Stayed for 2 nights in January. Staff were friendly and most helpful. Lovely large flat screen TV on the wall in room. Value for money and very central location. The only downside was no car parking facilities. There is a car park 2 mins. away but very costly.

I loved everything about my stay in the Abbey Hotel. The service was great. The rooms was very clean, nice and cosy. The hot breakfast was marvellous! The location and the view of my room just excellent! My room had a river view!

We enjoyed very much our stay in this comfortable and friendly hotel. The hotel does not have a car park but we easily parked close by and it is hard to find such a central location that would have a car park. The rooms were clean and nicely furnished and we had an enjoyable time in Bath.

Spent one night in Bath in late July and stayed at the Abbey. Very nice accommodations, helpful front desk. The location is excellent since we were only blocks from the train station back to London. Also within comfortable walking distance to the Abbey and the Baths. We did not eat dinner there preferring to explore other venues in Bath, but thoroughly enjoyed our breakfast. We had two rooms, one facing out toward the square and one with a not so good view out the back, but that was okay. Both were comfortable and clean and the beds were comfortable, as well. Would book there again and recommend to friends. As a preservationist, I liked how they reused the building to accommodate the hotel.

You just have to walk out the door and Bath is in your lap. There is a car park 2mins away and it's free from 8pm till 8am. Other times are pay parking all over the city. The hotel was undergoing winter refurbishments which meant the lift wasn't working, nor was the roof top bar open. However as the staff are so courteous, the rooms so pleasant and the food so good we didn't even blink an eyelid at the inconveniences. They allow you to leave your luggage in the hotel when you have checked out which was great for us. The hotel exhibits contemporary art which is a touch I liked. We had the wild mallard and bream as main courses and they were delicious. It makes such a difference when staff are pleasant, professional and friendly so I would like to commend them on that. Prices go up quite substantially later in the year,so would I stay there again? yes, but in the lower season.
