“Great hotel with character”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2014

Very cosy, newly renovated and stylish in an old building with lots of character. Loved being right in the heart of the city but on a quiet street. The hot tub experience was amazing. Would definitely go back.

Dear Guest. We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay, especially our hot tub. It seems to be really popular this time of year. People are de-stressing into the new year!! Being in a grade II listed building does mean we have retained as many of the original features of the houses as possible. Great to hear people appreciate the history of the building. Many Thanks Peter.

Warm welcome from lovely receptionist who promptly showed us to our cosy room,nicely decorated, comfy bed, very attentive staff,breakfast was ok, could have done with a little bit more choice for the continental and the toast and coffee took a little while. Only two little things I would say is be aware it can be noisy at nighttime as there is a pub and bar right outside and I really wish the heating had been on at night we we're freezing ! However I would definitely go again as it was a great base for sightseeing in Bath also loads of really nice restaurants, cafe's and shops nearby and the hotel was gorgeous,just wish we'd had time to try the hot tub !

Dear Guest, Thank you very much for your feedback on your recent stay. I'm please to see you enjoyed your weekend break with us at Harington's. You mention you had our continental breakfast and would have liked more variety. I will take your comments on board as we are constantly trying to improve our offering. I would like to mention to anyone looking to book with us always book direct with the hotel and this insures you get our complimentary Full English Breakfast and lots more like scrambled eggs and smoked salmon. We also guarantee to have the best available rate when booking direct. We have just added our automatic juicing machine in the last few weeks, giving our guests freshly squeezed orange juice each morning. I hope you noticed it?

I will look at our heating times, normally we do turn the heat off for a few hours during the night as we find the hotel can get too hot and stuffy. each room has a back up heater in the wardrobe, along with extra blankets. I apologise if you found it cold at night.

Next time you come back don't forget your bathing costumes and you can have a go in the outdoor hot tub, I promise you will love it! Hope to see you back soon, Peter.

My daughter and I recently spent two nights at Harington's. We found all the staff to be friendly and accommodating. Our room was great, containing everything we needed during our stay. Beds were very comfortable! Breakfasts were excellent, served in a lovely dining area. When we next visit Bath, we will certainly be booking in again.

Dear Guest, I'm pleased to see that you enjoyed your recent stay with us. We use Hypnos beds in our bedrooms and we get a lot of positive feedback about them from our guests. After all we are in the sleep business so we try and source the best products available for our customers. This follows through to our breakfast where we source nearly all of our products from local farms. Many Thanks and we hope to see you again in the not too distant future.

We stayed at the Harington's Hotel on Saturday, it was in a word Wonderful! The staff were extremely accommodating and friendly. All our needs were taken care of without fuss. The hot tub experience is an added bonus of the hotel, made it feel really special. The hotel itself is in a fantastic location for exploring the sights on foot, with plenty of amenities close by. Clean and well cared for, good breakfast, interesting décor in the room. The only thing that could have made it better was a slightly later check out, for us 11am felt a little early. But will definitely stay again.

Room Tip: We had a queen room, I think it was worth the extra money.

Dear Guest, thanks for you kind comments. Many of our guests take advantage of our outdoor hot tub. Even in this weather it can be a great experience to sit in water at 38C and relax with a nice glass of bubbly. We will always try to accommodate a late check out if is possible, so it is always worth asking if you would prefer a later check out time. We hope to welcome you back again soon.

Lovely stay at Bath which was a surprise for my boyfriends birthday ,booked through the internet 1st night and booked 2nd night at the hotel to extend our stay.Lovely place and staff friendly and very helpful.Hotel centrally located, near shops, Roman baths and thermae spa, which we visited.Would love to go back as a had a great time.

Check out deals for the attractions as we booked on arrival but there are offers at visitbath.

Bath has a one way system and not all the sat navs direct you to the hotel,so definitely worth checking out route on aa route for in town route. This happened to us however, a male on reception was fantastic at directing us around.

Room Tip: Superior room was lovely,higher floor nicer then 1st floor as quieter

Dear Guest, thank you for your kind words and we are delighted you had such a great stay with us at Harington's. You give wise advise regarding sat navs, not all can be trusted to bring you directly to the hotel. It is wise to have a printed back up which can be found on the location page of our website. This will give you step by step instructions on reaching us from which ever direction you are approaching Bath. Our brilliant central location means once you have parked your car you can walk everywhere to enjoy the pleasures of Bath. We hope to see you again soon.

Staff were friendly and there was generally a good feeling about the hotel. Harington's is brilliantly located, very central and less than 5 minutes walk to most of Bath's sights. We enjoyed the breakfast options.
