Reviewed November 3, 2012

Me and my partner Christopher visited The Bath Priory for his birthday. From the moment we arrived we were taken care of. Nothing was too much hassle. The service we received from all members of staff was just incredible. They arranged and suggested The Circus as a birthday dinner and it was AMAZING!!! We found that it was worth every penny and they made Christopher's birthday a very special one. The main person that made this such an outstanding visit would be the Host Manager Vicky Tann, she went beyond and above to make it a very special stay and one to remember as the best we have ever encountered!! Because it was a birthday visit the extra special personal touches were made such as a card and gift, things like this really make all the difference from other hotels we have stayed in. Forget the comments about tea and coffee facilities' all you have to do is ask and it's there within seconds with fresh milk or cream!! We have already decided we are going to book again and take family and friends the next time we visit. ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!

We stayed at the Bath Priory for two nights and ended up having dinner there both nights as well.

The visit was a highlight of our two weeks in the UK.

The hotel was impeccable. Great location, great service, great ambience.

Both dinners were outstanding accompanied by good advice on pairing wines with the food.

A quality experience and highly, highly recommended.

Our family stayed at the Priory at the end of a 3 week Europe adventure. We chose the Priory after reviewing TripAdvisor and once again the reviews were spot on. This place is magical. We stayed with our 3 children aged 12, 13 and 15 and they loved exploring the gardens, playing croquet and enjoying scones and tea in the drawing room. The children had beautifully prepared room service whilst we experienced a wonderful degustation dinner downstairs with perfectly matched wines. the service was first class, down to chasing us down the driveway to clarify the directions to a recommended sushi restaurant in Bath. The staff sincerely made us feel welcome and did everything to ensure our stay was perfect.

We stayed for two nights and were very happy with the excellent customer service offered by all the staff we met. The staff went out of their way to ensure we enjoyed our stay. The bedroom and the lounges were extremely comfortable and despite our room being roadside the external noise was not intrusive at all.
Our one gripe is similar to a previous comment in that we think that a room costing over £200 per night should have a tea making facility in the room.

We stayed for one night at the Bath Priory to celebrate a friend's birthday, which was a very special time. The hotel was like an old country house with high ceilings, lots of pictures, antiques and plenty of big comfortable chairs and settees. The service of the staff was outstanding and as others have said, the attention to detail was first class. Our room was huge with a gigantic bed which was turned down in the evening with a tray with slippers etc placed on top. Would have been good to have had tea making facilities, but would probably be out of place here. Food was excellent. Spent an hour in the pool which was fabulous. Short 15 min walk to the centre of Bath. If you want that special "upper class" hotel with the "silver service" and to feel like lord and lady of the manor, then this is the place!

We stayed for 2 nights in October and were given a beautiful room in the main house ( Lavender )!!!!!!!! My word that bathroom .... Pure luxury and the most comfy bed.

There were no faults at all everything was just perfect from Mags on Reception a true gem to the room service staff who brought breakfast to our room on both mornings Thank you so much we were spoilt.

Afternoon tea was lovely, the grounds beautiful and the spa was wonderful. We went to spend some time alone and get away to chill out a bit and all was perfect.

The walk to bath through the park is lovely it takes about 20 mins to get into Bath so park your car up and leave it. We ate at Jamie's on the second night as per Bath Priory staff recommendation and a true delight Thank you.

We didn't eat in the restaurant as the price was a little to high but I'm sure it would have been lovely.

If you want to get away from everything, chill out and relax then this is the place to be nothing was any trouble to the fantastic and professional staff a real treat. Thank you to you all !!!!!!

My friend and I spent two spa days at the Bath Priory.
The hotel is has a lovely old feel to it and the gardens are wonderful.
Our treatments were very good and worth the money. The purpose built treatment rooms certainly added to the professionalism of the place.
Only one tiny niggle...there are no tea making facilities in the room. We did ring and get a tray of tea one morning but were unsure if we had been charged for it or not, so didn't repeat our request.
The staff are very tentative and genuine in their wish to make our stay a good one.

Room Tip: Ask for a room over looking the garden, as the adjacent road is busy in the mornings.
