Three nights, where to stay in Bath

We are headed for 11-day trip to GB in Sept and are planning 2 or 3 nights in Bath to start it off. Will not have a car so think we are looking for a spot to stay pretty much in the heart of town. And we thought three nights so we could 1. see the town and 2. take a bus tour to Stonehenge and other areas. Suggestions please?

We recently stayed in 3 Abbey Green which is a delightful bed and breakfast which as its name implies is very near the Abbey and also the Roman Baths and Pump Room.
The room we stayed in was very comfortable and the hosts very helpful.

We stayed at the Parkside Guest House BnB which has five guest rooms and serve a good breakfast. It is an easy walk from the train/bus terminals and is just around the corner from the Royal Crescent and park. It is a very quiet area. www.parksidebandb.co.uk

thank you all for the info! we now are trying to decide on a fourth night in Bath to allow a bike ride to Bristol or move on to two nights in Cotswolds.. after that we are looking at 4 or 5 nights in London...
We have 11 nights in all. Trying to mix the country and the city. Any thoughts on whether the fourth night in Bath might be too much? should we move on to Cotswolds? thanks again!

You may like to consider Mad Max tours (from Bath).http://www.madmaxtours.co.uk

Also consider Cardiff - it is an hour by train from Bath with an hourly service. www.nationalrail.co.uk
www.visitcardiff.com
This Castle & Museum at St.Fagans = about 5 miles W of city centre (Bus 32/320) is worth a visit. www.museumwales.ac.uk/stfagans/
You will also see Cardiff Castle - in the city centre & 15 minutes walk from Central station. www.cardiffcastle.com
Also in centre > www.museumwales.ac.uk/cardiff (closed Mondays).
1 mile south of city centre is Cardiff Bay - not a beach but an area of water. (Bus 6).http://www.cardiffharbour.com

If staying in Cardiff - 2 other Castles are found within 7 miles of centre.:> http://cadw.wales.gov.uk/daysout/caerphilly-castle/?lang=en (Caerphily town not very attractive but the castle is a massive medieval fortress surrounded by a moat).

I loved The Kennard B&B. I had the red room and it was lovely. The garden room, where breakfast is served, is beautiful. The location is very convenient as well.
