All good. Anon 24/9/21

Fantastic location

Fantastic location, the apartment was clean and tidy and had everything we needed. Charley was there to meet us in arrival and gave us some restaurant recommendations which turned out to be great. 21-25/8/21

Perfect location

A lovely place to stay in a historic and – thankfully for us – peaceful location just North of the centre of Bath. The flat itself was clean and cosy, and has everything you need, and we were greeted by Charley who very kindly gave us a local-resident’s guide to the places to eat and visit in the city. We felt really at home during our stay, and this added to a very lovely trip to a place well worth visiting.

Just perfect

Great spot, just what u want from an Airbnb, clean good furniture etc 28/9-2/10/22

Perfect location

Everything we could have needed and more, very well equipped, clean and comfy. Perfect location to walk to everything in the city but far enough out that it wasn’t noisy. Helen met us at the property and gave us such a lovely welcome.  Duchovny 24-26/7/23
