Reviewed yesterday NEW

It is an old hotel but is very well kept. It has an elevator so it is fairly convenient. It is located right outside the Bath Spa Station and a five minute walk to the Royal Baths and the City Center. They allow bags to be stored after 12 noon check out so we had the time roaming around Bath...

We spent two very comfortable nights in this lovely hotel. It's position was perfect, especially as we travelled by train, and was opposite the station. Within a few minutes walk we were in the centre of Bath. The food in the hotel was absolutely delicious and the staff couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful. We loved it.

Booked a special deal at this hotel for 16/1/16. From our warm welcome at reception by Will to leaving my friend and I had a fabulous time. We asked at reception for advice on where and when to visit the Roman Baths to the Thermae Spa. Well, it was as if we had our own personal tour guide. We were...

Booked a discounted deal via Wowcher. Was able to book on site parking for just £8 for 24 hrs, bargain for the city centre. The hotel staff were wonderfully friendly and helpful. We booked for the visiting mobile beautician to come and do a luxurious massage and facial in our room after dinner so we received a free upgrade to...

A lovely,traditional hotel conveniently situated for the centre on the corner opposite the train station. Can't fault it. Immediately felt comfortable just walking through the front door. Friendly staff,comfortable room. Good selection of dishes for...

WOW - thank you for such a great experience. A traditional, old school hotel. No chrome or MDF - just good old fashioned service, homely unpretentious bedrooms, cosy lounges and a teeny tiny lift! A friend and I went for a birthday treat through a Groupon deal. Experience before on deals is that you don't get quite the same perks!...

Simply put, The Royal Hotel was absolutely sensational in every way -  be that the extremely friendly and helpful staff, the exquisite room or the location and ambience of the place.

We were not staying at this hotel but we have been in before for a drink and decided to do the same when we were in Bath this time, it was Friday 6pm and the front bar was busy, we ordered a bottle of wine and as there were not seats the bar tender suggested we went to the Isambard...

Thank you for your review Yes our main bar can become very busy on a Friday evening and as you say we recommend guests to use the adjacent Isambard Lounge Bar if there are no seats available in the “1846”, which is our main bar. I am sorry to read that you found the Isambard Bar not to your liking...

An old hotel,in a good location, close to the centre of Bath, about 50 yards from the railway station. We went on a Wowcher deal for an overnight stay. Cheerful, helpful staff made it an enjoyable stay. Good food and service. We intend to go back again.
