Visited on a Friday for the Christmas Market. Excellent location near the market, shops and train station. Room not massive and decor an older style. Sheets clean and water hot in shower (shower only not a bath and cubical a little small) Breakfast tasty and plenty of staff to assist. Bar was busy but did not use it.

Stayed here on a Twixmas break. Lovely hotel with friendly helpful staff. Wonderful position for exploring Bath. Some road noise inevitable. Would stay again, but would request 1st floor room with bath next time. The lift is very small, not good for claustrophobic guests ! Nice restaurant with a good choice of food and very pleasant staff. Welcoming bar area....

What a great location, especially if you're coming by train - it's bang across the road from the station and so close to all the tourist stuff going on in Bath. Anyway!

Many thanks for your lovely review and in particular for your many complimentary remarks regarding your stay. I am sorry that it would appear that the scones on this occasion were a little dry and I can only assume that having been warmed, which is what we like to do they became a little dry in the process. Thankfully this...

This hotel is not the nicest from the outside, however when you are in there you are greeted by really friendly staff and made welcome. The room was adequate for what we wanted.
