We loved our stay at Hill House in Bath! From the first moment when Douglas greeted us by name and personally parked our car, to the last morning when Harry sent us along with fantastic suggestions for the next leg of our journey, the hosts of Hill House could not have been more generous with their time and expertise! Hill House has a relaxed and eclectic elegance, with delightful surprises on surfaces and in corners everywhere you turn. Our room (#7) had a lovey view of the adjoining hills as well as a pretty little garden below, and was spotless, designed beautifully, was well-appointed and brand-new!

The bed was comfy with lovely white linens; the bathroom, like everything else, was newly-renovated and in perfect condition, had unfailing hot water and good shower pressure, and there were tea and coffee, madeleines and even thermoses of fresh milk and water outside our door each morning. Breakfasts were dreams-come-true! Sun poured in and washed the big wooden tables laden with yummies. Hot freshly made-to-order gourmet breakfasts started our days off in healthy warmth, and included friendly conviviality with the other delightful guests and with our hosts. The suggestions for activities and restaurants in Bath were spot-on and made us feel like we were locals. Even walking up the hill to our Hill House “home” each evening had a great benefit – working off some of the extra vacation calories! We would highly recommend Hill House and would love to see it achieve #1 Bed and Breakfast in Bath on Trip Advisor!

Room Tip: Not sure what the other rooms were like (we’re sure they were great, too), but we were very comfortable
