The Rising Sun Inn Bed & Breakfast is a small, welcoming B&B in Bath City Centre. Downstairs is a small pub, also serving food on evenings and weekends. From the outside, The Rising Sun Inn looks a little worn, although the pretty hanging baskets detract from that. Once you’re inside the rooms are clean, in good condition and tastefully decorated.
On arrival, I first had to find a parking space, the road outside seemed to be for permit holders only. A quick phone call (it was closed when I arrived) and the owner popped down with a parking permit and some directions where I could find a space.
Later on in the day I even managed to move my car directly outside which made it easier for carrying bags to and from the B&B.
After check-in, I’m first shown to the room where breakfast is served in the morning, then the back route into the property in case I’m out later than 10 pm (or maybe 11 pm) when the front door is locked.
The twin room is on the top floor with large sash windows with shutters overlooking the road below. The room is spacious and looks very quaint. There’s a small simple bathroom with a large shower, sink and toilet. A small tea tray includes the refreshment essential, ie tea, coffee and some biscuits!

One of the best things about the Rising Sun Inn Bed & Breakfast has to be its location. The side road leads on to the road with shops on the famous Pulteney Bridge.
If you like real ales, I’d also recommend trying the beer shop ‘Beercraft‘ around the corner. They sell beers to take away but you can also sit in and enjoy an ale with some traditional pork scratchings (or not so traditional as I tried Marvelous Maple).
It’s a 0.5-mile walk from Bath train station or a 1-mile drive due to the one-way streets.

The Rising Sun Inn B&B Overall Thoughts
I was only at The Rising Sun Inn B&B for one night but it was perfect for my short stay in Bath. The parking could have been a small issue, had I not been lucky enough to grab a space outside the B&B (or if it had been raining!)
Then a separate order was taken for a cooked breakfast, anything from a full English breakfast, smoked salmon with scrambled eggs to whatever you wanted on toast. I opted for the salmon and scrambled eggs, very delicious even though the presentation wasn’t quite as thought out.
The only thing that spoilt breakfast a little bit was the blaring TV. I guess we live in a society now where the TV is a main focal point in most households but I would have been happy with a nice quiet breakfast 🙂
Would I stay here again?
Yes, initially I thought it was a bit pricey but after research, most places in Bath were around this price point. Plus with a lovely breakfast included and walking distance from Bath’s main centre it was an ideal place to stay.
