Small and dingy rooms - poor breakfast in a dining room that was sticky to the touch! Bar is a bit of a laugh and if the door to the managers office is open then don't look. If the management of the hotel is compared to the standard of the room's organization then that just about makes sense of the place. Car park - well - don't get there too late or park too far down the bottom end!

Anyone who uses hotels regularly will find this place very expensive against what it delivers and if i was a foreign tourist then I would not be happy if this is British hospitality in such a fine city.

Room Tip: Doesn't matter really - none are ideally placed but make sure you get the type of room that you...

I attended a wedding party on 25th May and had a wonderful evening. The setting was absolutely gorgeous and the staff had gone to great lengths to make sure everything went smoothly. The food was good, espcially the buffet with amazing chutneys. Gary the Manager also acted as wedding planner, coming up with great suggestions to make our friends' day the best ever. He even looked after their dog in his own house for 2 nights so they wouldn't have to worry about him. I would definitely recommend The Old Mill if you're organising a big event.

Just returned from a w/e at the Old Mill, we stayed here whilst attending a wedding at the Hilton in Bath, and it was chosen by us, due to nearly fifty percent cheaper than Hilton and also offered free parking, Rare in Bath.
Having read some reviews I went with an open mind, But room was excellent (115) we had 3 single beds having our son with us, beds were comfy, room was clean and tidy. Breakfast was fine and service very good. We never managed to have time for the evening meal, but would defiantly be on a list of hotels to return to.
We walked to bath along river which takes around an hour, Taxi back around £8.00, bus for 3 of us £7.45, and on the day of the wedding we caught the boat down the river.
Lovely spot and hope to return in the future and have some time chilling around the hotel.

Room Tip: A room with a river view would have been excellent.

We held a wedding party on 24th to 25th of May 2013 at the Old Mill Hotel, Batheaston. There were 107 guests invited to the party... Most of us stayed at the hotel. Some of us went on a boat from the hotel to the pultney Bridge, then to the guild hall for the wedding. The wedding service was beautiful. We then took two buses on a city tour around bath. The buses took us back to the Old Mill Hotel in batheaston where we were welcomed with Pimms by the river. Then a loverly Bar-be-Que and buffet.
The manager and all of the staff looked after us so well and we were very lucky with the weather.
To all of the staff and the manager,
Thank you so, so, much for a wonderful and memorable weekend.

Room Tip: The rooms in the lodge are perfect for a night. The main hotel is more for if you are treating yours...

For over £100 per night we received a very small room right next to a busy road.

Rude manager moved us on request to a room which overnight smelt like a sewer, and charged us an upgrade fee. The bathroom was inaccessible due to the strong stench.

No compensation or acknowledgment of our complaint by management, and we were not the only ones at the reception complaining. Apology received after being prompted.

Breakfast wasn't great.

It may sound like I am being snobby, but I am a very tolerable individual, and this was definitely lower than acceptable standards. Fantastic location, nice building but that was used to the management’s advantage which made our stay quite disappointing.
