On arrival we had a parking space we had pre-booked and paid for, this worked well for us. The hotel was a beautiful building perched at the top of a steep hill. The room we were booked into was a standard and quite pokey and dark so we decided to upgrade to another room which was lighter and airier. The...

Thank you for your review, hawkeye9. I am pleased to see from your title that you found the city of Bath to your liking. I am sorry about the issues you encountered during your visit.

I suppose the best thing that can be said about the Lansdown Grove Hotel is that it is a typical Shearings Hotel. The place is clean, the staff helpful and the food that we had was all edible (no, sorry the poached eggs weren’t; don’t know what they had done to them but had a very odd flavour) But, it...

Thank you, Rutland-Baker for your feedback . I am of course happy to read that you found the hotel clean and staff friendly. I am however sorry that all other aspects of your stay were not enjoyable.

Stayed here for a weekend bank holiday break, it's worth mentioning that this hotel is near the top of a steep hill and has 3 car parks. If you don't book the car parking I have no idea where you would park. We like to leave the car at the hotel and walk and this was okay down into the...

Dear TamworthHolly. Thank you for your post. I am happy to see that you enjoyed your stay. As mentioned, we are built into the hill of Lansdown Road, as such the hotel does have a number of rooms and corridors layered throughout the hill. I am glad that you enjoyed the layout of the hotel and that it added to...

I can't give this hotel 4 circles as it wasn't 'very good', but it was better than average. The hotel was nice, obviously steeped in history and you feel that walking through the long corridors. The staff were professional but some weren't particularly friendly. The room was nice. It had basic facilities but I don't doubt that staff would have...

We got very lucky here I think! 2 adjoining rooms with an open balcony running along outside, with two sets of double doors leading onto it, fabulous views from the balcony and parking in the rear car park for only £5 per day which seems very good value. The hotel is a bit of a rabbit warren but that's not...

I had a lovely time in Bath. The hotel was clean and comfortable with helpful friendly staff.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Lansdown Grove Hotel, Bath is part of the architectural history of Bath and one of the oldest hotels in the city, dating back as far as 1770. Bath itself has been designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, and contains some of the finest architectural sites in Europe, most within walking distance of the hotel. The hotel is a stone built, grade 2 listed mansion, typical of the period, described in The Times of Friday 13th July 1860 as "one of the most delightful houses in Bath." The Hotel is in a magnificent location, just 15 minutes walk from the historic town centre. The hotel enjoys delightful views over the Georgian part of Bath and wooded hills beyond. The interior boasts high ceilings and elegant plaster work, with 56 bedrooms over 3 floors. ... more   less
