We just returned from trip through western England, and Bath and the Macdonald Bath Spa Hotel were the highlights of our trip. The hotel is like a manor house, set on gorgeous grounds. It's just a short walk to the center of Bath, but the hotel feels like a luxurious world apart.
Our room wasn't ready when we arrived, but we checked in, parked the car (very nice parking facilities) and took off on foot to tour the town. When we returned, our bags were set up in a beautiful, spacious room - the nicest of our entire trip. The bath was wonderful too and I was delighted to take a bath in Bath (sorry, couldn't resist...) All was clean and tastefully decorated .
The only downside was dinner in the restaurant. Although the food was good, it took over 45 minutes for our first course to arrive, and another half-hour for the main course. It's a shame that such a wonderful resort should suffer from such poor kitchen service. The wait staff was very apologetic, but the wait spoiled an expensive dinner. The breakfast buffet was wonderful, however.
We only wish we could have stayed longer (and eaten in town!).
