A very nice place with enough quirk to be interesting. Lovely staff. Not given it the best rating as it is quite far out even for brisk walkers. Also the basement bedroom we had, whilst very nice was dark and airless with a hint of a damp smell.

Apsley House is a fantastic b&b in a beautiful building. The bedrooms are lovely, as is the dining room with roaring fire and honesty bar. The service and staff are fantastic and the breakfast is fabulous with plenty of choice. The only place we would stay in Bath.

We had a great stay at Apsley House.

The hotel and our room were perfect. The staff were extremely helpful.

Our room, the garden room 8 was ideal for the three of us with a great side room with a single bed that was just right for our daughter. The room was very peaceful however you can hear footsteps from the floor above but not to the extent that it was a problem.

The hotel is a 30-40 minute walk into Bath and unfortunately it rained most of our stay although there is a bus stop almost outside of the hotel and a taxi was about £7.

Breakfast was great and we definitely would have dined at the hotel if they opened the restaurant for dinner.

As the title of my review suggests we couldn't find a fault with Apsley House Hotel.
The property itself is beautiful; Elegant decor all over, a relaxing and calming reception room/lounge with a view of the garden, a piano, newspapers everyday and an 'honesty bar' (whic is a nice touch) all of which can be enjoyed until 10 pm every night.
Our room was impeccably decorated and the bathroom was again, beautiful. Both shower and bath were a pleasure to use. The bed...well! I havent had a better nights sleep in along time.

However all of these factors are usurped by two other factors; Staff and the breakfast.
Te breakfast offers beautiful fresh fruit, granola and yoghurt as 'starter' (a starter at breakfast?!!) and the cooked breakfast was cooked perfectly both days and quite obviously used the best ingredients (all sourced locally). Tasty but not greasy. Eggs poached too perfection. Fresh juices. Freeshly ground coffee. Mmmm.

And the staff couldn't do enough. Helpful, efficient and very friendly. Ornella who welcomed us on reception and Kate the manager deserve a special mention but every member of staff we came across were great.

The cherry on top; i made a 'special request' for Apsley House to provide some Ice cream as a small surprise for my partner who loves ice cream; Not only did they do so but it wasn't added to our bill.

Top notch stay.

Room Tip: We stayed in Salamanca which is middle of the price range. From the other rooms that we 'sneaked...

It's our first time back in Bath after 25 years and Apsley House couldn't be faulted . We had such a warm reception from Kate and Miro after a fraught journey . We stayed in the very luxurious and quiet Mornington Deluxe for the first night , then the Copenhagen, also very comfortable . The breakfasts were delicious and kept us going all day until dinner . The poached eggs were cooked to perfection . The staff were particularly friendly . Nothing was too much trouble . We forgot an umbrella and Kate went to get her own personal one . We were given some excellent recommendations including Martinis and Tilly's Bistro along with being able to "park in the park."
Will definitely return.

What a beautiful Hotel!
First time to visit to Bath - last minute booking and a great rate from this hotel possibly due to the fact that Somerset is a no go for most with the floods.
Stunning property, stunning view and a room which was tasteful and spotless.
Service was excellent and love the idea of the honest bar!!
Staff were excellent and extremely helpful - what you would expect from a 5* hotel.
Breakfast was also fantastic and plenty of it
English breakfast of choice including specials.
Cereals, fresh fruit, yoghurts and croissants to compliment.
Definitely recommend this place.

Room Tip: Stayed in Room 11 - Garden room beautiful.
