We booked on the basis of a friend's recommendation and were not disappointed. The location is perfect, very close to the main attractions (Abbey, Pump Room etc) and plenty of bars and restaurants nearby. It's a lovely, honey coloured, Georgian buildings. Our room at the front was very modern and excellent quality with all necessary facilities, good bathroom and shower. We had a nice view of the little park across the street. The only downside to the room was that the milk for the tea/coffee was whole milk which we could not use. I would have thought semi-skinned was a safer bet.
The bed was extremely comfortable.
There were only towels/robe for one person and it turned out there were extra in the wardrobe which I only found out when asking.
We had to pay £15 a night to park which first of all I thought was cheeky but then when you get into Bath you find out that there's an almost deliberate anti-car policy so it is very hard to park for any length of time and for us having the benefit of a car park was well worth the extra. We paid £3 an hour after check-out but again didn't mind becauses our car was full of luggage and we preferred not to park it on the street.
Service at breakfast was very slow, and I was surprised to see they use those miniature jam/marmalade pots rather than putting these items in dishes. The scrambled eggs were horrid, too dry and I sent them back to get another lot equally bad.
All said, I really liked this hotel and would definitely return and recommend to others (though I might go out for breakfast!).
