A lovely one night stay in room 2. Very well appointed room with super king bed Apple TV, tea, coffee and water. Private balcony overlooking the river Avon. Decor very modern, the en suite was also clean and modern with nice toiletries provided.
Breakfast was good but not a huge choice of cold options just cereal.
This is just a pub with rooms so no check in desk or room service and there was no information in our room, but this did detract from our stay. Ate in the restuarant very good fish and chips.

Room Tip: Room 2 facing the River.

We booked direct through the Brains (brewery) website a superior room for £150 per night on a bed and breakfast basis. Lesser (standard) rooms were £120 per room per night while the riverside rooms with balcony were £140 per HEAD - ie £240 per room/night for B&B.

We found our way to the bar (there being no reception desk or even notice indicating where arriving guests should go to be checked in) and eventually the barman/manager appeared and led us upstairs to check in. No porter or help with bags, but there is a lift if you can find it. Our room had a large balcony overlooking the side lawn. It was a large and well provided room, with an en-suite bathroom (2 sinks - nice, when both of us want to be getting ready at the same time) and an Apple Mac which provided both internet, TV and radio. On the face of it, a good room. However, when night fell we found the bed had only a bottom sheet, and no under sheet or comfort fleece over the mattress; the was no writing paper; the top of the (open) clothes hanging space was FILTHY, and these two issues reflected the general standard of housekeeping as far as we could see. Breakast in the morning was slow and most of the food cold - but your eggs are cooked the way you like them. No, sorry, that is an exaggeration: the menus said 'eggs' (plural) but in fact we got only one each. One of everything; one half of a tomatato (cooked, but cold), one mushroom (cooked but cold), one sausage, one rasher of bacon and one poached, runny egg - just how I like my egg(s). In truth there was only one (so far as we could see) waiter to deal with 18 persons for breakfast, so he was working fairly hard, but for all the speed - or lack - of it, that breakfast was served at, he could have been doing the cooking too!

I know this is Bath and hotels can command a premium, but with that you might expect a bit of an effort towards a premium service, especially for £150 per night B&B right on the outskirts of the city. This establishment gets around the customer service expectations by describing itself not as an hotel or even a B&B; it simply describes itself on it's menu card as 'a riverside pub with rooms'. Well, at least they are not being pretentious. Except in their pricing policy, of course. It is a good average B&B, with - in the case of superior rooms - large and well appointed rooms with decent facilities but at £150 it felt a bit like 'because it's Bath' exploitation. £90 would have been fairer, which is what we paid in a 4 star hotel for B&B in central Bilbao recently when we visted the Guggenheim Art Gallery, albeit the breakfast was self-serve and buffet style, but it was all hot..

Room Tip: Rooms 2, 3 and 4 overlook the river at £140 per person per night. Room 5 had largest balcony overlooking the side lawn but you do get cooking smells when the kitchen is working. Rooms 7 , 8 and 9 overlook either the side utility areas or the front car park (with early morning bin lorries for an alarm call)

We stayed in room 9 in Sept 2012

First off, neither the booking website or hotel website lists the room's amenities so this is below.

Room contains:
Kettle, tea / coffee and biscuits
Bowl of cadbury eclairs
2 x bottles of water (1 still, 1 sparkling)
Hairdryer (with attachments)
Full length mirror
Apple tv / computer (inc dvd player)

Bathroom contains shower bath with shampoo, conditioner and shower gel provided. Also has 2 x shaver sockets.

Overall the room was modern and seemed finished to a good standard. There was fan noise from outside the window from the kitchen below but this ceased when the pub closed. The apple tv was a nice touch, but although there are usb sockets it didn't recognise devices plugged into it so we were unable to stream from our tablet. Bathroom nice with a good shower.

Downstairs, the pub is nice enough in the Wetherspoonsy style that modern bars seem to go for - but the outside is lovely, right on the river. We ate there one evening and had burgers which were very nice. Breakfast was also decent - served in the conservatory which is a nice setting. Check in itself was a bit confusing as there are no signs for guests so had to ask at the bar where to go. Having said that, a member of staff was very quick to check us in and show us to our room, and staff were pleasant and helpful throughout our stay.

Location is a few miles out of Bath, but this is not an issue as it is on the main bus route from Bristol to Bath - nearest bus stop about a 5 minute walk away, day rider tickets were £4.10 each which allows unlimited journeys to Bath and back. Last bus back leaves the city centre at 11pm. Alternatively there is the park and ride car park next door to the hotel, but we did not use this as service stops at 8:30pm. This was £2.50 return pp.

Overall, a nice place to stay and would definitely stay there again if we return to Bath. Very affordable - particularly due to free parking and cheap all day bus travel into town.

I had to come up for a business function and decided to bring my Hubby and have an overnight stay and explore Bath. Had read Trip Adviser and was thinking it would be OK.

All staff helpful,polite and friendly, room lovely and very clean. Big squishy bed with lovely pillows and bedding and a good nights sleep. Only issue was a hot day ( the only one this year!) and so left window open and was woken by reversing lorry at about 7am. Normally not an issue as would be up but was going to have a lie in... But thats as bad as it got.

Room Tip: We were in number 7

My husband walked in and declared the pub his new Favourite Pub Ever.

Very good food - slightly let down by veggie burger on our second visit, but three out if four isn't bad. Beautiful decor, too. The cod was especially nice.
