We found The Boathouse to be rather special. The rooms were clean and comfortable with a large bed. The breakfast was waiter service, with full English or eggs etc to your liking. Cereal etc were to the side to help yourself. The staff were friendly and very helpful at all times, going out of their way to make sure you are enjoying the stay.
The facilities were good, with excellent choice of food at very reasonable prices, served either inside where there were plenty of seating areas or on the decking outside, with fabulous views of the river. This area had also comfortable cushioned seating for lazy afternoons.
The hotel is situated on the edge of the river with plenty to see. Just a short walk is the basin where you will find a selection of narrow boats moored. It is in close proximity to Bath with a river walk approx 4miles into the centre iif you are feeling energetic or you have the park and ride behind the hotel. From the main road there is also a bus to Bristol. Situated nearby is the Avon cycle trail with many miles of carefree riding.
This is truly a holiday where you can leave the car behind and enjoy life to the full. We are already planning a much longer stay
