Ideal location for exploring Bath on foot & only 5 minutes walk from the train station.
We arrived early to the hotel knowing we couldn't check in early, but the receptionist was very helpful offering us the opportunity of leaving our luggage at the house & offering a map of Bath so we could make the most of our day.
With several pubs and restaurants literally on the doorstep, not to mention the Abbey itself, it really is one of the best locations in Bath.
Checked in the the Joyce Hasset room, great size rubbish view, basic bathroom but the added touches of bath robes, slippers, bottled still & sparkling mineral water were very appreciated.
Our only negative was with the breakfast, over priced at £15, very basic, buffet table not very inspiring with only a basic choice. Breakfast served luke warm. The fried bread on the cooked breakfast was the worst we've ever had. Rock hard and completely cold. In fact it was so hard we could barely snap it in half using our hands let alone cut it!
Many of the tables were not laid up fully so the waitresses kept taking items off one table to move it to another which isn't a particularly good practice.
All in all, the staff were very good, the room very comfy and quiet but if staying again, we'd go and look for breakfast elsewhere!
