Nice position in Bath. Arrived without a booking on Saturday night and was told we were lucky. This was the last room! The price given was £210 with breakfast included, but no choice about the latter. The nice desk receptionist gave us a discount to £190 for the night. (The official visitor's guide we received at the Tourist Information office gives the price at £110 for a double!) I think this is a steep price for a small room on the first floor (rm 109) without aircon (it was stuffy) and old noisy plumbing. Not to mention the noise from Saturday night frivolities outside our window. The oldish shower had a complicated system of temp regulation and had low pressure. The toilet flush took forever to refill and was noisy. The bed was fine and the breakfast filling - though the full English breakfast could be presented with a little more flair without detracting from tradition! We were happy to find a place, but disappointed by the quality price rapport. Not up to good 3 star standards yet that we are used to in our EU travels.
