I wasn't sure about this property when I booked it, as I had left it very late to book accommodation in Bath, and nearly everything else was full. I think the reason that it was still available was probably because it is out of town, rather than the city center.
It was the best thing that could have happened.
The Lodge and the Hotel are next to each other, but no longer owned by the same operators. Make sure you book the Lodge, as it is terrific.
The taxi fare from Bath Station was around 8.00 pounds, however once you get there, there is a direct bus route right outside that takes you into Bath, and runs on a regular timetable.
Our twin room, was small, but so charming and cosy that you overlooked it's size. The staff were super friendly, and were happy to accommodate us wherever they could. The room was very clean and had some little extra touches in with the usual tea/coffee items.
There was complimentary internet (which was a godsend), a lovely little guest lounge or sitting room and a nice breakfast room. The breakfast menu was more than enough, but be prepared for a bit of a wait. The times for breakfast are quite condensed so all the guests arrive at nearly the same time, which seems to cause some delays. Longer hours for breakfast would benefit, I believe.
My only bit of constructive feedback, was that they offered a small dine in menu, however when we made further enquiries, most of the dishes were not available, due to a change in management or policy. It would have been better not to have the menu on offer at all. The staff did recommend a superb restaurant that was within walking distance of the lodge. If I stayed here again, I would also eat at the same place.
We were delighted that we booked this property and would have no hesitation in recommending it to others.
