My wife and I have just returned from a 3 night break at this hotel. Previous reviwers have summed up the hotel so well that there is little more to add other than to emphasise the excellent service provided by the restaurant staff.

We stayed for 3 nights on B & B basis and chose it because of the good reviews it had. We weren't disappointed and can recommend it if you want a good value break. Yes it is on a steep hill, but only took about 15 minutes to walk into Bath city centre and buses and taxis are cheap if you don't fancy the walk back.
The room was very clean and warm and any problems or requests were quickly sorted out, for example the kettle leaked but it was replaced straight away when we asked.
The bathroom had a great power shower and although there were some minor faults with the bath in that it was showing signs of age damage, this didn't detract from the general overview, that this is a good hotel to stay in. It has character and a relaxing atmosphere -- no drunks returning at 2am waking everyone up for example !
Most of the staff are foreign but speak english and are always pleasant and welcoming.
Bath was lovely and the Komedia comedy club is a good night out too.

having read some negative reviews over this hotel prior to our stay I was very surprised and pleased that it was not what I had expected.

the hotel provided a map of "how to find us" but whether it was me having an off day it was ambiguous. we found it by luck and glad that we picked it.

The staff were very helpful, the room was above average, and you have to get used to the quirky method of getting to the room, there is one winding corridor after another.

The hotel was set in some very nice gardens and the hotel receptionist provided a map of how to get to the city centre on foot by the most attractive route-- this took in amongst other things the famous Crescent.

Given its location this is not for the less mobile but we throughly enjoyed our stay and recommend it.

Just got home after a 5 day shearings holiday staying at the Lansdown Grove, what a fantastic hotel, the place was spotlessly clean, all the staff from the manageress right down through the dining room staff to the man behind the bar were all very pleasant, efficient and smartly dressed.

The food on every evening was excellent, plenty of choice, piping hot and well cooked, the dining times were in sittings 6.30, 7.00, 7.30, 8.00 but there was always plenty of choice and they never ran out of anything, my only tiny gripe was that the dining room operated a sit anywhere policy so you never knew where you would be sitting from one day to the next, I prefer to be allocated a table on the first evening and stick to it.

The bedroom was a good size and very clean, we had a lovely view over the gardens to the side of the hotel, the TV had normal and satellite channels, and there was a good choice of teas and coffees on the hospitality tray with a small packet of biscuits replenished every day.

The bar itself was very small but there was an ajoining lounge bar where we sat each night, entertainment was provided on three nights and was very good, drinks were a reasonable price.

One thing I would say is that I wouldn't recommend this hotel to people with limited mobility , firstly the hotel lift only holds three people and you had to wait ages for it and the hotel is at the top of a very steep hill, but there is a bus stop a short walk from the hotel with a good service to the city centre

The local taxis don't cost the earth either, about £3.60 from Bath Abbey back to the hotel.

All in all a fantastic relaxing holiday would recommend this hotel to anyone.

We have just returned from a long weekend at this lovely hotel. It is conveniently situated 5 mins from the Royal Crescent and 10 mins from the city centre.
There is a local bus which stops outside to take you up and down the steep hill to the city centre which saves trying to find somewhere to park in Bath. The hotel has a small car park outside with an overspill one over the road.
The food was excellent and the staff were all very pleasant and efficient. There was a wonderful pianist/ organist playing in the bar on Friday and Saturday which we loved but if you want bingo and a dance this is not the hotel for you!
In Bath we did the open top bus, Roman Baths and the river cruise which we took from the village of Bathampton into Bath and back as you can park in a free carpark there.
In Bristol we parked at the SS Great Britain which we visited and caught the open top bus from there.
Altogether a great weekend staying in a lovely hotel which we will visit again.

I recently stayed at the Lansdown on a 4day break I had read
reviews that ranged from terrible to good so iI decided to go with an open mind.

Upon arrival we were allocated a room that overlooked the back and I requested a change for a very reasonable £20 I was given
an upgrade.
The room was bright clean and nicely furnished the bathroom very clean large and spacious.

You have to keep in mind that this hotel is somewhat old but the communal areas bar and lounges are clean and comfortable.

The staff are very helpful and the dining room is bright and the
food throughout our stay was basic english cuisine or to say
it better good old fashioned home cooking with a good choice
on every evening the breakfast was multiple choice and the food was always fresh and hot.

I got as I say a pleasant surprise the bar prices are not in
my opinion over the top exactly what you will pay in a pub

Its an ideal location for going into downtown Bath and a regular bus service is literally 30 yards down the Road I went by car
and unlike a previous reviewer I never had any problem parking
the car park hold about 10 cars but directly accross the road is another overspill car park so parking is fine.

I would go there again no worries at the price it was a bargain break
