The Bath Spa Hotel retains the elegance associated with Bath.
We have visited for several years and have always found the staff pleasant and helpful ,without being intrusive. The bedrooms are clean and comfortable, even if now somewhat dated. The beds are large and comfortable. The Imperial suites are ideal for celebrating a special occasion, with a separate sitting room with fire being particularly nice for a winter booking.
The breakfast service had failed for a little time, but now is again up to scratch and the breakfast choices are varied and plentiful. The portion sizes at dinner were just right, however, although the choices are suitable for most requirements and the quality of the ingredients are generally good, a couple of daily imaginative 'specials' would make the choice less mundane, especially for those staying for more than one night. The service from the head waiter was very good, however, there was a delay in delivering wine to the table and a portion of bread from the trolley was offered only once.
During our stay there was a hotel wide loss of all BBC channels which had not been rectified by the time we had left. From a marketing point of view,there is an extra £5 car park charge, which I think should just be included in the bill rather than making it a separate item, which, considering the grade of hotel, appears rather mean. If someone arrives without a car, when they are asked if they have brought a car, a nice touch would then be to deduct it from the bill.
The hotel has a nice spa with a heated outdoor pool (for adults).
There is an art gallery within easy walking distance of the hotel, but it is quite a walk into the centre of town for the rest of the attractions and a taxi may be required.
This continues to be one of our favourite hotels and I hope that we shall continue to return there for many years.
