"Heaven in Bath"
Ms. Fozzard is an excellent hostess, the apartment was in perfect condition. With four persons there was plenty of spaces and the site and the views were very nice. The kitchen is well equipped and all the rooms (except the bathroom) have a window to let in the sunshine. Hot water and heating are not a problem. The apartment is well located, you can walk to see all the beauties that Bath has to offer. There's even the Royal Victoria Park across the streeth, no excuse not to walk through it. We also did daily excursions like Cardiff in Whales, Bristol, Cheddar Gorge, Salisbury, Wells, Stonehenge, Beaulieu, Purbeck Island.
Thank you very much for your wonderful review. I'm delighted that you enjoyed your stay so much and I hope to see you again in the not too distant future. Kind regards and best wishes.

"Fantastic apartment with everything you could need"
A beautifully furnished apartment in a great location on the edge of the lovely Royal Victoria Park. We stayed for a long weekend and even though there's plenty to see in the city we were in no rush to leave each morning as the apartment is so comfortable. Angela has provided everything you could need - this was the best equipped place we have stayed in many years - and could not have been more helpful. Thoroughly recommended.
Thank you so much for your lovely review. I'm delighted you enjoyed it so much and I really hope you come and stay again soon. It was a real pleasure meeting you. Kind regards and very best wishes. Angela

"Excellent apartment - We have been first guests and we highly recommend it"
We have been first guests of this apartment and experience has been excellent. Angela has a great, peaceful and beautiful apartment very well located with a nice walking to the centre. She made our experience excellent and had house full of details that made us to feel like at home (thanks for the Ferrero Roche). Apartment has also private parking that is highly recommended in Bath. Views are excellent, very close to a park so if you have kids they will enjoy that.
I highly recommend this apartment as per our experience.
Thank you very much for your lovely review. I hope you come back again soon.
Kind regards and best wishes.
