I had no reservations when I arrived here in this city, but I can tell you that it was a fabulous experience starting from the time I walked into this hotel. The General manager Hector, actually walked approximately 2 blocks to help me carry my luggage! The whole staff was so friendly and caring. The bed was so comfortable, rooms... More

This was rated by people as a boutique hotel. What it is, is a small roomed "guest house". The room was tiny and the bathroom was only fit for a dwarf and not a fat one. The bedclothes were ripped and there was a dead mosquito on the wall when we arrived and it stayed there the whole of our... More

Stayed for two nights while attending a conference in Bath. Hotel is very centrally located and stylish, both inside and out Check-in and check out were very efficient and as we arrived before check-in time we were thrilled that our bags were taken care of and placed in our room for later. Room was very nice, extremely comfortable bed and... More

Just spent the weekend at The Halcyon, we were away for a girls weekend and this hotel was perfect. Staff were fantastic, room was lovely and breakfast amazing. The bar/club downstairs is great, good music and nice mix of people. Really central and parking opposite which was ideal. Would highly recommend and I would definitely return - thanks for a... More

Took my husband to Bath for a few days as a birthday treat. From the moment we checked in Hector and the other staff made us feel really welcome and recommended places to visit and eat. They even moved us into a bigger room. The hotel is a really central location so we packed a lot in.

Highly recommend The Halcyon Bath. We stayed at The Halcyon in May and were warmly greeted and taken to a lovely room on the first floor. Very quiet even though at the front of the hotel. We went to the bath spa in the afternoon and in the evening we had a few cocktails in the bar before eating at... More

The Halcyon is a beautiful Georgian building, well located in Bath very close to the new Southgate shopping centre and a few minutes walk from the railway station, shops and the Abbey. The staff were friendly and helpful and asked if we needed a map of Bath or any recommendations for dinner when we checked in for our 2 night... More

I booked a surprise two night break for my Mother and I in April. We had a wonderful stay at the hotel. On arrival the staff were so friendly and gave us a map and made many recommendations on places to eat. Our room was lovely, it was so quirky and there were funky red hot water bottles on the...

We stayed here for 2 nights. Lovely room. Not large but very comfortable and decoration in a calm sage green. A bit Farrow and Ball. Nice bathroom but a rather cold floor. Either wore socks or stood on the bath mat! All amenities in the bedroom and very comfortable bed. We were at the front and, like another reviewer, got... More

We stayed here for a girl's night away arriving on the Saturday afternoon. The hotel was very central to the shops, bars and clubs. The room was gorgeous, the shower was fab and the bed was very comfy. After a bit of retail therapy, we glammed up and went to The Circo which is connected to the hotel. We were... More
