We enjoyed a lovely long-weekend at Dukes Bath for our wedding anniversary. It’s always great to find an independent hotel with friendly service and loads of character! We had an anniversary card waiting for us in our room and small gift which was a lovely touch.
The hotel is a five minute walk from the city centre, we took the train and had a twenty minute or so walk from the station and other guests were given street car parking permits on arrival. All of the attractions- the Roman Baths, Thermae Baths and famous streets are all easily walkable. We arrived in the morning to a very friendly welcome and left our bags so we could go exploring unencumbered until the check in time.
The decorations and period furnishings in our room had an oriental theme as did the dressing room. The bed was very comfy, there was a hair dryer, dressing table and plenty of room to get ready in the bedroom. There were two TVs with free-view channels and tea making facilities in the dressing room. When we visited there were a few hot water issues that precluded having a Bath but we both had showers with no drop off in temperature at all.
Breakfast included a continental buffet and cooked breakfast as well. I enjoyed the fry-up immensely thanks to the quality, local ingredients. Again all the staff and owners were very friendly and happy to provide advice on the long list of attractions. We had booked our restaurant and theatre night in advance which is worth doing if you are visiting over a weekend as the centre was very busy.
All in all a lovely stay I would heartily recommend!
