Such an amazing place, the staff were very helpful & nothing was too much trouble. Room service was always delivered prompt and with a smile. The facilities are amazing and the treatments are relaxing and such a credit to the place. Cannot wait to return.

I booked 2 nights at the hotel for myself & my husband for his birthday. I was a little nervous about the trip as I had seen some very mixed reviews that had been posted recently. My fears were completely allayed. The hotel was wonderful, The (upgraded) room was stunning, the food to die for with a HUGE selection of... More

Booked this place as birthday treat for my fiancé but instantly regretted after they took my money over the phone and then decided to tell me that the building has scaffolding around it. It took over 50 minutes to book what I though was something quite simple with someone who put me on hold over 10 times! I then rang... More

One of our favourite hotels charming helpful staff peaceful elegant surroundings, excellent spa and good restaurant. It has excellent grounds and is within easy walking distance to Bath. As frequent visitors we always look forward to our visits especially as UK residents we don't have to endure the hostility of travelling through Heathrow Airport.

A big disappointment! The non-active recovery break was not the pampering experience I was looking for. Mini-manicure and pedicure were minimal- nail-filing and painting, nothing more. the mini -facial was fine but too short to be effective and they use Elemis, not Decleor as advertised, which my sensitive skin did not like. I paid extra for a leg wax -which... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel on Monday 21st July to celebrate our 2 year wedding anniversary. Everything about it was wonderful. The receptionist was very friendly and helpful and gave us lots of useful information about the hotel and what to do in Bath. The room was luxury and the restaurant served us the best meal we've...

Loved this hotel. Rooms were spacious and clean. Spa treatments good. Nice area to sunbathe. So convenient to walk into Bath (10 mins). Staff very pleasant. Only negative part was speed of service at the bar, and at breakfast. Also price of drinks were astronomical.

3 night stay The room was large, clean, opulent but dated (oak panelled bathroom) Reception staff were friendly & helpful. The restaurant staff were courteous but snobby (the Maître d' only seemed to be interested in the foreign guests) Breakfast was ok but disappointing for a top rate hotel & a little slow in coming out. The 10 minute walk... More

Have stayed at this hotel many times, whilst visiting my daughter and I must say they went above and beyond this time, to make sure our stay was perfect. Many thanks to Mohamed, for looking after us so well and to Jeremy on concierge for the extra treats. All the staff are pleasant. We have eaten many times in the... More

I've stayed at the Bath Spa Macdonald hotel twice and both times the experience has been exceptionally good. The grounds of the hotel are stunning, situated in gardens behind The Holburne Museum. The interiors are best described as traditional - some areas are very well presented (i.e. bar and restaurant) however the rooms are a little old-fashioned and don't reflect... More
