The Old Mill Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Actually rating would be good rather than average mainly because staff are friendly, helpful and pleasant. Room suitable to needs clean and comfortable. Walls looking a little tired in need of a touch up. Approach to reception carpet looks a little worn and jaded in need of a replacement methinks. Union Jack is somewhat frayed and has seen better days. Reataurant was clean, bright and spacious - just went in for drinks and lady running food and serving drinks was efficient, proficient, friendly and businesslike. Very good breakfast and reasonable cereal/ fruit juice/ fruits choice, too. Location tucked away and little difficult to find with quite narrow country roads. 🙂👍🏻

Had a very good overnight stay . Request for accessible room was delivered. Staff extememly helpful when we had a minor medical problem. Large room comfortable, clean and warm. Excelent breakfast wirh lovely views.

On visiting Bath we decided to stay over night. Found the Old Mill on the website not too far out of the centre of Bath so just needed a clean room and bed for the night. We pulled up to a wonderful old building right on the river Avon with a water wheel still in use, room was clean and modern, if anything the hall way carpets could do with changing but to our surprise we had a four poster bed, tea/coffee and a stunning river side view, room 109 in main building. Buffet breakfast was good with attentive staff. We walked over the bridge to have food at the near by pub/restaurant, for a quiet Sunday night this place had glasses and plates left on all the tables so we couldn't find anywhere to sit, waited for staff to clear a table but they seemed to busy doing nothing. So decided to try the Italian restaurant in the hotel, we were soooo glad we did as not only had we had a great view of the waterwheel we also had a wonderful 3 course meal. We will definitely return to this hidden gem on the Avon.

Our Family held a wake there, Food was average pizza, sausage Rolls. Sandwiches. Had to Pay for Teas and Coffees which was disgusting, Bar was far to pricey! To top it all off Management continously rang demanding payment the same day we said goodbye to a loved one was rude and then hung up when didn't get the answer they wanted. DO NOT visit this place not worth the money or hassle

This hotel is about 2 miles outside the centre of bath, either a short drive or walkable distance to the centre. The hotel is in a wonderful setting, with it's working water wheel and being on the countryside. There are several country pubs within a few minutes walk, but this hotel has an Italian restaurant and bar area. The rooms have everything you would need, comfortable bed. The breakfast was a buffet style but tea/coffee and toast is served to the table. I struggle to find anything negative about this hotel, but 2 things to mention, if you get a room on the lower level you can hear footsteps from the room above also the car park is quite small, but as we managed to get the last space this wasn't an issue. I would highly recommend, its worth the money.

We got the by luck, just a random search and it was close, cheap and the rate included a full breakfast. Lovely room with a balcony over looking the water wheel - it generates the entire energy usage for the hotel, apparently the only one currently in the U.K. The view also included a medieval bridge that collected a toll to go across - its privately owned by the family who built it way back when.

Short break,room in lodge clean,shower room good,a good selection of TVs channels had meal in connected Italian restaurant great meal reasonable price £32 two courses for 2 people,would stay again,parking limited,

We stayed at this hotel 28th February and was pleasantly surprised it is very handy to the M4 .Check in was very easy we were meeting a friend in Bath so we early the gentleman on reception got us a taxi and was most courteous .When we came back mid afternoon we were given our keys to room 230 in the lodge it was Ok very clean nice view over the river also the Water Wheel which generated the electricity for the Hotel .The main windows curtains were terrible the rail must have come down at one point and whoever put it back up should have went to Specsavers .The phone didn't work and neither did the TV my husband found the maintenance man who managed to get 2 channels for us . We had booked a table in the Italian Restaurant and that was lovely the Wheel was right outside the window and the Lighting Outside made for a beautiful setting .The Meal was beautiful one of the best Italian Meals we have had .Sylvia was the waitress and she was lovely we thoroughly enjoyed our evening .Sylvia was also on duty at Breakfast again she was most welcoming .The Breakfast itself was Excellent again lovely views from the Breakfast Room .When we came to check out the manager was again on Duty and I spoke to him about the Room he explained that it is going to be rebuilt but because of the rebuilding of the wheel this has had to be put back .We will go back but will stay in the hotel but surely someone can fix the rail properly it isn't a big job .

Located on the riverside with a real working water wheel. Hot buffet breakfast with a lovely view. Comfortable beds, in room tea and coffee, free parking, decent bathroom, on site restaurant and bar, juliette balcony, very close to Bath - you could even walk it. What more do you want at this price ?

Visited for one night and arrived prior to check in time. Friendly greeting at reception and was advised that the room was ready for occupancy, had requested a disabled parking bay for parking (they did not have any)but they had taken information on board and allocated a room on the ground floor near to reception. I had read mixed reviews so did not know what to expect. The room was large and had a sofa which was placed in direct view of the large flat screen t.v. There was the usual tea making facilities and toiletries. The room was perfectly clean with crisp white bed linen and a really comfortable bed. The toilet was modern,well tiled and had an excellent shower.We were able to have some time outside enjoying the view of the river, enjoyed a meal in the restaurant,mainly Italian cuisine but I opted for the steak and my husband the lamb shank. The service was good and chef obliging when I requested extra pepper sauce.Breakfast was buffet with a good selection and quality of products.Located within easy reach of Bath. The rooms outside of the main building did not look as large so may not make a good comparison.
