This is an absolutely delightful B&B - would rate it as one of the best I ever stayed in! Peter, the owner is fantastic and his staff is genuinely friendly, helpful and competent. Rooms up to date, clean and comfortable. They even have air con in the rooms, which is something I really wouldn't want to miss on a hot...

We were here the week before St Valentines and it was a beautiful enclave. We had the room with a four posted bed and it was like sleeping on cloud. Peter, the owner, is delightful and knows Bath inside out. The breakfast girls are ever so lovely! No doubt I'd recommend to stay here to ANYONE!

We had a pleasant stay at this b&b during Easter. Peter is a charming and very helpful owner of the b&b. Also the girls that serve break"feast" in the morning are helpful especially with the kids (eg french egg toasts !!). And don't be afraid of the different veggie breakfast options, they are wonderful, cheesy omelet, eggs with beans and...

A good place to stay if you visit bath. The rooms are tidy and a bit old fashioned, but in a very good way. We had room No. 1 on the basement floor, it has a complimentary bed in which our 3 year old daughter was sleeping. The only thing that's a bit disturbing is the road that passes right...

Peter Moore, the owner, is a total character: he loves what he does, and lets you know it! He will talk your ear off:about Bath, restaurants, his B&B, . . He runs a lovely B&B in a 19th-C house two blocks from the Bath Crescent, and about 15 minutes' walk to the Roman Baths. The vegetarian breakfast is healthy, copious...

This was an incredible B&B with the most welcoming staff, comfortable beds and a nice bathroom with a large bathtub (Bamboo room). The room also had aircondition which is nice on a warm summers day in Bath. Everything was clean and wonderful, we wished we could stay for longer! Breakfast was a dream, I strongly recommend the omelette with mushroom...

We had a lovely stay at Marlborough House for our mini-moon. The staff were welcoming and helpful and made some really good recommendations for places to eat. We loved the four poster bed, extravagant breakfasts and complementary sherry!

We loved our stay at Marlborough House. My daughter and I arrived after a long day of travel. We were welcomed at the door by Peter who ushered us in, got us a large glass of water and gave us a brief but thorough orientation to Bath, restaurant recommendations and suggested walks. He helped us with our luggage to our...

We have just got home from a three night stay at Marlborough House with our two children. We couldn't fault anything - extremely helpful staff, lovely room and delicious breakfasts. The kids were made very welcome and the little extras in the room made it all the more welcoming. Will definatly go back.
