We stayed here for two nights so we could enjoy a weekend in Bath. The hotel is only 5 minutes walk from the centre of Bath yet is quiet without feeling detached from the city. The hotel managers David and Amy are friendly and helpful and managed to book a table for us at a busy city centre restaurant of... More

Lovely welcome. Charming and helpful staff. Spotless throughout. Room pretty and stylish (lovely thick towels and dressing gowns) with period features lovingly retained. restored - and very very quiet. Joy oh joy - parked right outside and could use Residents Parking permit! Would highly recommend. Staff warn you on booking about the stairs but there are rooms on the ground... More

We enjoyed a lovely long-weekend at Dukes Bath for our wedding anniversary. It’s always great to find an independent hotel with friendly service and loads of character! We had an anniversary card waiting for us in our room and small gift which was a lovely touch. The hotel is a five minute walk from the city centre, we took the... More

We stayed here for 3 nights on a city break in Bath. The hotel itself is in a Georgian building that is several hundred years old, which gives it a charm and history that ties in with the overall feeling of Bath itself. The hotel is located just over the bridge from the city centre, less than a five minute... More

My partner and I have just returned from a two night stay at the Dukes hotel. The location is perfect as it is near bath centre and all of it's sights, shops, bars and restaurants, the free parking permit is definitely an added bonus and you are able to park right outside the hotel. When we arrived the staff were... More

Decided to stay here mainly due to Trip Advisor and its central location. We were not disappointed. Checked in around 4pm and parking was made easier due to the permit we were given. We were in the Richmond room which was fine for what we wanted. We had already been around Bath but after check in, we went to the... More

Thank you for your very positive recommendation. We offer 17 unique bedrooms, ranging from our compact, functional rooms - ideally suited to those who simply want a convenient base in Bath - through to our two ‘four poster’ rooms that are a little more special! Delighted that you found our breakfast ‘sumptuous’ and our team ‘so friendly’. With thanks. More

Stayed here for a night recently, It is a magic little place. the room was beautiful, felt like I was in a period drama, beautiful antique furniture and the bathroom was lovely. It's such a pity they don't have a little bar as it would be a lovely place to sit and have a drink. The breakfast was fine, not... More

Thank you for the ‘high recommended’ commendation. As you note, most of our rooms are decorated sympathetically for the Georgian building in which we reside. We have a lovely garden terrace, a welcoming reception lounge and a bar adjoining the breakfast room! On your return we will treat you to a ‘glass’, compliments of the house. You need only to...

Stayed here for a night with my family to explore Bath and the hotel is absolutely beautiful. The staff were so lovely and welcoming and I could not fault it at all.

We stayed here for one night at the end of July and it far exceeded our expectations. Our room - the Beaufort - was a suite on the first floor, beautifully furnished, spotlessly clean and with two TVs. A short, easy walk away from the centre of Bath, it was a delight to return to our most comfortable accommodation and... More

The Holborne Museum, only a matter of yards from our entrance, features over 4,000 items collected by Sir Thomas William Holborne. In addition, unique displays and exhibitions are presented throughout the year. The work of Julian Opie, one of the UK’s most important and contemporary artists is currently there to be enjoyed. Delighted to read that we served as a... More
