“Xmas shopping trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

Four of us (2 couples) booked in for 2 night stay.Location was suitable as the bus stop was right outside the hotel for our xmas shopping trip into the city. (20 mins.) Staff were very helpful and a super choice at breakfast time.I did think a better bar area was needed and open till 11.00 for that last nightcap before turning in after a hard days/evening shopping.We did enjoy the stay and will return.

Room Tip: Choose a room at the front as you can hear people coming and going at rear.

We visited Bath Christmas Markets and booked into The Bailbrook Lodge hotel which I found on the internet. I couldnt have found better, the hotel was warm and comfortable, the food was excellent, and the staff could not have been more helpful, nothing was too much trouble, we were able to leave the car at the hotel and catch the bus into bath with the bus stop being 50 yards up the road. We are hoping to return to Bath in the summer of 2013 (thats if we have one) and we will stay at the Bailbrook Lodge again.many thanks for looking after us so well. Mike & Sandra H

We normally don’t stay this far out of town when visiting Bath. However I was delighted to find that the distance did not cause us any problems. There is a very good bus service into the city and the bus stop is about 200 meters form the lodge. On the occasion I did take the car into the city the journey was painless. Our room was very cosy and had all that we needed what a change to find that the wardrobe had more than enough coat hangers so we did not have to share. Breakfast was an occasion with a very good choice on the menu plus bucks fizz if you wanted. The staff were very helpful to me and my wife who has advanced Alzheimer’s disease. Over breakfast they showed great patients and understanding. Unlike other accommodation in the city there was a good car park off road which was free. The lodge serves snacks throughout the day with a set meal in the evening; however we did not sample any food other than breakfast. I will certainly consider staying at the lodge if we visit the city again. My thanks to all for an enjoyable stay.

Booked a 2 day break with an upgrade to one of the Four Poster rooms.
Staff throughout the stay were polite, cheerful and helpful - great customer service.
We loved the huge bedroom and shower room with all the usual facilities, and were even offered fresh milk with tea in the room.
A Gluten intolerance caused no issues at breakfast which was superb, and if your booking includes an afternoon tea - be prepared for sandwiches, crisps and a cream tea (no issue with the sandwiches- and an improvised cake with jam meant no Gluten issues again) we couldn't eat it all !!!
The hotel is not right in Bath itself but we used the bus service and we were walking round the town within 15 minutes of leaving the hotel.
A great break and would definitely go back.

Room Tip: I think we were in the Jane Austin suite and provide you are happy with a shower room, it was great.

The location is good, as was the welcome and the breakfast. They obviously take customer comfort seriously. I think we got the last room on a crowded weekend but it was hardly a double. The bed felt small and there was hardly enough room to move around it. The bathroom looked nice but the slipper bath (no shower) was too short for tall people and made hair washing rather difficult. We caught a glimpse of a suite with 4 poster next to us and it looked lovely. Our room was also painted in a sickly shade of pale green, which did nothing to enhance its appeal. It was clean enough but there was a cobweb on the light fitting, which was very obvious. Maybe we would stay again but book an upgraded room.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with shower rather than a slipper bath.

Set in an excellent location, about one and a half miles from the City Centre, this delightful hotel, that has been lovingly maintained in keeping with the era, was warm, friendly and oozed tradition. The staff were a very jolly bunch and the breakfast menu was delicious. I would highly recommend to any traveller, whether they be lone, coupled or in groups. Age restrictions need not apply either.

I don't normally write a review for overnight stays but I just had to for this place. Everything about it was lovely. The staff were very very friendly, the room had all the items you need. We just were not expecting such a lovely place with the price we paid. The breakfast was also fantastic! We have decided to return in January for the sales and do a little shop, so will look forward to having another enjoyable stay!

Room Tip: It takes about 25 minutes to walk into town and a taxi will cost about £6-8
