Can safely say that the breakfast was excellent everything you would want including a freshly cooked full English breakfast and lots of coffee with great service. Enjoyed a couple... More

Food excellent. Reception staff was very friendly. Restaurant service very slow at breakfast although this may have been due to several large groups.. Rooms clean but very warm on the third floor. No A/C.Fan ran day and night.

Thanks for your review following your stay with us I am delighted that you found our food to be excellent and staff friendly. We rarely have a group booking in our hotel as we only have 35 rooms and a group would not affect the speed of serve which is determined by the times which guests appear for breakfast as... More

Friends travelling in separate rooms, this was the perfect small hotel to accommodate us. Tiny but very comfortable rooms at a reasonable price. We walked around most of the time we were in bath but this was a nice place to just sleep. Clean and friendly staff at the desk and in the bar made for a great stay.

My short stay at the Royal Hotel was, in a word, fantastic. Being in Bath just for one night, the Royal Hotel's central location was ideal. It allowed me to easily visit the towns historic local attractions and excellent shops, which are all just a short walk away. During my stay I had breakfast, lunch and dinner in the hotel's... More

Warm welcome at the Royal on the day of our 11th wedding anniversary. Our superior room was relatively small but well appointed. Although the website refers to all the rooms having been refurbished, there did not seem to be much evidence of that in the room we occupied (110). The room faces onto the main road and it can be...

Thank you for your review following your stay with us on the occasion of your wedding anniversary. I regret that you felt your room was relatively small but as you are aware The Royal is a Grade II listed building, constructed in 1846 and, therefore, the size of rooms vary considerably and we are unable to carry out any structural...

We visited for a late lunch. The food was good but the staff were amazing. They were helpful and attentive, despite being really busy. The restaurant is quite formal, so if this isn't your thing you can eat in the bar area!
