“An Excellent Base”
Reviewed 5 May 2012

This hotel is overall excellent.

Our room was on the third floor (ground being the first), a larger one. The bathroom was extremely clean, and fully tiled and modern, the shower was good but pressure could be greater. Unfortunately the basic extractor fitted was insufficient to clear the humidity efficiently and so we sometimes had to open the bedroom window for a while. The bed was good and the cleaning was very good. We had two bedroom windows but only one of the sash windows opened.
Breakfast was simple but one of the best; freshly cooked. As advertised there is no evening meal but there are several really good local restaurants.
Service was very friendly, efficient, very courteous and polite, and we felt at home.
The pub opposite, The Raven, seem to be a local, was friendly and had some eclectic but soothing beers. Try the upstairs, open after 17:00.

Regarding Bath, we were underwelmed. The open-top bus ride was a rip-off; but the Abbey (particularly the Towers Tour) and Roman Baths a must, and No.1, The Crescent interesting. Check the spa because my wife thought it was an exorbitant, ~ two hours of testing Archimedes Principle.
But apparently Bath is great for shopping!

I visited the Harington with my parents and my 12 yr old son. While parking was not onsite, it was within a 3 block walk. Very easy especially considering you are staying right smack in the middle of the city! Bath is busy and filled with traffic, but this hotel was a little oasis in the middle of it all. The staff were friendly and accomodating. The breakfast selection was immense! And we so enjoyed it! The bar was a little added bonus. The rooms were very tastefully decorated and large. I will most definitely stay there again!!!

Great little boutique hotel in the centre of Bath. The staff were very friendly, efficient and accommodating. The rooms were clean, well supplied with really nice decor and good heating.

If we come back to Bath we'd definitley stay with them again.

I booked the Premier Apartment for a girls' weekend and all 8 of us absolutely loved this apartment. It's ideally located less than 5 mins walk from town, but tucked away in a really quiet street. All the rooms were decorated to a really high standard with some quirky features. Beds were super comfortable, everything was spotlessly clean and the owners seem to have thought of every facility. Cleaner came in daily to collect towels etc (we sent her away and reused ours but it was nice to be offered!). The outdoor seating area was great and when it got too cold we came inside and played board games (all provided). It wasn't cheap but it was worth it for such a fab location and a brilliant weekend.

Dear Guest, thank you for taking the time to write such a glowing review of your stay with us. You will be glad to hear we have made a number of improvements to the townhouse since you last stayed. We have just put in a spanking new kitchen with all the latest mod cons such as a wine fridge, something really important for a girls weekend away! I hope you consider coming back to Harington's apartments in the very near future. See you Soon, Peter

Great location with arranged parking a few minutes walk away. All of the staff we spoke with were very friendly, helpful and keen to assist. The bedroom was clean, comfortable and quiet for a city centre location. The breakfast was very good, again served with conversation which makes a pleasant change compared to many 'chain' hotels. Would recommend to anyone looking for a break in Bath

Room Tip: Our room was at the back of the hotel not overlooking Queen Street so quieter

Super location. Breakfast was good, freshly cooked eggs were very good. Listed building so no lift and rickety stairs. I was in Room 2 and there was no air conditioning and the street was a little noisy. However there was a little fan/heater in the wardrobe to I was able to use this and open the bathroom window instead for fresh air.

Great location - made easier by the use of Sat Nav to navigate around Bath's one-way system. Very obliging staff, good standard of continental breakfast, essential car parking arranged and 3min walk away. All amenities and shopping literally 2min away.
