We stayed in Bath overnight as we decided to use the Easter Break to see some sites. I originally wanted to book the one nine three hotel, but after leaving it until the next day was disappointed to find it had been booked. I noticed on the website then that this hotel was another hotel they recommended so after reading all the reviews was very excited to be staying.
I was very disappointed with our stay. Don't get me wrong the staff were very pleasant and could not do enough for us when we stayed there, but I was very disappointed with the "hotel" itself.
We stayed in the one of the 4 poster rooms and on initial look it looked lovely. On closer inspection wallpaper was coming off the wall, above the fireplace there are water marks all over - wondered if there had been a leak? The ceilings had water marks also.
The light on the bedside table must have had a dodgy connection as when we put something down it kept flickering. The jacuzzi didn't work because the cleaners had flicked the switch, so it wasn't until the next day we asked about it as we were going out.
Also very disappointed, the photos made me think I was staying in some grand mansion in Bath, these photographs taken very cleverly from the back. I would not have booked this hotel if there was a picture from the front. The views from the back are amazing though over Bath city itself.
Overall we paid £115 for the night and I honestly was disappointed. A few days later we stayed in a Hilton hotel for less money and couldn't have fault it. We were going to book the Hilton Bath but I decided instead to book something one-off. I was expecting luxury, one off rooms with a luxurious jacuzzi bathroom, but I was disappointed. I will learn not to read too much into people's reviews next time as I think it was "hyped" up too much and added to my disappointment.
If you want great views though with friendly staff - this is the place for you. If you expect abit more of a luxurious feel then maybe not.
