This hotel was really great! Perfect location; literally right next to train station, right in front of the town center. Friendly, helpful people, clean rooms, and a modern bathroom with a rain shower!

Myself and my husband visited this hotel for our honeymoon. The Hotel Manager was knowledgable, friendly and interested in us and our stay. The room (studio) was spotless and well designed. Towels were large and soft, and the white company toiletries made it feel like a little piece of luxury! Our only wish is that they might serve a full... More

The deluxe room we had was small. Bed was comfortable and shower good, although the bathroom was not the cleanest. Breakfast was OK , but nothing special. WiFi worked well. We had a room at the front of the hotel, and I can imagine that the rooms will get hot in good weather since there is no air con. The... More

From start to finish this hotel has got it right. We were given such a warm welcome by the manager, it was as though we were long lost friends. Hector is knowledgeable, helpful and sincere, such a rare find in this sort of priced hotel. The room was bijou but wonderfully appointed. Great bed, fantastic sheets and brilliant shower. We...

We had a wonderful weekend in Bath staying at The Halcyon. The service provided by the lovely friendly staff was outstanding - nothing seemed to be too much trouble. The rooms themselves are beautifully decorated and the common areas of the bar/breakfast room and reception are very tastefully decorated, welcoming and comfortable. The central location couldn't be better for reaching... More

First, let me begin by telling you that I am very, very fussy and have stayed in some of the nicest hotels in the world. I have only just returned from a fantastic weekend in Bath and an outstanding weekend in the Halcyon Hotel. There were 13 of us staying at this beautiful boutique hotel which was located in a...

From the moment we walked into the Halcyon until the moment we left we were nothing but impressed with the hotel. The decor is very stylish, classy and clean. Our standard double room was nicely decorated and comfortable. The staff that we met (Adam, Hector and Bella) were second to none and I would go as far to say they... More

The Halcyon is a small boutique hotel, located 5 minutes from the train station and 3 minutes from the Abbey, in the heart of the lovely city of Bath. It's more like a big house than a hotel (no elevators, but only 3 floors). My room was not big but warm and pleasant, very comfortable. On the basement of the... More

We stayed at the Halcyon for a weekend away. It's in a great spot for the station and close to all the main sights and sounds. Our standard double was smart, clean and quiet (choose a third floor room if you want to be well away from the noise of the basement bar). It was on the small side for... More

This hotels greatest asset is its proximity to the centre of activities in Bath and is a clean ans tidy hotel recently revamped from the old George Hotel. I would perhaps question the term "Boutique" as genuine "Boutique" hotels such as Firmdale hotels in London are realiy beautiful in design and layout, this is good clean and reasonably well done,...
