The hotel is clean and in a great location. It is a little bit dated, old style, but being Bath i'm sure this is to appeal to tourists. The room was equipped with everything required and was clean and warm. The beds were very comfy and even though the room was positioned over the main road, the double windows means... More

We stayed at the Royal for just one night. Our room was small, cosy and very comfortable. The hotel has a lovely bar and restaurant, our meal was superb as was breakfast which was cooked to order. All the staff were cheerful and helpful. Would we stay again? Definitely.

Upon arrival the first huge advantage I noticed was how close this hotel is to the station - ideal if you are travelling by train and are carrying quite a bit of luggage! The hotel is a Grade II listed Victorian building and its so full of charm - its clearly a little dated i.e. creaky floorboards, old-fashioned wallpaper, etc.... More

We have just returned from a 2 night Travelzoo break at the Royal Hotel, Bath. It was an excellent deal, such good value and I found the Hotel staff so friendly. The Hotel was very clean and the food excellent. It was always served hot, and well presented. The only comment is that the floor boards are very creaky throughout... More

This hotel is in a great location, could not be any closer to the station if you travelling by train, and is close to many attractions. Hotel itself had a great deal of old school charm and we loved the Brunel design. Staff were friendly and helpful, room was a decent size, and breakfast was delicious. Would go back, and... More

Thank you very much for your review following your stay with us. I am delighted that you appreciate, as you describe it, the “old school charm” of our lovely hotel and that you also liked the Parisian brasserie style decor of Brasserie Brunel. I was particularly pleased to read that you plan to revisit us and thank you also for... More

A beautiful hotel with plenty of character, our room was of a very good standard, spacious clean, comfortable and well decorated. The staff were friendly and welcoming at all times. The restaurant is well worth a visit even if not staying in the hotel as the food was amazing. Will definitely visit this hotel again.

This hotel is just across the road from the train station, so a great location if you are travelling by train and also means it is in the city centre and a short walk to the main shopping area (with restaurants near the hotel too). We only stayed one night and the reception service was pleasant. The hotel has a... More

Only stayed for one night, and were on a budget so really pleased to find The Royal Hotel on travelzoo. Got a great deal including fruit in the room, cream tea (with fresh scones - tasted amazing!!), champagne and a three course meal. Food was pretty good, though our steak was overcooked and desserts a little shabby (pretty sure the... More

My wife and I visit Bath almost every year, but this was the first time we actually stayed in a hotel in the city. The hotel was in an ideal location right outside the train station and at the entry to the main city streets (actually opposite Debenhams department store). The staff were very friendly on our arrival. Our room... More
