“Excellent would recommend”
Reviewed July 16, 2012

We held our small wedding reception here. The staff, the hotel and the food were all fantastic. We stayed overnight in the Atholl room and breakfast was all lovely. Would definitely recommend. Excellent situation for the town, train and bus station.

Room Tip: Atholl room overlooks Great Pultney Street, lovely.

I have to agree with many other comments that the hotel is well-located and staff very friendly. We were pleased with the rooms, which were spacious, clean and tastefully decorated. We had a view over Bath Rec, which pleased my son (a rugby fan). There is no lift - but this is pointed out on booking - and I have no doubt that the staff would accommodate a lower room if requested/available. The reservations staff made contact with me directly after my booking on booking.com, which I liked as a more personal touch. The hotel is close to the main attractions, but the road it is on is just off the main tourist route - so you can enjoy the Georgian splendour without the hoardes of tourists, plus the nearby park/Art Gallery are really appealing. The bed was incredibly comfortable and high quality of cotton sheets.

I have visited the delightful Dukes hotel in Bath several times. The hotel itself, the staff and the food are all excellent. The rooms are very comfortable and the hotel brilliantly situated for the attractions and shopping. Book Dukes and I am sure you won't be dissapointed. Looking forward to my next visit.

Room Tip: There are alot of stairs and no lifts so ask for a room on a lower level if you find stairs a proble...

This was my second stay at Dukes. Wonderful location (close to the Roman Baths and Bath Abbey) and a very friendly and most helpful staff. It's become my home away from home when I'm in Bath. Simply terrific!!

I dropped into the Dukes hotel very unexpectedly primarily to shelter from one of the summers torrential downpours. Looking out for a place to meet a business colleague I was shown to a comfortable bar and lounge downstairs by a very polite and welcoming porter. After a couple of hours of business, my colleague and I opted to stay for lunch. This is where the Dukes Hotel really excels. We both enjoyed an excellent three course lunch.
Excellent value, discerning menu, first class service - well worth a visit.

Stayed for one night when another hotel had mixed up my booking. What a pleasant surprise I had. From the moment I walked in the staff were excellent. I stayed in the Abercorn room on the ground floor which was clean and very comfortable. 10 minute walk to the town centre and it's variety of restaurants and bars.
Breakfast was a delight, again made better by the staff.
Will definitely stay here again in the future.

My partner and I stayed two nights. The hotel is housed in a beautiful Georgian Building. The rooms are decorated elegantly in the style of the period - great high ceilings. It was very clean and comfortable. We thought it was a great experience for the price and location.
