My wife and I have just spent a weekend break in Bath, staying at the Redcar Hotel. Having read trip advisor we were somewhat concerned but decided to proceed, primarily as there seemed to be a shortage of accommodation at a realistic price. I am glad we did. It's true to say that the hotel is in need of some TLC as it is looking tired and worn. However, this is soon overtaken by the friendliness and politeness of the staff. The public areas are comfortable although the mismatched furniture would be better if it was all period. The breakfast was a surprise as I understood it to be Continental only when in reality there was also full English.
The position of being only 2 minutes from Pultney Bridge and a further 5 minutes from the Abbey is superb - a real selling point. And, although being in the centre of a city, it was very quiet throughout the night even though our room was at the front of the hotel on the ground floor.
At a cost of £72.00 per night B&B, I have no complaints. If the hotel was given a complete overhaul, I suggest the price would double!
I recommend you give the Redcar Hotel a try because it has received some mixed/bad reviews, which from my experience is unfair.
Finally, if you do go be sure not to miss the Walking Tour of Bath by the Mayor's Corps of Honorary Guides - a real treat.
