Enjoyable stay especially because of the staff


Member Rating 4 out of 5 by artslover on October 13, 2010

The downside to this hotel are the small rooms. We had a deluxe double but there was not a lot of floor space. The rooms vary but ours had a rack with hangers in the corner, no closet and no drawers, a small desk and stool, and a shelf with coffee and tea making supplies as well as jars of sweets (which were an additional charge). The bathroom was also small; ours had only a shower with a rainhead shower which we enjoyed along with the generous supply of shampoo and shower gel and the big fluffy towels on a heated towel rack.

On the upside, the room was clean and the bed comfortable and we were able to open the windows and enjoy some fresh air.

The hotel does not provide internet connection in the rooms but offers free wi-fi in the breakfast room/bar area. Luckily our room was above the bar so we were able to get wi-fi in the room and also when sitting outside on the patio.

The included continental breakfast was good and served in the area by the reception which becomes a bar in the evening. When the weather is pleasant, both breakfast and the bar can be enjoyed on the patio in front of the hotel.

The location was excellent -- only blocks from the train station, Bath Abbey, the Roman Baths, Thermae Spa and the Theatre Royal.

Best of all was the staff, who were very friendly and helpful.
