Historical Traveler Reviews Tasburgh House Bath
Loved the Tasburg
This hotel was a fabulous base for exploring Bath and the Cotwolds. Its location just outside Bath combines convenience with the quiet of the country. The extensive grounds provided a wonderful place to unwind and access to the towpath only the canal provides a scenic route into town. The rooms were very tasteful, the breakfasts were excellent, and the staff was very friendly.
Nice place, but a long walk into Bath
We stayed 2 nights at the Tasburgh House in May 2004. The rooms are very comfortable and breakfast was good, but not great. It's a nice place to stay, and the grounds are beautiful, but it's a fairly long walk into Bath. It was rainy while we were there, so we didn't take the path down the hill from the back of the hotel. We walked down the street into town, and at a brisk walking pace it took us 25 minutes (which puts it at about 1 1/2 miles) to get to the center of Bath. You'll walk past the Carfax Hotel and a couple other places as you're almost into Bath.
We enjoyed 2 nights in the Eliot room here--our first nights in the UK. We drove from LHR and found it tricky to find, especially since we were not at all oriented to the area. Stay on A36 and you won't have a problem. We found the hostess friendly, but not bursting at the seams with sightseeing advice such as is common in similar inn-type hotels. I agree with an earlier poster, this place compares more to a US B&B than to a US hotel, but it is far more upscale than the UK B&Bs we saw.
Breakfast is okay, and there is a choice, but avoid the friend stuff, very greasy.
My only complaint, which was common to other UK stays, was the difficulty and cost of getting a soft drink or ice for a shop-bought drink.
Fantastic home away from home!
We stayed in the family room of the Tasburgh House Hotel for 2 nights in late April. The hotel was wonderful with an awesome breakfast, beautiful house and lovely gardens. The walk into town down the canal was lots of fun with many colorful narrow boats. We will return.
What's all the fuss about
Very disappointed with The Tasburgh. Do not expect an evening meal if there are less than six in your party as 'it isn't worth our while' we were told on arrival. We stayed in March 2004 so the season was still in 'tickover' but service was not that of a hotel (AA 4* plaque outside).. instead it felt like a bed & breakfast. We also gained the impression that if you booked through 'Octopus Travel' you would not get the room you were promised. Other rooms remained vacant for our stay but were unavailble!! We were placed in the attic room (or with the option of an additional ?30 a marginally larger room though not wonderful). On the positive side, breakfast was excellent and the decor / ambience very relaxing. VERY HOMELY. Hope this honest appraisal helps!
One of life's great memories
This place is fabulous. Staying at the Tasburgh was one of the best travel lodging experiences my family has ever had. The rooms are spacious and beautifully, colorfully decorated. The gardens are exquisite. The stroll from the "backyard" down to the canal and into town is delightful. And the warmth of the sherry is perfect to relax with after a day of sightseeing. My husband says breakfast is excellent too. Finally, the owners are very gracious and helpful. I simply cannot recommend the Tasburgh too highly.
Bath Tasburgh felt like home
The Tasburgh was a great choice. It's VERY comfortable and clean. As my wife said, all of the little details are taken care of obviously with a "woman's touch". The beds were super comfortable as well. The Tasburgh is located relatively close to the city center with an easy walk to town. The back garden is beautiful and has a great view of the town. The breakfast was great with all of the trimmings. Staff is very friendly and informative. Wish we could have stayed more than one night!
The Tasburgh was the my "home away from home" for 4 months and what a joyful place to call home. The Tasburgh's location to Bath, manicured grounds, charming hosts, interesting guests, delightful rooms, and equisite meals are only some of the treasures that add to the beauty of one's visit. I look forward to many return visits.
Beautiful Bath Tasburgh!
My stay at the Bath Tasburgh Hotel was one of the finest experiences of my life. The hospitality was as warm and friendly as one could hope to expect and the food was delectable, to say the least. The rooms are comfortable and homely and the views to the beautiful city of Bath are breathtaking. The enticing city is also well within walking distance along the canal in front of which the hotel sits.
A wonderful destination, a charming hotel. What more can I say?
Tasburgh Hotel Wonderful!
This 12 room hotel set on the banks of the river avon, with a nice easy walk into centre along the tow path is an absolute gem! The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. Each room has it's own Victorian Teddy watching over it, along with some suitable classic fiction.Room 6 where we stayed has a four poster, but I have seen other rooms and they are all of the same high standard. Sue Keeling the proprietor is profesional, friendly and hostpitable. One is given the impression that nothing is too much trouble. This is a non smoking hotel, although you can smoke on the terrace which borders the bright and well furnished conservatory. (as long as other guests don't object) The breakfasts are of a good size and extremly good quality. I have stayed in cheaper and vastly overpriced hotels in Bath, and for luxury without having to cash in your savings the Tasburgh Hotel takes some beating!
