I booked this hotel due to its good location and recent good reviews however my partner and I were left disappointed. Reception and concierge were very friendly so no faults there. The room was large and little extras had been added, however I stayed at a 4 star hotel 2 days later in Salcombe which exceeded every expectation I had...

Splashed out a little more for our 10th anniversary, and we wanted a spa hotel around Bath. We weren't disappointed! Spa was excellent, we could have spent a lot longer there, and the restaurant was amazing, very quiet and refined and we were made to feel very special. The food was outstanding too. Staff were polite and attentive, and our...

Booked this hotel because it had a pool for our young son and car parking local to the Christmas market. Arrived before check in time and was able to leave our car in the car park while going shopping, we had to come back to the hotel earlier than planned as we were told that the pool would be closed...

Hotel was beautiful, room very clean and worth the money. Great to have the choice of breakfast in bed and this service was easy to use but unfortunately our order was incorrect and the food average. Spa was a little dated and small but treatment experience good. Reception staff good but concierge friendly and helpful. Short walk to town but...

My daughter and I stayed for one night so that we could visit Bath and do some Xmas shopping. Hotel itself is nice and the spa was lovely but we decided to eat dinner at the hotel after a long day and we were extremely disappointed by the Collonnade restaurant. Firstly it was cold and there did not appear to...

We stayed at the 5 star hotel last night thinking it was going to be a great stay ready for a day of Christmas Shopping. Arrived at the hotel to discover that everyone has to pay £5 for car parking. Seams strange when you pay over £150 to stay for a night. Staff was very helpful and pleasant. Hotel was...

We stayed here on a family trip (two in their 60's and three of us in our 30's) I feel I'm going to contradict myself here... while our stay was lovely I was disappointed with the hotel. The setting is beautiful and very grand. The grounds are lovely. They have a lovely bar which it's nice to sit in for...

The staff - Ra in particular - went beyond the call of duty, but the bath is not accessible for a wheelchair user, and the room is way below 5-star - jaded, ragged, paint peeling, very cramped for a wheelchair user. Even the dressing-gowns looked really battered. Lousy view onto a fire escape didn't help. Restaurant mediocre - rump steak...
