Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A classic-styled hotel with a modern feel, the deluxe room we had was very spacious with a luxury super-king size bed. I was impressed by the decor of the room from the large ornate chandalier, the upholstered counches to the walls decorated with gold wainscotting throughout the room, which complimented the grandiose classic style of the suite. The room was fitted with a large LED TV with apps such as Netflix, Amazon, Disney+ etc. The bathroom was extremely large and felt very luxurious especially with the freestanding deep-base bath tub. There were also a range of complimentary drinks and snacks available in our room. The entry to our room was on the ground floor of the property, which made easy access to and from the hotel lobby especially with young children. We had the breakfast included, and whilst to a satisfactory standard in a beautiful setting, i would say to include a greater range of halal and vegetarian options and preferably buffet style. The service we received from the staff was really warm, welcoming and friendly. Overall, I had a lovely experience and would highly recommend a stay at this amazing boutique hotel.

Luxurious comfy mattress, superb roll top bath and a lovely welcome on our one night stay at this boutique hotel. 3 course evening meal was outstandingly delicious and so was breakfast (eggs Benedict). Easy free parking on site and 5 minute drive to the large Charlotte Street car park in Bath. Couldn’t be lovelier or more convenient. Honesty bar and comfy relaxing lounge. All very pleasant indeed.

This is a wonderful, off the beaten path and away from the central tourist area, boutique hotel. Located in a quiet part of town, yet a 30 minute walk away from the center. Staff were all accommodating. Breakfast was wonderful and plentiful. Note for US visitors that their king size bed room is more like a US queen, while the super king is more a US king.

We took over the complete hotel for our daughter and son in law’s wedding. Absolutely delighted with the hotel in every respect. But it was the people, .. Kate and her team who made our weekend so special. Everyone was approachable, friendly and professional , nothing too much trouble. Food delicious, rooms delightful, the complete package. Thankyou again. We cannot recommend enough…..

Bathen House was the perfect wedding venue for us as our wedding was on the small to medium side (roughly 40 guests) and I cannot fault a single thing. The level of service and attention to detail from all staff on the day was exceptional but I would like to give a special thank you to Kate who worked closely with us in the months leading up to our wedding to make sure everything was organised and ran flawlessly. Her attention to detail, fun and friendly attitude & professionalism on the day to ensure all guests were taken care of and that everything ran flawlessly really put us at ease both in the build up and on the day itself. Both Kate and Joe (Head Chef) helped us adapt our menu where required and everyone commented just how incredible the food was. The same can also be said for the breakfast which the hotel provide as it was amazing. As many of our guests had to travel from other counties (Hampshire, Surrey, Essex) we were able to coordinate a two night stay at Bathen House for roughly half our wedding party who having spoken to after would all recommend the hotel and look to stay there again for a return trip to Bath as it was perfect. Our other guests stayed in different hotels around Bath but taxis were easily available to get to where people needed to be. Bathen House will deliver you an incredible wedding party and make the day special for not only the bride and groom but everyone who attends. All staff were so friendly it really makes a difference and I cannot recommend it enough. My wife and I cannot wait to return to Bathen House and stay in a hotel which will always be special to us - thanks to the staff and service we received.

Everything was absolutely perfect and better than we could have ever imagined or hoped for. Kate and the rest of the team went above and beyond for us and all our guests, it was truly the absolutely best day and would not have been possible without the fantastic team at Bathen House. Their attention to detail throughout our stay was impeccable and truly made us feel so comfortable and relaxed about all the arrangements. The food was absolutely incredible and all our guests commented on how delicious everything was. We wouldn’t change a single thing. Thank you to everyone at Bathen House for helping to make our day so special.

A lovely stay with friends. Easy parking right outside, all the staff were friendly and our room was immaculate. Stunning bathroom and everything you could need or want for an over night stay. Carpets need to be updated but that is my only criticism.

A lovely hotel. We booked in for 2 nights and it’s a beautiful place to stay. Room was perfect. Very large with a huge bathroom, all very clean. The decor is classy and traditional which we really preferred. Add some personality. Breakfast we great in a large bright room, well cooked and served perfectly. Plenty of parking and less than 10 minutes into Bath centre. Would definitely recommend.

Easy enough to find and easy enough to par (parked at back). Nice chap came out to help with bags although we didn’t need it but very nice to offer (so CCTV works !). Check-in easy – same really nice and helpful chap. Room 3 just along from reception on ground floor. Large bedroom, no wardrobe just a small hanging rack on the wall (but if staying for 1 or 2 nights it’s not an issue) but plenty of storage space anyway. A coat/robe hook would help though so you have somewhere to hang a coat especially if it’s wet. Large window to front of property with chairs. Then door with large glass panel through to large (very large) bathroom with very good shower. Another window to front of property. Small but comfortable lounge with honesty bar just back and before reception and opposite entrance to restaurant. Very nice. Getting into Bath itself is either taxi, walk (maybe 30 mins) or bus. There is a bus stop just outside but we found the running irregular and roughly 1 per hour or even more than an hour. We walked in which is easy and don’t remember being passed by a suitable bus. We also walked back. Dinner in the restaurant was excellent. Good food & well presented. Not cheap by any means but nice. The young man serving was truly EXCELLENT and a credit to the hotel and his parents. Sleep…………ooooooh, a surprise was in store. The hotel is lit up at the front at night and they don’t switch off. They will shine into your room. The bedroom has decent curtains but the bathroom doesn’t have anything (obviously) and the adjoining door has the large glass panel. It is a massive oversight. The outside ‘flood’ lights shine in. I had to get up and ask the really nice Polish lady on reception to switch them off. But she didn’t know how or where the switch was. After 10 minutes or so texting the owner she located the switch and they were off and the room as it should be. Putting a simple blind over the bathroom door would sort this problem at minimal cost. It has to be said that this Polish lady (really sorry that I don’t know her name) was BRILLIANT !!!! Breakfast also excellent and served by the same excellent young man. All in all a very nice hotel & restaurant, expensive, but I would still recommend it.

We've stayed in this boutique hotel before, it's a bit out of town but there is plenty of parking for guests and the rooms we've stayed in are very nice. This stay was even more special, which we'll put down to the excellent service from Olav (the Polish gentleman with the pony tail - apologies if I've spelt your name wrong!). Olav and another lady looked after us really well as we dined at the hotel on the night of our stay, this too is highly recommended. Olav was also there to look after our breakfast requests, he did everything with a smile and was a real pleasure to deal with, thanks Olav!

When we're back in Bath, we'll be sure to return, hoping to experience Olav's excellent and welcoming customer service again.
