We stayed at the Dukes for 6 nights this month while my husband attended a conference. We had a gorgeous suite on the first floor, which was confirmed prior to our arrival (along with the disclosure that the hotel did not have a lift). Every staff member was absolutely lovely, and very helpful! The central location of the hotel enabled... More

My friend and I stayed at a Dukes for two nights. We had a room on the very top floor - we had been warned! It was indeed a long climb up, and perhaps if I'd truly appreciated steep nature of the six flights, I would have booked a different place to stay. That said, the room was pleasant and... More

First of all, I visited a few years back but didn’t file a report for some reason. This year I was supposed to visit in March but I was ill at very short notice beforehand The hotel was kind enough to an alternative date rather than just billing my credit-card for a “no show”. Dukes is probably more of a... More

This is a quality guest house in a stunning building that is a few minutes walk from the city centre. They provide an on street parking permit and we found a space just a few yards from the entrance (n.b. we arrived on a Thursday at approximately 2.30). Luxury double room (small suite really) was spacious and clean. The shower... More

Dukes was absolutely wonderful. The location is perfect for exloring Bath on foot. The staff was extremely helpful and professional. Our room was upgraded upon checking in which was a nice surprise. The room was magnificent. And breakfast was excellent. Parking can be a bit of a challenge. Overall it was a great experience. Highly recommend Dukes if you are... More

We have just spent 3 glorious days celebrating the 5th annual reunion with our old school friends from Hong Kong and have been utterly spoilt by all the charming, friendly and dedicated staff at Dukes, who put themselves out to make us feel welcome and cared for; . Nothing is too much trouble, proved by the "doggy bag" thoughtfully provided... More

Dukes has stood on Great Pulteney Street for over 220 years and no doubt witnessed countless romances, weddings and happy meetings. Your re-union must surely stand as one of the most warm, happy and humorous celebrations in her long and profound memory. On behalf of our entire team may we in turn thank you for choosing to stay with us... More

Second time we have stayed here: comfortable and well appointed, and very close to the centre of Bath, on the elegant Great Pulteney Street. Helpful and accommodating staff, freshly cooked breakfast, on street parking - if you can find any. Nothing to fault, and I am sure we will be back.

As you note we offer guests complimentary on street parking – with access to over 625 parking bays our guests are normally parked up with ease – however I note that your visit coincided with graduation from Bath University and so all parking would have been at an absolute premium. I am sorry for this initial frustration and trust that... More

Our complimentary on street parking permits offers access to over 625 kerb side parking bays and a potential saving of some £15-£25 on daily parking charges. As you note we stand within two Grade 1 listed Georgian townhouses and so are precluded from introducing a lift. We offer 17 unique rooms across all floors and so for those seeking easy... More

Everything about this hotel is perfect - close enough to the centre to pop back to drop off your shopping, far enough from the centre for a quiet night's sleep. Very warm welcome on arrival, parking permit ready. The rooms were very gracious and immaculate. All the staff we met could not have been friendlier. We were given some good... More

Delighted that you thoroughly enjoyed your break in Bath. As the only World Heritage City in the UK, Bath offers up a wonderful palette of crescents, streets and memorable views; not to mention an array of independent retailers and restaurants. We simply seek to ensure our guests thoroughly enjoy the occasion in a wholehearted manner. Many thanks. More
