Booked for a New Years weekend away. It was.. okay. Bit meh. The room size was good, as expected, comfortable bed but very dated decor. It looks bright and fresh in the pictures but it really is very dated and mismatched. Bathroom was modern though. Room facilities were basic, much what you’d expect from a travel lodge (and this is a 5* b&b..) Breakfast was disappointing. The continental options are bran flakes or cornflakes. Then melon, apple or oranges and I think yoghurt. And some weetabix breakfast biscuits.. again this is a 5* b&b. We had the cooked breakfast, I had the vegetarian traditional.. and was served two meat sausages. I didn’t complain, just left them to the side and mentioned it when I left the (tiny) dining room. They glanced at my plate and denied they were meat. I don’t think they realised I had cut into both and tried a piece- having to spit it into my napkin when it was unmistakably real meat. We decided to skip breakfast on our remaining days. Overall.. okay but wouldn’t book here again.

Don't like to do a critical review, but £170 per night for basement room is just insulting...most *4 or 5* now have better coffee making facilities too. Think hotel (B&B)owner is relying too much on room sizes. I thought it was a superior room and the cost of the room means I got a view...but no... no view ...room far too hot, had to open window all night and then heard road noise. The reviews of the decent room sizes was a bit of a decoy..been to better places for same price. Think there's a level of complacency. Hope it improves, this room should have been down banded a standard double with no view. For £100 per night. I rebooked this from needing to cancel due to lock down but think I would have gone elsewhere now. They need to use more space for breakfast room as other review said too small for number of guests. Cooked breakfast and waiting staff good, but cereals/continental ..etc was just *2 bit lame really. The outside no christmas lights...which would have been nice touch, had a wee tree in lounge but could have been more wow... Bath lovely as always and the location is good, so if they step there game up, it could be amazing.

We have just come back from an overnight stay and we definitely won’t be returning. We booked one of their smaller cheaper rooms and the line “you get what you pay for” very much comes to mind. The receptionist upon reaching the 3rd floor suggested that “we may wish to catch our breath before we prepare to have it taken away when we enter our room” - couldn’t have been further from the truth!! Our room was situated on the top floor and whilst a decent enough size it was anything but comfortable. Firstly, the temperature, even though we turned the radiators off our room remained tropical, so much so neither of us used duvet overnight. We could have opened the window, but as the hotel is situated on a very busy road and our room was facing it, the noise wouldn’t have been bearable. The bed in our room was so low we both burst out laughing, I think they forgot to put the legs on. The mattress, duvet and pillows were all cheap and coupled with the temperature in our room neither of us slept well. At breakfast we were given a specific time slot, I suspect due to covid restrictions, but also because the dining room was too small to accommodate all the guests staying, which led to guests being turned away and others chased out as they tried to sit (they had jumped the queue of waiting dinners). The breakfast itself was nice enough and well presented. Plus points, you can park at the hotel, a rare thing in Bath and the bathroom was well designed although in need of a paint job. We recently stayed at The Bird next door, which was about £60 more expensive than The Arlington for a similar sized room and the extra money is 100% worth spending. We won’t make the same mistake again.

This was our 4th stay at the Ayrlington and for the first time we left feeling a little disappointed. When we arrived there was no parking available either in the car park or outside the front of the hotel. It was suggested that we park in the bowls club next door....for a fee of £5! We had no option, but later had to move our car and leave it on the main road for the duration of our stay. As ever we found the rooms warm and comfortable, with the hotel itself in a great location. Having booked our breakfast slot when we checked in with our friends, disappointingly we were not permitted to sit with each other, even though we were initially advised that two tables could be pulled together. I guess this is something we are getting used to with Covid. The breakfast was good, although the continental choice wasn't available on our first morning. Returning to the hotel later that day, we asked if we could book breakfast the following morning a little later. We were met with a brusque reply that we should have booked it that morning and there were no later slots. How did we know what the protocol was? While we accepted the reasoning, the manner in which we were told left us all quite shocked. Will we return to Bath? Probably. Will we return to the Ayrlington? Probably not.

The room was really spacious and the beds comfortable, however 5 star hotel this definitely is not. Breakfast was ok for me with smoked salmon and scrambled eggs but both my sister’s mushrooms and sausages were very overcooked. The bathroom as you can see, had dust and mould under the radiator where the towels hang. The seal on the shower door was coming away, the shower door kept sliding open when you’re using it. The toilet roll holder came away from the wall first time my sister used it! The bedside lampshade was broken. The light above the beds was missing several bulbs. Bath however is a wonderful place and we will return in the summer (but stay at rooms at ‘eight’).
