"This house was exceptional!"
Extremely well set up for family travel with a lovely selection of games and books provided. Great selection of welcome food left and even a card and little
teddies for our children to welcome us too. The decor is beautifully tasteful and there are lots of lovely little seating areas throughout the house.
The host replied to almost all queries almost instantly. Fantastic communication. A really central location and a fantastic place to stay.

"Best stay ever"
I had booked this for a hen party, there was a mixture of older and younger guests. The house was amazing and everyone was in awe.
There were decorations up for the bride, a personalised card and goodies. The house was so well decorated and lots of little touches
which made the stay all the better. The location is fantastic walking distance to the centre and all the main bars.
We could not have picked a better place. Joey was extremely helpful, no ask to great.
If I came back to Bath I would not look anywhere else. It really helped to make the weekend!

"The Old Rectory is a delight"
Beautiful rooms, wonderful decor and of course fabulously well equipped kitchen. The house was perfect for our party of 7
with comfortable beds and every thing pitched at the right level of luxury. Joey and David have created a calm and sophisticated space,
wonderfully placed to enjoy the city of Bath. The touches they add such as fresh flowers in the rooms and a generous welcome pack,
including special treats for the Birthday girl made it all the more perfect. Car parking needs to be paid for but that is pretty standard in Bath,
and it is very close to the house so not inconvenient at all. Would recommend this property to anyone.

"The perfect location!"
 The house is exceptionally beautiful - it made the weekend even more enjoyable!
Completely faultless from start to finish. If we could stay in your houses in every city that would be great!
We will use this house every time we stay in Bath from now on!

"Absolutely Perfect!"
Where do I begin? We had a fabulous weekend in Bath for my Hen Do last weekend. We arrived on Friday afternoon to a happy and smiling Joey, who welcomed us into the property. Joey had gone to the effort of decorating the kitchen with bunting and "Team Bride" balloons, as well as leaving a beautiful card for me. So thoughtful. The breakfast, snacks and treats provided were delicious and lasted us (all 7 of us!) all weekend. The house is stunning, clean, modern, bright and airy. I would not hesitate booking here again and advise any one looking to book a venue in bath for a "classy" hen do, this is the perfect place. 5 minute walk to the thermae spa and town centre, really easy to park near the house and very easy to travel around. Only thing to be wary of is that there's lots of stairs in the building and the rooms are spread out over the floors, so if you have a member of your group that would struggle, just to bear this in mind and ensure they get a room closest to the living room/kitchen. Overall, the absolutely perfect venue for my hen weekend, a kind and welcoming host and incredible, speedy service and communication from booking, to travelling home. 5 stars!

"The Old Rectory is a very special place to stay"
Centrally located, within minutes from Milsom Street, Thermae Spa and so many restaurants, it is ideally placed.
We had a wonderful couple of days in Bath thanks to Joey and David. Their home is beautifully turned out, comfortable beds, clean throughout
and everything provided for a lovely stay. The welcome pack of bubbly, biscuits, chocolates and essentials in the fridge were not necessary but very welcomed!
Cannot recommend enough! Many thanks for a wonderful stay!

The house was absolutely beautiful and there was a lovely welcome pack, and everything else you could need for your stay. 10/10! (Trip Advisor)

"If you are staying in Bath don't pass this place by, it's amazing !"
Located in the centre of Bath, close to excellent shopping, historic sites and cafe bars & restaurants offering the best, to suit all tastes.
The Old Rectory provides luxurious, scrupulously clean spacious accommodation. We received a most warm welcome on check in and immediately felt at home.
The hospitality provisions were both generous and comprehensive meeting all our needs. Prior to our arrival Joey contacted us regarding heating requirements
for our party which included two under 3yr children who were supplied with numerous activity & play items in addition to their beautiful cot and bedding.
David & Joey are excellent hosts!(Trip Advisor)

"Perfect base for weekend away with friends"
I stayed here for a weekend away with old friends. We all commented on how spotless the house was and appreciated the thoughtful touches throughout.
The bedding and towels, which are plentiful, are all of luxury quality. The photos in the listing are a fair representation of the property.
The house is conveniently located for all that Bath has to offer, with attractions such as The Royal Crescent being within easy walking distance.
I particularly recommend the nearby Scallop Shell for scampi and chips.
Communication with Joey was excellent - she answered all queries quickly and was a pleasure to deal with.

"Perfect for a convivial group in centre of Bath"
6 of us stayed at The Old Rectory and we wanted somewhere we could chill and chat over breakfast, enjoy all the sights (and tastes) of Bath on our doorstep,
and then continue in the evening relaxing in a lovely sitting room. The Old Rectory was, therefore, just perfect for us.
The house is very tastefully furnished, the bed linens lovely and everything is sparkling clean. The kitchen is incredibly well equipped and just a lovely spot to be.
The house location is in central Bath so everything worth seeing and doing is on your doorstep.
A special mention and thank you for the welcome pack. It was incredibly generous, great quality produce and choice that got 6 hungry people
through two breakfasts and had some treats for later in the day (although not that much later to be fair!). I would thoroughly recommend this place.

"Wedding Weekend"
This is a stunning house, very well located for central Bath. Very high end finish to all rooms.
Basement kitchen is extremely well equipped and a great place to congregate. Owner's welcome pack is very well thought through
and we even had a bottle of fizz and a card for our daughter's wedding! Bedrooms are very well appointed with comfortable beds
and everything you need for a stress free stay. Would highly recommend a stay here and definitely be back.

"Girls weekend"
Amazing house. Decor and special touches exceptional. Warm and cosy, spotlessly clean and comfortable.
Very close to city centre. Friendly and helpful owners. Thoroughly recommend. (Trip Advisor)

*****
"The house was clean, charming and close to everything"
The old Rectory was a fantastic spot to stay. We only had one night, and wished it was longer.
The rooms were very comfortable and the kitchen was well stocked with a great variety of nice snacks and foods.
This place will be on the top of our list should we visit Bath again. The host was very friendly and helpful.

"The perfect family retreat!"
We are a family of 8 ranging in ages from 2 to 70 and were welcomed in to Joey and David's beautiful home which quickly became our perfect family retreat.
Brilliantly located just a short walk from Bath's attractions, shops and restaurants, a large park around the corner and plenty of parking across the road,
we couldn't have been better placed to meet all the needs of the family. However it was the house that wowed us - large rooms luxuriously decorated,
a great well stocked kitchen and plenty of bathrooms complete with the little luxuries more familiar with a 5 star hotel.
The colouring books and toys were a welcome distraction for the boys too!
The communication was fantastic from booking to meeting us all on arrival - thank you for making our weekend so memorable!
Would highly recommend to anyone! (Trip Advisor)

We stayed at the Old Rectory for my mum's birthday and I couldn't have imagined a better place.

"Stunning town house walking distance of town centre"
Myself and 4 friends stayed for the weekend in this beautiful, spacious town house very close to the town centre.
The house was luxurious from the amazingly comfortable beds to the beautiful bathrooms and stunning kitchen.
Joey, our host had really thought of everything, from the superbly equipped kitchen to the stunning bed linen, towels and goodies she left.
Joey could have not done more to make this an exceptionally memorable stay. The location was perfect, a 5 minute walk to the centre.
All in all our stay was more than amazing and we will definitely go back. Thank you Joey, don't change a thing! (Trip Advisor)

"The Old Rectory was a lovely place to stay in central Bath"
It was beautifully furnished and very well equipped; Joey and David had thought of everything to make us feel at home.
(Private feedback: We were very impressed by your attention to detail - and a very well thought through 'Welcome Pack'
which was incredibly generous and just makes that extra difference. The rooms were very comfortable and we all slept very well!)

"Most wonderful stay"
I stayed in The Old Rectory Townhouse for my hen break. I would recommend this house for any stay though.
We were a group of 8 women of varying ages and this house was perfect. The layout of the house allowed us to spend time as a group but also
gave people their own space if they wished to have some quiet time. The townhouse is located about a 5 minute walk from the city center which was brilliant for us.
The owner Joey was so welcoming and so helpful, she made sure the stay was magical and just what I needed.
The house was clean, comfortable and impeccably maintained. The arrival package was lovely and really made us feel at home.

"We had the BEST stay, stunning house..."
I was visiting Bath for my hen weekend with 7 other friends and Joey kindly rented us their beautiful town house in the centre of Bath. What can I say, it was perfect for us, location was spot on and was just a couple of minutes walk from the town centre but yet such a quiet location. Communication with Joey was spot on and was lovely to meet with her at the house to collect the keys. Upon arrival we were all amazed at the house, all the rooms in the house were of generous size and decorated beautifully. We also had a lovely welcome pack of goodies which saw us through the weekend. Cupboards and bathrooms were well stocked it was like being in a hotel. I would highly recommend this property to families and large groups who want to come and visit the wonderful city of Bath. (Trip Advisor)

"We really appreciated the assortment of goodies left for us in the kitchen"
Seven of us stayed for my sister's hen weekend and had a fantastic time. Joey's communication ahead of our arrival was excellent and we really appreciated the assortment of goodies left for us in the kitchen! The house is perfectly located for exploring the city, the interiors are beautiful and all rooms well appointed. We would definitely recommended for groups of friends and families!

*****
"Amazing house and amazing location!"
Had a lovely weekend in Bath for a hen do and the house was perfect for our occasion! I think the house would be equally perfect for a family get away too.
We had everything we needed and Joey was super helpful leading up to our stay and on check out. Loads of room for us all to socialise, eat, and get ourselves ready.
The treats on arrival were a lovely touch too!! Thanks for a lovely stay and we will all be recommending to our family and friends!

"Amazing girl week-end at the Old Rectory"
We spent 2 nights at the Old Rectory townhouse and it was fabulous. We were really pleased with the house which had everything to offer.
Spacious bathrooms and kitchen, with very comfortable beds!! We spent most of our time in the beautiful living room!
The house is centrally located and everything is a little walk away.
All of the party were happy with this house, and I would definitely recommend it.

"The Old Rectory is a very special place"
Joey and David have combined luxury with comfort immaculately, from a well stocked kitchen with a generous amount of welcome goodies, to perfect bedrooms, crisp white bed linen and soft fluffy towels. Our family enjoyed a brief but beautiful get-together in this wonderful property and we would all like to thank our hosts for their help and for the thoughtful extra touches that made us feel so welcome. If we could give The Old Rectory more than five stars, we would!

"The house is beautiful and really made our weekend absolutely perfect!"
We stayed at the Old Rectory for a girls weekend away for my best friend's hen party. Joey greeted us on arrival and was super helpful leading up to us coming to stay too. The look and feel of the house is gorgeous and spotless and there are lots of hotel style touches that really make it (super fluffy towels, nice toiletries and luxury bedding). The kitchen is fab and well equipped. We cooked for 8 people both nights and there was plenty of utensils etc. and space for us to sit around the table. The giant master bathroom is AMAZING! And there were no problems with making sure everyone had space to get ready and shower. The bedrooms are all lovely, with plenty of mirrors and wardrobe space and the beds are SO comfy. There really isn't a bad thing I can say about our stay in the house! (Airbnb)

*****
"Gorgeous property in a prime location"
Everything was furnished up to a very high standard - I am especially pleased with the quality of bed linen used! Joey and David have been wonderful hosts - very prompt and helpful with queries. Simple, thoughtful touches such as a welcome card and Prosecco made our stay that extra special. Everyone was very impressed and we will definitely stay again if the opportunity arises in future!

"The location was great, a short walk to the very centre of the city"
We loved the house, it was spacious and had a really nice feel to it and was very well equipped (amazingly soft towels, nice toiletries, hairdryer, everything you would need in the kitchen - especially the nice coffee machine and the variety of teas!). Everything spotlessly clean. Very comfy beds and nice bedding! The location was great, a short walk to the very centre of the city. The hosts were very welcoming, quick to respond to any queries, met us on arrival and then quickly left us to settle in. If I have to think of one negative it is that there is only one shower, though this didn't end up being problem for our group and there are 2 baths which we took advantage of (one of which has a shower attachment you could wash your hair with whilst sitting or leaning over). I would definitely recommend it. (Airbnb)

*****
"This is a beautiful house in a very convenient central location"
It absolutely lived up to our expectations - we had a fabulous weekend. We were made to feel very welcome and appreciated all the lovely welcoming touches, from the little box of chocolates to the bottle of prosecco and the welcome card. One of our very best weekends away. All of us loved the house and the city. And thanks to Joey and David for making everything so easy and smooth. We loved everything about our stay! It was perfect.

"Exceptional place to stay with family and friends"
We booked The Old Rectory Townhouse with friends and our children (all 3 and under) for a weekend, as we were traveling to Bath for a wedding. We were so impressed with the house, and also the owner, who couldn't have been more accommodating and welcoming, we had a really wonderful time, i cannot rave about it enough. My daughter was so happy she asked me if we could stay there forever! The welcome hamper is a real treat, and it really adds that touch of luxury to a self catering let, not to have to do a massive shop, to buy larder essentials, tea and coffee, breakfast etc, especially when only staying for the weekend. Also a really lovely touch was to find complimentary children's bubble bath, and craft basket, very thoughtful. Lovely comfortable beds, with put me up beds for the children to stay in our rooms. Spacious, and immaculate, would recommend to anyone wanting a lovely place to stay in Bath. far and away one of the best places i have rented.  (Trip Advisor)

"It is impossible to find fault with this lovely home!"
Everything is exactly as described, and the attention to detail is exceptional. We would not hesitate to recommend making a reservation at The Old Rectory which is in a perfect location for visiting the beautiful city of Bath. This was our first experience of Airbnb and the bar is now set extremely high!

"Very accommodating, beautiful house!
Six adults and three babies all fit comfortably in this lovely spacious house! We all decided to stay in over the weekend and not due to the terrible weather! Joey was very accommodating to the fact we had small children on our trip and left some brilliant essentials for children! We really felt at home, thank you so much we all had a brilliant weekend in your beautiful house. Hopefully we will be back next year. (Trip Advisor)

"What an amazing house and hostess"
Joey was fantastic in the run up to our visit. Really flexible and accommodating. We had a small baby in the party and she provided lots of equipment for her. She also left a comprehensive welcome pack including wine, treats and essentials. The house is just stunning. Scrupulously clean and clutter-free but really well equipped right down to toiletries. Location is amazing. Minutes walk from everything good in Bath, but also close to the big park so the runners in our group had somewhere to go. We just had a ball. (

"Fabulous House in the centre of Bath"
Fabulous house, spotlessly clean & very comfortably. We only stayed 1 night but felt very at home - would highly recommend. (Trip Advisor)

"The house was a dream"
Joey was so helpful and informative with the house and local area prior to our visit and responded to my emails and texts within minutes which was great. She greeted us upon our arrival and let us feel we could contact her at any time during our stay should we need to. She even left us out some welcoming treats for the start of our mini break. The house was a dream....just like the photos suggest. I really do not have a negative word to say and will be sure to stay here again. Fabulous weekend. When I realised I had left some of my belongings, Joey had it in the post for me the next day - wonderful hosts. (Airbnb)

*****
"Great location, five minutes from the Roman Baths & Royal Crescent & shops"
We had a lovely stay, the house is beautifully decorated with attention to detail, it is super tidy and very cosy with the most comfortable beds. Joey and David are warm, welcoming and discreet hosts. We came with our young daughters, and our hosts had thoughtfully put out children's books and prettily arranged craft activities. Delicious breakfast - we were not expecting it. Everything we could wish for was there. Great location, five minutes from the Roman Baths & Royal Crescent & shops. Thank you Joey and David, I would certainly recommend the house to families staying in Bath!  (

*****
This was the best house I've ever lived in, much better than the four even five stars hotels. The house totally matches the pictures online which is so clean and tidy. Four rooms are enough for 8 people and we had a lovely night getting together. The location is great, 10 minutes to the Roman Bath and 5 minutes to the Royal Crescent. Personally, I would really love to pay a visit next time and I strongly recommend everyone who is seeing this comment to contact the host with no doubt. Joey is so kind and you will feel like home when you talk to her, so as David. I felt really surprised when I saw the foods and snacks they prepared for our breakfast and it was fantastic as well. Overall, you will really be impressed when you see the house and you will never feel uncomfortable when you talk to such a nice host. If overall is 100 mark, I'll give 100 but it is still not enough. Thank you Joey and David. (Airbnb)

"Beautiful house, excellent location"
A group of eight of us stayed in The Old Rectory for a hen do for two nights in September 2015. The house is absolutely beautiful - spotlessly clean and very tastefully decorated throughout. (One member of our group took photos of each room as inspiration for decorating at home!). The house is also very spacious, Each bedroom is on its own floor so there was room for us all to spread out. We especially loved the roll top bath and the lovely cosmetics in the bathroom. Joey the host was very helpful in arranging when we could pick up the keys etc. She also left us a wonderful welcome package including all the basics - plus some luxuries like Tyrrells crisps and prosecco! The location is fantastic - about a 5 minute walk into the centre of Bath. I would definitely recommend for a luxurious stay in the city! (

"Fantastic stay at the Old Rectory"
We had a fantastic time at the Old Rectory- we were travelling as three couples. It is a lovely big house and made our weekend perfect! The owner was very helpful before the visit and we really enjoyed the food, toiletries etc that she provided for us. I have to comment on the bath towels which were huge and really, really soft! It was also so nice to be able to sit outside in the little garden before we went out. The house is in a brilliant location, really close to all the shops and restaurants and the Therma Spa. We all drove here and parked in the car park in the same street which was very handy and then moved the cars to the street on Saturday evening for free parking on Sunday. We would definitely consider coming by train next time as the station is nearby. The whole house is beautifully decorated and had all the things we needed (hairdryers, irons etc) and the beds were very comfortable . We are definitely coming to stay here again and are already planning another visit. We highly, highly recommend the Old Rectory! (Trip Advisor)
