“An OK Hotel but somewhat overpriced”
Reviewed September 2, 2006

Bath. The County Hotel. An OK Hotel but overpriced.
Date 1st and 2nd September 2006
Reviewer. David & Barbara Melling. Wirral UK.

We have just arrived home after a weekend in Bath staying at the County Hotel. We chose this Hotel because of its rave reviews on the Hotels website. On arrival we found the Hotel to be in an ideal situation, yes it was a 10minute walk from the city centre and the veiws from the Hotel are superb. However the rave reveiws do not compare with the reality.

We had booked a £180 per night 4 poster room. The room was clean and it did have a spa bath. However the room was very small and lacking in character. The bathroom was very basically fitted out , you expect more for £180 per night. The Hotel does not offer a dining facility and the bar would appear to serve as the local pub and is in need of some TLC. The Hotel does offer a breakfast service and again we found it to be very dissapointing, cold cooked food and a poor continental breakfast buffet. Again you would expect more.

In summary this is an OK Hotel but somewhat overpriced. You do expect far more from a Hotel at £180 per night. The web site does not build a true picture of this hoel.

  • Liked — close to city

The first impressions are great, the staff are really helpful and actually enjoy what they do. The ambience of the hotel is excellent and even the small double room was perfectly presented and more than enough space for two. Within walking distance of Bath centre. Great breakfast with the sash windows open the Sunday morning summer breeze was perfect overlooking the church spires and recreational ground,beautiful.

  • Liked — cleanliness/staff/general quality is first rate/definately 5*
  • Disliked — steps upstairs
  • Tips/Secrets — if sunny have breakfast outside

Stayed at this hotel for two nights in a small double overlooking the abbey. Could not fault anything about the staff, the room or the food. It smelt so clean and it was. The breakfasts were outstanding and the lemon drizzle cake for breakfast was lush!! The staff were friendly, nothing was too much trouble. It is an easy walk into Bath.

Spent three weeks in New Zealand earlier in the year, my two days in Bath will hold much happier memories. Would definately recommend.

Thank you
