This hotel was such a lovely surprise after a long journey from London to Bath! We stayed in a studio room and it was spacious, clean and had everything we needed. The location of the hotel is perfect!

We stayed in the Halcyon for one night after a wedding party in Bath, and it was pretty disappointing. At almost £150 a night I was expecting something 'luxurious' - that's the way they market themselves anyway. The room was tiny - so small that there was only room for a bedside table on one side of the bed. The... More

Great location opposite a car park (£12.50 for 24 hrs), and close to station and centre of Bath. Very friendly helpful staff on reception. Very clean room with good shower. No drawers or wardrobe in room so had to live out of a suitcase. Only place to hang clothes was from a frame in front of the mirror. Cannot not... More

Great location for all the sights of Bath. Avoid the Manvers St car park, as recommended by the hotel: too cramped and frequented by the homeless at night. Instead, park at the Bath Cricket Club, about a 4 minute walk away. The hotel is a curious mix of great and less impressive aspects. The whole place feels run down, needing... More

Annual visit to Bath made and for the third year stayed at the Halycon and will be back next year! Just love it here, the best location for the train station, great rooms, friendly staff and amazing cocktails.

We stay at the Crescent when in Bath, however, on this occasion, we tried something new. It was a refreshing change. The method of reception was a little disjointed and quirky, but not off-putting. Very good rooms. TV and radio technology not all it could be. Generally, a very place to stay for people who do't want the fuss of... More

We had such a great experience at The Halcyon. The location was very close to the train station (2 blocks) and very convenient to most everything else. We walked everywhere we went. Our rooms were very comfortable and looked great. The rooms technically do not have WiFi, but many of the rooms can connect to the lobby WiFi. There is... More

Central and convenient position in city. Public car park very close. Attentive and friendly service. Clean room. Historic building with no lift to 3rd (top) floor room. Not cheap, but Bath hotels in high season tend to be pricey. Would recommend subject to points above. RF, London

Nice hotel within strolls pace of all main places of interest. Rooms (standard plus) are comfortable but very small so book a larger one or an apartment if you need space. Public areas need a bit of paint as beginning to look tired. Staff all very helpful amd friendly. Great cold buffet breakfast.
