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

We had a travelzoo deal, £99 overnight stay with breakfast and 3 course evening meal. It was great value for money. The bar and restaurant has a cosy feel, the staff were all very friendly. 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

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.
