Bath. The County Hotel. An OK Hotel but overpriced.

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.
