Situation was very convenient for all Bath facilities. Hotel was clean and comfortable and in good condition. Did not like the ease of access for a motor vehicle because of the various one way systems etc although there was free temporary waiting outside.

The hotel is beautiful and the staff are very kind and helpful - however, my partner and I were unlucky to be booked on a first floor room. At first we thought it was fine, as we imagined that the windows MUST be double-glazed and noise cancelling. I mean, this is a 5 star hotel... Nevertheless, we were mistaken and had to spend the night listening to cars/motorcycles/drunks/trash-trucks/etc throughout the night. Please note that the hotel street is not a very busy one, but unfortunately the sound carried really well to the room we were at.
