Train runs directly below the house so expect to be awaken at 5:30 am every morning and every subsequent hour by the London to Reading/Paddington. The decor is poor, rooms somewhat smelly. Mattress is nice. No ensuite bathrooms. Breakfast is somewhat meagre. Astonishingly overpriced (£85 per night). We would never choose to stay here again.

My girlfriend and me have travelled a lot around Europe since 1993, always looking for good quality-price relation accomodations. Last month we went to Cardiff for an holiday week, following the Italian National Rugby Team for the (very bad!) match against Wales. We've talk so much with some welsh friends of us about the near city of Bath, so we...

we arrived to Bath in Easter and we didn't have any accommodation, it was very difficult to find anything because everything was fully. But this friendly couple helped and we could sleep in Roman City for one night and they helped us to find another BandB for the next night, very close and with the same characteristics. Thank you!!!

We stayed at the Roman City Guest House for one night en route to visit relatives, and whilst I agree with many of the other reviewers that the guest house offered reasonable value for money, I have to say I was a bit disappointed with our overall experience of the guest house. When we arrived it was raining heavily, and...

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at the Roman City Guest House. It's a lovely place, extremely clean and well looked after. The breakfast was lovely, the bed comfy but what made our stay so memorable was Sheila, our hostess. She was so helpful and friendly, I felt really touched by how much she looked after us. This...

After going around uniform looking Bath in circles, we finally found the guest house, so make sure you get clear directions and a map before arriving. Shaun was very welcoming and carried our cases to our lovely big room. We had the four-poster with shower, but the toilet and a bath were on the landing. He said this was due...

I would thoroughly recommend Roman City guest house as a base for exploring Bath and the surrounding area. It is located a short, pleasant walk (about ten minutes) from the city centre and you can park outside - as mentioned in another review Sheila and Shaun are happy to let you use one of their parking permits all day, even...

Sheila and Shaun were very friendly and extremely helpful. We were worried about the train noise as the house is literally directly above the railway track but we were put in room 2 at the front of the house with a lovely 4 poster bed with views towards the Abbey. The room also had a shower cubicle in the corner...
