This place is at the same time beautiful, bizarre, elegant, eclectic, authentic, chaotic, convenient and charming. There are two types of B&B - some are like mini hotels and others are homestays in people's houses - this is definitely the latter. The house is a beautiful example of a typical Georgian Bath house with many original features, stripped wooden floors, period furniture and interesting bits and pieces. so the experience is very authentic. We had the larger room which is huge and has a massive private bathroom adjacent. The room is at the front of the house which is on a busy road so we found it noisy - we live in the country and are used to silence. If you like a really homely approach to your stay experience then you'll really enjoy your stay. The house is just five or so minutes' walk to the centre of Bath so very convenient. Overall it was an interesting experience and the place did grow on us during our stay.
