Very attentive staff and good local produce for breakfast. The room was clean and serviced during our stay. Steep stairs might pose a problem for some guests. Location very central and fan supplied which was necessary as it was quite a humid night.

Myself and my partern always come in this pub for a treat. It has never failed to impress us. Staff are very welcoming. Lovely land lady who you can have a good old laugh with. The homemade slow gin is to die for. Great place for families and the odd drink after work. I recommend this place to any one...

Great place to stay in a quiet location right in the heart of the city. The staff were really friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The Inn has loads of character, my room was very clean and modern with its own private bathroom, morning breakfast delicious.

The Inn is in the perfect location for an overnight stay in Bath, just around the corner from the Theater Royal. The staff are all friendly and welcoming, and some of the locals are pretty entertaining too! The food was great, and they keep a selection of very well kept cask ales. The pub is quiet, and does not disturb...

Lovely hotel! 5mins from centre of Bath. Lovely old rooms with plenty of character. Simple but clean rooms. Awesome breakfast. Within walking distance of all the main attractions. Parking is a 5minute walk away at a very reasonableprice. Would definately stay again.

Cosy little inn in Bath that didn't disappoint! The welcome was super friendly. Room was as described and as per photos. It was warm - we stayed in April and it was very cold out. Quiet even though ours was right above the bar. Were offered a welcomed drink. Didn't have dinner here but had the full breakfast the next...

Had a quick fleeting visit in Bath this weekend and spent a night at the Griffin Inn. What lovely staff, and friendly atmosphere. Everything you need for a 1 or 2 night stay in such a beautiful city. A little noisy at night, but lets be honest that's to be expected from such a 'busy' city and is out of...

The staff were very welcoming, and the inn had a nice, quirky atmosphere. The room was a good size for a couple and it was quiet and tidy.

Lovely interior, friendly feel, charming with great ales on tap and a decent glass of wine. Located in the city centre. This is just the sort of place we love and seek out when away from Cambridge. Highly recommend.
