We stayed at La Belle Abode for my sisters Hen Party. The house was everything I expected and more!! Such a beautiful place to stay with 20 women! Each room was decorated lovely, the kitchen had welcome treats, the bathrooms were luxuries and as for the stairs they helped us work off all the food and drink. This was such a good find and will defiantly be recommending to friends!!,
Stayed for a Hen weekend. All amenities there...beautifully clean. Tastefully decorated and a short walk to the city. Arranged over several floors, each room of a top quality for furniture and fittings. Kitchen large with nothing extra to bring other than food! A fantastic time was had and would thoroughly recommend.
I loved this house and our hen party was amazing, of course the guests make it what it is, but what a great setting!
The house was amazingly clean, large rooms, good facilities and comfortable!
The reason for not giving 5* is because our room (3rd floor facing garden/courtyard) had blinds that allowed light in, so after a heavy night, we were awoken by the light blazing through the windows/blinds at 5am. Maybe fit shutters, black out blinds or curtains?
Also, due to the toilet being next to our room, we got disturbed a lot by other house mates that were up later; we wanted to use the spare room in the basement, however it smelt really musty and damp and couldn't sleep due to it either.
It would definitely not put me off returning though and I would recommend the place to anyone! Fantastic!

I booked La Belle Abode for my sister's hen do and it surpassed all expectations! The photographs do not do it justice and we were totally amazed at the size of the house and more specifically the rooms. There were 19 girls staying and we had so much space there was never an issue of living on top of one another.
The kitchen is wonderfully equipped with everything you need and the bedrooms are extremely comfortable. The decoration and details are second to none and it all felt extremely opulent.
The location of the house is fantastic. Right in the centre of the Bath and we didn't have to get a taxi anywhere as everything was walking distance – we had dinner at OPA which I would definitely recommend.
It was such a fun weekend and I would recommend La Belle Abode to anyone visiting the city - I would also recommend those at Laura's Townhouse who made the whole process so effortless.

First of all, the apartment is gorgeous, stunning interiors and exteriors, beautifully decorated and care has obviously been taken with presentation. The place has a really nice feel and really feels like home while you are there. Heating is great, location is fantastic and there's a sense of importance in leaving this stately home in the morning and people staring at you, obviously thinking how lucky you are to be staying in this huge gorgeous place.
Beds were comfy and there was little noise from the rest of the house which was great for getting a good nights sleep.
A couple of minor downsides being that the oven is not big enough to cater easily for many guests. Also the wifi really only works on the ground level and drawing room level... Certainly didnt work on the top level. The stairs get a bit tiring but that is to be expected. The children's beds on the top floor are too narrow for adults, so that needs to be a consideration if you are planning for adults in that room. A few more sets of keys would have been useful, 3 sets between 15 people wasn't really enough. Parking is an issue, but I think that's the case with most accommodation in the city centre area.
Overall I would certainly recommend this accommodation and hope I am lucky enough to stay again!
