“Simply delightful!”
Reviewed 16 September 2013

We were in Bath for 3 nights and had the pleasure of staying at this wonderful little tucked away hotel. Our room was quite lovely with a beautiful view of the hillside. We woke up one morning to a hot air balloon just over the horizon as I made a cup of English tea! The room was very spacious with the most well designed bathroom! You had the feel of being in an old manor but with all of today's modern comforts. The staff was extremely helpful and very attentive to all of our needs offering suggestions for restaurants, tour groups, attractions and must sees. While it was a little bit of a hike to get into town, after an incredible English breakfast prepared by Raphael, the exercise was welcome! Very elegant, white tablecloth setting overlooking the garden in the back. The service at breakfast was impeccable and the food was 5 star! A fantastic start to a day of touring Bath! The other thing I loved was the quiet! After being in London for 5 days, it was wonderful having our window open at night with fresh air and quiet! My best to the owners Raphael and Gillie! You have quite a gem in such a lovely city!

The reviews about this hotel are all true. I stayed here for 3 nights with my boyfriend for a weekend away. It is a beautiful house with amazing views and a very pretty garden. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Lovely breakfast with a different cooked special on the menu every morning on top of the regular choices. Fresh fruit, greek yoghurt, granola and cereals, full english and vegetarian options. So much choice. Couldn't fault this hotel at all. Would definitely stay here again.

Had a wonderful couple of nights in Bath, everyone at the Apsley House Hotel could not have been any more helpful. Breakfasts and the room were great. Would recommend a stay here, although a little way from town it was a really nice walk into town we did 7 times in 2 days.

Stayed for 3 nights towards end of August. Although the hotel appeared to be full the service at breakfast was quietly efficient and friendly. Our bedroom (the Romantic Room) was extremely quiet and of a good size with plenty of storage space. The furnishings were of a high quality and the room was very welcoming with a pleasant view over the garden and beyond. The bathroom toiletries were a cut above the usual.
Although a little way from the town, we had no problem getting to the centre as there is a bus stop opposite. Taxis are plentiful and reasonably priced.
The staff were very accommodating and extremely helpful.
The Apsley House Hotel is an oasis of calm and comfort. We have nothing negative to say about it.

Yes, the reviews are very true. It is a truly glorious place to stay. I have dietary requirements that were wonderfully catered for by the lovely staff and they really make you feel that nothing is too big a chore for them. The decor is beautiful, most of the rooms have freestanding baths and four poster beds which was such a luxurious treat! I'm 5' 5" and I couldn't reach the top and the bottom of the bed at the same time! I thoroughly recommend this lovely hotel - find an excuse to go and stay there!

I booked a room as a present for a 21st birthday and couldn't have been happier. The staff were really helpful when I needed to amend my booking and delightful when we arrived to spend the night there. It was our first time in Bath and they helped with maps, recommendations and a discount in some of the town's independent restaurants, shops and bars. Really charming with helping us with our bags to our room - The Beau Room off the garden, I couldn't recommend it more, very romantic and secluded. One of the best things about the stay was the bath - cast iron, vintage restored and enormous! Easily big enough for two and in a beautiful en-suite. The four-poster bed was also stunning - only downside was the mattress was a little hard but the surplus of pillows and duvet made up for it. The breakfast was lovely - we had the special, eggs royale, and a veggie full-english. There were gluten-free offerings available too and the tea and coffee were lovely. Looking around the other guests really varied; from couples to families, old and young. Definitely worth a revisit as the price was very reasonable for such a beautiful stay and we didn't get the chance to enjoy the honesty bar or grand piano in the evening - next time!

Room Tip: The Beau Room off the garden is great for a couple, couldn't recommend it more.

For my wife's 50th anniversary I booked the Coachhouse for the two of us plus our 15 yr old son.
We had a truely great time and enjoyed the very kind hospitality of the staff.

Location is perfect for visiting both the city of Bath (walk, bus or taxi) or the wonderful surroundimgs.

Apsley House is a gem offering everything a visitor of Bath is looking for a fair prices.
If you visit Bath and look for a place to stay, Apsley House is indeed the no. 1 place to go as indicated by the Tripadvisor ratings...
