i have just returned from a lovely weekend in bath.We stayed at the royal hotel which was in an excellent location for us as we travelled from bristol airport on the train the hotel is directly opposite the train station.when we arrived we found the staff helpful and friendly. we were in room 205. The room itself i would describe as dated and too warm.it wasnt sparkling clean but it wasnt dirty either if that makes sense! we stayed on a b&b basis, there was a good selection in the breakfast buffet although on my first morning i had to wait quite a while to recieve my cooked breakfast as the resturant was fairly busy at that time tho i must say the waiter did come to me after and apoligise he was very friendly. the evening meal i have to say was just average but again the staff polite and friendly. the menu needs to be reviewed as the food could be compared to that of a weatherspoons restaurant!!! i also ordered a cappuccino from the bar with scones and there was no sauces or chocolate powder to make a proper cappuccino much to the bar tenders annoyance as i heard him give off to the manager himself, my scones also tasted like thay had been warmed in a microwave, now i have to say i did find the bar nice and relaxing. i did feel sorry for a young couple who had come in with a young child in a buggy who had sat down and were in the bar for at least 10 mins before they were asked to leave because apparently it is hotel policy that residents children are aloud in the bar.and so to the end of our stay we checked out at 11am and were able to leave our luggage in a secure cuboard until we had to get our train. we decided to go for a walk, when we came back we had about 45 mins to kill b4 we got the train so we waited in the bar as we were all "tea d" out we didnt want any thing to drink. we were waiting for about 15 mins reading our magazines when a man asked us if we would like anything we politley told him no thank you unaware who he was. He then said to us "well this is not a waiting room u no" we explained to him that we were resisdents just waiting on our train so then he offered us a drink again explaining who he was " the owner"! Again we declined he continued to talk to us in away to compensate for being rude to us my partner ended up taking half a larger to keep him happy needless to say he drunk it rather quickly and politley left and waited the remainder time at the train station! So all in all the royal hotel has lovley staff but is very average i have to be honest i have stayed in better premier inns!
