Marlborough House – Guest House, Bed and Breakfast

Being a Rick Steves devotee, I consulted his latest England Guide Book and perused his recommendations for Bath.  He says on his programs that if you are exploring England, Bath is a good place to get over your jet lag and start.  Also, if the guide mentions that you can get a discount when booking if you mention you saw it in the book, all the better.

Peter Moore of Marlborough House was the first to get back to me and offered me a nice discount for mentioning that I was inquiring based on the Rick Steves book.  This is is where I stayed and was very pleased with the experience.

Before you arrive, Peter will be touch to make sure you have instructions on how to get to Bath and how to get to his place once you are there.  When you arrive, he will sit down with you and go over the layout of the town and show you how to get to the sites you will want to see.

Marlborough House is conveniently located to Victoria Park, The Royal Crescent, The Circus, and downtown Bath.  One morning a did the walk to the Royal Crescent through all the sightseeing spots, and it was about a half hour walking time to get from place to place.

My bedroom was very comfortable and roomy.  It had its own air conditioning unit which was appreciated as there was a touch of humidity and I don’t do well in humidity.  As far as bathrooms in European hotels, it was spacious enough.  All the fixtures appeared fairly new.

Unlike hotels on the continent, and the one I stayed at later in my trip to London, Peter served a real breakfast.  There was the regular assortment of fruit, cereal, yogurt, breads, AND the option for a cooked to order breakfast (see menu in pictures).  The omelette was delicious and that was my choice for 2 mornings.  (The first morning I had to leave before breakfast for my tour.)

I highly recommend Marlborough House if you are going to stay in Bath.  Good price, good room, excellent location, friendly staff.
