Booked this hotel as it was very near to the main Bath attractions plus we are Best Western Card holders. We were not disappointed. The hotel is right by the Avon, just around the corner from the Roman Baths, The Abbey and the Thermae Bath Spa plus central to the vast number of shops and restaurants.We booked a 'larger room'...

We had a wonderful visit. The hotel's location is centrally located and easy walking distance to the main sites. Bath is a great walking town and very historic. The hotel has the same feeling. Modern amenities (no A/C!) in a quirky building.

Just spent a week here with my elderly mother. Ideal location in the centre of Bath and we were able to hire an electric scooter from the Shopmobility centre which is only 200 yards away. Food was excellent, staff friendly and helpful. We had two rooms on the ground floor which were spacious, well equipped and clean. Despite the hot,... More

I booked this hotel via booking.com under prepaid rate and provided credit card details. Later I got the notice that hotel can't charge my credit card. I was surprised as this card has successfully paid for many hotels + tour + train tickest in UK. However, I still changed to another card. Again they said the card was failed. I... More

I have just come back from an amazing weekend at this hotel. My friends and I were celebrating my big birthday. Everything was wonderful, the staff couldn't do enough to help, the rooms (cosy doubles) were lovely and the food was out of this world! We had a private dining area called "The Bolt Hole" and it was a superb... More

Great location in centre of a Bath next to the Abbey. Paid for larger room which was nice but bathroom poor with cracked tiles and dirty floor. Access to room 131 was confusing as it is stuck at back of hotel along corridor shared by kitchen staff crossing to restaurant This meant floor was slippery in places and stairwell smelled... More

Dear Terry M Thank you for your review, I appreciate that on a couple of levels we did not meet your expectations. With reference to the Bathrooms, we re-plumbed the hotel in the early part of this year to allow us to refurbish all the bathrooms and install more powerful showers and of course much improve the overall look.

I really enjoyed this hotel. It was in the centre of Bath and easy to walk everywhere around the town. Very clean and comfortable. We chose an Executive room which was very generous in size with a decent sized bathroom. The breakfast included in the price was served in the Allium restaurant downstairs and is a very pleasant and sunny... More

Dear Danioneill Very pleased to read that you enjoyed your recent stay with us and found so many positives to comment on. Air conditioning is becoming more of a necessity as we enjoy warmer summers and we do plan to install this across more of our rooms later this year. (of course that will guarantee a cold wet summer 2015!)... More

This hotel is centrally located, beautifully decorated and clean. We had the small cosy room which was perfect. The room was stylish with a modern classic twist and provided the extra little luxurious touches such as lovely dressing gowns and even the latest home and garden magazine. It was our anniversary and we were left a box of Thorntons chocolates... More

My husband and I really liked this hotel. It was a great location right in the heart of Bath, although SO hard to find in a rental car with GPS, and there is no parking at the hotel. They will give you a sign to put on the car while in the bus/loading zone, and then you must park down... More

A really wonderful stay at this delightful hotel, all the staff were extremely pleasant and friendly. The room was a little small but still very lovely with a view of the courtyard. The hotel is perfectly located right in the city centre so great for leisurely walks to all the sights

The Abbey Hotel is a privately-owned hotel in one of the best locations in Bath. Situated in North Parade, close to Bath Abbey, Pulteney Bridge, The Pump Rooms and the main shopping centre, it's the perfect base for exploring this glorious city, recognised as a World Heritage Site.

With 60 comfortable rooms, a lounge where you can enjoy coffee and drinks, and The Allium Brasserie selling drinks and meals throughout the day, the Hotel is a great place to unwind, whether you're here for business or pleasure. Watch the world go by from our pavement terrace over a cappuccino, light lunch or an early evening drink.Just opened: our brand new restaurant, The Allium Brasserie, created by our new former Michelin-starred Executive Head Chef, Chris Staines. It's set to become the most popular place to eat in the city.The Abbey Hotel is a member of the Best Western Group, so you can be assured the highest standards, with all the care and excellent service you'd expect from a privately-owned hotel. ... more   less
