information Bureau who were very helpful and booked the Edgar Townhouse for us. Our room on the top floor..it...

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...
