Do check out our new website, which has just gone ‘live’. The web address is the same www.threeabbeygreen.com It may not look new but, believe me, it has had quite an extensive makeover to try to make it even more user-friendly and completely up-to-date. Going through the old one with a fine toothcomb made us realise how everything changes, all the time.
The major change is the addition of a new page, called ‘About Us’. We love being a family business and consider our staff to be part of our extended family, so we have taken this opportunity to introduce everyone to you. We have become a three-generation business now that 10 years’ old Finlay is taking an active part, when he’s not at school or playing one of his many sports, not to mention deafening his parents, Nici and Alan, with trombone practice.
Some of you may know that the business has recently won a major national award from VisitEngland for Excellence in Customer Service. (Read about that here). The fact that it came as a complete surprise and was completely unsolicited made it very special. We could not have achieved this without the support of our staff, our extended family, who always go the extra mile to make sure the house is spotlessly clean, warm and welcoming.
Some things don’t change of course – we are not any easier to find when arriving by car! In fact, the council seems to find ingenious ways to re-route the traffic to make it even more difficult to drive in the city centre. Then parking spaces keep disappearing. Even Sue got a ticket the other day for parking in what used to be a perfectly legal space which had suddenly been suspended. Please do what we say on the website – download the file which has lots of information about driving to Bath and parking (click here to download). Please contact us so we may help you to decide on the most practical solution to finding us and parking your car. If you have any problems when you get to Bath, please call us. We will help you, either by talking you in or coming to find you.
The Bath Christmas Market www.bathchristmasmarket.co.uk starts on November 26th for eighteen days, kicking off a really special run-up to Christmas in Bath. Our guest house is right in the heart of all this festive cheer and can’t be beaten for location, unless you want to drive to the front of the guest house. Mission impossible, I’m afraid, as we become a completely pedestrian zone. Abbey Green looks stunning with the beautifully lit Christmas chalets. The air is full of mouth-watering aromas – mulled wine, hot sausages, roasted hazelnuts, spicy crepes. Parking to get to us becomes even less fun during this time as much of the on-street parking is allocated to Christmas chalets and the many extra visitors to the Christmas Market fill up the spaces in the three main car parks which are close to us.
The new website is still a work in progress and we would love to have your feedback on other things which would make it an even more useful tool or source of information.
