“Great hotel (if you are paying half price)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2011

My husband and I stayed for a 2 night break (taking advantage of the half price room deal in January). We had a superior room and it was lovely. Really high ceilings, sunny and spacious. The bathroom could do with a revamp as it just didn't seem in keeping with the spec of the bedroom - though the shower over the bath was very powerful.

We had breakfast at the hotel on both mornings and this was a real highlight for us - to be able to take time over breakfast was wonderful. You can either have the continental option (£10) or the cooked (£15) which also includes the continental spread (croissants, toast, dried fruit, porridge, granola, meat, cheese, fresh fruit and juices, yoghurt etc.). We had dinner at the Olive Tree on the first evening and it was delicious and very special. There is a lovely bar for pre-dinner drinks and the whole ambiance of the place was very relaxing (we stayed Sun and Mon).

A couple of criticisms:
The matress on our bed was absolutely dreadful and I spent half the night unable to sleep. We both had a very sore lower back in the morning which has never happened before. It was far too soft and the springs could be felt from just sitting on it. I spoked to reception and housekeeping put a board underneath it for the second night (this was room 9) . This was really disappointing.

Not having tea and coffee facilities in the room is a pain, especially for the first cup of tea in the morning. The complementary tea and coffee served downstairs is fine in principle but everytime we went the hot water was luke warm.

We had a lovely time in Bath - visited the Thermae spa and the old roman baths and did lots of shopping/eating.

All in all we had a lovely time and would highly recommend the hotel but make sure you check the bed when you arrive, take a travel kettle if you want hot drinks in the room and keep an eye out for special offers. We wouldn't have wanted to have paid full price (£220 per night room only).

From the initial welcome at the door to checking out after breakfast, our whole stay was so relaxing. We were staying in a numbers of hotels across the country throughout October, and the Queensberry was by far our favourite. The rooms and bathrooms are well designed. Little touches from the quality of the furnishings to the music playing in your room on arrival make the whole experience a complete pleasure. Best breakfast around...including the coffee!

I loved bath, it was my first time, a mix of business and pleaseure. the hotel is in the beautiful historic quarter (although it seems that all of bath is in the historic quarter - stunning city!) near Queens Crescent and a short walk to the museums and city centre.
the staff were most helpful with valet car parking. we were given a spa package outfit to use at the thermae baths (which is a surreal magical experience especially at sunset).
the hotel restaurant was delicious too, perhpas a little overpriced so try to eat at lunch time when the menu is the same but cheaper. the rooms are big and airy, clean and modern. breakfast was delivered to the room fresh and hot. i would reccomend this hotel and Bath. i cannot wait for the excuse to go back!

Perfectly located for walking Bath. Quiet, comfortable and attentive staff. I was thoroughly
pleased with the accommodations arranged for Serendipity Traveler's English Garden tour.
Our women travelers loved this hotel. We would gather each evening to compare notes and sip a glass of wine in a comfy library before going out for dinner.

My wife and I stayed here for a one-night weekend break from London. As other reviewers have said, this is an excellent hotel, in a convenient location just a few minutes walk out of the city center.

We stayed in room 31, a classic room on the top floor with nice views over the edge of the city, and it was outstanding. We had considered paying more for a larger room, but there was really no need.

The room was decorated, furnished and lit beautifully. The room came with a sofa, a decent-size flat-screen TV with built-in DVD player (wall-mounted so you could watch it from the sofa or the bed) and a stereo with iPod dock (which gave very poor sound quality when playing my iPod for some reason, but played the radio just fine). The bathroom was very modern and had a large bath with a fantastic rain shower. Everything was very clean and well maintained. The only possible complaint with the room was that the beds are very soft, though we still slept well.

The hotel has a nice-looking lounge and bar, though we didn't have time to make much use of either.

The breakfast buffet was quite good (the excellent home-made muesli, perhaps the best I've ever had, was a highlight), though we were sad that they had run out of croissants and were low on other pastries even though we came down 15 minutes before the breakfast was supposed to end.

The one bad experience of our stay was dinner in the attached restaurant, the Olive Tree, which was overpriced and had extremely slow service. If we ever come back to Bath, we'll probably stay at this hotel again, but will definitely go elsewhere for dinner.

We stayed with our daughters the night before one of them got married and had more of the family meeting there. Everything from a great meal the night before, late night glass of milk, to on tap great coffee in the lounge was just what we needed. This hotel is a gem.
