Affordable Place to stay in Bath.
I’ll strongly recommend Three daggers which is situated @ 47 Westbury Road, Edington Westbury BA13 4PG. It’s affordable and realistically priced at $99 per night. I took a lot of time searching for the right place since there are a lot of things to put into consideration. They offer free breakfast, they have an excellent review and on top of that it is close to the pubs and all other amenities to name a few.
