From the friendly way that we were greeted to the time we left, there is almost nothing that my wife and I can think of that we would change. We had room 1 at the back of the hotel (away from the road), which has a very comfortable double bed, a large balcony overlooking the garden with chairs and table, and a walk in shower and separate bath.
Breakfast is very tasty and fills you up for the day and the dinners are superb. We had only intended to eat at the Northey on the first night but it was so good that we ate there the other night too... Don't miss the tiger prawn starter, and the shepard's pie was lovely. My wife and I are extremely annoyed that we were unable to try the deserts in the restaurant. This was due to the fact that the starter and main courses are so large and ludicrously tasty that we didn't have room for anything else. When we were asked if we would like to see the desert menu, we laughed and I think they probably get that reaction a lot.
We stayed on Tuesday and Wednesday nights and the restaurant was very busy all evening. Apparently, it is busier at the weekend, so it's probably best to book in advance.
If you want a really relaxing stay only a few miles from Bath but much cheaper than in Bath itself, stay here! We will be back.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The former Box Station Hotel owes its architecture to Brunel. Head Chef Chris Alderson has created a classic menu using seasonal produce. Fresh fish is delivered to from Cornwall, along with locally sourced beef. Those staying the night will be royally spoilt as slick bedrooms sport pieces of one-off furniture and sculpture - and beds super comfortable with dazzling white linen and thick mattresses. One room has a decked balcony, all have coffee-machines, and slate stone bathrooms ... more less
