Great location, only 15-20 min walk though a park and then by some must see sights to the city centre. A beautiful house and the staff (especially Kate and Miro) were really nice and helpful. I'd definitely come back.

From the moment we arrived we were made to feel so welcome by Kate, she's such a lovely, friendly person, involved with all aspects of the business. We were shown a map and advised on the nicest walks, good restaurants etc. and she explained the tag on our key that would give us discounts around the city. Our room (Wellington)...

I have stayed at 5 star establishments before, but none were as warm and welcoming as this beautiful country home. I took my girlfriend to stay here for the weekend to celebrate our 5th anniversary. I also planned on asking her to marry me. The hotel was informed of my plans and said leave the room preparations to them and...

Stayed for two nights whilst visiting Bath and the Christmas Market. We booked the 'Garden Suite' which is on the lower ground floor. The bedroom is spacious with a king size double bed and a separate bedroom with a single bed. Tea and coffee facilities are available as well as a well stocked mini bar/fridge . Direct access to the...

Booked the Apsley purely on reading the reviews and wasn't disappointed. Gorgeous house and lovely warm and comfortable rooms. Ours was smallest and on second floor, which with my wonky knees was a bit of a struggle, but worth it as room was comfortable, well appointed and bathroom gorgeous. The manager and his staff were very kind and welcoming and...

In a quiet area about a 15 minute walk to the beautiful city center. At only 12 rooms it's either a deluxe B & B or a deluxe boutique hotel. Either way its lovely. They say it was the one-time residence of the Duke of Wellington's mistress, or one of them. Very attractive outside and in, although free parking is...

Stayed at Apsley House for second time, and once again really enjoyed our stay. The staff are exteremely welcoming, chatty and helpful, and the room was warm and comfortable. Great breakfasts and a lovely log fire to sit around on a cold evening! Hotel dining room is being re-decorated in January. Will go again!

My wife and I stayed at the Apsley house for 3 nights in November 2016. Kate and Miroslav were wonderful hosts providing suggestions and helping with luggage. The breakfast was a blend of menu and continental bar with fruits and cereals. We had to leave early one morning and they were kind enough to open the kitchen and make us...

Tried this B&B as it was recommended on tripadvisor, and turns out to be a good experience. We stayed at the house with private parking , acccomodating our family of 5-6 pax. Includes laundry, kitchen , private outdoor area, TV etc... everything we need are there. Only down side is no slippers and the bed mattress(master bedroom) seems old.
