Hotels and eats in Bath

Will be heading to bath from Cornwall in April...and want some advice about hotels and restaurants. We will not have a cr so we'd like to be centrally located - maybe rent bikes and cruise around that way. We don't want old and stodgy b&b's even though we are "young
60's! Ambiance and great food/ wine are a must. Thanks

I stayed at the Bath House b&b three years ago and loved it. It is centrally located, I walked everywhere, and the decor was very attractive and fresh. Nothing old and stodgy about it.
They served a very good breakfast on a tray to the room in the morning.

I had dinner at Jamie Oliver's Italian one night and enjoyed it. Great friendly service, lovely outdoor terrace, nice wine and the food was very good, not fantastic, but good.
Overall it was a really pleasant night.

One thing to note is that many B&Bs wont rent for 1 night in Bath over weekends (and maybe other times??) so hotels may be the way to go if you are only going to be there 1 night.

Bath is lovely, and you should be fine without a car. Weekday hotel prices, i.e., Sun-Thurs, are usually cheaper than Fri and Sat. You can check traveler photos of hotels on tripadvisor to see if the decor is to your liking (also read hotel reviews). Don't know your hotel budget, but 3 to consider are:
The Henry: http://www.thehenry.com/
Three Abbey Greene (Old, but not stodgy IMO): http://www.threeabbeygreen.com/homepage,intro.htm
Anabelle's Guest House: http://www.anabellesguesthouse.co.uk/tariff,intro.htm

Can't help with restaurants as I tend to eat on the fly or from grocery stores. As for cycling: http://visitbath.co.uk/things-to-do/...vities/cycling

I am watching this jerribo.
We are going from Bath to Cornwall. ;-)
BTW, we are doing a self catering for a week.
I noticed in my searches, thst some self caterings do other than weekly rentals.

Hi Gerribo - If you like Thai food try 'Sala Thai' on Pierrepont St. I often have lunch there when I'm in Bath ...
