Booked this hotel as we've stayed in many Holiday Inns in the past and always found them to be efficient and well run. We requested early check in, which came through on our email confirmation. Arrived an hour after early check in time requested only to find the room wasn't ready. We were told check in time was 3pm! Rhys... More

Dear Sorel R, Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback on your experience at our hotel. I am sorry you were disappointed with your check in.

Stayed here as a base for Bath and Longleat. The staff are extremely helpful and accommodating. Room is very clean as is the bathroom. The rooms are cleaned every day (stayed there for 2 nights). The beds are uncomfortable but think any bed that's not your own is uncomfortable. The breakfast was very disappointing. Selection was ok but the quality... More

Stayed here for two nights with teenage daughter on girly adventure. Hotel was clean and tidy, beds comfy. We slept really well. My girl said she would have liked bacon for her breakfast which is basic, but free. Free wifi was very useful. Thanks Holiday Inn. We will definitely stay again.

We've stayed at many Holiday Inn Express ... and always find them to be good values in convenient locations with courteous staff ... this one was no exception.

Holiday Inn Express, as I have said before, is a dependable brand. Yet I would have rated this hotel as only average because, well, it was unexceptional. Its location is central-ish to Bath - there are other hotels closer to the centre. It has a car park, enough, I am told, for 60 cars, but you have to pay an... More

Stayed one night, two rooms. Reasonable rate compared with other hotels in the area and not too far to walk to the main sites. Quick check in, clean room with everything we needed for a nights stay.

This Holiday Inn lives up to expectations, staff are bright and helpful (if a little thin on the ground when checking in) and the public areas clean and smart but lacking atmosphere. Breakfast is good and includes some hot food. Bedrooms are fine and well equipped but starting to look shabby, a bit of peeling wallpaper here and there and... More

Pros – Clean comfortable (although very small) rooms. Friendly and helpful staff. Fairly close to the main town centre (about a 15 min walk). Lots of parking (but not free). Free internet. Cons – Overlooking a cemetery. Bit of a walk to the main town area but manageable. Feeding frenzy at the free breakfast which is mediocre at best but... More

For me, the best thing about staying at Holiday Inn is the reliability factor - you always know what you'll get. This is why we again chose H.I.when in Bath. The tariff I must say was a bit more than expected: £129 plus another £10 to park the car, but it is the top of the season I told myself... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Stay at the popular Holiday Inn Express Bath hotel and explore Bath's historic city centre on foot. Holiday Inn Express Bath's modern interior contrasts with its warm, honey-coloured Bath stone exterior. We're a short stroll from the historic city centre, where you can take your time with a relaxing session at Thermae Bath Spa. We are also close to Bath Spa train station for regular trains to London Paddington and Bristol Airport is a 40-minute drive. We're 10 minutes' drive from meetings at Bath's 3 Ministry of Defence offices and the University of Bath campus. Bath Spa University is only 5 minutes from Holiday Inn Express Bath by car. Avoid the traffic when visiting Helphire Group PLC and Amdocs, minutes away on Lower Bristol Road. The convenient Holiday Inn Express Bath is a 10-minute walk to the elegant Pump Room at the Roman Baths and the Grade I-listed Royal Crescent. Learn how the city inspired one of England's favorite writers at nearby Jane Austen Centre. Kids love mini-safaris at Longleat's rambling estate, a 30-minute drive away. Wake up to sausages, baked beans, scrambled eggs and more as part of the free breakfast buffet and watch Bath come to life from the windows of the airy Great Room. Our friendly Front Desk team will give you information on day trips to Glastonbury and Stonehenge. 60 onsite parking spaces are available at a charge and allocated on a first come first served basis. Wi-Fi is free for guests who book direct with the hotel. ... more   less
