My partner booked us into hotel for my birthday. We arrived on 12.2.17 early for 'Sunday Lunch' which we prebooked, only to find this was not on the menu. We were sat in bar area & ordered off menu (£16 for2 x glasses of prosecco!!!). The food was delicious although service about slow. We then checked (easily) into room which...

The hotel is beautiful but staff was unhelpful and unwelcoming. The Spa which is meant to be the main attraction was crowded and dirty. Miles away from 5 stars standard. Best part of the stay was leaving.

What a treat, a lovely hotel, could be the best we have stayed in, the staff were fantastic. The room was amazing , the breakfast was superb and the spa was free and just as good as the one in the city . I can't recommend this hotel enough.

a true shame that such an incredible setting should be absolutely tarnished by unhelpful, incompetent, and rude administration and staff. On arrival we waited ages to check in, and were then hassled for parking fees (surely this could be rolled into the bill at 5 pounds extra at a 5 star hotel). The Jacuzzi and spa facilities were closed down...

This hotel is ideally situated in extensive grounds 10 minutes walk from the centre. Rooms are well furnished and the beds are very comfortable. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff who are attentive to guests needs. The Spa is fantastic and it is great to be able to have a swim after a day's sightseeing. Highly recommended.

We have stayed here a handful of times and the hotel and grounds really are stunning. So much so that we chose the venue for our wedding. The staff are always happy to help and the customer service is excellent. Great location to visit Bath city.

This was a terrific stay. The service was very good - friendly and helpful - and the food and rooms to a high standard. The highlight though was the spa, with an interesting mixture of thermal rooms and a wonderful outdoor spa pool. A great place from which to explore Bath.

I have just returned from an amazing Valentine's trip staying at this hotel. We stayed for 2 nights bed and breakfast and booked through Expedia. The hotel grounds are beautiful! The hotel sits on a hill so has great views over Bath and the building itself is breathtaking when driving up. When arriving we were greeted by the concierge who...

I'd never stayed in a five star hotel before. I expected the spectacular, but for all the ambience, the excellent service and the beautiful grounds surrounding this enormous, ex nurses' accommodation (among other uses in the past), I have to say I ultimately felt disappointed with the room. I guess the devil was in the detail, for me (and call...

This hotel has great staff and a classic charm. It is well located for central Bath and has great spa facilities. The lower ground floor rooms we were in were a little worn in places but quite spacious. Very quiet location.
