OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

It's around 15 minutes' walk uphill from the centre of the city and the train station, so you may end up getting a taxi or two during your stay. There is free off-street parking. In the vicinity lies Alexandra Park, from which there's a panoramic view over the city, and Menu Gordon Jones, a top Bath restaurant.

By car: around 45 minutes from Bristol, 2 hours 30 minutes from London and 3 hours 30 minutes from Manchester. There is free parking on site.

By train: there are direct services to Bath Spa from Bristol Temple Meads (11 minutes), Cardiff Central (1 hour 5 minutes) and London Paddington (1 hour 15 minutes). The hotel is around 15-minutes walk from Bath Spa station. Book trains to Bath Spa.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

This is a very attractive bed and breakfast whose carefully crafted décor - picture chic French-style furnishings and matching colour schemes - is a big part of the appeal. The semi-detached Victorian villa is spacious and well-proportioned, with a sweeping staircase overhung with gilt mirrors and architectural prints of Bath rising from the hall.

THE FACILITIES

Grays is owned by Mark Cole, a Bath resident and also owns Brindleys, another first-rate bed and breakfast in the city. Grays is very well managed by James Hill and Eliza Jablonska. They live in an apartment by the garden at the back of the house and can be contacted at any time, though Grays is staffed to 7 pm in the evening.
