Whilst I agree with other reviewers that this hotel has friendly staff a good breakfast on offer and clean rooms, I would have also have to add my personal disappointment with the tiredness of the hotel in general. The hotel is an old building which could have added to its quirkiness, but I am afraid that the level of traffic... More

We travelled to bath by train and booked this hotel which is literally opposite the train station. Great location for exploring bath. The staff were very warm and helpful. The double room was cosy and cooked breakfast included which had good options and was tasty. I would stay here again if visiting bath.

We had an overnight stay and found the family room on the top floor comfortable to sleep 3 of us. The breakfast was very good and cooked to order which made it fresher than a buffet breakfast. The staff were friendly and provided storage facilities for our luggage so we could explore Bath and leave late afternoon. It can get... More

Great location, friendly professional staff and beautiful rooms. The rooms were decorated in a Victorian style and were lovely. The attached restaurant was not up to the standard of the hotel. Waitstaff was great, food was not. Breakfast was included in room rate and was convenient but was no better than fair, (prepackaged hash browns were served).

Nice and central and it's got parking for 6 cars. Rooms clean, staff good. The place is a little kreeky so get a room on the 3rd (top) floor. Breakfasts are cooked to order and the full English is fine. Again staff very good. And we would stop there again.

Room was a little tight but OK - good en-suite bathroom. Excellent breakfast - cooked fresh. Nice not to arrive to a buffet of fried eggs in the morning. The staff... More
