Yes do yourself a favour and if visiting Bath experience Apsley House Hotel you won't be sorry.We booked into the Mornington room and having booked on their website we certainly weren't disappointed, the bathroom is lovely with a clawfooted bath ,the room itself has a wonderfully comfy 4 poster bed and access to the garden through some lovely french doors. All staff were very attentive but to Pablo and Louise a big thank you as you provided exceptional service. Breakfast had plenty of choices which we certainly enjoyed.Apsley House is easily found with private parking and as previously advised it is a 25-30 minute walk into Bath which is downhill then grab a taxi back 8-10 pound. Hope you enjoy as much as we did.

Room Tip: Mornington room is special.

Apsley House definitely lived up to all the reviews. We had a 2 night stay in the Garden Room. Had everything in the room we could have wanted and more. Steps out to the beautiful gardens directly from the room. Breakfast was fantastic, plenty of hot and cold options from very attentive staff. Very warm welcome from Pablo and Louise on reception. All staff helpful and informative. A pleasant 20 minute walk into Bath ( and bus stop opposite if you don't fancy the walk). Would have no hesitation in staying here again and Bath is a beautiful city.

Room Tip: All the rooms are different. Check out their website for the one to suit you

We have just returned from our anniversary in Bath where we stayed at this hotel and it was perfect. Pablo could not have been more welcoming in a very genuine way and the hotel was just lovely. We stayed in the Champagne room which was on the smaller side but the enormous comfortable bed made up for this and the room was so quiet, which was ideal. Yes the hotel is about a 25 min walk from town but it's all downhill and you can walk through parks some of the way. We walked in and got a taxi back. Being away from town meant no hen or stag parties either. My only quibble would be the fact that the kitchen door opens on to the breakfast room, so if you sit near the window with the best view then you hear all the kitchen banter which did ruin the ambience a bit. That said, we truly enjoyed our stay and will be back for sure.

We have just returned from a two night stay in Bath at the Apsley House Hotel for our anniversary. I booked the hotel based on the reviews on Trip Advisor and can honestly say it lives up to the reputation it has on here.

The hotel itself is a short way out of bath, approximately £7 or £8 by taxi. There are also infrequent buses (by London standard) or alternatively to walk into town takes approximately 20-25 minutes (if you are mobile!). Someone said earlier it takes 45 minutes to an hour to walk into town, they obviously have not done the walk. It is downhill into town and uphill back to the hotel, so if the weather is good it may suit you to walk into town and get a taxi back. If you are going to take taxis into town this is something you will want to factor into the price of your trip, if you stay for a weekend, head into town both days and travel by train you will end up spending just over £40 on taxis which is a hefty whack.

We were greeted by Pablo and Louise who were the first staff I have met in hotels in the UK who genuinely want to make your stay enjoyable. They were more than happy to offer advice on where to go in town, book taxis, or have a chat!

The Salamanca room was where we stayed for the weekend which is located on the top floor. This room was truly luxurious and offered impressive views across the countryside. The bed was lovely, the room had ample space for stowing clothes away (a large wardrobe, chest of drawers and individual bedside tables) and the bathroom was also excellent with both a ergonomically pleasing bath, new-style basin and waterfall shower. The pressure was fleeting at times in the shower and sink, but nothing that wouldn't be expected in a venue of this nature.

There are comments about mobility when considering what room to stay in, I would say that the first floor has a large staircase which will get you up there with little issue if you are reasonably mobile, but to get to the top floor the staircase is narrower, a little more steep and more winding so you will want to bear this in mind.

We enjoyed the breakfast on the first morning (was too relaxed on the second day having visited the Thermae spa the previous day!) and the food quality was good, however the portions were a little small - the English breakfast offers 1 sausage, 2 rashers of bacon, sauteed mushrooms, tomatoes and eggs - if there was one recommendation I had for the hotel it would be that lesser hotels have a lot more food on offer, so for the price the portion size needs to be bigger if not all you can eat.

A couple of other observations - The hotel offers free Wi-Fi throughout which is a nice touch, however in the Salamanca room the connectivity can drop at times - probably distance from the router? Didn't affect me personally, but I thought it was worth mentioning.

I also read a review saying that the walls are paper thin and you can hear everything throughout the building...yes it is true you do not get COMPLETE silence but this owes itself to the nature of the building. On our second night we had a couple with a small baby stay next door to us and we were not disturbed by them at all, so if you are a light sleeper it may suit you better to stay higher up in the building.

To conclude I will say that this is definitely a great place to stay that compliments the ambience of a city like Bath, I am the views are picturesque and while the price lends itself to that of a top hotel the experience matches the tag. I'd suggest that while you are in Bath you visit the Thermae Spa and Sotto Sotto, which I am writing separate reviews for.

I hope you have found this review helpful, if you have please don’t forget to click the “Yes” button.

Room Tip: Choose a high-floored room that faces out to the gardens for optimum views, the Salamanca room was excellent.

Not disappointed, booked after reading the reviews on trip advisor and must say its as good as its says.

I booked quite late and wAs left with no choice of room, but even though the description states smallest room in the hotel it was far from small. Excellent hotel, great staff, brill breakfast. It's a bit if a walk into town but there is a bus stop directly outside, we were fortunate to enjoy the walk through the parks to town thanks to the wonderful weather. Would definetely recommend.
