My husband and I booked for one night. We had a voucher deal with wowcher, one night stay with 3 course dinner champagne, cream tea, and breakfast. We stayed in room 306, with all amenities, iron board, trouser press, complementary fruit bowl and bottle of water in room. Comfy bed looking out on to offices but quiet. Staff were very...

Everything was superb. Friendly and attentive staff. Fantastic food. Great location. Spotlessly clean. I was here to celebrate my 50th birthday and had a gorgeous meal in the hotel there really is no need to leave hotel to look for places to eat. The menu is extensive.

We stayed here on a dinner B&B package. There limited parking charges at £8 per day but very handy especially in city centre location. Staff were great, very welcoming and friendly. Paid for a room upgrade to a suite, room was decorated very grandly with chandeliers and flick wallpaper but still retaining the original character. Room was very warm and...

Thank you for your review. I am pleased that you enjoyed our award winning breakfast apart from the fact that you felt the portions could be larger which, with respect, came as a surprise as we invariably get compliments about how generous our portions are. I was equally surprised to read that you felt that the a la carte menu...

I stayed with my boyfriend for a couple of nights. We really enjoyed it. We found the rooms so comfy and although the decor maybe seen as a little outdated I found there was a homely feel to it. The bed was comfy and the bathroom was lovely too. My favourite thing was actually the location of the place. It...

My partner and I decided to visit Bath as a Valentines Day treat. We stayed at the Royal Hotel on the 13th February and left on the 14th. It was a delight from the start to the finish. You can check-in at any time after 14:30 and check out has to be before 11:00. The receptionist at the desk was...

I booked this hotel via an offer with Wowcher. 2 nights for 2 people, dinner, bed and breakfast with a glass of champagne on both nights and a cream tea on arrival for £249 - bargain! Whilst the hotel is not decorated in a modern way, it's designer Isambard Brunel created this building very tasteful and spacious. We arrived on...

Many thanks for your review following you stay with us. I am delighted that you found the offer “a bargain” and in particular enjoyed our award winning breakfast.

I can only re-iterate what the reviews on the first two pages already state. A great warm and cosy hotel with very welcoming staff.. We were two couples on a 'Travelzoo deal' which was excellent value and we were NOT treated as the 'cheap and cheerfuls'. We even had two rooms next to each other (without requesting this). We were...

Booked the hotel with the best location to the train station and previous visits to the bar area. Some reviews mentioned noise at the front of the hotel but this was not a problem with the secondary glazing. If you like non modern hotels you will like this one. The breakfast is worth mentioning that the selection is very good...

Lovely, hotel for a great price, perfect central location and friendly staff. The room was fairly small with only a view of the back of other buildings. However, it was exceptionally quiet and very clean and cosy. We really enjoyed the food, both breakfast and dinner were delicious. Thank you for a lovely stay.

Sited directly opposite the train station the Royal is in a perfect position for those using the railway. What might colloquially be called "spitting distance". Our room was not large but more than adequate for our two day sojourn. The food was excellent and although on a special "deal" we were able to choose from the whole dinner and breakfast...
