Lovely hotel with a suite overlooking Bath. Good service for the most part but very variable service over two days at breakfast - sublime to ridiculous. The scruffiest individual you could wish to meet served us on the second day - suit looking like it had been slept in and shoes that, if they had ever met a Kiwi, it... More

My daughter and I enjoyed a night at the Bailbrook House Hotel on a Christmas shopping trip to Bath. The hotel was lovely with a view over Bath, friendly helpful staff, spacious comfortable room. Excellent location for a shopping trip to Bath, the city centre is a short bus ride away.

We come to Bath once or twice a year and have in the past stayed at other hotels which charge twice as much for their rooms. Having read that Bailbrook House had refurbished all their rooms and had a fine dining restaurant we decided to book here for our December trip to visit the Christmas Market. We arrived midday Saturday... More

Most of the rooms are in a modern extension but have all you want, big comfy bed, newly refitted and so on, it’s a short £7 taxi ride from the city and has some great views from the bar and other areas around the main building. It’s a big place, and isn’t a ‘cosy’ country house hotel but id stay... More

The greeting by reception was excellent and all the staff were attentive and helpful . Our room William Pitt was well appointed and very clean . If we were only evaluating the hotel and staff it would easily achieve five stars . Unfortunately the Cloisters restaraunt let it down badly . At dinner my starter scallop with crab ravioli was...

We had a superb experience at Bailbrook House Hotel, 6th December 2013 in the Mansion House part. The room was fantastic(The John Wood), the bed very comfortable, and the bathroom out of this world. Everywhere, the quality of workmanship, interior décor, the fabrics and furnishings was first class, with lots of thought gone into the design and presentation. Housekeeping could... More

Having stayed at several Handpicked Hotels, this is way off the standard of others. What the hotel lacks is any charm or atmosphere, it very much feels like a conference centre. Our visit got off to a bad start with a chaotic check in. As the room wasn't ready, we went into Bath for a few hours only to return... More

The hotel is located outside Bath and as others have said, while walkable (just) if you are fit and have plenty of time, the road is not a particularly pleasant stretch, so just pay the £9 or so for a taxi and save the time. Whatever you do, don't try to drive in and park. Bath is NOT car friendly.... More

What a find. We stayed in the John Eveleigh suite and it was outstanding. All mod cons but beautifully furnished. The bathroom is something else with double shower, roll top bath and Tv. In fact there are 3 tv's in all! Views to die for and staff very friendly and helpful. We ate in Cloisters Restaurant and the food was... More

My wife and I stayed here for one night this week. The package was for a double room with dinner and breakfast.
