We stayed here overnight as we had an appointment in Bath in the morning. Very nice family, lovely breakfast cooked for us early as requested and a very easy commute into Bath in the morning - 10 minutes. The pub across the road was an additional bonus with a red thai curry with monk fish on the menu as well...

This is a very old building. It is situated at the top of a hill by the crossroads. Despite the secondary glazing it was noisy. The bedroom we had was a strange shape with a small en-suite. The four poster was a small double. The breakfast was very good. The best connection to wifi was from the pub across the...

My husband and I visited our son who has recently relocated to Bath. We couldn't find anything suitable in Bath itself at a reasonable price, but managed to find The Plaine through Tripadvisor. We were delighted with everything. The guesthouse was comfortable and welcoming with a delicious freshly cooked breakfast. The village was a revelation! We watched England v Slovenia...

My friend and I had a great mini break using this lovely and homely guesthouse as a base. I would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to explore Bath and the surrounding area. The breakfast was delicious and Giles, our host, went out of his way to please; even returning a left item in the post to save us doubling...

Booked a 3 night stay at the Paine B&B as our son was getting married at Wick Farm ( perfect wedding venue). The bedroom was comfortable and although we had a third bed in there for your grandson, there was still enough room. Pre ordered our breakfast selection the evening before, so it was ready when we went to the...

After a lot of searching for accommodation in the Bath area, we came across The Plaine. I am glad we stayed here, it was a great find! Perfect for our visit to Longleat & Bath city centre. We had room 3 on the ground floor which was tastefully decorated. The bed was very comfortable, which perhaps eliminated the traffic noise...

I booked a room here as a belated day & night away for my husbands bithday. We asked could we arrive early, even if just to drop our bags off, before we headed in to Bath for the afternoon/early evening. It was no problem at all. We headed back to the village in the evening, stopped at The George for...

What a charming, typically Cotswold village, (Norton St Philip), and, right in the middle, a gem of a bed and breakfast hotel! With great ambiance, welcoming owners, (Stephanie and Giles), and a great location, what better way to relax and explore all that this area has to offer. Away from the tourist bustle of Bath itself, but close enough to...
