Lots of positives:
- excellent central (but quiet) location on one of Bath's nicest squares
- very recently refurbished: quirky, fun, stylish
- nice bar with exceptionally-reasonably priced champagne!
- generally nice and stylish room
- Brasserie Blanc restaurant - good quality food (although do book)
- 2pm late check-out offered readily for the Sunday afternoon.
A few not so good points:
- check-in: we arrived at about 11.30am, and asked whether we might get our room before the 2pm advertised check-in time; the response was dismissive and pretty hostile. (We came back at 1pm and another member of staff couldn't have been more helpful)
- we were in a feature room - the top category; it wasn't that huge; the bed was dreadfully uncomfortable (a strange ill-fitting mattress cover didn't help); there was only a shower as none of this level of rooms has a bath
- it wasn't especially outstanding value for near £250 per night.
So it's nice, and we enjoyed it, but it didn't totally hit the mark.
