Testimonials

This was our 7th booking with Bath Holiday Rentals and our 3rd time at Marlborough Heights. The apartment is fabulous, is in an excellent location and has everything you could possibly need. I can highly recommend not only the apartment but Bath Holiday Rentals as well as they have always been excellent. You also get the benefit of that rare Bath commodity - a parking permit. We have been lucky enough to park almost outside the apartment on every stay.

Just a quick email to say how much we enjoyed our stay last week at Marlborough Heights. We love it there as it such a nice flat in a perfect position.
Marlborough Heights Will and Jane - 2019-09-23
Amazing place in a beautiful, historic building for a great price. I would definitely stay there again!
Marlborough Heights sarah - 2019-09-01
Thoroughly enjoyed my stay in this lovely flat overlooking Royal Victoria Park and neighboring on the Royal Crescent. Slight hiccup in that hot water was not available to the sinks, but with the separate heated water system for the shower it wasn't much of a problem at all. Well stocked kitchen and the wine and treats were a nice touch. Loved having the washing machine available in the flat to clean off some of the grime from a long trip on the road. Bath was fantastic and the flat was just a short 15 minute walk from all the downtown sites.
Marlborough Heights Paul C - 2019-06-21
“We stayed in this lovely apartment over the Easter break and it was perfect! Well appointed and beautifully located with the royal crescent and Victoria garden on your doorstep. 10-15 mins walk to everything you want to see and do! Lots of nice touches on arrival with chocolate on the counter and milk and wine in the fridge! Would highly recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a relaxing stay in Bath.”
Marlborough Heights James - 2019-04-24
I can highly recommend both bath holiday rentals and the apartment. BHR were very accommodating around check in and at all times gave a real sense that this is a well run attentive and very customer friendly business.

The apartment at Marlborough heights was really comfortable, well equipped and immaculately clean. I was struck by the incredible attention to detail and the lengths they had gone to to make our stay really comfortable. They notified us in the description that this was a top floor flat, it's 5 flights, so perhaps be selective about luggage. This a lovely Georgian listed building so stairs are always going to be involved! You won't be disappointed if you stay with BHR.
Marlborough Heights Frazer - 2019-03-18
“I was really enjoying my stay there. Everything was perfect and clean. Due to my mistake, I had some difficulties to find the place but Laine was there for us and was super nice and patient. Though the property was very close to the city centre, the area near the property is very peaceful and beautiful.”
Marlborough Heights Kim - 2019-03-12
Very nice stay in a beautiful and cozy newly renovated apartment. Very well placed near the Royal Crescent, Royal Victoria Park, less than 10 minutes from the city center and shops. Very clean and quiet with all amenities (well equipped kitchen, internet, resident card to place on the vehicle allowing free parking for the duration of the stay, ... Very nice home Only downside: 5th floor without elevator ... in a beautiful building of the XVIII century.
Marlborough Heights Olivier - 2019-01-15
“Lovely flat in a great location for central Bath. The Royal Crescent is literally on your doorstep and everything else is within easy walking distance. The flat itself was warm, cosy, extremely well equipped if you want to do your own cooking and was spotlessly clean. We had a warm welcome and even help getting our bags and coats up the stairs! We would return without hesitation.”
Marlborough Heights Stephen - 2018-12-14

We really enjoyed our stay in this lovely top floor flat with gorgeous views over allotments and park at the back and the Royal Crescent as you walk out of the front door. Beautifully decorated with modern shower room and kitchen with all necessary appliances, the flat is comfortable and the hosts welcoming. It's within easy walking distance of the town centre and many tourist attractions including Bath Abbey, Roman Baths and Thermae spa as well as shops and restaurants. Information in the flat includes the owner's recommendations, which is very useful. The parking permit was a great asset as parking in Bath can be expensive. Highly recommended, we would definitely go again.

Marlborough Heights Caroline - 2018-10-24
We really loved our 2 week stay at Marlborough Heights apartment. We would like to stay there again the next time we are in Bath. The spacious entry hall, kitchen, living/dining, bedroom, and bathroom were much appreciated. Wifi was excellent. We loved the views out to Royal Victoria park and community gardens. Standing at the arched opening in the kitchen, you could see the great view of the trees outside the living room window. The kitchen was well designed with plenty of counterspace and all the appliances you could need. The washer/dryer in the unit was so nice to use for a long stay. There is plenty of storage in the bedroom and the bathroom - again, very nice for a long stay. The bed was really comfortable and the no touch bedside lamp was great to use, especially if you needed a soft light when getting up in the middle of the night. It was a very quiet apartment and a convenient location. The city center was a short 10 to 15 minute walk. We felt very safe and comfortable in this apartment. We even met a couple of the nice neighbors. Marlborough Heights was a wonderful retreat to return to after a long day of sightseeing. We highly recommend this apartment.
Marlborough Heights Lori - 2018-10-08
5 star. Exclusive, spacious and well-equipped flat, just opposite Royal Crescent, very nicely decorated, a kitchen with everything you need. Just lovely. The food waiting on the counter was very welcome. Staff was *very* helpful in giving advice and help. Thank you so much! The only little drawback was the double bed: only 1,5m wide, so I used the spare bed in the living room.
The flat is pretty close to the centre (12-15 minutes), 10 minutes walk to the Sainsbury supermarket. And Bath is just marvellous! We enjoyed our stay a lot!
Marlborough Heights Stefan - 2018-08-06
"I have stayed at Marlborough Heights off and on over an 8-month period and my experience has been absolutely fantastic. The apartment itself is very comfortable, cozy, elegant and fully equipped. Its location by the Royal Crescent is simply ideal. Alexa and her great team are always available to solve any issue that may arise. I would definitely recommend Bath Holiday Rentals!”
Marlborough Heights Ana - 2018-05-29
“Such a perfect place to stay. Great size, comfy bed, lovely rooms with wonderful windows. Arrival was smooth and easy. When we came in it was warm and welcoming with little touches to make it feel special. Fantastic location. Lovely and quiet for a good nights sleep. Would highly recommend and I’m sure I will stay again!”
Marlborough Heights Charlotte - 2018-04-04
A lovely flat right by the Royal Crescent and Victoria park, easy walk to centre.
The flat is well equipped , especially the kitchen, comfortable and clean.

Only minor drawback is the climb up the stairs as it at the top of the building, but nice views from window.
Very helpful staff who dealt with booking and Sara who welcomed us.
Marlborough Heights Astrid - 2018-02-15
very clean ,all you could need for a relaxing holiday lovely views from the rooms ,loved the air balloon trips from the park, lots of stairs as pointed out so not for the infirm
Marlborough Heights William - 2017-08-31
We have been travelling around the UK in holiday lets for a couple of months and this is one of our absolute favourites. Actually stayed here twice. Booking and check in was easy. Amazing location right by the royal crescent but because the flat is at the back of the building it's incredibly quiet and relaxing. The views from this top floor are splendid. The kitchen is extremely well equipped and the welcome goodies... very welcome!
Marlborough Heights Angela - 2017-08-09
We wanted to let you know that we enjoyed our stay at Marlborough Heights very much. The only catch was the staircase, which for us at our age found a little difficult, especially in the heat wave. The location was good, very pretty with the park and Royal Crescent in front, and the community gardens at the back. The appartment was very adequate, clean, and we appreciated the "welcome " items. Being able to contact you at any time of the day was reassuring. We were very satisfied with your service and pleasant manner, and would not hesitate to visit using Bath Holiday Rentals again.
Marlborough Heights Celeste - 2017-07-08
We didn't want for anything. All the needs that we require from a rental property were provided in this well positioned top floor apartment, fantastically situated in relation to the city of Bath.
Top marks for cleanliness, cosyness and the thought that has gone into providing not just the big items, like a wonderful bed and mattress, but the small things like all of the cooking implements that you could possibly want. Even when we found that the DVD/CD player wasn't "speaking" to the TV, the response in replacing it was impressive.
Being able to walk out of the flat and be less than 5 minutes from the start of the main area of Bath was a real bonus. Bath is also a lovely place to be and we were able to leave the car outside the property for 4 of the 6 days we spent there.
No hesitation in recommending this property. One of the better rented properties we have stayed at.
Marlborough Heights Bryan - 2017-01-29
"This was my second stay at Marlborough Heights and once more I thoroughly enjoyed my time there. While there may be a fair few stairs to get up to the apartment, once inside the accommodation is very welcoming. The facilities are modern and practical. They had everything I needed and lots more beside. The Christmas decorations were a nice extra touch. It's a nice short and scenic walk into the heart of Bath. Out of the 7 or 8 Bath Holiday Rental apartments that I have stayed at, I think this one is very near the top in terms of value for money". The only negative that I would point out is that the shower power wasn't great.
Marlborough Heights Barry - 2016-12-26
We stayed at Marlborough heights for 2 nights. Apartment was in a great location for exploring Bath. It was very well appointed with everything you need for a short break. Would definitely go back and recommend to friends.
Marlborough Heights Carol - 2016-12-06
I will certainly recommend you and your company to anyone wishing to rent a flat in Bath.
We had impeccable service from you and your team at every point in the process. It was extremely impressive, and just what was needed. You took care of everything, we knew that either you or one of the otheres would always be there if needed. Very re-assuring and very much appreciated.
Thank you again,
Marlborough Heights Terry T - 2015-05-27
I had a great, long stay with Bath Holiday Rentals. The apartment was perfect -- cozy and clean and all my needs were taken care of. I'm very impressed with the professionalism and hospitality of this company and have already recommended them to family and friends.
Marlborough Heights Carlyn A - 2015-02-06

I really enjoyed my stay in Bath and at Marlborough Heights . The flat is really nice and very well equipped and I could not have hoped for more.

The only thing I could think of in terms of further improvement could be a light in the bedroom closet as it was quite difficult to see when it became dark outside because the lights in the room are not very strong .

All the rest was perfect and Robert was really nice too, as well as the cleaning woman I met on leaving on Saturday morning.

Marlborough Heights Anne - 2014-07-10

what a wonderful time we had when we stayed atMarlboroughHeights. The location was perfect and the apartment comfortable and extremely well equipped. We will certainly return!


Marlborough Heights Tim & Cathy - 2013-12-12

We were extremely happy with the service that we received from Alexa regarding the booking of our choice of flat and with the ease that all formalities were completed. Special mention must be made about Robert who met us at the flat and explained how everything worked, where everything was, showed us on the map the good bars and restaurants and what to see in Bath.
Altogether, an exceptional experience thanks to Bath Holiday Rentals. Thank you"


Marlborough Heights Robin C - 2013-12-06

Our Second visit to Bath using Bath Holiday Rentals – a mixture of Business and Pleasure – what a wonderful position for this apartment – Stepping out of the Apartment and across the road into the Park. Very conveniently placed for walking into the Town but very quiet at night in this extremely comfortable and well fitted out apartment.

Claire was at the apartment at the agreed time to welcome us and had checked that everything was in order for us to enjoy a great few days.
We would certainly be happy to return to this property again and would recommend Bath Holiday Rentals to any friends wanting to Visit Bath.

Marlborough Heights Helen L - 2012-02-10
Having visited bath many times over many years staying in expensive and frequently overrated hotels, I found Marlborough heights a refreshing change. The apartment is up quiet a few stairs but you we were handsomely rewarded by an apartment in a superb location which is beautifully appointed with everything you could need. The only thing missing was a bread knife to cut the fresh bread left as part of the well stocked welcome pack, who cares - the rest of the flat made up for this a thousand times.

I will definitely use Bath Holiday rentals again as the service and property portfolio is far superior to some of the best hotels in Bath.
Marlborough Heights William W - 2011-09-23
We stayed at Malberough heights sept 2011 we were warmly welcomed by Fi. The welcome pack was great and had enough to keep us in tea/coffee and light breakfasts for 3 days. The flat was immaculate and the Baby Grand Piano did't get in our way at all. The location is perfect, and walking distance from most museums/attractios etc. We would definately return.
Marlborough Heights Cathy Seng - 2011-09-09
I am just writing to express how pleased we were with your apartment at Marlborough Heights over the last weekend. It is in a lovely location and had everything we could possibly need for our stay. I trust that we left it as required, and we hope to use your services in the future for our next visit to Bath.
Marlborough Heights Bethany C - 2011-05-05
We were absolutely delighted with Marlborough Heights. The apartment was clean and well looked after and had everything we needed. The welcome pack was a fantastic treat and we settled in straight away! The location was perfect - so close to town but also near to lots of lovely green spaces. Had a gorgeous meal at the Marlborough Tavern just 3 mins walk away. So much better than staying in a hotel. We are looking for a reason to visit Bath again so that we can stay in another of your residences. Really wonderful.
Marlborough Heights Zoe Howes - 2011-04-15
I couldn't believe that such a find could be available on the internet. Claire was taking us on a mini-tour round the apartment,(God bless her) and I couldn't wait for it to end so I could take a leap in the air. Oh yes!!, the air, it's so clean. The flat, just cosy and romantic. And the park!!! I could go on and on...
We didn't even have to take a cab, it's right in the city centre, yet removed from it all, if you know what I mean.

Alexa called in to make sure we were all settled in. Such wonderful service! Will most certainly come again!!
Marlborough Heights Jennifer O - 2011-02-18
Just to say a big thank you to you and the team for looking after me so well, down to the welcome pack of goodies - so thoughtful! I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Marlborough Heights and could not have asked for a nicer flat - warm, comfortable, quiet, so well equipped and a fabulous location - minutes away from all the sites, restaurants etc. Every time I went out through the front door, I could not help but gasp on seeing the Royal Crescent, it is just stunning.It must be one of the wonders of the world. I will be singing your praises to everyone I know and recommending you as the people to go to for a holiday in Bath. Thank you once again for everything.
