- Very Good
We were a party of 3 ladies who were visiting Bath to celebrate a special birthday. When I found this accommodation I had high hopes due to other reviews and we were not disappointed. The Old Workshop was lovely. It is in an ideal setting where we were able to walk into Bath although the bus stop was right outside. The finish in the accommodation was of a really high standard. The welcome pack was amazing and we really enjoyed the fresh bread and wine ! Everything was there that you could want and the kitchen had everything and more. Deborah answered our few questions really quickly and we must give a mention to Nigel the taxi driver who was great and really helpful giving us pointers of which pubs we may like. Bath was great as the Christmas Market had just started we also visited the Thearme Spa and Sotto Sotto. We had a great time and did not want to leave. We will be back.
Owner's reply: Wow Mandy, what a great review, we could not have asked for better! We really love it when guests appreciate the efforts we make to create a special stay as it's nice to know what we do works. We are of course blessed with a great location and the bus is a real bonus. Looking forward to seeing you again soon. Regards John and Jane
“Suited us in every way!”
The descriptions given by the owners, John and Jane, are comprehensive and accurate. The property is a fairly recent conversion into a dwelling which is well executed and to a high standard. There are four pubs/restaurants within a ten minute walk along street lit pavements which all provided us with suitable evening meals. There are frequent buses into Bath but we found the Canal side walk into the City more to our taste (2.9 miles). Some TripAdvisor reviewers commented on problems with heating - we had none. The heating system is under floor (not radiators) and probably unfamiliar to most of us. My advice is "Don't fiddle with it - it's not broke so don't try to fix it." We often stay in self catering properties but this is the cleanest yet so well done, Housekeeper Deborah!
Owner's reply: Thanks Denis, your review is really helpful in lots of ways - especially concerning the heating which works incredibly well when people don't fiddle with it, as you found :-) Deb is so thrilled you appreciated her cleaning efforts. We are very fussy and thankfully Deborah is of like mind so our standards are maintained year in year out. Noticing the small things makes such a difference. Thanks again for your very comprehensive review which tells potential guests exactly what they need to know :-) We hope you will come and see us again. Regards John and Jane
“Very nice, clean and well maintained”
Great position for visiting Bath. The No 3 bus is just outside the door and runs regularly. The accommodation is a reasonable size for 4 people and is well stocked with kitchen equipment. The welcome pack was nice and meant we didn't need to shop on the arrival day. Good response when we had queries. I plan to review the Bath attractions separately, but if you want a day away from Bath try Berkeley Castle (about 40 mins drive) We breakfasted at the Gather Cafe in the village one morning, which was very nice, but don't expect a traditional full English.
Owner's reply: Thanks for the review. The Gather Cafe is a great asset to us - very popular with our guests. Regards John and Jane
“Out of town location, good views and public transport”
Well equipped, modern dual-level apartment on outskirts of Bath - very close to bus stop with regular service into the city. Countryside views from rear of property, though no garden. Open-plan living space, but scent of wet dog detected on entry. Most equipment worked well, and decor pleasing, but showing signs of ageing. Good base for family wanting s/c accommodation near to Bath.
Owner's reply: Thanks for the review. We don't understand the 'wet dog' comment as no animals have been in the house and like all new arrivals it had been spotlessly cleaned, which gives a fresh new smell. We are aware some of the paintwork needs re-doing but we are so busy with constant bookings that we just cannot find a space to do it, but it is scheduled very shortly, with new carpets too. That should bring us back to the standard we like to offer, but meanwhile most guests find it perfectly acceptable and to a 5 star standard. John and Jane
“Handy for Bath”
Stayed 5 nights 2 adults 2 teens, lovely accomodation, met all our needs, nice comfortable beds, good showers, all mod cons, a nice welcome pack on arrival, in a great location for access to Bath (bus or taxi). Ideal base for longer excursions,highly recommend to anyone.
Owner's reply: Thanks Fintan, we are very pleased you enjoyed your stay with us so much We hope you will be able to visit again sometime. Regards John and Jane
“Comfy and convenient”
Loved this apartment, very well appointed, quiet and lovely views across the meadows. Easy access to Bath via boat, the best option, bus, the quickest and the bus stop just metres from the property, or a 35 minute walk along the canal. Great pubs nearby with good food, particularly The George by the canal, a 15 minute walk from the apartment. It would be very easy to cook at the apartment which is well equipped and a great place to hang out after an exhausting and wonderful day in beautiful Bath with its endless riches.
Owner's reply: Thanks Monica for your review. Glad you explored all the options for access to Bath, especially the boat :-)
“Great location for a weekend get-together”
We are four mature nursing friends and The Old Workshop was the perfect place for our annual get-together. It was comfortable, well equipped and we enjoyed just relaxing and being able to cater for ourselves, eating what and when we wanted. Ideally located for visiting Bath and The Cotswolds.
Owner's reply: Thanks Sarah. Hopefully you will choose us next year too :-) John and Jane
The Cottage was very well presented, In a very quiet location. It was clean and tidy and everything we needed for the stay was provided.
Owner's reply: Thanks for the review Michael. Glad we made it so you were totally happy :-) John and Jane
“Comfortable base from which to explore.”
Instructions received pre-stay were very informative, clear about arrival and departure and regarding facilities to expect on arrival. Safe, onsite parking. Quiet even though only just off a main road. Property was clean and beds were very comfortable. Very well equipped. On arrival there were some provisions to get us started, eggs, bread, milk and butter. A few shops down the road for basics and clear directions for local supplies a little further afield. Close to walks along the river and great views to the south. Would return.
Owner's reply: Thank you for the comprehensive review, much appreciated. You have summarised us very well :-) Hope to see you again. Regards John and Jane
“Great Apartment for visiting Bath”
My wife & I and her 2 sisters stayed in this apartment in Septemeber 2014 for 3 nights. The apartment is well located just outside Bath with the bus stop very close for people without transport.We had a car so parking inside the complex was good.The apartment is very comforatble with all the conveniences we needed and our stay there was most enjoyable. Would recommend this proprty to anyone visting Bath for a holiday.
Owner's reply: Thank you for the review. We would be interested to know what you felt was lacking in that you were only able to give a 4 star rating? We try our best to make everything as perfect as possible, so it's useful to know where guests perceive a shortfall. Thanks. John and Jane
