We'd pre-paid GBP99 for one night. Arrived last Thursday 4 September 2014 and were pretty shocked at the reception area (the pub bar), dirty common areas, etc. I inspected our room and it was desperately in need of refurbishment, small, was dirty, stained carpets, torn upholstery, etc. It was so bad we forfeited our money and went elsewhere (where got...

Had a lovely stay at the Griffin. Super central location, lots of character, really comfy beds and delicious cooked breakfast. (Thanks for the fried bread!). The staff are very friendly and helpful. Thoroughly recommend a stay here but only if you are good at climbing up stairs! This is an old hotel which has loads of charm but you have... More

We booked this hotel/Inn believing that we were going to stay in a four star accommodation and at £119 per night for a double room, that is what we expected. what we found was nothing up to our expectations. Having checked in at the bar we were led up to our rooms via a staircase with very stained carpet. Our... More

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
