We booked a short stay at the Macdonald Bath Spa Hotel on a whim after reading reviews on Trip Advisor. We were looking for a luxury and relaxation and this hotel met our expectations. Great location (only 15min walk from Bath centre) and beautiful building set in well-kept grounds. Throughout our stay, we enjoyed impeccable service from the staff - particularly Andrew and the concierge team, who were unfailingly polite and helpful. We enjoyed a good-sized room at the front of the hotel: spendid views of the garden and Bath at sunset, although sometimes a little noisy with the arrival of new guests checking in below. Continental breakfast in the ballroom was superb: a great choice on offer in beautiful surroundings.
Although expensive, the spa experience provided us with the pampering we'd been seeking. The highlight was the outdoor thermal pool, (we relaxed in the water for hours!), although improvements could be made to the surrounding walled area around the pool, which is rather bare and overlooks a car park and fire exit. We both enjoyed massage and facial treatments by friendly, knowledgable therapists, but the treatment and relaxation rooms could have been warmer. Lunch at the Alfresco restaurant was included in our package: good menu choices, well-presented, delicoius dishes served by attentive waiting staff. Each night we enjoyed pre-dinner drinks in the lounge - good variety of beverages on offer.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Macdonald Bath Spa and would certainly recommend the hotel to others seeking luxury and relaxation for a special occasion.
