Reviewed 25 April 2014

Great location, friendly helpful staff and very comfortable.
Good breakfast, and cosy rooms.
Small amount of noise from the pub opposite at closing, but got expect that anywhere in a city centre. In a quiet side street so definitely quiter than some areas would be.
Nice little outdoor Jacuzzi patio for private booking.

Room Tip: Top floor double rooms are very cosy! Go for King size if you can.

Thank you for your very positive review of your stay. I am glad that you found everything to your liking as well as finding the staff to be helpful.

We have recently installed secondary glazing to all rooms at the front of the hotel, to eliminate street noise. The street is generally quiet due to us being on a small side street.

The hot tub has proved very popular since being installed and can be booked for an hour privately for £7.50 per person,

I do hope we have the pleasure of welcoming you again soon.

Kind Regards

Julian

If you are looking for a quality low key place to stay where you can be in the centre of the action and all Bath has to offer, this is for you. Rooms are comfortable and breakfast excellent. Used the hotel preferred parking arrangements and walked everywhere till we left. There was a comment about a spiral staircase but this goes down from the bar to the lavatory not to the rooms so not an issue. Stairs are narrow so if infirm request a room on a low floor, you can't get away from this being an original Georgian property with associated charm.

Me and my friend decided to go to Bath for Easter very last minute. We checked out the accommodation options and we chose Harington's Hotel and booked one of their apartments. It was the perfect choice for a cozy, clean and super well located place, walking distance to most of the local attractions. Go for it!

Room Tip: make sure you know how to use the thermostat before going to bed.

Thank you fro your positive review of your stay in our City Pad apartment. I am extremely glad that you had an enjoyable stay with us and found everything to your liking.

I am sorry you were not told how to use the heating, usually all aspects of the apartment are explained on check in. I am sorry this was not done in your case.

We are lucky with the hotel and apartment location, being right in the heart of Bath. I do hope we have the pleasure of welcoming you again soon.

Kind Regards

Thank you for your very kind review. I am extremely glad that you had an enjoyable stay with us. Room 14 is a quirky room and very popular with guests, I am happy that you found it to your liking.

The Hot tub has proved very popular since we installed it. We charge £7.50 per person for an hour, this does include bottled water, and use of robes and slippers.

I am happy that you found all the staff to be welcoming and knowledgeable, and do hope we have the pleasure of welcoming you again soon.

Kind Regards

Staff are very friendly, we were upgraded and had the room right next to reception which was lovely, like a little flat - with a Nespresso machine! Staff were very knowledgeable when we asked if there was a pub with Sky (football) We didnt have breakfast as we wanted to explore Bath. The only downside is that they charge to use their hot tub. It is very sweet, small space but very private.

Dear Guest, delighted to read your positive review on your stay with us at Harington's. Glad you found your room interesting. All or rooms are very different, we are different from the norm and that is something we are very proud of. We do charge £7.50 per person for the hot tub, this is to cover the extra's that we supply such as the slippers, robes, extra towels and sparkling water. It also gives you exclusive use of the hot tub, so you do not have to share with anyone else. You relax and talk to your hearts content!

I hope next time you visit our beautiful city you will stay with us again. Many Thanks Peter

It's a cosy hotel with a family type but professional staff. Nice loocation and a nice breakfast. Need to be taken into consideration that it has no lift and that there are some rooms located on the 3rd floor.

Dear Reviewer. Thank you for your review. Glad to see you had a happy and pleasant stay with us recently. As you mention we do not have a lift as we are a listed building in the centre of Bath. This means the building is protected by law and cannot be altered without permission as it is recognised to have significant historical significance. The building does date back to the 1700's .
So you do bring up a good point if anyone does have problems with going up stairs please book a room on the first floor (probably best to call us to explain your situation so as we can suggest the best options for you). We like to talk so give us a call if you have any special requirements. Many thanks and we hope to see you again soon.Peter

Great location - nice staff, clean and tidy, stayed in April. If I am going to rate the Bed 1st, slightly too soft for me = restless nights sleep. But Breakfast was good, I rate the freshly squeezed orange juice from the machine. Would recommend the Wild Cafe next door, nothing like seeing your flamed grilled steak cooking while you wait.
