We stayed at the Limpley Stoke Hotel for two nights whilst visiting Bath. The hotel is only a 15 minute drive from Bath City Centre and very easy to get to but the scenary couldn't be more different - the hotel is in the heart of the Mendip hills and the views from our room were stunning.
We stayed in Room 5 which is at the front of the hotel and has a four poster bed and a very nice and appears newly decorated bathroom and rainwater shower (which was a first for us) A couple of downsides to the room were that the curtains didn't quite stretch far enough across the window so did not block out the light from the car park and because of the mainline railway running close by you did get the noise of the passing trains - we were so tired from sightseeing this did not matter and we slept through most of them.
The breakfasts were the usual hotel fare. Filling enough. Hotel staff were friendly and polite.
We ate both nights down at the Hop-Pole Inn at the bottom of the driveway - with full stomachs it makes the walk back up a little slower but the food was ok although when they were busy they did get our order's mixed up but resolved it very quickly.
A lovely hotel for a short break - the views make it worth staying in.
