Local Chambers of Commerce for BA1 2BA. These can be an extraordinarily effective way of getting into the business community and / or getting things done. Equally they can be entirely useless depending on the chair. If they have networking events associated with them definitely go, and keep going, if you have a business that need local support. What you put in is exactly what you get out. Below is the national site. Watch this slot - it might improve!
Guildhall

High St, City Centre, Bath BA1 5AW, UK – 01225 394041

I Love This place!! It's so unique, a timeless centre offering many shops and quirky outlets - been going there since my grandmother used to take me decades ago. From artsy handmade items to gorgeously rude cards and beautiful jewellery, with everything in between (haberdashers, deli, hardware, electrics, coffee makers, leather goods etc etc). Just go and try it for yourself!

This place has been here for as the City itself. There are number of coffee shops and eateries. A delicatessen, hardware store, second hand bookshop and an hairdressers amongst others. Great atmosphere, highly recommend a visit!

Bath MOT

Fleet Services Depot, Locksbrook Rd, Bath BA1 3EL, UK – 01225 477314

Have taken my car there three times now and these guys are wonderful. Proactive, friendly and helpful, no upselling or hidden agendas - just straight forward great service and advice. Can not recommend them enough.

OK, an MOT is an MOT but why not be choosey who does it for you? Just had mine done at the Council MOT station Locksbrook Road. I rate it very highly because; its easy to get to, staff are friendly, complimentary tea/coffee, no up-selling of additional services, fast and efficient, they do it while you wait at the appointed time, ( so in and out in 1 hr. They offer a free reminder service for next year (DVLA charge $1.50 for this service), a loyalty discount for next year, and of course the profits that would have lined the garage owners pockets are put back into Council services reducing my Council Tax bill. And more importantly for me, they have no incentive to fail the car to get extra work as has been my experience in the past with MOT stations linked to garage services. Why go elsewhere?

Registration of Births Deaths & Marriages

Guildhall, High St, Bath BA1 5AW, UK – 01225 477234

We were married at Kingston Registry Office in February and then went on to have our Reception in the Guildhall - the Queen Anne Suite. We cannot praise everyone at the Guildhall enough from the Register Office Team through to Monika and her staff who looked after us so well both before during and after our lovely wedding day. Nothing was too much trouble and everything was accomplished with the minimum of fuss, lots of laughter yet a very professional approach.. We wanted an informal relaxed celebration with close family and a few friends and it was perfect. Everything that could be done was done to make our day exactly as we had planned and hoped for. Our guests all commented on what a beautiful wedding it was. Thank you to everyone concerned Cyd and Richard Slade 03/03/2017

Dental Surgeries

Bath Spa Dentistry

19 James St W, Bath BA1 2BT, UK – 01225 464346

This is a wonderful dental practice in central Bath. All the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. I am very happy with my extensive dental work done so expertly by Sandra – she is a perfectionist and I can now smile with pride. Sandra is also a very calming influence if you are a bit nervous of going to the dentist! I am so happy with the results and would highly recommend the practice for any dental procedures. Thank you Sandra!

My visits to Bath Spa Dentistry are always something to look forward to. This is because it begins as I enter, with a friendly reception - which puts me in a relaxed frame of mind, before any work begins. Jason - who handles my somewhat unusual one off brace fitting is with his assistant both efficient and calm during procedures. He also makes time for a brief chat or joke - making the time spent in the chair fly by. To sum it all up, I trust the high quality professional skill sets that the staff offer, and at the same time admire their people friendly methods used. Keep up the fine work, David Snowdon

Widcombe Surgery

GP’s & Staff Widcombe Surgery 3-4 Widcombe Parade Widcombe Bath BA2 4JT Our ref: SES//68416 25th July 2016 To the GP’s & Staff at Widcombe Surgery, I am writing to congratulate everyone at your surgery on the fantastic patient care that you provide to the people of Bath. The recent national survey results are a testament to this. In the Bath and North East Somerset area, on average, 94% of patients feel the service they receive from their local surgery is "good" which is well above the national average of 85%. It is by virtue of the hard-work of surgeries, like your own, that Bath boasts among the best customer survey results in the country. Everyone in Bath is very grateful for the care that Widcombe Surgery provides and it brings great reassurance to know that we benefit from some of the best surgery staff in the country. Everyone at Widcombe Surgery should be very proud of the results achieved, which rank your surgery, not only amongst the best in the area, but across the country too. It is particularly impressive that 84% feel that their GP listens to them at your surgery which is a staple of the service that you provide. I am sure that you will continue to provide unparalleled levels of customer care. Please do pass on my congratulations to the rest of the staff and please do not hesitate to get in touch if I can ever be of any assistance. Best wishes, Ben Howlett Member of Parliament for Bath

An excellent Surgery with a great team of friendly and helpful Doctors and other medical staff and workers. After having been with this Surgery for more than 10 years I have never had a reason to complain about the service I have received. Truly a medical team I trust! and to top it off it has a Chemist shop attached allowing for great communication between the Doctors and Chemist when required.

Royal United Hospital

Combe Park, Bath, Avon BA1 3NG, UK – 01225 428331

My husband was admitted for emergency surgery. Over a four week period the surgeon, (Mr Ian Hopkins), his team of doctors and nurses on Robin Smith ward were exemplary; kind, courteous, informative. The docs even came in on their day off to see how he was. They did everything possible for him. They moved heaven and earth to get him home where he wanted to be. Am sincerely grateful to everyone who nursed/supported him.

My review is based on telephone assistance & not medical treatment. I telephoned the hospital this morning for details about my mother because she was admitted late the night before and I was about to make a 3 hour journey to visit her. Every member of staff from the receptionist, through to the ward nurse was extremely helpful and efficient. I had to be passed to 4 different extensions to get to the person who could help me with my enquiry but i have to say the process was done in a matter of seconds. I was extremely impressed. Each person was polite, friendly and helpful and I couldn't ask for any more than that.

Bath Centre for Pain Services

Royal National Hospital For Rheumatic Diseases, Upper Borough Walls, Bath BA1 1RL, UK – 01225 473427

This is where my life changed for the best. Met great Drs but for the month I stayed here I learnt how to live with my pain, More important though we're the other people on the course with me, going through the same things in life. I met the most fantastic people that soon became very close friends. Jane, Aileen, Irene, Joy, Tracey, Barry and Kevin. Love and miss them all xxxx

Royal National Hospital For Rheumatic Diseases

Upper Borough Walls, Bath BA1 1RL, UK – 01225 465941

This place is a true godsend. I don't know where we would be now if we hadn't been referred here for the condition CRPS. The staff are amazing and are truly incredible people.

A fantastic service, I am always treated with respect, I am given options in my own care and my opinion matters to them. I am very very lucky to be cared for by this amazing team, I'm not so lucky as for the reason why I am here in the first place but that is irrelevant. Wonderfully kind team, including receptionists. Knowledgable respectful and approachable medical professionals. I can't rate them highly enough, they have changed my life for the better.

Excellent job clearing rubbish. Reasonable price and very efficient. Highly recommend.

I called Sage Waste Management to clear some rubble and hard core from my property and Andrew was fantastic; came round to quote (at a reasonable price), booked in a time to clear, came and did the job leaving nothing behind! Very happy!

Thai Basil Restaurant

90A Walcot St, Bath BA1 5BG, UK – 01225 462463

Wow. This is hands down the best Thai food I've had in the UK. So much so I didn't even take a picture. The food is served very quickly but quality does not suffer. The staff are incredibly friendly and polite too. Coconut rice is a must.

As a Thai, I can say that this is the best Thai food restaurant in Bath. All the dishes is nicely done and the taste is very close to some of the best dishes I eat at home. The price is also very reasonable and the staffs are also very friendly.

Amarone Restaurant - Italian Restaurant - Bath

Quite atmosphere with Italian music in the background. No over priced. It was a perfect option for a late dinner, making us feel not in much trouble although we arrived after 9:00pm.

Great welcoming staff , the guy in the door very professional and gentle which gives very good impression. The staff are very friendly and warm we been served by odilia she's absolutely excellent , the food so delicious and made properly as I ordered.. the prices a little high. I highly recommend it 👍

Little Willows Day Nursery

Powlett Rd, Bath BA2 6QH, UK – 01225 332296

I looked at over 15 nurseries before I found this hidden gem! Our daughter wanted to get down and play straight away and for us we knew straight away this was the nursery for her. I love the fact all the children play together in the garden, means all the children mix with different age ranges. As a nursery they cant do enough to make sure your happy as parents and that your child is happy in their environment. Their amazingly flexible if you need put your child in extra. Id recommend this nursery over and over again! Wonderful staff= happy children and as parents that's all we wanted was for our daughter to be happy while we work to provide for our family. She's been going here now since she was a year old.

Fantastic nursery! Our son has been attending for 2 years since he was a baby and he absolutely loves it, like a home from home. The staff are all lovely and our boy is very fond of them. They have played an integral role in his development in so many ways for which I am very grateful. My husband and I both work shifts and they are the only nursery which could accommodate for the long hours whilst being extremely flexible. We can't recommend Little Willows highly enough and look forward to enrolling our new baby boy next year.
