I stayed here for two days 1 and 2 September. My room was ready on arrival and I was able to get a parking permit too. Parking is at a premium close to the hotel, but I was lucky to be able to see my car from the room. Check in was friendly and efficient. The hotel is a pair... More

Stayed at Duke's to celebrate my 40th, and we were both treated like royalty! From our fabulous upgrade, to fresh baked Madeleines at breakfast, we were throughly spoiled by the kind and caring staff. The hotel is located in a great part of Bath and is surrounded by history. Only a short 10 minute walk to the city centre, you... More

We stayed for two nights at the Dukes Hotel and had originally booked a superior double room only to find that when we arrived we had been up-graded to one of their four poster bedrooms, what a lovely surprise for us. I arrived before my partner who was coming from a different part of the country and as soon as... More

A beautiful hotel, full of individual charm and bespoke decoration. The rooms are a good size and clean the communal areas lavishly decorated and the breakfast well delicious. They say they have set out to creat a country house in Bath, and I would say they have very much succeeded. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. High recommend.

During our travel in South-England, we visited Bath for one day and stayed at Dukes Hotel. Everything was great including room (sufficient size, good bed, clean bathroom), location (near to the city centre), breakfast (good) and especially helpfulness of host. We would definitely choose this hotel again.

We visited for three nights for our wedding anniversary. It was so lovely to walk into a classical setting on one of Bath's finest streets. The rooms were beautifully presented right from reception to bedroom and staff couldn't have been more helpful. We had the option of a parking permit if we had needed it and advice on things to...

What a lovely review. As you note, we try very hard on our website and through the descriptions given by our reception team to present the rooms as they are. Dukes resides with two, Grade 1 listed, four storey Georgian townhouses – she is infact a rather faded old lady – rattling sash windows and creaking floorboards reflect the patina... More

Great location and accommodation at Dukes. Welcoming staff who were happy to help with recommendations of good food restaurants/ pubs. Our room was lovely opposite reception and our park was outside the main entrance. Bed was so comfy. Breakfast excellent. Next time will stay for at least 4 nights. Note this was our cheapest hotel in the UK and great... More

Though our room was on the second floor, which meant a trek with a baby, our stay at the Dukes was nothing short of fabulous. The most friendly staff to always greet you , our every request was met with a smile. The breakfast was tasty, the staff patient with a young baby. The room was spacious and neat ,... More

Thank you for the very positive recommendation. As you note we reside within two Grade 1 listed Georgian townhouses. This precludes the introduction of a lift. We offer rooms on each of the four floors and will happily assist with luggage. Our reception is open from early ‘til late – so give us a call and we will ensure you... More

Having never visited Bath, we wanted to stay somewhere special, and we were NOT disappointed!! Dukes is an exceptional hotel, the rooms are huge, the service is impeccable and it is close to the centre for tourists.
