June/July Newsletter

Summer is finally here!

And my gosh did we wait for it! These past two weeks have been simply gorgeous in Bath, as soon as the sun comes out the city really comes to life. Lots of smiles all around, people enjoying ice creams and picnic-ing along the rivers or in the parks; or if you’re feeling romantic, a few couples i have seen sharing a bottle or two of Prosecco. Our guests over the past weeks have been so lucky and we’ve even been enjoying serving breakfasts and cold complimentary Bucks Fizz’s outside in the morning sun – a rarity in England it has to be said- on our new terrace outside.

Our New Mini Orchard!

If you’ve been following our Facebook or Twitter pages you’d have heard that we have planted our very own orchard at Villa Magdala as well as a rhubarb planter, our chef Will is extremely keen to get as much fresh produce as we can on the menu and it will be another welcome place for guests to enjoy when they come to stay with us. Our gardening team have been watering like mad over this heatwave but we’re sure the effort will be more than worth it!

Billy News

Our dog Billy has been up to all sorts these past few months but first of all he would love to congratulate Andy Murray on his great victory at Wimbledon this year. He was hoping next year that he may compete himself next year (we’ll be humouring him until then!:)

April/May Newsletter

What a fabulous, busy few months we have had at our Bath B&B Hotel …

and i am thoroughly pleased to say, as with the rest of England, that we have finally had our first glimpse of real summer heat!

Just as well, as we’ve had some new grass laid out the front and added new tables and chairs so that our guests can enjoy their afternoon tea and cake with a glass of bubbly outside. We love the fact our guests now have several areas to sit out and relax, the breakfast room, our sweet back garden and now our terrace outside.

One of the best places for a mini getaway

Villa Magdala Hotel Bath

We’ve been lucky to have a few travel journalists staying with us over these past few months and we’re extremely proud of our review in TNT Magazine, gloriously praising our every morning- bucks fizz offering and our perfect flat level location- just a 10 min walk to all the main attractions in Bath. We really chuffed that others are now appreciating the hard work we put in to revamp this wonderful B&B.

What about a Babymoon in Bath ?

Villa Magdala Hotel Bath

We have come to notice over the past year that we’re the perfect B&B for a Babymoon. We are always one to hop onto a trend, and apparently a lot of mothers-to-be are looking for places to getaway and relax before the big day arrives! We plan to put a bespoke Babymoon package together over the next few weeks to ensure we can give mums to be a really special treat before all the excitement. Make sure you like us on Facebook and Follow us on Twitter to ensure you hear about it first!
