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

We stayed there overnight whilst we explored Bath. We booked the Inn before reading Tripadvisor so was a little unsure on our choice, particularly when we were allocated room 6. I don't understand the bad reviews here, the Inn was great, a good pub, superb food - shower room was not the biggest but I hadn't planned to party in... More

Don't stay here if you like perfection. If you like quirky this is the place for you. It truly is an old pub with rooms upstairs. Rooms are warm and cosy despite the cold November rain! Staff are super helpful - got my heat on in minutes, wifi no problem, directions happy to help. The staff are young but energetic... More

My partner and I stayed at the Griffin for 2 nights in a double room. We found the room to be comfortable and cleaned to a good standard. The staff were very friendly and helpful and even printed us out a local map with some good destinations to visit and recommended some places to eat. A Lightbulb went the second... More

You can walk to supermarkets, $1 stores, all attractions, large shopping centres. ABSOLUTELY nowhere to park. Have to go to the car park 10 mins walk away and you need exact change for the meter. The room needs more counter space and drawers. I got 3 hangars in the closet. TV on the wall is blocked from turning by the... More

We stayed at the griffin for two nights in August. Was given room 6 and everything that a previous reviewer had said about the room was true. However, we really enjoyed our stay and thought The Griffin was good value and the staff were very friendly. Breakfast was excellent on the Saturday and average on the Sunday. Also the bed... More

I stayed in a single room, which in my experience are never the best rooms, but it was clean and comfortable. Only real complaint would be the noise through the single glazed sash window (could be solved by moving the bed head away to another wall). Good breakfast and friendly staff. Great location. Would probably stay again.

The room was very dark, tiny bathroom. Thin walls, wy could hear what our neighbours are talking about. The carpet outide our room smelled funny. The location was good, fiew minutes from the centre, decent breakfast and friendly staff. Definitely not 4 star.
