    Luxury B&B with a twist


    A nice hotel/B&B within walking distance to the town center (about 10 minutes to Southgate, the beginning of the shopping street, and maybe 14 minutes back as it's uphill). We paid £110 per night for a double bed, BATHroom and a great full English breakfast.
    The best bacon I've ever tasted and one of the softest towels....

    Unique Quality: Great garden inclunding an own area for playing petanque/boules. Nice view as the hotel is situated up in the hills of Bath.
    Free parking.
    Another funny twist is the house cat George (actually Georgette as it's a she), which comes visiting. We woke up with the cat sleeping in our bed... Lucky for us we like cats...

    Directions: Holloway area - minutes from the Town Centre.

    Comfort and Seclusion


    Hills surround the city of Bath. To the south of town, across the River Avon, lies the area described in NORTHANGER ABBEY as "....Beechen Cliff, that noble hill..."
    Located on the lower reaches of that noble hill is the aptly-named Paradise House Hotel. With its carefully maintained gardens and lovely view over the city, this very popular guest house seems like a bit of heaven on earth.

    No two rooms are alike. Ranging from a standard double to a glorious 4-poster turret suite, room rates vary correspondingly. (A kingbed mini-suite with whirlpool tub was L 95.) All receive the same attentive service from managers Mark and Rebecca and their staff.

    Unique Quality: Daily fresh flowers and linens in the breakfast room, a cosy fire in the sitting room, a personal TV/VCR in each room and full access to the beautiful gardens gives every guest the feeling of being welcomed into a cherished country home. The proprietors, Dave and Annie Lanz, also own nearby OLDFIELD'S Guesthouse, where guests receive the same personalized attention. Although a 'bit' distant from Bath city centre, the location is walkable - uphill- from the train and bus stations. If you have the time, climb to the park on top of Beechen Cliff for an unforgettable vista over Bath and its beautiful hills.

    Directions: Take the bus to Bear Flat and walk down Holloway approx. 1 Km

    The lovely bedroom


    This bedroom has a fantastic view over the back gardens and down towards the city of Bath. You can easily see Bath Abbey and most of the Royal Crescent from here!

    View of the gardens


    These gorgeous gardens are maintained by the hosts and a couple of hired gardners--you can stroll through them, or just sit and enjoy the view of Bath from the "backyard"!

    Luxurious B&B with fanastic view over Bath


    This is a listed Bath stone mansion, once one of the premiere private residences of Bath, and now a superbly run B&B. Fluffy towels, top grade soaps, relatively large bathrooms, great pillows and mattresses, no traffic noise at night.

    The hosts are a lovely, refined couple who take an active interest in their city and their guests' itineraries--lots of helpful information and lovely books about Bath in the drawing room.

    Unique Quality: The view over the city towards Bath Abbey is fantastic both at night and during the day--ask for one of the rooms with a city view. The room at the top-rear of the house can accommodate three easily, and four cozy people.

    As with most B&B's, there is no lift, but our luggage was taken up for us without our asking. Also, if you come without a car, there is a very steep walk up the hill from the rail station (about a 10-minute walk), but it's worth it for the view. Easy walk down into the city for all the major attractions.

    The breakfast is excellent, down to the fresh croissants, honey, and full cooked breakfast in a lovely dining room with classical music in the background.

    Directions: About 10 minutes from the train station.

Beautiful Hotel

by A TripAdvisor Member

We have just returned from a two night stay at the lovely Paradise House hotel in Bath. We booked up after seeing that the hotel was top in the tripadvisor list for Bath and were not dissappointed!

Although it doesn't look much from the outside, as soon as you walk through the door you can see a gorgeous view right down into the valley that Bath is situatuted in, and across all the way to the Royal Crescent. We stayed in room 12 which is out on its own and makes you feel like you've got the whole hotel to yourself. Lovely four poster bed and a jacuzzi bath (a bath with jets, don't expect too much!).

Although we didn't make it up for breakfast on the first morning, the next day was lovely. Quite a large choice of the usual cooked breakfasts plus cereal etc.

If you're planning on eating out i'd definitly recommend the Olive Tree restaurant in the Queensbury Hotel - one of the nicest meals I've ever had.

I'd definitly recommend the hotel to anyone, whether you're staying for two nights or two weeks!

Wonderful Stay in Paradise

by TripAdvisor Member time4travl

My husband and I stayed at the Paradise House Hotel for two nights. Upon our arrival, we were immediately led out to the garden where we were served tea and biscuits as we enjoyed the garden and view. We splurged on the room with the fabulous view of the city and wonderful bathroom (claw-foot tub and separate shower). The Moulton Brown products in the bathroom were quite nice as well. The room was very comfortable and we enjoyed soaking in the tub after sight-seeing all day.

The staff were very friendly and helpful throughout our stay (gave directions, confirmed dinner reservations, etc). Breakfast was varied and tasty (choice of continental or full English).

The outside of the hotel is a bit off-putting, but the rest of the property fully lives up to expectations. The large hill up to the hotel could be a problem for some but we were fine with it.

Overall, we loved this hotel and would not hesitate to stay here again.

Great place to stay

by TripAdvisor Member Everitt

My wife and I had 3 nights in Bath and chose the the Paradise House Hotel from comments posted on Trip Advisor. I agree with most of the reveiws. the Hotel is a lovely place to stay, with fantasic views of the city which can be best appreciated whilst strolling in the garden.

The hotel is under new management, Richard and Rachel are great, very welcoming and extremely helpful. Richard does a great breakfast!

Don't be put off by the road that the Hotel is on, this was the only disappointment, the pictures on the website are taken from the garden (not the road) which it isn't the most attractive of streets. The city centre is only a 10 minute walk away (or a short taxi ride- approx £4).

The hotel has a resident cat "George", he was lovely and is quite partial to sleeping in your room, if you let him!.

Had a couple of meals in the city; There is a great Italian resturant called "Martinis" on George St, or if you like Jazz, the Green Park Brasserie is a good place to eat, they have live Jazz on Weds, Thurs, Fri & Sat.

Overall , we had a wonderful time.

Wonderful stay.

by A TripAdvisor Member

After several noisy nights in our London B & B, the Paradise was a more than welcome change. The room was excellent, quiet and very comfortable for my wife, daughter and me. I would highly recommend the Paridise for anyone who wants to spend a little more for a wonderful time. My only suggestion is to take a taxi from the train station if you have luggage, the steep hill was difficult for the family with our heavy packs.

Don't pass this up!

by TripAdvisor Member MadrigalPortlandOR

We were there just a week ago for one night. We had a double room with French doors opening out on the garden. The room was beautiful, the garden was beautiful, the bed was comfortable, the breakfast delicious, the people friendly and the parlor cozy. Our only regret was we didn't see the resident cat! You won't regret staying here.
