I have visited this venue a few times but never when the weather has been good. I thought the restaurant was wonderful, but it has exceeded expectations now the sun has finally come out! I sat outside with my daughter on the grassy area, the lovely soft jazz music drifting through the air, a cold glass of wine in hand... More

This hotel is in a perfect location on the banks of the River Avon and has a wonderful garden and terrace with plenty of seating. This is the absolute highlight of a stay here, particularly when, like us, you have wonderful weather. It is very popular with those stopping for a quick drink or a meal for obvious reasons. Added...

I stayed with my daughter at the Boathouse earlier this month when we visited Bath Spa uni which is literally 5 minutes up the road. The hotel is in a lovely location and during the summer sitting outside on the decking will be lovely, The food (both dinner and breakfast) were excellent and the room was one of the nicest... More

Today was my birthday and we booked a lunchtime meal for 12.30pm, after ordering our food, it finally arrived at the table at 2.25pm! Appalling service, will never go there again and walked out without paying. No particular reason given for service or apology.

My daughter and I were in Bath to celebrate our birthdays. The Boathouse is ideally situated with lovely views of the river and the Park and Ride is at hand, so no worries about parking in Bath. Our room was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed for our stay. The meals were excellent, my daughter had Eggs Benedict for... More

Lovley setting for drinks lazing by the river on a summers day - food has always been good here far from your average pub grub. Sometmes service can be slow, however the location completely counter acts this. Great for kids, couples, and families.

My girlfriend & I stopped off at The Boathouse last week after hearing good things about it. It was a weekday afternoon, so as you would imagine, it wasn't exactly busy, but we waited & stood at the bar nearly 10 minutes to be served a drink. During this time, there was 3 staff members doing various things that ignored... More

As you will see from my title, its the 2nd stay here at the Boathouse in Bath, I cannot fault the accommodation or the level of service given by the staff, the only let down in my opinion was the food I had for my evening meal. I went for a traditional Burger (boring I know) but its what I... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Boathouse on Tuesday night. We had booked a meal at the local Michelin Star Pony and Trap and needed somewhere close by to stay. We booked through booking.com. On arrival to the hotel we were a little confused about where to check in. We went in to the bar area and the exceptionally... More

All in all, a lovely visit. Got a great deal on Travelzoo which included evening meal and breakfast. All the food was of a really good standard, and the service from all the staff was friendly, efficient and warm. We were lucky enough to get a room with a balcony overlooking the river - a real plus and something I... More
