The Boathouse is in a great location for visiting Bath as it is right next to a Park & Ride (£3.20 return). I would imagine the riverside location is beautiful in the summer!! We had a twin room which was a good size with a lovely big bathroom. Excellent powerful shower and nice toiletries. The Hotel is tastefully decorated, nice... More

Took advantage of Travelzoo voucher for dinner bed and breakfast for business trip to Bath/Bristol and it was excellent. All the best aspects of a riverside pub combined with very spacious and comfortable room well above chain hotel standards. Great accessibility (wet room and lift) which is more than usually provided in business hotels and good quality shower gel an... More

Needed a good clean, sticky tables and floors, brass door plates all smeared and had to ask for everything at breakfast. No side plates for toast, juice jugs empty waited ages to refill- no butter given with breakfast after asking got two triangles between two, tea was luke warm. All served by one girl in t-shirt and jeans. The setting... More

Chose this hotel for its location and we were not disappointed. Lovely room with windows that opened - always a plus. The bar service was good and the breakfast menu excellent. We would definitely go back and recommend to friends who wished to stay in the area.

We booked this hotel because we were looking for a good quality hotel which charged by the room rather than per person. I stayed with my elderly mother here for one night while visiting Bath. It is a most attractive building right on the edge of Bath at the end of Newbridge Road. It is located on the banks of... More

I would return to this establishment in a jiffy as I am often in the City anyway and it is one of the best I have found. Staff were amazing and the Hotel facilities for £85 a night were well above what I would expect, this together with the stunning riverside location made it all worthwhile. So what's wrong the...

We ate here previously and the good was superb, this time we decided to stay. The room was lovely, the vue from the balcony was beautiful. Breakfast was fab too, lots of choice which we weren't expecting! Would highly recommend to everyone!

I loved our stay here. All the staff were brilliant and extremely helpful. The rooms were clean with crispy linen and great showers. I must make special mention of the food though! I was thoroughly impressed two nights in a row, fresh, quality ingredients, perfect portion size and really tasty. I loved the setting here beside the river, it was... More
