We have now stayed at the Ayrlington 5 times over the past 6 or 7 years and we find it the perfect base from which to explore the beautiful city of Bath. The rooms do vary in size and style, but generally there is something for everyone. The welcome is very good and the rooms always clean and tidy. We usually try to book the Abbey room as it looks out over the Recreation ground (one of our reasons to visit Bath is to watch the rugby) and over to Bath Abbey and the Old Empire Hotel buidling. The lounge with a small bar is a nice place to relax either after a long days walking round the city or for an early evening aperitif before going out to the restaurant of your choice (they give you a list/map of recommended restaurants to visit). The rooms we have stayed are all comfortable, although the decoration could do with a bit of touching up in places. The shower screen in our room needed a new seal along the bottom to stop the water going on to the floor and the bath could do with replacing as the jacuzzi no longers works (but the jacuzzi was not necessary really).
The nice touches are the tea/coffee/chocolate along with the biscuits. The CD/Ipod dock/DAB radio was nice but I couldn't get the radio off Radio 3 (not everyones choice..). Breakfasts were very nice with a good variety.
There is parking available but this time we let the train take the strain and the hotel is only a 10-15 minute walk from the station (Taxis are available).
All in all a great place to stay and we will definitely be back again soon.
