Set in a great location very close to the center of Bath. The grounds and the hotel look beautiful on the exterior, rooms on the inside are slightly dated and I would not say the service is 5*. In fact it was very hit and miss at times. The receptionist seemed very overwhelmed and overstretched. The spa was unfortunately fully...

This is a really nice hotel, with good service, a lovely location and good food. When we were thinking of booking, I was nearly put off by the bad/mediocre reviews but you shouldn't be. I have given it 5 stars to balance those out... Most of the reviews are accurate, the service was mostly very good but at times could...

Lovely hotel but slightly disappointing service on arrival. Twice given the wrong room, particularly frustrating when the problem was replicated after first complaint. Spa and food was excellent and the bed was extremely comfortable.

Two of us stayed for a "We time" package, and were very pleased with the location of the hotel, the welcome that we received and the high quality of the ground floor room that we were given. The spa facilities were lovely, and provided a welcome respite. Our booking included dinner, and we were glad that we made a reservation...

We booked for my partner's 50th. We were very excited at the prospect of our Executive Suite with our mirror televisions, private butler, evening canapés and champagne. Unfortunately the hotel made an error with our booking which they didn't tell us and we were shown to an Imperial Suite. We didn't realise the error immediately as we went out straightaway...

This was a lovely relaxing retreat for our wedding anniversary. It's in a quiet location surrounded by beautiful gardens and about 10 minutes walk from the city centre, fine going downhill but a bit of a mission going uphill on the way back! My wife still hasn't forgiven me for not getting a taxi! The spa had everything you would...

I really wouldnt class this as a spa hotel! Tiny spa area, especially for the amouht of people using it. Definitely needs a refurb too! Reception staff, once you could understand them, miserable and unhelpful. Food and bar prices way too expensive. Will not be returning here!!

My family are from the Bath area so I know the place well but this trip was very last minute and the first time we'd stayed at the Bath Spa. It's an amazing building from the outside but - for a hotel at this level - a bit tired and frayed around the edges inside. It could be fantastic but...

Early in March 2017 my party had two rooms with breakfast on a deal that allowed us to have a 3-course dinner for £35 per head (normal price £45). The rooms were very comfortable and had about the best bathrooms one could imagine. Porter service and valet parking were good. All the staff were welcoming and helpful. There were three...
