Just returned from 2 nights at the Royal Hotel Bath. Perfectly placed for sightseeing and car parking was available at a small charge. All the staff were lovely and went out of their way to make our stay perfect. Food was really good and, although the decor in bedroom was a little tired it was spotlessly clean and all the...

We booked through TripAdvisor and could not believe the value we had for the amount we paid. Above and beyond that we were treated with courtesy by all members of staff who were very friendly. Our room was just as you should expect for a hotel of this age. It was clean and comfortable with some very nice touches which...

This is in a great location situated right opposite bath spa railway station and right in the city. Lovely building as you'd expect from Brunel design. I was in room 206 which is very spacious and clean but the secondary glazing on the windows seem very ineffective as the traffic noise is very apparent. I'm a very heavy sleeper but...

Thank you for your review following your stay at The Royal. I was delighted to read of your appreciation of our lovely character hotel but was disappointed to note your comments regarding our secondary glazing. The Royal is a Grade II listed building and, as such, we are not allowed to replace the large sash windows with sealed double glazed...

My friends and I booked two rooms last weekend to celebrate my 60th birthday. Nothing was too much trouble and we were not disappointed with the travel zoo deal. Bath is an ideal location for a weekend with friends and we enjoyed exploring the city and returning to our comfortable room and delicious food in the restaurant. It was a...

My friend and I stayed at the Royal Hotel last night, in room 104. The only complaint was during the early hours of this morning, there was heavy banging from what may have been a delivery outside, vibrated through the room causing me to wake up. However I cannot blame the hotel for this, but it was worth mentioning the...

We stayed here on a Living Social Deal which was fantastic value for room, cream tea, glass of champagne, dinner and full English breakfast. The room (303) was quiet and comfortable with a generous hospitality tray. Room was smallish but everything we needed was there and the shower was good. Choice and quality of food for both dinner and breakfast...

I've been here many times when meeting friends or waiting for our trains home. It's ideally located but expensive. There's nothing special about the bar but the staff are always very pleasant and helpful. I'll use it again if in Bath with friends
