“Lovely stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2012

Compact Inn with delightful staff who were very happy to help. Single room was small but spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Lovely fluffy towels.The breakfast was gorgeous, especially the smoked salmon and scarmbled eggs!!!

Central location to all amenities. Enjoyed my stay and would recommend it.

we stayed at the Griffin Inn for just one night after atrip to the theatre. We arrived at lunchtime and ate inn the bar, the food was good and there were two or three good cask ales. The room was a reasonable size for a small pub, clean and comfortable, the bathroom small but nicely tiled in the modern style with a very good shower.
The staff were very friendly and the breakfast was good with plenty of choice. The Griffin was idealy placed for the theatre,very close!! and also in a good position for other Bath attractions, the Roman baths, the Spa etc. We would stay again when visiting bath in the future.

Stayed there last night after wonderful day at thermae spa. Very disappointed at walking through small , very noisey bar up 3 flights stairs, to a small room. View had been described as looking over beauford square, through the broken almost impossible to shut window, you could just catch a glimpse of some grass in the distance. I told member staff I was very dissappointed and she made a quick exit. The bar noise went on til 11pm, then banging doors, creeking stairs and road noise. The bed was two single mattresses together, the fire alarm was hanging off the ceiling. Shower grubby. After no sleep, the breakfast cereals were all in glass jars, no way off knowing useby dates. The staff were scruffily dressed. Very unpleasant stay, and paid well over the odds for shabby surroundings, £129 for the night, outrageous. Dont do it!!!

Room Tip: dont stay there

Dear Angela,

The pub has had a change of management since your visit and I think that you will be pleasantly surprised by the transformation.

The Griffin Inn was a smashing choice for an overnight stay in Bath. The welcome was very friendly, the room spotless and comfortable, the bar food absolutely excellent, and the breakfast very good too.
Not knowing Bath I had not realised Monmouth Street would be as busy as it was trafficwise, but in the event it did not stop us getting a perfectly good night's sleep.
Room Five has a steeply sloping bedroom floor! (not surprising considering this is a Grade 2 listed and very elderly inn) so do beware, especially if you have been sampling the excellent choice of real ales - including a "house" beer brewed locally - downstairs.
We'd definitely return. The menu was new and is clearly going very well, and the commitment to using local, traceable produce is always good to see and support.
