Beautiful construction, decor and grounds. Great to have car parking but close enclose to walk into city centre. Far enough away from the city to be peaceful and quiet.

Overall, we really enjoyed our stay at the Macdonald Bath Spa hotel. The ground were beautifully maintained, full of amazing trees and shrubs, with ornate statues and a small pond. The hotel decor is old-fashioned but luxurious. Our room was clean and spacious. The staff were polite, helpful and chatty. Food was tasty and well prepared. There were a few obvious downsides though. Parking costs £15, which seems excessive, when there were plenty of free spaces in the car park. The wi-fi connection in our room was very poor, with the connection constantly dropping out, and every time you logged in again you were prompted for login details. The bath was a little dirty and rusty around the inside/handles. Also, the bar was closed (with no reason given by the bar staff), which meant that there was nowhere atmospheric to have a drink, apart from the main dining room. Overall, we really liked the hotel, but there are some obvious areas for improvement.

The room was ok. The restaurant Vellore and staff were excellent. There were two issues that make us feel the hotel needs improvement. 1. The fire alarm kept sounding on the Saturday which interrupted my wifes spa treatment - no apology from MacDonald Hotel staff or explanation. A little courtesy you'd expect as a minimum. Also unsettling for my 11 year old son as he thought was a real emergency. 2. We needed some information on Saturday afternoon circa 5pm we constantly rang concierge & reception from room for over 10 minutes no response. Id suggest understaffed. Curious to see if the Management agree.

Following the relaxing of COVID 19 restrictions we were undoubtedly similar to a lot of people, keen to escape and experience a small piece of luxury at a five star hotel. We chose the Macdonald Bath Spa hotel, booking two rooms, a double and a twin. We expected the spa to be closed, but were looking forward to dining at the hotel. Upon arrival the receptionist informed us they were not aware of our room requirements, however, kind attempts were made to overcome the issue. We settled for two twin rooms in order to be close to the children. The double room was literally the other side of the hotel. We called the hotel whilst in Bath in order to reserve a table for dinner. We were informed that the restaurant was open, and that it was busy, however, they booked us in at 7pm. It was whilst attempting to dine, that we truly became aware of the ‘basic’ state of the hotel, and at how unprepared they were to cater for their guests. The restaurant is in fact closed. Guests are not informed about this. You are ‘expected’ to eat outside, in the lounge on a couple of small side tables or low coffee tables!! The food took forever to arrive and when it did the bare table had not even been laid. My complaint resulted in us being offered a large side table off a corridor! Our ‘escape’ to experience a small taste of luxury had been ruined by what appears to be ‘a grab the money and run business’. I would advise you to not stay at the hotel at this stage.
