Location: very good. Right opposite the train station. Can get slightly noisy with revellers and traffic but windows are strong and not much of the noise comes through. Lots of restaurants nearby. Staff: courteous and friendly. Hotel: very pretty structure - blends in with the stunning Bath buildings. Nice, comfortable, clean rooms with a nice bathroom. Lobby area is small... More

Having taken ages to find somewhere to park on a busy Saturday in Bath it was nice to be met by a cheery smile and welcoming face at reception. Our superior room at first glance looked great. Very well cleaned and presented. A nice room. That's the good bit. Later at night we realised that there was no way of... More

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

As one of the owners of The Royal Hotel, I wish to reply to the above review. Immediately this guest brought her concerns to our attention, we arranged for her to move to another room and subsequently the Duty Manager, accompanied by our housekeeper, inspected the room which she had complained about for any evidence of insects of any sort...

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.
