Friendly, helpful staff. Delightful rooms. Rooms 10 & 12 (double and twin next to each other) worked brilliantly for us as a family. Awesome breakfast. Gluten free very well catered for with the best gluten free ginger cake I have tasted! Location very convenient for shopping and seeing the sights. Thank you for a lovely stay.

Lovely relaxing place. Close to centre with excellent service. Breakfast relaxed and freshly cooked. Large room with lots of space and a fabulous bay window. Parking a little tight so be prepared to be flexible and trust your keys to reception. A little prices but worth the premium.

I treated my husband to a night away having already visited Bath twice before myself and stayed in a couple of lovely hotels.

...Although this is a delightful boutique hotel which we couldn't fault, if you wish to park on site (on the hotel's own land!) you could be charged up to £15 per night! However the hotel is located in a very pleasant position overlooking a park and within easy walking distance of the main tourist attractions.

This is a lovely boutique b&b about 10 minutes walk from the centre of town and opposite a big park, so quiet. Our room and bathroom were both beautifully decorated (apparently they had upgraded us) and spotlessly clean. The staff were all helpful and welcoming.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Just a 5 minute level stroll to the centre of Bath with all its attractions, Villa Magdala is a handsome Victorian townhouse, set within its own gardens with an off-street car-park. So close to the heart of the city, yet the hotel is in a quiet road, opposite leafy Henrietta Park, so none of the usual late night city noise to disturb a blissful night's sleep. 20 stylishly refurbished bedrooms offer a 5 star rated boutique B and B experience, with heavenly Hypnos beds, all king or superking size, with feather light goose down duvets and crisp cotton bed linen. Well-equipped bathrooms include fluffy bath sheets, and luxury toiletries. Gourmet breakfasts are served in a light, airy ground floor dining room, overlooking the park, all freshly cooked to order from a range of quality locally-sourced ingredients. Marry all this with a team of friendly, quietly efficient staff, ready to recommend and book all kinds of entertainment for you - a truly charming and characterful place to stay. ... more   less
