I had a cast iron claw foot tin in one of my previous homes. It was beautiful to use but impossible to clean under.

Perfectly Presented Properties
Apologies for the poor quality pic, best I could do on the iPad. This is the claw foot I installed when renovating our bathroom just over 12 months ago. I love the slipper end it's so comfortable to lay in, even my over 6 feet tall husband loves a good soak after a long day now! When I was researching I was looking at cast iron simply for heat retention, but couldn't find anything that I liked so ended up with this acrylic Kado Classic and have no problems with heat retention.

I love the heat retention from a cast iron bath. I haven't had any trouble cleaning underneath, admittedly you need to lower the broom and mop close to the floor, I did have heaps of room next to the tub to enable that manoeuvre!
I have moved from the house the bath was in originally (built in 1918) but have brought the bath with me, yet to be installed.
