The Old Mill Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This hotel pops up time and again on various websites as being really cheap - especialy compared to all other Bath hotel prices - so what's the catch? Well to be fair, their isn't one! This place is really good value. On the plus side if you get a river view room, you have a terrific view, Parking is free and plentiful breakfasts are great value and the staff are really pleasant and welcoming. There are some great wlaks nearby and a couple of ok 'gastro-pubs' in walking distance.finally you can avoid all the parking hassle you get in Bath by catching the bus straight into the city frm 100yards up the road. If your a little more ambitious y there is a really pleasant canal-side walk which gets you into the heart of bath in less than an hour. of course there are downsides - the rooms are a little 'tired' as is the hotel generally and I'm not sure that the Italian themed restaurant is a great hit (athough we didn't try it). But pound for pound, this is a good lace to saty for a short city break on a budget - happily use it again. Remember - this is not 4 star luxury and some of the reviews that are critical do seem to expect an awful ot for their money!

We needed to book something quickly and this hotel was available, What a beautiful little hotel set on the riverside with a water mill etc. Received a really nice welcome from reception! Room 227 was in the annexe part of the hotel, from the outside it reminded us of a Butlins holiday camp, but inside was lovely. Tea & coffee facilities, and bathing lotions provided. Excellent value for money! The shower is absolutely incredible! Power at its best! Probably not great for noise levels, and should possibly apologise to the neighbours in 226 & 228 as the walls were kind of thin! Didn't have breakfast, but I reckon that would have been great too! Only criticism would be the car park, very tight! Will defo return! Andi & James xx

I've just got back from the Old Mill Hotel, and to be honest i couldn't wait to write a review on here. The people who have put good reviews are either off their heads or they have no standards whatsoever! I was going to give it 1 star but because the staff were all quite friendly (or embarrassed to be working there) i gave it 2. I was on a business trip so only stayed two nights and spent most of the time in my room watching a VERY small t.v. Most of the things that are listed as being standard in the room were missing, like hairdryer, iron, ironing board etc.. The room i had was number 103 in the main building, it had a nice view of the river Avon and the toll bridge, however, the extremely large gap under the door (about 2 inches) let so much light in at night that i didn't have to turn the light on. The window which is double glazed PVC had a gap were it doesn't close properly so the traffic noise in the morning is horrendous. The carpet in my room was absolutely filthy, looked like it hadn't been hoovered for months. The whole place badly needs renovating, the carpets are all in bad need of upgrading. I only payed £90 for two nights so i suppose i got a good deal, but i overheard the manager on the phone taking a booking and he quoted £295 for 3 nights! If i'd payed anywhere near that i would be seeking a solicitor instead of writing this review. There are a lot of hotels around the area, and yes you'll pay more for them but at least you won't get home wanting a shower.... oh, that was something else, I had two showers while i was there, both freezing cold. Left it running, waiting for it to get warm...... 20 mins later, still ice cold! Don't waste your money!

We stayed here just before Christmas as we wanted easy access to the town, this was the perfect location, just a short drive. We stayed in the lodge which from the outside didn't look much but inside was clean, comfortable and modern. The bathroom was spacious with a lovely big power shower. We ate in the bar for dinner, the food was good and reasonably priced. The water mill and the river outside the restaurant was a great surprise, obviously during a summer visit this would be a real treat. We slept well, the room was warm and the bed was comfy and made up with quality bedding. We enjoyed a great full English in the morning from the buffet style server, with plenty of coffee and toast bought fresh to the table upon request. A bargain price for this stay and we'd definitely do it again.

Stayed on a wet and horrible Saturday night. Was apparently upgraded to the main hotel from the Lodge as they were quiet which looking at the Lodge I was pleased about. The Lodge is in the car park and resembles an American Motel set up so just make sure you know what you are booking before you click as I had no indication when I booked that they even had a lodge and assumed I was booking for the hotel. Nice clean room in main hotel with excellent heating and river view and balcony/walkway shared between two rooms. Ate in restaurant and food was very tasty although the advice to 'book as it gets busy' in hindsight was probably just a ploy to encourage you to eat in as there were only 2-3 other tables in use. Thought I had lucked in when I saw the jacuzzi type water-jet bath however it was non functioning . That said it was nice and large with plenty of hot water. At £82 for a Saturday Night wouldn't say it was exactly good value for money. Pleasant stay non the less.

this is the second time I have stayed at this hotel the first time was for business this time for a treat for my mum for Christmas. Lovely hotel, excellent breakfast, the restaurant food is tasty and enough of it. the view of the river outside is really nice to wake up to. How-ever.... the lights over the beds and the table light next to the beds are made of metal the cable was broken on one of the overhead lights and when I tried to turn it off it burned my hand. The table light, also made of metal, lost its glass covering when I tried to move it again burning my hand. I reported this to the reception and to be fair he came to the room and managed to remove the bulb, burning he's hand in the process, I cannot fault he's service an I hope he's hand is ok now. I really hope the hotel has rectified this huge problem as I would hate for a child to touch these lights their skin is a lot softer than mine and would cause more damage. I will be returning to this hotel asap as in my opinion it deserves a higher rating than the one it currently has. Clean, friendly staff amazing breakfast fabulous views what else could you ask for. Just get your lights changed please.

Nice hotel room. was adequate clean good size Good breakfast buffet, good choices😋 great location! short taxi ride into city centre would recommend and probably stay again nice pub just down the road serving reasonably priced food 🥘!!

Superior room a little small. Sheet & duvet barely covered bed. Carpet needed cleaning. Damp in corner of ceiling. Plumbing in bathroom requires attention. Great river view. Location very good. 1 hour walk to centre of Bath along canal.

Bath accomodation is notoriously expensive, so happy to find this place...clean room (in the lodge) a large shower, comfortable bed, + all the toiletries...and then a great breakfast in the restaurant which has the most wonderful views...everyone was most helpful...will return.

Lovely lunch menu, with a good selection of pasta and risotto and pizza dishes. Average price £9.95 Sunday lunches also good £10.95 including a drink. Great service, attentive and friendly. Lovely views over the river Avon and of a working waterwheel for interest!.
