Attended as a wedding guest last weekend. Room was clean and bed was amazingly comfortable. I think £90 for room only was a bit expensive for what we got. The only downside was the room was VERY hot and there were no blackout curtains so we woke up at 6am as soon as the sun came up!
We stayed on the 18 July for one night , 2 rooms. It was the night before my daughters graduation from Bath Spa University. We stayed so as to have time in the morning to get ready, stress free, and get to Bath early to do all we had to do in preparation for the graduation. Come the morning when I went to have a shower, there was no water, I went to my daughters room, and she had no water either. I went to reception to be told there was a burst pipe somewhere outside, and Wessex water were dealing with it and it was out of their hands. There was no apology, no concern, and I was later told by someone I should have demanded a refund, but at the time I had more important things on my mind, otherwise I would have demanded a refund. It marred our day, my wife and daughter could not wash there hair, or shower, and it was such an important day for us. Bitterly disappointed with them.
We stayed here 13th & 14th July for a friends wedding. Beautiful location, family room plenty big enough, clean, tidy, breakfast was good (not a massive variety of cereal for kids) restaurant food delicious. Would definitely recommend this hotel for a wedding or a few days away.
I stayed for 2 nights with 2 girl friends whilst visiting Bath. We booked in for bed and breakfast, which was extremely competitively priced in comparison to other hotels in the area. We shared a room, which although compact, was perfect for our needs. The view down the valley was beautiful, you do hear the trains going past, but they didn't disturb us unduly. The beds were comfortable, the room & en-suite were spotlessly clean, with large, good quality towels. All of the staff were helpful and friendly, however Sebastian the barman really added to the experience. His humour and banter was entertaining, but always at a professional level. We ate in the restaurant on one evening and the food was delicious and well priced. Food at breakfast was plentiful and of a good quality, again the waiting staff were friendly and attentive. The only negative was the water pressure from the shower and the fact that the temperature of the water fluctuated from very cold to very hot indeed. This was reported to reception and we were told that it would be investigated. The hotel is a typical country house style, which we really liked and it is set in a beautiful location. A taxi into Bath cost between £12 & £14 and took about 15 minutes into the centre. We all enjoyed our stay and I would definitely return if in the area.
My wife and I stayed at this pleasant hotel outside of Bath. It is approx 15-20 mins drive into Bath, but a lot cheaper than similar hotels in the city. It's a nice hotel but a bit old. The room was comfortable but really need aircon. The staff were fine and the breakfast outstanding.
Was here on coach holiday with friend. Staff were very friendly and food was good. Room was adequate, with large window which we were able to open wide. Bathroom was little on the small side with small step in middle, which we kept forgetting was there, oops. Overall we had a good 5 days and would visit again but not in that room.
We stayed here back in February and enjoyed our overnight stay. the only real problem we encountered during our stay was actually on check in and it was with a staff member who appeared to be quite rude and a little abrupt which did annoy us somewhat at the time, but we did speak to this staff member again during our stay and have to say that she was lovely the next few times we spoke with her. Our room was on the first floor and although quite small, it was very comfortable and did have everything we needed for an overnight stay with all of the usual hotel room facilities available. There is a bar and restaurant on site and we did have a drink here but did not dine. The drinks were very reasonably priced though and there was a large selection available. At the bottom of the hill on the approach to the hotel there is a local pub which we dined in and found the food to be very nice and very reasonably priced. The hotel is in a beautiful location overlooking the hills and river and is within easy reach of Bath and all of it's sights and attractions so it makes an excellent base when looking to explore the city but not actually stay within it. All in all we had a pleasant stay here and would stay here again if we were in the area.
The building is beautiful, but inside everything is old and creeky. I didn't mind that until I saw how small our room was. Still, I could live with it until I turned on the shower. Good pressure at the spigot, abysmal pressure at the shower head. When I'm paying US$100/night, I don't want a shower that takes longer to rinse off than it does to bathe. If my wife, with her full head of thick hair, had shampooed that morning, we would still be there trying to get the soap out.
Stayed here with a couple of colleagues and all are in the same agreement this place is set in a beautiful location....but the place could do with a huge overhaul, my room the windows were painted shut so the room was extremely hot. Shower was awful no pressure what so ever and the room was very drab and dated. Check in we were met by a women who thought she was some sort of a comedian! Just a bad experience all round. Some staff couldn't even manage a hello! The only one I came across that was just lovely was an older lady who served us at breakfast and she couldn't do enough for us. Ate twice in the restaurant as there is only one pub in walking distance, my food was OK ish, not the best I've had but ok! My colleague had mussels one night and the chef sent the dish out with no sauce on, the waiter returned the dish and 2 minuets later it was back with what can only be described as dishwasher water! I actually tried it as I couldn't believe how much he was moaning....every right too it was horrid. Check out was smooth, no problems. When ordering drinks / food against your room they do not ask for a signature and we're proper rude when we requested to sign our bills (company paid) Location is at the bottom of a very steep drive (sat nav access) so go steady although there is another way to access the hotel worth checking Google Maps prior to travelling. Would we stay again....No! There is another Best Westen about 20 minuets away where we normally stay which is so much better than Limpley, and the staff are great there.
Lovely room. The building is very old and the floor in the room was a little uneven, but it had character. Breakfast (buffet) was very good and food nice and hot. The local area is very pretty and there are good views from the hotel gardens, and there were from our room.
