Reviewed 27 October 2009

We have just returned from a 5 day Shearings holiday to this hotel. On arrival at the hotel we were all taken care of quickly and efficiently. Our room was good and our bathroom was excellent so large and with a wonderful shower.

Evening dinner was served at our own chosen time betweeen 6.30pm and 8.00pm. This was nice as some coach tours are far too early dinner times for us. The restaurant was very nice and the food was excellent with a good choice. The restaurant staff were all very friendly and most helpful most of them being eastern european and lovely young people. Nothing was too much trouble for them.

The room was kept lovely and clean and the towels changed daily if required. The Hotel is on a steep hill but there is no trouble with buses which are quite regular. Bath is a lovely city and we enjoyed lunch at two nice restaurants Marmaris (Turkish) and Cafe Du Globe (Morrocan). This was for us a treat as our town has neither a Turkish or a Morrocan restaurant.

All in all the trip with Shearings was excellent value and we hope to visit this hotel soon,

Booked this hotel after seeing advert in Mail on Sunday offering special rate for 4 nights DBB. Have never stayed in a Shearing Hotel before but thought we would give it a go. Hotel in very good position approx 15 min walk into Bath but we used this as a base to visit other areas. Hotel staff very helpful, service in restaurant excellent, Food excellent, if anything portions were too generous. Room good size and very clean. Shower was amazing. We would have no hesitation in trying other Shearing hotels in the future and would recommend this as a great little hotel for a short stay.

We stayed here for 4 nights, me and my partner.
The hotel offers lovely views of the charming city of bath. However its on top of a huge hill, so if you are arriving by train or want to visit the city centre a taxi or bus is required. We are 2 fitish people in our 30's and the hill killed us! The hotel does provide car parking though.
The room was large and well appointed, perfectly clean with a nice view of the gardens and city, although the decor was a little dated.
The food was great, with a lovely resturant and attentive staff.
Entertainment was proved some nights, but we mostly stayed in the bar, not venturing into town as it was a bit of a trek, with the huge hill to contend with. The bar was ok, but alittle small, however there are other lounge areas you can sit in.
A nice hotel and good value for the money. Best bit, the wonderful resturant and food.

We stayed at this hotel over the bank holiday weekend. We were pleased that we could stay for just two nights (many hotels require a three night minimum for these weekends) but it fell below our expectations. We were hoping for a lovely old house, but what we found was a run down place with pretty terrible food. The room needed refurbishment, our bed cover had holes in it and the bathroom was very old. Breakfast was revolting - the fruit with the cold breakfast was stewed prunes or tinned grapefruit, and the cooked breakfast was adequate but boring. The place clearly caters to an older market so perhaps it just wasn't aimed at us. Staff were friendly enough but the home made tip box at breakfast was very tacky.

My wife and I stayed at the Lansdwon Hotel for two nights, 21st and 22nd August. The hotel is nothing like the pictures as it is now very much in need of being closed down and refurbished to bring it to an acceptable standard. The car parks are small and cars are paked in a way that makes it difficult to get in or out, the reception area is small and dark with furniture that have stains and have seen a lot better days. The lift is very small, only 3 person max, and is a throw back yo the 70's with carpeted walls, after exiting the lift on the tird floor we still had to go up stairs and along lonf corridors to reach the room. We had an Ambassidor room and if that was a larger room, God help the others. The carpet was dirty, the view was of the roofs and the shower when turned on sprayed the ceiling and could not be adjusted. The grouting was coming out of the tiles and in general was not even at a Travel Lodge standard. The meals in the resturant were small and having paid for 'half board' I was amazed to find that all but the basic courses had a supplement that had to be paid to 'enjoy' a steak cost another £6.50.
On Saturday afternoon we got back to the hotel and went to the bar, no one in attendance but the guy at reception came in and served, he also was serving coffes and tes, sandwiches, you name it he had to do it as there were no other staff on duty, not impressed.
In general I would advise anyine going to bath to go as it is a beautiful City but aviod the Lansdown and find another hotel

We booked a 3 night weekend break and paid £5 a night each for a front facing room with a view overlooking the hotel gardens and down into Bath. Ours was spacious and clean with a comfy bed. Reception friendly and helpful. Breakfast included choice of cereals, porage, juice and yogurt with hot food option as well (typical of Shearings for travellers who know the brand). Evening meal again fine with choice menu. Dinner time staggered from 7 pm - on arrival reception asked your preference for this. Good car park with space at the front and rear of the hotel and across the road; a must as a car in the city is not of much benefit where traffic jams are frequent. If you're on holiday then avoid the hassle of driving. Lovely downhill walk into Bath takes about 20 minutes and longer coming back obviously. There's a frequent bus service coming out of Bath which reception explains about and the stop is just outside the hotel. Evening entertainment is limited; the age of the hotel dictates the room sizes and so there is just no space for much variation. All in all good value for money. Our second visit and it won't be our last

Had a very relaxing weekend at the Lansdown Grove Hotel, the decor was a little bit tired but very clean and for the price (£79 for 2 nights) excellent value for money. The staff were the friendliest and most helpful I've come across and I have no complaints. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it or stay there again.
