It sits a little way outside of the main city, but it is a small price to pay to be able to park. We had no problem walking everywhere we wanted to go. The staff is fantastic and the building has great views. It was worth staying here for the breakfast!

Just back from a lovely two nights in Bath. This hotel is in a great spot for walking into the city. It has parking which is fantastic as for many city hotels this is an issue. The hotel is lovely, clean and modern. Public areas are very quiet but this is perfect if your seeking peace. We had a room at the back with great views, lovely comfortable bed & bedding and lovely big towels. Bathroom was small but how much room do you need in there!?! Good choice of breakfast, only thing was we found the bacon & sausages over cooked both mornings. Staff were very accommodating. Was no problem for us but If you can't manage stairs easily there is no lift. Would recommend this hotel.

We have just returned from a week's stay at the County Hotel, and we would definitely recommend it as a place to stay for anyone visiting Bath. The staff were all, without exception, very friendly and helpful. Our standard room was comfortable and homely and very clean. The only minor niggle I have is the lack of wifi in the room, although there is free wifi in reception. The City centre is a short 5 to 10 minute walk away, so the location is great. The breakfast was OK but nothing exceptional, and the portion sizes were definitely on the small side. Overall the County Hotel was a well run, comfortable and friendly Hotel in a good location. The only other complaint I have is the check-in time of 4pm, which seems incredibly late in my experience, especially as check-out is 11am. It also means that you effectively lose a day of your holiday.

This hotel is in a fantastic location, overlooking The rugby ground and the Abbey. Free parking and within walking distance of the town. Com and visit Bath and leave the car in the car park. You'll get a warm welcome, WiFi is available in reception (free) and there is a bar. Unfortunately there is no lift so request a first floor room if stairs are a problem.
I 'very been to this hotel four times and will come again in the future.

Room Tip: Best rooms are on the first floor. Rooms at the back will be the quietest. This is an old building a...

We were a party of two couples staying at The County Hotel early February. We were in Bath to watch our rugby team play theirs. The hotel was very close to the Rugby ground and we could actually see it from our room windows. The town centre was within 5-10 minutes walking distance so location was very good. We had booked deluxe rooms although we all felt sorry for the other guests staying in rooms which were not classed as 'deluxe' as they were very standard. The rooms were packed with unnecessary furniture and only one spare electricity socket for phone chargers, hairdryers, computer charges etc. The shower was reasonable although there was a constant pool of water on the floor after use where the screen and bath did not connect correctly. The staff were pleasant at check in but there were no staff behind the hotel bar. The atmosphere in the bar was incredibly uninviting. The music was played on a very out-dated mini stack music system so sound quality was poor. The breakfast room was bright and airy although the food was disappointing. The continental breakfast was a small selection of cereals, yogurts, concentrated fruit juices (not fresh) slices of ham and slices of tasteless cheese. The cooked breakfast was made to order. The description on the menu said eggs. bacon, sausages beans but when the food arrived, only one egg, one sausage and one slice of bacon were produced. The waitress was apologetic when we pointed this out although none of us wanted any extra as they were of poor quality. Location is good, staff are pleasant and helpful in pointing out places to eat and visit but I doubt vey much any of us would return to this hotel on any subsequent visits to Bath.

Room Tip: Request a room at the back as really nice views and front rooms will have constant noise from traffi...

This small hotel is situated perfectly for the shops, bars, restaurants etc and also for the rugby!
We had a lovely room at the front but was far enough from the road not to be bothered by noise. The towels were like no other towels experienced ANYWHERE! So large and soft! Really incredible!
The 'full English' was a little small and no black pudding offered. Toast was just one slice each but I expect we could have asked for more. The second day I had two fried eggs and then had the lovely, thick-cut ham from the buffet table and that was a lot more satisfying.
The staff were all very friendly and always on hand with advice (directions etc). We'd definitely choose to stay there for future visits.
