Only a few miles away from Bath this place is certainly a gem. Very well decorated, exceptionally clean room and a modern bathroom. Breakfast was superb and service was great. It was a pleasure to stay. Will certainly visit again.

This place was pretty cool. Box is not far away from Bath, so we stayed a little bit out at Lorne House. Our room was a nice size, we were traveling with 3 adults and 1 small child. The bathroom was very modern and well lit. The rooms retained some of the charm and character of say an older place,...

We stayed for one night - it's easy to find this modern b&b in box. Checking in was straight forward and the owner helped us with bus timetables and directions. The rooms were clean and modern, and had a good ensuite. The owners cooks a good English breakfast in the morning with lots of coffee and toast. Would recommend this...

Stayed there for one night on 5th July. I was given a warm welcome, as usual, my room was luxurious, the towels large and soft, and the breakfast excellent. It is an ideal location for visiting Bath. Stay there while you can as the property is now on the market!

Stayed here recently, to break a journey - collecting offspring from Bath Uni. We stayed in a well decorated and spacious room, which contained a large double and a single pull out bed - both were very comfortable. Lovely bathroom - the bath did fill fairly slowly (hot water) in the am, but not alarmingly so - and we weren't...

Thank you for the review and we're delighted that you were so happy. Just a quick response re. the sausages. we find that most people don't want large bangers for breakfast and that the chipolatas are more than adequate . They are very tasty and are made in our local butcher's shop of 90% meat . It's a shame that...

We visited Bath for the weekend and most hotels were either booked or overpriced so we opted for this lovely bed & breakfast about 15 minutes from central Bath. Our stay was just perfect.. a clean, cosy room. A modern bathroom with good facilities. Breakfast was made to order and also perfect for us. I would stay again and recommend.
