We stayed in this hotel before and had a good time. This time we had a great time! The big drawback last time was the unreliable wifi, which has now been fixed. Our room was a better room, small but convenient and beautifully furnished with all we could need, including a cafetiere with ground coffee. The hotel is right opposite... More

Just on our way home now! After an absolutely outstanding stay at the Royal! Yet again. Cannot recommend the hotel highly enough, all staff are fantastic, polite, helpful, nothing is too much trouble. The value for money is exceptional!!!! Couldn't be in a better location if arriving by train. We had both evening meals and breakfasts in the Brasserie Brunel... More

Booked hotel as closest to station and as single, female traveller didn't want to have to get taxi. Outside appearance quite drab but once inside was nicely presented. Very pleasant receptionist, booked in easily and ventured in to small lift to room 302. I had requested room on front of hotel with shower and this is what I was given.... More

Have just spent four nights at the Royal Hotel which was a great choice for a visit to Bath. Pretty central - right opposite the railway station and a short walk to the Abbey and Roman Baths. There were no superior rooms available but the room we had - a twin overlooking the station - was very comfortable with great... More

Old hotel with limited facilities including only 6 parking spaces. The room (311) looked tired but was sufficient for one night. Arrived early but wasn't allowed into the room until 1430hrs. The room was draughty from the old window. The bed was comfortable enough. The shower was just about adequate , not much water pressure. Breakfast was good although slightly... More

Thank you for your review following your recent stay with us. I regret that you felt that room 311 “looked tired” as it has only recently been redecorated and refurbished.

The hotel is literally across the road from Bath Spa railway station. I know it's almost Christmas and you'd expect a bit "extra" but there's so much more to this grade II listed building than you would imagine for the price. I've stayed in much costlier hotels and not had a free bottle of mineral water at my bedside for... More

Very friendly and helpful staff. Although the hotel is old, it is very clean. Rooms have everything you need. The location is perfect - opposite station and near shops. The breakfast is great - all you can eat cold buffet, and a great choice of cooked options available. The evening meals are very nicely cooked and tasty - nice menu.... More
