The Abbey Hotel in Bath, UK is a wonderful hotel. Located in the heart of Bath it is easy to get to from the train and central to all of the Bath attractions you want to see. The hotel has a great restuarant and a bar with a complete selection and friendly, helpful staff. I give it a five star rating, and if I could I would jump it up to a 6-star.

Such a great stay here - the hotel is 5 mins walk from the train station, and really close to all the main Bath attractions. The room was comfortable and the staff really great. We didn't eat in the hotel as we had booked other options, but from what we saw, the restaurant looked great. Perfect for a romantic weekend away, or a weekend with the girls!

This hotel was VERY CLEAN and had the most comfortable bed we slept in on our 10 nights in the UK. The service was really friendly. They provided free bag storage, which was a huge help while we went on a day long tour of Stonehenge and surrounding areas. The breakfast was very good and made to order. The rooms might be a little small for some, but didn't bother us at all and added to the quaintness of the hotel. Excellent area of the city near the major shopping and attractions and easy walking distance of the train station.

Room Tip: We had a great view of the roof tops out our 3rd floor room. It looked just like a "Mary Poppin...

Over the bank holiday weekend we stayed at The Abbey and received a great services all round. On arrival we was offered a free upgrade to one of the suites, and advised they will push for our room to be cleared before the 3pm check in time. The location of the hotel is faultless and the reception will show you on a map the sights to see. I would highly recommended on having breakfast at The Abbey also as it is to the highest standard.

Stayed at the Abbey Hotel 3rd May 14. What a great hotel. Friendly service, nicely decorated and a great location. Hotel choice was down to recommendation from family mainly down to location and the restaurant. Had a great stay with a big room including a huge bed! Bathroom was a bit dated but was spotlessly clean. Booked a table in the restaurant when we booked the hotel a few weeks before and I think we were lucky get a table. We enjoy dining out and are lucky to have a good selection of top restaurants local to us in Cornwall. We often eat great local restaurants such as Rick Steins, Fifteen and I would say The Abbey Hotel restaurant beet our expectations. After dinner we had drinks in the bar, again the staff in the bar were friendly and we all enjoyed our delicious cocktails.
Breakfast was exceptional!
Would stay here again.

Thank you for your review, so pleased to hear that we were recommended to you, personal recommendations are always the best.

Many thanks for your feedback on Allium, we have a strong local following for Chris Staines food but we do love it when hotel guests dine with us and enjoy the full Abbey, Allium, ArtBar experience.

I note your comments on the bathrooms, they are being refurbished this year along with further redevelopment of the bar and public areas, we still have lots of changes to make and keep moving forward.
Really delighted that you had such and enjoyable stay and I hope we can welcome you back again soon.

Kind Regards

My husband and i stayed here over the bank holiday weekend in room 5. Room was clean well furnished and quiet overlooking the beer garden. Breakfast was plentiful with a good selection of cereals, yogurts etc. freshly prepared breakfast was great and served on piping hot plates. Big than you to the ladies so accomodating and friendly. In fact all the management and staff went out of there way to make this a most enjoyable stay. will certainly be back.
