This is the third time we’ve stayed in No 1 Manvers Street. It’s location is perfect and it ticks all the boxes. Penny the housekeeper is incredibly helpful and tends to your every need before and during your stay. It’s warm and cosy and has the most fantastic view. We will definitely be returning.

Stayed for a few days in this beautiful penthouse apartment. It really did not disappoint! The location was perfect for our needs, only minutes walk to shops, Roman Baths and the Abbey.

About the neighbourhood
The apartments are close to the new Southgate Shopping Centre where specialist retailers mix with famous brands. Largely pedestrianised, but with plenty of parking underneath the centre, Southgate has a unique blend of bars, shops, big brands (including one of the largest Apple stores) and restaurants.
Live music complements the latest fashions with the fun of street performers, creating that special atmosphere of the piazza.
The apartments look out over the River Avon to the green hills of Bathwick and Claverton beyond, giving them a peaceful view, not over-looked by other buildings.
Getting around
There is an excellent city sight-seeing bus tour departing from North Parade, 5 minutes walk away.
The railway and coach stations are at the opposite end of the street.
