We stayed in The Ayrlington in the Victoria Room. The room was very clean and the bedding was very comfortable. The Bathroom has a nice long tub ( not suitable for short legs as u skid into water :-) ). The TV was small for which ofcourse did not matter to us. There was also a music player with nice... More

We stayed for three nights in the garden room. The room was very clean and bright with a nice outlook of the nicely kept lawn. Bathroom was in need of updating and toilet made a noise when flushed. Service was good and staff friendly. We did have to ask for toiletries to be replenished though. Breakfast was excellent. Overall the... More

We were very pleased with our stay here. Our room was thoughtfully decorated with a very comfortable double bed and good-sized bath. The hotel is a bit of a walk from the city center but we appreciated the quietness at night that we desired. We enjoyed the views from our top-floor room of Bath and the garden below us. Breakfasts... More

What can I say? Very friendly and helpful staff. Rooms well equipped. Bed comfortable if a bit shorter than I am used to which was down to the shape of the room. Breakfast was tasty. Only odd thing was that the bar had no chairs! To be fair they were reupholstering the chairs so some others were rapidly brought in... More

Staff were friendly and hotel was comfortable. It could do with some modernisation though. The room was a bit tired and it certainly didn't look five stars. It seemed over priced for the standard. Breakfast very nice.

Have just spent two nights at the Ayrlington. The room was excellent,the bed very comfortable. The breakfast was freshly cooked,hot and very tasty. I would happily recommend this hotel. The hotel is within flat walking distance to the city. An ideal base for a long or short stay.

The location is great - free parking onsite and and a short walk into the city centre (under 10 minutes.) Reception staff very helpful and knowledgable about the local area, although nobody available to help us with luggage to our room (no lift, and our room was on the top floor). Our room was quite pretty, spacious, long and narrow,... More

We stayed for a couple of nights over the NY - this is a splendid property with comfy rooms that we just large enough. Very well kept - very quiet - very friendly service. Location was about 10 minutes walk from the Roman Baths so convenient enough. Breakfast was very nicely done. Overall good value for money

What a beautiful B&B! This was my favorite room we had on our entire 1 month European trip. The hotel is very quaint and nicely decorated. We arrived and settled into our room to Mozart music from the CD player and hot tea! The room is very romantic and spacious with a large bathroom. We had a corner room with... More
