Stayed for two nights with friends to make a group of four including the New Years Eve gala in imperial suites. The gala was probably no better than average with OK food and variable service - we had unfortunately turned up late so it took an age to get anything to drink as everyone else had sat down and service...

We spent New Years Eve at this hotel and we were pleasantly surprised at the level of comfort of the room and with the facilities. The spa was clean and with a good inside swimming pool. The outside pool was not as good as others I have used as the temperature could be warmer. It was well situated near the...

We stayed here on New Years Eve to attend the Gala Buffet so didn't get the chance to see much of the hotel itself but, from what we saw, we have every intention of returning for a longer trip. Location - Less than a mile to the centre of Bath but the hotel grounds are very spacious ! Hotel -...

Staying here between Xmas and new year with my husband and baby girl, was very impressed with hotel and facilities. 15 min walk from Bath centre, all the staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast choice was good, for lunch or snacks rather overpriced so better to go out. The walk back to the hotel with a buggy is a serious...

Pleasant stay, but not mind blowing. Rooms could do with updating. Some of the furnishings need to be replaced and some paint put on the walls but otherwise very comfortable. Spa was nice, if a little busy (with no lockers available). Breakfast was a let down due to buffet style of not particularly high quality. Over all though it was...

We were a party of four who had booked a two night package that included a seven course New Year's Eve dinner. Things started well as we were able to get early entrance to our room, although it took 25 minutes to check in. The rooms are very good, ours had recently been refurbished, it was clean, comfortable, well appointed...
