“Weekend Break”
Reviewed February 26, 2014

I stayed at the Royal Bath Hotel for a short break and found the experience one of the best I have had in some time, their customer service and food were excellent food and good value for money.

Recommend to anyone.

My husband and I stayed here on one of their 2 night special deals and found it wonderful value. We were happy from the time we booked in at reception until the moment we left, spotlessly clean room, great staff and good food. The very smart housekeeper even discovered it was a special wedding anniversary for us and left a 30 made of chocolates on the bed - a very nice touch. The restaurant had a very nice atmosphere and good menu choices-remember to order vegetables, and we both enjoyed Eggs Benedict on the second morning-delicious! Would certainly recommend the Royal and intend to visit again

Room Tip: I think ours was a basic price room and we could not see out of the window but for 2 nights that was...

Stayed for 2 nights in a family room with 2 friends.

The station is directly opposite the hotel so we were worried about possible noise. Our room, on the 2nd floor, faced the station and even with the window open all day and night we didn't hear a thing!

The hotel is literally around the corner from the main shopping area, restaurants and attractions, but again, you don't hear any of the noise.

Breakfast was lovely and plentiful. The rooms are starting to look a little dated but everything was clean and comfortable. The staff are friendly and helpful.

We will definitely be staying here again.

Room Tip: They have limited car parking, which you have to pay for, so be sure to book one when booking your r...

We stayed two nights in this hotel and I was extremely pleased. From the moment that we arrived I felt welcomed and at home. We arrived early however were allowed to check in. Put out bags into our room and headed straight out into the centre of Bath only a couple of minutes walk away. We had dinner in the evening and was very pleasantly surprised. The bed was amazingly comfortable and the bathroom clean with a decent shower. Plenty of choice at breakfast and wine left in our bedroom. Staff were always cheery and helpful. Would definitely stay again.

Thank you for your kind review.

I am pleased that your dinner was a “pleasant surprise” as we work very hard to ensure that the quality of our food is of a high order not least because we appreciate that hotel guests very often choose to eat out in other restaurants because they have little confidence in the food being provided by hotels. In our case food is very much an important part of our business and it gives enormous pleasure when guests, such as your good self, appreciate this.

We look forward to welcoming you again soon.

My husband and I stayed at The Royal Hotel for our honeymoon this weekend and it was a wonderful and welcoming experience - from the best wishes we recieved before we even arrived (via Twitter) to the greeting we got when we drove down from Brighton and were a little frazzled after the long trip! Also, when we found that the kettle in our room was not working early one morning we rang down to reception and got a replacement within 5 minutes, which was excellent!

We had a superior bedroom which was decorated in a wonderful - and very blue - style. Very clean, great sized (very comfortable) bed with a canopy, good tea & coffee making facilities and a fantastic large en-suite bathroom complete with complementary toiletries and a decent sized bath. As we had a superior room we also got big, fluffy robes and slippers so that we could relax in comfort in the room. Our TV was new and had the usual freeview channels as well as a selection of new DVDs to borrow from reception if we so fancied.

The room was great value and the price included breakfast, which was also a fantastic affair. Cooked, continetal or a mix of both, the food was delicious and the staff were attentive and friendly without being too in your face about things. Toast and tea and a wonderful cooked breakfast was a perfect start to married life for me, while my husband had porridge followed by eggs on toast, which he proclaimed delicious. There is also a well stocked bar (including local ales as well as the usual bar drinks) with friendly staff and a restuarant on site which is supposed to be very good (we didn't have time to try it unfortunately1)

The hotel is situated centrally, right by Bath Spa train station, and as such everything you could want to see or do is just a short walk away. There are some (limited) paid parking spaces in the hotel (which you need to reserve in advance) but the hotel is also a 2 minute walk away from the Southgate shopping centre where you can also park safely for a reasonable price (we were there from Thursday-Saturday and it cost us £16).

I would highly recommend this hotel to everyone and anyone and would like to thank them again for making our first few nights as a married couple very enjoyable ones. We will definitely return when we come back to Bath!

Room Tip: The blue superior room is on the first floor and is a little out of the way of the other room, so ve...

I'd read the reviews before I came and they all said the staff were wonderful...but THEY REALLY ARE !! All of them , from housekeeping and waiting staff through to the reception, all really lovely.If I could score them 20/10 I would !!
Helpful way above and beyond what you'd hope for, really really accommodating and friendly.
The breakfast was PERFECT ( I had the smoked haddock with poached eggs, fresh orange, toast, marmalade and loads of fresh coffee ) Pleasantly full and ready to start my day now :-)
Ooooohh, and the bed was extra comfortable, better than mine at home.

We have just enjoyed two nights at this hotel. Everything was perfect. The room (standard double) was a decent size and the bed comfortable. Room was cleaned to a high standard each day. The breakfast was the best we have experienced in a hotel - wide choice and prompt service. Dinner was delicious with lots of choice and friendly service. Highly recommend.
