Great central location

The only drawback to this gorgeous hotel was the size of the rooms. They are quite small, fine if you will be in them for mainly sleeping but ceilings quite low for myself at five foot seven and even worse for my brother at over 6 foot. Interior decoration of both the hotel and the rooms is gorgeous. Clean comfortable and central to everything in Bath, staff were nice enough. Bath itself is an amazing place to stay!

Dear Tamara Thank you for your review; I am pleased you have enjoyed your stay in Bath. All our rooms do vary greatly in size, shape and décor. It sounds as though you had a room on the 3rd floor where the ceilings are slightly lower than on the floors below. It is a shame you didn’t ask to see if there were any other room that you could have looked at to see if there was one you would have been more comfortable in. I do hope we see you both again in the future. Kind regards Peter Bartlett – Interim General Manager
