Wonderful B and B

from

The Badminton Villa B and B is a great place to stay. It is located outside the city, up a steep hill. Cab fare from the train staion to the villa is about 4 pounds.

The couple who run the B and B, Sue and John, are very accomodating. They serve a great breakfast. The rooms are lovely, and the gardens outside the Villa are beautiful.

The only drawback is that it is outside town. Too far to walk to town, and too far, and steep, to walk back. But stores, attractions, seem to close up at 5 pm in Bath, anyway.

Wonderful B&B in Bath, England

from

If you're looking for a B&B in Bath, try the Badminton Villa. Hosts Sue and John Burton are very welcoming and gracious, the house is lovely with a wonderful garden and a nice view of the city. It is within walking distance of the city and is a comfortable, quiet retreat.

Great Breakfast and Hospitality

from

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Badminton Villa. John and Sue were welcoming and helpful. They gave us info on restaurants, places to shop etc and what to see. Our room was comfortable with all the necessities - ie tea, coffee and a TV! Thank you so much for your hospitality and we will recommend you to our friends, should they decide to visit Bath.

Choice

from

Peaceful it ain't. I like a quiet restful peaceful hotel as I work very hard and need R & R

You don't get that here.

The world is full of choice and Badminton is noisy not tranquil.

EVERYTHING WE WANTED IN A B&B

from

Think of everything you want in a B&B.

CLEANLINESS.........LOCATION.........A GOOD BREAKFAST......GREAT HOSTS..........REGIONAL KNOWLEDGE.....REASONABLE PRICES...If these are important to you, stay at the Badminton in Bath.

John and Sue are fantastic people, who go out of their way for the comfort of guests. John will pick you up at the Train Station, may even drive through a hilltop park on the way to the B&B for an splendid view of the city, carry your luggage to an upper room. and on a rainy day, may offer to take you to the center of town.

We take exception to the previous reviewer regarding being quizzed upon arrival. To the contrary, John gave us maps, tour suggestions, and other valuable information, including a wonderful all day tour to Stonehenge with Mad Max Tours.

The downtown area of Bath is a busy, bustling college town, with thousands of people on the streets. We are glad we chose the Badminton, located in a quiet neighborhood, close to town (less than 10 minute walk), and about 3 GBP for a return taxi ride up the hill.

Room 2 was our choice, large and comfortable, with a sweeping view of city and surrounding region. We did notice some rooms were smaller, and felt spending a few pounds more for a view room was well worth it.

At the end of our stay, we felt like family, and count John and Sue among new friends. John even took us to the train station on our departure day.

Very pleasent

from

I only stayed for one night but the owners made me feel very welcome and the room was very clean and comfortable. A true British B & B.

A Lovely Place to Stay

from

John, the friendly host of Badminton Villa, welcomed us into the guest lounge and gave us a wonderful introduction to the attractions of Bath. The lounge was full of guidebooks, maps and restaurant menus for the use of guests. Our room was large and nicely furnished and had a beautiful view of the city. We left our car in the car park and walked to and from the city each day. During our trip we stayed at a number of four star guesthouses and Badminton Villa was our favorite. We will definitely stay here again.

Welcoming, Convenient, Lovely

from

My recent stay at Badminton Villa was one of the highlights of a recent solo travel weekend to Bath. John and Sue made me feel very welcome, and John thoughtfully helped me to tailor my visit to Bath for my particular interests (e.g., photography). He was kind and helpful with maps and suggestions about restaurants and tours. Sue's breakfasts were excellent and she has great stories about local events. Their garden is peaceful and inviting with a great view of the city from high on a hill. It was approximately a 10-minute easy walk to the city from the house. My room was gorgeous, comfortable, and well-sized. I highly recommend this B&B, especially for travelers who appreciate attention to detail, who are looking for a peaceful retreat, and who and welcome excellent suggestions from their hosts.

Very Welcoming

from

Badminton Villa is a lovely B&B and the owners are extremely welcoming. They picked us up from the station and gave a an in-dept guide to the city when arrived at the B&B. We stayed in one of the smaller rooms in the roof, which was very cosy and clean. The B&B felt homely and comfortable and the cooked English breakfast was more than enough to get you started for a day sight-seeing around Bath! We really enjoyed at stay there and the friendlyness of the hosts made our trip to Bath that more special.

Badminton Villa was a great place to stay!

from

I would definitely reccomend staying at the Badminton Villa while in Bath! John and Sue were wonderful hosts! They gave us maps of Bath and surrounding areas, suggested great places to visit and eat, and the breakfasts at the B&B were delicious! It is a quaint little B&B that is a short walk from the city center of Bath! The Badminton Villa was a lovely place to stay!

... s biggest gorge with cliffs rising up to 450 ft. We were surprised how big it was and also how many people including rows of tourist buses were there. We had never heard of it. A very enjoyable day.
Wednesday looked like rain so we stayed home. When it cleared we walked downtown. We knew it would be steep but it only took us ten minutes so it was easier than we expected. We found the railway station and bought our tickets to Birmingham ...

Noah's Ark Farm Park - Church outing.

A travel blog entry by duncan.murray on Jul 11, 2015

Great trip down to Bristol, lovely air conditioned coach. The views through the Forest of Dean were spectacular. Crossing the river, over the bridge was breathtaking, as the tide was out, so you could see the extent that the river comes up. At Noah's ark, they seemed to have upgraded some of the facilities, which is really good. Thanks to Jeff for the cup of coffee, well ...

After spending a while at the baths, including a short guided tour of part of it, I headed out to grab a quick bite to eat, before making my way back towards the baths for a 2pm walking tour. The guides that give these tours are all volunteers, ...

... the Park and Ride - what a great invention!! Caught the bus into Bath and joined the hordes of other tourists at the Roman Baths. The kids all had an activity sheets and their audio guides to follow. After the Baths I had a sneaky look in the Shops while Shelton brought a TomTom (yippee no more navigating for me!!) Bath is a beautiful City, I wish we’d had more time to explore but we’re on a mission got to get to Paignton for dinner with friends ...
