Stayed in the Royal Bath over August Bank Holiday weekend. What a lovely hotel! The rooms (we had 108) are very in keeping with the age of the property and are a great size. Breakfast in the morning was very good, you definitely won't go hungry. The staff are very friendly especially Heidi on reception who was a breathe of... More

Had an overnight stay at the Royal with my daughter and granddaughter (to spend some girlie time together) The staff were lovely, really friendly. Our beds were super comfortable, but the room being at the front of the hotel was extremely noisy. We had to open the window as it was so warm and there was no air conditioning. Other... More

It's really refreshing to find a hotel where all the staff are so polite. We used the Royal as a Base for the weekend. Superb location. We were greeted with a genuine welcome. I'm sure we all appreciate that Thank you

We stayed in this hotel as part of a spa package. The location is great (just opposite the station) but this also means that the noise levels in our bedroom were very high. It was hot and we had the windows open - waking up in the morning we felt we were sleeping in the bus terminal as a steady... More

I stayed here in 2012 and the Hotel was lovely. Great location as I traveled by train and ideal as its close to the centre of Bath. The room was small but comfortable and lovely little bathroom with shower. The food was excellent and the staff friendly and helpful at all times. Coming back soon with a friend

Thank you for your very nice review following your stay with us in 2012 and we are delighted that you are coming back with a friend, all of which leaves us a little surprised that you only awarded us one star – I hope that this is perhaps an error and that you will award us the number of stars...

We travelled to Bath by train and so the hotel was ideally situated as it was opposite the station.. My Husband had organised a 2 night break for me as a surprise for a special Birthday. He had booked a superior room with breakfast. The room was well stocked with everything we might need but I was so very disappointed... More

Thank you for your review following your stay with us. I regret that you felt that your room was too small to qualify as a superior room. As mentioned in our description of The Royal it was built in 1846 and is a Grade II listed building and, therefore, this results in the rooms being a variety of sizes and... More

This is a great centrally located hotel, just across from the station and the heart of town. When we arrived we were greeted by a very happy and friendly receptionist. The young lady was very helpful in giving us details of the city and what to do - plus a discount card for many of the attractions. Unfortunately the lift... More

This hotel is in an ideal position for the railway station and shopping centre. Unfortunately we couldn't open our windows and despite using the oscillating fan, the room was unbearably hot and stuffy. When I pointed this out to a member of staff they weren't sympathetic and told me that I should have asked for a change of room.. As... More
