It was located conveniently right next to the Train station. Most of the attractions of Bath are within walking distance of the hotel and the City sightseeing bus stop is right outside the hotel as well, not to mention many shopping and eating options. The rooms are small but cosy and romantic. Breakfast was rather basic but good and service... More

We got to the hotel around 4pm and I was a bit dismayed to find it was next to the train station, but I now admit I was so pleasantly deceived. The interior is true to the hotels origins as a Victorian marvel but renewed to show the true splendor of it's origins. It was designed by the late, great,... More

Thank you for your review which I very much enjoyed reading especially as it captures what we try to achieve with the decor and design in both the hotel bedrooms, which we endeavour to decorate and furnish in a manner to retain the character of the building which dates back to 1846, and our restaurant, which has a Parisian brasserie...

Two night stay through Travelzoo. Excellent value for money. Hotel ideally situated for exploring Bath on foot. Pelican crossing away from the railway station. We cannot fault the staff. All of them were helpful and cheerful. We will return.
