“Weekend Break”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 February 2012

For me there were only minor gripes; just little things such as that the hotel is decoratively tired and a little dated, the curtains and bed spread was like something from the 80's! I was hoping for a wow factor to the rooms but our room was very average. Bed was pretty comfy; would of preferred a duvet rather than big old wooly blankets though. It was lovely to have a small table and 2 chairs in the room with a lovely view out of the massive window. It was great to have an en-suite and although the shower was lovely and powerful the shower curtain was useless water spilled all over the floor. I don't know if it is the case all the time, but the Hotel is extremely hot; seems like the central heating is on at full blast at all times, and we couldn't turn it down in our room. Which meant we had a slightly uncomfortable evening and we even slept with the bedroom window open! (in February)
The Hotel is practically at the very top of a hill, which is very steap; I am quite active my self and found the slog back to the hotel from the town quite tiring. The hotel is quite rambling inside; we were on the 3rd floor and once out of the tiny lift there were steps up and down twists and turns etc, which didn't necessarily bother me but a word of caution to anyone with mobility difficulties.
The food was decent, it wasn't always entierly to my taste; but the service and presentation was excellent and there was barely any wait to get our food. All the staff were very friendly and I think for the price we paid (£99 each for 2nights HB) the hotel was excellent value for money and I would definately return, and I would reccomend it.

Room Tip: We had a room at the front of the Hotel, and had a lovely view accross Bath.

I have just had an very enjoyable Shearing 5 day stay at the Lansdown Grove Hotel in Bath . It was great value for money, with pleasant staff, very well presented food and a clean room. The hotel is dated, but had much charm and I would certainly holiday there again. I must mention Phil, our coach driver, who went the extra mile for his passengers and with a smile.

Room Tip: Do not choose a room overlooking the road. It was rather noisy.

As other travellers have said...a very steep hill but close to the centre.Tired decor in corridors but room was clean,quiet,bed was comfortable and blackout curtains also a good idea!
Bath and shower good and plenty of hot water.Dining area for breakfast very pleasant and staff were all polite and friendly.Our room was at the back on the 3rd floor...a bit of a trek maybe for older guests as there are lots of stairs,the lift is tiny and not at all pleasant but does what it is supposed to. Generally an ok hotel and felt it was expensive £159 for a night but it's all down to location,I would stay here again but only if it was cheaper.

Perfick choice for bath city centre, a steep hill is easy to go down but £4 is well spent on a taxi back up haha. The hotel itself is a little tired but a typical shearings break so you get value for the money.plenty of parking and wonderful veiws.Staff friendly, a pleasant stay thank you.

Room Tip: a very busy hotel so upgrade before you go to avoid disappointment

My wife and I stayed four days in Bath and were fortunate to come across this 'Coast & Country' hotel. On the outskirts with a bus stop just 50 yards away, with regular services.
Staff very friendly and efficient. Food good. Room clean and well serviced. This is an older hotel but has been renovated to a good standard. You can see a few blemishes here and there but overall we think they deserve an "excellent" rating - and my wife used to be an Executive Housekeeper in an American owned chain.
Would recommend to other visitors to Bath.

Room Tip: A bit of traffic noise at the front but it didn't worry me.
