Ok hotel, nice spa, disappointing service
Service was really disappointing, they seem to be really understaffed. However we did enjoy the spa, which had a nice vibe and a nice outdoor hot pool. We were also disappointed that the bar was closed before 11, when we were told it was open to at least 1 am by the main desk. Room service was also not available after 11pm which was different to what we were told. Staff seemed fed up and frustrated. We kind of felt sorry for them but as stated they just don’t seem to be enough of them for the hotel to run efficiently.

Terrible Experience and Appalling Service
I stayed in this hotel in August 2019 with my friend as we wanted a nice spa break in Bath and chose this hotel based on its excellent reputation and good reviews. The service we received was not, however, what we expected. Firstly, DO NOT buy a package as it is a complete waste of money! We booked a spa package and we were told at reception once we had arrived there that nothing was included in our package and all the treatments and services that we had been promised in our package were, in fact, extra and we would have to pay for them separately. When we went to reception to raise our concerns about our package, the staff were very rude to us and talked down to us like we were children (just because we looked young) which I would argue is age discrimination. The service we received was absolutely appalling, and I would not even be expected to be treated like that in Retail Customer Services, let alone a five-star hotel! This was very disappointing and actually ruined our whole holiday, which we spent a lot of money on, and were not even able to enjoy it to the full extent. I do wonder how this hotel received its five stars because I have stayed in hotels with lower ratings in the past that have not only looked nicer, but the staff were actually respectful. I would NOT recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to be treated with respect and to people who would like to enjoy a peaceful time away. I will most certainly NOT be coming back as it is a waste of time and money.

Beautiful hotel
Beautiful hotel and good location, fantastic room and lovely facilities. The staff were really helpful and polite although breakfast seemed hectic with staff run off their feet towards the end. This just proved the popularity of the hotel though so not really a negative. I did however take issue with having to pay £15 for parking when I was a resident of the hotel- for 5* luxury things like parking should be included and I found this unfair but I had to drive there so I had no choice. Having said that I would definitely stay here again and just factor in the parking charges.
