Stayed here for one night as partner had an early meeting in town. Very comfortable if quite small room. Excellent location for the city centre. Lovely decor and breakfast room was beautiful. They managed to arrange for an early breakfast for us which was appreciated. Quite pricey but everywhere in Bath is at weekends.
