Very good location close to Roman Baths, Abbey and all major attractions. However, the price for central location is increased noise, the coach tours all seem to pick up and drop off directly outside the Hotel and refuge collection seems to take place numerous times from early morning. Obviously this is not the fault of the Hotel but something to be aware of.
Hotel is very clean and some refurbishments have obviously taken place, new carpets in the bedrooms and throughout the corridors. Bar area is very nicely decorated and is suitable for a quiet drink before going out. The bedrooms are quite small and no air con, so very warm when we stayed. We were given room 116 originally but this could only be described as a single room. Yes a double bed was in there but pushed up against the wall, so you could only get in and out at one side of the bed. In my opinion a double bed doesn't make a double room. Hotel management need to stop using the room as a double. Staff were great and they did give us another room with no argument, but don't no what the situation would have been if no other room was available.
One further warning be careful when using the lift, looks rather old and very small. It failed on us for perhaps only a minute or two (seemed longer though) we did have to ring the alarm (which does work). It started and we got out next floor and walked down. Went to report it to reception and girl was already on phone to maintenance, so staff were great.
Cooked breakfast was excellent and very nicely present, but the choice of the non cooked buffet was quite small. Once again staff in bar and restaurant were great, no problems.
Good selection of restaurants are available within a couple of minutes walk. Try Yak Yeti Yak (Nepalese) and Tilleys Bistro.
