Small twin room (Carnation room) but perfectly adequate for mother and daughter overnight stay. Lovely bathroom - perfect for a soak after a day's shopping. Must mention Johnny on reception who really put himself out to make our stay perfect. Nothing was too much trouble for him and he is a huge asset to this hotel.

After cross checking information and recommendation scores from both booking.com and tripadvisor.com, me and my sister chose - alleged 5 star - Ayrlington hotel for our two days stay in Bath (Wednesday 8th and Thursday 9th of November 2016). We have recently stayed in quite a few pretty decent and even exquisite guesthouses and hotels in Bath and I must...

Ayrlington, Manager at The Ayrlington, responded to this review

It is extremely hard to respond to such a review. Whilst we fully recognise that these guests are upset, their portrayal of how the situation was handled is neither accurate nor fair. All guests at the Ayrlington are always treated with the utmost respect and professionalism from all its staff members with no exceptions and i totally dispute certain comments...

Unbeknown to me, my wife and the excellent and attentive staff were planning the perfect stay for the pair of us in this fantastic hotel since August. On arrival we were welcomed in by David on reception. David is a thoroughly helpful bloke and has the perfect, "nothing is too much trouble", attitude. From the moment we arrived to the...

My wife and I booked one of the hotels premium rooms for a one night stay to enjoy the Bath Christmas Market. This is the second time we have stayed here and sadly the last. Parking was tight but not a real issue, the staff are polite and proffesional. My first problem was the room. Having seen the rooms online...

Stayed the night at the Ayrlington last week. David looked after us and made us feel very welcome. Great to be able to park outside. Lovely breakfast and comfy beds. Great location to be able to walk into town.

I managed to park my car in the car park and there it stayed for the two nights, due to the easy walking distance to the town. The lounge was welcoming on arrival and a useful and comfortable meeting point. Stayed in the Victorian room. It was decorated appropriately for its theme, was clean, spacious, comfortable and had everything I...

Very nice Hotel. Visited on the wettest day in November. Could have done with a canopy/umbrella somewhere outside to protect the smokers. Room was very nice, and the breakfast was excellent. Parking was a little difficult although acheivable.

I was due to be in Bath this past Monday and had booked at The Ayrlington. Due to the weather I had been unable to get to Bath. I phoned the hotel at 8pm to inform them that, despite being at Paddington station for 4 hours, there was very little chance I was going to get to Bath so decided...

It is never our intention to disappoint any guest, however clearly on this occasion this reviewer was quite upset about being charged for the late cancellation. However for the sake of balance we would like to point out that our cancellation policy is 72 hours prior to arrival which is well within the industry normality. Having phoned at 8pm to...

We were very pleasantly surprised to find ease of parking when we arrived early evening. Our room, the Range, was on the lower ground floor and was a very good size with the bathroom having both a walk in shower and a bath. The only let down was the poor lighting in the bedroom itself. As others have said it...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Built of golden Bath stone, The Ayrlington is a large and handsome English Heritage listed building set in a splendid walled oriental garden with exceptional views of the City and its medieval Abbey. Bath's magnificent historic sites, speciality shops and excellent restaurants are all just a five minutes level stroll away. The Ayrlington's elegant and tranquil interior is a graceful blend of English and Asian antiques, artwork, fine fabrics and Egyptian cotton bedlinen - all 18 bedrooms have an individual theme and are beautifully furnished, some with four poster beds. The emphasis is on creating an atmosphere of peace and tranquility in the centre of Bath's vibrant city centre. The Ayrlington has a licensed residents' bar, secure on-site private parking and is entirely non smoking. We do not accept children under 5 years of age. The Ayrlington's ongoing commitment to quality has brought some well deserved and hard earned awards - five stars from The AA and Visit Britain, AA Premier Collection, a listing in The Good Hotel Guide and multiple Bath in Bloom garden awards. ... more   less
