In a nutshell: Great location, you can go anywhere on foot from the hotel. From the outside, the building looks rather ugly, from the inside we liked it a lot. We had a nice de luxe room towards the river, beautiful view. The breakfast room is beautiful, too, views towards the river there as well, nice furniture, dark wood, somehow it gives you the feeling of being somewhere else.
The downsides: breakfast is rather poor, very limited choice, especially for a Hilton. Staff in general is friendly and tries to help, but not very efficient. I suspect they rely too much on trainees. Somehow, everything seems to be rather disorganised, no real communication between staff members. On two days, out of three nights, we had to call reception late afternoon to have our room made - and got excuses why it hadn't been done earlier - like we had had the 'Don't disturb' sign on the door, which was definitely not true.
The gym looked quite complete, but I did not have time to try it out. Wifi is only free of charge in the lobby area - if you are not a Golden or Diamond member - so everybody is hanging around there to check things on the internet.
Inspite of all of that, we liked the hotel and would probably go back if we return to Bath - and if it were a less expensive hotel, I would definitely give it a higher mark - but given the rates this hotel charges I think they could and should do better.
