SACO Bath - St James Parade
Ranked #2 of 39 Specialty Lodging in Bath
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 14, 2007

This place is smart and comfortable and a good alternative to a hotel (see all the other reviews for more detail)...

But beware, SOME of the rooms are pretty small and shoeboxy. Some of the rooms at the back overlook a row of wheelie bins (overflowing while we were there) and staff having fag breaks - so not really ideal for a romantic weekend in Bath...

If you want somewhere designer with your own kitchen is place is for you, otherwise you might want to try for a £39 room at the Travelodge?...

Stayed: May 2007

Just hada couple of nights at the SACO - great idea and wonderful, clean apartment with plenty of facilities and friendly staff. Big problem though - no car park. You can't park on the street in Bath unless you are a local with a permit or pay and display and only stay for an hour at a time with no return for at least an hour. Another alternative is to put the car in a car park at ~£20 per day and have to take it out of a night (you can park on the street after 18:00 hours - if you can find a space) or as we did (on the advice of a local Bobby) park it a very long walk away (1/2 mile up Widcombe Hill - which is VERY steep). Returned to car (left parked under a street lamp) to find that some joker had walked across the roof and left large dents in the car.

I always thought Bath was going to better than it was but Roman Baths were expensive (£11.50 each to get in) and they even wanted a £1 to enter a park down by the river.

All in all - SACO was great - Bath itself was a let down - won't be going back.
