Luxury B&B with a twist

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 30, 2005

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

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 5, 2004

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

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)

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

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 8, 2004

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.
