“Comfortable and Convenient Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2014

This hotel is close to the city centre, an easy, level ten minute walk (with opportunity to change route) to the centre of Bath. It is well set back from the road, good car parking and, at the rear, views of Bath and the Rugby ground in the middle distance.
The rooms are well decorated and comfortable. The staff friendly and the breakfast excellent and not expensive. Cooked breakfast is to individual order and not half warm on a buffet.
Overall a quiet, comfortable base for your antsy in a city with lots to do.

Room Tip: rooms at the rear are quiet with great view.

We visited Bath to watch the rugby. This hotel is 5mins from the ground, you can see the groung from the car park, so suited us perfectly. It is also only a few minutes walk to the shops and restaurants. Off road parking is available at the back of the hotel, a pass will be given to you when you check in. We visited at a bank holiday wkend but this hotel being on the very edge of town meant we werent bothered by any crowds or noise.
The hotel itself was clean and tidy. The staff were lovely and helpful. We had a lovely visit and will definately go back :-)
I think the hotel mention it in their advert but i would like to confirm that there isn't a lift, just stairs. Didnt bother us though ;-)

We have stayed several times at 'The County Hotel', usually in February or March. It is always warm and welcoming; the staff are very friendly and helpful and helped us with our luggage as there is no lift.

The rooms are always comfortable and well-equipped, though some can be rather small for two people. They are clean and the showers always work well.

It is such a bonus to be able to leave our car in the hotel car park and walk into the city. It usually takes us about 15 minutes. There is so much to see in Bath. This time we also visited the American Museum, which is a few minutes by car from the hotel.

The breakfast is reasonably priced and we have always found it more than adequate. We are delighted that there is now a restaurant on site and look forward to trying 'Blunos' next time we come.

Room Tip: As there is no lift, we recommend a 1st floor room if you find stairs a problem.

My wife and I stayed for 3 nights and loved this beautiful old hotel
The rooms are smallish but very clean, good decoration and well appointed
The location is a few minutes walk from the centre of Bath and the hotel parking is great
Attached to the hotel is the magnificent Blunos restaurant
Hotel staff are efficient and very friendly, well directed by the ever smiling manager Erin

Have just had a stunning lunch at Blunos, food was superb as was the service. My Scallop starter was the best I have ever tasted.We were personally greeted by Martin who chatted at out table and he even made my wife special Truffles with a birthday greeting. An absolutely wonderful experience.

my wife and I have stayed at The County many times and have always had a really lovely break there.
The location is superb along with free parking ( which is definitely a bonus when staying in this lovely City ). There is a pleasant short walk into the City centre.( I'm 71 and it takes me less than 10 minutes ) but the best advantages of staying in The County Hotel is the comfort and cleanliness of the rooms, a lovely breakfast each morning but most of all the staff. they make you feel really welcome, are friendly and most helpful. We love visiting Bath and would never consider staying anywhere instead of The County. Looking forward to our next visit.

Room Tip: lovely views from the rear of the hotel overlooking the City and magnificent cathedral

It sits a little way outside of the main city, but it is a small price to pay to be able to park. We had no problem walking everywhere we wanted to go. The staff is fantastic and the building has great views. It was worth staying here for the breakfast!
