We stayed 2 nights last Saturday and Sunday. Before going we requested a quiet room and got one round the back on the top floor - Room 9. A few people have mentioned watching out for the low ceilings before on the top floor. They aren't low but the roof slopes so you've got to watch out on one side... More

This hotel is about 2 miles from the Bath & West Showground so was ideal for the New Wine Christian Festival. Although close the main road we were not disturbed by the traffic. The room was clean and there was a roomy shower in the en-suite. We had dinner one evening and the food was fresh & tasty. Breakfast each... More

This review is a pre-emptive strike. To explain, we were in this pub/inn tonight and overheard a very loud dissatisfied customer arguing (in increasingly loud tones) with the proprietor - something to do with getting a refund on his room. The owners were polite, calm and seemed to be dealing with this customer in a courteous way, but he was... More

The hotel is at a good location, and is easy to notice. It has a large car park with lots of parking spaces. The town centre is within walking distance, albeit not that near (allow yourself at least 20 minutes to be safe!) The room was clean, with a rather spacious shower that had a good pressure. The staff were... More

Booked this hotel for just one night in June. The room was adequate for our needs though a little cramped. The breakfast was good and the evening meal in the inn was good pub grub. I would use it again as a stop over.

A really nice little hotel that isn't expensive is getting rare. The Highwayman Inn offers a good service which translates into excellent value for money. Given there is a bar restaurant open every day as well, it is an extremely useful place to stay as you don't have to go out at night after a busy day. The bar is... More

comfortable hotel. Perfect for business travellers. Bed was very relaxing and the shower hot and fast. Usual problem with electric sockets not near bed, but a small point. I had no wi-fi in my room, but was told it was a fault with the router.. The food was good pub grub. Cheap enough but also delicious and plentiful . .... More

We booked this inn via booking.com as we had no idea what accommodation was in the area. The photo of the outside was not flattering but those of the inside looked quite nice. The price of £49 per double room including breakfast seemed more than reasonable. We were extremely well looked after, with pleasant staff and a lovely modern ground... More
