This is a good hotel in a great location. It is in easy walking distance of everything you will want to see in Bath and is comfortable and pleasantly modern without going over the top.
The staff are really friendly and helpful and the reception areas are lovely. The room was a good size and the bed comfortable and lots of nice touches in terms of a Nespresso machine (I know it was effectively an advert) etc. Also for a hotel in the city centre it was quiet - tripple glazed with effective air con. There is also car parking which is a bonus although you do pay quite a lot for the priviledge, especially of you leave the car for a couple of hours after you check out to see a bit more of the city. Good breakfast too.
So why 4 stars. Well the room really wasn't clean enough - it just needed vacuuming again and there was dust in some places as well. I would expect more. I will also be picky which I feel you can be when sending this much, but why is there on space to hang one towel in a bathroom of a double bedroom?
A word of warning also if you have any problems with mobility there are steps in the corridors to the rooms once you get up the stairs and even though there is help getting the cases to the room you may need to ask for it on the way out.
These are minor quibbles I guess but just enough to stop it not getting top marks.
