Just spent the weekend at this superb establishment by way of taking in the Royal Bath & West grounds Grand Flea/Antiques fair. At first a bit tricky to find with the odd road diversion in place, but arrival even in early winter darkness, the place is impressive. The bar was welcoming and the check in both professional and friendly, informative but not overbearing.
Our room (7) was booked as an executive room and you could easily see why. The decor is very impressive, good comfortable iron bed, subtle colour palette and a great victorian slipper bath. All mod cons are on hand with the possible bugbear to some of the poor wifi! But! The view is simply stunning.
We ate in the bar on the first night and the staff, ambience and exquisite bar menu was superb. The staff are mostly young and very polite and charmingly fresh. For dog lovers this is a canine paradise, and the parade of locals with trusty hound was endless. Breakfast is a relaxed and seem less affair with choice of cereal/granola fruit etc and a huge loaf of fresh heart healthy bread to carve and toast. The classic breakfast is simply lovely and I would defy anyone not to be able to choose another style of breakfast that suited them as clearly all tastes are catered for.
After a great day at the antique fair we came back exhausted, had a few beers and the a great siesta before indulging in what was probably one of the best meals ever!!! I have gone on and on but really I was so happy with this place, the room, the food, great wine and beer, ambience and staff ( even the guy who latish on Sunday night admitted to his love of " Justin Bieber") how we laughed. Well done all at The Queens Arms you made us very happy.
