Great location in the centre of Bath and close to all the major tourist attractions and shops. Parking was very straight forward with on street parking at £8 for two nights being great value in Bath.

Rooms seemed very tiny given the cost per night, however, as Bath is such a desirable location for tourists perhaps this is the norm rate. Breakfast was very good, great choices. Staff friendly and obliging. Excellent location. No lift, this could be a problem for some given 5 flights of stairs to the top floor.

The main areas of the hotel are fairly basic, but our room (#1) was very cozy and stylish, if a little on the small side. It was spotlessly clean and offered a lovely view across the park. Breakfast was included and we were surprised to get table service with a full menu of hot items as well as self service...

Really nice hotel/townhouse, cheapest one i could find which was still in the town centre. It was easy to find considering we'd never been to Bath before. Lady on reception was very welcoming and friendly, helped us take our suitcases upstairs. Car parking was only £8 for whole stay, which was a lot cheaper than other places i looked at...

The room was a bit cold at times, having old single pane windows. Luckily there were heavy curtains that provided...

Located very near to the heart of Bath and within easy walking distance of most attractions, the Edgar Townhouse is a real classic. Cleanliness, the staff, the food and all service were excellent. The big downside for us was that the room and bathroom were painfully small. This resulted in the TV being tiny and mounted high on the wall...
