I was traveling with 23 college students and one other faculty member - we practically took over the entire hotel! The staff was very helpful in setting up our reservations before we arrived and accommodating our large group. Rooms were clean, and the continental breakfast in the morning was delicious! The fact that there is a bar in the basement was another great feature of the establishment.

My husband and I stayed at The Halcyon at the beginning of February 2012. On arrival the staff were superb (Hector and Lauren) and extremely helpful in highlighting places to visit and restaurants and bars. The room was very clean and had everything we needed for a weekend break. The full english breakfast is delicious and the continental buffet is good too! The location is perfect for exploring Bath and there is a taxi rank opposite should you need one which the staff will arrange. There is a large underground car park very nearby if you need to leave a car. Would definitely recommend staying here, great staff, great hotel, thank you for a lovely stay! P.S Hector thanks for sorting out my wife's birthday dinner at Sotto Sotto!

My husband and I stayed at this delightful hotel on February 3rd, and from when we stepped into reception the stay was perfect, Frank on reception kindly took our luggage up to the room while we parked the car. We later met Hector the manager who reconmended a lovely Italian restauarant round the corner called Sotto Sotto and we were not disappointed. The room was perfect, very carefully designed and we did not find it cramped, bed was very comfortable, the design of this hotel has been very well thought out. Breakfast was downstairs in a very comfortable area with arm chairs etc, continental was ample, the cooked breakfast looked of very high standard. We had cocktails in the hotel cocktail bar next door called Circo, sublime cocktails! All the staff are so friendly and Hector must captain a happy ship. As I said to Hector my only complaint was I could find nothing to complain about ! We have been going to Bath for 20 years and it was our best stay.

I thought this hotel was very good value for money when I stayed overnight in Bath. I had no problems with the size of my room and enjoyed the modern style. Very nice bathrooms too. Absolutely spotless. The hotel is centrally located. Wifi is available but only reliable on the ground floor.

Me and my partner stayed at this hotel 2 weeks ago and it made our visit to Bath the best we have ever had. On arriving the reception staff were so helpful - they advised us of the best restaurants and things to do in Bath - there was no need to do this, but they went out of their way. The room was modern, clean and warm - love the funky hot water bottles and mini sweet jars (£2.50). Very central to Bath and check out was easy and quick. All round an amazing hotel.

Firstly we needed an hotel in Bath within walking distance of everything it has to offer but also so that we could look at properties for sale. The Halcyon was perfect - we walked to the Southgate shopping mall nearby (along with all other stores), viewed properties over a four day span and were able walk a few hundred yards to the Bath Station for our eight minute trip to Bradford-on-Avon. We dined literally around the corner at a Nepalese restaurant - highly recommended.Secondly, Hector and his team did everything they could to help. We were laden with luggage so they gave us the ground flooor studio room. You can park the car across the road in the Southgate secure car park at a daily rate of twelve pounds. They took the keys and parked it for us. There are short term parking bays on the street and as it is closed off carrying luggage in and out is no problem.

The service above does not stop at the above!!!! Every offer of assistance is given from recommended sightseeing, attractions, restaurants, where to shop etc. It is a personalised boutique hotel with personalised service. It also houses "Circa" which is the most popular bar in Bath - again stylish and very trendy. The rooms are modern, understated chic and have everything and more to make your stay enjoyable. A "mini kitchen" provides the usual fridge, tea/coffee making facilities etc but there is a sink, microwave, toaster, crockery and cutlery encased in an integrated cupboard. Drinks, confectionary and other nibbles are also available. Wi-fi and Sky TV are part and parcel of these well equipped amenities. Perhaps the best of all was the wonderful shower head with piping hot water followed by "The White Company's" toiletries!!!!!! My only suggestion to Hector as practical criticsm was that it took us a while to find which switches did what in terms of lighting, fans and electrical appliances - I suggested a map might be handy!!

The hotel was originally booked for three nights on a special package rate for this time of year of "3 for the price of 2". We found on arrival that we would need an extra night. There was no problem once again with both this and getting the same rate as the offer.

Finally, when in Bath there is non better than The Halcyon - we highly recommend it in every way and will return!!

Room Tip: We only saw the Studio on the ground floor which suited us for ease and convenience. The Halcyon ha...
