What people say about our Short Breaks ….
“Mother & daughter couple nights away shopping in Bath”
I have been in the hospitality trade for over 25 years so find it hard not to be picky. But I have got to say I really think they have thought of most thinks at this lovely bed and breakfast and the standards are higher than a lot of hotels I have stayed in. Perfect location and easy enough to catch the bus into the city centre. I must mention Nic who was on reception when we arrived and the next day he is a lovely, helpful man and obviously cares about his job I would say a massive asset to your team. Breakfast was faultless even down to proper tea and free champagne I must say that’s a first for me. Fantastic thanks to all the team at Bailbrook Lodge and would recommend and if ever in Bath it will be the place I’ll be staying.
