We had a lovely stay at Bath Spa Hotel and it's in beautiful grounds in a fabulous location. However, the prices for drinks, room service and treatments are over the top and we would return again if they had a more realistic view of prices. Also, we thought it was a bit galling to add on an additional charge for... More

The rooms as a whole are a nice size. We had a garden room, but it was a bit dark and dingy and had scaffolding erected outside which spoilt the view somewhat. The room could have been cleaner, it was a little dusty I am shocked that it is rated above 3 stars! Restaurants were good if a little expensive... More

The building and gardens are stunning. About 15 mins walk into the centre of Bath.....beautiful dining room serving a very tasty breakfast. The bedroom was very nice, all lovely and clean. BUT found the staff rather snooty and not passionate about their work. The spa reception is very un cheery, no information offered on their facilities, no enthusiasm which is... More

This was our first visit to Bath and our first to a Macdonald hotel and it won't be our last. From the moment we arrived the staff could not have been more welcoming. The food was excellent, and the breakfast was outstanding. Special praise to Brian and his staff. The garden view room was excellent with a most comfortable bed.... More

Personally I would rate this hotel as a 4 star not 5. The service was ok but I've had much better in other 5 star hotels. We had a 15 minute wait for breakfast and was told this was due to everyone coming down at once. However, I believe that if the breakfast room had more than 35 tables to... More

Our honeymoon was spent here, firstly greeted by a lovely receptionist, we were then escorted to the spa for our booked in couples massage. It was truly amazing although I thought paying an extra £20 to have a double room with hubby to enjoy our massages was a bit steep..our four poster bed upgrade was a surprise as was the... More

We stayed having booked through Secret Escapes.our first floor room looked over the beautiful gardens.Very comfortable bed and pillows, lovely Molton Brown toiletries in the bathroom. We didn',t use the Spa, only because of lack of time, but the Spa staff showed us around and made us feel very welcome. We loved the cosy bar, breakfast and dinner was exactly... More

in a word - Superb! We were fortunate enough to spend one night at this beautiful hotel, located within gentle 10 minute stroll of city centre. Ideal for celebration, anniversary, birthday or simply as a treat. Our room, ground floor ‘garden’ view was of a good size, large well equipped luxury bathroom with Molton Brown toiletries. Dinner in the Vellore... More

My friend and I stayed in a twin room with a spa package. The spa was wonderful, treatment relaxing. The outdoor pool was like a hot bath. The facilities superb, the staff friendly and attentive. The food gorgeous. The most expensive cream tea I have ever bought but loved every mouthful. I have already recommended this hotel to friends. My... More

My husband and I have just spent 3 days in this lovely hotel. Brian the Restaurant Manager and his staff were extremely professional and helpful, Mohammed and his staff (front of house) were equally professional. Thank you for a memorable stay.
