One word - Wow! Absolutely lovely Guest House, beautifully appointed. All staff really genuine and thoughtful. A perfect touch was a small birthday cake with candle and a Happy birthday song at breakfast, my husband was really chuffed. Bed very comfortable, really, really spotless. Totally unable to fault it. Will definately be returning.

It's a quirky, well furnished Victorian B&B with high ceilings and decorative mouldings etc with little modern touches. The staff were great and bent over backwards to help you out. Breakfast was very nice even though the tables for 2 were a bit too small to fit all the crockery and cutlery on, and you had to strategically manoeuvre everything... More

Very nice B&B with a perfect breakfast. Tasteful decoration and furnishings and spotlessly clean with lovely white and pressed bedding. Free parking close by and not far to the main shopping part of town.

We stayed at the "23" for two nights in late October and it was easily the best selection for accommodations we made among Bath, York and London. The 23 is immaculate and tastefully appointed throughout. It sits about 1.5 blocks from a wall entrance to the central city and while one could walk there from the train station, it is... More
