I've given this hotel 4 stars because I cant give 4½, and the ½ point mark-down may be our fault in not checking the size of the room before we arrived! Villa Magdala is a really attractive, well run and well maintained hotel just ten minutes walk from the centre of Bath. Everything is spotlessly clean, faultlessly fitted out and...

We booked this hotel at the eleventh hour (about 30 minutes before arriving to Bath) and because Villa Magdala only had one room left at that time our booking was registered their system just minutes after the last booking.

We have just returned from a wonderful couple of nights at Villa Magdala. It was everything you could want and more! Perfect location, free parking, top quality rooms, an extensive choice of perfectly cooked hot breakfasts but most importantly, a brilliant team of people working there! This is customer service at its best.

Stayed two nights in this delightful bed and breakfast hotel where the rooms are SO comfortable and well thought through and nicely decorated. The service was excellent and nothing seemed too much trouble. My partner and I stayed in a "better" room which was light and airy with a big TV and the bathroom was fabulous. The bed was ultra...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Just a 5 minute level stroll to the centre of Bath with all its attractions, Villa Magdala is a handsome Victorian townhouse, set within its own gardens with an off-street car-park. So close to the heart of the city, yet the hotel is in a quiet road, opposite leafy Henrietta Park, so none of the usual late night city noise to disturb a blissful night's sleep. 20 stylishly refurbished bedrooms offer a 5 star rated boutique B and B experience, with heavenly Hypnos beds, all king or superking size, with feather light goose down duvets and crisp cotton bed linen. Well-equipped bathrooms include fluffy bath sheets, and luxury toiletries. Gourmet breakfasts are served in a light, airy ground floor dining room, overlooking the park, all freshly cooked to order from a range of quality locally-sourced ingredients. Marry all this with a team of friendly, quietly efficient staff, ready to recommend and book all kinds of entertainment for you - a truly charming and characterful place to stay. ... more   less
