A fantastic hotel situated in the centre of Bath. On arrival, Jenny the receptionist was absolutely fantastic- she made us feel very welcome, friendly and knowledgeable. On leaving the hotel she was equally helpful and lovely and genuinely cared if we had a good week. You don't see that level of service in most hotels. Our room was the Frances... More

We enjoyed staying at this hotel just before Christmas and the fact that it is very central was great for us. We thought out bedroom and we thought the bed was soo comfy we even bought a mattress the same !! Clean, smart but welcoming and a great breakfast, all in all a good stay.

Dear Littlejem52 Great to hear that you loved the bed so much you bought one! So many people ask us about them, they are custom made for us but hey do sell an almost identical version and as you know you cannot beat a comfy bed. Hope to see you in Bath again soon, at least you know you will... More

Would not normally book a 3* but had good reviews. Its getting some upgrades done but not finished yet. It will be a very good 4* or possibly 5* when finished. Dinner fantastic. Cooked breakfast a bit tasteless. Would go back without any question. By the way Superb Views.

We usually avoid 'chain' hotels but chose this because of its location, within easy walking distance from Bath Spa station and the town centre. The staff were very welcoming and helpful and the room was spacious and comfortable. We arrived before check in time but they found us a room straight away. The breakfast was very good - all good...
