If a perfect weekend to you is exploring one of the most historic towns in England and, perhaps, relaxing in Britain’s only natural spa, then a break to Bath has your name on it. Bath is of England’s prettiest towns, where spending days eating scones with cream and jam, before relaxing in the area’s therapeutic thermal waters is par for the course.
Base yourself in Brooks Guesthouse, a Georgian building just 10 minutes walk from the centre of town. This boutique property has a cosy-comfortable vibe with an honesty bar, a log fire and well-appointed rooms with pocket-sprung mattresses, guaranteeing a great night’s sleep after a day of seeing the sights.
How to Get There
Had a comfortable stay in this B&B. A lovely room with everything you’d need, for me just one thing was missing from the room, somewhere to put your suitcase/bag. That said it I’m not sure where you’d put a suitcase trestle.
We didn’t take breakfast as we preferred to eat out. The B&B has an honesty bar, but we didn’t use it as the prices were quite high for the size of the glasses provided. Great to have it but as an idea it might be better to have slightly larger glasses.
It would also have been nice to make a proper cup of tea or coffee to have in the lounge, the cake is a nice idea (again provided on an honesty basis) but we passed on it as we would’ve wanted a tea or coffee to go with it (granted tea and coffee is available in the room but fresh milk in the honesty bar fridge and again a larger cup would’ve been so much better)!
We had a small room in this beautiful B&B, but it was very clean and had quite interesting decorations. The free breakfast was extensive and very tasty. The location was out of the city center, but close enough to walk into town.
This B&B is nice enough for an overnight stay. Breakfast is an extra charge if you want it. To people who need to park at the Brooks, there is no designated parking. You must find a spot on the street or in the neighborhood. Also, my room had not been vacuumed. There was a huge hairball on the floor when I arrived. There is no elevator either. If you cannot lug your bags up 3 flights of stairs (or climb the stairs) then you should stay elsewhere. Otherwise it was fine for a one night stay.
Brooks is a nice B&B in an good location. Friendly front desk, and a home cooked breakfast. Our room, No. 19, was on the 2nd floor. It was large enough and comfortable, the bathroom was small but efficient. There is no lift and the stairs are steep and spiral, really challenging to carry large suitcases. Parking is only available on the street around the corner with parking permit if you happen to find a spot, otherwise you have to park in the next Car Park.
Brooks is a decent B&B in an good location. Patricia at the front desk was friendly enough, and fairly attentive, but the kitchen staff was less than engaging. Our room, No. 5, was downstairs off an alcove next to the dining room. It was large enough, and comfortable, but the bathroom was minimal and not efficient. The tiny shower in a separate room was about the size of a small travel trailer shower. There is no lift and the stairs are steep and spiral, really challenging to carry large suitcases. Parking is only available on the street around the corner if you happen to find a spot, otherwise you have to park in the Charlotte Street Car Park, a few minutes walk.
