    This hotel is very conveniently located for walking in to the city of Bath. And the room we had was clean. But that's about all I could say on a positive note. Our room was quite small considering we'd paid £100 a night. The breakfast buffet was laughable; cheese triangles and jam - give me a break. We saw what was on offer for breakfast and immediately did a U-turn and headed for a nearby restaurant - luckily there are many good ones close to the hotel.

    We stayed at the Parade Park as part of a sports team, in Bath for a competition at the university. We paid more for the room which we had than it is usually priced at as the cost of accommodation had been spread out amongst the team. Nevertheless, having looked up the price of the room, I still think it is somewhat steep.

    For a start, our room had shared facilities - this B&B is charging more than Premier Inns/Travel lodges where you're guaranteed an ensuite. Furthermore, these facilities weren't even kept in that great condition. There were two combined toilet/shower rooms servicing a large number of rooms. The linoleum was coming off the floor, one of the toilets didn't flush properly, there were no hand-dryers or paper towels, just normal hand towels on a rail (very unhygenic). If you wanted to shower, the room steamed up greatly as there was no ventilation except for a window which was actually within the shower cubicle, so you had to shower in a breeze. The shower itself did not work properly, it kept switching between hot and cold, in the end, I settled for tepid. We weren't there long enough to raise these issues, so I don't know what the management would have done.

    Moving on to the room, it was tiny - no room to put a suitcase, let alone the two large sports equipment bags that we had to fit in. The paint was chipping off the skirting board (as it was all over the hotel) and there was inadequate storage. There was tea and coffee making facilities, yet no spoon! We had to stir hot drinks with keys! There was, at least, a sink in the room and, somewhat strangely, a brand-new, large, flat-screen TV. Whilst this was a nice luxurious touch, I'd have rather there been a lick of paint, some spoons and maybe a new matress with an older TV...

    Breakfast was certainly nothing special - nothing hot was available, as far as I could tell, although you could see that there was a kitchen attached to the room. The bread was fairly low-quality, as was the ham and cheese on offer. If only a 'continental' breakfast is on offer, I would expect more options, such as a fruit salad, croissants or other pastries or at least higher-standard crusty bread.

    Yet not all was negative. The location is fantastic, we certainly benefitted from this on our 'social', being just a 30 second walk away from 'The Huntsman' pub/club. Everything in central Bath is easily walkable. Equally, the staff were very helpful and friendly, offering a great local insight, for example, about where to eat. Whilst we didn't actually go to the bar (it was packed with rugby fans during our stay) it seemed friendly, light and had a good atmosphere.

    This said, from our personal experience, this was nothing more than a hostel, yet they are charging hotel prices. Touches such as the TV are nice, but it seems like this hotel hasn't quite got the basics, such as touching up the woodwork or keeping on top of maintenance of the bathrooms right. The place is in need of a facelift and a re-thinking of room prices.

    Room Tip: Go ensuite!

    The impression given on the webpage is very deceiving.
    Our room only remotely looked like the images shown - I recognised the bed frame.
    The establishment reminded me of something between a B&B and a hostel. Maybe the give away was that they actually have rooms with "shared facilities".
    Anyway, it is very difficult to find a family room in Bath, close to the centre, over Easter so I am not sure if I could have gotten anything better. But £270 for 2 nights in this place is really totally overpriced.

    The room: the floor was very uneven and felt like it had been padded under the carpet. The furniture is at its very basic and the matresses need replacing. At least it was clean.

    The breakfast: shameful. again as basic as can be. Two types of toast, selection of packaged cereal, prepacked cheese, marmite, nutella, butter and jam and one type of fresh cheese and one type of fresh ham. any B&B would do this much much better. AND on the weekend the breakfast end time is at 9.15 - not for the leisurely tourist!

    Staff: one of the plus sides. Very friendly. The man that checked us in was very helpful and gave us some good restaurant recommendations.

    Location: the other plus. It doesn't get much closer than this. You can see the Abbey from the Breakfast room and the Roman Bath is about a 3 minute walk.

    So would I stay again?
    To be honest I don't know. Even though I thought it was basic and expensive there isn't much choice here if looking a room with three beds. the location is fantastic and if you know what's coming it's ok.

    My partner and I really enjoyed the stay here immensely. We booked a double and got a huge family room instead! The staff were very friendly and the lad at the reception desk was a born-in-bath, knowledgeable, and cheery type who voluntarily gave us some great tourist advice and directions. Having read some of the comments on here, I would say that the owners seem to take them to heart and I note what appeared to me to be fairly recent updates such as the internal security doors. The continental breakfast was good and fresh (cereal, yoghurt, cheese, fruit, toast, eggs, coffee) and the serving staff were quite jubilant, which made for a great atmosphere to start the day. In general, the Parade Park offers a good stay, but be aware that the décor, carpeting, and paintwork is a little older than what you might experience at your average commercial hotel – after all, this is just a guest house. Also, the en-suite bathroom is quite small, but like the rest of the hotel, is perfectly functional, clean, maintained, and hygienic. In our room there was a flat screen TV, so I would say that at least some of the photos on TripAdvisor are from a few years back.
    Overall, a pleasant stay at a reasonable price – think of it like staying with an unobtrusive nan.

    Room Tip: Don't book on their website directly.

    Despite some bad reviews we took a risk and booked this hotel for one night from Friday to Saturday because the location is perfect for those who travel by train and other accomodations in the area either charged much more (Bath is more expensive than even London!) or didn't alow one night booking in weekend.

    Our stay was quite satisfactory. The only real problem with the hotel was the absence of the Internet connection in the room but for one night we could live without the Internet.

    The room was quite large, it measured approximately 5x5 meters (including the en-suite bathroom), equipped with wardrobe, LCD TV, a kettle and a selection of tea bags . The bathroom had a bathtub with shower. The water temperature and flow from the shower weren't very stable, being considered a minor issue. There were no toiletries except liquid soap, another minor issue as we travel with our own minimum. There was a note that hair dryer and iron with ironboard are available from the reception upon request.

    The room had two windows facing the back yard - therefore we didn't have a chance to experience reported noise problems from traffic and the dowstairs bar. Moreover, the bar at 9 pm Friday was half empty - however, by 6 pm Saturday in front of the bar there already had been gathered quite a crowd of patrons, completely blocking the sidewalk. So, Saturday night is to be expected noisy on the street side of the building.

    The breakfast is self-service continental with hard-boiled eggs. Hot drink (tea or coffee) is serviced on request.

    The luggage may be left on the publick side of the reception counter. Frankly speaking, it is not guarded, so leave it on your risk.

    Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the back yard
