We travelled to Bath for a wedding and booked 5 rooms were booked for us at the Redcar Hotel, unfortunately the person who booked them didn't check the reviews and relied upon the hotels own description. We arrived at 13:15 to be told our rooms wouldn't be ready till 14:00, when I enquired if even one of rooms was available to put our cases in I was told no as they only had one housekeeper on duty and she still needed to clean the rooms! Returning at 14:00 all five rooms were ready - amazing! The hotel exterior looked a little faded but it is part of a beautiful Georgian Terrace. The hotel lobby was small, dark and dingy with a smell of body odour courtesy of the receptionist. There is no lift so we walked to the second and third floors up some very uneven stairs. The floors on each landing were all uneven and squeaked - charming you may think - no dangerous, as the carpets were ill fitting and loose. The rooms were small but for £70 I expected that what I didn't expect was the dark purple paintwork in every room - very oppressive. The shower in our room was adequate, but the one in my daughters room didn't work at all and my sons was a pitiful trickle. The bathroom floors were tiled - the tiles were grubby and in three of the rooms they were cracked. The bedding was clean but all the paintwork was dirty - lots of finger marks. The TV's in the rooms were small but this was ok - the picture wasn't clear. Our room was on the back overlooking the carpark, the rooms on the front do have a nice outlook. The carpark is tiny and it is impossible to get out without help from the staff. Our daughters room was above the bar and the noise made it impossible for her to sleep untill the early hours. My father had a single room which was tiny no room between the bed and the wardrobe - you couldn't have swung a flea let alone a cat. We didn't have breakfast - we couldn't have eaten with the smell - this time a different receptionist but the same personal hygiene issue!. The one good thing about the hotel is the location - very central, but personally if the Redcar Hotel was the only one available - I'd stay at home!
