    Historical Traveler Reviews Oldfields House Bath

    Not worthy of 5 diamonds

    from

    Disappointed as the website gives it much hype. Room 9 sold as garden view! Only if someone holds your feet while you lean out the little window to see a patch of lawn at the bottom. Also had the hardest bed I have ever slept on, coupled with cheap foam pillow cases, so not condusive to a good nights rest. Breakfast was very good - food was good quality and served by cheerful, helpful staff, but dining room and general interior on the whole could use a make-over by a good designer. Hotel overall had an old fashioned and cheap decor rather than the luxury georgian style it warranted. The contemporary loft room was more like cheap Ikea than contemporary style as portrayed on website! All in all, not bad, but over priced and over hyped by its website.

    I want to go back!

    from

    We were in room 10 which was a very nicely decorated, CLEAN comfortable room with a superb bathroom and private balcony looking over the city. The bathroom featured a jetted tub/shower and heated towel rack. The walk into bath is minimal but Oldfields is on the top of a hill. This was not a problem at all for my wife and me but after the third day my eleven year old niece was dreading the walk up the hill after long all day walking in Bath, (which is also hilly). The breakfasts were great and the staff was friendly but not obtrusive. If you are looking for a comfortable home away from home, you won't be dissapointed staying at Oldfields.

    We had a problem with our room on arrival, this was dealt with immediately and satisfactorily. The room ( 17, Jacuzzi and 4 poster ) was perfect and the staff, ever pleasant and smiling. The breakfasts were good too and the CD player and Classical music in the room a great finishing touch.

    Nice accomodations in Bath

    from

    Recently spent two nights at Oldfield's and was pleased. The hotel is nice and loacted very close to downtown - albeit on a good sized hill. Honestly, it's a little walk, but the views of the city are spectacular and after wonderful meals - a nice way to walk off some calories.

    We had a nice room with a king-sized bed, which made the room a little cramped. A queen sized bed would be more appropriate for the size of the room. Bathroom was very nice and immaculately clean. Double paned windows - but we had them open to let in some air. Minor traffic noise, but that did not give us any problem.

    Breakfasts were outstanding! Ask the hosts for restaurant recommendations - they sent us to affordable (for Bath) and excellent places in town.

    All in all - a very nice place to stay and we could heartily recommend.

    Loved Bath, Enjoyed Oldfields

    from

    A beautiful place, lovely view in a historic city. While Bath is not the place I'd spend a week, it is definately worth a day or two and this is a lovely place to see it from. Walk down the hill to the city in the evening for dinner and drinks, let a taxi bring you back, no climbing, no driving after drinking. All in all, a WONDERFUL place to spend some time!

    Gorgeous -- make sure to book one of the rooms with the jacuzzi bath!

    from

    Everything about Oldfields is tasteful and classy. I felt like I was staying in the home of someone fabulous. It's full of tiny touches that make your visit that much more enjoyable, such as having a stereo in your room and tea/coffee-making facilities. For any and all clean freaks, it is immaculate. The best part -- by far -- is their breakfast, which changed my opinion of English cuisine. It is well worth getting up early for. My only complaint is its location, which is at the top of a hill. It takes about 10 minutes of walking up-hill to reach. I would get a taxi if you've arrived at the train station with bags. But, once you're up there, the view is so lovely.

    Rooms well decorated.

    from

    Warm welcome on arrival.Hotel and decoration was beautiful.Rooms Spacious and comfortable.Breakfast was delicious.Nothing was too much trouble.Will definately be visiting again.

    Book early !

    from

    This is a lovely hotel/B&B situated a short walk from the centre, the hill is quite steep on the way back but don't let that put you off. We had the room at the very top of the hotel with a great view over the city and country around. Friendly staff, very clean and a great breakfast. Not many rooms so make sure to book early.

    A Rare Gem

    from

    A lovely, quiet hotel, just a few minutes walk to city centre. Would highly recommend taking a taxi from train station as the hotel is located on a rather steep hill. Exceptional breakfast, with champagne offered on Saturday morning. Staff were all very helpful and friendly.

    The only negative thing that I could say was that the bathroom was more of a closet.

    Oldsfield B&B

    from

    I would look for something a little closer to town next time. The walk uphill can be difficult but not impossible. The breakfast was exceptional, but not out for long, so it keeps you on a tight schedule. The best part was the clean rooms and especially the bathrooms which seemed newly remodeled and even had towel warmers.

    I was up early again, too excited to sleep. Showered and dressed I headed down for a coffee at my new favourite coffee house across the road. By eight we were in a cab and on our way to Paddington Station. We had breakfast in the first class lounge on platform one. In no time at all it was time to head to platform five to join our train. Within a …

    After lunch we went to the 500 year old Abbey. It was bombed by Germany in World War II in retaliation for the Allied bombing of history sites in Germany. The Abbey was all but destroyed, however it was restored in the 1950s and 60s and it ...

    ... to England as we had to contend with traffic jams, a shortage of parking and hoards of foot traffic in and around the streets. The Roman bath's are the main attraction here, so by arriving in the middle of the day we pretty much were guaranteed of sharing the experience within a jostle of people surrounding us. Despite this, the baths are worth a visit and the audio guide provided very interesting commentary outlining geology that resulted in a hot ...

    Over all it went really well and I'm feeling a lot more prepared about what we're going to be doing when we get out there.
