We’re a small, dedicated team.
Susan – Proprietor
After spending five years as an American-based flight attendant for Pan Am Airlines, Sue Keeling’s love for travel and people became apparent. So after settling in the UK and raising four children, her next life goal was to own a hotel/guesthouse.
Sue bought and took over the Tasburgh House in 1996, shortly after returning from living in Australia with her family. She revived the tired and dated bed and breakfast into the stunning five-star boutique hotel that stands today. The gardens were totally re-landscaped with beautiful terracing and a fountain and all rooms had en-suite bathrooms installed. The entire property received a much needed facelift.
Sue now dedicates her time to making sure her guests are as comfortable and satisfied as possible.

Grant – Duty Manager
Grant joined the team as general manager back in early 2015 and left to pursue a career as a flight attendant during the summer of 2018. Now back ‘on the ground’ for the winter, Grant has returned to us until next summer season. Grant can usually be found at reception and is always happy to assist guests with any queries or requests. Having been a resident of Bath for almost five years now, he couldn’t imagine a better place to live! He enjoys sharing his local knowledge with guests, recommending things to do and his favourite places to eat and drink.

Peter – Property Manager
Peter was born in Hungary and has always had a keen love for cars. Peter worked for Audi in Budapest before moving onto a challenging career as Sales Manager for a five star Swiss hotel chain. Upon discovering his natural ability to please guests, Peter then moved onto working for a Thermal-Golf hotel close to the Austrian border. After five years he got itchy feet and a desire to live and work in England and moved to Bath in 2013.
Peter is an asset to the team at Tasburgh House. Beginning as a Kitchen Porter, he was soon keen to take on further duties and responsibilities. He is now our valued property & grounds manager as well as chef and kitchen assistant – a real ‘jack of all trades’!
