Macdonald Bath Spa Hotel

Sydney Rd, Bath BA2 6NS, UK – 0344 879 9106

The staff and food were amazing. However, the executive room wasn't the same as the one pictured during booking. It wasn't as modern but it was still very nice and the staff offered us free Proseco and chocolates as compensation. The spa was the highlight and completely made the entire weekend away. Amazing spa!

Beautiful setting, impressive building historically (feels rather pretentious though), the room was lovely and we enjoyed the spa although it looks a bit dated; treatments we got (facial and massage) were good. On the negative side: Service was quite slow and we had to wait until 3:30pm to be accommodated, which is too late for a 5 star hotel. It didn't help that we were promised to be told as soon as room was ready, and nobody bothered doing so until we asked ourselves at reception. Overall I'd recommend it if you get a good deal on the price, but you will need all the patience you could muster to make it enjoyable.

Francis Hotel Bath - MGallery Collection

6-12 Queen Square, Bath BA1 2HH, UK – 01225 424105

The front desk staff was very helpful and capable face-to-face. However, I struggled with the phone not being picked up a few times when calling from my room. Also, the laundry service 24hr turnaround is too long; requests like a quick steam should be dealt with sooner. The restaurant service was pretty bad. Orders were taken wrongly, some dishes came after the rest of the table had finished their meal. The ravioli was bland and undercooked. At breakfast the service is extremely slow with serving drink; our hot chocolate took 15 minutes to arrive and only after we had to chase for our order. The parking arrangement with the cards is awkward. You should be able to use your room key to open the barrier. Or alternatively, you should be told that you need a card from reception; we spent 5 minutes at the barrier trying to figure out how to open it. At the beginning we were given a room at the street level right next to the traffic. For the price they are charging, that room is unacceptable. The front desk staff dealt with it beautifully though and got us a much better room straight away. The double bed in our room was actually 2 beds put together. That is usually fine if there is one mattress on top but that was not the case. It makes it quite uncomfortable and awkward for a couple to share the same bed. At the bar we ordered the charcuterie platter which I found disappointingly limited and small. There should be more than a slice of each meat on there. It just looked bare and left much to be wanted. The decor of the hotel is lovely. We appreciated how there was a nice scent throughout the reception and staircases. The fresh flowers are a great touch!

Very warm welcome by reception staff. We arrived well before check in time but the concierge offered to park the car in the hotel car park which allowed us to start enjoying our break in Bath immediately. When we returned to check in we were offered an upgrade to superior rooms. Decor and colours in the hotel very much of the Georgian period and a few uneven floorboards but all expected given the age of the building. Our rooms were lovely and spacious and had a huge bed!! Good pillows! There was a coffee machine as well as the usual tray facilities and an iron and ironing board which is a nice added detail. Would have appreciated improved lighting in the bedroom - but we always find that a problem in any hotel we stay in. Fortunately I managed to put my make up on in the shower room which was well appointed. Nice to have bath sheet towels for a change. Everywhere was very clean and fresh. Only niggle was the disturbance from the road outside as our rooms overlooked the square. However, this lovely hotel is extremely well placed for shops, restaurants and attractions that it can only be expected.

Abbey Hotel

N Parade, Bath BA1 1LF, UK – 01225 461603

I got the deluxe family room for 1/2 price and had a good rest in a nice big room and bed. Hotel provided a fan already in room and I could open up two windows. Excellent mojitos and food was good. Protein-based vegetarian options were limited but adequate. Breakfast provided a fruit salad and a selection of fresh fruit and nuts as well as a vegetarian breakfast. All in all quite enjoyable.

This is a fantastic hotel and the restaurant is also a must. We sat outside and enjoyed great (witty) service & hospitality. Posh & down-to-earth. The rooms were incredibly clean with hints of a boutique-y makeover. Would strongly recommend to anyone visiting Bath.

Pubs, Gastro Pubs and Bars

King William

36 Thomas St, Bath BA1 5NN, UK – 01225 428096

The staff were very accommodating without a reservation on Easter Sunday. Only a set menu was available (not the bar menu) - we found the starters to be great, almost fine dining style and the roasts for main were the best roast dinners we have eaten out for a long time. (We are from London and have tried quite a few pub lunches!) The restaurant got busy from 2pm where service got less attentive hence 4 stars rather than 5. Great place for good food and good wine. £80 for 2 people - 2 courses and wine/coffee

Hello We came to the King William for dinner this evening. It was our wedding anniversary and although we are local we have never eaten there. We enjoyed our meal: my husband though the pork belly dish delicious, and I loved the black squid ink tagliatelle. The hake was good but rather small. However, we were not told about or offered the Bar Menu but only given the A La Carte menu.i. Typically we would probably have ordered a range of food from both menus and spent a similar amount had we been aware of a wider choice. My desert was no more than an assembly of banana, cold banana cake and mouse and as such was disappointing. A couple of portions of fat chips would have been better value and filled the gap left by the A La Carte menu. We would like to return and as we run a bed and breakfast and advise our guests on local eateries we will certainly not fail to inform them of the Bar Menu! Kind regards NH

The Marlborough Tavern

35 Marlborough Buildings, Bath BA1 2LY, UK – 01225 423731

We enjoyed an early dinner and were more than satisfied by the friendly and professional service as well as the comfortable atmosphere. This place isn't stuffy, but they take pride in their service. I highly recommend the Marlborough Tavern for a casual night out.

Traditional English pub fayre with a great restaurant menu on top. Attentive service, and a paved courtyard for outdoor drinking. Could do with a few more craft beers.

The Chequers

50 Rivers St, Bath BA1 2QA, UK – 01225 360017

Chequers is a great pub for food in Bath, very relaxing environment and the service was very good, friendly and personal. I can agree with some of the other reviews, our turbot was also close to undercooked, the pork loin I ordered to be "pink" was actually slightly overcooked. The triple cooked chips were poor. That said, I would definitely recommend! It feels local which is nice, on what should have been a busy Friday service it felt quiet, prices were reasonable but toppy.

I cannot recommend this place enough, the food is simply delicious and the service is kind and attentive. The pace at which the plates are served is well measured and you never feel rushed or pressured to vacate the table. The size of the portions is fair, although some greedy ones out there may argue about its scarcity. For me, they are ideal as I like to experience the journey starter-main-dessert, particularly when trying a promising place for the first time. My girlfriend and me both had meat as a main (duck and venison) and they were flawless, the meat perfectly cooked. Hopefully next time we will be able to try their fish and experience the same delight. By the way, their veggie starter (beetroot) is excellent and the veggie main (artichoke) also remains in our waiting list. As dessert, we went for chocolate fondant and banana caramelised. I cannot really tell which one I prefer, as they are both delightful, not excessively sweet and surprisingly light. All in all, we had a fantastic experience and cannot wait to repeat on our next visit to Bath!

Travel Super Market search and compare prices for hotels all over the world. Could also be useful for you. I This said I was told by a hotelier that the way to get cheap rooms is to ring up the week before and ask for the weekend rate. You can usually get an absolute bargain as they will trying to book all the rooms that they have not sold! Could be worth a try!

Bed & Breakfast Accommodation plus Guesthouses

Weston Lawn

Lucklands Road, Weston, Bath BA1 4AY, UK – 01225 421362

excellent place to stay

Stayed 4 nights here when visiting the west country. Great place to stay with great breakfast, either continental or full English. We stayed in the smaller Red room one night and the larger Garden Room three nights.

Beckford House

59 Upper Oldfield Park, Bath BA2 3LB, UK – 01225 310005

Bottom line: This is a lovely b&b. We received a warm welcome, and the house and room were beautiful. It was clean and comfortable, close to town if you enjoy a nice walk. My partner and I visited Beckford House over the Easter bank holiday weekend and we will certainly be repeating the journey if we can! The accommodation was beautifully presented and possessed everything you could want on a weekend break (including the foresight to provide you a corkscrew and glasses for bringing your own wine). The cooked breakfast was perfect comprised of all fresh ingredients from the local farmers market, including a delicious coffee and an extensive selection of preserves. Anthony was so welcoming and helpful, he offered us maps, suggestions for where to go and even offered to drive us up to a marvellous view point overlooking the city on our final day (as we were visiting on foot). We left feeling more like we'd been round visiting an old friend rather than leaving a business. Can't wait to return!

Bodhi House

31A Englishcombe Ln, Bath BA2 2EE, UK – 01225 461990

We loved our stay at Bodhi house! Cathrine and Jamie were incredible hosts - sincere, kind, and helpful. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. They also had the best breakfasts we had in the UK. We would highly recommend staying at Bodhi house!

My daughter held her hen weekend at Bodhi House on Friday 11 March. Before we arrived the owners took in our food delivery and put everything in the fridge/freezer etc. Then on arrival we were greeted by Jamie and shown around. The house is both modern, cosy and well kept throughout. The kitchen was extremely well equipped, it had everything you could have asked for. The beds were comfy and the bedding was of a high standard. Every bathroom was modern and clean. We had a fabulous time and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this as a place to stay with a group of friends or as a B&B.

If you would like something truly different you might like to have a look at Airbnb. These are mostly B and Bs provided by people on a very informal basis. The may have a spare room, a yurt, a cottage or a barge with space they can receive guests for a night or a month! The website is highly professional. You can really see what you are going to get. Very well worth a look. Airbnb also show 'conventional' B&Bs as well. Enjoy!

Stayed here a few times and love it. Always a warm welcome from the owners. Perfectly situated for visiting Bath. Cycle path, bus stop and cotswold way all nearby, and of course good pubs.

Great location and bath is a beautiful city

Bath Marina & Caravan Park

Brassmill Lane, Bath, Bath Somerset BA1 3JT, UK – 01225 424301

Some pitch locations are much, much better than others. Very helpful and friendly staff. River Avon/canal pass along site which provides a pleasant walk into the city (about 50mins). Or you can hire a bike on site ( a handy alternative to walking!). Two good riverside pubs are nearby for meals and drinks. Will stay again.

Great location for cycling in the Bristol and Bath railway path. A busy site with vans parked close together but still quite quiet. A bit pricey for what you get.
