Clean but dated
Stayed for a long weekend in October this year with my now ex-partner!
The room was booked very last minute by another local hotel as their boiler blew up. The owner of Leighton House was very friendly, as were all the staff we encountered and the rooms were extremely clean and spacious.
All that said, the room's pink floral decor was rather dated and the shower was more of a trickle!
Location wise, if you're not up to a hill walk don't choose this hotel. Not a problem for us, but if you spend a full day out in the town, the uphill walk may be a stretch for some people.
Extra nice thing was that there was a veggie option for breakfast which was great.
Would I go back? Had spending four days together not been the breaking factor for me and my other half, then yes, I probably would have revisited. Lovely clean establishement, comfortable beds, close enough to walk into town, and with parking.
Leighton House is lovely....
I've stayed at Leighton House three years in a row on holidays and brought different family members along at different times. Point being that I have seen several different rooms and they were all tasteful, pretty and clean.
I love room number 5 (It's BIG) with it's view of the Abbey lit up at night through the trees. Kingsized bed, big wardrobe. Excellent breakfast. You can order the big breakfast with eggs and rashers, tomato and puddings AND you can eat from the big sideboard with fruits, danish, juices, cereals, etc.
We have never had any bad experiences at all here so I was a bit surprised at the review that said it was not a good place. I suppose that it's all in what you are looking for. I don't care who owns the place. I'd like a clean, safe, attractive place with a good bed and nice towels, etc.
Also, there are only about six rooms in this house for guests so it's not that big.
Tariff is also quite good at 80 pounds per night for two with breakfast included. It IS up a hill but it's not too bad going up and easy walking to town downhill.
An Adequate Hotel
I cannot quite believe the other reviews I have read about this hotel! We asked for a family room - what we got was a double and then a camp bed (which squeaked)!
I would not call this hotel welcoming at all - we saw the owner as we arrived and then as we left on the Sunday to pay our bill.
However, there are three good points about this hotel: it is relatively clean, it's only about a 10 minute walk into the City centre and the breakfasts are quite tasty.
I would not stay here again as I found it lacking in any sort of charm. If you want a good hotel in Bath with character and a friendly welcome, stay at The Tasburgh.
Great B & B in Bath
If you're looking for a comfy, welcoming, tasteful place to stay, this is it. The "hill" isn't so bad, and the walk to Bath Abbey is less than 15 minutes. The breakfast was tasty, and we had no problems with the staff. The daytime traffic on the street is heavy, but is very quiet at night. Leave your car in their lot, and walk into town - no hassles with parking and good exercise. We will definitely stay at the Leighton, if we return to Bath.
Nice Little Bed and Breakfast
This Bed and Breakfast was very nice. The owner was very helpful and nice, but the breakfast staff were not that friendly. This B and B was rated as a 5 star, but I would give it a 4, as I have stayed in nicer 3 stars. It is at the top of a huge hill, so if you plan on walking make sure you are prepared. I would forego the walk if you have luggage. A taxi from the city centre is about 5gbp. A pleasant stay, however next time I will stay closer to the city centre.
I spent a weekend here with a group of friends and it was excellent. Rooms are spacious and comfortable and the owners very helpful and knowledgeable about the area. Breakfast fabulous! We'll definitely return.
A Great Weekend
I just spent the Weekend in Bath, staying at Leighton House and I had a brilliant stay. It's a beautiful location with luxurious rooms, a vibrant garden and really pleasant, friendly staff. The breakfast was especially nice with plenty of variety - even for a semi-veggie! Thanks to Rhona and all the staff for a wonderful break. I'll certainly come again.
Great place to stay
Excellant place to stay, always a warm welcome. Breakfast wonderful and the owenrs are very knowledgable about What's On in Bath.
A comfortable place
I have stayed at Leighton House on a number of occassions on business trips, I have always found the accommodation comfortable and the staff friendly.
I recommend it to anybody who wants something more homely than an anonymous room in a chain hotel
Loved Leighton House
A very comfortable and well presented B&B. Rooms are tastly decorated and clean. Nice homely atmosphere. Breakfast excellent, especially the fresh fruit salad platter! Owners have extensive knowledge of local restaurants and 'what's on'.
5 mins walk to Bath centre Have stayed several times over the years, always the same excellent service and attention to detail

Here we are in Malmesbury, the "Queen of the hilltop towns" and reportedly the place of the oldest continuous settlement in England. King Athelstan died here in 709 and was buried in the Abbey, which is virtually next door to where we are staying in a home exchange organised by Trish and Ray.
It's an old house, over three levels and quite comfortable despite its plumbing issues.
We all love Malmesbury. The ...
... way to worship. The boys who sang, all had such beautiful voices. It was crazy that every single one of them could sing better than me.. I wish I had an ounce of their talent. It was also in a very beautiful old building. Man, I am going to miss Oxford. The last day of our break, we went to the White Cliffs of Dover. They are in England, not Ireland haha. There was a lot of confusion about that. Dover is actually one of the busiest ports going to France. It ...
Shopping day. Chris and Dad started the day off at the Bath Thermal Spa. Both decided to do the welcome package which gave them access to the roof pool, the steam baths and the inside thermal bath. Apparently the spa was brilliant. Meanwhile Rebecca, Mum and I enjoyed the shops Bath had to offer. When the boys joined us we ...
... castle, then climbing very steep staircases to the headland where the castle ruins can be found. The sun was out and again it was hard work. Great views from the top but very little remains of this 12th century castle of Arthurian legend. Fortunately you could pay to get a lift in a landrover back up to the village where he had excellent Cornish icecream. When we had how strength back we set off again this time to the moors and Jamaica Inn ...
... br> We stopped because of multiple reasons. A long time on the road, increasing numbers of tourists as we got into full summer and, not unimportantly, things to do at home. So there is still a lot left to see and I think it won't be long before we are off again.
For both of us this is the return to the UK after 29 years being expatriates and for me of course the start of my retirement. It's going to take a lot of getting used to. The next ...
