My girlfriend and I have just returned from a couple of days at Villa Magdala – we’re running the Bath Half in March so wanted to check out the route and do some Christmas shopping. I’ve stayed before but not since it’s been renovated. When I came to post this review, I saw the recent review of the same room we stayed in and just couldn’t believe it was the same room.
Room 2 is lovely – beautifully decorated with a super comfy king-size bed, very light and airy. Yes, it’s near Reception but it is one of the lowest priced rooms and really good value for central Bath! And the rate includes free parking – two and half days in our case so that was great. The bathroom is newly fitted out with a big walk in shower – piping hot water all the time even in the middle of the afternoon when I wanted a shower after a run. And cosy too with a thermostatically controlled bathroom heater – when we checked in it was explained to us how to switch this off if we didn’t want it to run in the night – very useful. And reminded that we needed to switch it back on in the morning – even more useful!
A little noise at around 8.15 when we could hear other guests coming down to breakfast but certainly not intrusive – and what busy city centre hotel is perfectly silent?
We loved it and will be back – we may book one of their Best rooms if it is a special occasion as they do look lovely but if it’s good value for money you’re after, Room 2 is just fine. Thanks too to all the lovely staff who made us feel so welcome.
