Not much to say about this place other than what a terrible experience. My wife and I went for a relaxing spa break in a 5 star hotel expecting it to to be just that.. It wasn’t. The dining room staff were terrible, the food was pretty bland and cold, the breakfast was tiny, the hotel was pretty tired, the...

Went in a group. Very impressive looking hotel. Nice bar. Big impressive looking restaurant. Good service. But no atmosphere, very average food, that didn't live up to the claims on the menu. Soup nice but nothing special. Steak was cold. Way overpriced.

I booked this hotel at the last minute after my reservation with another spa hotel fell through. It was a great twist of fate as the hotel was excellent. The room was comfortable, the staff were lovely, the spa facilities were fantastic, the food was to a high standard and the full body massage was the cherry on top. It's...

Pros: We love the place.Spacious William Pitt room. Close to the historic Roman Bath. Food was good. We forgot the name of our butler but his very good. Indoor warm pool is fantastic especially during winter. Staff very friendly. Cons: Slow food service. But overall we enjoyed our stay.

After a previous bad stay at a different Macdonald hotel I was unsure what to expect here, but I was very pleasantly surprised. The hotel had lovely views, very friendly staff, great food, nice large room that looked recently refurbished and we had a huge bath. Spa was lovely including the nice heated outdoor pool/jacuzzi. Only 2 things stopped me...
