“Charming little hotel in the centre of Bath”
Reviewed November 2, 2013

Stayed in standard room 3rd floor. No lift but the staff took our luggage upstairs. Room was not very big but tastefully decorated, and comfortable (would not have been so for very tall or large people though). Continental breakfast very nice. Staff very efficient as we forgot a small object in the room and they immediately sent us an email to inform us, offering to send it by the post.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. I am glad that you had an enjoyable stay with us and found all the staff to be friendly and efficient.

All of our rooms do vary in size due to the age of the building and all have been recently refurbished. I am glad that you found the décor to your liking.

I do hope we have the opportunity of welcoming you again in the future.

Kind Regards

Julian Mather

My girlfriend and I stayed for one night in Room 1. We found the staff to be super friendly, the hotel very quirky and clean, the room beautifully decorated (also bed very comfy and shower hot and powerful) and breakfast very tasty. As a gay couple we have had negative experiences when staying at hotels in the past, but this hotel is gay friendly and proudly displays a rainbow flag on its door. The hotel is perfectly located for shopping, eating out (Jamie's is a 1 minute walk away!) and sightseeing. We loved it.

Dear Guest, thanks for your comments. I'm really pleased you enjoyed your stay so much. We are proud to be a gay friendly hotel in the beautiful city of Bath. We care about people here and nothing else. We want our guests to have a great time while staying with us. As you mentioned Jamie's Italian is just a 1 minute walk away from us, as are dozens of equally really good restaurants. We have a Bath restaurant bible in reception with sample menus for guests to look at while trying to decide which restaurant to visit. Our reception staff are very happy to make bookings for guests and to make recommendations.

I hope we can have the pleasure of your company again in the not too distant future.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights in October. After reading the reviews we both has high expectations and they didn't disappoint. The staff were very helpful and friendly, the rooms were really lovely and had its own unique touch. The shower was excellent and the location was pretty much perfect- 10 minute walk from the train station and the thermea spa which was fantastic! Had such a great stay and would definetly go back!

Dear Guest, I was very happy to read that we managed to meet your high expectations during your recent visit to us at Harington's. I will pass on your comments to all all the team. We love hearing that people have enjoyed their stay with us. Having such a great location is something many of our guests comment on. It is great for the shopping season approaching with Christmas, the best shops in the city are on our door step. People love being able to just pop back with their shopping bags, drop them into their rooms and head out again, refreshed and ready to go!

We hope to see you back at Harington's again.

Despite being told that Bath was a hot bed of ghostly sightings there was no such experiences for us at Harringtons. Instead we had two very pleasent nights sleep. There was some street noise from the freshers week but they all toddled off to bed before 11:30pm so were no real bother. Breakfast was very good and enough to maintain a steady tourist trek around Bath until the soul weakened and succumbed to the temptation of Coffee and Cake. Would we stay again? Yes definitely. We took advantage of the hotel parking pass for Charlotte street carpark although the sat nav was in a spin with Bath's notorious chronic one way system!

Dear Guest. thanks for your kind review. You should have taken part in the ghost walk tour around Bath, I'm sure you would have enjoyed it. We try to keep all ghosts away from Harington's as they can get up to all kinds of mischief!

Sat Navs can be strange when driving around Bath. Some guests will arrive right outside the front door with no problems what so ever while others end up doing circles. If anyone is travelling by car print out the step by step instructions on our website on how to reach us, always a good back up for technology. Of course if you do get in a pickle, please just give us a call and we are happy to give directions over the phone. Thanks for your stay and we look forward to welcoming you again.

Me and my partner stayed here for 2 nights and what a wonderful stay it was!! We chose the feature queen double room and it was absolutely lovely. Nice relaxing decor, very stylish with a bit of a home feel to it. Had everything you could possibly need in the room or available from the reception. All the staff were very nice, helpful and always greeted us with a smile which was very nice and refreshing as now a days a lot of hotels seem to be lacking in good customer service. So 5 stars to Haringtons! I must mention the breakfast which was also super tasty. Literally the only thing I would say is maybe increase the salmon amount served with the posh nosh breakfast from 1 to 2 as it seemed a bit of a small amount for the amount of eggs. But merely a suggestion and can't stress enough that all the breakfast options we had were delicious ( regardless of the salmon amount hehe) This was our first stay but we will definitely return soon enough. Thank you for a lovely stay in Bath, look forward to staying with you again!

Dear Guest, Thank you so much for your kind words. We are always changing the breakfast menu here at Harington's. We try to source as much of our breakfast ingredients as possible from local sources. Our eggs are free range and come from a farm only 6 miles away. Our bacon and sausage comes from our local butcher just down the road, and most of his meat comes from farms within a 50 mile radius.

We have greatly increased our Gluten Free options. We now offer Gluten Free Sausages, Pancakes, porridge, bread, we even offer our guests gluten free biscuits for their room. So if a guest does have a dietary requirement please let us know prior to your visit and we are happy to do as much as we can to accommodate your needs.

We look forward to welcoming you back to Harington's in the not too distant future.

We stayed here for three nights in October

Positive: perfect location, nice room, very clean, good service

Negative: don't like having to pay extra for warm breakfast. When you pay for a room inclyding breakfast it's a big disappointment when you end up paying for breakfast anyway.

We also will give a free upgrade to guests who book directly with the hotel if they are available for the days of their stay (this can only be decided on the day). Come directly to the hotel and you will get the best deal available, Guaranteed! Plus you can talk to us about any special requests or questions you may have about your room type or the hotel in general. I hope we can welcome you back to Harington's so that you can try one of our delicious cooked breakfast! Many Thanks.

Very nice stay for my wife and I who were exploring Bath. Location is perfect - a nice quiet little street a stone's throw away from great pubs, shops, and restaurants, and the hotel itself was clean, tidy and extremely charming. Staff friendly, polite and helpful, and the breakfast was very good - all local produce, well cooked and plentiful. I would definitely consider staying at Harington's Hotel again were I to be visiting in Bath in the future.
