Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 July 2014

This a beautiful hotel. The rooms are gorgeous, divinely decorated, well-presented, clean and comfortable. My husband and I stayed in 'Wellington' and were incredibly happy. My daughters ended up staying in 'Argyll' and were very comfortable. The hotel is extremely well-positioned and within easy access of the centre of Bath and all interesting sites.

The staff were unbelievably helpful and considerate - nothing was too much trouble. They truly spoil you here and will do anything to ensure that your stay is a happy and memorable one.

Breakfast is delicious and more than ample. Lovely way to start the day.

The only negative is the stairs. As the building is a Grade 1 heritage-listed property clearly a lift was not a traditional design feature. We were happy enough to run up and down the stairs [helped to work off all the good food we ate] but just take the stairs into consideration and travel light. Although the staff will try and accommodate any and all requests regarding rooms - you just need to let them know what you need in advance and they will go out of their way to help. Particularly Amy - thank you for your kindness.

We highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: be aware of the stairs

We stayed at dukes for one night just for a get away. From booking online to arriving nothing was to much effort. They even let's is have a parking permit prior to the 2pm check in time, when we arrived back our bags were already in our room.
Staff were very helpful and pointed us in the right direction for the attractions and also for a car park on our last day.
Very impressed and wouldn't hesitate to return. Thank you Dukes

What a great place! Very conveniently located a short walk from the centre of a Bath and a beautiful old building! The rooms are lovely with lots of space and very high ceilings. We stayed in a room with a four poster which is worthwhile. The staff couldn't do enough to help and gave us a parking permit for the car and robes and towels for our visit to the Thermae Spa.
The people of Bath were very friendly and so much to see there. Lots of nice shops too!

We offer a range of rooms from the functional ‘tourist overnighter’ through to the ‘four poster’ room you enjoyed. For the team it is always great when we are able to match the room to the guest need. A lovely Georgian sash windowed room, combined with a stroll along Great Pulteney Street with a couple of hours at the Thermae Spa – a revitalising tonic indeed!! With thanks and we look forward to your return.

Booked to stay 2 nights during our trip to Bath to celebrate my 30th Birthday and i would absolutely recommend this hotel. The Staff were all extremely friendly and helpful, going out of their way to offer dining recommendations and providing maps to attractions.

We stayed in the 'Somerset' room, it is on the top floor, it is a very light and spacious room with a nice bathroom with a decent shower.

Breakfast was very good, made with fresh local produce and you can have as much as you wanted. There is also a buffet table with lovely homemade muesli.

On my Birthday the Dukes had kindly left me a card and box of choccys for me, Thank you Dukes!

Room Tip: Remember its a Georgian building- There is NO lift- there is a lot of stairs but the lovely Period f...

Delighted to read that you enjoyed the ‘excellent service’ and ‘beautiful building’. Dukes rests within two magnificent Georgian townhouses. We have the good fortune to stand on Great Pulteney Street, regarded as one of the finest Georgian boulevards in Europe. Very pleased that you found us attentive and that we helped enhance your '30th Birthday Celebrations'. With thanks

Lovely B&B a few minutes walk from Bath city centre.

Nothing was too much trouble for Carol and Amy. We came as part of a group (one of two groups staying over the weekend) and had to change our booking several times. They were on hand to greet us and help us to our room and provide information on places to eat and drink within walking distance.

We stayed in Lienster. It is up four flights of stairs but the views of Bath are stunning and the room has been very tastefully decorated and furnished. Tea making facilities were available in the room but Saturday afternoon Amy very kindly made us a cup of tea to enjoy in the reception area!

Breakfast was delicious with plenty of choice and all cooked fresh to order. I can recommend the smoked salmon and scambled eggs.

We are blessed with a ‘goldilocks’ location – a five minute level stroll from the heart of Bath. We feel that our complimentary tea and coffee making facilities in the rooms help make the stay more welcoming and hospitable. We endeavour to look after all our guests as individuals – even if in a group – delighted you enjoyed your pot of tea !!

Stayed at Dukes Hotel for 2 nights for my birthday. Found a parking space easily and got a parking permit from the hotel.The hotel is in a fantastic location, only a few minutes walk to town, bars, restaurants and the main attractions. All staff were very helpful & friendly.
We stayed in the Leinster room which was on the top floor. It was spacious, well equipped, decorated beautifully and the views were great too.
Breakfast was delicious and there was plenty of choice. The service was prompt and friendly.
We had a discount card provided on the room key. This was a very nice extra as discounts are available at many restaurants and attractions in Bath with this. We used to get 10% off the admission fee to the Roman Baths.
We had a brilliant stay and when we return to Bath we won't bother looking to stay anywhere else!

Just returned from our weekend in Bath staying in the Buccleuch 4 poster room at Dukes. A lovely room, excellent and friendly service and great breakfast. Parking was easy and then there is no need to move you car as everything is in walking distance. I don't give many 5 star reviews but Dukes is well worth its rating, If you are going Bath, stay here.
