What Past Guests Are Saying
Top class. Second visit - just as good as the first.
A beautifully furnished apartment in walking distance of everything in Bath. I cannot image a better place. Last time we enjoyed exploring Bath in the January snow. This time we used it as our base for the final stages of completing the Cotswold Way walk. This is such a comfortable and conveniently located apartment with great amenities. Janet, who greats you, is so friendly and welcoming - a real treasure. I just hope The Gallery is available next time we want to visit.
Wonderful location to spend our mini-moon
We had 3 wonderful days unwinding in Bath at The Gallery after our wedding. The apartment is beautiful and extremely conveniently located to explore the lovely city of Bath.
We would highly recommend it for a Bath city break and may well be back!
Absolutely delightful place to stay in Bath, England
We stayed for 5 nights and loved every minute. Wonderful location. Walk to everything including grocery. Beautiful rooms and so comfortable, felt like home every time we walked back in the door. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed and more. Elaine and Stan are gracious in every way. I would recommend this to all my friends and relatives.
A very enjoyable weekend
My sister and sister in law were meeting me in Bath. I had booked the Gallery because of its size (3 bedrooms) and brilliant reviews. I am now going to add to the very positive feedback! The apartment is very clean and extremely well furnished. Nice touch providing breakfast for the first morning. Ideally located just a short walk from shops and numerous eateries. Cannot fault it in any way. A very enjoyable weekend
Wallasey, United Kingdom
Perfect apartment and location
Beautiful apartment, very well maintained, comfortable. Location is ideal for exploring bath. Try the thermal spa, we did the package that included admission, a treatment and two course dinner - good value and great experience. Great to come back to comfy lounge to sit and chat. Elaine left breakfast for us including home made marmalade- very tasty!! Would return. A very enjoyable weekend despite the weather
Leeds, United Kingdom
A lovely apartment in one of the best locations in Bath
A really lovely first floor apartment, beautifully furnished and well equipped. Very clean, comfortable and spacious - ideal for our short break with friends. It's just a short walk to the centre of Bath with some great restaurants and pubs, or you can eat in (we did both).
Wonderful holiday apartment
We stayed in this apartment with our 3 children and found it fantastic. Everything we needed was provided. This place felt like home rather than a holiday rental. Lots of space, easy booking procedure, friendly check in process and fantastic location. I would highly recommend this apartment.
Swansea, United Kingdom
Perfect apartment for a Great City !!
The Gallery has to the best apartment we have ever stayed in for a holiday, the welcome we had from Janet was lovely & we couldn't ask for a better location because we had all the great places like the abbey & Sally Lunn's. Thank you for making my Mum's birthday weekend great !!
Adelaide South ustralia
Beautiful, elegant comfort.
I stayed in the Gallery last week and it was divine. I am a very fussy sceptical person and always want the best for my money. Well let me say, The Gallery is superb in all ways. The amenities were excellent, it was like coming home to one's own comfortable home sngle day. I wish I could have stayed more than a week. What can I say about Bath, the most beautiful city in Great Britain.
The thing I liked least about The Gallery was leaving it.
Make sure Bath is on your bucket list
Mrs Janine Moore
A perfect place to stay in Bath
I stayed in this beautiful Georgian apartment with my two friends for three nights and it was perfect. The location is excellent - just 5 minutes stroll to the city centre over Pultney Bridge. The apartment is beautifully decorated and furnished with everything you could need for a short stay. The kitchen is well equipped, but as Bath has so many fabulous places to eat we did not make use of the cooking facilities. Elaine and Stan were gracious and helpful hosts who have certainly made The Gallery a first class place to stay in Bath.
A beautiful, restful place to stay - highly recommended
Staying in the Gallery is a real treat. The flat is on the first floor of a stunning Georgian house, built in 1793, and has a fantastic layout, with high ceilings and big windows, and plenty of space in the two bedrooms, both of which feature lovely views out over Henrietta park. The hosts, Elaine and Stan, have thought of everything and the kitchen especially is well equipped with all the gadgets and cookware you might ever need. And it's a nice touch that you get a welcome basket of yummy breakfast food, including homemade muesli and marmalade. The location is spot-on as well - Great Pultney Street is just across Pultney Bridge, and a bit quieter than central Bath, but just as close to everything, and especially well located for gardens and river walks.
Finally, just a quick note to say that the hosts themselves are excellent - thoughtful and responsive and really give you all the information you need. When we accidentally locked up without retrieving a handbag, they were there within 5 minutes to let us in!
The Gallery is an absolutely superb place to stay in Bath. It is well maintained & decorated. It is only a short walk away from the centre of Bath & the attractions. Elaine & Stan Webb were very helpful during the whole booking process & the stay. I have no hesitation in recommending the Gallery & hope to return in the future.
Home away from home in a great location
This apartment is in a terrific location in Bath. Great Pulteney Street is a couple of minutes' walk from the heart of Bath's sites (including the Roman Baths and the abbey) and so many excellent restaurants. Grocery, pharmacy, bakeries, and anything else you'd want are all nearby as well. The building the apartment is in was built in 1795 so there's a ton of character, just as with everything else in this part of Bath. The apartment itself is contemporary, elegantly furnished and decorated but very comfortable to live in. The apartment itself is clean, spacious, and very comfortable. Even though it was quite warm and humid outside (27 - 29 degrees), the apartment stayed reasonably cool. There really isn't anything for me to criticize about the Gallery, only positives. We intend to return to Bath and when we do we will definitely stay at the Gallery again.

Fabulous in Bath
We go to Bath every year for a few days and this is the most comfortable place that we have every stayed, very elegant and welcoming with comfortable furnishing. We were 2 couples who don't live near each other any more so this allowed us to be 'together' but not on top of each other. The mezzanine with the computer was another good place to sit and read, although the best room has to be the living room with its high ceilings and huge sun filled windows. A definite wow.

Great way to visit Bath
Lovely apartment, plenty of room for our family of five. Easy walking distance to all the sights. Great historical neighborhood. Host willing to work with us arriving off a bus tour. Elaine was easy to work with and everything was as advertised.
Diane and Ian
Regal luxury in a fantastic location
The service from day one of booking this wonderful apartment was friendly, welcoming and top class. Elaine sent us a very warm and friendly email. Booking enquiries were handled very promptly and professionally. Janet who was there to greet us is a gem. She is warm and friendly and very helpful. Their home is beautiful and we felt like royalty just by being there. The welcome provisions were very much appreciated. The location was fantastic. There was nothing to fault.
The Van Zweden family
a wonderful experience
On our 3rd visit to Elaine & Stan's dream apartment, we were yet agaibn overwhelmed by the sheer luxury, elegance and comfort it offered. We had a wonderful Christmas in Bath to which not only the festive atmosphere in Bath itself contributes but to an even greater extent the Gally with its beautiful Christmas tree, elegant decorations, beautiful dinner service and other tokens, all in keeping with the style of the Gallery in general.
The apartment exudes elegance but at the same time a cosiness which wraps around one like a warm blanket. Everyday words are totally inadequate to describe the Gallery - we can only say: it is a wonderful experience and one really lives the dream.
Comfortable, well equipped and well located
We stayed at The Gallery for October half term and found the apartment exactly as described with everything necessary for a comfortable and enjoyable stay in Bath. The location is good being a short stroll to the centre of town and the owners were most helpful explaining everything we needed for a successful stay.
Wonderful and an ideal place to stay
A beautiful apartment with everything you could want right down to a shoe horn. Having a welcome pack was a lovely touch and very useful. All the rooms were of a very high standard and the bed linen and towels were all very fresh. The details supplied by the owners were 'spot on' and the help/greeting from their friend on our arrival was very good. The apartment is situated very close to the town and all amenities and in an ideal location. Well done to Elaine and Stan on a wonderful apartment.
Bath is a great city to explore and this apartment is in a superb location. The apartment itself is just fantastic and well equipped, and the parking is secure (and a godsend in Bath). Would recommend this to anyone who enjoys luxury and being within easy and pleasant walking distance of all the variety that Bath has to offer (we never needed to use the car or bus).
Suberb accommodation in a great location and lovely people to de
Of all the accommodation we stayed at on our trip to the UK The Gallery was a standout best. The owners, were very helpful and welcoming. The apartment was very well furnished and appointed and spotless, but most of all comfortable. The location is a winner as it is central to the highlights of Bath. We only wish we could have stayed many more days and would definitely recommend the Gallery to family and friends travelling in the UK.
Excellent location and comfy roomy apartment
Had a lovely stay in the Gallery. Apartment was very spacious and looked better in real life than the photos. The apartment had everything you could need in terms of kitchen equipment and other items that made you feel really at home. very friendly welcome from Elaine and Stan.
First class stay, excellent apartment
Wow, Wow, Wow. Elegant apartment on a glorious street. Felt at home from day one. Excellent facilities. Very warm welcome from the owners and really appreciated the welcome grocery pack on arrival as well as all the toiletries which were provided. Secure parking is provided which in Bath is invaluable. The apartment is only a 5 to 10 minute level walk to the centre. Although so near to the centre it was very peaceful at night and we slept well. This has been our favourite holiday rental and I would have no hesitation in recommending it. We will certainly book again when we are in the area.
A and J from Melbourne
Perfect accommodation in a perfect location
My husband and I stayed here for 8 nights. This apartment has everything. It is stylish and elegant as well as practical and comfortable. The owners and a helpful neighbour answered any queries we had and provided lots more sheets and towels to cover for vistors we had throughout our stay. The design of the apartment was perfect for when we had friends to stay - as the extra bedroom and bathroom are quite separate from the main apartment. Apartment and location were both unbeatable.
New Jersey, USA
Ideal Lodging in Bath
My husband and I stayed in this beautiful apartment for three nights during a two-week vacation in England. As lovely as our hotels were, this self-catered accommodation was the most spacious and comfortable. The high ceilings, fireplace and a tall windows give it the 19th century period feel that reflects its location on Great Pulteney Street, the location used for the film Vanity Fair. Nonetheless, there is a modern, well-equipped and well-supplied kitchen, a spacious bath with both a tub and a separate shower, and a laptop computer with internet access. The location - very close to the center of town but just far enough away to be quiet and relatively tourist-free - could not be more ideal. We would happily return there should we revisit Bath.
Stuart of Cheshire
We found this apartment on the internet by chance & count ourselves very fortunate to have done so, as it is excellent in every way; weighing very heavily towards the overall enjoyment of our holiday. We would have no hesitation in recomending the apartment to anyone who wants quality accomodation in an ideal location.
5 Friends and I have recently stayed at The Gallery. It is immaculate, you can tell the owners take great pride in the apartment. Fantastic location, would recomment to friends. Actually we are already planning on making a trip to Bath an annual event and will always stay at The Gallery
We were shown around the apartment, spotlessly clean with everything you might need for a weekend away including a nice touch of a welcome pack of basics, milk, tea, coffee and croissants. The apartment was elegant, spacious, a short flat walk from all the best bits of Bath. Amazingly quiet for somewhere so close to the action too.
We went to Cavendish restaurant which is 1 minutes walk from the apartment, in the Dukes Hotel. Whilst not the most lively of atmospheres the food was delicious, Michelin level. Ideal for a special occasion.
Oh and Janet who showed us round was lovely too :)
The perfect pied a terre in Bath
Having had a poor experience staying at an hotel in Bath last year, we were determined that this time we would stay somewhere that was a home from home and The Gallery exceeded all expectations. Excellent communication from our initial booking onwards made arrival easy and straightforward. The position of The Gallery in Great Pulteney Street means that all the restaurants, shops and museums that Bath has to offer are all within easy walking distance. The apartment is very well furnished and comfortable with every last detail thought of, down to the provision of a laptop for guests to use. I have no hesitation in thoroughly recommending The Gallery to anyone looking for somewhere special for their stay in Bath.
Carol from Phoenix
Home from Home
The apartment was very comfortable and well equipped. The location is central and within walking distance from all attractions.
The apartment, location and surroundings more than met my expectations and it was the 'icing on the cake' after a long awaited holiday in Bath.
I shall recommend the Gallery to all of my friends and family.
Great location, great apartment
We couldn't have hoped for anywhere better with the apartment being warm and comfortable in an excellent location. From the time of our arrival until our departure the experience was top quality and we would have no hesitation recommending this property to anyone visiting Bath
Excellent apartment in great location
We stayed here in February 2011 and the apartment was fantastic and more than we all could have hoped for. Its central location and easy access to the main attractions make it an ideal location for exploring Bath centre and the surrounding areas.
There is a secured car parking space provided at a small additional cost and a welcome pack of orange juice, tea bags, coffee etc was awaiting our arrival. The apartment is located on the 1st floor of a large Georgian terrace; the staircase is wide and not steep so access is not too difficult although not wheelchair friendly.
Within the flat there are two double bedrooms along with two single beds available on the mezzanine level. Our bedroom was comfortable and well equipped; we slept well and felt warm and cosy throughout our stay. There is a large dining room table, a fully equipped kitchen, two bathrooms and a large living room area with flat screen television.
At the end of the road is the Holburne Museum, currently undergoing refurbishment. In the centre of town there are lots of shops, a tourist sightseeing bus and plenty of attractions including the Roman Baths and Bath abbey all within an easy 10 minute walk from the apartment.
There is a Waitrose supermarket close by and two cinemas within the city centre, there are over 200 restaurants in the Bath area and lots of great places to eat and drink within a short walk of the apartment if you didn’t want to stay in.
We would definitely visit again and recommend The Gallery to all of our friends.
Anyone wanting a luxurious break in the beautiful city of Bath should look no further than " The Gallery". We have just returned from a weekend away for my husbands 40th birthday. We spent all day looking around the beautiful city and then returned to an outstanding luxurious apartment to spend a cosy night in. We will definately be back.
Perfect apartment to experience Bath (especially at Christmas!)
This was the 2nd time we had stayed at The Gallery
Our first trip in October 2009 with my mother in her 70s and our two teenage children. We wanted to have a living space for us all to be in and a kitchen. It is far better than ahotel for a group such as ours. It is situated on Great Pulteney Street a wide Georgian street of classical "Jane austen" townhouses.In my opinion it is more beautiful than the more famous "Crescent".The 1st floor apartment is accessed via a staircase which is not at allsteep but of course would be a problem for the very infirm. You can park outside to unload, then relocate to the designated free parking space nearby.We did not get back in the car again until we left as everywhere is accessible by foot.The apartment has all you could want and more: high ceilings/chandeliers and a fantastic dining table. The kitchen is well -equipped ( we cooked Christmas dinner here) Our teenagers slept in comfortable single beds on the mezzanine floor above the living room which worked well and would also be fine for adults.There is a lap top computer with internet access and wi fi in the apartment which came in useful.The welcome pack of preserves/milk and croissantes is much appreciated.A 5 minute walk gets you to the Great Pulteney Bridge and weir (plenty of restaurants and cafes) and there is a Waitrose foodstore closeby at the Podium close to the bridge.From there all the sights of Bath can be walked to (another 5 mins or so takes you to the famous "Pump Room" -book a table on line /by phone to avoid disappointment- Bath abbey,all the shops etc) We also recommend the Bus tours which go from the centre of the city around the city and into the surrounding countryside.Whether you are self catering or eating out -or a bit of both like we did,the Gallery cannot be faulted as a place to stay to experience Bath.
Mr & Mrs vanzweden
living the dream
The saying goes: don't go back to the same place twice as you'll never find what you experienced the first time. The Gallery proves to be the exception to this rule. We have lived the dream again during our second visit. Elaine's and Stan's eye for detail, their hospitality, the stunning apartment, its superb location, the fluffy towels, its luxury bedlinnen and dinner service a.s.o. made it a place where one is in heaven with far more than 4 stars; a whole galaxy, in fact. Words cannot express our experience but a big big thank you to Elaine & Stan for allowing us to live the dream.
East Perth Western Australia
The flat met our expectations fully. The photographs on the Gallery web page are a very fair representation of what the flat is like. This is not always the case.
An important point for us was staying in a heritage property but with modern comforts that did not detract from the heritage value. This is difficult to achieve but in our view view the flat did have this characteristic.
Perfect place to stay
A very elegant, comfortable, relaxing apartment to stay in while visited Bath. Within walking distance of shops, restaurants, river etc. - absolutely the perfect location in all ways.
We will definately be back.
Perfect place to stay in Bath
I found the Gallery two years ago when I stayed here with a friend. I couldn't wait to show off my find and had the ideal opportunity when my husband and I had friends visiting from the USa. They were all as thrilled with the apartment as I and agreed this really is the perfect place to stay and soak up the atmosphere in Bath.
The apartment has every modern convenience and is spacious, extremely comfortable and beautifully furnished in keeping with the period; kitchen and bathrooms are modern, stylish and very well appointed. Everything is immaculately maintained and presented.
The location on one of the best Georgian streets is exceptional and only a few minutes pleasant walk from the town centre. You will not need a car to explore Bath from here but, if you do travel by road, the parking space provided with the apartment is invaluable. If you fancy meeting the locals there is even a good real ale pub just around the corner on Daniel Street, the Pulteney arms.
The owners Elaine and Stan have an excellent web site and online reservations and check-in are very friendly, efficient and easy. The security deposit payable on my first visit was returned promptly as promised.
It isn't often you can award full marks across the board but the Gallery really does warrant this rating.
Beautiful apartment in superb location
We could not have wished for more, the apartment is beautifully decourated & furnished, spotlessly clean & in a suberb location for exploring Bath.
The owners personally welcomed us to the property & their enthusiasm & pride in it, is self evident.
Would we return - most definately.
Stuart and Sue
Luxurious surroundings to relax in.
A warm welcome awaited us at the apartment. The ownwers introduced us to the splendid accomodation and a nice touch was the items they left for ourt first breakfast. The flat was superbly appointed with clear attention to detail and the central location was enhanced by a secure private parking space. The apartment and the city compliment each other perfectly and reinforced the whole experience. All in all a special experience!
As nice as any hotel and relaxing as your home
Thoroughly enjoyable experience from start to finish. The location is great and if you don't want to be a tourist all day then it is a very welcoming and relaxing place to come back to. One thing to note is that sleeping more than 4/5 is a bit tight.
Luxury and comfort above and beyond!
The Gallery exceeded all expectations and provided the ultimate place for a gathering of family/friends (adults). It is very spacious and beautifully and tastefully decorated leaving an absolute feeling of homeliness with a strong air of class. Perfectly laid out to socialise and yet easy to duck away for some time out. Excellent location on the most beautiful street in Bath and yet a stones throw to the city centre. The owners clearly take great pride in caring for this apartment like a home. I strongly recommend staying at the Gallery and would even consider a another excursion especially to stay there again!
Fabulous location, perfect accommodation
A 5 night stay at the Gallery and could happily do longer.
Elaine and Stan were waiting to greet us and give us the personal touch for checking into the appartment.
A very well maintained property that can only be described as home from home. Not only was the appartment furnished tastefully and in keeping with the location, the additional touch of a fully stocked kitchen made the self catering stay a real breeze.
Good sized bedrooms, en suite, and a huge bathroom make a family stay here better than any hotel can offer.
Location is everything and this appartment has great views and is a stones throw to town via the picturesque Pulteney Bridge, add in the parking spot and you have a perfect break with no worries.
We will definitely be coming back.
Delightful period property in superb location
On arrival we were greeted by the very friendly owners. Parking on the street outside is for permit holders only but this is not an issue as there is a secure allocated parking space just around the corner. Off loading luggage immediatley outside the property is not a problem.
The apartment is light and airy with high quality,tasteful decor and furniture. It is obvious that the owners wish to provide first class accomodation for guests and there is evidence of great attention to detail throughout. Indeed, one feels rather grand staying in such a beautiful building in this road! The location and its proximity to the centre of Bath make The Gallery a fantastic find for us and we definately plan to return very soon.
Perfect Bath location
The personal welcome and essentials provided made settling in very easy. The apartment is exceptionally comfortable and well equipped for a relaxing stay. The location in Geat Pulteney Street could not be better for easy access to the City and local sightseeing attractions on foot. Being adjacent to two of the best parks in Bath and near to a variety of excellent restaurants was a big plus as far as we are concerned.
