We went back to the Royal Hotel for the 4th or 5th time. As before the staff were friendly, helpful, polite and welcoming. We stayed in room 311 on the 3rd floor. The weather was hot and sticky, so it was good to find a big fan in our room.Which was very welcome for the hot nights,The room was fairly... More

I spent 2 nights at the Royal Hotel, it was opposite Bath Railway station which I thought might be a problem but I'm glad to say it wasn't. The staff were all very friendly and helpful, the room was clean and had plenty of coffee tea and water supplied, hairdryer, suit press,& fan. The breakfast was good with a nice... More

Stayed at this hotel in June on a 2 night leisure break. The hotel is ideally situated very close to all the main attractions Bath has to offer. The leisure break was at a very competitive rate and included breakfast and 3 course evening meal on both nights and the food was very good. The room was clean and comfortable... More

Right across from Bath Spa railway station, Royal Hotel provided a convenient and comfortable place to stay for a solo female's time to tour Bath. Helpful and pleasant staff. Very comfortable bed and clean facilities. Breakfast very satisfying. Dinner on Brasserie Brunel tasty and well presented. Made my stay most enjoyable.

We stayed at the Royal Hotel for a long weekend and really enjoyed it. The staff, both on reception and at breakfast, were more than helpful - and even held our bags for the afternoon after we had checked out. The location was great as well. Despite being across the road from Bath Spa Station, there was little noise and... More

Although I had been to Bath on several previous occasions I had never stayed at the Royal but I knew it was in a really good location to see the best bits of Bath so thought I would give it a go. We travelled by train and it's ideal to just walk across the road from the railway station. I... More

I have so many wonderful things to say about the Royal Hotel in Bath. I ordered a rail pass, which had to be delivered to a UK address, and with assistance from Ellie and Will at the reception desk they helped me arrange to have it delivered to the hotel prior to my arrival. When we did arrive, the receptionist... More

Location is right opposite the train station, we stayed in a four poster bedroom. Overlooking the main road and junction. Reception girl was friendly and helpful. Bare in mind if you don't book the parking with the hotel in advance you will have to use the public car park - only a few minutes walk, at £12.50 for 24 hours.... More
