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
Booked after reading good TA reviews on this property. It has a very cosy décor and is not far from the city center, is a short ride form Bus and train terminal and could be reached by foot. is not within the city centre , but very near to Royal Crescent, walking distance to many attractions, we explored bath by foot during our stay.
We booked a family room that faces the main road for 3 nights , the queen bed is comfortable but not the children beds, the bathroom comes with wall mounted room heater which is an added bonus. it comes with tea , coffee and hot chocolate in the room. Room is not very spacious for family of 4 and not enough space to hang clothes and towels however we are totally fine wth that.
The only thing which I dont like is the carpet, is dated and feel dirty.
Overall, I would say is a reasonably good property and the service is good .
The Staff is friendly & helpful. The room was comfortable with little noise, even though it was facing the street. It is more cozy & inviting then a hotel. Walking distance to the Crescent and to Bath center. On the Hop On Hop Off route too.
We had a great stay at the hotel it’s warm clean and comfortable in a central location. The only constructive criticism would be the breakfast was very slow to be served and the TVs in the room would benefit from being upgraded to smart TVs but we had a lovely stay and would recommend
Brooks definitely exceeded my expectations, given the fact that we paid a relatively low price for our one night stay.
Conveniently located, Brooks just defines 'cosy and homely,' and we were lucky enough o experience its charm at Christmas time. There was something utterly lovely about coming back from a bitter, wet night in the town to the fire blazing in the communal living room, and the smell of mince pies on the air.
Our room was beautifully furnished, with the prettiest colour scheme and accessories throughout.
Breakfast was exceptionally good - the menu is vast compared to those I have encountered at other B&B's, and my boiled eggs with soldiers were delicious, and such a filling,w arming start to another cold day in Bath!
Service was friendly, warm, and efficient from the lady at reception, and the gentleman at breakfast. The whole experience was seamless, and we felt really comfortable here.
A 10 minute walk takes you from the Guest House and into the town, where all of the city's main attractions are located within walking distance of one another. We felt Brooks was a perfect base in the middle of everything, while not being slap-bang in the middle of the busy town.
Stayed here as was visiting the Christmas market. Read reviews about the parking, we were lucky to get one across the road and was charged £8 per day for a parking permit.
Greeted warmly and was shown where everything was, lounge area with beautiful Christmas tree, honesty bar and breakfast area.
Our room, number 15, was a little on the small side but to be fair we were out all day so it was only a base to rest our weary heads. Room was spotless and the king size bed was very comfortable. Tea & coffee facilities in room along with some homemade biscuits, nice touch.
Only around a 10 minute walk into town so a perfect location.
Breakfast the next day was very nice. All freshly cooked and you could help yourself to juice, cereals, yoghurt compote and fresh fruit. We had the cooked breakfast and eggs benedict.
Overall an enjoyable stay and would highly recommend to anyone looking to stay in Bath.
