My wife and I first stayed at this hotel many years ago having recently been built. It was a controversial developement as some Geordian buildings had to be demolished to accommodate the hotel. It's design was also controversial and was know locally as the shoe box. It is close to the centre of the city with Pultney bridge and the Abbey being quite close by. Parking is a problem as the hotel has an arrangement with the Waitrose short term park next door. Be warned if you arrive on Friday afternoon or Saturday morning you may have to wait for a space whilst people shop at Waitrose. The reception and lobby area is very nice. There is a bar at one end where you can get a good lunch. The Restaurant is at the other end and is very comfortable. Breakfast was fine with plenty of choice and the food was well presented. We didn't eat there in the evening as the Vegetarian choice was limited. If you are a Vegetarian you will find choice in Bath to be limited. On arrival staff discovered that it was my wife's birthday. One of the staff arranged a birthday tray to be delivered to the room which was very kind. The room was spacious with a good view of the river. The bathroom was cramped with not much room between the shower and the toilet. The last 3 hotels we have stayed in have all had glass doors to the bathroom. On this occasion there was a mirror opposite the bathroom which made all activity in there visible. Maybe this is a trend amongst the opinion formers but I didn't like it. The room was clean and well looked after. The staff were friendly and helpful. For me the parking maybe a problem..
