This hotel’s location is great – the Holburne Museum is just up the road and it’s a 10 minute walk into the centre of Bath. The outlook over the gardens up to Bath Abbey is splendid and the breakfast choice is excellent. That said, the Ayrlington is certainly not worthy of 5 star status as it is really quite shabby. I had the Iris room which, because it looked over the gardens, was at least quiet though very hot despite neither of the two radiators being on. Only one of the two sash windows would open, however. I was extremely glad I was staying on my own and only for one night as the wardrobe was effectively a broom cupboard with just four of those non-removable hangars positioned one behind the other, which is just about the most inconvenient configuration you can give a guest. Absolutely not sufficient for a couple staying a few nights. My room felt somewhat uncared for – there were only 3 bulbs working out of the 6 bulbs in the overhead light and there was rotten woodwork in the bathroom, doubtless due to water flooding from the shower. I know that Bath prices are high, but I feel that the £120 double room price (with no concession for single occupancy) was really over the top. I wouldn’t feel able to recommend the Ayrlington to a friend. …
We stayed in Victoria room very spacious although it was facing the main road/car park it was a minimal noise.room well presented 5 star feeling,(Jonny)reception very helpful, breakfast well prepared high standard only downside was found room side table had a milk drop dried up and window in the bathroom some water marks kind of splash of shampoo as well but overall location is very close to the main attractions.
We got moved to the Ayrlington after our original hotel was closed. Lovely hotel with very clean rooms. Hand sanitizer available at the entrance and good signage up about wearing face masks. The room was a good size with a large bathroom. Good views out over the garden and park. Breakfast was served at intervals throughout the morning. Good options available and served by friendly staff. All staff wearing masks and gloves. Only a short walk into town centre. Would definitely stay there again.
What a brilliant few days away, Bath is a wonderful city and made all the better by The Ayrlington . The staff are all faultless and especially Johnny made you more than welcome in the bar , couldn’t wait to get back for a nightcap after an evening in Bath . Perfect location ,perfect Hotel , perfect break
we had a lovely stay at The Ayrlington. the hotel is as you would expect for a Victorian ear building, and cozy, warm, and clean. The difference with Ayrlington is the staff - very friendly and attentive - we wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel
