Decided on a whim to jump on the train and spend a night in Bath,we chose the Royal due to its location to the station,not knowing the layout of the city,we thought this would be a good choice as we could dump our bag and explore.We need not have worried as everything is on the doorstep,shops,pubs,restaurants,attractions,all within comfortable walking distance.
Check in was friendly and stress free,we were given the keys for room 204,we were more than happy with our room,decorated in a tasteful victorian style,with a canopy and pleated drapes around the head of a HUGE bed,good quality linen and pillows.We had double aspect windows overlooking the station (not a great view,but is city centre).We loved all the little extras,robes ,slippers,chocolates,biscuits,and my favourite,the caffietere with twinnings ground coffee (bliss).The bathroom was spotless! With both bath and shower,and once again all the little extras,besides the usual shampoo etc,we were provided with a sewing kit,shower cap and shoe shine kit.
Plenty of choice at breakfast,the main menu offers,cooked breakfast,kippers,smoked haddock,eggs benedict,unlimited tea and ground coffee.
TIP- The night we stayed,we had the windows open and due to the proximity to the station,you will experience some noise (bing bong,the next train to arrive etc).Also night time revellers chatting and laughing on there way for taxis.This did not bother us at all,and did not affect our sleep quality.But if you are sensitive to external noise,it might be worth asking for a quiet room.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Royal and would definately stay again
