Travelers' Choice
Built of golden Bath stone, The Ayrlington is a large and handsome English Heritage listed building set in a splendid walled oriental garden with exceptional views of the City and its medieval Abbey. Bath's magnificent historic sites, speciality shops and excellent restaurants are all just a five minutes level stroll away. all 19 bedrooms have an individual theme and are beautifully furnished, some with four poster beds. The emphasis is on creating an atmosphere of peace and tranquility in the centre of Bath's vibrant city centre. The Ayrlington has a licensed residents' bar, secure on-site private parking and is entirely non smoking. We cannot accept children under 5 years of age. The Ayrlington's ongoing commitment to quality has brought some well deserved and hard earned awards - five stars from Visit Britain, a listing in The Good Hotel Guide and multiple Bath in Bloom garden awards.

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 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.

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
