“superb!”
Reviewed 29 October 2013

Stayed here for two nights as part of the package deal that they do with dinner. The room was beautifully decorated with an amazing big bathroom. It was all spotlessly clean and decorated to a high standard. We had a three course meal in the restaurant which was all of good quality and service good too. It was all very relaxing and would stay again.

Room Tip: Room No 1 is the only room with a balcony but all rooms are of excellent quality.

We brought friends here for a night to take in Bath. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and only wish we had stayed longer! The restaurant was wonderful and we are very glad we booked a table ahead because it was packed. Next time we stay for 2 nights.

Room Tip: Room 1 highly recommended.

Room was lovely and clean, good size and great shower. Nice toiletries (body wash and hand cream) Coffee/tea machine in room was a nice bonus!

Breakfast was OK, the bacon was very well done (borderline on overdone). It was served until 10 and we went down at 9 but I think we must have been the last ones as they started clearing everything away while we were eating our breakfast which made us feel a bit rushed.

Stayed a single night here over the August bank holiday weekend. From the outside it looks like an ordinary country pub, but it is a fantastic venue. We were shown to our room by a very friendly member of the bar staff and were instantly wowed.

Everything was spotless, modern and tasteful, with nice extras such as a coffee machine with plenty of pods of every variety. We were in room 5 which from the photos appears to be the smallest, and space around the bed was a little tight. For a single night this was adequate and there was still a desk and sitting chair. The bathroom however was massive! No bath, but a fantastic large open shower, plenty of towels, slippers, bath robes, and toiletries. The bed was very comfy, a silent night's sleep, and despite the small size no complaints about the room at all.

The pub downstairs is equally as smart and relaxing on the sofas or outside with a drink is nice. We dined in the evening and although pricey, the food was delicious and portion sizes perfect. Very friendly staff and a great atmosphere.

Would definitely stay here again! There isn't a great deal in the village of Box, but after visiting Bath for the day it was perfect. Would highly recommend!!

Room Tip: Room 5 appeared to be smallest

First impressions were really good when arriving at the Northey just on the outskirt of Bath.
On arrival Michael the manager introduced himself and showed us to our room. He was very friendly and welcoming. They also accommodated our bikes and golf clubs overnight!
Although the room was small it was impressive and the design utilised the space beautifully, all top products used. Only small niggle about the room was the shower wasn't hugely powerful but manageable.
Very friendly bar staff who made us feel welcome and on hand to answer questions.
Our meal in the evening was great, the food was delicious (only niggle was no mint sauce for the lamb as they had run out, and there was a lot of lamb to get through). The sous chef did rustle up a sauce for me which was appreciated.
The bedroom was comfortable and there was no traffic noise.
Breakfast was really fab and we chatted with the owner who was also friendly and accommodating. I would definitely recommend this is as a lovely place to stay, being just outside the city is a bonus too and just 15 mins from the m4.
