My wife and I chose this hotel for a mini break to Bath as we had not been there before. Having checked the Tripadvisor recommendations this looked to be a good hotel for us and we were not disappointed. The location is excellent, we were able to walk to all of the major attractions without difficulty.
Car parking here is extra but we knew that. At £15 per day it is not too bad but if you are driving remember to factor this in. Parking is by valet so you can pull up right out front.
Our room was on the small side but perfectly ok for a short break. This is a period property so it has a few quirky features which are actually endearing. The bed was very comfortable, bathroom was small with a smallish walk in shower (no bath) but again fine for us. The room was spotlessly clean and free Wi-Fi is available throughout.
Breakfast is served in a room in the lower level and was fine, All the usual breakfast fare available with a fresh cook menu for certain things. Certainly no complaints. The main restaurant is run by Raymond Blanc. Food and service here was excellent. We were advised to book but actually we would have easily got in without booking. Lots of other good looking restaurants within easy reach of the hotel. Staff were friendly and very obliging throughout.
We would definitely stay here again on any return trip to Bath.
