Stayed for one night last week, the hotel justifies it's number 1 status. So calm, relaxing and spotless. Great location in a quiet spot a few minutes flat walk to the town centre. We were upgraded to a superior room which was great on the 3rd floor although having run a marathon the day before it tested the legs a...

Stayed at this hotel for a couple of nights and have to say that all of the reviews that have made this hotel the highest rated hotel in Bath on Trip Advisor are spot on. The room was spacious with all the amenities needed; hairdryer, good quality towels and robes, toiletries and T.V. with FreeView channels. Whilst the bed/pillows meant...

My best friend and I came away for a "girly weekend" in Bath and stayed at the Dukes hotel after reading good reviews on Trip Advisor. It did not disappoint- what a truly fantastic hotel. The staff were wonderful, extremely friendly and helpful (we even had our bags carried up to our room on the top floor!) A parking permit...

We booked this GH as it was rated No 1 in Bath. Give its dues it was very good, but there must be some bad GH's if this was the best. It was not the cheapest of places to stay, expensive on reflection. Great position for access into the town. Parking can be a pain if you are wanting to...

Many thanks for taking the time to write a review. I note that you visited Bath at the end of the ‘Easter holidays’ on a busy Thursday, Friday and Saturday – our complimentary parking permit saved you approximately £75 in municipal parking fees. However, I am sorry that you experienced some frustration in parking in one of the 625 parking...

I stayed here just for one night with my son. The hotel itself is perfectly located, just a short five minute walk from the city centre on a quiet street.
