What a fab spot and really nice building with a New England feel about it...but that is it. It started to go wrong when I visited the loo (barely able to close the door due to tiny size) and no loo paper. Checked the other 3 and only 2 had any at all, and this at the beginning of the... More

Went to The Boathouse for the second time against our better judgement and we won't be going back again. We ordered at the bar and sat outside as it was a lovely day. It has a lovely spot on the river with ducks roaming around though it's a bit spoilt by dog ends everywhere and paper napkins in the bushes.... More

On the first night we ate at the hotel and enjoyed a lovely three course meal. The breakfasts which we ate in the conservatory set... More

This is an ideal place for exploring Bath! First thing is how comfortable and stylish the Boathouse is in every way. The staff are friendly and welcoming but not over the top and every meal we had was very good secondly the park and ride is adjoined to the car park making it easy to get back and forth to... More

My better half and I stayed for two nights whilst visiting family locally. Having lived near to Bath some years ago, we knew the location of The Boathouse and thought it would better than staying in one of the big hotel chains (which it really was). What a pleasant surprise we had. Booking in was easy and speedy with a... More

Stayed at the Boathouse on our way to Devon at the end of December. Good location next to the river and countryside setting. Check in was simple and quick, our room did not have a balcony overlooking the river but was modern and had all that we needed for a short stay. Free WiFi in the room. We enjoyed an... More

You simply cannot get a better place to stay in Bath. Sincere, gorgeously decorated rooms with all the comforts you need. Firm beds but doesn't detract at all from the experience. A truly cosy restaurant and bar with a great menu and breakfast was complimentary and delicious. Simply a must stay
