My wife and I went with Shearings to Bath from the 19/23 May and stayed at The Lansdown Grove Hotel. The hotel is situated at the top of a steep hill but the 31 bus runs every few minutes to the centre of Bath and back again, if you find the walk too much for you.
The hotel does need a a good facelift but there is something quite quaint about it. Our room was 312, right over the main road opposite the bus stop so it was quite noisy but to be honest we've been in worse. You just have to get on with it and it was clean and tidy and a nice view of Bath. After fighting 3 rounds with the shower we finally conquered it. The lift was something to behold with it's carpeted walls and no more than 3 people allowed in it.
The staff were a credit to the hotel. Nothing was too much for them .They were so pleasant and well-mannered. The food was excellent and the staff were always on hand asking you would you like more toast, tea, etc.
As people have said there was no entertainment as such but it was nice and cosy in the bar and most of the Shearings people joined in for a good natter. We went on a couple of trips out, Cheddar Gorge, The Cotswolds and Bath itself. All in all we had a lovely time.
