Ayrlington and Oldfields Bed & Breakfast History

Once upon a time in the picturesque city of Bath, England, there stood two charming bed & breakfasts, rich with history and Victorian charm. Over the years, these establishments had seen many owners come and go, each leaving behind their own unique mark on the place. But it wasn’t until the Iannuzzi family, hailing all the way from Italy, that the true magic of family values and classic beauty was woven into the fabric of these quaint hotels.

The Iannuzzi’s were a warm-hearted Italian clan, known for their love of tradition and all things beautiful. As they took over the reins of the two bed & breakfasts, their love for classic elegance and exquisite hospitality breathed new life into the old Victorian buildings. With passion and a touch of nostalgia, they refurbished each room to reflect the splendor of a bygone era.
The sound of laughter and the aroma of freshly baked Italian pastries filled the hallways, making guests feel as though they had stepped back in time to experience the grandeur of yesteryears.

Among the Iannuzzi family, it was the charming young lady from South Africa, Bianca, who took charge of the family hotels. With her radiant smile and boundless energy, she brought a new dimension to the place. Along with her, she brought a slice of South Africa’s vibrant spirit – mango trees swayed in the back garden, a gentle reminder of her homeland, and the sun seemed to shine a little brighter whenever she was around.
Bianca’s love for her roots extended beyond just the mango trees and the sunshine. She introduced her guests to the diverse wonders of South Africa – from the delightful traditional dishes served at breakfast to the enchanting stories of her homeland shared around the cozy fireplace in the evenings.
And the best part? Bianca’s love for the outdoors brought a sense of freedom and adventure to the bed & breakfasts. She encouraged guests to kick off their shoes and feel the grass beneath their feet, just like back in South Africa, running barefoot for kilometers
through the enchanting garden.

The guests were charmed by the mix of Italian elegance and South African warmth. They often found themselves strolling through the beautiful garden, savoring the best of both worlds – the allure of Victorian times and the enchantment of a diverse and welcoming atmosphere.

So, if you ever find yourself wandering the cobbled streets of Bath, make sure to follow the scent of fresh pastries and the sounds of laughter to the Iannuzzi family’s bed & breakfasts. Step into a world where family values, classic beauty, and the vibrant spirit o South Africa come together in a harmonious dance, creating an experience that will stay with you long after you bid farewell to this charming place.
