We spent two nights at this hotel to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We chose a "Bath skyline view twin" room and would strongly recommend these - they are on the 3rd floor at the front of the hotel and you enjoy a superb view across the city. Some of them are interconnecting so, if that is a problem for you, ask for one that isn't.
The hotel is in a quiet location, about a mile from the city centre, with a pleasant walk down a hill through the hotel's own splendid gardens and the Sydney gardens via the newly reopened Holburne Museum (free) and then along the flat and splendid Great Pulteney Street before crossing Pulteney bridge into the city. It's a £5 taxi ride.
There is ample parking for your own car and the hotel charges a modest £5 for your entire stay.
The spa facilities are free and very good: indoor 15 metre pool, outdoor heated hydro pool and a variety of saunas, steam room, ice room, showers. The only complaint is that, for a hotel of over 100 rooms, the pools are a little small and that the child usage hours of 10am to 5pm are too long. There are beds for relaxing on inside and out. We didn't visit the gym so can't comment on that.
Full breakfast was included in our rate and was very good - excellent selection of cereals, juices, hams, cheeses, fruit etc and very good cooked breakfast. We had tea and a sandwich one evening at the outside bar overlooking the gardens - very good but a little pricey perhaps.
All in all, if you want to go to Bath and stay in a very good hotel with good facilities, then consider the Macdonald Bath Spa.
