    Very good

    nice decor, comfortable rooms, quality of food was good, clean hotel

    I found the quality of spa treatment a bit disappointing. friendliness of staff was variable, some excellent, some less so (staff always polite but some appeared abrupt or to lack sincerity in their comments)

    Superb

    The friendliness of all the staff but not in your face, Remembering your name and also extremly helpful from the moment we arrived and the offer to take the car and park it and also offering to take the cases etc inside. Excellent meal in restaurant. Highly recommended

    Good

    Good spa and basic sport facilities, not monitored. Room are a bit run down. Service is OK but not best in class. The hotel tried to charge me 1 £ for a charity I do not know and 20 £ for a bill of another room and that was waived on the end.

    The sport facility is basic with few machines. It might be worth to consider how to improve that. The spa is good but water is not from bath which is a bit of disappointment...

    The hotel looks stunning and has beautiful grounds. Its within walsking distance from the city centre but is set up on the quiet hills ensuring a restful and peaceful nights sleep. The staff are always friendly, welcoming and very keen to help. Nothing seems to be too much hassle and they did not judge us coming back from our cross-country race covered in mud! The spa is open until 9.30pm meaning you can swim in a heated spa pool under the stars (to be highly recommended!). The bedrooms are luxuriant and very comfortable, although the views arent great. The bathrooms are very spacious and indulgent with underfloor heating.

    Fabulous

    Friendly helpful staff. Close to city centre. Good spa facilities.

    First night we stayed it was very noisy around our room and we did not sleep well. We requested to be moved the following day and the room we were movedcto was much better. My husband and I both had spa treatments. The lady treating him was really nice whereas the lady treating me barely said anything to me (although the treatment itself was nice).

    Fabulous

    Lovely hotel, professional, cordial, and helpful staff, beautiful to wake up in the morning and go for a walk or just to the spa. We got upgraded and the rooms were simply fantastic.

    Rates of the Restaurant and dining services were pricey even when compared to other international 5 star hotel chains.

    Very good

    i thought that Bath itself was very good and very clean lots of things to do and see.There are some lovely walks and some smashing scenery, There was a lot of good places to eat and visit.

    The hotel was very good but did not like getting woken up by the house keeping staff at 8.30. I thought breakfast could have been included for the price we had paid for the room ??.
