I have submitted a review of the restaurant, which was disappointing. However the people here were friendly and the room was fine. Not top class, but pretty good. Nice view from the balcony. Nice to look over the River Avon.

Travelzoo offer for five couples overnight at a most friendly , welcoming Pub/ Hotel. Fantastic food served by helpful Staff. All rooms were clean, spacious and comfortable. Location beside the River Avon with superb views and the added bonus of being within 100 yards of a Bath Park and Ride service. All made for a great stay.

We were given a nights stay with evening meal as a present via Travelzoo. Booking was easy and we were given a room with deck/balcony which unfortunately we couldn't use to its full potential because of the weather. The room was nice and well appointed. Staff were very helpful and friendly. The food in the evening was lovely and the... More

Got this on a deal on Groupon and loved it. Boathouse rooms nice and some have balconies overlooking river. My recommendation is room 5 as you could have a party on the balcony. Food was very good especially surf and turf. Breakfast was good and only disappointment was that all had poached egg and most of us like runny yolks... More

Visiting Bath for the weekend and the Boathouse was a most welcoming place to be. Lovely bar and room along with the service. Food is excellent and we shall most certainly come back again. Set along the river you get a wonderful view of the Countryside set in the beautiful frosty morning, well worth the chilly walk after a hearty... More

Room 4 had a nice balcony, was spacious and very clean. Breakfast was excellent . My only complaint was Stilton stuffed mushrooms were flat mushrooms... More

We were there for a night's stay for my birthday. The initial room that we walked into was fine but the bathroom was a disabled one and not clean. Although I did mention it while booking that I would like to have a clean bathroom. So when we mentioned this to the reception we were offered a different room which... More

We had a travelzoo voucher for an overnight stay. Went mid week in November and the hotel bar and restaurant were buzzing. Food was excellent and rooms very comfy. It would be lovely in the summer months when you could really take advantage of the riverside location. Staff were very helpful and polite. The hotel is a short drive from... More
