Close to everything in Bath including the train and bus station. Has a great wifi connection. Small pub with a nice friendly staff, and super helpful. Small room, but everything I needed, and very clean. I would definitely stay here again. Affordable.

This is a fantastically run friendly pub with excellent beers and food and the best bar staff in Bath. Its very central and is the ideal spot for a beer after work. It can get busy but never feels too crowded. Pop in, you'll be made to feel really welcome.

The room at the Griffin Inn was comfortable and had good wifi. Parking was the only downfall as it was a 10 minute walk from the hotel and cost £8.50 per day. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. We were always greeted with a warm smile. The breakfast menu was extensive and very good - highly recommend the omelette... More

We just loved to stay here. The building and layout is quirky and charming. The breakfast is excellent and there couldn't be a friendlier staff. The location is very central and all bath is easy to reach. We'll certainly be back.

We enjoyed our stay at the Griffin. Location was excellent, easy walking distance to attractions and shops. Rooms were tired but comfortable, although the en-suites were a little short on space (but the shower was better than it looked). Breakfasts were excellent. We had good friendly service throughout our stay. I'm sure there are better hotels in Bath, but, if... More

Great city break. Location is excellent around 3 minute walk from High Street. We travelled as a couple (early 40's) and had a great time. The staff were excellent, breakfast was great, and the bed was so comfortably. The pub dates back from the 1700's and therefore do not expect spacious rooms, although for our purposes it was more than... More

The inn is lovely, clean and the personal pleasant and friendly. We arrived early and left late and they stored our luggage. The breakfast is included and apart toasts and cereals you can have also a warm breakfast. The mushrooms and tomatoes omelette was delicious! And the jam is homemade. The location is perfect, it's central, near all the major... More

A lovely, small, friendly inn. Our room was a twin ensuite- it was plenty big enough for 2 of us with everything you could need including a range of teas! The staff were very personable and helpful- they went out of their way to give us tips on where to go and when as well as storing our bags after... More
