We booked this hotel for my parents 30th wedding anniversary. They had a fantastic time and the customer service they received really added to the magic of their celebration. They were given a complimentary champagne and a decorative sweet and the staff could not do enough for them. They travel to many hotels around the world and both agree that... More

My husband and I stayed for one night on the 2nd August to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. Our room wasn't ready on arrival but our luggage was taken away whilst we walked into Bath for the afternoon. It's a short 10 minute walk away. On return our room was lovely with a view over the gardens. The only downside... More

Lovely location and good pool/spa facilities. However standard of service sadly lets this property down - check-in was very slow - only one member of staff. Breakfast was chaotic - my pot of tea had gone cold by the time I managed to get a cup & my room service order never materialised. What a pity

We really enjoyed our few days here. The cooked breakfast was delicious, best black pudding ever! Lovely setting only 15 minutes walk from centre of Bath. Spa pool and sauna were good and short walk in bathrobe and slippers from our room. Bedroom decor was a little tired and not 5 star standard as bedding and pillows were basic. Molten... More

The ground to the hotel are lovely and the drive up promises so much, however our stay was extremely good with disappointing elements, mainly due to a lack of attention to detail expected from such a highly rated establishment. On arrival we had quite a long wait at reception, guests were attended to out of order and the wait was... More

Summary: The MacDonald hotel spa has so much going for it, it's a real, real shame it's missed out of so many opportunities to bring this establishment to the excellence it currently only claim. It could learn a lot from hotels such as the Cape Grace in Cape Town, which does class and luxury without the pomp or pretension. As... More

We stayed at the Bath Spa hotel in early August to chill out after our wedding and Bath Spa Hotel was the perfect location and setting for this. Upon arrival Mohamed Safwat welcomed us warmly and was always a friendly face when we left or arrived back at the hotel. He made us feel very special and once he found... More
