“Perfect for a City Break”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

Clean well appointed room. Very helpful staff. Good choices for breakfast and plenty of food! Very quiet and disappointing if you want to enjoy a drink at the bar. This is practically empty of guests. Would be good if some form of Bar food was available
Perfect location for visiting the City - easy walking distance into the centre. We didn't use our car all weekend.
Very pleasant visit.

Room Tip: no lift available so ask for first floor room if stairs are a problem.

Cons:
Friendly staff
Refurbished bathrooms
Parking

Pros:
Tiny rooms
Cheap and small beds
Disgusting breakfast swimming in fat
Bad value for money

The location of this hotel isn't bad, but it's not exactly in the city centre. Anyone who has trouble climbing steep stairs should certainly look elsewhere.

Spent 2 nights over the weekend and was very pleased with this hotel. Finding a reasonably priced hotel in Bath was daunting task with so many reviews to go through but I'm glad I chose the County. The hotel is a short and pleasant walk to the centre over the river and from the breakfast room and our bedroom the views across the field to the Abbey are charming and remind you of the beautiful city you are in.

Some people have commented on the size of the rooms, we had a smaller sized room but was perfectly fine, shower and bathroom all good, and the view was perfect!

Breakfast was plentiful also, friendly staff, and parking outside the hotel. Would definitely book here on a return visit.

and it was.... Such attentive staff from start to finish, Lovely room with great views of the rugby pitch and Bath Abbey, especially gorgeous at night when it its lit up. The room wasn't the biggest in the world, however, it was beautifully presented and clean. A huge pat on the back to the staff. The Lady on reception and ladies in the breakfast room were so helpful and accommodating. True customer service which hopefully is recognised. So close to the city centre with free parking. BRILLIANT. Will definitely recommend and stay again.

Room Tip: Only a short walk away from the centre of bath, brilliant choice

Great base to explore Bath. Staff all lovely friendly and helpful, spotlessly clean comfortable room, good value. Breakfast was included in the 105£ per night tariff and was plentiful and delicious even the plunger coffee was great.

Room Tip: No lift so if you have trouble with stairs request a lower floor

This was our second visit with Season's timeshare and this time had a smaller room but with the same stunning view of the Abbey and surrounding buildings. Room clean, lovely towels and comfortable bed, but just a bit cramped.
There's no restaurant, but a good breakfast (pay extra) and a small bar area.
Car parking is fine, and it's a short walk into Bath centre to explore this lovely city and shop 'til you drop. Plenty of restaurants not too far away and an excellent and reasonable taxi service if needed.

Room Tip: ask for a middle rear room

Room was Tiny, for two of us to fit in we always had to be in a different sides of the room (and we are both slim people). We had the email from reception promising us first floor on a special request, we never got it, was allocated on the top and told they have no idea about the email. The room also was Very basic, definitely not 4* rating, more just the travel inn. No baths in the top rooms either. WiFi is only in the bar and reception area! English breakfast was awful, most of people were returning their plates half full! And we had to wait for it 30 min, as they lost our ticket, didn't get offered anything to make up for it.
But hotel was very clean and room had a great view over the city.
