We stayed for a weekend at the Halcyon and were immediately welcomed into a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. The breakfast was very good with lots of selection and the location of the hotel was very convenient - a few minutes walk from the centre. The room was clean and comfortable, and particularly liked the... More

The staff were tremendously friendly and extremely helpful, location really central, mid week continental breakfast possibly the best I've had (more than just cereal and sliced toast) and our room was particularly quiet, being around the back....But, it wasn't really suitable for our 5 month old. With the cot that was provided, it was a little tight in the room... More

I really enjoyed my stay here. The hotel is boutique style, with lovely clean and crisp rooms. I like the little features such as the textured fabric of the bed cushions, matching the fabric cover of the stool. Lovely treats in rooms- cans of drinks, kettle chips, cookies and sweets. White Stuff toiletries and a good shower add to the... More

We stayed here for a few days as a late honeymoon (12 years late!). The room was small but very well appointed. The décor was fantastic, staff friendly and the continental breakfast was fabulous. Having a cocktail bar in the basement was especially good! Would definitely recommend.

I stayed here on a break for my girlfriend's birthday. We were greeted so warmly by the receptionist on check in and everything just got better from there. Comfy room too. The bar and restaurant that are linked to the hotel are also superb and well worth a visit.

We arrived in Bath without having booked a hotel. This place had great Lonely Planet reviews so called to see if we could have 2 rooms. Excellent service by Emily and Malika. We were checked in and off to our rooms very quickly. The ladies were extremely helpful in advising us of things to see and do in Bath, how... More

Public car park directly opposite .Good wide staircases up to a clean airy room with very smart bathroom and one of the best showers ever ! Bit unusual not to have a wardrobe as such but ample hanging space and drawers so no... More

Great location. Was able to park opposite and then walk everywhere during the weekend. Great bar downstairs. Very friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast was good. Rooms had everything we needed. Hoping to stay again soon.

Thoroughly enjoyed our overnight stay on Monday night. Room had all that was required for a pleasant stay. Bed extremely comfortable and really good shower! Only down side was light in bathroom not very good for putting makeup on ! Continental breakfast was adequate! Some fresh crusty bread or croissants would be nice! However would recommend to all.
