Aquae Sulis Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 17, 2013

We stayed at Aquea Sulis in June for only the one night and our only regret is that we were unable to stay longer. Beautiful rooms and gardens, friendly staff and great location with a bus stop out the front! There are a flight (or two) of steps so just be organised so the larger bags can be left for safe keeping with reception. Hope to return one day!

Room Tip: higher floors will have steps

Our room was clean and comfortable. The bus stop is just outside to go to the centre of Bath and cost £4.20 for an adult return.
We felt that the b+b was impersonal. The breakfast tasted bland and the dated decor will not be to everyone's taste.
An adequate stay, but no more than this.

Thank you for valued feedback and we are pleased to see that we delivered on cleanliness and comfort. We flinch at the term 'dated' - the décor and fittings are chosen to reflect the period charm of the building and Bath . . . marble fireplaces, solid brass Deflt chandeliers, cornices, 11' ceilings etc. These buildings are not so much 'dated' as 'period'. We were personally disappointed in ourselves in coming across as 'impersonal'. Our professional 'raison d'etre' has always been not to be impersonal. We are a large guest house and as such we can offer personal privacy and quiet alongside a very personal service reflected by our high staffing level and our own 24 hour commitment.

Again, our professional 'raison d'etre' has always been not be 'adequate' or 'bland'. The breakfast choice and quality we offer is well documented on our website and was specifically praised recently in a Quality in Tourism inspection report. We do maybe try to rely on good quality 'honest' food and less on garnishes, seasonings etc.

But thank you again for a genuine and valued review.

Aquae Sulis was very clean and comfortable, well appointed and the staff were very pleasant and helpful. The breakfast was superb - loads of choice and delicious. Within easy walking distance of our family and the bus service was very frequent to the City Centre (the bus stop was just outside) as Bath is not a very car-friendly city. Good off road parking and ample parking on the road also.

We stayed for one night only whilst visiting Bath University. A lovely house with a great atmosphere. Our room was plenty big enough even with 3 beds in. A lovely bathroom too, very clean and new. The staff were very helpful. The breakfast was very good, the full English was very generous with extras like mushrooms and hash browns, and real sausages! Thank you for a comfortable enjoyable stay.
