Stayed here on a weekend getaway In May lovely room 4 poster bed spectacular views with a lovely pub just over the bridge Restaurant was decent with a nice working milk wheel as a backdrop You can do a boat trip into central bath too If you can negotiate the tricky one way system of bath I highly recommend it for a trip Thermae baths a highlight !

Stayed overnight with my husband. Welcomed at reception by pleasant gentleman. All staff polite and helpful. Our room was specified as being a superior double with views of water. Room didn't feel superior. Interior looking very tired, needing up to date furnishings. No hairdryer in room, or fridge. Good TV but wiifi you had to pay extra for. Basic tea and coffee supplied, no bottled water. All needs a good clean. Breakfast was included and good variety of cooked and continental with toast and choice hot drinks. Breakfast room pleasant, bright and views over wier, water wheel and river. Overall stay OK but probably wouldn't return.good location, 10 minutes from Bath by road. On bus route, good walks around area.

Lovely setting and marketed in a very clever way, however, reality very different. Had a superior room which had nothing superior about it. Had very dated decor and extremely small, to the point you could only get in and out of bed one side. Bathrooms clearly been refurbished recently and a real shame they haven't done the rest of the room. Hotel staff very rude and not interested in trying to make your stay an enjoyable one. Needless to say we only slept there and used the two other establishments over the road for drinks and food, who were only too glad to give good customer service in return for our custom. Wouldn't stay here ever again!

I stayed here in a party of 4, where we had two different rooms. The setting is beautiful and the views outside of the hotel are amazing. Travelling into Bath is very easy either by driving, by boat, walking (takes an hour along the canel) or cab (around £10). The rooms have everything you need, and are clean. There is however no mattress protectors on the beds and although I stayed there two nights the room was not cleaned - and therefore no extra toilet paper was added etc. There was also a lot of noise from people in the bar below - on a week day. The staff were very nice, however I waited 10 minutes for someone at reception at one point and went down to the bar to ask for someone but was told just to go back and wait... which was frustrating. The breakfast was a buffet style but offered a cooked breakfast, toast, cereal and fruit so there was something for everyone. I think that this is a great location, with decent rooms, to improve the rating I would add a mattress protector, provide better quality sheets and ensure that someone is at the reception considering it is said to be 24 hours. I did enjoy my stay. The hotel is not accessible, there are steps to all the bedrooms and the stairs up to the first floor are very steep. Also, the car park isn't great, one of the parties brand new car got scratched while in the car park by another car - no note was left sadly. Although this isn't the fault of the hotel the parking situation isn't ideal.

One of the nicest place to stay in Bath, the staff are very friendly and the rooms are very clean, the best of all is the fabulous location, the rooms are very neat and tidy will definitely recommend to others.

Like all of you I read the reviews on trip advisor and approached the hotel with some trepidation but it was in vain. I found the staff to be nice and helpful and our room was nice and clean. As we'd arrived on a hot day the Windows had been opened prior to our arrival so it wasn't stuffy and hot. The restaurant was nice even if the stock levels where a little low the food was really nice and well worth the price. The staffing level wasn't great but they work really hard to stay on top of the service. I would love to stay here again and would highly recommend it to anyone else.

We enjoyed our stay. The room was clean and well appointed for the price. We loved the lovely location. However, our room was on the parking lot side and it was a lot noisier than I would have expected.

On a tour of Uk, I stayed here for 2 weeks. First perception was good but as the stay proceeded my opinion changed somewhat. Due to the both up and down from the breakfast room and the main restaurant and bar, I was given a more suitable but smaller room lower down. Pros : rooms clean and tidy. The views fantastic. Restaurant available for evening meals which were excellent. Cons : breakfast just a standard buffet which greatly improved the last few days with the chef providing me with a freshly cooked meal. Wi Fi signal totally erratic and frustrating. Bar service intermittent during afternoons.

Hotel is in a beautiful location and looks so pretty from the outside. Rooms are not worth what is charged, they are like a cheap motel in a 50s horror movie... the bathrooms look like they were refurbished recently, it's just a shame about the rest of the room. The place is also infested with flies and spiders, I know this cannot be helped as the hotel is near the canal, but it is clear that no effort has been made to rid of the insects. I wouldn't stay at the hotel again, but there is a nice one over the bridge that looks like it has been given some TLC.

We had our cousin over from USA and stayed here. The rooms were dirty, human hair on the carpet which was mouldy and stained, sink taps broken, dirty tables windows chairs in dining area. Couldn't swing a cat in our room! I had to climb over the bed to get into bed. I complained to the chap in reception he asked me to complete a feed back form and despite writing to owners several times I've had no reply back. I would suggest you DO NOT STAY HERE UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE! It's awful!!!
