This morning Graham and Christine (old family friends of the Eads) joined us for breakfast. It was a full house with Nicky, Ben and Abigail also staying. Poor Ben was all upset when he had to go off to school. Must have felt like he was missing out on all the fun. We headed over to Wells markets and wandered over to feed the ducks and swans in the moat. I never get tired of visiting Wells Cathedral. It's so pretty. It was freezing again today and I thought for sure ...
... floor had sauna's. This was amazing. Four different scented round sauna's (Ylang Ylang, Sandalwood, Eucalyptus and Menthol, and lemon). Each one had stone benches around the inside perimeter which could have sat around 20 people. They were all really hot though and you could only stand around 10 mins in each. On the perimeter of this room there were cold showers you could cool down with, and deck chairs where you could relax in and chill out. The first floor was ...
... today. Hands needed gloves, and heads needed hats. We found respite in a greasy spoon for lunch, then walked back along the beach and picked up some local fudge and toffee for gifts. It's funny how the ocean is about half a kilometre from the shore. And it's not called Weston Super Mud for no reason! On the way home we called in to Garden World where the ...
... shopping. We stopped for a hot chocolate at Starbucks, then picked up Nicky's birthday present (a nice watch). Steve took Jonah down to his old Rugby club to catch up with some old friends, before joining us back home for lunch. Jen and I headed over to Shepton Mallet again in the afternoon to pick up some Xmas presents from Argos. Nothing much else happening today. Only other thing to note was the kids sleeping in till 7am. Think we're over the jet ...
... to eat" (there being a dearth of pubs and suchlike in downtown Bath). We lit upon Jamies Italian (which we really enjoy back in Sydney) and gave it a go. Let us, at this juncture, say ‘We gave it a go’, and leave it at that. Giving up an hour later we stomped around the corner and even though ‘Sole Pizza’ only had two people in it, we were so desperate we entered it’s portal. Fantastic. Great service. Pizza ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Paradise House Bath
Stayed here May 11,12,13. Arrived via train from London. Got a rent-a-car in Bath and drove to the Hotel - which was a little difficult to do, given this was my first English driving experience, the narrow streets and its somewhat obscure location. We were given a friendly greeting and given tea and snacks in the beautiful garden. Our room was "basic" but very clean and nice and the view over the gorgeous gardens into downtown Bath was superb. Breakfasts were outstanding and the staff and owner were very helpful and friendly with everything. There might be other great places in Bath, but none better.
We spent 3 nights, April 21-24, at the Paradise House and found it to be everything we had hoped for. A taxi ride up the hill from the train station was fast and easy. Our 2nd floor room, #3, was large, with a nice view of the city and hills. The huge, recently redone bathroom, with a large whirlpool tub, round glass shower and white tile, was a wonderful change from the tiny London hotel bathroom we just left. Sitting in the bay window looking out at the green hills surrounding Bath, was quite peaceful and relaxing. Breakfast, overlooking the tiered garden, was excellent and set us up for our explorations of Bath. The Paradise House will see us again on our next trip to this facinating city.
Elegant idllyic spiritual
there was an almost spiritual quality to our 3 day/night stay at Paradise House.Our elegant ground floor room with a draped four-poster bed , a beautiful glass bath/shower, multilayed window curtains,a huge landscaped garden ,and a door that led outside to what has to be one of the most spectacular views of the city of Bath and surrounding countryside was just part of our wonderful experience.While I did not see any of the upper floor rooms and the hotel was a bit hard to find by car at night it was a quick walk to the town center.Highly reccommended try to see a photo of your actual room and its view before booking.Excellent FULL breakfast.
Relaxing and enjoyable
After 4 nights in London, we welcomed the relaxing and serene atmosphere at Paradise House Hotel. We stayed in Room #1, which had a 4 poster king bed and ensuite shower and bath tub. The room did not have a view, but it made up in comfort and beauty. The room was top-notch in European standards and above average for USA standards (I only mention this for those of you who have not traveled around Europe and do not know about the difference in standards). We found the location was excellent - about 10 minutes from the Roman Baths and Bath Abbey.
Elderly people or those with physical handicapps may find the walk to the hotel strenuous. The breakfast was wonderful and very filling. We drove to the hotel and had no problems parking. It is a great location also for touring the Cottswolds or Stonehenge/Salisbury. I would definitely approve of this hotel.
Sets the tone for Bath
Recently returned from our first visit to Bath. The Paradise House really set the tone for the whole Bath experience. Good location, great rooms, excellent friendly service, fantastic views, and the best breakfasts we had on our trip. They have a liquor license and we enjoyed having a bottle of wine by the fireplace in the parlor. The managers made some nice restaurant recommendations and we found some on our own (try the Salamander next door to the Firehouse Rotesserie). If you arrive at the train station, take an inexpensive taxi ride up the hill with your luggage.When you leave, its an easy walk back down the hill.
Our room was a pure delight with beautiful furnishings, a nice view, a modern shower (what do you expect in a town called 'Bath') sink and toilet. The surrounding area is very quiet so you'll get a peaceful nights sleep.
Better than the room is the staff. These people are incredibly friendly and helpful and made me feel like they were truely glad that I was there. Even if the rooms weren't nice, it would be worth staying here, simply to experience the charm and good nature of the people who work at the hotel.
The location is on the same side of town as the bus and train stations plus the Roman Baths (about a 10 minute walk), shopping (8 minute walk) and dining (8 minutes) which is very convenient. The directions on the website got us right to the door. It is up a bit of a hill (get a taxi if you've got much luggage) but you wouldn't have that view without it and it gives you an excuse to have dessert or another pint of England's finest brews.
The room we stayed in was exactly what I was hoping for. It was beautifully furnished, and the view of Bath was fantastic. The sitting area by the fireplace allowed us to have a place to relax and enjoy the company of each other. The owners were very informative and helpful and made us feel right at home, including the one year old we had with us!
Paradise at the Paradise House Hotel
When somewhere calls itself the Paradise House Hotel it can go one of two ways. Either it's going to be some absolute hell hole with the most ironic name, or it truly can be paradise. Paradise House in Bath is the latter. A gorgeous house beautifully decorated and staffed by the most helpful and welcoming people. We experienced a wonderful four days wandering around Bath and relaxing in the peaceful garden with fantastic views over the city. I would be back here in a shot, if only I had some annual leave left to take!
A charming experience!
We stayed here for two nights in July, and were delighted with the experience. We reserved two rooms (one for parents, the other for 3 kids), and were given two on a "private" staircase one floor apart. The rooms were charming, comfortable, and spacious by UK standards, and we loved the tea service in the rooms. The breakfasts were delicious, the staff was quite friendly and made our children feel right at home. The garden is peaceful and beautiful, with breathtaking views of Bath (from the hotel's location high on a hill). The kids especially enjoyed looking for snails and frogs in the lily pond! It's a short walk into the city (the uphill return does provide an aerobic workout, and you probably don't want to make the walk from the train station with luggage). We would definitely return!
What a lovely house. Owners are super friendly and full english breakfast delicious. We stayed in room 5 with a terrific view through a bay window. If you stay here say hi to "George" the curious house cat!
Minutes from town but does require an uphill walk to house. Don't miss the bizarre Bath tour at night.
