Befuddled owner, great location
Ill feeling due owner inability to advise corrected amount due for change of stay from nine days to seven days. Change made in January for intended stay in May. By the time she gave new charge it was too late to find a different rental. She then charged much more than amount quoted in January, blaming home away for excessive commission. Blamed us for pestering her to give us corrected amount due. All in all ill feeling, though rental location is terrific, right in center.
Befuddled! I was not befuddled, but this guest certainly was.
This guest was extremely annoying. She Pestered me constantly after making the booking. She had with questions about every detail and then at the last minute shortened the booking after paying for it.
I actually have never had such an annoying guest before.
When the guest arrived, the guest turned out to be exceedingly hard of hearing and rude on top of it. She would not listen to anything i tried to explain to her and seemed angry, because I had black towels in the black and white bathroom.
Altogether, her stay was miserable for both of us and I wished I had never accepted her booking.
Bath is the only place in England with real hot springs and since the dawn of time it has been the healing centre for England. The Romans did not discover the springs, but they made good use of them. They arrived in the area around 45 A.D., after sweeping across Europe, and were delighted to find the healing mineral hot springs and the gorgeous location for them to start a settlement. And settle they did! This location had everything to offer, from the natural hot mineral springs, to the verdant wooded hills, giving shelter, game, and necessary resources such as lead and coal. In addition, the settlement had its own Clairvoyant or Seer, so that the new city, called Aquae Sulis, became a spiritual centre as well.
This was a big city, like Rome, with stone walls, stone buildings with decorative porticos and mosaic floors, and with its mild climate, green and pleasant hills, became a major retirement centre for generals and senators. Its Roman heyday lasted for 400 years! The Romans left when their empire collapsed and the rest is history.
Today, Bath is a small, but cosmopolitan and lovely city. In the time of King George, the city fathers built many innovative buildings in a style that has come to be known as the Georgian Style. Bath is the birthplace of this once modern architecture. Now, with its architectural integrity and the golden hue of its stone, it is one of the jewels of Britain's heritage.
Set within the rolling hills of the most amazing West County landscape, Bath has become the perfect base from which to explore our English history. There are many nearby historical sites, all within 60 minutes of Bath: Stonehenge, the enormous stone circle at Avebury, the beautiful cathedral at Wells, the mysteries of Glastonbury, the National Trust village of Lacock, the perfect Cotswold village of Castle Combe, the Cheddar Gorge, or Longleat, the spectacular home of the Marquis of Bath, as well as some amazing Castles in Wales - just 45 minutes away!
