The rooms are above the restaurant & a very nice breakfast is included with the room. Location is excellent, walking distance to almost anything you want to see in Bath. Room was comfortable & clean.

As everyone has said it’s a perfect location for room in the city. With its own separate door at the side of the pub for entrance to the rooms. With the price virtually being impossible to be beaten, it’s great for the budget. The staff are friendly, the room clean, tidy, very well decorated, with the shower being my saviour, with lots of wonderful smelling shower gel and shampoo. The breakfast was superb and they didn’t hold back with their portions. Which is good when you’re my size. HOWEVER…… the mattress in my room was so well used by couples it’s almost shaped to two bodies. This said, sleeping in the middle for a single person is impossible as there’s a bulge. Am I being too pernickety? Perhaps? Take this as minor problem, as it’s fab. And I doubt you’ll regret it. I just need a girlfriend to share my getaway with I suppose 😀

A great place to stay if you are looking for this type of accommodation. Not really a hotel and not really a B and B, a nice location, made my stay in Bath wonderful.
