We had such a great stay - it was for our wedding anniversary and the first holiday we've had since the pandemic (we're in our 60's). St John's was spotless when we arrived and a much appreciated welcome pack meant we didn't have to shop immediately. The secure on site car parking is a real bonus in Bath. We used the terrace quite a bit especially in the mornings as it is so quiet and peaceful. The house is well equipped, everything worked perfectly - a very comfortable bed and quality linens.This house is very well designed to a high specification so felt a lovely space to be in. Trouble free wifi which is essential these days.

We arrived the night of the Euro final and settled in immediately to watch it and the result was the only down bit of the holiday! We found it a quick walk into the centre of Bath and Waitrose nearby was great, also an independent bakery, had a few great meals in nearby restaurants and good recommendations in the house guide book. Lovely neighbour who was so welcoming. We would like to come back and would highly recommend St Johns.

St John's Riverside Mews Ed - 2021-06-27

St John's Riverside Mews Johanna - 2021-06-13
Perfect location, very comfortable nice to have the outdoor space
St John's Riverside Mews Sheila - 2021-05-07
Great location for exploring Bath.
St John's Riverside Mews Ian - 2021-05-02
A wonderful house backing onto the river a stones throw away from the city centre. A few little extras left by the host which was lovely.
St John's Riverside Mews Stephen - 2021-04-25
Wonderful location, very quiet but only a few minutes walk into central Bath. Lovely deck by the river, great accommodation overall, ceiling heights and size of rooms give a feeling of space. Very professional hosts, instant response on telephone and easy booking. Car parking (underground car park) very secure and good sized space with easy access to accommodation. Will definitely be back for a proper trip (not just work) out of lockdown!
St John's Riverside Mews Phil - 2021-04-10
Good central location and excellent facilities. Couple of administrative updates needed in the pack and app - wrong WiFi code and router given, no info on how the television works and minimal info on the music system in the home. Otherwise an excellent stay.
St John's Riverside Mews Catherine - 2020-09-11
You will see from the testimonials that Bath Holiday Rentals used to manage this property. Great news it has returned to us after a couple years' gap and having been refurbished. We welcome you to be the first to stay since the new launch and would love your comments.
St John's Riverside Mews Alexa - 2020-07-21
Really enjoyed our stay there. Would definitely recommend, you will not be disappointed. Very close to the city centre. Also the property has everything you need and more 👍👍
St John's Riverside Mews Anna - 2018-06-07
We enjoyed our stay at St John's Riverside Mews and it is the second time we have chosen this holiday rental. Dedicated parking space is excellent to have as Bath has limited parking. The house itself is modern and well equipped. The terrace (decking with seating) is lovely to sit out on and watch regular tourist boats up and down the water. We hope to return again.
St John's Riverside Mews Kate - 2018-06-07
Stylish, modern and comfortable well equipped house, ideally situated for easy stroll into central Bath.

Brief review:
Stylish, modern, comfortable, well equipped house. Location ideally situated for easy stroll into central Bath. Dedicated secure parking space which is essential for Bath as parking very limited. Would recommend to a friend.
St John's Riverside Mews Kate D - 2017-10-20
It gives me the greatest pleasure to give your wonderful company, Bath Holiday Rentals, my unqualified endorsement. I am not sure if there are enough superlatives to help express our satisfaction. From the moment we started looking for accommodation for our five-week stay in Bath, and you responded to one of my first inquiries, I knew that we were in the best hands.

You, Marcus, Ray and Sara were professional, respectful, patient, attentive, responsive and fun. We could not have asked for a better experience. Thank you.

St John's Riverside Mews exceeded our expeditions. The location is superb: I was able walk anywhere within the City Centre in less than 30 minutes. I was at Waitross buying fresh groceries, enjoying early morning walks, and seeing all of the amazing architecture, museums and historical sites daily.

The home is comfortable, well appointed, filled with beautiful original art, and has a superb kitchen. The back deck overlooking the Avon River is the perfect place for outdoor dinners and/or cocktails with family and friends. I enjoyed getting to know our neighbour and my brief contact with the owners. And needless to say, the contractors next door are now my new best buddies!

Alexa, I do not know what else to say except, thank you again, and we look forward to working with you on another property this coming year. Banana bread for all!

All the best,
St John's Riverside Mews Jim - 2017-09-19
We had a three night stay for my son's graduation. The apartment was perfect for 4 of us. Very central, high specification, clean & tidy, and a parking space.
Alexa had warned us that was going to be building work next door during our stay, which was very thoughtful. I must say they did start quite early but it was fine!
On arrival one room was made up as a double room instead of the twin requested, but Marcus sorted this immediately.
All in all highly recommended Thank you.
St John's Riverside Mews Elspeth - 2017-07-17
We very much enjoyed our stay at your property. Every amenity was available and we were most comfortable. The decor was attractive.
We made the most of the outside space in the evenings and were not affected by the works in progress.
We were close to the centre and parking was convenient.
St John's Riverside Mews Julie - 2017-06-08
Just to let you know that we have had another enjoyable stay at St John's Riverside Mews. It's the fifth year we have used Bath Holiday Rentals and we have always been impressed by the quality and location of the properties. Not having to worry about our accommodation allows us to fully appreciate all that the wonderful city of Bath has to offer. We'll be in touch to arrange our visit for next year.
St John's Riverside Mews Graham - 2017-05-14

Lovely stay at S John's Riverside Mews. Great location and secure parking made for a relaxing trip. The house itself was impeccably clean and extremely well appointed. We couldn't find anything to fault.

The service from Bath Holiday Rentals was fantastic. Highly recommend.

St John's Riverside Mews Sarah - 2016-12-20
Nicely situated and attractively presented apartment within easy walking distance of amenities albeit St John's Road is quite busy at times (it seems to be a locally well known shortcut, especially for taxis).

St John's Riverside Mews Christopher - 2016-12-12
I would definitely recommend Bath Holiday Rentals, the house really was above and beyond our expectations and the location was superb. It was great to be able to have a coffee as soon as we arrived, thanks for the pint of milk!
St John's Riverside Mews Pamela - 2016-07-21
St John's Riverside Mews was perfect, just the right distance from Bath centre and so peaceful, when you sat outside on the deck listening to the birds sing. The mews amenities were first rate, Bath Rentals went out of there way to accommodate us. Alexa and Olivia, thank you, you made everything run so smoothly 12/10. I could go on but would in the end run out of superlatives, the only down side was we had to leave to go home.
St John's Riverside Mews Julie - 2016-05-10
We recently stayed at St.Johns Riverside Mews and what a beautiful house it was. The location was perfect, quiet and peaceful with the house backing onto the River Avon. The secured parking was fantastic, it meant we could leave the car safe and secure and walk into Bath city to explore the sights, which was only 5 minutes away.
Overall we had a lovely break and would not hesitate to book with Bath Rentals again.
St John's Riverside Mews Ian L - 2016-04-13
We had a wonderful time in Bath. The apartment at St Johns Rd was beautiful, comfortable and very convenient. It was sunny and warm and an easy stroll from the city center. Robert was very polite and professional and very helpful at check-in. All the information in the house was very helpful as well. We would highly recommend Bath Holiday Rentals to anyone visiting the area, and would not hesitate to contact them again if we are able to return! Thank you again for our wonderful stay in Bath!
St John's Riverside Mews The Wheatons - 2016-03-22
Our stay in Bath was amazing, fantastic accommodation which surpassed our expectations. The location of St John’s is perfect for exploring the city.
Olivia was extremely helpful and responded to all queries really quickly. All instructions regarding keys/directions etc were very clear. All in all things could not have gone any better.
St John's Riverside Mews Victoria - 2016-03-21
Just had a really lovely weekend at St John’s Mews
Accommodation immaculately clean and beautifully furnished with a modern touch.
Everything we needed was there.
Didn’t manage to use the lovely outside decked area overlooking the water as it was a bit too cold.
The house is literally less than 5 minutes walk to main area of the town, and Christmas market area.
Would definitely use again and recommend to family and friends.
St John's Riverside Mews Diane R - 2015-12-17
We booked your St. Johns Riverside Mews for a birthday weekend break. From the moment we arrived everything was perfect. We had lovely festive treats to enjoy and the property was beautifully clean. We will definitely use Bath Holiday Rentals again for a future trip.
St John's Riverside Mews Melissa - 2015-12-14
We had a great break thanks, we all really loved the house! The house was extremely clean and tidy. It was a perfect location with a 10 minute walk to the city centre and having the under ground secure parking was excellent, it meant that we could leave the car safe and secure without the hassle or worry of having to find a car parking space. It was really nice being so close to the river and we would definitely recommend the accommodation to stay in.

Hopefully we will return to a Bath holiday rentals property again in the non to distant future.
