My mother and I came to Bath for the Christmas market. It seemed like all the rooms in Bath were full but we managed to snag one room for one night at the Royal Hotel and we were very pleasantly surprised! Location was absolutely perfect for us as we travelled by train and the Royal Hotel is right opposite the... More

stayed for one night on December 7th. Staff very friendly, great service and centrally located. The food was excellent and even though the restaurant was full, we were able to sit in the main bar and order from the main menu. Overall, highly recommended.

Stayed at the hotel for 1 night on the 2nd December and must say the convenience was fantastic. It was across from Bath Spa and there is no necessity to drive to Bath. All the attractions were within walking distance. The Hotel would I say be a lovely quaint hotel with all the important facilities for a traveller. The lift... More

Thank you for your “lovely” review following your stay at The Royal We regret that because you are slightly claustrophobic you did not feel comfortable using the lift. We appreciate that the lift only takes a maximum of 3 people but given that The Royal was built some 160 year ago and is Grade II listed, it is impossible for... More

Such a convenient location, directly opposite the main entrance to Bath Spa Station, this is a basic and comfortable hotel with pleasant and welcoming staff. The decor is a bit tired and the rooms could do with a spruce up, but everything worked and the room was quiet enough to provide a good nights sleep.

This hotel, designed by the acclaimed engineer Brunel, is conveniently situated directly opposite Bath Spa railway station, Although we arrived three hours prior to check in time, we were able to store our luggage in a locked area. We took advantage of the DBB offer of £60 per person per night. Our standard twin room with en suite ( no... More

I have just come back Bath where I had a lovely stay at this hotel. I shared a twin room with my sister which was comfortable and spacious. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
