Hotel reception desk is at entrance to pub. The bed in our room had not been made properly and had a lump in the middle. The bathroom was unclean with hairs in the bath. However the manger we spoke to he next day said she had been away and not been performing room inspections so maybe we caught the hotel... More

We used to come here regularly then a few incidents with awful food, uncooked prawns etc so we stopped. After a long day at work and years since the last visit we thought we would give it another go. Left early with the children and arrived for 7. Lovely table and menu looked delicious. It took a while for someone... More

On the banks of the River Avon, this pub, restaurant and accommodation is just gorgeous! The views from the balcony rooms are green and peaceful. The rooms themselves are well designed and beautifully decorated. The linen is soft and bright white. There is rowing memorabilia throughout the establishment which adds to the lovely feel of the place. In the bar... More

This hotel was very clean, comfortable, quiet and ideally situated for visiting Bath. The Park and Ride is just next door to the hotel, only about 200yds away and goes to Bath every 15 minutes. T The staff were very friendly and helpful and we would certainly recommend this hotel to our friends. The only comment we would make is... More

Stayed on a Sunday night. Beautiful room and great location on the river. We didnt eat there in the evening but breakfast was good with plenty of choices. A great place to stay when in Bath. Really convenient to park and ride for the city

We stayed overnight at the boathouse for our anniversary weekend. We had a room with a nice size balcony, which over looked the river Avon. The room was a good size, however the furniture was a little shabby, and the bed side table on one side did not match the rest of the furniture, and also was chipped with a... More

Celebrated a colleagues birthday here on the 20th August (10 of us in our group). Sat in the wonderful conservatory over looking the river. Good service, lovely food, nice atmosphere in a great setting. Ideal for lunch.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2014

the room was fantastic...clean and beautifully appointed with a lovely balcony area overlooking the river. It was handy to the park and ride to get into town. The nearby road was a bit noisy, and because of roadworks the entrance was hard to find. The food in the bar was great but service was very slow.
