We spent one night at this wonderful hotel and I wished it could have been longer. We loved everything about the stay from start to finish . The owners and their staff were a delight and nothing was too much trouble. The room was spotless and the bathroom lovely with an excellent shower ,lovely products in the bathroom too ! We had evening meal in the Restuarant which was 3 courses and absolutely excellent , and the breakfast on the following morning amazing ! Can't wait to re visit and next time will definitely stay longer!

Party of 6 for dinner on 12th December. Meals ok, service not so good.probably not enough staff. Long wait between courses, very off putting. Steak very much overpriced at £26.00. choices were varied. Desserts good.

I liked everything about this hotel. Comfortable, quiet, clean room. Wonderful breakfast in a very pleasant room. Friendly helpful staff. Large shower, massive bath, excellent toiletries, and good tea facilities in the room. Although the pub downstairs was packed no noise filtered up to the bedroom. Good secure parking, great location.

Room Tip: Phone the hotel to ask what room would suit you.

The Methuen Arms is an excellent base for exploring Bath and the beautiful surrounding villages. Both room and bathroom were clean, very comfortable and nicely decorated. The staff were helpful and friendly however could do with paying extra attention to detail. At dinner the waitress brought over my glass of red wine which had spilt on to the base of the glass subsequently dripping on to my silk pashmina; not impressed! At breakfast my poached egg was hard boiled! Otherwise the service and standard of food was good. I would stay here again.

Before February 2017, The Methuen Arms was a truly wonderful place to stay. The food was fantastic. The owners was delightful, and the service was excellent.

We stayed in November 2017, six months after a change of hands and management, and sadly there was a notable decline in the quality we had previously enjoyed.

Many of the reviews here relate to the previous period when this was undoubtedly a wonderful place to stay, but sadly, based on our recent experience it seems to have gone downhill rather rapidly, under new management.

We had multiple smaller problems throughout our stay, none of which were worth noting here, in themselves, but which collectively pointed to a marked decline (systems not working, normally-expected things not available, obvious issues with basic maintenance; all fixable and, indeed, fixed for us, but too many for pure coincidence).

What is worth noting in more detail in this review, because it was the most disappointing aspect of all, was that the food, although undoubtedly nice when originally prepared, was barely mediocre by the time it reached our table. We had to wait 45 mints and it had very clearly been reheated in the meantime, and, as a result was barely adequate.

This is particularly disappointing considering this was such a wonderful place to eat in the the past.

The decor in the rooms and the quality of bathroom fittings remains excellent and the bedding and general level of comfort was good. However, under this new management with such glaring evidence of a slipshod approach compared to the previous management, I can well imagine that this will decline from its current relatively high quality.

Room Tip: if you liked it before February 2017, beware: it changed hands
