Excellent location in centre of town, everything is basically on your doorstep. We booked a small double which was quite small but good value for the price. The staff were friendly and very helpful. Would definitely stay here again. You

Its location is superb. It's steps away from attractions, like Roman bath & very near to the train station. The reception & staff were polite & welcoming. The room is clean room, towel clean, comfortable bed with air-conditioning. Room looked new & recently renovated. BUT there is no door to the WC & the bed is a super single, rather...

Nice hotel but in need of updating. Excellent location. Clean, and nice toiletries and refreshments in the room. No air conditioning and I can imagine that the room might be unbearably hot in the summer. We stayed in a Double Superior room(215) but no real justification for room being given this status as quite a small room and no wardrobe...

I stayed overnight at this really interesting boutique hotel, which has been modernised inside. The room was comfortable, our boardroom style business dinner was quietly and efficiently served, without the staff being obvious and which allowed us to continue our business dinner without distraction. The food was also excellent. A full English breakfast the next morning was also a good...

The location of this hotel is really convenient and isn't far from all the attractions, 5 minute walk max to the Roman Baths and 10 minutes to the Circus Crescent. I'd say it's a 10 minute slow walk from the train station so with bags, really easy to get to. The room was small but for one night, really good...

This is a really tremendous hotel. All of the basics are right - it's attractive and comfortable, the staff are friendly and helpful, the location is as central as you get, and the restaurant is blow-your-socks-off good. But the USP is the art on the walls, which is tremendous - contemporary and really engaging. We loved it. And the cocktail...

Stayed for just one night for the hen night of my soon to be daughter in law. Beautiful hotel, great location, helpful staff, fabulous decor, good breakfast and coffee, BUT although we had a very comfortable bed, in what was a very small room we hardly slept due to the temperature of the room.

Great location, lovely interior, fantastic breakfasts and cocktails in the bar in the evenings. The staff was hospitable, friendly and warm. We brought our golden retriever dog and she was allowed everywhere except the breakfast room (they served us breakfast with her in the bar). I would come again.

As we were early for check-in, they held onto our bags so that we could go and explore for a couple of hours...making the most of our stay in Bath.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Abbey Hotel is a privately-owned hotel in one of the best locations in Bath. Situated in North Parade, close to Bath Abbey, Pulteney Bridge, The Pump Rooms and the main shopping centre, it's the perfect base for exploring this glorious city, recognised as a World Heritage Site. The Abbey Hotel is also the ideal place to stay for rugby at Bath, and we are only minutes away from Bath Cricket Club and the Thermae Spa. Guided tour buses exploring the rest of Bath, including the Royal Crescent, Circus and Assembly Rooms, leave from outside the Hotel every 10 minutes. With 60 comfortable rooms, a lounge where you can enjoy coffee and drinks, and The Allium Brasserie selling drinks and meals throughout the day, the Hotel is a great place to unwind, whether you're here for business or pleasure. Watch the world go by from our pavement terrace over a cappuccino, light lunch or an early evening drink.Just opened: our brand new restaurant, The Allium Brasserie, created by our new former Michelin-starred Executive Head Chef, Chris Staines. It's set to become the most popular place to eat in the city. ... more   less
