We have just had an enjoyable stay at the Aquae Sulis. We arrived by train and took advantage of the courtesy pick up and drop off service that is provided, very useful as it is situated about 10 minutes outside of Bath. The place is extremely clean and well looked after. Our room was very spacious and comfortable will all the facilities you could ask for or expect. Rounding off our stay was a tasty breakfast which was cooked to order from a varied menu.

Thank you very much for taking the time to write your review of Aquae Sulis. We very much value your feedback. We are glad that you had a comfortable stay and we were able to provide you with a good standard of service. We are located in Bath, but as you say, out of the city centre. We do, however, have a doorstep bus service which runs every 12 min and they provide a very useful all day pass for just £4.20. Thank you again and hope to see you one day on a return trip.

It's easy to walk into Bath along the riverside or road - about half an hour and all flat. Better than catching the bus and there are some nice pubs along the way. Buses are frequent, though. Aquae Sulis is spotless, with comfy beds, large rooms and excellent Molton Brown toiletries if you forget yours. An added bonus is the small bar and separate drawing room, making it more of a small hotel than a guest house. All in all a terrific place to stay - I would recommend it to anyone. I stay away from home on short trips about 15 times a year, and will definitely use Aquae Sulis again. One extra point - the breakfast is superb - a wide variety of fresh fruits etc., etc. and I had a double eggs Benedict (a Royale), with smoked salmon and freshly made coffee. Thus - excellent breakfast, great night's sleep and the staff at reception and at breakfast were as accommodating/friendly as one could hope for.

Room Tip: My room was away from the road - room 6 - and I could hear nothing, but even the front of the house...

Thank you very much for taking the time to write your comprehensive review of Aquae Sulis. We are very pleased that we were able to match your expectations of comfort, service, facilities and food. You enjoyed your walk into town, but the buses also provide an all day pass for £4.20 with buses running every 12 min for when people feel foot-weary. We look forward to seeing you again in Bath. Thank you very much again.

Even though this is outside Bath centre the bus stop is outside and found this the best way to get into Bath and back. No need to use the car. The hotel was excellent and hard to find fault with the facilities that were spotless and more than adequate. The staff were very helpful and friendly would certainly go again and recommend it to friends and family. This is more than just a B&B.

The decor was homey, the staff was friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was very nice in a formal dining room. The location is a little outside of Bath proper and there is nothing of interest nearby. There is parking, which is great, but the walk into Bath is about 30 -45 minutes along a littered river path. The bus is affordable, but you have to walk down to the bus depot to catch a bus coming home.

Room Tip: The room was a little cramped (especially for tall people) with a sloping low ceiling, I am 5 feet 5...

Thank you very much for taking the time to write your review of Aquae Sulis. Your feedback is very important to us. We are glad you enjoyed your stay in Bath. The local bus service does offer a very good all day bus for £4.20. Also, unfortunately,we did not make clear that buses leave every 12 min from the Pizza Hut, which is close to our road. I will forward your comments about litter spoiling the riverside walk to city council. Thank you very much again.

Friend and I stayed at the Aquae Sulis Guest House on the 10th of January, I was pleasantly surprised by the room. I was in an executive room, which was massive and the bed was probably one of the most comfortable ones I've slept on.

Breakfast: A delicious English Breakfast, selection of fruits, drinks etc. Excellent.

One issue: A guest here and there may be noisy on the stairs, but I would still give it 5 stars.

Room Tip: Go for an executive room. Much spacious and the bed is massive. Try and book with the hotel directly...

We stayed in the hotel for a total of 4 nights. The place is big and our room on the top floor was of an adequate size, with a decent bathroom (great shower) and a comfortable bed. It was very clean. Breakfast was a full range of English and European classics served up in a bright and comfortable room. Wifi was free. Two things here stood out. The owners were very friendly and helpful, and even allowed us to book another room since we wanted to stay on another night. This was very much appreciated at the time. The second thing was that the hotel had on-site parking and was situated on an easy bus route - this was crucial since we bought a day ticket and rode in and around Bath all day, thus avoiding the parking fees of the central city which are expensive and rare. I would come here again. Bath is nice and the hotel allowed us to have a great base in which we could relax after a day touring the city.

The best breakfast selection we've had in our English travels (or outside England for that matter) - cereals, nuts and fruit followed by cooked English breakfast with your choice of content.
Super comfortable bed, spacious room, warm (it's winter) and very welcoming. We'll stay here again next time we visit Bath
