I would not hesitate to recommend this perfectly located hotel in the heart of the city centre, literally a stone's throw from Bath Spa station. Excellent, knowledgable staff who knew who you were and your room number without being asked; All meals taken were faultless, and service extremely good; bedroom and bed was very comfortable, with lots of extras which...

This is one of the best hotels I have stayed in. The service was second to none. The staff were always pleasant, helpful, happy and knowledgeable. They knew all about your booking and had everything you needed to hand. They explained about dinner, breakfast, WiFi etc without you having to ask. The food was excellent. The room and facilities were... More

Check in was smooth and the man on the desk very helpful. When I got to my room I checked the sheets to make sure they were clean and they were crawling with some sort of insect which jumped when I tried to squash it. They looked like head lice but bigger. I reported this to reception and they moved... More

Have just returned from a girlie break in The Royal Hotel and cannot recommend it highly enough. From the moment we arrived the staff couldn't have been more friendly or helpful, from the reception and restaurant/bar staff to the Housekeeper and the lovely lady who cleaned our room. The Hotel is in a fantastic position next to the train station... More

This hotel is typical of older city center English hotels. Comfortable, very small but well worn and rather expensive. My room was clean and genuinely comfortable, but it is good thing my wife was not with me as the rooms do not comfortably accommodate more than one client. The staff were surprisingly friendly and helpful -- a nice positive, especially... More

Thank you for your review which unfortunately was a mix between enjoying your stay with us but with some negatives. I am surprised that you found your room smaller than you would have liked. Unfortunately we are not aware from your review which room you stayed in but if it was a double or twin room, then your comment is... More

Have just returned from a two night stay at this hotel, conveniently located opposite the station and in the centre of Bath. It was excellent value for money and the breakfast was first class. Dinner on both nights was excellent too and the staff were really friendly and efficient.

I had a very comfortable stay at this clean, tidy hotel. It's very close to the rail station, making it ideal for tourists. Food served in the morning was delicious. Staff are friendly. We paid £80 for one night stay and breakfast- down from £135. In all honesty, I would have been disappointed if I had paid £135. The decor... More
