Great Spa hotel right in the centre of Bath. Was so easy to access and walk all over the town. The hotel is very nice. The room was clean and comfortable. The staff were excellent. So friendly and helpful. The room was a bit overpriced by comparison to other places we have stayed. But overall we had a really lovely time.

The location is excellent, right in the middle of the shopping centre. The hotel is very elegant with attractive rooms and public areas Spa is spacious and offers a lovely experience. It would have been helpful to have information in the room concerning room service, restaurant times for lunch or dinner as well as a sample menu and the prices in the mini bar. The options at breakfast could be improved no porridge, kippers/smoked mackerel or dairy free yogurts. The gluten free toast was small, dry and only one slice was provided despite asking for two slices! The regular toast arrived in a toast rack and was plentiful.

Good: The hotel is ideally located in the centre of Bath so you never have far to walk and do not need a car. Spa is very nice and quiet (see negative later) and an relaxing way to end a day. Bad: We had a room on the fourth floor which was quite small and had restricted headroom because of the sloping roof. Room was very warm even with air con. Main negative was the rules regarding Spa use. We stayed 12 months ago and was able to book an hour in the spa anytime and when we booked in October this year there was no mention of any restrictions. This was because the policy was changed on 1st November to state that 'cpmplementary' access to spa was only from 8-10 in the morning and 7-9 in the evening, neither of which is suitable for a hotel guest wanting to explore Bath during the day and eat out afterwards. The staggering thing is that outside of these hours they were going to charge £70 each to go. Good: When we expressed our dissappointment with the change of policy after we had booked the hotel allowed us a complementary hous each day of our stay at a time suitable to us. Unsurprisingly, at that price, we were the only people in the spa at that time as I am sure no hotel guest is going to pay that amount for an hours swim. Maybe ther hotel needs to reconsider this new policy as unless it changes, I will not be booking there again.

Spa was lovely, room was a bit 'run down' and could have been more modern, e.g. access to smart TV.

Ladies weekend away, great location for shops and bars. The hotel was well presented, friendly and we received first rate service at all times. I would highly recommend the hotel to people looking for a little break, we never ate in the hotel and preferred to eat in town.
