Booked a 2 bedroom and 2 bath apartment based on TripAdvisor reviews. Overall, met the high expectations we had after reading the many reviews. Traveling with spouse (50's) and mother (70's). We had a few problems finding the complex, even using GPS / sat nav, but I think that was due to road work in thr area and marginal street signage.
Unfortunately, when we arrived there was no one at the front desk and the front door was locked. I had to call the SACO reservation local number. Fortunately, I had a cell / mobile phone and was able to phone their main reservation line . Once I call ed the SACO number, they sent a receptionist from the business meeting, taking place in the complex, to meet us. In total it took about 10 minutes but it was very disconcerting, particularly as I was traveling with my wife and mother and we had been driving for some hours. Clearly, SACO need to understand that customer service (someone at teh front desk) must take precedence over company meetings. It was disconcerting but once the receptionist arrived, all went smoothly.
We were assigned an apartment on the lower floor (can't remember the number but it was below grade at front and on grade at back). At first, I was disappointed because it felt like we were in a basement / cellar. But the apartment was spotless, spacious and well-equipped. As well, it was bright in the living areas and quiet in the bedrooms. Beds were comfortable. Included internet service was good.
It was a nice break to be able to relax and make our own meals, even if mostly of prepared foods from M&S.
The location is terrific: ideal for walking in Bath (two blocks to Roman baths). An M&S, one block away, provided a good selection of prepared entrees, desserts and wine.
I thought the lower hallway smelled musty and damp, but I detected no musty or damp smells in the apartment itself.
After spending 8 nights in regular hotels, the SACO apartment was a nice break, in a great location, in a wonderful city.
Parking is in the public garage 5 minutes walk away. I was a bit concerned about vehicle security. But it was actually quite convenient, safe and relatively inexpensive.
