Historical Traveler Reviews One Three Nine Bath
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

We knew it was Ben Disraeli's country pad but had no idea it had played such a huge part in the War effort.
The dingy little map rooms, set up in what used to be some sort of ice house bunker, were home to map-makers creating intricate maps of Germany to be used in British bombing raids.
The intricate patterns of the formal gardens were almost as fascinating.

Once we landed, it took forever to get through passport control, but once I was through I collected my bag almost immediately and made my way through to arrivals.

We got into what looked like a long line but really wasn't that bad. The temple was really cool and I'm glad we made this stop. Katie was pretty tired, and I was hot (being that I was still ...
