Excellent accommodation, highly recommended!
My partner and I stayed at the Malthouse No2 for three nights over New Year 2010. We wanted a quiet break to relax and unwind, and we couldn’t have chosen more perfect accommodation!
Firstly, the property really is beautiful (especially the gorgeous high-beamed upstairs living area) and delivered absolutely everything it advertised. In contrast to the slightly rustic exterior, the interior is extremely contemporary, with every mod-con you could want (dishwasher, Freeview TV, DVD player etc). The open-plan living area, complete with comfy leather sofa and dining table, is large and spacious, and the main bedroom is a good size.
The standard of the furnishings and general fixtures (shower and bathroom for example) was excellent and as for cleanliness – it was immaculate!
We drove from London and had no problem reaching the location from the directions provided – just 10 minutes from Bath. The owners, David and Terri, left a welcoming pack of milk, bread, biscuits and a bottle of wine (the staples!) for our arrival and even gave us a quick text mid-break to ensure everything was ok. All our dealings with the owners from booking to departure were professional, friendly and straightforward. So, their customer service can’t be faulted.
The village, Batheaston, is very quiet and there really isn’t anything to entertain you there. But Bath is a short drive/bus ride away and offered everything we wanted in the way of shops and restaurants. We had a lovely afternoon tea at the Pump Rooms and really enjoyed our few hours at the Thermae Spa, with its heated open-pool overlooking the city (if you get a chance, go in the evening when it’s lit-up).
We would definitely recommend the Malthouse No2 to friends, family and anyone wanting a quiet break at a lovely location. We would happily return in the future.
