Amazing stay”

Myself and my husband have just returned from a one night stay at Dorian house. We were over the moon with our decision to stay here. The location is great, only a short walk into the city centre (the staff at Dorian house also provide you with a local map to help you find your way around) the room itself was spotless and had everything we needed, we were lucky enough to have a room that opened up onto the garden which was a nice added bonus. The bed was SO comfortable, we both had the most amazing sleep. Great shower. Free wifi. Free parking. The breakfast the next day was fantastic; great selection of fruit, pastries, cereal, and a choice of cooked breakfast from the menu - we had a full English and salmon with scrambled eggs, both were cooked perfectly and tasted lovely - set us up for the day! The staff at Dorian house were so welcoming and we both feel they couldn't have done anymore to make our stay more enjoyable. We will definitely recommend to friends and family. Thank you

Beautiful and Convenient B&B!”

Dorian House has a quaint charm. We had a lovely room with a good amount of space and great bathroom for such a reasonable price. The staff were kind and helpful and the breakfast was delicious. There's a small hill when walking to the city of Bath, which wasn't an issue for us but could be troublesome for guests who are less fit. Dorian House has their own parking lot, but it was full when we arrived so they graciously issued us a parking pass to park on the street in front. If we return to Bath, we'll certainly stay here again!

Stunning, comfortable, friendly and antique aspect”

Staff friendliness and helpfulness, amazing breakfast, beautiful set up just as youd expect from a city with such amazing history!

Wonderful, we were late in the evening, they left the keys out for us with a lovely note explaining everything! They have a dvd collection we could borrow as well down stairs as well as still or sparkling water in the room! It just felt that every tiny detail had been really well thought out and also gave off the impression of a very luxurious hotel dispite only being little in itself! If you have a chance as well take a turn round the beautifully maintained garden! This hotel/ grande house is a twenty minute walk to town, however coming back it is a very steep climb up the hill to come back. It is only a 5 minute £6 taxi ride though ;) We had a wonderful stay here and would recommend it to any group of friends, couples or eben individuals! Last thing to add is how helpful the staff were, offering personal views, recommendations and advice on how to make the most our time of our time in Bath! Needless to say we loved Bath and Dorian House and will be back :)

Booked this guest house as a surprise weekend away for my partner over the New Years break, very welcoming staff , bed was incredibly comfortable. Room was very well set out, bathroom fabulous deep bath. Breakfast was fantastic lots of choice nothing was too much trouble. Also there was a small help yourself bar with an honesty box. Dorian house is only a 10minute walk into town so great position, if I’m ever in Bath again I will definitely be staying here 🎊

Dorian house has a very amazing room with great views as it is located uphill. I can see the city of Bath from my room. The hosts are also very friendly and the breakfast that they provide in the morning is delicious. The city area is about 10-15 min walk away although if you walk back to the hotel. They also provide parking if you have a car.

The Dorian Hotel is very comfortable, welcoming, and homely. The breakfast is fantastic, rooms were beautiful and well appointed. Spotlessly clean with real attention to detail. A 10 minute walk from the centre of town, down a fairly steep hill into town (uphill on the way back!) would definitely recommend.

Quality, comfortable boutique B&B with relaxed atmosphere. Situated 20 minutes walk away from the centre, but with the great advantage of parking, essential in Bath. The hill may be a bit of a climb for some, but bus stops near to hotel. Excellent breakfast served in delightful garden room. Would definitely recommend.

I was very pleasantly surprised by this B&B. It really was lovely. I was given a large room (big 4 poster bed) with a view to the garden. Private, quiet and comfortable. Loved the bath as well. I appreciated being able to park on the road and use the parking permit for the duration of the stay. Staff were friendly and very helpful. All in all, I would definitely return!

I was on the top floor,with a queen sized bed, great for one person, but the room may be a little small for a couple. The wardrobe space was virtually non existent. I lived out of my suitcase, which was fine for me, but if you were there for a special occaision ,you would struggle to hang your dress/suit up. However, lovely staff,and great breakfast, short taxi ride into centre of Bath, good location for exploring the area, we went to Glastonbury and Bream Sands. I would stay there again.

Breakfast, Location, Room

We had an excellent stay at the hotel over a busy back holiday weekend. The moment we turned up with were shown around the hotel and explained what time to expect breakfast and then shown to our room which was called Tallis. It is right at the top of the hotel but with 3 velux windows in the ceiling it gives you a great view of the city. Its about a 10 min walk downhill to the city but a nice walk and not hassle at all. All the staff were nice and helpful, chatty and eager to please. The breakfast was fantastic (if i was being picky i would have liked a runny poached egg) but with a cooked breakfast and excellent Fruits, Yoghurts, Cheese, Juices on offer you cannot fault the breakfast at all. Brilliant stay and i hope to be back

Converted home on a hill overlooking Bath. Easy 10 min. walk downhill into town but highly recommend paying the 1.2 pound cost to take a #3 or #4 bus up the hill to save your legs. Very friendly staff who will help you set up reservations and who makes a good breakfast. Neat and clean. Free parking available. Overall a very good value. Would stay there again.
