Day Two - Chard to Bath

A travel blog entry by lisawesty

In the morning we visited the Chard council chambers and the Chard museum. Chard was a town famous for it's lace making. This wasn't lace like doilies but it seemed more like scrim, made on huge looms. At times it was prosperous and others the work was not there. It created tensions and there was a "Lace Riot", as workers wages and conditions …

In the footsteps of Miss Jane

A travel blog entry by lalcorn

Bath is truly beautiful, and much hillier (sp?) than I had imagined. Why? I don't know. I guess I hadn't thought about it. It's nonetheless easy to get around, and is very interesting. Our hotel is wonderfully situated right near the Pulteney Bridge, though the actual hotel is not spectacular, except from the outside. It's actually run by the …

Wotton to tormarton

Great nights sleep, foggy in morning and didn't clear till after 3 in the afternoon. Easy day 15 miles and 3000 ft of ascent. Saw two really good forts. Walked through a very scenic park apparently owned by the vacuum guy(Dyson). B&B closed on arrival so sat in pub writing ...

Stonehouse to wotton under edge

B&B was ok in the end, smelt damp when I arrive. Took longer route along canal. Lots of ups and downs today and lots of long barrows including hetty peglers tump which you needed a torch for because you went in so far. Climbed tyndale beacon which got narrower and narrower as you got higher, not much space at the top. Weather good again, a bit cooler today ...

Devon and Cornwall

... the village if they are staying in one of the accommodation facilities so traffic is limited. We also took the opportunity to go to some of the towns on the Northern coast of Cornwall, Padstow, where Rick Stein has his famous Seafood restaurant and Port Isaac where the Doc Martin series was filmed. Each was beautiful in their own right although definitely more ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Carfax Hotel Bath

    Good rooms and good location

    from

    Stayed there for a midweek 3 day special with my brother in two single rooms. Clean rooms, good service and fair breakfast. I would recommend it as a comfortable place to stay in the town centre, and not too expensive.

    Excellent and friendly hotel

    from

    I booked a stay at this hotel on the strength of the reviews in Trip Advisor- particularly the " passed the mother-in-law test " one,as I wanted a hotel to which to take my elderly mother for a few days. I needed a lift, a decent sized non-smoking twin room and to be not too far from the centre but far enough to be quiet. I got all of these together with friendly helpful service. The room was very spacious and well maintained ( it was a superior twin) and overlooked a park at the back of the hotel so was very quiet. The street is one of the most beautiful in Bath just minutes from the Pulteney Bridge. Breakfasts were far superior to regular cooked hotel breakfasts and there is an emphasis on fairtrade and locally sourced produce . All in all a great find.

    The Carfax Hotel passed the mother-in-law test

    from

    When I was looking for a hotel in Bath, I was most concerned with finding one that would be appropriate for my mother-in-law, a well-traveled woman of extremely high standards for cleanliness and comfort. I selected the Carfax hotel based on the positive reviews on this site, and I am delighted to report that it lived up to its reputation. The rooms were super clean, comfortable, and nicely decorated. Our room, #17, was spacious even by American standards. My mother-in-law was in #41, a double room that they booked for her at the single rate, which was more typical of European sized rooms, yet not painfully small. There was plenty of room to walk around the bed, and ample storage. Both bathrooms were spotless and well maintained - no moldy grout, no chipped tiles - everything looked brand new. There were towel warmers filled with new, fluffy towels. The dining room and lounge were beautiful. No tired, worn upholstery or carpeting anywhere.

    Very fine and well located hotel - h.recommend

    from

    I don't often go back and fill in responses to hotels I have found online, but I saw the reviews on the this hotel on tripadvisor and chose it partly because of the reviews, and after staying 4 nights I had to add my own two cents worth...oh I told David the receptionist I would!

    Wicked Place

    from

    when to bath for a weekend. searched the net for reasonably priced hotel for a couple of hours, and came up with this one.

    clean, roomy, friendly and massive breakfast...couldnt eat all they gave me!

    The room was cool, but its real handy for the town and clubs...and there is a code thingy for the dor, so when we got in at 2am is wasnt a problem ;0)

    fit girl on desk too! dEnZiNe

    Nice rooms - good stay

    from

    stayed 2 nights over a weekend. room very nice, firm bed, good TV and toilet facilities, shower a little slow. Breakfast - buffet and cooked had a good choice, and I liked the local produce idea. car park was full first night when I arrived, but parking on street was fine as they gave me a permit. Very well placed for the town and the university. I will stay again to go christmas shopping as the shops are fab - never enough time in Bath to shop properly.Treena

    I'd go back - it's really good

    from

    i stayed with my wife on a three day break which wasn't real cheap, but for what we got was brilliant. We stayed in room 18 at the front which was very big and georgian looking.

    We didnt use the lounge much but it was nice too.

    there is a free car park and the breakfast menu was the best I've had in an English hotel - it had a great choice and was all made with local ingredients. My wife Claire made a big thing out of that.

    I would recommend this hotel to anyone. Its close to everything too.

    Very Good Value for money

    from

    The Carfax is a very clean and well positioned hotel. We parked in the carpark for free which was great as my husband doesnt walk so well, and had an absolutely beautiful first floor double room on the front of a traditional Georgian street.The breakfast choice and food was great. The staff were helpful in getting taxis and tourist information.We shopped around for rooms while we were in Bath, and were shown awful bedrooms which were much more expensive than the Carfax. Don't get ripped off like my son who stayed at the hotel opposite at almost twice the price - stay at the Carfax which is excellent value for money. It made our holiday special.Kitty Pulber

    Great Hotel

    from

    Stayed at the Carfax, May, 2003. The location is very handy to everything without being right down town. The room was beautiful, the nicest we had the whole trip, breakfast was very good and we heard good things about the dinners although we didnt try them ourselves. You would never believe this hotel is run by the Salvation Army. Highly recommended.Bruce and Sharon, Winnipeg, Manitoba

    Carfax is a Great Bath Hotel

    from

    I went to Bath for a weekend in April 2002 and stayed at the Carfax Hotel in a second floor double bedded room. The room was beautiful and the breakfast had a good selection of well prepared food. The free car park proved invaluable as Bath is a pig to park in, and everything was I wanted to see was in easy walking distance. I would recommend this hotel as friendly and affordable. My only complaint was that the dinning room got quite busy.
