Another excellent stay at the Halcyon. Excellent location to the city centre with the staff achieving their high levels of customer care and attention yet again. This really is the best place to stay in Bath and can't be beaten.

We loved it! After checking in Bob carried most of our luggage up to our room which was a sweet surprise. After the trek upstairs (honestly not that bad & we need the exercise!), the room was small but WONDERFUL. The bed and pillows, superb! And the shower, I can't say enough about the shower, It did get warm in...

Stayed here to visit family living in area and, as always, made to feel more than welcome. Friendly staff go out of their way to help. Need to book early as always full, which is in itself a recommendation.

Important to note upfront that this was our fourth annual visit to The Halcyon and we have never had a complaint - the staff are superb, the rooms have been first rate (yes, the sizes do differ but they are all of the highest quality e.g. extremely comfortable beds, monsoon power showers, very clean), and it is in the best...

Brilliant location - a minutes walk from the heart of Bath. The room was small and a little warm - but that's par for the course in that sort of location. Dont get hung up in that. The service at this hotel is first rate and it is tastefully appointed too. A nice little bonus is that in the basement...

Great location and room is OK. Very young staff who do their best BUT.... Broken hair dryer, broken bulb, if you want a coffee in their small lounge don't expect to get served! YOU have to go downstairs to the bar to get it and bring it back. Oh, and you can't out the cost on your room - cash...

We stayed at the Halcyon in November 2013 and were so disappointed with the experience, especially after reading all the positive reviews. We were put in room G3 and told we had been upgraded! This was rubbish and we later had to endure the experience of a room being above the late night bar below (open until 3am!). We had...

Hi Jojo, Thanks for reviewing the Halcyon, it is such a shame you didn’t enjoy your stay with us and I agree, there were circumstances which shouldn’t have been the case or come to the attention of any of our guests. You had been upgraded to a larger room from our standard double. We don’t usually get noise complaints from...

Stayed here with friends as visiting Bath spa. Traditional hotel decorated in very modern way. Great rooms, clean with great facilities. Our room was a little small, we stayed in room just behind reception. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Breakfast lots of variety, served downstairs in room which the previous night had been a club/bar- not that you would...
